Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! Tickles PS4's Taste Buds in 2016

Belly buster

Here's a bit of Push Square Towers trivia for you: this author loves cooking games. Whether it's the minigames of Cooking Mama or the frantic restaurant management of Order Up, your humble host has prepared more virtual meals than you've had hot dinners. Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! may well have the least appetising name since Barfy...

The Team Behind Skullgirls Is Making an Action RPG Inspired by Metroid

You know it'll look good

Skullgirls is a great 2D fighter with a fantastic art direction, so it's exciting to hear that the team behind it, Lab Zero Games, is branching out into other genres. The studio's announced that it's working on a title called Indivisible - an action role-playing game that's inspired by the likes of Metroid. Sadly, we...

How does that sound

After teasing the project for the last few days, developer Piranha Bytes has revealed ELEX - a sci-fi, open world title that'll eventually make it to PlayStation 4.

Whispering Willows Has an Out-of-Body Experience on PS4, Vita

Look upon thyself

E3 2015 didn't bring as many of the smaller games as this author was expecting, but we suppose that that's because new ones are announced literally everyday on the PlayStation Blog. Whispering Willows is one such title, which is set to debut on the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 30th June in Europe and North America. It'll launch...

World of Final Fantasy Brings Square Enix's Beloved Universe to PS4, Vita

What a world

A surprise announcement at Sony's E3 press conference - and not just because it's coming to Vita - Square Enix is developing a turn-based role-playing game known as World of Final Fantasy. The title, which is incredibly cute, celebrates the, er, world of Final Fantasy. The release's debut trailer is a short one, but we're certainly...

Firewatch's PS4 Trailer Is Smart, Stunning, and Scary   

Catching fire

One of the more innocuous announcements at Sony's impressive E3 press conference today was that indie darling Firewatch will be making its console debut on PlayStation 4. The title sees you playing as a volunteer fire lookout officer who discovers mysterious occurrences in the wilderness. Your only means of communication is through...

Media Molecule's New Game Dreams Lets You Recreate Your, Er, Dreams 

Dreams really do come true

In an E3 press conference packed with stellar announcements, Media Molecule's new PlayStation 4 title Dreams stood out as one of the most bizarre and exciting. The Guilford-based developer's latest project sees you using the Dualshock 4 to shape and mold any object you can imagine. You can then bring your masterpiece to...

E3 2015: Horizon: Zero Dawn Is All About Killing Giant, Mechanical Dinosaurs

Horizon: Zero Dawn Is All About Killing Giant, Mechanical Dinosaurs

And it's a PS4 exclusive

We've known that Horizon was in production for about a year now, but actually seeing Guerilla Games' new IP in action has shown us that it very well may be a big hitter for the PlayStation 4. It's clear that Sony has faith in the project, too, as it was the second game to be shown off during its press conference. After...

E3 2015: Are We Dreaming? Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Coming to PS4

Are We Dreaming? Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Coming to PS4

Wait what

We have no words, only feelings. In an announcement that was rumoured, but we couldn't possibly believe, Final Fantasy VII is being remade on PlayStation 4. No, really, it is - and we're not talking about the PS4 remaster. An actual remake of Cloud and co.'s epic journey. All we have right now is a CG trailer, but honestly, that's enough...

E3 2015: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands Delves into the Drug Cartel

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands Delves into the Drug Cartel

Busted

Just when you thought you couldn't get enough open world third-person shooters with games like Tom Clancy's The Division from Ubisoft, the French publisher injected yet another one into its conference right before it ended with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Admittedly, this is quite an interesting premise for the squad-based shooter...

For Honor Brings Massive Battlefields and Medieval Hack and Slash Gameplay to PS4

Stomping ground

Arguably the biggest surprise at Ubisoft's E3 2015 press conference was a gritty medieval-themed PlayStation 4 title named For Honor. The game melds huge battlefields and tons of computer controlled soldiers with multiplayer play, as you pick up big swords, wear massive suits of armour, and smash your foes into oblivion. The...

E3 2015: South Park: The Fractured But Whole Is Swearing Up a Storm on PS4

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Is Swearing Up a Storm on PS4

Pre-orders are available now

Bethesda did a great job kicking off its presser with some gory, gutsy footage of DOOM - but we think that Ubisoft may have taken the cake by pulling out Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The comedic duo took to the stage to announce that last year's South Park: The Stick of Truth will be getting a sequel, which will delve...

E3 2015: Whelp, Dark Souls III Will Be The Last Game in the Series

Whelp, Dark Souls III Will Be The Last Game in the Series

Prepare to cry

After the release of Bloodborne earlier this year - as well as the recently announced Dark Souls III which is set to launch in early 2016 - some have expressed concern that From Software's distinctive brand of mega-difficult game might be releasing too often. However, this fear seems to be unfounded, as the studio has recently...
