E3 2016: Who'd Have Ever Thought NieR Would Get a Sequel That Actually Looks Good?

Who'd Have Ever Thought NieR Would Get a Sequel That Actually Looks Good?

C'mon, be honest

We'll probably get nailed to a wooden cross for this, but the perspective at Push Square Towers is that Scalebound – despite being directed by the legendary Hideki Kamiya – looks like total dross. And yes, before you start bleating in the comments, we'd say the same if it was a PlayStation 4 game. The good news is that...

E3 2016: FIFA 17 Dev Went to BioWare for Help with Footy Sim's New Story Mode

FIFA 17 Dev Went to BioWare for Help with Footy Sim's New Story Mode

Worlds colide

FIFA 17 has its very own story mode - something completely new to the long running series. Separate from the traditional career mode, 'The Journey' will follow wannabe star Alex Hunter, who you'll play as throughout. As Alex, you'll have control both on and off the pitch, as you decide how the narrative plays out through interviews...

E3 2016: Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Gravity Rush 2 Looks Like the Best PS4 Game That Sony Ain't Talking About

Meow

One area we always criticise with Sony is the fact that it doesn't always put its best foot forward. Gravity Rush 2 legitimately looks sensational, and yet it's not doing a great job of getting the title in front of console owners. Fortunately, IGN invited series creator Keiichiro Toyama to its E3 2016 live show, where it's shown a huge slice...

Final Fantasy XV Has an Optional Turn Based Battle Mode

Wait right there

We feel like we've heard about this before, but now that we've seen it in action, it seems to be far more substantial than we had previously given it credit for. During a presentation of Final Fantasy XV at E3 2016, director Hajime Tabata put the title's optional 'Wait' mode through its paces, and it honestly looks like it could...

God of War PS4 Is Not What You Expected, Looks Stunning in Gameplay Demo

The rage of a Spartan never dies

Wow, what an opener that was. Sony started its E3 2016 press conference on the front foot, dealing out a God of War PlayStation 4 gameplay demo, and it's honestly not what we expected. For a start, the property's trademark combat has seemingly been altered to a large degree, with fights now resembling an action...

E3 2016: Final Fantasy XV Looks Really, Really Rough in Awkward New Gameplay Demo

Final Fantasy XV Looks Really, Really Rough in Awkward New Gameplay Demo

Noct good

As predicted, Final Fantasy XV turned up at Microsoft's E3 2016 press conference - but we're not convinced that it was a good idea to come along at all. The brief boss fight that Square Enix brought to the show looked completely unfinished, disastrously awkward, and not at all fun to play. For months now, people have been questioning...

The Last Guardian! Final Fantasy VII! Shenmue III!

Prior to Sony's E3 2015 press conference, the likes of The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Shenmue III were mere fan fiction – but the platform holder made them all a reality again. Sure, all three titles may come with an asterisk attached these days, but if you want your gaming...

Learn Why Shenmue Is Held in Such High Regard

Courage shall determine his fate

Not going to lie: Shenmue III's reveal almost had your humble host in tears last year. It's a game series that's had a profound effect on this author, as illustrated in this soapbox article. But many who missed out on the original – or perhaps were too young to play it – may not understand why Yu Suzuki's...

Has Manhunt Come Dressed to Kill on PS4?

Making a murderer

One of the most controversial games of the PlayStation 2 era slipped a noose around the neck of the PlayStation 4 recently, and we figured that it was worth checking out. Manhunt is the latest title to be spruced up for Sony's new-gen system, with Trophies and 1080p visuals added to the very bloody broth. But is it worth...
