  • News The Assassin's Creed Valhalla Quests that Most Players Don't Know Exist are Finally Being Fixed

    Vengeance at last

    Did you know that there's a specific type of dynamic quest in Assassin's Creed Valhalla that the vast majority of players will probably never see? They're called 'Avenge' quests, and they're triggered when Eivor comes across the dead body of a fellow Viking out in the open world. These bodies represent other Valhalla players who...

    We'd play that for a dollar

    Bloodborne may yet get a full PlayStation 5 remaster – at least, that’s what we’ve predicted – but who fancies a PS1 demake? Talented indie developer Lilith Walther is working on exactly that, and she’s been sharing footage of the old-school revamp on her Twitter account: Unlike many of these PS1 inspired...

  • Random Watch Someone Build an Awesome See-Through PlayStation 2 Console

    Clear winner

    Remember when console manufacturers had a thing for translucent tech? Whether it was controllers or the consoles themselves, having a sort-of see-through shell allowed you to get a peek under the hood — and it looked cool at the same time. Sony brought this back for PlayStation 4 with the dark blue 500 million edition PS4 Pro, and...

  • News The Hitman 3 Launch Trailer Is the Moodiest Thing You'll See Today

    The end

    The first big game of 2021 is just around the corner in the form of Hitman 3, which means its time for one last media blast before release. The title's launch trailer has just hit the web, and it's a moody one to say the very least. Featuring multiple clips from every location in the game as well as a ton of slow-motion action, IO...

    And just like that, someone's created a mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition that makes the game run at 60 frames-per-second on PS5 (and PS4, kind of). The mod's author, MrWright, has posted a brief rundown of how it works over on YouTube, and it's safe to say that Skyrim has never ran bett

    But chances are slim

    Capcom will be hosting the Resident Evil Showcase later this week, and fans of the horror franchise have only gone and got their knickers in a twist over the prospect of the three classic PlayStation 1 games being ported to modern consoles. This all stems from a countdown over on the franchise's Twitter account, which has begun...

    The Ace Combat series is one that remains fairly niche despite having been around for more than two decades. These arcadey fighter jet action games are beloved by fans for their cheesy stories and fun dogfight gameplay, and the latest iteration is no exception. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown released for PlayStation 4 (with some great...

    A bad case of lockjaw

    Bloody hell, it looks like the latest update for Assassin's Creed Valhalla — patch 1.011 — has introduced a rather annoying bug. The aforementioned update focusses on fixes for a huge number of (relatively minor) issues, but somehow, it's also managed to break the game's facial animation system. It's never easy, is it? The...

  • News Sony Removed All the PS5 Target Dates from CES 2021 Trailer

    Whoops

    While it’s been a dismal start to the year for PlayStation news, we at least had a Sony sizzle trailer from CES 2021 to exhaust our collective editorial effort on. In it, the platform holder included some small print which included target dates for a ton of titles, including Pragmata and Kena: Bridge of Spirits. While we didn’t expect...

    Look, I don't want to be a downer, but 2021 is going to be a strange year for video games. Not only is it the first full year of a new console generation — which almost always results in a fractured release schedule — it's the year where we're going to see the full impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

    "You are incorrigible"

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is finally back after years removed from digital shelves. The 2D beat-'em-up translates the story of the graphic novels and movie well, with each stage culminating with a boss fight against one of Ramona's evil exes. It's a highly entertaining title, but with no real changes in this new...

    Let’s not beat around the bush: it’s been a dismally slow beginning to 2021 here in the PlayStation-sphere. It feels like the industry is still in its seasonal slumber, and it could be argued that Sony has been more silent than most. Still, it’s a good time to dig in to some older titles and catch up on your backlog. Here’s what...
