Round Up: Overwatch PS4 Reviews Are Ridiculously Positive

Overwatch PS4 Reviews Are Ridiculously Positive

Surprise, surprise

The nature of Overwatch means that most critics are only really just getting stuck into the final game, and that includes ourselves. However, a handful of publications already feel like they've seen enough of Blizzard's latest to review it – and, unsurprisingly, the early signs are positive. In fact, they're so good that the...

Review: Downwell (PS4)

Downwell (PS4)

My feet are killing you

Well, well, well – if game juice were a real beverage, then Downwell would be the Um Bongo of the fruit flavoured sugar water world. This descend-'em-up by Japanese indie Moppin sees you – and we're quoting the official website here – assume the role of a "young man with gun-boots". The gelatinous protagonist looks...

Store Update: 24th May 2016 (North America)

24th May 2016 (North America)

Gin blossoms

The biggest new addition to the North American PlayStation Store this week? It's not Overwatch, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, or Downwell – it's the addition of Hey Jealousy to the Rock Band 4 store. Love that song. PS4 Games: Crazy Strike Bowling EX (Out 5/25) $12.99 Downwell (Cross Buy) $4.99 Dungeons...

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Runs at 30FPS on PS4, Lasts Around 3 Hours

Cow-a-bomba

Heroes in a half-shell? More like heroes at half the framerate, huh? Digital Foundry has released some hands-on impressions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan – and they're not particularly positive. We've been told that review code isn't quite ready to go yet, so this is the best that you're getting for now. So,...

Rock Out to The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine's Brilliant But Gory Launch Trailer

A messy business

Presumably our last look at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Blood and Wine before it launches at the end of the month, the expansion's launch trailer is bound to get the red stuff pumping. The clip's short but sweet, offering ominous narration and a look at some of the add-on's grizzly new foes. Naturally, vampires are all over the...

Your Voice Is Your Weapon in There Came an Echo on PS4

Speak up

Voice control's a concept that's always intrigued us, but even with the rise and fall of the Kinect, it's failed to really catch on in a meaningful way. Maybe upcoming PlayStation 4 console exclusive There Came an Echo will be the title to change all of that, as your larynx will become your biggest asset in Iridium Studios' ambitious...

Sadly, we don't have a review for you to read jus yet, but we do have the title's launch trailer, which is packed with gameplay.

24th May 2016 (Europe)

Be a hero

It's not the biggest European PlayStation Store update ever this time, but there are still some big names vying for your attention. Highlights include Overwatch, the hotly anticipated hero shooter from Blizzard, as well as Downwell and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. Shall we get down to business? PS4 Games:...

News: Yes, Overwatch Has Microtransactions

Yes, Overwatch Has Microtransactions

But they're not a big deal

We jumped on our laptop last night to try and track down some potential news, but our plans were thwarted by Blizzard's latest. Having just released, Overwatch utterly dominated our news feeds - we knew it was going to be big, but we're not sure anyone saw it being this popular. However, now that the shooter's out in...

Uncharted 4's Focus Testing Didn't Always Go Smoothly

One individual had to be ejected

By and large, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has prompted a pretty damn positive response – but not everyone is in love with the PlayStation 4 exclusive. But while criticisms of its pacing and platforming may be more than fair, comments about the gender of some of its characters are less reasonable. However, that's...

News: Bethesda Actively Working on Improvements for Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Framerate

Bethesda Actively Working on Improvements for Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Framerate

Fog of war

Our review of Fallout 4: Far Harbor went live this week, heavily criticising the add-on's performance on the PlayStation 4. Many argued that we should have given the expansive expansion a pass considering the quality of the content contained within, but we believe that critical framerate issues such as those encountered in this instance...
