Watch Dogs 2 (PS4)

Watch Dogs 2 (PS4)

Bark or bite?

This is what you wanted, people – this is what you voted for. No, not Trump or Brexit, but a city run by the Blume Corporation where absolutely everyone is constantly under the gaze of an advanced Big Brother surveillance system. This near future society is a Black Mirror-esque teched-up metropolis where ctOS2.0 connects everyone...

How We Soar (PS4)

How We Soar (PS4)

High in the sky

How We Soar is a wonderfully well-crafted virtual reality game that follows the journey of an author, through his struggles of trying to write his first novel. Although he has many ideas, he cannot decide on one over another, and so all of them are compiled together to form the environments of each level in the game. Although the...

Yesterday Origins (PS4)

Yesterday Origins (PS4)

Yesterday came suddenly

You might not know it in the modern era of gaming, but you can have an extensive and detailed narrative told on a much smaller scale than the open world blockbusters we've become accustomed to. It wasn't really that long ago that games such as the Monkey Island series or the Broken Sword games were the highlight of narrative...

Steins;Gate 0 (PS4)

Steins;Gate 0 (PS4)

Do you underSTEIN?

Imagine if we managed to create a working time machine? How long before the future, past, and present were altered irrevocably – and would it be fun and games or trauma and death? Steins;Gate was a massively acclaimed visual novel developed by 5pb. and Nitroplus back in 2009 telling of humanity's first time-travelling...

Amnesia: Collection (PS4)

Amnesia: Collection (PS4)

In the mouth of madness

Usually when people strike up a conversation about the best horror games ever made, you're going to hear someone bring up Frictional Games' Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Released on PC in 2010 as the follow-up to Frictional's previous horror series, Penumbra, The Dark Descent, has now arrived on Sony's console. Paired with its...

Killing Floor 2 (PS4)

Killing Floor 2 (PS4)

Let the bodies hit the floor

It's been a demanding shooter season so far. DICE hit rewind on history and gave us the uniformly proficient Battlefield 1 then Respawn followed with a superior sequel in Titanfall 2. As if that wasn't enough, Activision hit us with the one-two punch of a new Call of Duty and a revamp of arguably the best title in the...

Dishonored 2 (PS4)

Dishonored 2 (PS4)

Knife to see you again

Stealth. Games that do it really well don't come along all that often, with most choosing merely to dabble their toes in the murky waters where a knife in the dark is king. When looking back over those titles that made sticking to the shadows most satisfying, there was one thing that they all had in common: options. Whether...

Super Dungeon Bros (PS4)

Super Dungeon Bros (PS4)

Bros before foes

Super Dungeon Bros certainly has personality, we'll give it that. The title is shouted at you above a heavy soundtrack, the game tells you to 'Press X to rock', and you feel like you know how things are going to go from there. When you start the quest, an opening cut-scene begins, introducing the bros (all named after rock stars, of...

Windlands (PS4)

Windlands (PS4)

Swing king

The ability to amplify the emotional and physical reactions you have while playing a video game lies at the heart of what makes virtual reality so promising. In Windlands, a newly released first-person platformer, you'll be throwing yourself into the void as you grapple around a ruined civilisation high up in the sky, and it's safe to say...

Just Dance 2017 (PS4)

Just Dance 2017 (PS4)

Numa Numa nay

Just Dance: the worst part of every E3. Just Dance sometimes feels like the Ubisoft series no one can takes seriously – or even cares about anymore. This year's edition really doesn't add much in terms of gameplay or modes, but it's still solid. Firstly, the tracklist: there's a lot of variation this year, with modern hits like...

Hitman: Episode 6 - Hokkaido (PS4)

Hitman: Episode 6 - Hokkaido (PS4)

Peak

So, it's all over: seven months in the making, Hitman is finally finished and all episodes are released. From the heights of stunning Sapienza to the lows of crummy Colorado, it's certainly been a journey – but does Hokkaido end up being a fitting swansong to an excellent game or a bad note to end on? We say, wholeheartedly, the former...

Titanfall 2 (PS4)

Titanfall 2 (PS4)

Mech heaven

Sometimes a game will come along and blow away any expectations you held for it. DOOM is a prime example from earlier in the year, with a sublime single player campaign and a decent multiplayer offering to boot. Now, Titanfall 2 is another game that can be added to our list of best surprises. We assumed that the title would be good but...
