    Review Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - Banned Footage Vol. 2

    Cards against humanity

    Oh, Capcom – why, oh why did you cut Resident Evil 7: Biohazard - Banned Footage Vol. 2 from the main game? Banned Footage Vol. 1 served up a couple of quality VHS tapes, and its successor – launching less than a month after the core campaign – is arguably better. The DLC is cementing the survival horror as a modern...

    Psychonauts! Ys Origins! More!

    With both Horizon: Zero Dawn and NieR: Automata still a little way away, this week's European PlayStation Store update is without any real heavy hitters. That said, there are still a lot of smaller titles to choose from, and it's a particularly strong restock for PlayStation VR. Pyschonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is...

    Review VR Ping Pong

    Bounce

    We suppose it is a bit silly getting excited over a virtual reality ping pong simulation when most recreational centres have real tables of their own. Nevertheless, this author has always enjoyed a spot of video game table tennis, with Sports Champions (sorry, Rockstar) being the best adaptation thus far. But does PlayStation VR title VR Ping...

    A crafty plus size treat

    Just as Nintendo look to Switch up the handheld market, Sony give gamers a reason to dig out the trusty old PlayStation Vita in the shape of another fun and accessible Japanese role-playing game. Atelier Shallie Plus: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea is an enhanced port of the PlayStation 3 game packing all the downloadable...

    Hacking and slashing, skewering and stabbing - NieR: Automata protagonist 2B certainly knows her way around a few different weapons, doesn't she? On display in the title's newest gameplay trailer, combat in the upcoming action role-playing release still looks stupidly slick as we get our best look yet at the android's impressive...

    Review Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Bloody Nora

    Horizon: Zero Dawn is both unusual and excellent. Killzone maker Guerrilla Games' first stab at the ever-popular open world genre lifts ideas from a long list of contemporary classics, but it drops them into a post-apocalyptic plot that very much has its own flavour. The title's marriage of science fiction to tribal politics is unlike...

    Remember A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV? Announced before Final Fantasy XV released, the 2D sidescrolling beat-'em-up was available as a GameStop pre-order bonus, but once the main title launched, we admittedly heard very little about the additional adventure. Fortunately, if you've been interested in trying A King's Tale for...

    PlayStation VR horror Here They Lie had plenty of interesting ideas, so it's nice to see developer Tangentlemen stick with it.

    Horizon: Zero Dawn, then – what a brilliant debut! We have a joke at the office about releases being 'Sammy Games™', which usually means they're a bit girly and have a strange vibe. Going into it, this author didn't expect Guerrilla's latest and greatest to be one of those, but it absolutely is. It pulls together ideas from...

    Jammin'?

    We're not entirely sure who's responsible for Windjammers' sudden surge in popularity, but we're thankful for it all the same. The Frisbee-based NeoGeo cult classic – which itself is set to get a PlayStation 4 port later this year – has inspired a string of copycats, with Disc Jam being the first to reach open beta on Sony's new-gen...

    Review For Honor

    'Tis but a scratch

    The back and forth of a mano-a-mano sword fight rarely gets encapsulated effectively in video game form, and even the likes of Nioh or Dark Souls – with their more methodical combat – still feel like they fall on the action side of the coin. In the past, if you were looking for some more deliberate sword fighting then you'd...

Upcoming hack and slasher Musou Stars - which is essentially a crossover Warriors title featuring a bunch of characters from various Koei Tecmo properties - has...
