    Review Farpoint

    Starship gloopers

    Farpoint is both the most innovative and primitive first-person shooter you’ll play this year. The next tentpole PlayStation VR title, this sci-fi story whisks you away to an alien planet and arms you with a brand new peripheral to keep the space bugs at bay. Thus, while the game design can feel decidedly dated at times, it’s...

  • News Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Is No Simple PS4 Remaster

    It's being reworked for modern times

    According to producer Hiroaki Kato, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age isn't just some simple remaster. Speaking to French publication Finaland, Kato reveals that the development team spent a huge amount of time tweaking and rebalancing the game for a modern audience. "We didn't want to simply make a...

  • News Ubisoft Teases 'A New Era' of Assassin's Creed

    Here we go again

    What? There's a new Assassin's Creed game coming? Who would have guessed? The heavily rumoured Assassin's Creed Origins - previously known as Assassin's Creed Empire - will supposedly take place in Egypt, and it'll mark the return of naval transport and combat. There's even been a leaked

    Review Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy

    Mission: Aborted

    Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy is the follow-up to Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy - a dungeon crawler which arrived on the PlayStation Vita in 2015 to some fairly average review scores. Experience Inc. has released some really good dungeon crawlers on Sony's handheld, so you'd hope that for Operation Babel it would take some...

  • News A Bunch of B-Tier PS4 Titles Go on Sale in US

    The Technomancer, Farming Simulator, more

    Focus Home Interactive is probably this generation's most prominent b-tier publisher. For several years now, it's been pumping the PlayStation 4 full of titles that aren't quite AAA blockbusters - but they're not digital-only indie-style escapades, either. The kind of games that reviewers give 6s and 7s...

    Review Akiba's Beat

    Just beat it

    If you're a fan of Japan and its wonderful culture then you'll probably be aware of Akihabara, a district in Tokyo filled with all manner of delights that will get any otaku salivating at the thought of it. It's a haven for geeks with plenty of shops filled with anime, manga, collectable cards and figurines, as well as maid cafés for...

  • News Here's How Resident Evil: Revelations Looks on PS4

    The first one, to be clear

    Capcom refuses to rest until you can play every version of Resident Evil on the PlayStation 4, and… Y’know, we were going to finish this sentence with something snarky, but we suppose there are worse things the publisher could do with its time. Resident Evil: Revelations (the 3DS one, not its superior successor) is the...

  • Round Up Injustice 2 PS4 Reviews Fly Super High

    Grodds among us

    A casual reminder that 2017 is still firing on all fronts: Injustice 2 is the latest game to comfortably exceed expectations. Reviews for NetherRealm’s anticipated DC Comics dust-up are just starting to emerge, and while we received our copy a little late, we figured we’d round up a variety of reviews from around the web before...

  • Video How the Feck Do You Play Farpoint with a DualShock 4?

    Not a lot changes, actually

    One of Farpoint’s biggest selling points is, of course, the PlayStation VR Aim Controller. But while the first-person shooter is available as part of a bundle featuring the plastic firearm, you can also buy it standalone both physically and digitally. So how the heck does that work? Well, the answer is that you can...

  • News Ubisoft Sequel The Crew 2 Buckles Up on PS4

    You know as much as we do

    To coincide with Ubisoft’s financial call, the French publisher has dropped the most anticlimactic announcements on its forums. Hand-in-hand with Far Cry 5 – it’s using a nice font, that one – the company has confirmed that The Crew 2 is set to release at some point before 31st March, 2018. So, there’s that...

  • Store Update 16th May 2017 (Europe)

    The Surge! Injustice 2! Farpoint!

    Corrr, it’s a big’un on the European PlayStation Store – and no, that opening salvo was not supposed to be a quote from a Carry On film. New releases this week include small, insignificant titles like… Oh, er, The Surge, Injustice 2, and Farpoint. We’re being sarcastic by the way – those are all arguably...

  • News Ubisoft Confirms Far Cry 5, Will No Doubt Show Up at E3

    But is it a Western?

    Ubisoft has confirmed the existence of Far Cry 5 and... That's about it. In an official forum post, the publisher has revealed a generic logo and asks "Are you ready for a hefty dose of new Far Cry adventures?" We've got no other details to go on right now, other than the recent rumour that it'll be set in the Wild West,...

  • News Sonic's Pals Suck So SEGA Wants You to Make Your Own

    Sonic Forces to sport complete, er, character creator

    Sonic Forces will allow you to create your own custom member of the Blue Blur’s world-saving crew. Wait, what? Seriously, the third pillar of Sonic Team’s latest will allow you to fashion your own anthropomorphic hero to fight alongside Tails, Knuckles, et al. You’ll then take your avatar...

  • Video Cut Through Over an Hour of The Surge PS4 Gameplay

    Sci-fi souls

    Our review wasn’t overly complimentary, but if The Surge is still on your wishlist, then maybe you’d like to take a look at over an hour of gameplay footage? We recently streamed a chunk of the so-called Sci-Fi Souls, and we’ve embedded all of the archived action above for your viewing pleasure.

    Review The Surge

    Bloodbored

    The Surge makes a great first impression. Its opening hour introduces you to a combat system that takes clear inspiration from the likes of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but then developer Deck 13 innovates in a number of key areas to prove it’s more than just a clone. Running alongside that, the primitive area evokes the same sense of...
