    Has it really come to this?

    Jak X: Combat Racing has released on the PlayStation 4 as a PS2 Classic and it’s made us realise just how rubbish Sony’s new-gen console is for good ol’ arcade racers. They exist, of course: Trackmania Turbo’s fine; DriveClub’s decent (although it’s more simcade than, say, SEGA Rally). But where are the...

    Bossing it

    Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption looks a lot like a more cartoony Dark Souls, but as it turns out, it's actually a boss rush-style game. "Face off against horrific enemies representing the seven deadly sins to atone for Adam's crimes. In order to challenge each boss, he must sacrifice part of himself, taking on debuffs that linger...

    If you're ready Cormac get it

    Assassin’s Creed Rogue, the PlayStation 3 stealth spin-off that launched long after the PlayStation 4, always seemed like a lock for the remaster treatment in 2015 – but over two years later we weren’t expecting it at all. Now, after a bunch of Italian retailers leaked it, the title has been rated f

    After being awarded a 10/10 from Gamespot and amassing a 93 average rating on Metacritic, it's probably fair to say that Divinity: Original Sin II is a pretty decent game, right? Following the title's full PC release in September of this year, we've been yearning to play this supposed RPG masterpiece, and if an upcoming...

    It seems Bandai Namco has finally lifted the lid on its latest One Piece project. According to the latest issue of Japanese magazine Weekly Jump, One Piece: World Seeker is a "dramatic, free-field, and action" title for PlayStation 4.  Yes, we've only got that tiny description to go on, but it sounds like...

    Comics aren’t your host’s favourite form of media, but it’d take a cold heart not to warm to this Bloodborne strip. It’s part of a new Titan series named The Death of Sleep, which is being helmed by franchise fans Ales Kot and Piotr Kowalski. They’re probably big names in the comic book world – we wouldn’t know.

    Another anti-gravity racer has appeared on the starting line. Indie dev Cybernetic Walrus (we swear these names get weirder every week) is working on a title named Antigraviator, which basically looks like WipEout with adaptable ships. Apparently, it aims to be the fastest racer on the market. Someone hook up some speed cameras!...

    We've got another quiet Japanese sales charts report on our hands here, but at least Sony's current-gen console is still doing reasonably well for itself. PlayStation 4 sales actually increased, with the base model jumping to around 25,000 units, while the Pro crept up to 8000 units. This was despite a lack of new software. Speaking...
