Watch the Sony PlayStation Gamescom 2014 Press Conference Right Here

Find out what's next for PS4 and Vita today

The firework show at Gamescom 2014 has started a little earlier this year, with Microsoft announcing some form of exclusivity for Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Reaction: Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Reading between the lines

Kudos to Microsoft, it actually dropped a press conference megaton. While we’d argue that Jack Tretton’s corporate beatdown at E3 2013 was a memorable media briefing moment, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise – in fact, those are becoming rarer as the major industry players all merge into a similar entity. The fact...

Get a Grip on The Witcher 3's Setting with This Intriguing Developer Diary

Mature fantasy

When someone mentions fantasy, many of us tend to think of elves, dwarves, orcs, and trinkets of immense power. And while there's nothing wrong with that outlook, people often forget about the darker, grittier side of the genre — settings that are soaked in blood, bathed in war, and are full of grotesque creatures pulled straight...

Wait, Rise of the Tomb Raider Isn't Coming to PS4?

Them's the breaks

We were promised surprises at this year's Gamescom conference, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. That's right, it seems that the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider won't be making its way to the PlayStation 4 after all. During Microsoft's media briefing today it was announced that Lara Croft's latest hellish holiday...

Former Famitsu boss teases big TGS reveal

It’s probably a bit cruel to be talking about the next major gaming convention before the current one has even got underway, but it seems like Sony may be stockpiling a seriously big announcement for the Tokyo Game Show in late September. According to Hirokazu Hamamura, the ex-editor-in-chief of Famitsu...

You Can Pop by Clementine's House in The Last of Us Remastered

Who could live in a house like this?

We all know that Easter eggs aren't just designed to make us feel sick, but also to keep us entertained all year round by popping up in video games when we least expect them. It seems that developer Naughty Dog did more than just brush up on the graphics in The Last of Us Remastered, too, as one Twitter user...

Five Ways Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Multiplayer Will Pull the Property into the Future

Power changes everything

You could never describe Call of Duty: Ghosts as a bad game. It was predictable without a doubt, but it was an entertaining enough distraction for a few weeks. Of course, Activision sets its standards higher than that, and it wouldn’t be in control of the biggest first-person property on the planet if it didn’t. Call...

PS4 Sequel Dead Island 2 Enjoys Some Sunshine Slaughter

Hot as Hell

The original Dead Island seemed to get its head turned by that iconic debut trailer. While it was ostensibly a silly co-operative zombie slayer, said first footage gave gamers expectations that the final product could never live up to. Fortunately, the folks over at German developer Yager appear to be setting out their stall much more...

"I smell a mystery and some gunpowder"

While we may be seeing a wide variety of episodic story driven titles on PlayStation at the moment – from the critically acclaimed The Walking Dead to the upcoming Tales from the Borderlands – all of them are developed by Telltale Games.

The Last of Us' Movie Adaptation Will Change Things Up, Says Neil Druckmann

Expect the unexpected

Apparently, when it comes to news about video game adaptations, it never rains but it pours. Soon after we learned about the ill-conceived Resident Evil TV show, Naughty Dog has released more info regarding The Last of Us' silver screen conversion. Specifically, the original game's writer Neil Druckmann has stated that

Oh No, There's a Resident Evil Television Show in the Works

Bet it'll be dead bad

For many, Resident Evil has already been butchered beyond recognition. Ignore the mixed quality of Capcom’s recent outings, and you’re still left with the weird Milla Jovovich movies and terrible CG flicks. What could possibly be worse than all of the above, though? Well, a television show based upon the survival horror...
