Dead Island: Retro Revenge May Be More Dislikeable Than Battleborn

Go away

Look, this author's probably the least funny person on the planet – but whether you're a budding comedian or not, you've got to know when to quit. Dead Island: Retro Rampage desperately doubles down on its dodgy "jokes", however, managing to wrap everything abhorrent about Internet humour into 90 seconds of ear-splittingly bad stand-up,...

The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Has Uncovered Yet Another Release Date

It's probably right, this time

How many times has The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's second expansion had its release date leaked? By our count, it's happened three times now, and it's been a different date every time.

Ratchet & Clank still best selling individual game

We're not entirely sure how, but Battleborn has managed to top the UK sales charts. There is a big "but" that simply must follow this sentence, however, as Ratchet & Clank was still the best-selling game of the week in terms of individual units. What does this mean, then? Basically, the only...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered's Infinite Warfare Exclusivity Is a Disaster

Joey Thurmond believes Activision can avoid paying a big price

Video game corporations are prone to making asinine decisions across the board. Ubisoft is no stranger to misrepresenting titles like Assassin's Creed Unity, Watch Dogs, and I Am Alive, which respectively ended up with an unforgivable amount of glitches, vastly downgraded visuals, and...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 116

Overwatch and out

A bit of inside baseball: your humble host is horrible at organising WAYP every week. Despite the feature being in its 116th instalment, you could probably count on one hand the number of times this editor has contacted his team on time in order to solicit entries for the article.

Insomniac Games Discusses the Past, Present, and Future of Ratchet & Clank

Cue montage

Insomniac Games' staff has likely been living up to its name more than usual over the past month. With the announcement of two new titles for the Oculus Rift and release of the game and film of Ratchet & Clank, the veteran developer has been burning the midnight oil to say the least. Therefore, it's no wonder that it should take some...

World War I with a twist?

Well, then – this is an unexpected shock. The first artwork from Battlefield 5 has leaked online ahead of today's reveal – and it's not entirely what you expect. It looks like the World War I rumours were probably true – we see an old-fashioned German pistol as well as a zeppelin in the background – but it appears...

We Talk Stylish PS4 Steath Title Aragami with Developer Lince Works

Shadow touched

A stealth-'em-up with an attractive art style, Aragami was announced last month for PlayStation 4, and is due to launch later this year. Catching our eye with its debut gameplay trailer - which you can watch through here - we reckon that Barcelona based studio Lince Works could well be onto something. It's fortunate, then, that...

Crash Bandicoot's Dr. Neo Cortex Actor Asked to Resurrect Old Character

Hmm

There's been no shortage of Crash Bandicoot craziness over the past couple of years, but we get the distinct impression that things are about to heat up on Wumpa Island. According to a NeoGAF post, Lex Lang – who voiced Dr. Neo Cortex in the more recent Crash titles – has been asked to "resurrect" a "doctor" from a game gone by. We can't...
