Housemarque Confirms Local Co-Op for Alienation the Only Way It Knows How

Together forever

We think that PlayStation 4 exclusive Alienation is out of this world, but one drawback is the lack of local multiplayer at launch. Stephen Tailby mentioned in our review that Housemarque tends to provide stellar post-release support for its games, however, and it hasn't taken long for the Finnish firm to confirm that it'll be add

Dark Souls III 1.04 Patch Makes Some Adjustments

Praise the sun

How did you get on with Dark Souls III this weekend, readers? We prayed to the Orphan of Kos for help besting the Abyss Watchers, and he responded in kind. We're kinda worried we're going to be whisked away by a giant slug to a Cthulhu-esque nightmare realm in return, however. It was probably worth it – we got a Silver Trophy for...

Wasted in the wasteland

Fallout 4's incoming survival mode is sounding more and more like a rather drastic gameplay overhaul as opposed to a new difficulty setting. Currently being beta tested on PC, the new mode makes living in the wasteland a much more realistic and brutal experience, and Bethesda's gone ahead and detailed everything that you...

Fallout 4's Survival Mode Isn't Too Far Off on PS4

Best stock up on InstaMash

Fallout 4's overhauled survival mode was confirmed weeks ago, but it's still yet to scavenge a concrete release date.

Is Destiny About to Come Back with a Bang?

April's update sounds promising
