    Growing pains

    You know that you’ve got a problem when the protagonist of your spin-off game is more interesting than the hero in your main release.

    Geth a load of this

    Sackboy really is the ultimate cross-marketing opportunity, isn’t he?

    Official comment sniffed out

    Early access and bonus maps

  • News Yakuza's Kazuma Kiryu Is Teeing Off in Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational

    Gangster's paradise

    Kazuma Kiryu’s proficiency with the martial arts may have made him a better fit for mascot mash-up PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale – but the Yakuza protagonist is no stranger to the golf course either. As such, we suppose it makes perfect sense for the former Tojo Clan chairman to join the roster of Hot Shots Golf: World...

    Sitting beside the furnace

    Hearthfire isn’t quite what you’d expect from a piece of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC.

  • News This Is What Happens When Vikings Relax

    Hairy holiday

    Vikings don’t head to the seaside and sip on piña coladas when they want to relax. Instead, they do much the same as they would on a normal day – attack each other.
