Some People Still Can't Get Enough of Chris Redfield's Biceps in Resident Evil 5

Punch that rock really hard

It’s hard to believe, but Resident Evil 5 released to mixed responses over five years ago.

Green eyed monster

Making games is not easy. In addition to the excruciatingly long hours, technical challenges, and budget-based pressures, you also have to deal with idiotic online forum posters tossing obscenities at your title when given the opportunity. For the folks behind Far Cry 4, however, things aren’t all bad, as key members of the team...

Sacred 3 (PlayStation 3)

Nothing is sacred

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, while not what you’d call a big success, still managed to garner quite a following among a certain set of gamers, even in spite of a few rough edges. Those that did end up sinking hour after hour into the action role playing game really appreciated its massive open world, extensive loot system, and huge...

El Chavo Kart (PlayStation 3)

Chilli con carnage

Many game developers have tried to enter the kart racing genre, but all with the exception of Crash Bandicoot have failed to score a podium place next to Super Mario. Efecto Studios is the latest outfit to have a pop with El Chavo Kart – a title based upon the apparently popular Mexican cartoon, El Chavo: The Animated Series. As...

30th July 2014 (Europe)

Big break

Make no mistake: The Last of Us Remastered is the big new addition to the European PlayStation Store this week. Alas, we’re running out of Joel and Ellie flavoured thumbnail images at this point, so we figured that we better rack up a Pure Pool picture instead. Chalk it up to variety. Sorry.

More People Participated in the Destiny Beta Than You Can Possibly Imagine

Intergalactic anticipation

Bungie made it incredibly easy to participate in the Destiny beta, suggesting that it was perhaps as much a marketing tool as it was a server stress test. A single pre-order netted you three codes to share with friends, while the whole thing opened up to everybody towards the end. Still, if you’re asking people to...

Switched Systems? Transfer Your Diablo III Progress from 360 to PS4

Ultimate evil

There’s a bit of a ruthless streak about Sony at the minute. The manufacturer appears to realise that it’s converted ex-Xbox 360 owners to its next-gen machine, and so it’s offering a variety of sweeteners in order to aid that transition. The latest of these is the promise that you’ll be able to bring your progress from Diablo...

Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars (PlayStation Network)

Pay £7.99 for tagline

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Might & Magic: Duel of Champions - Forgotten Wars is some kind of trading card video game, but that’s short-sighted. No, it’s an investment opportunity of a lifetime – a chance to hand out huge amounts of money in return for digital versions of cards that your other half probably...

Review: Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Castle smashers

There are plenty of brutal indies that'll put your dexterity to the test on Sony platforms. The likes of Spelunky and Cloudberry Kingdom represent a somewhat niche, but addictive genre.
