News AEW: Fight Forever's PS5, PS4 Release Date Brings More Pain to June
Your poor wallet
There are officially too many video games, folks! The N64-era inspired wrestling game AEW: Fight Forever has 29th June in a headlock, adding yet another potentially promising title to a stacked calendar. While there’s likely little crossover in terms of intended audiences, that’s just a few days after Final Fantasy 16! The...
Interview Final Fantasy 16's Devs on Clive's Name, God of War's Leaves, and Fulfilling Fans
We chat for 20 minutes with Naoki Yoshida et al
Earlier this month, we were lucky enough to be invited by Square Enix to play almost four hours of Final Fantasy 16 amid the picturesque backdrop of the English capital’s iconic Tower of London. At the location, presumably selected to reflect the obvious European influences in the upcoming PS5...
News Final Fantasy 16 Will Get a PS5 Demo Which Lasts a Couple of Hours Prior to Launch
Focuses on Clive during his youth
Final Fantasy 16 is very close and seriously impressive, but you’ll be playing it even sooner than you think. Square Enix has confirmed that it’s plotting a full-length demo prior to release, which will last a couple of hours and focus on Clive in his youth. It’s the same segment of the game we played during a...
Preview Final Fantasy 16 Still Seems Like a PS5 Must Have, But a Couple of Niggles Need to Be Addressed

News Warhammer 40k's Blood-Soaked Boomer Shooter Gets Extended Gameplay Trailer
Purge the Heretics
Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, it's fair to say, has our attention. We got a new trailer today that, along with that epic last one, proudly proclaimed the game's Boomer Shooter bonafides, and we can't wait to get our power-armoured mitts on it. In more than seven minutes of God-Emperor-given gameplay, we see
News Legendary Final Fantasy Artist Brings His Distinctive Style to Fortnite on PS5, PS4
Legendary Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano has teamed up with Epic Games for a Fortnight skin we don't think anyone had on their bingo cards.

News Alan Wake's PS5 Sequel May Be Much Closer Than You Think
Soon, so soon
The release of the eagerly anticipated sequel Alan Wake II could be sooner than fans might think, if a potentially careless comment from the game's principal voice actor is anything to go by. On an episode of the Monsters, Magic and Madness podcast (at about the 16:37 mark), Matthew Poretta, who voices the titular character of Alan...
Review Bus Simulator 21: Next Stop (PS5) - Bright and Breezy Sim Is Better Than Ever
Bus Simulator 21: Next Stop is not the refined PS5 showcase you’re going to show to all your friends. Despite benefitting from a couple years of extra iteration, this expanded new-gen port is still scrappy, with buggy AI behaviour and an underlying sense that the game code is almost falling apart behind-the-scenes. That said, few series...

News Impressive and Beautiful Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Made with 'No Compromises' for PS5
No more cross-gen
There has been some criticism of Sony’s decision to continue developing cross-generation games, up until the release of even God of War Ragnarok last year. While the Japanese giant would argue that its approach has allowed more people to enjoy its tentpole titles – especially in the wake of PS5 stock shortages – early...
News Gameplay of Harry Potter Quidditch Game Leaks, And It Looks Promising
Don't be a Snitch
Earlier in the year, a standalone multiplayer game inspired by Harry Potter’s fictional broom-based sport Quidditch was announced, although there was confusion over the scope of the project. With no specific platforms attached – just a vague promise of PC and consoles – many felt that it could be a cheap cash-in designed to...
Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 477
The calm before the storm
Wow, we're days away from the PS Showcase, so there's extra excitement this weekend. Sony may frustrate us with its cloak and daggers approach to the industry these days, but the upshot is that when it finally steps out of its shell, the bombshells are never far away.
