Poor man's Splatoon?
Nine years after its appearance on the Wii, de Blob has rolled onto the PlayStation 4. While certainly an unexpected port, it isn’t an unwelcome one. This colourful platformer was a delightfully whimsical adventure nearly a decade ago, with a simple concept that exuded fun and creativity. Pleasingly, this holds true today...
You know what's really cool about opinions? You don't necessarily have to share them with other people. Sadly, this is a fact of life that the internet gets wrong all too often, so it's actually quite refreshing to see THQ Nordic having a laugh with its accolades trailer for ELEX. The open world role-playing game launched last month on...
Oozy ink-‘em-up de Blob will splat the PlayStation 4 on 14th November in North America and 17th November in Europe, publisher THQ Nordic has revealed. The game was a big hit on the Nintendo Wii, and it eventually spawned a sequel on the PlayStation 3. Scarily, the original is now nearing its tenth birthday, but it’s still cracking...
Wow, this one slipped under the radar, didn't it? An ambitious project from the developer behind the rather crap Risen series , ELEX was announced quite a while back, and we honestly forgot that it was out this month. And by this month, we mean tomorrow, the 17th October. Obviously, that means we don't have review code, and we have no...
Fixes crashes, improves loads of stuff
The latest Battle Chasers: Nightwar patch is available to download now on PlayStation 4, and it's bloody huge. We're not talking about the size of it, either -- we're referring to the massive list of changes and improvements that it promises. For those of you who don't know, the role-playing title...
Offroading like it's '08
Baja: Edge of Control was a title that released last generation back in 2008. Nine years later, publisher THQ Nordic and developer 2XL Games have decided to remaster this title and dub it “HD” (because, you know, last generation games weren’t HD already). That being said, lets see how this off-road racer fares for the...
Not a bad deal
THQ Nordic has brought back its Humble Bundle from earlier in the year, meaning that you can get up to 15 PlayStation 4 games for $15, which is a bargain really. Not all of the games are great, but you do get both Darksiders titles, as well as a few PS2 Classics like Red Faction and both Destroy All Humans! instalments. If you’re...
Good to hear
BioMutant, the unique looking action role-playing game that was revealed at Gamescom last month, looked quite promising in its first gameplay footage. However, one aspect that we weren't all that keen on was the narration. We don't mind a bit of commentary here and there, but this was the kind of thing that'd probably drive you mad...
And it looks good
BioMutant has been causing a bit of a stir over the last few days. The weird looking open world role-playing game made its debut at Gamescom 2017 - the German convention that's still ongoing - and now IGN's nabbed 11 whole minutes of gameplay. You can give it a watch above. Obviously this isn't PlayStation 4 footage, but that...
Well this is all happening rather quickly. BioMutant was leaked ahead of its Gamescom 2017 reveal, then we were given a CG teaser trailer yesterday. Said trailer snagged our interest, but it left us eager to actually see the game in action. Thankfully, that time has already come.
No gameplay, sadly
Leaked ahead of its official announcement, BioMutant is an open world role-playing game from ex-Just Cause and Mad Max developers. Featuring a weird main character and promising kung fu action, it's a project that at least sounds interesting. Sadly, we don't have any gameplay to gawk at yet, but publisher THQ Nordic has released...
One of Gamescom 2017’s secrets has already leaked in the form of THQ Nordic’s new – wait for it – post-apocalyptic open world kung-fu action role-playing game. The title’s called Biomutant, and features a weird wombat type animal armed with a bloody Buster Sword, because – well, why the hell not, eh? According to a...
Publisher THQ Nordic has uploaded the opening animation for Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and it's worth a watch. The gorgeous looking role-playing game, which is due to release near the start of October, has a diverse cast of playable heroes, and they all have their part to play in this intro movie. Has any one warrior in particular caught...
What could they be?
THQ Nordic has been doing some great work in the AA game space over the past couple of years, and with the upcoming release of Darksiders III, you'd think it already has its crown jewel that will potentially break into the mainstream. However, the company clearly isn't stopping there, as it's teased two announcements for next...
Last week, we wrote about the reappearance of ELEX, an open world role-playing title that's coming to PlayStation 4 in October. Its cinematic trailer made an interesting case, and now, you can get a glimpse of the game in action thanks to its new gameplay video. We don't like judging titles by their trailers, but the release is looking...
Similarly to the Diablo series, Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is all about loot. Whether you're breaking open pots, opening chests, or buying from merchants, Haemimont Games' latest sees you stuffing your pockets with all the weapons, consumables, and items that you can find, from scythes and swords to destiny cards and demon powers. At...
Hell hath no Fury
It was only announced days ago, but publisher THQ Nordic has teamed up with IGN to drop Darksiders III bombs like they’ve been forged by one of the four horsemen themselves. After this week’s reveal trailer, now 12 minutes of pre-alpha footage have
Fury's Collection is available now
All credit to THQ Nordic: it's played a blinder with the Darksiders III reveal. Recognising that the surprise sequel announcement may generate interest in the series, it's rolled out a fairly low price bundle on the PlayStation Store collating remasters Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II:...
911 is not a joke
Weappy Games' strategy-cum-noir adventure This Is the Police has you inhabit the day-to-day drudgery of retiring police chief Jack Boyd, grinding out his last 180 days on the force and trying to keep things running smoothly for the city of Freeburg's corrupt mayor. Dogged by allegations of corruption and a career full of regret, we...
What you gonna do when they come for you?
Anticipated adventure strategy game This Is the Police will begin its beat on the PlayStation 4 this week, so we dug out our baton and streamed the first hour or so live on our YouTube channel. You can witness all of the action via the archive embedded above.
Who remembers Sine Mora, then? It was billed as a big deal once upon a time, releasing on the PlayStation 3 and Vita with input from Suda51 if our memory is correct. Anyway, it kinda came and went but still has a cult following in some circles, and now THQ Nordic has announced that an extended version will release on the PlayStation 4 this...
Car crash entertainment
Surprisingly enjoyable Stuntman sequel Stuntman: Ignition looks like it's set to hit a jump ramp onto the PlayStation 4, as the game has popped up on European ratings firm PEGI's website. While the game did release on the PlayStation 3, it's likely that this is the PlayStation 2 version
The art of war
It's weird to think that since Darksiders was released in 2010, Vigil Games disbanded, THQ went bankrupt, and Nordic Games acquired the franchise. Not only that, but it has even reincorporated under the name THQ Nordic and overseen remasterings of both games. So while ex-Vigil Games employees are scattered around the place with...
Dark side of the moon
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition may have the worst name this side of Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition, but at least it isn't cutting any corners. Newly named publisher THQ Nordic has confirmed that the remaster will run at 1080p on the standard PlayStation 4 and will be enhanced with 4K support on the PS4 Pro. There's a...
