  • E3 2018 Control PS4 Gameplay Shows a Strange Supernatural Shooter

    Taking back control

    Appearing on Sony's post-conference livestream, Remedy Entertainment showed off a little more of its new PS4 game, Control. We got to see a pretty cool trailer for the game during Sony's presser, but the above video contains a brief look at gameplay, and it's looking rather interesting indeed. You play as Jesse Faden who, on the...

  • E3 2018 Remedy Pulls Back the Curtain on Control

    Assuming direct control

    Despite Sony stressing they'd be bringing only four games with them to E3 this year, it was generally accepted there'd be something more on display, even if it was just small. Not only did Sony show off a plethora of trailers during what was sort of an intermission for the people there in-person, there were some pretty big...

  • News OlliOlli Dev's New Game Laser League Wants to Be Your New Multiplayer Obsession on PS4

    Roll7 explains all

    Roll7's output so far has consisted of single player, pixel art games, and they're all great fun. The two OlliOlli games in particular are brilliant fun, while Not a Hero's quirky humour and simple shoot-outs make it a compelling curiosity as well. However, the small developer's next game, Laser League, is a big departure. It's a...

    Nein out of ten

    Men-on-a-mission movies set during World War II – such as Guns of the Navarone or Where Eagles Dare – that see a mismatched group of people embarking on near suicidal missions have long been inspiration for video games.

    Review Redout: Lightspeed Edition

    Fast and furious

    The anti-gravity racing genre may not be as popular as it once was, but that doesn’t mean developers aren’t still creating games for the genre. WipEout Omega Collection recently launched on the PlayStation 4, and while it was a fairly impressive collection, the fact that it focused squarely on the past held it back in some...

    Review Last Day of June

    500 Days of June

    Games are often about how many people you can slaughter, and the efficiency with which you can do so. This makes death abstract – a means to an end. The more death you can cause, the more points you’ll get, and the more points you get, the more likely you are to win. Last Day of June isn't about death in the abstract. In...

  • News Promising PS4 Indie Last Day of June Launches the Last Day of August

    Block party

    An action role-playing game set in a sandbox world that features an open crafting system? Where have we heard that one before?

    Review Virginia

    Shoulda stayed home

    It always stings a little when you get your hopes up for a game and it disappoints you upon release. Sure, there are different tiers to this; for instance, it's hard to find a recent game that upset more people at launch than No Man's Sky. But often that initial letdown leads to hyperbole; there are titles that fall short of...

    Review Prominence Poker


    There was a point ten years ago when it felt like the popularity of poker had reached fever pitch. You couldn't turn on late night television without it appearing on more than one channel, and there always seemed to be some bloke down the pub who swore he'd made a serious chunk of change online. This rise in gambling websites left poker...

  • News Promising Supernatural Thriller Virginia Solves a Mystery on PS4 Next Month

    Review Adr1ft

    Space oddity

    In this reviewer's opinion, space disaster is one of the most interesting concepts in entertainment. You have the likes of Gravity, Apollo 18, and The Martian in film, Seveneves in literature, and Alien Isolation in games. Adr1ft, the debut game from developer Three One Zero, now joins the party following its PlayStation 4 release...

  • News Adr1ft Coming to PS4 This Month

    Gravity's a bitch

    Space survival sim Adr1ft is set to launch on PlayStation 4 on 15th July, according to creator Adam Orth.

  • News ADR1FT Drags Out the Obligatory Clair de Lune Trailer

    A space odyssey

    It's a lovely piece of music, but Clair de Lune doesn't half get overused in this industry. ADR1FT, the space-faring sim by threeonezero, is the latest to use the heart-breaking piece, as it splices bits of gameplay with press quotes. This is for the Oculus Rift release, but it's worth remembering that the title – with, we assume,...

    Review Payday 2: Crimewave Edition

    The heist life

    As a law abiding citizen, committing robbery is probably the last thing on your mind. That said, somewhere inside your deepest thoughts – whether you'd admit it or not – you've probably pondered what it would be like to throw off the shackles of society's laws, and turn to a life crime. In Payday 2: Crimewave Edition for the...

    Possessed Payday

    Despite its grisly premise, zombie franchise The Walking Dead has been the flavour of the month for many, many months now.

At any rate, the undead hit has seen all manner of video game adaptations –...

    A new chapter

    Ask anyone who has played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and they'll tell you that it's a fascinating adventure that culminates with an emotional punch to the gut. Future sequels were hardly implied by this standalone indie title, however, but developer Starbreeze Studios has announced that it has handed the property over to publisher...

    Boom headshot

    It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4.
