  • News This Is Elden Ring's Character Creator, Apparently

    Probably not the final version

    FromSoftware has always let you go to town with its character creators. From the gorgeous to the ghastly, you've been able to create pretty much whatever your heart desires.

  • News Dying Light 2 Completion Time Further Clarified, 20 Hours to Beat Story

    80 hours for all optional content

    What a kerfuffle this has turned out to be.

  • News UK Sales Charts: GTA 5 Back on the Rise in Quiet Week for PlayStation


    Sometimes, the UK's weekly boxed games chart makes very little movement, and the latest result is one such example.

    Not a troll, a goblin

    Here's a blast from the past. About eight and a half years ago, Sony and Quantic Dream put out a visually stunning tech demo entitled The Dark Sorcerer. This is essentially a short film (embedded above), taking a dark fantasy premise and twisting it with some fourth wall-breaking comedy. While it's not been seen or heard of...

  • PS Store Sales Charts Among Us Dominates Key Christmas Month


    Among Us ruled supreme during PS Store’s key Christmas month, with the social sensation dominating both the PlayStation 5 and PS4 sales charts in December.

    A massive year for PlayStation

    2021 wasn't an amazing year for video games in our humble opinion, but 2022 is set to offer us an embarrassment of riches.

    F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch is a poor name for a pretty darn good game. I started and completed this Metroidvania over the Christmas holidays, and I think it's gone underappreciated. Not a world-beater by any means that'll rival the love Hollow Knight gets, but it's still an impressive first outing from TiGames. Its...
