  • 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...

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts - Odin space mission walkthrough and screenshots

    At a Call of Duty: Ghosts press event in London this week, Activision walked us through a new mission that takes place near the beginning of the game and thrusts players into a gravity-defying and exciting battle on a space station, setting up the action nicely for a war that takes place followi...

  • 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...

  • Watch Dogs E3 preview: a different kind of multiplayer

    by Jonathan Ottman, contributor After being blown away at E3 2012 by Watch Dogs, I wasn't so surprised to see it once again grace E3 with a commanding presence.

  • Thief E3 preview: Staying unseen never looked so good

    by Jonathan Ottman Thief--a series reboot rumored to be in the works one minute, then scrapped the next--has faced more issues coming to market than its predecessors (which is saying something).

  • The Witness E3 preview: beauty in the bare

    Warning: minor spoilers about The Witness' setting and world lie ahead. What I saw of The Witness, Jonathan Blow's first post-Braid effort, at E3 2013 was refreshing in several ways.

  • The Witcher 3 E3 preview: Geralt's final journey is my Game of Show

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was the very last game I saw at E3 last week. In a week full of surprises, where each day put a new game at the top of my list for "Best of Show," a 60-minute developer demo was all it took to sell me on The Witcher 3's lovingly handcrafted fantasy world and the r...
