    Review Black Mirror

    A Scottish haunting

    Before Charlie Brooker came onto the scene, Black Mirror was more commonly known as a series of point-and-click adventure games released on the PC in the mid-2000s. Its initial three entries were fairly well received, and after a seven year absence, the name is back with a re-imagining of its story, themes, and a mix-up in the...

    Review de Blob

    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...

  • News We Gave ELEX a 4/10, But We'll Admit That Its Accolades Trailer Is Pretty Great


    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...



  • News Donate to Charity and Get 15 PS4 Games for Pocket Change

    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...

  • News BioMutant's Overly Talkative Narrator Can Be Toned Down

    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...




  • News Open World PS4 RPG ELEX Gets a New Gameplay Trailer


    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...

    Review This Is the Police

    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.

  • News Sine Mora EX Braves Bullet Hell on PS4 This Summer


    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...

    Review Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

    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...

  • News Darksiders Will Be Remastered in 4K Resolution on PS4 Pro

    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...
