  • Poll Are You Happy with Your PS Plus Essential Games for April 2024?

    Plus or minus?

    April's PS Plus Essential games have been officially announced, and as per usual, we're looking at three titles spread across PS5 and PS4. At a glance, however, we're tempted to say that this is one of the weaker months in recent memory. We start with Immortals of Aveum. A decent game by almost all accounts, but this magical shooter...

  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Rise of the Ronin?

    On the rise

    Rise of the Ronin has been out for just over a week now, and so we want to know what you think of Team Ninja's open world action RPG.

User impressions have been more lenient overall, but it's still hard to...

  • Review Dragon's Dogma 2 (PS5) - The Apex of RPG Adventuring

    Dragon's godma

    When you think of truly memorable open world games, it's hard not to picture the likes of Elden Ring and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Both are ultimately shooting for different goals, but they share a deep appreciation for discovery. Their worlds aren't defined by map markers; they're designed in ways that push players...
