Crash Bandicoot's First PS4 Appearance Looks Awesome

Crash bash

We all collectively rolled our eyes when Crash Bandicoot was confirmed for Skylanders: Imaginators – after all, we all know how Activision treated fellow PlayStation favourite Spyro when this series started. But it looks like it's learned its lesson this time around: the Thumpin' Wumpa Island level that will appear as a timed...

Destiny: Rise of Iron PS4 Exclusive Content Includes a Quest, a Ship, and a Map

Deal?

That's not a bad looking ship, is it? Okay, so it's just a glorified loading screen, but still, it's easy on the eyes. It's also exclusive to the PlayStation 4 version of Destiny: Rise of Iron, for a time. Indeed, Bungie's revealed what the PlayStation Nation can expect from the upcoming expansion in terms of exclusive stuff. Naturally,...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Latest Cinematic Is 'Murica Through and Through

Eff yeah

We're not sure what to think of this. We've gone on record saying that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare looks like a return to form for Infinity Ward, but this 'Long Live the Captain' cinematic couldn't possibly be any more cheesy. We suppose that's what the developer's going for, but yeesh – it's all a bit cringe, isn't it? Even worse,...

You Shouldn't Feel Bad for Liking Destiny

Rise of Iron looks to continue the love-hate relationship

With Rise of Iron details flooding the news yesterday, it made me stop and think about Destiny as a whole. We've all been there, I know, but I came to the conclusion that there's nothing wrong with being excited for the upcoming expansion – there's actually nothing wrong with liking...

Marvel Ultimate Alliance PS4 Isn't a Particularly Heroic Port

Doesn't improve massively upon 2006 original

Marvel Ultimate Alliance and its sequel was excreted onto the PlayStation Store this week, presumably as Activision scrambles to fulfil its contractually obliged quota of comic book-themed releases. And lo and behold, the port kinda sucks. Digital Foundry's dug out its ol' framerate ticker yet again and...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare PS4 Gameplay Keeps Its Boots on the Ground

My God! It's full of stars

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare may have felt the full wrath of YouTube's deadly dislike button, but we're really starting to like the look of this game. Activision has uploaded the first ten or so minutes of Infinity Ward's new first-person shooter online, which opens with a ground-based battle, before blasting off into...

Review: Ghostbusters (PS4)

Ghostbusters (PS4)

Give up the ghost

The hubbub surrounding the new Ghostbusters movie has been so well documented that even the Internet-deprived people of North Korea have likely heard about it. The response to the first trailer for the 2016 reboot of the supernatural comedy franchise has been nothing short of vitriolic, to the point that it's one of the most hated...

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Descent (PS4)

Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Descent (PS4)

Decent

With the summer gaming drought beginning and an onslaught of new shooters coming out later this year, now is the perfect time for a good Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC – for those who aren't sick of it yet, of course. Descent offers the usual four multiplayer maps and single Zombies level, and in spite of the familiarity, is the best DLC...

Destiny's Grimoire Cards Are Pretty Awesome

A glimpse at what could have been

Destiny is famous for a lot of things, but a strong and structured storyline is most definitely not one of them. In fact, it's more renowned for telling you that it doesn't have time for a plot. I'm here to tell you that Destiny actually possesses potentially one of the deepest and most well thought out universes...
