Va va voom
The fact that it’s been sixteen long years since the last V-Rally is enough to make some of us at Push Square feel positively ancient. Eden Games’ 1997 original was always seen as a friendlier rival to Codemasters’ excellent off-road sim Colin McRae Rally. It only makes sense in 2018 that, upon its return, it should be considered...
Out now in Europe
If you're after a new rally racing game in your life, V-Rally 4 is looking pretty good in its launch trailer, embedded above. It shows off the various event types you'll find in the game as it goes from traditional rally and Rallycross to Extreme-Khana and more. The staggered launch begins today for those in...
Too many cooks in the space kitchen
For a franchise practically overflowing with phenomenal fiction, stand-out characters, and exotic races, it’s utterly bewildering that we get treated to so few gameplay experiences that truly do the Warhammer 40,000 universe any kind of justice. NeocoreGames is the most recent developer to nobly attempt to...
Every now and again, we're reminded that there's a new V-Rally game coming soon, and each time it throws us for a loop. A new V-Rally? In 2018? Anyway, V-Rally 4 is fast approaching its September release, and Bigben Interactive has released a short new trailer, announcing a new mode for the revived racer. It's called Extreme-Khana,...
Investigate your insanity
The Sinking City looks super cool. Created by Sherlock Holmes developer Frogwares, it retains many of the investigation elements of the popular franchise, but it stretches the formula over a Lovecraftian horror open world. Essentially you’ll be travelling Oakmont picking up clues, but it’ll be down to you to put...
That is not dead
It doesn’t reveal a fat lot about Frogwares’ Lovecraftian adventure game, but this cinematic trailer for The Sinking City sure sets the scene strongly. The three minute clip shows the private investigator protagonist slowly succumbing to insanity, as all manner of Cthulhu-esque creatures haunt him. It’s an awesomely unsettling...
Good luck out there
Remember V-Rally 4? It was announced back in March, given a vague September release window, and little has been seen of it since. The revival of the old-school rally racer has been trucking along with small snippets of gameplay, however, such as the hill climb gameplay...
Don't be an octopussy
Frogwares’ open world Lovecraftian love-in The Sinking City has surfaced with a disturbing debut gameplay trailer – but it may not be for the faint hearted. The game takes place in the fictional city of Oakmont in Massachusetts, and you’ll play as a detective who’s gradually going insane. It’s basically the same...
Tennis World Tour is out today, but it’s not finished. Proving yet again that the PlayStation 4’s doomed when it comes to simulations of one of the planet’s most popular sports, developer Breakpoint has just nonchalantly announced that online multiplayer’s been removed from the launch build of the game. Surprise everyone! While the...
You cannot be serious?!
We’re sure it’s a complete coincidence that Bigben Interactive has released this new Tennis World Tour gameplay footage on the same day as AO International Tennis’ worldwide launch. The video shows legends John McEnroe and Andre Agassi going head-to-head, although we’re hoping that the encoding is to blame for the...
Tennis World Tour will hit the court next month, and developer Breakpoint has released a new trailer detailing the title’s career mode. This is your traditional rags-to-riches affair, as you work your way up from the lower end of the world rankings all the way up to number one. You’ll need to manage your schedule, fitness, and perform on the...
You cannot be serious!
Tennis World Tour will score a premium Legends Edition upon release on 22nd May, which will include two additional superstars: Andre Agassi (with his 1995 outfit) and John McEnroe (with his 1990 outfit). In the latter’s case, we’re assuming that means a big fat bandana, which may have just pushed us towards the pre-order...
One email subject we did not expect to receive today: V-Rally is back. The legendary PSone racing series is scheduled to receive a fourth instalment this September on the PlayStation 4, with French developer Kylotonn pairing up with publisher Bigben Interactive to revive the off-road brand. A teaser trailer is embedded above, confirming the...
On the edge of boring
As you can probably tell by its title, TT Isle of Man Racing: Ride on the Edge is a very niche game. Not only is it an entire game dedicated to one sub-genre of motorcycle sport, but it’s actually dedicated to one race; the Isle of Man’s Snaefell Mountain Course is the only official track present, with fictional tracks set...
Hawk-eye can't wait
You’ll be able to celebrate Roland Garros with a round of virtual tennis this year, as Bigben Interactive has announced that Tennis World Tour will target the PlayStation 4’s baseline from 22nd May. That’s days prior to the French Open getting underway, and a couple of months ahead of Wimbledon as well. Perfect timing. The...
New balls, please
AO Tennis is out in Australia, meaning that the PlayStation 4 has finally served up some digital tennis. Early indications are that it isn’t great, however, which is perhaps evidenced by its limited release. The good news is that there’s still Tennis World Tour to look forward to, although that hasn’t exactly dazzled either...
Come out swingin'
Sony casually debuted the first footage of Tennis World Tour at PSX 2017 this weekend, a title which it seems to be taking a lot of interest in. This is alpha footage so it does look pretty rough around the edges, but we can definitely see the Top Spin inspirations in the action, with the animation-heavy movement and the...
Game, set, and match
Honestly, this author was pretty disgruntled when Tennis World Tour failed to materialise at Gamescom 2017 like publisher Bigben had promised. In fact, your humble host may have taken to Twitter to pester the firm for an update. Anyway, the good news is that it’s not cancelled. The bad news is that this trailer is looking...
Worth a Halfpenny
Rugby’s had a turbulent history with video games to say the least, and with publisher Bigben Interactive’s last two attempts (Rugby 15 and Rugby World Cup 2015) getting utterly battered by critics, the French company has taken a couple of years off and come back with Rugby 18 – developed for the first
Top Spin is back! Well, actually it’s not back, but a new studio comprising of 2K Sports veterans has announced a new tennis title: Tennis World Tour. Regular readers will know that this editor is obsessed with tennis games, and has been waiting patiently for some rallying action on the PlayStation 4, so this is big news. Bigger than Destiny...
In 2Dark you play as Smith, a man with a tortured past. On a camping trip many years ago his wife was murdered and his two children kidnapped. In response to these tragic events, he dedicates his life to not only finding his own children, but also saving other kidnapped youngsters. To this end, the game will see you sneak into various areas of...
Admittedly, we haven't watched The Voice much – all we know is that Tom Jones used to be on it and swivelly chairs are involved. The series, which has been going strong in many different countries, has finally decided to capitalise on the fact that there's only one other karaoke game releasing every year. But does it give...
No maybe about it
There are no shortage of racing games on the PlayStation 4, but there are perhaps a lack of spectacular ones. WRC 5 didn't quite hit the dizzying heights of, say, DriveClub, but developer Kylotonn Games – in collaboration with Bigben Interactive – came up with a compelling simcade handling model that deserves revisiting. And...
A study in Sherlock
Barely an hour into Sherlock Holmes' latest case, while helping a young boy named Tom find his missing father, you'll be tailing a shady character as a plucky newsboy, who almost suffocates while climbing up a chimney. Next, as Sherlock, you'll grill a local lord and gather more evidence at Tom's home, but not before taking...
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is an underrated adventure on the PlayStation 4, so we're really looking forward to its successor Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter. However, while this eleven minute gameplay trailer has all of the intrigue and awkward accents of its predecessor, we're starting to worry that publisher...
How the devil are you?
Sherlock Holmes is looking rugged and ruffled in this gameplay trailer for upcoming adventure, The Devil's Daughter. Fresh from the success of Crimes & Punishments, it looks like seasoned developer Frogwares has been given a much bigger budget for its all-new PlayStation 4 adaptation of Baker Street's bolshiest...
Holmes to roast
London's awesome – well, when you don't find yourself stuck on the tube during rush hour standing next to a guy who smells of sour cream Pringles. This is not the exact circumstance that Sherlock Holmes finds himself in, but forthcoming sequel The Devil's Daughter will clearly be taking Baker's Street's best detective to some...
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments proved a very pleasant surprise on the PlayStation 4, so we're practically salivating at the prospect of an imminent return to Baker Street. It's good news, then, that BigBen Interactive has pulled out its magnifying glass and settled upon a 27th May release date for Frogwares' latest murder...
Back to the cesspool
As teased earlier in the week, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter will pull out its magnifying glass and give the PlayStation 4 a thorough examination in Spring 2016. Bigben Interactive announced the eighth entry in Frogwares' popular detective series earlier today, noting that the sequel to Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and...
Nothing like first-hand evidence
Arthur Conan Doyle's famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes looks set to rest his deerstalker on the top of your PlayStation 4 once more, as a new game based upon the character is set to be shown at Paris Games Week later this month. According to JeuxActu, publisher Bigben Interactive will be transporting the...
The racing genre is still poorly represented on the PlayStation 4, with Evolution Studios' hardy DriveClub the only real option on the appliance outside of launch title Need for Speed: Rivals and Milestone's many motorcycle simulations. Polyphony Digital overlord Kazunori Yamauchi doesn't seem in any real hurry to reveal Gran Turismo 7...
Death on two wheels
Motorcycle Club is a racing game on two wheels with a few twists. The most notable addition is the ability to switch between three different bikes on the fly. You'll have access to a superbike, roadster, and custom all at once for each race, and tapping L1 or R1 will allow you to hop between saddles depending on the situation...
Only life's most privileged get the opportunity to test drive a Ferrari, but you can join that elite group next year thanks to Bigben Interactive's upcoming PlayStation 3 racing title, Test Drive: Ferrari
Scheduled for release on March 30th, actual details about the game are scarce. Eurogamer speculates that the project is actually being handled by Need For Speed: Shift developer Slightly Mad..
Locked and loaded for E3
So far we've seen shooters rule the roost on PlayStation Move, with high profile Sony FPS titles like Killzone 3 and Resistance 3 stealing much of the limelight. There's still room for off-shoots of the genre to make names for themselves though, and that's clearly the thinking at accessory manufacturer and publisher Bigben...
Budget games on the way
The name BigBen Interactive might not ring any bells, but it soon will. The European manufacturer of Wii games including Cocoto Magic Circus, Pool Party and Western Heroes, each of which was released with a plastic accessory accompaniment, is set to release its first PlayStation Move games in 2011. The company didn't announce...
