MediEvil: Sir Daniel Fortesque Should Have Stayed Buried in the 90s’

PlayStation has been on a bit of a push these past two years to revitalise some of their early titles. It appears Sony feel enough time has passed for nostalgia to set in and it’s brought forth a flood of 90s’ classics. Another PlayStation mascot it ready to take the stage this Autumn in MediEvil. The hack and slash adventure game has an upcoming remake scheduled for October this year. From Sony’s own publishing brand, Sony Entertainment Interactive.

Everything You Need to Know About the PlayStation 5

The internet is once again awash with rumours about the impending release of the PlayStation 5. There have been whispers PlayStation intended to steal a march on the competition in the impending console generation. A majority of fans considered the PS4 Pro to be a lacklustre mid-tier upgrade. Especially in comparison to the far superior Xbox One X. This led to rumours that Sony was holding off on a lot of bells and whistles as they were close to launching the PS5. Sony will also, interestingly, be absent from this year’s E3 for the first time in the exhibition’s history. […]

Cuphead On Nintendo Switch – A Match Made In Heaven

The Nintendo Switch has scored an excellent addition to its library in tough as nails action-platformer Cuphead. The Xbox exclusive joins a collection of top platformers on the console.   It’s been a tough console generation for Xbox. They abandoned their unique Kinect peripheral due to the fact that it largely never worked. And a significant drop off in landmark exclusives has seen the Xbox One fall far behind the competition. The PlayStation 4 has sold an estimated 54 million more units than the Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch meanwhile is projected to overtake it’s sales this year, despite being a […]

DOA: Days Gone Is Way Too Late to the Zombie Survival Party

It’s been a strange 2019 for PlayStation following up on a landmark 2018 where they blew the competition away. Two of last years most highly acclaimed games God Of War and Spider-Man were both PS4 exclusives. On top of that, console sales for the PS4 sit a good 20m+ higher than the current gen Xbox and Nintendo sales combined. Albeit the Switch is much earlier into it’s life-cycle than the PS4, there’s no denying PlayStation are ahead of the game. The console wars were seemingly prepped for Sony to stick a fork in, but then it’s all gone a little […]

How Firestorm’s destruction changes the Battle Royale game

There is no shortage of Battle Royale games on the market and every newcomer must find a way to put its own spin on the genre. What does Battlefield V: Firestorm do? Destruction. Dice and EA recently released the long-awaited Battle Royale game mode Firestorm to Battlefield V. It is safe to say that it is late to the party; six months after the biggest competitor Call of Duty and released a mere month after the launch of the excellent Apex Legends. Same, but different I have played nearly every Battle Royale title on the market so far. What Firestorm […]

Google Stadia Could Spell The End of The Console Wars

Rumours that Google were about to break into the console market have been circling for some time. And we finally have some solid evidence of the project that has been labelled Google Stadia.

Six Narrative Predictions for Insomniac’s Spider-man 2

Late last year Insomniac games finally cracked the code of an enjoyable Spider-Man game. The Sony exclusive was so well received that it was even nominated for Game Of The Year at the 2018 Golden Joystick Awards. And that has quickly lead to rumours of a sequel to help launch a proposed Marvel gaming universe. The comic giant is looking to extend their stranglehold on pop culture after this successful venture into the gaming market. Now that we’ve had time for the dust to settle on the final DLC pack we take a look at some of our early predictions […]

Crash Team Racing: The Remake We’ve Been Waiting For or Another Sony Cash Grab?

‘90s kids have been hit hard in the nostalgia glands this past couple of years. Many platforming mascots left behind in that era have enjoyed a resurgence of late. Sonic Mania, Crash N’Sane Trilogy and more recently Spyro: Reignited Trilogy to name a few. On top of that, we’ve been privy to a SNES mini and an upcoming PS1 classic as a compendium of other greats. There was one series that seemed an unfortunate omission though, particularly with the success of the Crash N’Sane Trilogy, Crash Team Racing. That is until recently when Sony announced a re-release is indeed on […]

Are Gamers Happy with the Number of Female Characters?

The underrepresentation of women as characters is perhaps more pronounced in video games than in any other entertainment medium. How do gamers feel about the issue? We went to find out. Sony is starting to do better with its AAA titles, featuring women in the leading role of 2017’s game of the year, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and in upcoming The Last of Us 2. Still, progress across the board is slow, and we’re far off equality of gender representation. RPGs have often gotten around the issue by having the player select the gender of their character. Still, when a character […]
