Review: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PlayStation 4)

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (PlayStation 4)

Bat to basics

The LEGO series has been on a roll lately, with multiple high scoring titles over the past 12 months or so. The question is: does LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham have what it takes to topple the others – or should it have simply stayed in the shadows? Contrary to LEGO game tradition, the story in this edition is fairly forgettable...

Silky smooth undead sparring

Dying Light, the open world zombie sim coming to the PlayStation 4 next year, will be rendered in 1080p and will run at 30 frames-per-second, developer Techland has recently announced. “1080p and 30FPS is what we have right now, it is what is constant, and what we’re sure that we can deliver in the final product, but...

Batman: Arkham Knight's PS4 Exclusive Scarecrow Pack Will Make You Afraid of the Dark

Dream cleaver

The psychological Scarecrow missions were one of the best aspects of Batman: Arkham Asylum, so it’s exciting to learn that they’ll be making a comeback in Batman: Arkham Knight – exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

Dying Light's New Story Trailer Is Brash, Brooding, and Beautiful

Heart of darkness

If the trailer Techland revealed for Dying Light at The Game Awards today teaches us anything, it's that the game is attempting to tell a much more mature story. Indeed, the clip begins with a hifalutin quote from famed philosopher and playwright Albert Camus, who would undoubtedly turn in his grave if he knew that his work was bei

Arkham believe it

Batman: Arkham Knight has been hiding out in Wayne Towers for a little longer than we would have liked of late, so it’s nice to see the PlayStation 4 superhero sequel score over three minutes of brand new gameplay footage. This is the first of three clips, with the final trailer to be shown during Sony’s keynote at its...

The freewheelin' mob killing

Dying Light finds itself in an odd position. With its last-gen version recently cancelled, and developer Techland touting a renewed focus on fluidity and polish, the parkour-‘em-up’s future feels slightly unclear. We recently went hands on with the title at PAX Australia, and – after being ushered

By now, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has won over the hearts and minds of many a player, so we suppose that it's the perfect time to reveal the title's latest slice of downloadable content, Lord of the Hunt.

Next-gen only

Dying Light developer Techland has announced that the parkour-'em-up will no longer be shambling onto the PlayStation 3. The studio stated that it wants to focus on making a game which truly encapsulates the 'next-gen feel', and cited the technical limitations of the older hardware as the main reason for the reversal. "Much of this...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (PlayStation 4)

That’s what we’re Tolkien about

It’s natural to be sceptical about licensed video games, and everyone has the right to feel this way about them, especially when a blockbuster-sized one comes around with a burden of expectations and hype to live up to, despite having a broad ancestry of mediocre releases. Of course, we’re referring to...

Looking sharp

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is like the little engine that could. While we were certainly excited for the title, its extremely positive reviews have sealed it as one of the must-have games in the already packed month of October. And in order to remind everyone of its existence, developer Monolith Productions has released a nifty new...

Precious

Licensed games are, by and large, atrocious — especially when they're related to J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy franchise Lord of the Rings. That doesn't appear to be the case with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, however, as the tasty tie-in has proved more Gandalf than Gollum. We haven't quite completed our tour through the fictional realm...

Zombie Apocalypse Sim Dying Light Lumbers onto PS4 and PS3 in January

Brainsss

In theory, Dying Light should be a fantastic game. It takes endless zombie hordes and combines them with Mirror's Edge-esque parkour mechanics. However, the game is being developed by Techland – the studio behind the thoroughly ordinary Dead Island series – so we're reserving our judgement for the time being. At any rate, the open...
