Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

Marathon sprint

The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

Destiny's On-Disc DLC Locations Aren't Quite as Dastardly as You Might Think

Chop shop?

There's been a lot of noise made about Destiny's DLC locations, some of which can be accessed through glitching in the base game. Although there's not much to see in these environments, many players have expressed anger that they can be found in the first place, suggesting content has been taken from the title so that it can be released...

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires Marches an Army onto PS4 and PS3 Sooner Than You Think

Tactical

It's getting to the point where we can't blame people for saying that there are too many Warriors titles flooding the market. 2014 itself has had an abundance of the things, and now, just when things appeared to be quiet after the release of the superb Samurai Warriors 4, publisher Koei Tecmo has gone ahead and announced that tactically...

Costume Quest 2 Really Will Skip Hallowe'en on PS4, PS3 in Europe

No fun allowed

Y’know, if we worked at Double Fine, we’d probably be spitting our pumpkin pie all over the office carpet right now.

Push Scare: Why Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare DLC Is Perfect for Hallowe'en

Why Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare DLC Is Perfect for Hallowe'en

Dead but not buried

It's no secret that I hate horror. I don't read horror, I don't watch horror, and I certainly don't play horror. I'm not entirely sure why, but I just don't see the appeal in scaring myself stupid. That said, Hallowe'en has always interested me – not because of its modern relation to ghosts and ghouls and gore, but because of...

29th October 2014 (Europe)

Late to the party

As with its North American counterpart, this European PlayStation Store update is absolutely bursting with new releases – but there’s one irritating absentee for this editor. Indeed, where the heck is Costume Quest 2? A game designed around Hallowe’en should arrive before said event, and if your humble host doesn’t get his...

Next-gen only

Dying Light developer Techland has announced that the parkour-'em-up will no longer be shambling onto the PlayStation 3. The studio stated that it wants to focus on making a game which truly encapsulates the 'next-gen feel', and cited the technical limitations of the older hardware as the main reason for the reversal.
