  • Preview New Saints Row Looks Like Fantastic Fun, But It's Also Distinctly Last-Gen

    In with the old

    The new Saints Row has looked better and better every time that it's been shown — and recently we got to see a whole chunk of the sandbox title in action. Volition's latest is still unapologetically Saints Row (and by that we mean Saints Row: The Third), right down to the ridiculous character customisation and mental side...

  • Reaction Sony's Positive PS Plus Reboot Proves the Value of Catalogues

    A lovely library

    Sony took its sweet time revealing the full extent of its PS Plus reboot – and, frankly, with only approximately 150 of All PS Plus Games confirmed, we’re still not getting the complete picture. According to the company, PS Plus Premium subscribers will get access to about 750 games at launch, so it still has plenty more to...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 426

    Blue sky thinking

    We're not sure about where you are, but after what felt like a never-ending winter, the weather is finally improving here.

    What are the best action games on PS5?

  • Talking Point Does Sony Need a Big Summer Showcase?

    Time to shine

    Primarily thanks to E3, the summer months have long been the time for console makers and publishers to push their plans for the future.

    Fit for porpoise

    Much like the real life motorsport, the official Formula One game will undergo a number of changes this year.

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 425

    Believe with all your heart

    We truly are in the doldrums, folks, because this week was a real stinker of nothingness for virtually the entire gaming industry.

  • Poll When Do You Think Final Fantasy 16 Will Release?

    But a Fantasy

    It's been a pretty slow week for news, so let's enter the weekend with a potentially interesting poll: when do you think Final Fantasy XVI will release?

  • Video Please, Sony - We Need These PSVR2 Games

    Dare to dream

    PSVR2 remains in that semi-limbo state where we know it’s coming, but we still don’t know much about it – especially when it comes to software.

  • First Impressions Trails from Zero Is Going to Be a Must-Play for JRPG Fans

    From Zero to hero

    Originally a 2010 PSP title, Trails from Zero was never officially released in the West, despite its incredibly positive reputation amongst hardcore Trails fans.

  • Video Why Prey Is Arkane's Best Game

    Even better than Dishonored?

    Prey (2017) just turned five this week, proving once more that time is a vortex. However, we saw this as a fantastic opportunity to once again remind the masses that Prey is bloody brilliant. This first-person sci-fi horror has never quite been held in the same regard to its Arkane brethren, such as Dishonored, or more...

  • Hands On Sifu's New Difficulty Settings are a Superb Addition

    Something for everyone

    When Sifu first launched back in February, its steep difficulty curve wasn't necessarily criticised, but it was enough to put a lot of potential players off.

  • Hands On Matchpoint: Tennis Championships Could Be the Ace We've Been Waiting For

    We 15-love it so far

    When you really stop and think about it, tennis and video games will forever be tied.

Ever since this author got Anna Kournikova’s Smash Court Tennis on the PS1 (remember her?!), we’ve been huge fans...

  • Interview Good Work, 47 - A Chat with the Voice Actors That Breathe Life into Hitman

    It's good to be back

    Within the pantheon of great gaming partnerships, we’d put genetically engineered assassin Agent 47 and handler Diana Burnwood from Hitman right near the top of the list, perhaps just behind Mario and Luigi and Ratchet and Clank. The pair have overseen dozens upon dozens of deadly missions, in which the industry’s most...

  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Games for May 2022?

    Plus or minus?

    Another month, another PlayStation Plus games announcement. May's selection is bound to divide opinion thanks to FIFA 22 being its headline act. The footballing sim is obviously massively popular — a global best seller year in, year out — and so its inclusion on a service like PS Plus is questionable. You would think that those...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 424

  • Hands On Sniper Elite 5's PS5, PS4 Sandbox Design Has Us Hyped

    Lone ranger

    With open worlds larger than ever, we appreciate the developers designing denser sandbox levels.

Hitman...

To be honest, not a lot will...

  • Poll When Do You Think God of War Ragnarok Will Release?

    The end is nigh

    Earlier this week, God of War (2018) celebrated its fourth anniversary.

  • Hands On eFootball PS5, PS4 Feels Better Than FIFA 22 After Major Update

    But is still a glorified demo

    You’re not going to believe this but eFootball feels better than FIFA 22 after its latest update.

  • First Impressions Bugsnax: The Isle of Bigsnax Serves a Delicious Second Helping on PS5, PS4

    One more bite

    For a game that revolves around yummy snack foods that come to life, Bugsnax is somewhat of an acquired taste. When this unusual adventure game launched in 2020 on both the brand new PlayStation 5 and PS4, many had it down as a meme game to be played ironically, if at all. As it turns out, the game is a highly enjoyable, if quirky,...

  • Movie Review Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Confident Sequel Speeds Past the Original

    Spin to win

    Nobody was expecting much from Sonic's first live-action flick, but against all odds, it's an inoffensive, entertaining family film that captures the heart of the franchise.

  • Video Is Apex Legends PS5 Worth the Wait?

    Time to Respawn

    The Apex Legends next-gen update is available on the PlayStation 5 now.

But now that it is here, how does the next-gen Apex Legends...

  • Reaction Sony's Biggest Problem Is Consumer Relations

    PS Plus revamp reveal yet another example

    Sony announced a rather exciting PS Plus revamp this week, but it’s a reminder that it’s forgotten the art of consumer relations.

    But Sony still has plenty to prove

    There was no way on God’s green earth Sony could convey today’s PS Plus paradigm shift without a hearty helping of criticism.

    Roll the dice

    Despite 2K and Gearbox's best efforts, it does feel like Borderlands spinoff Tiny Tina's Wonderlands has struggled to stand out. The loot-heavy shooter is another game — like Ghostwire: Tokyo — that's having to follow up on absolute juggernaut releases such as Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring. Obviously Wonderlands is going to...
