    Vinyl fantasy

    Any franchise with a modicum of mainstream success is guaranteed its own line of bulbous Funko figurines, and Horizon: Zero Dawn is the latest property to get the Pop! vinyl treatment.

  • News Sony's Cancelled PS4 Exclusive About Garden Gnomes Sounded Great

    Oh gnome

    Remember when Sony trademarked Gnomageddon? In addition to groans at the godawful pun, the registration piqued interest: what was the game and who was making it? Well, a pretty in-depth expose from Did You Know Gaming has revealed that the title was in production at Sony San Diego alongside free-to-play MOBA title Kill Strain. We use the...

  • News Huge No Man's Sky PS4 Patch 1.3 Does Add Multiplayer, Kind Of

    Technically, at least

    Hello Games has released the patch notes for No Man's Sky update 1.3, and they include a couple of surprises. As previously reported, the patch adds new story content and portals which allow you fast travel between locations. On top of all that, though, 1.3 actually adds a form of multiplayer. Kind of. The developer...

  • Soapbox Why Is Sound So Underappreciated in Games?

    Sammy wants you to open your ears

    It’s always about the graphics, isn’t it? Video games are, by their very nature, a visual medium – and we tend to judge technical progress by the number of polygons or pixels being displayed on screen. We analyse in deep detail the lighting, the resolution – heck, the rise of Digital Foundry means that even...

    Review Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

    A bit of new, a bit of bold

    When we reviewed the original Mega Man Legacy Collection, we gave the game a favourable score, mentioning that it was an affordable compilation of classic ports that would fill your time ahead of the then-anticipated Mighty No. 9. A lot has changed since then. It’s no secret that Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor...

  • Poll 1 Year Later, What Are Your Thoughts on No Man's Sky?

    Sky's the limit

    No Man's Sky first launched one year ago yesterday. Or the day before, depending on your region. After years of hype, the sci-fi exploration title was met with a rather lukewarm reception. Reviews were mixed, as was player opinion, but the game did secure a hardcore following. For a while, developer Hello Games went dark, but it...

    When this author was a nipper he used to regularly boot up Sonic CD (the European version!) in order to watch its ridiculous intro movie. If you try, you can do anythinnng!

    High five?

    Well well well, what do we have here? Eurogamer have got their hands on the release notes for the upcoming PlayStation 4 firmware 5.0, which reveal the various software enhancements that Sony is set to implement. To be brutally honest, though, we're not looking at anything too exciting this time around. For starters, 5.0 will allow you...

  • News Tales from the Borderlands Didn't Sell Well at All

    One of Telltale's best developed with skeleton crew

    Some top Telltale staffers have cast some light on Tales from the Borderlands – and it’s raised some questions about the culture at the company. Many of you may remember that it took ages for episodes in the critically acclaimed series to deploy, and that’s because after less-than-stellar...

    Review Batman: The Enemy Within - Episode One: The Enigma

    Riddle me this

    Telltale’s take on Batman lore ended with a bang a little less than a year ago, and The Enemy Within picks up the baton from its predecessor without pumping the brakes. Episode 1: The Enigma once again puts an emphasis on Bruce Wayne, as the Riddler returns to Gotham with his trademark brand of brain-teasing supervillainry in tow...

  • Store Update 8th August 2017 (Europe)

    Hellblade! Lawbreakers! Batman! The kitchen sink!

We suppose the highlight this time is Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, but there’s also Lawbreakers, Batman: The Enemy Within, and so much more to pay to attention to. PS4 Games: Hellblade: Senua’s...
