19th April 2016 (Europe)

The whopper

It's an absolutely mind bogglingly big European PlayStation Store update this week – especially if you own a PlayStation 4. We count 21 new titles on Sony's new-gen system, but there are various permutations of the same game padding out the number. The highlight for Europeans should be the belated arrival of Ratchet & Clank, but...

Bloody hell, it's all kicking off today isn't it?

PS4 Action RPG The Technomancer Crackles with 6 Minutes of Gameplay

Zapped

We've had our eye on The Technomancer for some time, and the more that we see of it, the more that we hope developer Spiders has crafted an action role-playing game that's worth being hyped about. The studio's previous outing, Bound by Flame, had some interesting ideas, and overall, it wasn't too bad - but it felt undercooked in numerous...

Let's Hope Mafia III Ends Up Being as Good as This Fantastic Release Date Trailer

The day it all goes down

Mafia III's on a mission to bring down the mob later this year on PlayStation 4, and to celebrate this no doubt brutal and bloody fact, the open world title's got a brand new gameplay trailer.

PS4K Is Codenamed Neo, Has Upgraded Specs, Will Not Supplant Existing PS4 Systems

Devs requested to support both consoles starting this October

Sony probably won't be happy today, as the PlayStation 4K has leaked in full – assuming that Giant Bomb's sources are correct. We've already heard a lot about the Japanese giant's hypothetical hardware half-step, but it seems that documentation regarding the device is now in the hands...

Street Fighter V Gets a Lot of Hate, But It Succeeds Superbly as a Tournament Game

Ramsey reckons Capcom's latest is a joy to watch

I stayed up until 07:00AM this morning watching the last eight of a Street Fighter V tournament. When I told editor Sammy Barker about my shenanigans, he looked at me like I was a complete lunatic – but I don't regret it one bit, because Capcom's vision for the brawler has finally clicked with...

Capcom Dishes Out Details on Guile and a Brand New Stage in Street Fighter V

Boom boom shake the room

Ah, that's a bit better, Capcom. Following an earlier leak, the Japanese publisher's gone ahead and confirmed that Guile will be April's new Street Fighter V combatant. The muscular military man will return with all of his well-known techniques intact, along with his really-dumb-but-somehow-still-cool iconic hairdo. As...

Crustacean nation

It's been a big few days for Insomniac Games, hasn't it? Not content with the overwhelmingly positive reception that Ratchet & Clank's received, the Burbank-based developer has announced about a bajillion new games – most of them being developed exclusively for the Oculus Rift.

Dark Souls III 1.04 Patch Makes Some Adjustments

Praise the sun

How did you get on with Dark Souls III this weekend, readers? We prayed to the Orphan of Kos for help besting the Abyss Watchers, and he responded in kind. We're kinda worried we're going to be whisked away by a giant slug to a Cthulhu-esque nightmare realm in return, however. It was probably worth it – we got a Silver Trophy for...
