    A bad crop

    When we received the code for Maize, a comedic first-person adventure game about sentient corn, we were obviously intrigued. How could we not be?

    Review Planet of the Eyes

    A road less travelled

    Buried beneath the mishmash of platformers new and old comes the emergence of Planet of the Eyes – a funky puzzle platformer originally released for PC and Mac back in 2015. Though not much has changed throughout its transition to the PlayStation 4, it does feel like a welcome one. Guided by the wisdom of one man’s...

    Focusing on PC launch

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 has just hit PC, but according to a quick interview with Eurogamer, developer Larian Studios isn't quite ready to talk about the PlayStation 4 version just yet. The sequel to Divinity: Original Sin -- which launched as an Enhanced Edition on PS4 in 2015 -- has sold almost 500,000 copies on PC in...

    When and where to watch Sony's Japanese briefing

    Of all the annual PlayStation press conferences, the Tokyo Game Show probably ranks the lowest of the lot in terms of interest. And that’s a shame because, if you’ve worked through the dodgy translations in the past, you’ll know that previous shows have played host to reveals like Gravity Rush 2...

    Review PES 2018: Pro Evolution Soccer

    YES

    The fact that the box of PES 2018 has a Barcelona shirt-touting Neymar emblazoned on the front may seem like a bad omen for a series that, in the past few years, has often had trouble staying up-to-date. Pretty much every PES game on PS4 has had a troubled launch, taking months to update lineups to reflect the summer transfer window - but this...
