    Review Rabi-Ribi

    She's not a bad rabbit, she's just drawn that way

But imagine the fun you could have as a literal bunny girl with kick ass battle powers. Yeah, that’s Rabi-Ribi. Packing one of the strangest plots to have hit the...

    Review White Day: A Labyrinth Named School

    Whispering corridors

    In 2001, a little-known game called White Day: A Labyrinth Named School released to a Korean-only audience, and amongst those who played it, many considered the title to be one of the scariest games of all time. 16 years later, this slice of Korean horror has finally made its way to western shores thanks to an English...

    Review Akiba's Beat

    Just beat it

    If you're a fan of Japan and its wonderful culture then you'll probably be aware of Akihabara, a district in Tokyo filled with all manner of delights that will get any otaku salivating at the thought of it. It's a haven for geeks with plenty of shops filled with anime, manga, collectable cards and figurines, as well as maid cafés for...

  • News Cult Korean Horror White Day Spooks PS4 This September

    School hall scares

    There are no shortage of horror games on the PlayStation 4, but there’s always room for one more as far as we’re concerned. That’s good news for Korean developer ROI Games, then, which is bringing cult horror White Day: A Labyrinth Named School to Sony’s new-gen system this August. “It’s the story of new Yeondoo High...

    Review FlatOut 4: Total Insanity

    Safety car

    It's a miracle that FlatOut 4: Total Insanity exists at all really. The previous instalment in this smashtastic series – 2011's irreparably awful FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction – is widely regarded as one of the worst racing games of all time, sitting just a position ahead of the notoriously appalling Big Rigs: Over the Road...

  • Hands On FlatOut 4 Is Total Insanity on PS4

    Car-nage

    Tail between the legs time: we should really have a FlatOut 4: Total Insanity review live on the site already. Alas, we're not quite ready to publish our verdict just yet so you're going to have to make do with a brief hands on piece and a video. Sorry about that. Anyway, it's pretty good. Unlike its soul-sappingly bad predecessor, World...

    Review Steins;Gate 0

    Do you underSTEIN?

    Imagine if we managed to create a working time machine? How long before the future, past, and present were altered irrevocably – and would it be fun and games or trauma and death? Steins;Gate was a massively acclaimed visual novel developed by 5pb. and Nitroplus back in 2009 telling of humanity's first time-travelling...

    Review Gal*Gun: Double Peace

    Between a rod and a hard place

    The last time we strutted through a school targeting ladies with our love shots, Interpol got involved. In fact, we're not sure whether penning this review is a violation of our parole conditions – we try not to let legal proceedings get in the way of our quest to bring you the best PlayStation coverage available,...

  • Video We've Found PS4's Dumbest Game to Date

    Kiss and swell

    Gal*Gun: Double Peace won't win many awards – but it'll probably be crowned PlayStation 4's dumbest game when the generation is done and dusted. This rails shooter by Inti Creates won't get you on the sex register – but it probably should. A kind of Time Crisis for people who can't keep their trousers on, the idea here is that...

  • News Put Your Hormones on Hold, Gal Gun: Double Peace Is Delayed Two Weeks in the West

    Take it slow

    Put those trousers back on and listen up: underwear riddled rail shooter Gal Gun: Double Peace has been delayed a couple of weeks here in the West. Publisher PQube has stated that the game will now release on the 29th July in Europe and the 2nd August in North America. Not a huge delay by any means, but a bit of a disappointment if...

    Review Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo

    Loeb and behold

    Few studios have supported the PlayStation 4 quite like Milestone. Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo represents the racing specialist's fifth release on the new-gen format, with three more due this year alone. However, despite the prolific nature of the Italian outfit's output, this off-road simulator has clearly been given ample attention...

    Racy rails shooter coming overseas

    Bloody hell, between Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 and now Gal Gun: Double Peace, we could turn Push Square into a softcore site and no one would notice. We'd probably get more traffic to boot. Anyway, niche publisher PQube has announced that it's bringing Inti Creates' aforementioned "hyper-moé" shooter to Europe and...

    Review BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend

    Extended for your pleasure

    With BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend, Arc System Works' much admired 2D fighting series has arrived on the PlayStation 4, bringing its 28 characters to duke it out on Sony's newest console. Is this a good thing? In short, yes, it is. BlazBlue games are crafted with care and attention, and this pays rich dividends for...

The game was already...

    Are you ready for Rebel One on your PlayStation 4? PQube has announced that it will be working with Arc System Works to bring the ostentatiously named BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend to Europe later this year. The game – which will also be available on the PlayStation 3 and Vita – launched in North America last month, and is...

    Review RIDE

    On yer bike

    Milestone knows a thing or two about motorbikes. The industrious Italian developer has been pumping out licensed two-wheeled titles like MotoGP, MXGP, and SBK for years now, and RIDE represents its most recent return to the saddle. Unlike its older endeavours, however, this is an original intellectual property inspired by the likes of...

    There hasn't been much word on cult hit visual novel Steins;Gate since the announcement of its PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita release. For North America and Europe, its release date is still a tentative May 2015. However, eager fans should be happy with the announcement of the El Psy Kongroo special edition, which will be exclusive to...

    Review MXGP: The Official Motocross Game

    Scrubs up fine

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That’s the mentality that MotoGP maker Milestone appears to be adopting with MXGP: The Official Motocross Game following March’s somewhat unspectacular PlayStation 3 outing. Having been on the receiving end of a bit of a critical soiling, the Italian outfit has now opted to port a...

  • News Milestone Scrubs Up MXGP for PS4 Release This Fall

    Ring the alarm

    Flat presentation prevented motocross simulation MXGP from reaching its full potential on the PlayStation 3, but fresh from the excellent next-gen edition of MotoGP 14, Italian outfit Milestone will be hoping that the added power of the PlayStation 4 will help to land its other two-wheeled racer in a podium position. Due out later...

    Review MotoGP 14

    Top Márquez

    Our infallible scientific studies suggest that many MotoGP stars endured multiple bumps on their bonces from a very early age. Asphalt icons such as Valentino Rossi and reigning champion Marc Márquez make average adrenaline junkies look like cucumber sandwich scranning stick-in-the-muds – and that’s before they even climb onto...

    Review MXGP: The Official Motocross Game

    Rev bull

    There’s something strangely appealing about the way in which Italian outfit Milestone constructs a single player campaign. The developer’s previous forays into the World Rally Championship and Moto GP have all lacked polish, but have had a certain je ne sais quoi in spite of their presentational shortcomings. MXGP: The Official...
