Shadow of Mordor photo

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

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 my...

Here's the Quantum Break demo from Microsoft's presser

Sony teases the reinvention of horror on PS4

Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2

This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white phosphorus, eh? W...
