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...

Prominence Poker (PS4)

Ante-hero

There was a point ten years ago when it felt like the popularity of poker had reached fever pitch.

Assetto Corsa (PS4)

Ass-etto Corsa

With Project CARS already in the wild and Gran Turismo Sport on the way later this year, as well as other realistic and excellent racers of their own kind in DiRT Rally and F1 2016 already out, there's plenty of variation and choice in the racing simulator market on the PlayStation 4 right now.

Review: Adr1ft (PS4)

Adr1ft (PS4)

Space oddity

In this reviewer's opinion, space disaster is one of the most interesting concepts in entertainment. You have the likes of Gravity, Apollo 18, and The Martian in film, Seveneves in literature, and Alien Isolation in games. Adr1ft, the debut game from developer Three One Zero, now joins the party following its PlayStation 4 release...

ADR1FT Drags Out the Obligatory Clair de Lune Trailer

A space odyssey

It's a lovely piece of music, but Clair de Lune doesn't half get overused in this industry. ADR1FT, the space-faring sim by threeonezero, is the latest to use the heart-breaking piece, as it splices bits of gameplay with press quotes. This is for the Oculus Rift release, but it's worth remembering that the title – with, we assume,...

It's every developer's worst nightmare: you're mere days away from E3, when your flashy new trailer gets leaked.
