  • News This PS4 Theme Is a New Low

    It's time to stop

    Look at this monstrosity. Just look at it. Virtual tat just doesn't get any worse than this, does it?

    Review Nex Machina

    Death machine

    Nex Machina reinforces Housemarque’s status as the undisputed king of the dual-joystick shooter. This collaboration with arcade veteran Eugene Jarvis (he of Defender and Smash TV fame) is a borderline perfect spin on the genre, as you take control of a futuristic space pilot pushing back against hordes of voxel-based robots. Your...

  • News Spider-Man's Swinging Is Completely Skill-Based

    Why so slow, bruh?

    The new Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4 has been incredibly well received, winning our Game of the Show gong by a country mile.

  • UK Sales Charts Horizon Keeps ARMS at Arm's-Length

    The huntress returns

    Horizon: Zero Dawn has returned to the summit of the UK sales charts, after being reduced nationwide as part of the Days of Play promotion.

  • News Project Rap Rabbit's Kickstarter Campaign Now Looks Doomed to Fail

    Unless a millionaire appears

    Project Rap Rabbit, the cool-sounding concept for a rhythm game from the creators of PaRappa the Rapper and Gitaroo Man, launched as a Kickstarter campaign back in the middle of May. Asking for £855,000, the project always seemed in doubt - especially since it only managed to raise a fraction of that amount in its first...

  • News Destiny Dev Had 'No Idea' What the Darkness Actually Was

    No, not the band

    'The Darkness' is a very vague term that Destiny likes to throw at players on a regular basis. Essentially, it's a blanket term that covers all of the bad aliens that you're tasked with shooting - but what actually is the Darkness? Is it some kind of evil energy? Is it an almighty entity that's trying to conquer the universe?...

  • News Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto Looks a Lot More Creative than Episode Gladio

    It's got jet skis

    Wow, Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto looks... different. Incorporating third person shooting with, er, jet skis, this additional tale seems to be aiming for some gameplay variation. At the very least, it looks more interesting than Episode Gladiolus - the previous slice of downloadable content that was essentially a linear...

    Boom boom

    Housemarque be like: we need some more voxels in here, we need some more voxels in here.

Check out the video for a look at the first world and so
