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…

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…

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.…

Train with Rocky Balboa in PSVR’s Creed: Rise to Glory

Boxing is a pretty brilliant fit for PlayStation VR, as the likeable Knockout League already demonstrated. Now it’s the turn of Sprint Vector developer Survios to tackle the fast-paced sport, with its movie spin-off Creed: Rise to Glory. Building upon the physically demanding systems that have defined the studio’s previous titles, this virtual reality release will see you assume the role of Adonis Creed, as you train with the legendary Rocky Balboa and make your name as the king of the ring. But there’s more: exclusive to the PlayStation 4…

Battlefield V Leaves Season Pass and Pay-to-Win in the Trenches

EA just wrapped up Battlefield V’s awful reveal stream, which made last week’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 showcase look like a masterpiece. In truth, we’re not sure why the publisher decided to put this show on at all: it hired out a fancy set purely to put three awkward looking devs on stage for 30 minutes to talk about the new title. Gameplay is being saved until EA Play next month. So what did we learn? Well, as rumoured the game’s set during World War 2, and it’ll…

Review: Dark Souls Remastered (PS4)

We don’t need to remind you that Dark Souls is an excellent game, so we’re not going to sit here and reel off everything you already know about it. We’re just going to cut right to the chase and give you the information you’re looking for. Blight Town is no longer, er, blighted by poor framerate issues. The whole experience now runs at a super smooth 60 frames-per-second no matter what gets thrown at you (both literally and metaphorically). In our 30 or so hours with the remaster, we didn’t notice…

Soapbox: Cyberpunk 2077 Could Quite Easily Dominate E3 2018

It’s been three years since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released, and it still stands as one of the very best games of this generation. The best in my humble opinion — but regular readers will be sick and tired of hearing me say that. I know not everyone feels the same way about Geralt of Rivia’s last hurrah, but I don’t think anyone can deny the impact that the game has had. For me, it’s still so far ahead of the pack — it still blows just about every other modern,…
