Review: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

It's always tough to review a Ninja Theory game. They breathe a certain spark of life into their projects that practically no one studio can replicate. Yet, they insist on crafting relatively simplistic action sequences that detract from mu...

Review: Dexed

I'm at the point in PlayStation VR ownership where I'm still actively seeking out new games on a regular basis, but I'm also not willing to play just anything because it happens to support the headset. That novelty has long since worn off, ...

Ninja Theory's Dexed hits PlayStation VR next week

I hadn't heard of Dexed until today, just ahead of its PlayStation VR launch on Tuesday, but knowing that it was made by Ninja Theory (Enslaved, Hellblade) and inspired by Panzer Dragoon has me curious. It's a straightforward premise, with...

Ninja Theory's facial tech for Hellblade is pretty rad

Although I trust Ninja Theory in terms of gameplay as far as I can throw them, they know how to make a pretty piece of art, that's for sure. This new developer video explains the process a bit for Hellblade, mostly in terms of how the faci...

Watch raw Hellblade gameplay while it lasts

First hands-on with Ninja Theory's Hellblade

Ninja Theory has felt like a mercenary of late. Enslaved didn't sell as well as it should have (neither did Heavenly Sword), and so the last five years has been spent 1) making a mobile game for EA-owned publisher Chillingo, 2) trying to re...
