Review: Battlefield Hardline (PlayStation 4)

Battlefield Hardline (PlayStation 4)

Battlefield Vice

We all know what police officers are like, don't we? If semi-documentaries like The Wire, CSI, The Shield, and A Touch of Frost are anything to go by, there's barely a person in law enforcement on either side of the pond that isn't addicted to meth and good-hearted hookers. As easy as it is for us to identify with these fictional...

The Force Will Block Star Wars: Battlefront from Launching on Sony's Previous Box

Wookie here

We pondered recently whether the PlayStation 3 was on its last legs, and while it's not over until Kaz Hirai says so, we're starting to see third-party publishers skip the faithful format. Hot on the heels of Dragon Quest Heroes and Dying Light, the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Battlefront is the latest game to gloss over a last-gen...

Battlefield Hardline PS4 Reviews Play Cops and Robbers with Critics

Bailed out

Battlefield Hardline is undoubtedly the big new release of the week, but with reviews held back until launch day, are the press playing good cop or bad cop with this spin-off first-person shooter? Well, the game's certainly not getting panned – though some sites have intelligently held back their scores until they can test the title...

Titanfall 2 Mechs Its Way to PlayStation 4

Sequel will shed Xbox exclusivity

Titanfall 2 is in development, and it will release on the PlayStation 4. At least, that's according to Respawn Entertainment gaffer Vince Zampella, who was speaking with IGN ahead of the BAFTA Game Awards, which are scheduled to take place in London later tonight. The first g

Sadly, There Won't Be Any Dinosaurs in Battlefield Hardline on PS4, PS3

There will be a raptor mask, though

Somehow, rumours started circulating overnight that there'd be something more pre-historic in Battlefield Hardline than its visuals – dinosaurs. However, it would appear that the lethal game of Chinese whispers has not culminated in the Jurassic Park/Police Academy crossover that you've always dreamed of –...

EA Hints at Huge Positive of Bringing Titanfall 2 to PS4

Az-u-were

Colour us surprised: we were pretty confident that the original Titanfall would be at the very least announced for the PlayStation 4 by now. If you go back and listen to the Xbox console exclusivity confirmation, the words used were "for the life of the title" – a wishy-washy statement that didn't seem to preclude a 'Game of the Year'...

EA: Games Are Still Too Hard to Learn

Don't pull that face

A top executive from EA Games has suggested that most video games are still too difficult for the average person to learn. We suspect that this statement is going to go down like a lead balloon, but we reckon that chief creative officer Richard Hilleman, who was speaking at the 2015 DICE Summit, may actually have a point. "The...

You Lot Have Slain Over 2.5 Million Dragons in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Swooping isn't that bad

Dragons are some of the most powerful enemies that you can attempt to slaughter in Dragon Age: Inquisition, but that hasn't stopped players from destroying over 2.5 million of them. The winged beasts are rare in Thedas, with only a handful of fully grown reptiles to find throughout the game, so the fact that so many have...

EA Celebrate PlayStation's 20th Birthday with Free PS4, PS3, and Vita Games for All

Happy birthday to you

If this week's offer of a free classic PSone theme for your PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, or Vita wasn't good enough to celebrate Sony's big 20th, EA is being kind enough to toss some presents your way. To celebrate its support from the very beginning of the PlayStation's legacy, it's giving everyone a free copy of Plants Vs...

Brothers Developer Snags a Ticket to Ride with EA

Freight fever

When does an indie developer stop being indie? We’ve no idea, but businessman Peter Moore seemed pretty stoked about EA Games’ acquisition of ‘indie’ developer Hazelight Studios. This team consists of the core crew behind the brilliant Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and is busy working on a game involving people in trains – or...

Why Is the Developer of Titanfall Fronting a Panel at PlayStation Experience?

Drop a titan on it

Here’s a strange one: Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment will appear as part of a panel at PlayStation Experience this week. The Californian studio has only released one title to date – the aforementioned Xbox and PC exclusive – making its presence at a Sony-centric convention a little strange to say the least...
