Will Fallout 4's Robot Butler Say Your Name?

Hours of fun await

When Bethesda showed Fallout 4 off for the first time at E3 2015, studio lead Todd Howard mentioned that your robot butler, Codsworth, would actually say your character's name if it was in the title's database - he wasn't lying, either.

Is Fallout 4 a Broken Mess on PS4?

Judgement day

Let's not beat around the bush: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim all launched in shameful condition on the PlayStation 3. All three games run on what is essentially the same, creaky old engine, which is one of the main reasons why many of you are understandably sceptical of Fallout 4's technical...

Braving The Evil Within's Season Pass on PS4

Ruvik's cube

Survival horror games are part of a somewhat niche genre that constantly break moulds and, in the process, either make unexpected, monumental strides in innovation or uproarious setbacks by straying too far into other genres. Regardless, many of them have shocked the gaming world, and The Evil Within was no exception last year. Much...
