Hearing Yoku's Island Express described paints an interesting picture. It sounds like a weird game. A really weird game. Just listen to reviewer John Cal McCormick desribe the title: " Yoku's Island Express is a 2D, open world, Metroidvania, pinball game starring a dung beetle postman dragged into a battle for the fate of...
A Rare treat?
The employees over at Playtonic have been through a lot to say the least, many of them coming from backgrounds at the ever-celebrated developer Rare that was responsible for such timeless classics as Donkey Kong Country, GoldenEye 007, and Donkey Kong 64 to name a few. So there's a pedigree to these people to say the least, but have...
Who remembers the casino stage from Sonic Adventure, then? Y'know the one: there's a NiGHTS into Dreams pinball table among other awful minigames.

This brand new Gamescom 2016 video shows off some of the environments you can expect to explore, with the...
Will release early next year
This looks good! We must admit that we've missed Nintendo 64-era platformers; the recent Ratchet & Clank is amazing, but it scratches a different kind of itch. In fact, the last real collectathon-esque adventure that we can remember on a PlayStation platform is Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and even that didn't really...
Team 17 recently lunged at t he PlayStation Blog to announce that The Escapists: The Walking Dead is set to release on the PlayStation 4 on 16th February in North America and Europe.
