Reaction: Did Xbox Make Its Gamescom 2015 Presser Pay?

Did Xbox Make Its Gamescom 2015 Presser Pay?

Was the Redmond firm able to capitalise on Sony's no-show?

Sony's got the biggest presence on the Gamescom 2015 showfloor, but unlike in previous years it's not holding a press conference. We already knew this, of course, as the company announced that it would be skipping the show all the way back in May. This is because, according to the...

Gamescom 2015: 10 Years Later and The 'Story Begins' with Final Fantasy XV's Dawn Trailer

10 Years Later and The 'Story Begins' with Final Fantasy XV's Dawn Trailer

Shed a tear

We're not sure what to make of Final Fantasy XV's Gamescom 2015 trailer. On the one hand, yes, it is actually a new look at the game. On the other, it doesn't really show much at all. Featuring a young Noctis and his regretful father, it's a pretty emotional clip, but it's hard not to feel like we need something more at this point...

Gamescom 2015: Assassin's Creed Syndicate Enjoys an English Frye Up

Assassin's Creed Syndicate Enjoys an English Frye Up

London's calling

There are no eggs and bacon in this Assassin's Creed Syndicate trailer – just protagonists Jacob and Evie Frye. A mood piece released right at the start of Gamescom 2015, this is Ubisoft's trailer making team at its best; it doesn't tell us a whole lot new about the game, but it sure managed to get us hyped for this holiday's trip...

Attack on Titan Will Eat You Alive on PS4, PS3, and Vita in 2016

Mmmm, crunchy

Well, it's happening: Attack on Titan is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita in 2016, Koei Tecmo has confirmed. There are currently no details on how the game plays, but we do know that it's being developed by Omega Force - the studio behind the Warriors games. It's not like it's got much else going on, right? In any...

Gamescom 2015: FIFA 16 Is All About the Banter

FIFA 16 Is All About the Banter

Different style of Pele

Sports games: the bane of most EA press conferences. FIFA 16 has always looked out of place at E3 – everyone remembers the infamous Pele interview – but in Cologne it was at home, showing off some new features and dispelling all of the "just another roster update" rumours. The new headline feature is FUT Draft, shown...

Gamescom 2015: Pre-Order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Get Your Grass Effect On

Pre-Order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 to Get Your Grass Effect On

Crazy Dave is BioWare's biggest fan

It's not easy to get people to pay attention to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – after all, the release looks pretty weedy on stage next to Mirror's Edge Catalyst and Star Wars: Battlefront. That said, EA has attempted to pique our interest by announcing some Mass Effect themed content – aptly renamed,...

Gamescom 2015: Unravel Three Minutes of EA's Cute PS4 Puzzle Platformer

Unravel Three Minutes of EA's Cute PS4 Puzzle Platformer

Spin a Yarny

Unravel, the upcoming puzzle platformer from Swedish studio Coldwood, continues to look unbearably adorable. A brand new demo shown during EA's big Gamescom 2015 presser showed protagonist Yarny attempting to navigate a borderline photorealistic beach environment. The rising tide makes things difficult for our fabric friend, but by...

Gamescom 2015: Metal Gear Solid V's New Gameplay Trailer Is Bloody Good

Metal Gear Solid V's New Gameplay Trailer Is Bloody Good

Heaven or Hell

We'd be lying if we said that the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hype wasn't pumping through our veins right now. With the game releasing in just under a month, it's perhaps time to jump aboard the train and ride it all the way to the station - a station probably covered in blood and the terrors of war. Needless to say, the...

Run Away with Fresh Mirror's Edge Catalyst PS4 Footage

Faith no more

Mirror's Edge Catalyst was treated to a little more attention during EA's big Gamescom 2015 press conference this morning than it got at E3 2015, with a full gameplay demo showing various aspects from the February free running foray. In it, we saw protagonist Faith infiltrate a skyscraper, irritate an Andrew Wilson look-a-like, and leg...

Destiny's Rousing New Trailer Celebrates Badass Guardians

Here's to you

Following the good news that Destiny is ditching those bloody light levels, we reckon that there's cause for celebration. Thankfully, Bungie's released a new trailer that's all about you, the Guardians, and it's pretty entertaining.

Gamescom 2015: Star Wars: Battlefront Brings the Dogfight of Your Dreams to PS4

Star Wars: Battlefront Brings the Dogfight of Your Dreams to PS4

Flyin' high

As teased earlier in the week, EA has announced Star Wars: Battlefront's flashy Fighter Squadron mode – a dogfighting option which will see you piloting iconic aircrafts such as X-Wings, TIE-Fighters, and, amazingly, the Millennium Falcon online. It's worth stressing that these aren't space battles – they'll take place above the...

Some Massive Gameplay Changes Are Coming to Destiny

Bungie's ditching light levels

Listen up, Guardians, because this is big news. As we're sure you're all aware by now, Destiny's third and biggest expansion, The Taken King, launches next month. Its arrival takes the level cap to 40, which no doubt has some of you excited, but things perhaps aren't as they seem. According to Game Informer, the...

Watch EA's Gamescom 2015 Press Conference Right Here

Time for take off

You've All Spent Far Too Much Time Playing Destiny, Some Would Argue

Activision releases crazy stats

2 billion hours. 2 billion hours. That's how long you lot have collectively played Destiny for, according to Activision. The mega-publisher revealed the frankly shocking figure along with its most recent financial report, and we're still trying to wrap our heads around it. Apparently, that means that on average,...

Store Update: 4th August 2015 (North America)

4th August 2015 (North America)

Submerge yourself in the PlayStation Store

As in Europe, this week's North American PlayStation Store update is a little on the light side – although the likes of Submerged and Galak-Z should hold your attention until some of the heavier hitters arrive a little later in the month. There's also the continuation of Sony's scorching summer sale, so...

Gamescom 2015: Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Screens Are Oscar Mike

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Screens Are Oscar Mike

Ooorah

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 may have had a pretty muted lead up to release, but that won't stop it from ultimately being one of the biggest games of the year. And at Gamescom 2015 this week, Activision is attempting to inject a little extra enthusiasm for the first-person shooter – starting with a brand new batch of single player and...

Review: King's Quest - Chapter I: A Knight to Remember (PS4)

King's Quest - Chapter I: A Knight to Remember (PS4)

A knight to consider

Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, Sierra's wonderfully strange point-and-click King's Quest franchise is finally resurrected with a new, episodic tale that is set to span six chapters in total – the first of which being the rather cunningly titled A Knight to Remember. The story begins with Graham, the king of Daventry – the...

News: Destiny Says Goodbye Dinklebot as Nolan North Replaces Game of Thrones Actor

Destiny Says Goodbye Dinklebot as Nolan North Replaces Game of Thrones Actor

At least he won't be as crap crap crap

With such memorable lines as "who's she talking to?" and "where's his Ghost?" all delivered in the most monotone way imaginable, Destiny's Ghost companion, voiced by Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage, somehow didn't make a good enough impression to feature in the shooter's upcoming expansion, The Taken...
