A Sacred 3 developer apologizes for the game

Sacred 3 wasn't a very well received game; I felt it was an average and uninspired hack-'n'-slash game with some terrible attempts at humor. Comments on my review either sided on "hey, it's not too bad in co-op," to "this is ...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 declares 'the pitch is ours' in November

I'll be honest, I haven't played a Pro Evolution Soccer game since the PlayStation 2 days but after the series lagged behind EA's FIFA juggernaut for the last few years, I'm keen to try the series again on a current-gen platf...

Phil Spencer wants the Xbox One to 'win' this generation's console war

The idea of the console war -- that the big console makers are locked in this all-or-nothing struggle for hearts and minds -- has gotten sillier as I've gotten older. Still, Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer has told Game Informe...

Hideo Kojima not keen on remaking his previous games

Considering most of the Metal Gear Solid games have been re-released in various fashions over the years, it's surprising that Hideo Kojima isn't too keen on remaking his older games. When asked at Konami's Metal Gear Solid V ...

This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word 'social' too much

Okay, maybe the snarky headline was a bit mean but the devs behind Forza Horizon 2 are really making sure that you know that the game is social and connected. Aside from those buzzwords, what does that actually mean in terms...

PS4 update will let friends join games they don't own

Included in Sony's big fall update will be the ability to join in with your friends' gaming experience, even if you don't own the game itself. Share Play is being described as a "virtual couch" and is online co-op multiplayer...

Rayman creator Michel Ancel unveils WiLD, a caveman Monster Hunter

Folk have been wondering what Michel Ancel's new project is and today we got our answer, WiLD. We saw a lovely looking trailer with lush forest, verdant grasslands and a pair of hunters trying to live off the land.  Anc...

I'm not the first to say this but Driveclub looks gorgeous

The last racing game to really hook me was Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit thanks, in no small measure, to the Autolog. Racing against friends was compulsive and really fun, so if Driveclub can do the same but let me race with m...

Shadow of Mordor looks good but is it Lord of the Rings?

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has gotten a lot of people excited because of its seemingly great combat and interesting reputation system but is it me, or does it just look like a generic dark fantasy game? I'll be honest, m...

Hellblade is the new game from Ninja Theory

Yay! A new game from Ninja Theory that's been straddled with one of the most unimaginative names I can remember. Hellblade? Sure, there's not been a game called that already? No release date so far but it will be a console exclusive on PS4.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter has me intrigued

I still don't know a lot about The Vanishing of Ethan Carter apart from some beautiful screenshots and an intriguing name. Thankfully this gamescom trailer from Sony's press conference didn't give a lot away; is it a supernatural murder mystery game? Sure, sign me up for some that.

LittleBigPlanet 3 gets a new gamescom trailer

LittleBigPlanet is coming back to a Sony console, with LittleBigPlanet 3 coming to PS4 on November 18. Sackboy is back and he's brought some new friends with him -- Oddsock, Swoop, and Toggle -- which will hopefully mean we'll see unique characters used in co-op games, instead of lots of Sackboys (cute as they are). Check out the new trailer above.

Origin is offering 4K-ready PCs for less than $4K

True story time, kids: On Friday, there was a power outage in my apartment complex and when it was restored a few hours later, my PC refused to boot. I'm hoping it's just the PSU that's blown but my suspicions are that my mot...

Here's a look at what's happening at gamescom

We've already gotten the news from Activision's Call of Duty event earlier today but there's plenty of big things happening at gamescom this week. Here's an idea of when you're going to hear all the news from Microsoft, Sony,...

Hotline Miami is bludgeoning its way onto PS4

I know one of the ways I'm going to fill the gap between now and the release of Hotline Miami 2 later this year is.... by playing more Hotline Miami. Especially now as Devolver Digital is releasing the original Hotline Miami...

Activision: Pre-orders are declining, Call of Duty 'not immune'

Pre-orders seem like they're part and parcel of videogame culture -- retailers want your money as soon as possible and publishers like to gauge how many people want a particular game. However, Activision Publishing president ...
