Oh No, There's a Resident Evil Television Show in the Works

Bet it'll be dead bad

For many, Resident Evil has already been butchered beyond recognition. Ignore the mixed quality of Capcom’s recent outings, and you’re still left with the weird Milla Jovovich movies and terrible CG flicks. What could possibly be worse than all of the above, though? Well, a television show based upon the survival horror...

Odds and ends

The week before a major gaming convention always feels like the calm before the storm, and the past seven days have lived up to that cliché.

Panic presentations

Every convention comes with a combination of excitement and trepidation.

The Last Tinker: City of Colors Plots a Platforming Comeback on PS4

All things bright and beautiful

It’s true that the PlayStation 4 may not have an especially enormous software lineup right now, but it does have a varied one. However, it's lacking role-playing games and platformers – but Loot Entertainment is hoping to plug the latter gap with The Last Tinker: City of Colors. Announced earlier this week on...

Conjuring up improv

We wouldn't blink for a second if you told us that The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is a spellbinding testament to the PlayStation 4's power. CD Projekt RED is pulling out all of the stops in crafting one of the most realised, eye-popping open world titles since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. However, something's bound to go wrong with...

Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed Bares All on PS4 in Europe Next Year

Leaving us hanging

It's safe to say that Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed has caught our attention with its reckless stripping and bizarre plot involving sun shy vampires. While coming to the PlayStation 3 and Vita this August in North America and October in Europe, those of you in the US will need to wait until later this year to sample this...

PS4 Interface Images Show Folders, Improved Trophy Notifications, and More

Sadly, they're probably fake

There’s nothing like a good ol’ fashioned leak to shake you out of a groggy Sunday morning. In truth, this looks fake, so don’t expect it to be officially unveiled at Gamescom 2014 next week – but we kind of wished that it would be. The shots show an enhanced PlayStation 4 user interface, including folders,...

Can't Find a Multiplayer Match in The Last of Us on PS4? This Patch Should Help

Netcode remastered

Naughty Dog may have plotted an almost flawless transition to the PlayStation 4, but it did mess up one aspect of The Last of Us in converting it to Sony’s next-gen console. Since launch, there have been many complaints regarding the title’s multiplayer matchmaking, which functions, but, well, not as well as it should. In...

Music Management Sim BigFest Will Also Headline on PS4

Next-gen encore
