12th August 2014 (North America)

Sit back, relax, and play

New titles are being announced thick and fast this week at Gamescom, but that doesn't mean that the games of the future should overshadow the games of now. We have a fantastic offering on the North American PlayStation Store this week, including the colourful Hohokum and Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition. Let's make an...

Assassin's Creed Rogue Looks a Heck of a Lot Like Black Flag

Glitch in the animus

With Assassin's Creed Unity stalking Paris later this year only on next-gen consoles, it's up to Assassin's Creed Rogue to fill in on the PlayStation 3. Other than some sparse gameplay details, we haven't had a good look at the last-gen stab-'em-up yet, but all that's changed thanks to an eight minute walkthrough from publisher...

Surprise! You Can Create Your Own Outrageously Cool Dragon Ball Character in Xenoverse

Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Nobody expects the Dragon Age: Inquisition

EA started its fairly lousy Gamescom conference this morning with a lengthy demo of incoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Lay Down the Law with Battlefield Hardline's First Single Player Footage

Shoot the guns

EA's conference at Gamescom today was a little dry, to the say the least. The perennially unpopular publisher closed out its show with a brand new single player trailer for Battlefield Hardline, which you can view down below.

Grow to Hate Shadow of Mordor's Villains With the Help of its Newest Trailer

You'll pay for this

In a somewhat surprising appearance at Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference, upcoming Tolkien tie-in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor shed a little bit of light on its narrative and its ruthless baddies. It's another short and sweet video regarding the upcoming action title, but we reckon it does just enough to get you interested...

Bungie Details Destiny's Competitive Multiplayer and Clarifies PlayStation Exclusive Content

Bang for your buck

Outside of the alpha and beta, we haven't heard or seen much regarding Destiny's competitive multiplayer offering. Both downloadable sneak peeks only offered one game type — control — so it's about time that we got a better look at the sci-fi shooter's various modes. And this trailer

Odds and ends

The week before a major gaming convention always feels like the calm before the storm, and the past seven days have lived up to that cliché.

What Are Your Hopes and Fears for PS4 and Vita at Gamescom 2014?

Panic presentations

Every convention comes with a combination of excitement and trepidation.

Music Management Sim BigFest Will Also Headline on PS4

Next-gen encore

We thought that PlayStation Vita music management simulation BigFest was taking an extraordinarily long time to develop – but now we know why. Sony XDev Europe has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the title – which sees you run a Glastonbury-esque festival from hiring the bands to placing the porta potties – will...
