    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 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...

    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...

    Review God of War

    God tier

    God of War: Ascension may have been entertaining, but it showed that Kratos had lost the Midas touch.
