News PSVR2 Launch Game What the Bat Now Playable in Stationary Standing Mode
Roomscale requirement eliminated
We had quite a bit of fun with What the Bat, a silly PSVR2 launch title that's well worth a go. The biggest criticism we had of the game is that it would only let you play in Roomscale mode. Roomscale — which allows you to walk around in a defined space — requires at least two square metres of room, but the...
News UK Sales Charts: Hogwarts Legacy Immovable While Wo Long Falls 25 Places
It really does seem like nothing will topple Hogwarts Legacy for the time being.

While some big new release will likely come along to kill its combo, we imagine...

Preview Dead Island 2 Makes Up for Lost Time with Fun
Almost 3,652 Days Later
Pretty much no game ever is worth waiting almost 10 years for, but when Dead Island 2 launches on PS5 and PS4 next month, it'll at least deliver on the comedic fun its reveal trailer teased all the way back at E3 2014.

Review Mato Anomalies (PS5) - Surreal Turn-Based RPG Falls Flat
Neo-future Shanghai is about to explode
Mato Anomalies is a hodgepodge of ideas and motifs that works, for the most part, but suffers from trying to do too much with too little. It's aspirational, but the experience as a whole suffers from poor pacing and repetition, and comes off feeling like just another mediocre JRPG as a result, despite some...

Mini Review DC's Justice League: Cosmic Chaos (PS5) - All-Ages Brawler Is Surprisingly Good Fun
Justice for all
With absolutely no word on this game ahead of its release, you'd be forgiven for being a bit wary of DC's Justice League: Cosmic Chaos — a sandbox action title aimed squarely at an all-ages audience.

Mini Review Pistol Whip (PSVR2) - Still One of the Best VR Games You Can Play
Upon its PSVR launch, we found Pistol Whip to be a sublime experience, brilliantly blending rail shooter and rhythm mechanics. How does the upgraded version fare? Well, even better.

News Gran Turismo Comparison Video Shows Huge Leap in Quality from PSVR to PSVR2
A new generation
We've been banging on about how much better PSVR2 is compared to its predecessor, but it's videos like the one above (from ElAnalistaDeBits) that really show the difference.

Bring your own sick bags
The free-to-play flight sim War Thunder launched on PS4 just days after its launch, and developer Gaijin Entertainment has been supporting it ever since.

Mini Review Rez Infinite (PSVR2) - PSVR Classic Remains a Must-Play on PSVR2
To Infinite and beyond
Rez Infinite was a transcendent experience on PSVR.
