Feature: PlayStation VR Has the Power to Elicit Real-World Reactions

PlayStation VR Has the Power to Elicit Real-World Reactions

Don't look down

There are two things that make virtual reality extra impressive: scale and physical reactions. As we've said so many times, you really need to wear the headset to understand just how affecting these assets are, but we also appreciate that it's not easy for everyone to get eyes-on time with the device. As such, we've already tried...

Hands On: Sonic Mania on PS4 Runs Rings Around Recent Entries

Sonic Mania on PS4 Runs Rings Around Recent Entries

Super Sonic

Let's face it: aside from Sonic Generations, the Blue Blur's had a pretty iffy history on PlayStation consoles. The hog's starred in a couple of decent Wii titles – and he's even enjoyed a handful of decent handheld outings – but the character's struggled to live up to his iconic legacy on the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and now...

Review: Virginia (PS4)

Virginia (PS4)

Shoulda stayed home

It always stings a little when you get your hopes up for a game and it disappoints you upon release. Sure, there are different tiers to this; for instance, it's hard to find a recent game that upset more people at launch than No Man's Sky. But often that initial letdown leads to hyperbole; there are titles that fall short of...

First Impressions: Bloodying Our Blades in the For Honor PS4 Alpha

Bloodying Our Blades in the For Honor PS4 Alpha

No guts, no glory

For Honor is a medieval melee-based action title that's set in a land totally ruined by a natural disaster - its people left to fight for their survival. This is where three warriors come across one pool of water, and although they could share it, a brawl ensues because of pure greed. These initial three fighters go on to form...

Rise of the Tomb Raider Has a Ridiculous 125 Trophies on PS4

That's a Lara gamerscore

This must be some sort of record: Rise of the Tomb Raider will release with a whopping 125 Trophies on the PlayStation 4. The trinkets span the main game alongside its many expansion packs, and consist of an eye-watering 118 bronze trinkets. The remaining seven gongs are divided up between five silver, one gold, and one...

Review: The Bunker (PS4)

The Bunker (PS4)

Solitary confinement

The FMV genre has had a bit of a renaissance lately. Her Story and Contradiction: Spot The Liar both released to a positive amount of fanfare over on the PC, and now it's time for the PlayStation 4 to get its own full motion adventure. The Bunker marks quite a change in scenery for developer Wales Interactive, a studio that's...

Review: NBA 2K17 (PS4)

NBA 2K17 (PS4)

Swish

The NBA 2K series has always been the most eye-catching of sport game franchises because of its excellent presentation and attention to detail, not to mention its stunningly realised visuals. NBA 2K17 is no different, and ups the ante to make quite possibly one of the best sporting experiences on PlayStation. Sure, it doesn't have any huge...

News: Shovel Knight Brings More Fanservice to PS4 Platformer Yooka-Laylee

Shovel Knight Brings More Fanservice to PS4 Platformer Yooka-Laylee

We're diggin' it

Yooka-Laylee exists to please old-school Nintendo gamers. Having gone hands-on with the PlayStation 4 platformer earlier this week, we can confirm that it's quite literally Banjo-Kazooie running on modern hardware – even the use of the Unity engine ensures an authentic N64-esque 20 frames-per-second throughout. But what about...

Mission Blog: Chapter 6 - Boldly Going

Chapter 6 - Boldly Going

The final frontier

The black hole was alarmingly close. It was an arresting if slightly terrifying sight, with an attractive blue aura surrounding a harshly defined circle of darkness. Though No Man's Sky's black holes offer some of the most striking (and perilously inviting) views in the game, my curiosity got the better of me just before I flew...

You know the drill: let us know what you're playing down below. Jacob Hull, Reviewer: It's a Premier League weekend, so just you try and...

First Impressions: PS4 Pro Represents a Sizeable Step Forward

PS4 Pro Represents a Sizeable Step Forward

A new Horizon

Looking at Guerrilla's eye-wateringly pretty dinosaur destroying role-playing game Horizon: Zero Dawn on the PlayStation 4 Pro initially reveals the game that you have in your imagination; it's only when the upgraded version is observed back-to-back with its standard PS4 release that the stark contrast comes into alarming focus...

Ogle Rise of the Tomb Raider's Assets on PS4 Pro

Careful now

What a difference a year makes. Just 12 months ago, Rise of the Tomb Raider was one of the tentpole titles in Microsoft's "greatest ever" Xbox lineup -- and now it's one of the posterchilds of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Maybe -- just maybe -- Square Enix played a blinder after all. Or, perhaps, this title's going to flop for the second or...

Tap Up 30 Minutes of Watch Dogs 2 Gameplay

Hacked off

It's one of the biggest games of the year, but our looks at Watch Dogs 2 have been limited to say the least. Ubisoft, ever the experts at earning column inches for their wares, has hooked up the enthusiast press with tons of new gameplay footage -- and because our invite got lost in the post, we've reproduced Eurogamer.net's coverage...

And is the Iron Price right?

A fictitious prize to whoever cites both references in that sub header! Anyway, we've got another bumper episode for you this week that comes to you with improved microphone quality on my end, for once. Huzzah! This episode, we catch up on all the latest new from the PlayStation Meeting and Tokyo Game Show. Plus, we...

Poll: What Do You Think of Destiny: Rise of Iron?

What Do You Think of Destiny: Rise of Iron?

Is it hot stuff?

Ah, trusty old Destiny - a game that's pretty much the perfect fodder for a Friday poll such as this. The shooter's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, launched earlier this week on PlayStation 4, and its brand new six-player Raid is releasing later today. Judging by the amount of buzz that the DLC has generated around the 'net, it's...

What October PlayStation Plus Games Do You Want?

Free the freebies

The price has gone up in North America, but few could be disappointed with September 2016's selection of free PlayStation Plus games. Between the excellent Journey and the agreeable Lords of the Fallen, the PlayStation 4 alone played host to two really worthwhile downloads last time out. But now it's time to starting thinking...

Iceland Isn't in FIFA 17 Because EA Didn't Offer Enough Money For the Rights

Ice cold

If you kept up with this summer's Euro tournament, you'll know that Iceland did incredibly well for a team made up of relative nobodies from a very sparsely populated country. One of the lowest ranked sides in the tournament, Iceland made it all the way to the quarterfinals - and they even knocked out England to get there. Naturally, the...
