The end...

  • News Shenmue I & II Searching for Sailors on PS4 in 2018

    The day the snow turned to rain

    Wow, we never thought we’d see the day. SEGA has followed up on its promise of a “huge surprise” by announcing that Shenmue I & II will be coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. Considering we’d written off the possibility of this ever happening, that’s a pretty gigantic surprise indeed. This...

  • News SEGA Falls in Love with Sakura Wars Again

    It's been a decade, my love

    Deep cut Sakura Wars is to make a comeback, as SEGA is working on a new entry in the series.

    Review Infernium

    Hello sweet death

    We weren’t sure quite what to make of Infernium at first – it’s a non-linear first person survival horror that throws you into hell with minimal preparation. This is a vision of hell more about bleak, eerie landscapes and impressive vistas rather than your traditional fire 'n' brimstone DOOM-esque virtual world. The game...

    The song of life

  • Poll Will You Be Buying God of War?

    The big one

    Well, there was really only one big talking point from this week that we could have transformed into a Friday poll: God of War. Reviews for the PlayStation 4 exclusive dropped yesterday morning, and Kratos is currently sitting pretty (don't tell him we called him that) with a 94 on Metacritic. It's safe to say that critics like it. As...

  • Soapbox You Should Play God of War III While You Wait for Kratos' Return

    Greek tragedy

    The new God of War is an extraordinary game and it represents a seismic shift for one of Sony’s most beloved first-party franchises, but with more than a week to go until the title tosses its axe at retailers around the world, you should fill the time with one of Kratos’ previous adventures. God of War III was quietly remastered...

  • News SEGA Teases a 'Huge' Announcement for Tomorrow

    Okay, we'll bite

    SEGA Europe's official Twitter account has teased that a "huge announcement" is happening at the company's SEGA FES event in Tokyo tomorrow (that's the early hours of the morning for us here in Europe). Included is a picture of the show's logo, which features Sonic the Hedgehog, but there's no way of knowing whether the announcement...

  • News If You Need Something to Play This Weekend, Ghost Recon: Wildlands Is Free on PS4

    Tango yankee

    Look, we've all been there. A big game's on the horizon (God of War) and you're a bit scared of starting something new before launch in case you don't get it finished in time. Perfectly natural. So you're just looking for something that's not too involved. Maybe you can grind away the hours on Monster Hunter: World? Not a bad idea. Or...

  • News Get Hyped with the God of War PS4 Soundtrack, Now on Spotify

    Very Norse

    We reckon God of War is pretty bloody good, so we're going to take a minute to plug the game's soundtrack, which is available now on music streaming service Spotify. Could be a good way to increase your hype levels if they're not already through the roof and sailing into orbit. Comprising of 21 songs, the album clocks in at over an hour,...

  • News Here's a Glimpse at Fresh Code Vein Gameplay

    Tasty

    Code Vein still doesn't have a confirmed release date, and now that the later months of the year are starting to look pretty darn busy, we're beginning to wonder if the action role-playing title will actually make it out in 2018 to begin with. Speculation aside, at least the game's still looking promising. Bandai Namco's put out a short...

  • News Co-Op Adventure A Way Out Has Already Sold Over 1 Million Copies

    Breakout hit

    Wow, A Way Out has done rather well for itself, it seems. The co-op adventure title launched just over a couple of weeks ago on the 26 March, but it's already managed to sell through over one million copies. We thought it'd be quite popular, but we didn't think we'd see that kind of figure so quickly. Impressive stuff. Developer...

Alongside the third instalment, 505 Games will be publishing a physical collection of all three games on Sony's console, dubbed The...

  • News THQ Nordic Is Skipping E3 2018 for the World Cup

    Who can blame them?

    E3 2018 and the FIFA World Cup take place in very close proximity to each other this year, and because of that, the Austrian-based company THQ Nordic are snubbing the Los Angeles show floor for the beer gardens of Vienna this time around as they watch the World Cup in Russia from a safe distance.  Because of that, we'll get...
