Review: Heavy Rain (PS4)

Heavy Rain (PS4)

Rain dunce

Love it or loathe it, Heavy Rain is an important game. The drizzly depression session certainly didn't invent the idea of interactive drama – developer Quantic Dream itself took a stab at the genre five years prior to its PlayStation 3 debut with the inconsistent Fahrenheit – but it popularised many of the systems that we appreciate...

Plot changed 100 per cent

Naughty Dog re-worked Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's story "100 per cent", according to creative director Neil Druckmann.

Has it really got that bad?

PlayStation Plus members are fed up of pixel art platformers – even though, y'know, you all just voted Broforce in as one of your March freebies.

Well, then – who says Sony doesn't listen to feedback?

It Hasn't Taken Long for Naughty Dog to Release Another Uncharted 4 Trailer

Whoops

In a rather bizarre story earlier today, some Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag concept art managed to pop up in the latest Uncharted 4: A Thief's End trailer. After it was pointed out by a Ubisoft employee, people began to assume that Naughty Dog may have nicked the picture and been caught red handed. As it turns out, that assumption might...

Serious business

Console wars have a bad name.
