E3 2016: Jeepers! Spider-Man PS4's Trailer Was Gameplay

Jeepers! Spider-Man PS4's Trailer Was Gameplay

Amazing

With the announcement of Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, we thought that we were looking at some kind of CG trailer. But no! Insomniac Games has confirmed that what you saw was PlayStation 4 gameplay – albeit with some scenes presumably captured from non-gameplay camera angles in order to give things a more cinematic feel. "I'm...

Let's Be Honest, E3 2016 Was Disappointing

Sammy's not feeling all that stoked

In the cold, hard light of day – with more than four hours sleep under my belt – I've come to a bold, brave conclusion: E3 2016 was a bit disappointing, wasn't it? Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the spectacle of Sony's conference and the banter that accompanied the bad ones – but it's hardly been a vintage...

Kojima Didn't Really Have to Pitch PS4's Death Stranding to Sony

"Do what you have to do," platform holder said

Hideo Kojima has hinted in an interview with French website Gameblog that he didn't really have to pitch Death Stranding to Sony – and that the level of trust between the two partners is one of the reasons that he signed with the company for his first independent project. "Working with Sony afforded...

E3 2016: Lost Planet 3 Writers Penning God of War PS4's Story

Lost Planet 3 Writers Penning God of War PS4's Story

Good news

We commented during Sony's E3 2016 press conference that the writing in God of War's spectacular PlayStation 4 revival seemed really strong, and now we know why: Rich Gaubert and Matt Sophos – the scripting double-act behind the surprisingly tenderly written Lost Planet 3 – are handling most of the story. Good news, then. While Lost...

E3 2016: Who'd Have Ever Thought NieR Would Get a Sequel That Actually Looks Good?

Who'd Have Ever Thought NieR Would Get a Sequel That Actually Looks Good?

C'mon, be honest

We'll probably get nailed to a wooden cross for this, but the perspective at Push Square Towers is that Scalebound – despite being directed by the legendary Hideki Kamiya – looks like total dross. And yes, before you start bleating in the comments, we'd say the same if it was a PlayStation 4 game. The good news is that...

Must Own PS4 Exclusive Ratchet & Clank Is £20 on the PlayStation Store

Time to go Lombax to the future

A quick break from all of the juicy E3 2016 news: Ratchet & Clank is currently £19.99 on the European PlayStation Store. We had a quick poke around and you can get a physical copy for a few pence cheaper off Amazon, but, y'know, you have to wait for them to deliver it and stuff. Plus you have to pay postage...

E3 2016: This Is the Best Final Fantasy XV Video You'll See at E3

This Is the Best Final Fantasy XV Video You'll See at E3

Eyes forward

Between cumbersome boss battles and crumby PlayStation VR spin-offs, Final Fantasy XV hasn't had a particularly great E3 2016. That's not stopping Square Enix from releasing one more trailer, though – and this one's the best yet. There's no music, and almost zero dialogue – just a car that can turn into an aeroplane. Watching...

We Came So Close to Getting an Egyptian God of War

Oh, Mummy

God of War is back, and it's looking better than we ever could have imagined. Kratos has returned, but this time he's got a new set of Gods to deal with – all from Norse legend. "We are parsing it as the time in which the Vikings spoke of their Gods walking the Earth," creative director Cory Barlog told a panel at E3 2016, as reported...
