    Blade runner

    Ah, Assassin's Creed. The success of Ubisoft's massively popular open world series is partly responsible for pushing the publisher up near the very top of the industry food chain, where it now sits alongside the likes of EA and Activision. But as is the case with any long standing franchise, Creed has had its ups and downs. Some of its...

    Review LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

    Loki alright

    With Marvel releasing films almost weekly, it feels like the superhero craze of the last decade is starting to reach critical mass. The comic-book giant’s huge catalogue of heroes and villains seems inexhaustible, yet LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 puts them all to good work, using and dispatching them with the cold-heartedness of a Disney...

    We would say it’s a big week on the European PlayStation Store this week, but big weeks have become the norm lately, so it’s just an average update really. We suppose the headline new arrival is Star Wars Battlefront II, but L.A. Noire, The Sims 4, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR are also vying for your attention...

But, if it wasn’t for that let-down of a space excursion, BJ Blazkowicz’s latest Nazi rampage would be taking that less than coveted prize. However, this...
