Surprise attack

With BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma's PlayStation 3 release in North America last month, and the announcement of its impending arrival on the Vita overseas, it's understandable why European fans of this frantic fighting franchise have been worried by the radio silence.

Destiny Composer Marty O'Donnell Fired 'Without Cause' from Bungie

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Moved 278k Units Last Month in US

Snake oil

The core campaign in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes may match the length of the average episode of Game of Thrones, but that’s not stopped publisher Konami from selling 278,000 copies of the jumped-up demo in the United States last month.

MLB 14 The Show (PlayStation 3)

Pinch-hit home run

MLB 14 The Show is this year’s entry in the long running and highly respected baseball series from Sony’s own San Diego studio. Being a sports game, it’s to be expected that it ends up feeling a little like an iterative experience as opposed to an innovative one – but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing good going...

Alduin vs. Bahamut

Round 11

We're now so far into Who Wins Wednesdays that we've had to start using numbers when it comes to typing out the tagline. We've had ten features leading up to today's duel, with the last battle ending up as a win for everyone's favourite alien, Garrus Vakarian.

Looks can be deceiving

As Child of Light's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 release date draws ever nearer, the throwback retro-inspired JRPG continues to throw up little surprises.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3 - A Crooked Mile (PlayStation Network)

Howl at the moon

It may have only been a couple of months, but the wait for Episode 3 in Telltale Games’ fairytale detective-‘em-up The Wolf Among Us has been agonising. The mind boggles at how the award winning studio even manages to juggle development of its various leviathan franchises at the same time, let alone make them impossible to put...

Batman: Arkham Origins' PS3 Expansion Is as Cold as Ice

Revenge is a dish best served cold

What’s cooler than being cool? That’s a question that you should probably pose to DC Comics antagonist Mr. Freeze, but it may be best to wait until he’s in a good mood. While industry attention may be firmly fixated on the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight, developer Warner Bros Montreal hasn’t finished with...

Management, Morpheus, and Minecraft

The calm before the storm

There’s no doubt that we are now deep in the pre-E3 lull. Sony may have hastily announced The Last of Us Remastered this week, but we get the distinct impression that it didn’t want to. As such, we suspect that any Earth shattering stories that hit the headlines over the coming months will be leaks from the Los...
