Life Is Strange: Episode 1 - Chrysalis (PlayStation 4)

Go f*** yourselfie

Life Is Strange: Episode 1 - Chrysalis marks the latest release from French developer DONTNOD, the studio behind Remember Me. Being an episodic game, it marks a change of pace for the firm, and allows it to join the ranks of Telltale Games, who has essentially defined the model in its current guise. Series like this are extremely...

Square Enix's Secret PS4 Exclusive Ain't What You Were Hoping For

Cave in

Square Enix's troll train chugs along another day, as the company has revealed that Spelunker Z is the PlayStation 4 exclusive that it teased earlier in the week. The free-to-play title, which is based upon the 1983 platformer originally designed by Tim Martin, will release on 19th March. It'll feature online multiplayer for up to six...

Life Is Strange PS4, PS3 Reviews Aren't Out of the Ordinary

Mad Max

Given the success of The Walking Dead, it's a surprise that other developers are only just jumping on the episodic bandwagon. With the output of developer Telltale Games starting to get a teensy bit predictable, though, we're really curious to see French developer DONTNOD's take on the format. We've got a reviewer whizzing through episode...

The Time Has Come to Compare Final Fantasy Type-0 HD on PS4 to the Original PSP Version

You knew this was coming

Where would we be without graphics comparison videos? Er, we're not entirely sure, but we certainly wouldn't be comparing the visual prowess of an upcoming PlayStation 4 release to the original PSP version. Hitting Sony's newest console this year, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD unsurprisingly looks much better than it did on the...

Voice Actor Goofs Up with Kingdom Hearts III's PS4 Release Date

You're taking the Mickey

Voice actors are hired by big video game publishers to open their gobs, so it's no surprise that they struggle to keep them shut outside of the booth. Bill Farmer, who's playing Goofy in Kingdom Hearts III, caused a mild storm on Twitter earlier this week when he 'announced' that the forthcoming PlayStation 4 sequel will...

Final Fantasy XV Returns to the Road in Brand New Trailer

Hair we go again

Proving yet again that the Christmas break is nothing but a pipedream, Square Enix has released a ton of new information about Final Fantasy XV. The hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 role-playing game took centre stage at Jump Festa – a long running convention that’s taking place in Japan this weekend. The video introduces new...

This Dragon Quest Heroes Trailer Is a Real Blast from the Past

Time for Slime

As if the returning faces in this Dragon Quest Heroes trailer weren’t enough, the whole thing reminds us of a PSone-era cut-scene. There’s something about the plain but pretty art style that whisks us back to the early era of polygons – and we mean that in the best possible way, because the title looks great. It’s already...

Pay the Price

If you’re the type of person that’s constantly crying for something a little out of the ordinary, then it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. Life Is Strange, the episodic existential escapade from Remember Me developer Dontnod Entertainment, has been given a release date – and it premieres on 30th January on both the...

You Won't Be Playing Final Fantasy XV for Its Voice Cast

Shudder

One thing that’s always put this author off JRPGs and anime in general is the diabolical dubbing, which is part of the reason why your humble host prefers the cheap skate approach employed by recent Yakuza titles and Freedom Wars. There are probably exceptions, but by and large, this scribe just doesn’t feel like English voice overs work...

Review: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (PlayStation 4)

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (PlayStation 4)

Familiar faces, too many balls

Lara Croft is back, kicking butt across an isometric playground filled with demons and darkness, just like in The Guardian of Light. Fans of the original spin-off title will feel instantly at home exploring The Temple of Osiris, fighting off alligators in terrible wigs and solving “puzzles” that tend to involve...

Yes, Lara Croft Will Likely Still Climb onto PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Exclusive antics

We daresay that that recent Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End demo may have prompted you to forget about poor Lara Croft – after all, the recent Tomb Raider reboot, while thoroughly enjoyable, was very derivative of Nathan Drake’s primary PlayStation 3 escapades. However, the forthcoming Rise of Tomb Raider has been brought back to...

Tomb raider

Well, this is it: your consolation prize. Rise of the Tomb Raider isn’t coming to the PlayStation 4 anytime soon – though we can be quietly confident that it’ll hit Sony's system after the Xbox One release – so you’re going to have to make do with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for the time being. The sequel to Lara...

Final Fantasy VII Is Limit Breaking the PS4 Next Year

The crowd goes wild

Well, we didn't quite see that one coming. PSone classic Final Fantasy VII is heading to the PlayStation 4, although to the disappointment of many, it won't be an unrealistic remake. Instead, publisher Square Enix is bringing the PC version to Sony's latest console, and we've embedded the trailer to prove it. It's planned for a...
