    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...

  • News New Everybody's Golf Trailer Outlines Absolutely Everything

    Par for the course

    Over in Japan, they love making these uber-long trailers that outline absolutely everything you can expect to find in an upcoming game. We don’t have the attention span to make the super-length clips work in the Western world, but this Everybody’s Golf video is pretty easy to follow – despite its narration belonging to a...

    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! Anyway, as you’d expect, Sonic Mania has a similar animated intro movie, and after it leaked on the Internet overnight, SEGA decided to upload it in full...

  • News Dishonored: Death of the Outsider Kills Some Strangers in Gameplay Trailer

    One and Dunwall

    We reckon it’s probably fair to say that Dishonored: Death of the Outsider was one of those E3 2017 announcements that very quickly got overshadowed by bigger games. Fans of Dishonored 2 should be looking forward to this standalone story, though, as it looks to add a slew of flashy new combat options to an already impressive suite...

    Review LawBreakers

    Zero-G chill

    Arena shooters aren’t all that common on consoles. Sure, we’ve had general examples like Unreal Tournament, Team Fortress 2, and DOOM land on PlayStation platforms, but these titles are best experienced and sometimes exclusively made for PC. LawBreakers was going to be no exception with its focus on insanely fast speed and chaotic...

Ugly controllers seem to be all the rage over at Sony headquarters, though, as the company's pumping out another dreadful looking pad in Europe.

As we’ve seen with the likes of Overwatch, continued development is usually funded through the sale of loot boxes or other trinkets, but series creator Kazunori Yamauchi says there won’t be any...

The game – which, we’ll stress, is in no real need of extra marketing – is selling out faster than your favourite indie band after landing a Top 40 hit...
