You Can Heat Things Up with One Piece: Burning Blood's PS4 Demo Right Now

Take the brawler for an early spin

If playing way too many games has taught us anything, it's that licensed anime fighters can be very hit and miss. For every good Dragon Ball brawler, there are about three relatively rubbish tie-ins, so naturally, we're always trying to keep our hype at reasonable levels when it comes to titles like One Piece:...

It's everywhere

Dreaming up interesting hardware peripherals has been a challenge for decades now. Some, like the Xbox Kinect, are cool but bungled in execution; others, like the Wii remote, are gimmicky but capture an audience anyway.

After two massively successful releases, indie studio Supergiant Games has made quite the name for itself in the industry.
