  • The Order: 1886 Preview: This could be the reason to own a PS4

    Last week, I went behind-closed-doors for a sneak peek at The Order: 1886, one of PlayStation 4's most anticipated--and most mysterious--exclusives. Indeed, before Ready at Dawn walked me through a roughly 15-minute section of live gameplay, I had little idea what The Order actually was, let alone w...

  • inFAMOUS: Second Son Preview: Choices and changes that matter

    Longtime fans of inFAMOUS know what scary change feels like.

In mo...

  • Danganronpa is intense, hilarious, and could be PS Vita's next niche hit

    To find the very best PS Vita games, you have to look beyond conventional genres and blockbuster names.

  • Hands-on with Tiny Brains and War Thunder on PS4

    At a PS4 review event today, I was beset with a myriad of things to do and see. Chief among my options was inFAMOUS: Second Son (check out my hands-on impressions), but in true new-Sony fashion, a diverse array of games from independent developers were on display, as well. With only so much time to ...

  • Tearaway hands-on preview

    As the creator behind the critically-acclaimed LittleBigPlanet franchise, Media Molecule’s pedigree certainly speaks for itself.

  • Virtual reality on PS4? CCP's EVE: Valkyrie is a breathtaking sign of things to come

    I'm not likely to forget my first time using Oculus Rift. The Oculus VR company's virtual reality headset is worth every bit of hype I had absorbed in the last several months, but written impressions and video demonstrations alike didn't prepare me for the wonderment I felt in the cockpit of a fight...

  • War Thunder hands-on: aerial combat never looked so good

    At the recent EuroGamer Expo, I had a chance to go hands-on with War Thunder, a Free-to-Play MMO flight combat simulator which is currently in the open beta on PC, but will be a free download title for the PlayStation 4 launch.

  • Beyond: Two Souls preview - four hours with a serious contender for Game Of The Year

    Note: This hands-on preview is based on four hours gameplay with PS3 preview debug code provided by Sony. Spoiler Warning - There may be some mild spoilers in this preview! I didn’t really like Heavy Rain, I didn’t even complete it. I played Quantic Dream’s ‘interactive mov...

  • Killzone Mercenary Preview: The console-quality Vita shooter you've been waiting for

    Killzone Mercenary isn't just a worthy successor to the Killzone name. In some ways, it's an even better game. And it's only on PlayStation Vita. I don't write these words lightly. Killzone 2 is among my favorite shooters of all time. Killzone 3, while missing some of the second game's poignant da...

  • PES 2014 Preview: A fine showing on Fox Engine

    With its latest football game on the horizon, Konami is going into the upcoming year in second place.

  • Puppeteer Preview: two heads are better than one in 2013's must-see platformer

    It’s as if the Brothers Grimm (Hansel & Gretel), Tim Burton (Nightmare Before Christmas), Terry Gilliam (Monty Python’s Flying Circus) and Media Molecule (LittleBigPlanet) had a secret rendezvous one night under the light of the full moon and came up with the barking mad concept for ...

  • Rayman Legends Hands-on Preview: platforming with soul

    Ever since the limbless figure of Rayman lolloped onto PlayStation and other platforms in 1995, Michel Ancel’s kooky platforming series has consistently managed to strike that perfect balance of fun vs. challenge, taking gamers on a visually arresting and audibly charming journey filled with w...
