23rd June 2015 (North America)

A surprisingly big one

The calm after the storm? Those ripples you see in the glass of water before you are not from a nearing T-Rex, but from a tidal wave of software instead.

So, What Is World of Final Fantasy on PS4 and Vita Exactly?

Final Fantasy for a new generation

When it was first unveiled at Sony's E3 2015 press conference, no one was quite sure what to make of the cutesy World of Final Fantasy.

What a week that was

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage.

What's Going on with Gravity Rush 2?

Come, come, kitty, kitty

Gravity Rush is one of this author's favourite new franchises of the past five years.
