    Book reveals title's turbulent tale

    Do you remember the very early days of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End? There was a mass exodus at developer Naughty Dog, with franchise director Amy Hennig being the most notable departure. Rumour had it that the sequel was in dire straits, and The Last of Us creators Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley were ushered in...

  • News Are Bayonetta and Vanquish Coming to the PS4?

    Retailer reckons so

    Well, this is an exciting, out-of-the-blue rumour: two top PlayStation 3 titles Bayonetta and Vanquish could be coming to the PlayStation 4 this November. The pair of SEGA published Platinum Games products have been listed on website Alza as part of a purported double-pack. Seeing as both games were recently ported to the...

    It’s the rumour that won’t stop running: the two Shenmue titles could be coming to the PlayStation 4 this year. Just like the Bayonetta and Vanquish double-pack we reported on earlier, a bunch of Eastern European retailers all seem to think that Yu Suzuki’s legendary Dreamcast adventures are coming to Sony’s current console...

  • News It Looks Like Okami HD Really Is Coming to PS4

    Remaster gets rated

    There was a rumour swirling around last month that Capcom is preparing to bring Okami HD to the PlayStation 4. The possibility didn't sound too far-fetched then and it seems even more probable now, as Gematsu notes that the Korean rating board has rated the remaster. When games usually get rated like this, an official...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 185

    This must be Destiny

    You're already sick of hearing about it and we're already sick of writing about it, but we can't bloody well tell our team of scribes to not play Destiny 2 this weekend. It's time for a bumper edition of What Are You Playing! Robert Ramsey, Associate Editor I've got a busy weekend planned, but when I'm not socialising,...

    Review Knack 2

    Knack strikes back

    It’s fair to say that Knack divided opinion upon its release alongside the PlayStation 4 in November 2013. Some concluded it to be an abomination that failed to live up to the promise of being a Crash Bandicoot successor, while others deemed it to be not so bad. Either way you look at it, it's now clear to see that the divisive...

    Review Madden NFL 18

    Gronk star

    Yes, the football season may have just started in the UK, but across the pond, something different is going on: the football season is about to start. Not the one with feet or balls, mind you, but one even more complicated and technical, a sport in which “PA Max Protect” actually means something. To a new player, the prospect of...

  • News Bungie Addresses the PlayStation Nation in Destiny 2 Launch Video

    That's our line

    We've been using the term "PlayStation Nation" for years purely because it sounds so terrible, but we guess the phrase may not be quite as uncool as we thought. Bungie's put out a special message to those picking up Destiny 2 on PlayStation 4, and the developer's quick to mention the PlayStation Nation. Is PlayStation Nation an...

  • Rumour Resident Evil 7's Not a Hero DLC, Post-Game Expansion Launch in December

  • News Gearbox Basically Admits Borderlands 3 Is in Full Production

    Lock and load

    Wow, who saw this one coming? At a recent PAX West panel, Gearbox CEO and industry gobsh*te Randy Pitchford told the audience that 90 per cent of the studio is currently "working on the thing I think most of you guys want us to be working on". Obviously, that's a Borderlands 3 tease -- unless the developer is so misguided that it...

  • News Action RPG Code Vein Is Worth Keeping a Bloodied Eye On in New PS4 Gameplay

    Red or dead

    IGN's gone live with around 17 minutes of Code Vein gameplay, and the game's showing promise. Described early on as "anime Dark Souls" you can certainly see where that trail of thought comes into the equation, but there's still a unique sense of style on display here. That said, we're not huge fans of the dull environment that's...

  • News The Destiny 2 Servers Are Live for Physical Copies of the Game

    Early bird

    Into the depths

    Bungie's squeezed out another short Destiny 2 video, this time detailing Lost Sectors, which are essentially hidden dungeons that you can find in patrol zones.

    Squall's foe returns

    Ultimecia is joining the playable roster of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, a new character trailer reveals.
