News: Suikoden III Stretches Its Legs on PlayStation 3

Suikoden III Stretches Its Legs on PlayStation 3

Geddoe know

Expecting a typically witty write-up? Sorry, office RPG enthusiast Robert Ramsey is away, which means that it's down to this clueless scribe to compose 100 or so words on Suikoden III. The classic PlayStation 2 title originally released in Japan and North America back in 2002, but is receiving the PlayStation 3 re-release treatment...

News: Yakuza 5 Busting Bad Guys on PS3 in Fall 2015

Yakuza 5 Busting Bad Guys on PS3 in Fall 2015

King Kazuma

Yakuza 5 is a massive game that's going to take time to translate, but Sony hasn't forgotten that it promised to bring the release overseas. While the PlayStation 3 may be starting to feel like old news these days, we're still looking forward to continuing Kazuma Kiryu's story – even if we will have to dust off the aging machine...

Round Up: Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

What a week that was

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage. For us, it's time for a break, but for you, the next couple of weeks are going to seem decidedly drab in comparison - perhaps even boring. Still, this year's Los Angeles-based expo proved to be well worth the fuss, granting us five big...

E3 2015: Metal Gear Solid V's Incredible 40 Minute PS4 Gameplay Demo Is an Absolute Must-See

Metal Gear Solid V's Incredible 40 Minute PS4 Gameplay Demo Is an Absolute Must-See

Top dog

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain releases on the 1st September, and this brilliant 40 minute gameplay demo could very well persuade you to part with your cash just over two months from now. The video, which has been uploaded to YouTube by IGN, showcases just about every gameplay mechanic that the open world game has to offer. From...

E3 2015: 20 New Destiny: The Taken King Screenshots Aim to Blow You Away

20 New Destiny: The Taken King Screenshots Aim to Blow You Away

Return of the king?

Destiny fans are getting pretty hyped about upcoming expansion The Taken King. The meaty add-on, which is set to launch on the 15th September, includes whole new areas, an entirely new storyline, and numerous fresh activities. After two relatively disappointing slices of downloadable content in its lifetime so far, we're hoping...

E3 2015: Transformers: Devastation's Vehicle Attacks Are More Than Meets the Eye

Transformers: Devastation's Vehicle Attacks Are More Than Meets the Eye

Autobots, roll out

Back when Transformers: Devastation first leaked, we pondered how the vehicle transformations in the title would work. There were no screenshots showing off any of the playable Autobots in their transformed state, so we wondered whether developer Platinum Games had ripped that part of the experience out. It turns out that it's...

E3 2015: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Looks Crap

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Looks Crap

Epic bail

Many dreams have come true at E3 2015 – but a good Tony Hawk title is a fantasy too far. The first screenshots of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 looked rough, but the debut gameplay footage is even worse. We're not just talking about the graphics either: the level design and physics also look bad. To be fair, the game's still in development,...

News: Sony: Backward Compatibility Is a Requested Feature, But Not Greatly Used

Sony: Backward Compatibility Is  a Requested Feature, But Not Greatly Used

That's one angle

Sony has no plans to add backward compatibility to the PlayStation 4, as it doesn't believe that the feature is particularly greatly used. Speaking with MCV at E3 2015, SCEE gaffer Jim Ryan explained that the Japanese giant has opted to invest its resources into other areas of its console – even though it admits that the Xbox...

News: Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's New Deception Costumes Come Off as You Battle

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's New Deception Costumes Come Off as You Battle

Ripped to bits

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's got a new costume set based on the Deception franchise, and, much like the outfits of those that you destroy with brutal traps and contraptions in the latter series, these fresh costumes also rip, break, and fall apart as you take damage. This isn't the first time that the latest Dead or Alive release...

E3 2015: NA PSN Sale Spotlights the Best of the Los Angeles Show

NA PSN Sale Spotlights the Best of the Los Angeles Show

Some titles 60 per cent off

In the mood for some actual games following this week's E3 2015 goodness? Of course you darn well are. It's probably a good thing that Sony's dropped a new sale on the North American PlayStation Store, then, spotlighting some of the legendary games from the Los Angeles-based show. For example, you'll be able to get Alien...

E3 2015: Godzilla on PS4 Rampages Through E3 With a Brand New Gameplay Trailer

Godzilla on PS4 Rampages Through E3 With a Brand New Gameplay Trailer

King of the monsters

What kind joke would E3 be without PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 smash-'em-up Godzilla storming the Los Angeles event? In the game's newest, suitably bombastic trailer, we see the overgrown lizard and all of his monster pals kick the snot out of each other, wrecking cities as they go. It's arguably the title's best clip...

E3 2015: Persona 5 Gets an English Trailer, and It's Still Slated For a 2015 Western Release

Persona 5 Gets an English Trailer, and It's Still Slated For a 2015 Western Release

Now it's personal

Atlus has begun its Western push of Persona 5 courtesy of the role-playing game's first English trailer, published alongside the title's official English website. Disappointingly, the clip contains the same footage that we've seen before, but it's still well worth watching again for its glorious sense of style. Perhaps the big...

E3 2015: Get a Glimpse of Star Ocean 5 PS4 Gameplay Straight from Square's Presser

Get a Glimpse of Star Ocean 5 PS4 Gameplay Straight from Square's Presser

A drop in the ocean

The oddly named Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness got its first gameplay showing at Square Enix's E3 2015 press conference. The action role-playing game seems a little rough around the edges, but the developer stressed that a very early build of the release was on show. Sporting some nicely crafted environments and...

E3 2015: Mad Max Trailer Guarantees More Insanity with Its Main Antagonist

Mad Max Trailer Guarantees More Insanity with Its Main Antagonist

What a lovely day

Mad Max has already impressed us with its massive open world where you can ride around in a customized car wreaking havoc in utterly crazy vehicular battles. But that's not all, since there's melee-focused combat, RPG elements in regard to upgrading equipment and armor, and all sorts of things you can do in the depraved wasteland...
