  • Talking Point What Free August 2017 PlayStation Plus Games Do You Want?

    When will August's PS Plus games be announced?

    Time really does fly when you’re having fun. We’ve barely got done ensuring that the awful teenage cast of Until Dawn endure the worst deaths imaginable, and already it’s time to start thinking about August 2017’s big PlayStation Plus update. We’re anticipating an announcement for the full...

    Review 99Vidas

    Favelas of rage

    The scrolling beat-'em-up is one of those beloved genres that indie devs are always trying to bring back to the fold, but they never quite succeed. Maybe it’s the inherent level of old school challenge or the left-to-right simplicity that fails to catch on. Perhaps the strongest example of this attempted resurgence in recent years...

  • News Stuff Single Player, Street Fighter V's Getting Sports Costumes

    Do the Jenneke warm-up dance

    There are no Olympics until 2020, but Capcom likes to make a quick buck. To be fair, these sports-themed Street Fighter V costumes are pretty cool. There are three to choose from: Ibuki in a track outfit and trainers; Laura in an indoor volleyball kit (of course), and; Rashid in a football kit. We do like the way the...

    Plenty of variety

    It’s the penultimate weekend in July before the August apocalypse arrives. Seriously, if you thought that you were going to have another month to clear your backlog, then think again – the next month is looking stacked. You may want to polish up any leftovers while you still have the chance. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’m on the...

    Out in August

    Injustice 2’s DLC is on a steady schedule, and arriving next is Starfire, the queen of green beams – or, er, Tamaran if you’re looking for a more canonical explanation. With fiery red hair and green eyes, Princess Koriand’r is looking good – and she also packs a punch, with some mean close-quarters combat and devastating...

Anyway, Warner Bros has debuted a new trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War which introduces Shelob from The Two Towers. Who's, like, a sexy lady now. Apparently.

    And how do you get in the Destiny 2 beta?

    Destiny 2 is shaping up to be the biggest game of the year (sorry Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars: Battlefront 2) and Bungie wants to give you an early taste of the title via its PlayStation 4 beta. But what time does the Destiny 2 beta begin? And how do you get in the Destiny 2 PS4 beta? Worry not, eager...

    Snow joke

    A number of Final Fantasy characters have tried their hand at advertising in the past. Most notably, Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning, in all of her immensely boring glory, was once brought in to help sell designer handbags. And now, equally dreadful Final Fantasy XIII hero Snow is busy shifting Nissan cars in a brand new clip. It's all a...

    Review Super Cloudbuilt

    Destination heaven

    Parkour as a mechanic has become synonymous with the first-person shooter genre as of late. The likes of Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare and the Titanfall series brought the art of wall running to the masses, but rarely does a game outside of the FPS family incorporate free running to the point where it’s the way to get about...

    Ubisoft said that it would be bringing player-versus-player modes to Ghost Recon: Wildlands ages ago, and now the publisher finally looks ready to deliver on its promise. The open world co-op stealth-shooter remains the best-selling release of 2017 thus far, so the ongoing support is hardly surprising. That...

    Review Cars 3: Driven to Win

    Rocky road

    Pixar’s Cars movies are widely regarded as some of their weaker works, but they probably have the most straightforward path to gamification. Cars 3: Driven to Win is a simple arcade racer, featuring characters and locations from the films, and it’s almost exactly what you’d expect. However, the amount of variety and fun on offer...

    A quick recommendation

    Happy Dungeons is a cutesy little free-to-play title that's coming to PlayStation 4 this September. It's an action role-playing game with loot drops, character classes, quests, co-op for up to four players, and a daft story. It's also available to download now on Sony's console as an open beta -- and we'd recommend giving...

    Destiny 2's beta enters its open phase today on PlayStation 4, in case you forgot. The beta itself is relatively small in terms of content -- unless you really like competitive multiplayer -- but it's still well worth a download if you're interested in or at least curious about Bungie's next big hit. The beta weighs in at around...
