  • News PlayStation VR Gun-'Em-Up StarBlood Arena Scores PS4 Demo

    Play the game

    We criticised StarBlood Arena for focusing on online multiplayer given PlayStation VR’s smaller install base, but to be fair to the hero-based affair it has managed to attract a very small but very dedicated audience.

    Developed by Dimps

    Bandai Namco has released a teaser trailer for something called Projekt #1514. It looks like the game could be set in some sort of post-apocalyptic world, but aside from that, we don't really have anything to go on. Whatever it is, it's being developed by Dimps, a Japanese studio that's mostly know for working on a range...

    But why?

    Agents of Mayhem is now just days - or hours, depending on your region - away from release on PlayStation 4, and Deep Silver's wheeled out the inevitable launch trailer to remind you of that fact. Said trailer also reminds us that this "isn't Saints Row", which is something that still has us scratching our heads. Anyway, it's easy to take...

  • News Sonic Mania Doesn't Have a Platinum Trophy for Some Reason

    Plenty of Chaos Emeralds, though

    No one’s going to skip the stellar-looking Sonic Mania over its weak roster of trinkets, but just a heads up: the game doesn’t have a Platinum Trophy. The inconsistency of Sony’s achievements system has reared its ugly mug again, with the full-length 16-bit throwback netting just 18 Trophies – and primarily...
