Review: Ironclad Tactics (PlayStation 4)

Ironclad Tactics (PlayStation 4)

Playing the hand that’s been dealt

Ironclad Tactics tries to mix things up, and that makes it a bit of an oddball. While it's partly a tower defence game, developer Zachtronics has also taken the liberty to throw in some card elements. The end result of this weird mash up is unforgettable, but not without its problems. Set during the American...

The Witcher 3 May Have a Difficulty Setting That Means Death Is Permanent

Life's a witch

During The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's recent livestream, developer CD Projekt Red mentioned an 'insanity' difficulty level that would act as the game's toughest challenge. In no way is the mode finalised, but it does sound like an interesting potential addition. After all, the series is partially known for its often tricky difficulty,...

Oh Dear, The Uncensored Version of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected Is Being Recalled in Australia

Whoops

Who would ever deny the Saints of their fun, eh? Calling it a "serious manufacturing issue", an Australian agency has explained the recall of Saints Row IV: Re-Elected on the PlayStation 4, after it was discovered that the release was "incorrectly classified". As you may know, censorship policies in the land down under can be rather strict,...

Would You Resist a New Resistance Game on PS4?

Hale to the king

Ever since PlayStation 3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man, Insomniac Games' gritty first-person shooter series has been a bit of a money pit for publisher Sony. Fortunately, a quick look at the Japanese giant's financials reveals that it loves losing money, so could a comeback for the alternate history franchise be on the...

PS4 and PS3 Brawler Dragon Ball Xenoverse Will Have 47 Playable Characters

Rock the dragon

Dragon Ball is stuffed full of brilliantly designed and stupidly powerful heroes and villains, so it's always a bit of a disappointment when a licensed release comes up short on the character roster side of things. Fortunately, Dragon Ball Xenoverse's selection doesn't sound too bad. The game's Amazon Japan listing states that it...

Futuristic PS4 Volleyball Sim Gunsport Fires Free in First Gameplay Footage

Shotgun spikers

For a game that's clearly been built with local multiplayer sessions in mind, Gunsport has a supremely complex storyline. We've read the title's latest PlayStation Blog post several times over now, and we still don't really understand what the release is all about. Seriously, director Brandon Sheffield outlines a narrative involving...

Call of the wild

It may seem like a while off yet, but trust us when we say that it won't be long until you're travelling the countryside as the grizzly Geralt of Rivia. Poised to be the PlayStation 4's first truly open world RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is beginning to look like the real deal, featuring branching storylines, brutal combat, and,...

This Dying Light Launch Trailer Will Sell a Lot of Copies

Dead good timing

Warner Bros may live to regret that retail Dying Light delay outside of North America, because this launch trailer is a software seller for sure. We've got a few question marks hanging over the release right now, purely because we haven't been able to get hold of any review code yet (and apparently we're not alone) – but this clip...

Witching business

It's about time we got a better look at upcoming PlayStation 4 role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and so we've been gifted with 15 minutes of rather revealing gameplay.

Can You Relate to Any of These PlayStation Memories?

Gaming gold

If you're reading this, then there's a good chance that you grew up making PlayStation memories. The problem with these, though, is that they can't easily be shared. Fortunately, Sony has teamed up with Studio Output and Found Studio to produce an animated video based upon Tweets posted by gamers all around the globe – including one...

Soul Axiom Peers Through the Peephole to PS4

Soul searcher

Indie games often get a lot of stick for employing dated gameplay mechanics or old-school visual styles, but Wales Interactive's forthcoming PlayStation 4 adventure Soul Axiom looks every inch a BioShock rival. A first-person sci-fi adventure, the title promises to take you on a journey through the "deepest, darkest recesses of your...

The PS4 Exclusives of 2015 - The Order: 1886

History in the making?

Your insatiable appetite for exclusives led to dismay at the tail end of last year. While the first half of 2014 promised plenty between inFAMOUS: Second Son and MLB 14: The Show, there's no denying that Sony's first-party software roster seemed to fizzle out around Christmas, with DriveClub and LittleBigPlanet 3 being the...

UK Sales Charts: Saints Row Misses Out on Four More Years

Voted out

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected & Gat Out of Hell missed out on the presidency spot in this week's UK sales charts, clawing its way into fourth position overall. Grand Theft Auto V was instead sworn into the White House, completing a third term at the summit of the British best sellers list, while Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and FIFA 15...

Er, So You Won't Be Playing Borderlands 3 on PS4 for a While Yet

Gearbox recruiting for sequel

Gearbox gaffer Randy Pitchford told us to keep an eye on today's PAX South 2015 panel for more information on the next Borderlands, but instead of announcing the inevitable follow-up, he merely confirmed that the company's staffing up for the sequel. This is the kind of bad joke that we'd expect to find in the actual...
