    Review Beast Quest

    A peasantry affair

    With over 11 years' worth of material to draw inspiration from, a video game adaptation of the Beast Quest franchise arrives with a somewhat decent amount of potential. Telling tales of mythical creatures and the heroes that slay them, does the series’ first attempt on consoles go down in the history books with a lasting legacy...

  • Rumour Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Spotted Online

    Gun-ho

    Activision may be prepping a PlayStation 4 remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. A listing for the game has been spotted on Amazon Italy, and as we all know, online retailer listings can sometimes point towards an imminent announcement. Interestingly enough, the page has the game down for release on the 30th April, but seeing as...

    Review Devil May Cry HD Collection

    Devil Never Cry

    Devil May Cry is a franchise that revolutionised hack-and-slash gaming back when it first released in October 2001 for the PlayStation 2. Since then, the series has seen several sequels that varied in quality, but ultimately still provided some of the most exciting and engaging gameplay to date. Naturally, Capcom had decided to...

  • Soapbox Sony Has Become Far Too Quiet

    Enjoy the silence?

    Actions speak louder than words, but I still can’t help feeling that Sony’s become far too quiet over the past few years. At the start of the PlayStation 4 era, this was a company that was firing on all cylinders when it came to community outreach; Worldwide Studios executive Shuhei Yoshida was one of the biggest names on...

  • Rumour Could Cyberpunk 2077 be a PS4 and PS5 Game?

    The future is now

    CD Projekt Red has recently spoken at the Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar 2018, and one specific comment has caught the attention of Cyberpunk 2077 fans. On one of the slides during the developer's presentation, it states that the elusive game will be built on "current and next generation technology". Now, you'll need to take...

    Review Tesla vs Lovecraft

    Electricity and madness

    With a name like Tesla vs Lovecraft, you're expecting a certain tone. This is not a serious shooter; right from the outset it aims for ‘insane’ and works from there. Appropriate given the game's antagonist. The title screen blasts out a chaotic theme tune, depicting a monster-riding H.P. Lovecraft facing off against...

  • News SoulCalibur VI's Box Art Is Pretty Darn Sick

    Like, sick as in cool

    Damn, that's some badass box art. Spotted by the omnipresent Wario64 on Twitter, Amazon's posted up the box art for SoulCalibur VI. Interestingly, it goes for artwork that includes both series veteran Mitsurugi and newly revealed guest character Geralt of Rivia. Yes, that's the grizzled bloke from The Witcher -- you can see his

  • Poll What Are Your Thoughts on EA These Days?

    Still the big bad guys?

    Electronic Arts. EA. One of the biggest video game publishers in the world and also, it's fair to say, one of the most controversial. Over the last decade or so, EA has made a lot of headlines -- not all of them positive. This console generation in particular has seen the company come under fire numerous times because of the...

  • News John McEnroe, Andre Agassi Join Tennis World Tour

    You cannot be serious!

    Tennis World Tour will score a premium Legends Edition upon release on 22nd May, which will include two additional superstars: Andre Agassi (with his 1995 outfit) and John McEnroe (with his 1990 outfit). In the latter’s case, we’re assuming that means a big fat bandana, which may have just pushed us towards the pre-order...

  • News Sonic Mania Plus Adds Two New Characters This Summer

    Retail release finally confirmed

    Sonic Mania Plus will spin into brick and mortar stores this summer, SEGA announced during an SXSW panel this evening. The updated version – which will be available as a DLC pack for those who already own the title digitally – will add two new characters to the throwback sidescroller: Mighty the Armadillo and Ray...

  • News Star Wars Battlefront 2 Revamps Entire Progression System Amid Controversy

    Microtransactions coming back for costumes

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is being ripped up and reassembled following an enormous backlash at the backend of last year. Set to roll out on 21st March, developer DICE has been busy revamping pretty much everything to do with the release’s progression, presumably as part of a last-ditch effort to win back...

  • News SEGA Teases New Sonic Racing Release

    Gotta go fast

    As has been rumoured for a while, there’s a new Sonic Racing game in development. Speculation suggests that Sumo Digital – the developer of the excellent Sonic & Racing All-Stars Transformed – is at the helm, although this is unlikely to lean on the SEGA nostalgia that previous instalments did. A new trailer shows off a bunch...

  • News RICO Brings XIII's Art Style and Co-Op Action to PS4

    Releasing by the end of the year

    The likes of Killer7 and XIII are fondly remembered for their eye-catching art style, and it's something that RICO is clearly paying homage to as it's announced for PlayStation 4, with a release planned for later this year. The experience is a co-operative one, as it sees you and a buddy paired up as police officers...

  • News Trailblazers Tasks You with Painting Your Own Racing Line

    Put a Supergonk on it

    We’re rather taken with Trailblazers, the co-operative racing title that fuses WipEout with Splatoon. For those who missed the announcement, the game essentially sees one racer painting a line, so your partner can boost through it. And if that makes about as much sense as Marouane Fellaini in midfield, there’s a new trailer
