Review: Space Hulk: Deathwing (PS4)

The Warhammer 40K universe represents a ripe source of inspiration for video games. With its galaxy spanning conflicts, rammed full of fascinating factions, it’s mind boggling that there’s only been a small number of great games that’ve made good use of its expansive lore. With a steady stream of Warhammer 40K titles coming out in recent years – mainly on smart phones – Space Hulk: Deathwing is the latest to make its way onto PlayStation 4. Based on Games Workshop’s board game of the same name, this new release doesn’t stick…

A vote of confidence for new arcade co-op shmup I Hate Running Backwards

I love Broforce and I’m constantly looking for games like it – fast and fun arcade games I can play with someone else at home. Well, one was released yesterday which fits the bill. The game is I Hate Running backwards, published by Devolver and made by Croatian team Binx Interactive, and it’s available on PC (£11), PS4 and Xbox One (both £12). It’s a top-down, vertically scrolling shoot-’em-up for two players (on the same machine). I Hate Running Backwards’ twist is instead of facing enemies coming from the top…

Skyscraper Trailer #2 Has Some Serious Die Hard Vibes

In the brand-new trailer for Skyscraper, Dwayne Johnson’s Will Sawyer character tells his son, “In order to be brave, you gotta be a little scared… I need you to be brave right now,” which is exactly what the whole moviegoers are going to have to repeat to themselves while watching it in theaters. The roughly 3-minute trailer will make anyone who is afraid of heights squirming in their chairs as they watch Johnson scale a super crane and make an epic jump to the world’s tallest building. That being said,…

Here’s What Yakuza 3 Looks Like Remastered on PS4

Earlier in the week, we learned that the three main last-gen Yakuza games — 3, 4, and 5 — will be getting the remaster treatment on PS4, at least in Japan. While we wait to find out if a Western release is on the cards, SEGA has released a trailer for Yakuza 3 Remastered (or whatever it’s called), as well as a bunch of screenshots. Just as a reminder, these remasters aren’t full-on remakes, as with Yakuza: Kiwami or Kiwami 2, but are upscaled to 1080p, and will run at…

H1Z1 dev battles login issues as PS4 open beta hits 1.5m players

Battle royale game H1Z1 is out now on PlayStation 4 – and it’s been an early hit. The game’s open beta has seen over 1.5 million players, developer Daybreak announced, since it launched just two days ago. That’s an impressive figure (although it’s worth pointing out that H1Z1 is, like rival battle royale game Fortnite, free to download), but it is one that has caused problems for the game. Players have complained about not being able to login or make purchases. Our Ian Higton, who is big into the game…

Sci-Fi FPS Evasion Shoots Up a Storm on PSVR

PSVR Aim Controller support confirmed by Sammy Barker 12 hours ago Sony’s dropping lots of PlayStation VR announcements today, and next on the docket is Evasion – a generically named sci-fi shooter with optional PSVR Aim Controller support from Archiact. While the art leaves a lot to be desired, this certainly looks like a frantic FPS, with class-based co-op adding a tactical element to the shmup-inspired gunfights. Don’t worry if you prefer to play solo, because you’ll have that option as well, across both the Campaign and Horde-esque Survival Mode.…

Nintendo is now offering the option to buy a Switch without a dock in Japan, in a new, reduced-price configuration known as the Switch 2nd Unit Set.

We Happy Few developer responds to ban by Australian Classification Board

Psychedelic survival adventure We Happy Few has been rejected for certification by the Australian Classification Board, preventing its release and effectively banning it from sale in the country. Developer Compulsion Games has now addressed the board’s decision in a new blog post. We Happy Few’s events unfurl in the shadow of a dystopian society, which, as in the seminal 60s TV series The Prisoner, hides behind the quaint facade of a picturesque English village. Wellington Wells’ always-smiling citizens, eager to forget a horrifying shared experience, spend their days high on…
