One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall in Transformers: Devastation's New Trailer

The end of the road

There's some serious optics ripping in this brand new trailer for Transformers: Devastation, which has been released right in time for the San Diego Comic Con. In the new clip for the Platinum Games developed brawler, we get a good look at Optimus Prime and Megatron going hammer and tongs – fortunately, there's no Hot Rod to...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's Beta Blasts Exclusively onto PS4 Next Month

It's no secret

Activision's partnership with Sony regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which was revealed during E3 2015, came as a big shock to many. The mega publisher announced that it was actually switching sides to promote one of gaming's biggest franchises on PlayStation, and along with timed exclusive downloadable content, part of the...

Conversations with Creators Kicks Off with Destiny: The Taken King

Chewing the cud

We'll let you into a little secret here: interviewing big developers is hard. With so many other publications in the world, it's almost impossible to land a lengthy chat with a AAA team – and when the opportunity does arise, there'll almost always be a public relations person waiting to shut down every other question that you ask...

Destiny's Writing Is 'Boring as S***' According to Arrested Development Actor David Cross

Agree?

David Cross, perhaps best known for his role as Tobias in American sitcom Arrested Development, was actually involved in the development of Destiny at one point, the actor has revealed. Along with comedian Brian Posehn, the duo was asked to "punch up" the sci-fi shooter's script by adding in some jokes. "We were flown up to Bellevue,...

Black Ops III Will Apparently Feature the Most Complex Narrative of Any Call of Duty

It's even got an in-game wiki

We know what you're thinking: a new Call of Duty, a new reason for the related studio to brag about how much better than the previous titles it'll be. And, while we can't say that we don't agree - at least to an extent - we can play the middle man, and throw some tasty developer quotes regarding Call of Duty: Black...

News: So, This Is How Sony Took the Marketing Rights for Call of Duty Away from Microsoft

So, This Is How Sony Took the Marketing Rights for Call of Duty Away from Microsoft

It was destiny

Easily one of the biggest megatons of Sony's E3 2015 press conference was the fact that the Japanese giant had somehow stolen the marketing rights for Call of Duty: Black Ops III from Microsoft, despite the fact that the franchise has been an Xbox staple for years upon years now. The marketing deal that the American company had with...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Will Let You Create and Share Your Own Parks

Will support up to 20 skaters at once

Robomodo's certainly talking a great game with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, so it's a bit of a shame that the title currently looks so low-budget. Due out from 29th September on the PlayStation 4 – a PlayStation 3 version is due out at some point thereafter – the release aims to plot a return to the classic...

News: Sony 'Really Wanted' That Call of Duty: Black Ops III Deal with Activision

Sony 'Really Wanted' That Call of Duty: Black Ops III Deal with Activision

Destiny deal helped as well

Whether you realise it or not, Sony teaming up with Activision for Call of Duty: Black Ops III is a big deal. It marks the end of a partnership between Xbox and Activision that lasted nearly an entire console generation, it probably cost Sony a fortune, and – while it won't necessarily guarantee the Japanese giant the...

News: Oh Great, Both Prototypes Are Coming to PS4

Oh Great, Both Prototypes Are Coming to PS4

Meat is Mercer

Activision should remaster the Prototype franchise for the PlayStation 4, said absolutely no one ever. We reckon that re-releases certainly have their place on the Japanese giant's new-gen system, but let's be realistic here: there are some franchises that belong in the bargain bin at a second hand games store, and Prototype is one of...

E3 2015: 20 New Destiny: The Taken King Screenshots Aim to Blow You Away

20 New Destiny: The Taken King Screenshots Aim to Blow You Away

Return of the king?

Destiny fans are getting pretty hyped about upcoming expansion The Taken King. The meaty add-on, which is set to launch on the 15th September, includes whole new areas, an entirely new storyline, and numerous fresh activities. After two relatively disappointing slices of downloadable content in its lifetime so far, we're hoping...

E3 2015: Transformers: Devastation's Vehicle Attacks Are More Than Meets the Eye

Transformers: Devastation's Vehicle Attacks Are More Than Meets the Eye

Autobots, roll out

Back when Transformers: Devastation first leaked, we pondered how the vehicle transformations in the title would work. There were no screenshots showing off any of the playable Autobots in their transformed state, so we wondered whether developer Platinum Games had ripped that part of the experience out. It turns out that it's...

E3 2015: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Looks Crap

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Looks Crap

Epic bail

Many dreams have come true at E3 2015 – but a good Tony Hawk title is a fantasy too far. The first screenshots of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 looked rough, but the debut gameplay footage is even worse. We're not just talking about the graphics either: the level design and physics also look bad. To be fair, the game's still in development,...

News: Prototype 2 Is Probably Getting a Re-Release on PS4

Prototype 2 Is Probably Getting a Re-Release on PS4

Fair enough

Not quite a megaton E3 2015 announcement, it looks as though Prototype 2 is coming to the PlayStation 4 courtesy of a remaster. The PlayStation 3 sandbox title puts you in the role of an overpowered, biologically enhanced super-hero-of-sorts, and basically lets you go absolutely mental as you fight the army, monsters, and God knows...

PlayStation Teams Up With Activision for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Shows Off Explosive Gameplay

Map packs will be coming to the PS4 first

After a partnership that lasted an entire console generation, Activision has broken ties with Xbox to team up with Sony. Of course, Call of Duty: Black Ops III is still coming to the Xbox One, but all of the game's DLC will hit the PlayStation 4 first. Treyarch had some fast-paced gameplay to show off as...
