No excuses not to play now
Knight and day
It's no surprise that a global phenomenon like Minecraft has inspired countless other games in a similar style. Portal Knights is another title that borrows Minecraft's blocky art style and crafting system, but it manages to put a fresh spin on many things and in some ways outdoes those that have come before it. The most obvious way...
Lack of control
Control is the upcoming action adventure game from Remedy Entertainment, the studio's first game to come to PlayStation for quite some time. Fortunately, it's looking pretty promising, with an unusual premise and setting. You can see a little more of the game's environments in the new trailer, embedded above. Called The Oldest...
Launches next year
Games big and small were announced at this year's Game Awards, and one title that almost got swept under the carpet is Journey to the Savage Planet, a first person adventure game from a brand new developer. Typhoon Studios was founded by industry veterans, whose combined works include Assassin's Creed III, Far Cry 4, and Batman:...
No excuses not to play now
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was one of the most emotionally challenging titles of 2017, and it’s finally getting a retail release on 4th December. Published by 505 Games on the PlayStation 4, the title will compile the full Celtic adventure on Blu-ray for the first time. Here’s what we said about the release when...
Republished on Wednesday 26th September 2018: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of October's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. At first glance, Laser League bares little resemblance to Roll7's previous work, but the similarities are there if you look below the surface. Like...
505 Games takes over
Roll7 is the small studio responsible for some fantastic games, but its latest effort, Laser League, evidently has struggled to win over consumers. The OlliOlli games and Not a Hero were small in scale but offered great arcade-like experiences, and while Laser League in some ways fits into that mould as well, its reliance on a...
Also delayed into 2019
Crowdfunded Castlevania revival Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will no longer release on the PS Vita, as a new Kickstarter update confirms that development for Sony’s handheld has been canned. Backers will have the opportunity to switch to a different system or request a full refund – either way, it’s Game Over for...
Taking back control
Appearing on Sony's post-conference livestream, Remedy Entertainment showed off a little more of its new PS4 game, Control. We got to see a pretty cool trailer for the game during Sony's presser, but the above video contains a brief look at gameplay, and it's looking rather interesting indeed. You play as Jesse Faden who, on the...
Assuming direct control
Despite Sony stressing they'd be bringing only four games with them to E3 this year, it was generally accepted there'd be something more on display, even if it was just small. Not only did Sony show off a plethora of trailers during what was sort of an intermission for the people there in-person, there were some pretty big...
Yes, it'll be on PS4
Remedy, the developer of games like Max Payne and more recently Quantum Break, will officially reveal its next game at E3 2018 in a month and some change. The title – which is dubbed Project 7 and is being published by 505 Games – is set to deploy on the PlayStation 4, marking the Finnish firm’s first release on a Sony...
Roll7 explains all
Roll7's output so far has consisted of single player, pixel art games, and they're all great fun. The two OlliOlli games in particular are brilliant fun, while Not a Hero's quirky humour and simple shoot-outs make it a compelling curiosity as well. However, the small developer's next game, Laser League, is a big departure. It's a...
Nein out of ten
Men-on-a-mission movies set during World War II – such as Guns of the Navarone or Where Eagles Dare – that see a mismatched group of people embarking on near suicidal missions have long been inspiration for video games. RAID: World War II – a co-op multiplayer title in the vein of the Payday series – hopes to apply this...
Fast and furious
The anti-gravity racing genre may not be as popular as it once was, but that doesn’t mean developers aren’t still creating games for the genre. WipEout Omega Collection recently launched on the PlayStation 4, and while it was a fairly impressive collection, the fact that it focused squarely on the past held it back in some...
500 Days of June
Games are often about how many people you can slaughter, and the efficiency with which you can do so. This makes death abstract – a means to an end. The more death you can cause, the more points you’ll get, and the more points you get, the more likely you are to win. Last Day of June isn't about death in the abstract. In...
Ovosonico must not suffer with OCD, because it’s dated its promising PlayStation 4 indie title Last Day of June for release on the last day of August. The “emotional interactive journey” will drop on 31st August, with pre-orders opening today and boasting a 25 per cent discount for PlayStation Plus members. The title will cost £14.99 in...
If you’ve never played Danish developer Playdead’s macabre puzzle platformers Limbo and Inside, then you simply need this retail double-pack in your life. The collection – being published by 505 Games – is set to release on 12th September in North America and 15th September in Europe, at a reasonable price point of $29.99 and...
Drowning in blood
Koji Igarashi’s anticipated Castlevania-esque adventure Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has gotten the trailer treatment ahead of E3 2017, showcasing a boss fight involving bodily fluids and umbrellas. It’s definitely coming together now this one, though we still find ourselves irritated by the way in which the main character...
Murasaki Baby maker Ovosonico at the helm
This sounds promising, doesn’t it? Murasaki Baby maker Ovosonico has announced its long-awaited next project: Last Day of June. The game – a puzzler about love and loss – has some big names attached to it, including musician and record producer Steven Wilson and Jess Cope of Frankenweenie fame. Much...
How fast do you wanna go?
You wait years for a good WipEout clone, and then several are scheduled to release the same year that the seminal series is making a comeback. Redout is one such anti-grav racer, and it’s set to suit up on the PlayStation 4 starting 29th August in North America and 31st August in Europe. It’ll be available...
To be published by 505 Games
We already knew that Remedy had expanded its engine's support to the PlayStation 4, but now its next game has been confirmed for Sony's system. The Finnish developer – who's long been one of Microsoft's primary partners – is working on a title called Project 7, a cinematic third-person shooter set in "a new...
Step right in
A colourful action role-playing game with crafting elements, Portal Knights promises to be a fun alternative to the likes of Minecraft on PlayStation 4. It's got all of the usual bells and whistles: co-op for up to four players, randomised worlds to explore, and dungeons full of loot, but it's the RPG side of things that interests us...
An action role-playing game set in a sandbox world that features an open crafting system? Where have we heard that one before? Okay, so its not exactly the most original game coming to the PlayStation 4 this year, but Portal Knights is supposed to be good fun on PC, and its colourful announcement trailer has at least got us interested...
Look and you'll sea
As it stands, ABZU is an incredibly pretty game, but it just got even prettier for PS4 Pro owners. Turn your system on and you should be notified of a new update for the release which takes advantage of Sony's supercharged console. While details are scarce to say the least, the official patch notes mention "PlayStation 4 Pro...
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...
That game you like is going to come back in style
We recently spent some hands-on time with developer Variable State's upcoming game, Virginia. A first-person mystery title, Virginia sees players assume the role of FBI Agent Anne Tarver. As Tarver, the goal is to discover the whereabouts of a missing person: Lucas Fairfax. We had the chance to play...
There was a point ten years ago when it felt like the popularity of poker had reached fever pitch. You couldn't turn on late night television without it appearing on more than one channel, and there always seemed to be some bloke down the pub who swore he'd made a serious chunk of change online. This rise in gambling websites left poker...
We're not going to lie to you: we hadn't heard of Virginia until today. But according to every article that we've read, the 505 Games published first-person thriller is one to watch – and it's coming to the PlayStation 4 starting 22nd September. As pointed out by the press release, the game's been inspired by genre-bending 90s shows...
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. But having garnered a hefty following...
Card to beat
Prominence Poker shuffled its way onto the PlayStation 4 this week, and we figured that we'd take a quick look at the free-to-play gambling sim. You can check out the archive from our livestream embedded above to see whether we were dealt a good hand – or if our chips were down.
Deal with it
Are you a shark short of a full house on your PlayStation 4? Well, you can bet on Prominence Poker finding a place in your daily gaming shuffle. Set in a gambling utopia, this free-to-play casino sim sees you create your own character and trick your way to the top of the tabletop elite. It's a high-stakes race to the top, as you work...
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...
Gravity's a bitch
Space survival sim Adr1ft is set to launch on PlayStation 4 on 15th July, according to creator Adam Orth. Although the game was designed with VR in mind – and, indeed, delayed from its original PC release to accommodate the launch of Oculus Rift – the PS4 version is yet to be confirmed for PlayStation VR when it launches in...
And it’s not far off
While it didn't feature in Sony's killer E3 press conference, the gorgeous indie title, ABZU, from the art director of Journey, did release a trailer during the show. Aside from the unsurprisingly gorgeous visuals and music, the trailer brought with it something even greater: a launch date, and it's coming fairly soon - 2nd...
OMG! Nice shot!
Remember a time before Rocket League? No, us neither. The addictive PlayStation 4 car-meets-soccer sim will take a shot at retail this summer, with 505 Games handling all of the headache-inducing distribution stuff. Imaginatively dubbed the Rocket League: Collector's Edition, the physical release will launch with the title's trio...
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,...
Quadro Delta and the team behind the 2D hit survival game Terraria recently announced the release of Pixel Piracy on the PlayStation 4 – and the boarding begins on 16th February. In the game, you control a pirate captain who recruits a bunch of savvy shipmates to help you on your adventures through the seas looting, pillaging, and...
Remember intriguing space sim, Adr1ft? Well, you may want to forget about it for a few months. The intergalactic escapade was not only delayed until 2016 today, but there's currently no launch window for the PlayStation 4 version. The title will instead deploy day-and-date with the Oculus Rift headset, which means that you'll have to...
Cool story, bro
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons released to much critical acclaim around two years ago. Celebrated for its unique control scheme and touching narrative, it was a hit, and fans to this day hold it in very high regard, among peers such as Journey and Ico. Fortunately for those of you who missed it the first time around, publisher 505...
The heist life
As a law abiding citizen, committing robbery is probably the last thing on your mind. That said, somewhere inside your deepest thoughts – whether you'd admit it or not – you've probably pondered what it would be like to throw off the shackles of society's laws, and turn to a life crime. In Payday 2: Crimewave Edition for the...
Let's go bro
Family-fuelled downloadable title Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is getting the re-release treatment on PlayStation 4 later this year, publisher 505 Games has revealed. The original PlayStation 3 version of the game launched back in 2013, to much critical acclaim. Following the story of - you guessed it - two brothers, the siblings...
It's every developer's worst nightmare: you're mere days away from E3, when your flashy new trailer gets leaked. Such is the case for California-based outfit threeonezero, whose video for PlayStation 4 space sim ADR1FT is now, erm, adrift. Instead of playing coy, though, the developer has cleverly decided to simply release the video into...
More skills, new skill system, twice as many characters
Starbreeze Studios had a hard time putting out updates for Payday 2 on the PlayStation 3 – the hardware was a decade old, after all. But now the developer is finally getting around to releasing a PlayStation 4 version of the game, which will include more than a handful of new additions to the...
Vintage Vauxhalls need not apply
Gran Turismo will find itself in good company should it ever arrive on the PlayStation 4, as acclaimed Italian outfit Kunos Simulazioni has confirmed that Assetto Corsa will be bringing its brand of exacting simulation racing to the PlayStation 4 in 2016. There's very little to say about the console port just yet,...
Starbreeze Studios made grown men weep (don't deny it) with its exceptionally crafted Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons back on the PlayStation 3. Well, it seems that we'll be dabbing away at damp eyes once again (please, stop denying it) as the title has been rated by the German classification board for a release on the PlayStation 4...
Despite its grisly premise, zombie franchise The Walking Dead has been the flavour of the month for many, many months now. That's a figure of speech, of course; we're hoping that no one has taken any actual culinary tips from the show's shuffling stars. At any rate, the undead hit has seen all manner of video game adaptations –...
A new chapter
Ask anyone who has played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and they'll tell you that it's a fascinating adventure that culminates with an emotional punch to the gut. Future sequels were hardly implied by this standalone indie title, however, but developer Starbreeze Studios has announced that it has handed the property over to publisher...
On the rob
Re-releases are all the rage right now, but this one is so low-profile that we'd forgotten it was even happening in the first place. PSU reports that Best Buy has slapped a 21st April release date on Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, the PlayStation 4 update of Overkill Software's acclaimed robbery simulator. That's a Tuesday so could be...
There are finite settings that can be used in games, and space is a good one. Forthcoming indie Adr1ft appears to have taken a few tips from a certain Sandra Bullock movie, as it sees you attempting to repair your damaged space vessel in the isolation of outer-space. The pretty PlayStation 4 title will set a course for the stars next...
Sony’s no stranger to winning console comparison contests these days – and the PlayStation 4 has once again put a bullet in its closest competitor, the Xbox One. The visual wizards over at Digital Foundry report that the Japanese giant’s next-gen console provides the best home for long-distance shooter Sniper Elite III – assuming...
505 Games’ morbidly graphic long-range shooter Sniper Elite III has enjoyed a second week at the top of the UK sales charts, putting a bullet in fellow next-gen rival Watch Dogs. Despite being available on last-gen systems as well, both games sold best on Sony’s latest machine, evidencing the commanding position that the Japanese giant...
EA Sports UFC is going down, down in an earlier round, as Rebellion’s oddly satisfying Sniper Elite III has cocked its rifle and pulled the trigger on the UK charts. Despite launching on next-gen and last-gen systems, the release commanded 65 per cent of sales on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with Sony’s latest machine...
It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4. In Sniper Elite III, rather than making you think about the needless loss of life, this latest instalment in the distance shooter series asks that you revel in...
Everybody put your hands up
Overkill Studios’ popular co-operative stealing simulator Payday 2 is heading to the PlayStation 4, with the freshly adopted Crimewave Edition moniker. According to Eurogamer.net, it will come bundled with “enhanced features and a stash of new content”, though it’s not entirely clear what that will entail. We...
Austin Wintory providing the music
We hope you like whimsical indie games, because this year's E3 has been full of them. Doing its best to stand out from the crowd with an underwater focus and the inclusion of numerous strange and wonderful creatures, ABZU comes to the PlayStation 4 from the mind of Journey's art director. The brilliant PS3 title's...
Build your own port
Enjoyable sidescrolling build-'em-up Terraria will be digging its way onto the PlayStation 4 later this year, publisher 505 Games has confirmed. Although details on next-gen features are scarce, the game will be on show at E3 next week. Hopefully, the 2-D title will support some sort of cross-buy, much like the PS4 edition of...
Steady your nerve
Did you already kill legendary historical figure Hitler in Sniper Elite V2? Forget about that, because developer Rebellion’s giving you the opportunity to do it all over again – this time in the sunbaked setting of Africa. Those that pre-order the upcoming Sniper Elite III on either the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 will...
For as unashamedly goofy as it may be, there’s something entertaining about the Sniper Elite series’ ostentatious X-ray killcams. The previous entry in the long-range escapade allowed you to observe in intricate detail the damage that your bullets inflicted on your adversaries – and unsurprisingly, the upcoming Sniper Elite 3...
Tiny brains, big character
Science: it’s a wonderful thing. Without science, we’d still be muddling through the dark ages, in a world without Facebook and instant soup. Of course, before such manmade wonders can exist, they need to be tested – and what better way is there to trial such innovations than by exploiting poor animals? Don’t call...
Back when Terraria launched on the PlayStation 3, we praised its diverse collection of content and its overall depth, but felt that the title's awkward user interface and time consuming gameplay held it back from greatness in our review. On Sony's handheld, however, the game makes use of the system's touch screen – but is the new...
Rebellion’s gruesome but gratifying scope-‘em-up Sniper Elite III is still on target for a 2014 release, according to a brand new trailer that the company fired online earlier today. The clip shows protagonist Karl Fairburne scouting out the ancient city of Tobruk in Libya – and putting a bullet right in the eye socket of an...
Off to work we go
Indie side-scrolling Minecraft-esque smash Terraria is set to start digging onto the PlayStation Vita this week, publisher 505 Games has announced. The title will scoop out its bucket and spade on 11th December in Europe, with a North American release set to rise out of the procedurally generated dirt a little later on 17th...
Grand Theft Auto IV returns
It looks like the UK market couldn’t get enough heist action last week. In addition to Starbreeze’s robbery simulator Payday 2 shooting straight to the summit of the sales charts, Grand Theft Auto IV also put in an impressive reappearance on the back of the recent Grand Theft Auto Online reveal. It’s a testament to...
Game was not good enough
Much like the sport that it’s based upon, Ashes Cricket 2013 will be standing around in its whites for a few more months. 505 Games has decided to hold back the sleepy simulator until November, due to the title not meeting quality expectations. It will now deploy alongside the second Ashes series, which is set to be played...
Terraria is a strange title. Its 2D world suggests simple fun when compared to the gritty realism that most games portray, while its quirky styling and audio lead to an often comedic atmosphere. Don’t be fooled by the aesthetics, though – this is a release that demands your time and effort if you want to get the most out of it...
It's off to work we go
If you’ve been eagerly awaiting an opportunity to dig out your 16-bit shovel and you happen to reside in Europe, then know that salvation is at hand. 505 Games has confirmed that popular indie title Terraria is coming to the PlayStation Store on 15th May in the region – almost two months after its release in North...
Tunnelling onto a new home
Add another indie hit to the PlayStation Vita’s release schedule, as just like previously rumoured, Terraria is digging onto the handheld later this year. The port – which launched on PlayStation 3 in North America this week – is being handled by Engine Software, a specialist in handheld conversions. There’s no...
Question will be addressed next week
Popular indie sandbox title Terraria is digging onto the PlayStation 3 next week. The conversion of Re-Logic’s cult PC smash-hit will ship with a smattering of new features, including overhauled controls, new boss battles, and split-screen support. But while publisher 505 Games readies itself for the port's PS3...
Sequel also firing onto PlayStation 3
A sequel to the surprisingly satisfying long-range shooter Sniper Elite V2 will target both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 next year. The straight-firing Sniper Elite 3 will aim to capitalise on the success of its predecessor, which IGN reports went on to sell an impressive 1.1 million copies in 2012...
Downloadable shooter planning the perfect heist
Bloodcurdling masks and carefully staged crime sprees will make a comeback this summer, as Overkill Software applies the finishing touches to Payday 2. The sequel to 2011’s likeable co-op heist simulator, Payday: The Heist, was formally announced earlier today, and promises some noteworthy...
It's off to work we go
PC indie smash hit Terraria will up sticks and arrive on the PlayStation Network in February, publisher 505 Games has announced. The creative side-scroller will come with a wealth of new content, including a full tutorial, enhanced controls, and a fresh boss battle. The re-release will also feature a throng of original...
Construct a better world
Ace indie game Terraria is taking a detour onto PlayStation 3 – and this brand new trailer proves it. The short video shows the game in action, and teases the bevy of new content being added to the console version. There’s still no release date for the downloadable title, but publisher 505 Games promises it’s “coming...
On the rob
505 Games will publish the secretive sequel to PSN shooter Payday: The Heist, developer Starbreeze has announced. The publisher will also handle the release of the Swedish outfit’s new intellectual property, P13. Starbreeze snapped up original Payday: The Heist developer Overkill Software earlier this year. We suspect the sequel will...
Ready, teddy, go
We’re not sure anyone expected a Naughty Bear sequel, but considering the promise of the original game, we’re secretly glad that Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise exists. The digital download’s aiming to “deliver a dramatically enhanced experience”, and judging from the tweaks featured in this brand new trailer – it just...
Taking candy from a baby
505 Games has picked up the sequel to Payday: The Heist, developer Overkill Software has announced. The studio – which itself was snagged by Starbreeze earlier in the year – revealed the news on its official website this afternoon. The company said that the deal will allow the studio to “pull off heists on a scale...
Panic in paradise
Naughty Bear is back. After the original title seriously under delivered, we can’t say we ever expected to type those four words – but here we are, staring at a press release for Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise. Honestly, we’re not making this up. This time the murderous soft toy is set to saunter onto the more appropriate...
Bang, you're dead
As far as we’re concerned, sniper rifles have always been the most satisfying weapons in games. There’s something rewarding and morally profound about picking off an unsuspecting target from long-range distance, and the original Sniper Elite on PS2 captured that sentiment spectacularly. Since Rebellion’s original stealth...
Pull the trigger
Publisher 505 Games has confirmed that it will release a demo for Rebellion’s upcoming Sniper Elite V2. The short sampler will launch at some point this month ahead of the game’s full release in May. It’s unclear what the demo will include, but we’re expecting a mission or two from the final game. Remember, if you pre-order...
End this hellish war
It’s telling that the most interesting thing about Sniper Elite V2 is its pre-order bonus, but, having said that, killing flippin' Hitler is a pretty big selling-point after all. The additional mission’s up for grabs now for all those who register interest in Rebellion’s sequel ahead of its 4th May release. Just please,...
Reich for the stars
Rebellion’s hoping the draw of rewriting history will be enough to get you to register your interest Sniper Elite V2 before release. Anyone that pre-orders a copy of the 505 Games published title will get to put a bullet in the noggin of one of the world’s greatest dictators: Adolf Hitler. The bonus level – named...
The Zumba train continues to do what it does best in this week's British sales charts
That's right, Zumba Fitness has made it thirteen weeks at the top of the UK sales charts. We sense the game's time is up this week though, with the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution teetering on the horizon. Elsewhere, it's pretty much as you were. Hit the jump for the full top-ten. Zumba Fitness (505..
We're starting to wonder if any game will ever dethrone Zumba Fitness
Deus Ex: Human Revolution? Maybe. Resistance 3? Possibly. Dead Island? We hope so. It has to happen at some point, right? This is Zumba Fitness' ninth week at the top of the UK sales charts. It's outrageous. Catch the full top-ten after the hop. There's nothing to talk about, because no games are being released. Welcome to the..
Yes, Zumba Fitness is still number one
No, no new games have been released. Sunglasses. Deal with it. Zumba Fitness (505 Games) DiRT 3 (Codemasters) Cars 2 (Disney Interactive) Just Dance 2: Extra Songs (Ubisoft) LEGO: Pirates Of The Caribbean (Disney Interactive) FIFA 11 (EA Games) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two (EA Games) LEGO: Harry Potter - Years 1-4 (Warner Bros) L.A. Noire..
Perhaps the bigger story here is that there's a rugby game coming out
Developed by HB Studios and published by 505 Games, Rugby World Cup 2011 is due out at the end of the month. But those eager to learn how the sport of rugby can possibly translate to video games will find a demo on the PlayStation Network tomorrow. The demo features England and South Africa and is set in Auckland. Intriguing.
505 Games has released a new trailer attempting to prove why its upcoming Supremacy MMA is the "dirtiest MMA game yet"
We think the subtle use of classical music adds to the effect. The visuals aren't great, but the game certainly looks gnarly.</em>
To be fair -- not much else launched in the UK last week to challenge Zumba Fitness' unbeatable reign
There was movement elsewhere however. Cars 2 climbed into second, while Call Of Juarez: The Cartel sticked to the top three. Elsewhere there's really not much else to say: regular favourites DiRT 3, FIFA 11 and Call Of Duty: Black Ops all charted. Someone topple Zumba Fitness, please. Zumba..
Will it be MMAssive?
Vita's getting its first taste of blood with Supremacy MMA later this year. The arcade-styled take on mixed martial arts will reach Vita in time for Christmas, complete with its female fighters and speedy gameplay. The announcement doesn't mention whether the game will make use of Vita's unique features, but stay tuned for more...
It's been a bizarre day for handheld systems
The Internet seems to have replaced all its goodwill for the PlayStation Vita — born out of an excellent E3 showing and fantastic price-point — for trepidation and concerns. The main take-away, as far as we understand it, is that the pressure is back on Sony now Nintendo's decided to dramatically drop the price of its Nintendo 3DS due to some..
Shake and shimmy with Sandy
The inexplicably popular musical Grease is coming to PlayStation Move later this year, with UK publisher 505 Games planning to unleash it on the Christmas crowds on 4th November. Last year the game released on Nintendo Wii to less than glowing reviews, but earlier this year 505 promised an improved Grease for Sony's...
Pretty neat for Tom Cruise fans this
Sony has revealed a couple of Blu-ray movie/video game hybrids for Top Gun and Nascar: Days Of Thunder. Each of the packs — published by 505 Games — include a copy of the movie and its respective game. It's the first time either of these games have received retail releases, as they were previously only...
505 Games has announced that it will publish Sniper Elite V2 on the PlayStation 3 next year
The game is being developed by Rebellion. Its very exciting to be working with one of the new breed of major publishers like 505 Games, said Rebellion CEO, Jason Kingsley. Sniper Elite was an important, genre-defining property and were hoping to have even greater success by teaming up with the..
Tell us about it, stud
Last year's Grease: The Game took the beloved musical and turned it into a party game for Wii, when what we all really wanted was to get up to sing and jive as Danny Zuko, Sandy, Rizzo and the rest of the Rydell High gang. Later this year we'll finally be able to make all those dreams come true with the announcement that...
A real mixed bag
Whether you want to burn off the Christmas turkey in Zumba Fitness or bowl a turkey in Brunswick Pro Bowling, you'll be able to do both from February as 505 Games announces European release dates for both titles. Or release date, rather: both games will launch on February 4th in the UK, and both will support the PlayStation Move...
We'd almost forgotten about Naughty Bear
While we loved the game's concept, we found the reality of its gameplay sorely lacking. Sadly, we weren't the only ones drawn in by that initial batch of comical trailers. Plenty of you bought the game, and we suppose some of you want a bit more. Thankfully, A2M and 505 Games are going the right way about it...
505 Games are one of the newer publishers on the block
They've already dropped Naughty Bear on us. And now they've announced Deep Black, a game from Russian studio Biart Games. It's basically an underwater third-person shooter, in which you'll use specialised equipment (harpoons!) to take out a bunch of underwater threats. Neat concept. Expect to hear more about this over the coming months.
We haven't got a clue what you actually do in Naughty Bear
Not one clue. We think it's some kind of open-world stealth game but honestly, we don't know. For all we know, it could just be a series of hilarious clips sewn together. Either way, we know we'll find out this Friday when our copy arrives. That's right guys, Naughty Bear is out this Friday in Europe. Heck, this is the launch trailer above!..
Naughty Bear may not be a series of ridiculous trailers after all
Apparently it's a real game too — with multiplayer. Yup, that's right, Naughty Bear's taking the naughtiness to the modem, with game modes such as Jelly Wars and Cake Walk. Jelly Wars has three bears working co-operatively to collect jelly, while a single Naughty Bear tries to stop them in their tracks and maim their cuddly bodies..
Well, we're not really sure what to say
Sit back, click the video above and enjoy. No words can top Naughty Bear's latest trailer. Oh how we long for this game. Day one, as the kids on the forums say.
Another day, another Naughty Bear trailer
And guess what? The nastiest stuffed teddy this side of toy-land is up to his old tricks again. This time he's making candy-fluff. Eat around the buttons, they were once a helpless bear's eyes.
At this stage, does it even matter whether Naughty Bear is desperately awful as an actual video game? The answer is no, because we're having way too much fun laughing at the stupid self-awareness of these teaser trailers
And also, we just want a game that casts a murderous teddy bear as its protagonist to be a massive hit.
