Hitman PS4 Just Got Even More Needlessly Complex

Two versions of the same game announced

At this point, Hitman's model is so convoluted that we're struggling to think of where to begin with this article. For those out of the loop, the already confusingly named Hitman on PlayStation 4 will launch in an 'unfinished' state. However, the term 'unfinished', according to Square Enix, doesn't describe...

Minecraft made afresh

Clones can be pretty darn shameless, but Dragon Quest Builders is not your ordinary rip-off – primarily because it actually looks better than Mojang's $2 billion mega brand, Minecraft.

Game Boy's Final Fantasy Adventure Gets a PS Vita Remake

Oh Mana

Final Fantasy Adventure, a Game Boy title that originally released all the way back in 1991, has a curious history – namely because it's not technically a Final Fantasy game at all and is actually the predecessor to Super Nintendo classic, Secret of Mana.
