  • No Man’s Sky [PS4] review: infinite bore-fare

    I'm over 20 hours into No Man’s Sky's deep, dark universe and I’m still as lost as I was when I first started. I’m perfectly fine with that. No Man's Sky is a space exploration game that allows you find countless galaxies, and over 18-quintillion randomly-generated planets. Your main mission of the game? There isn't really any, but you are chiefly  encouraged to find the centre of your galaxy. No Man's Sky isn't a game that will baby you with tutorials but offers you just enough help to not feel like a newborn. The game's beautiful and vast world truly makes you...

  • Titanfall 2 Tech Test debuts with mixed reactions

    The problem game developers face with any sequel is doing its predecessor justice. Often sequels pale in comparison and that seems to be the case, at least initially, with Titanfall 2. The sequel to Respawn and EA's Microsoft console exclusive Titanfall, Titanfall 2 will also arrive on PlayStation 4. But while that's a great thing for Sony stalwarts, judging by the game's early reception, it might be one of the only good takeaways for now, at least according to gamers' reactions. Respawn and EA have this weekend allowed users to play the game online in a "tech test", which is practically...

  • The PS4 Slim has seemingly leaked on Gumtree, Twitter

    A new listing appeared on Gumtree UK over the weekend, claiming to be the PlayStation 4 Slim. The ad, which has since been removed but is still accessible via Google cache, shows the box, as well as the new design on the front of the box. According to the seller, the console is a brand new 500GB model that's not in stores yet. As for a price, the seller wanted £295 but was willing to trade for a Macbook, iMac, iPhone 6S/6S Plus or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. So just how real is it? Well, Twitter user shortmaneighty2 has managed to apparently snag a console,...

  • No Man’s Sky version 1.04 hits PlayStation 4, fixes mild bugs

    Hello Games is today pushing its latest No Man's Sky version 1.04 patch to gamers' PlayStation 4 consoles.

  • Bound review: dance through your darkest dreams

    If shooting things in the face is your idea of a great gaming day, look away now, because Bound is a stark departure from your sadistic desires. With that said, though, the oddball game developed by Plastic Studios and Sony-owned Santa Monica Studio sure does ask a fair bit of questions about the gamer, regardless of your mental fortitude. But what does that mean, and what the hell does this game mean? I kept asking myself this throughout my playthrough and I still don't have a definitive answer. But can it even be called a game? According to the title's director,...

  • 5 biggest No Man’s Sky complaints from the gaming community

    No Man's Sky is finally out in many parts of the world, and scores of gamers are taking to Hello Games's labour of love. Between the near-infinite number of randomly generated worlds, space combat and planetary exploration, it's hard not to be captivated by the title. It's really something that the small team of developers can be proud of, at least on a technical level. In saying so, there have been a few complaints levelled against the game... The inventory system is problematic One of the biggest complaints we've seen was that the size of both the player and ship inventory was far...
