Sparrows Cross the Finish Line in Destiny: The Taken King

Bumping Sparrows

It's been a long-held dream by all Guardians to be able to race against each other with their Sparrows.

Review: Deadpool (PS4)

Deadpool (PS4)

A marvel

Deadpool's PlayStation 4 port is a hard one to review, considering that it's just a straight port – no graphical update, no new modes, not even any new extras. At first glance, £30 for a game that launched a couple of years ago seems a bit steep. Luckily, this is a game that has aged well. On the PS4 we've had our share of bad ports –...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4)

Juggernaut

Despite sales remaining strong, it's safe to say that Call of Duty has been in a bit of a slump as of late. Although Advanced Warfare was well received, there were some rough patches, and most CoD fans still shudder whenever they hear the word Ghosts.

Sony had a real opportunity to create something special here, but this is easily the worst looking new-gen system to date. Still, kudos to PlayStation Access' Hollie Bennett...
