Saints Row: The Third, Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, and more on offer

E3 2013 Respawn Entertainment Not Ruling Out Titanfall for PS4
Titanfall is definitely Microsoft’s big play at capturing the hardcore gaming audience. While exclusives such as Forza Motorsport 5 and Quantum Break look great, the new first-person shooter from Respawn Entertainment sounds like it’s shaping up to be something special. But despite being exclusive to the Xbox platforms and PC...
For a game named Fuse, the latest title from Insomniac Games does fittingly merge a plethora of ideas to create a satisfactory experience – but we're not sure that such meek praise was on the developer's agenda when it embarked on its first multiplatform project. This is a competent third-person shooter that ticks every box in the...

Furthermore, it will do so...
Feature What Was Your Favourite PS4 Game Reveal at E3 2013?

E3 2013 Need for Speed: Rivals Trailer Braces for Impact
Head on collision
Wouldn’t life be a lot easier if people just stuck to the speed limit? This brand new Need for Speed: Rivals trailer shows a group of ragtag street racing rascals taking on the law – but it’s not entirely clear what their incentive is. We suppose that the upcoming title wouldn’t be particularly fun if you had to abide by...

Rumour Mirror's Edge 2 Retail Listings Sprint into Sight
Got to have Faith
The original Mirror’s Edge was a sequel away from being brilliant. The first-person free-running adventure offered a unique experience in a saturated genre, but suffered from some hokey shooting sections and cheap comic book cut-scenes. It failed to cross publisher EA Games’ sales threshold, and a successor was subsequently...
