  • No Man’s Sky: here’s what you should know

    It's been over two years since Hello Games announced No Man's Sky at E3 2014 and has since become one of the most highly-anticipated and hyped titles ever. That comes as no surprise though, as the recipe for this super space exploration sim provides us with all the ingredients a modern gamer seeks, and more. Exploration, discovery, ownership, combat and space… lots and lots of space.

The sheer magnitude of its universe almost rivals our own, and...

  • Latest No Man’s Sky trailer showcases zany space-fighting mechanics

    The question I've been asking about No Man's Sky is "what exactly do you DO in No Man's Sky?"  The latest trailer series is perhaps Hello Games' answer, showing off what exactly gamers can expect within the game. Now that No Man's Sky is finally out of its development phase and into its final stretch before release in early August, its developer's flaunting its visual splendour and interesting gaming mechanics, including a dog-fighting sequence. If you've ever wanted to shoot down spaceships in a game that didn't have a Han Solo in it, this seems like the ticket. So far, the video...

  • Gravity Rush 2 heading to Europe on 30 November

    Once PlayStation Vita darling Gravity Rush launched on the PlayStation 4 late last year, but Sony has finally given the world a launch date for its home console successor. Gravity Rush 2 is heading to the PlayStation 4 in late November/early December 2016, according to Sony PlayStation's latest blog post. "Gravity Rush 2 marks the return of gravity shifters Kat and Raven (now a powerful ally), ex-cop Syd, and introduces a bevy of new characters," Sony Interactive Entertainment's Olivier Banal explains. Banal also promises the introduction of a "mysterious guardian angel" who will be the first new face of the series. "Angel...

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider coming to PlayStation 4 in October?

    Rise of the Tomb Raider, the second installment of the new Tomb Raider series, is reportedly heading to PlayStation 4 in October. The game, a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and Windows 10, has previously been earmarked for a November launch on the Japanese console. However, thanks to the Italian division of Gamestop (and NeoGAF) we might've been given a little bit of a sneak peak, and an earlier than expected launch. The listing suggests that the expected date is 11/10/2016, which could be read in one of two ways, depending on where you happen to live. In Italy at...

  • No Man’s Sky needs just 6GB on PlayStation 4 blu-ray discs

    Hello Games' upcoming title No Man's Sky might boast the biggest world of any game this year (or likely any game before it), but it all packs rather neatly into a PlayStation 4's blu-ray disc with acres of room to spare. According to a tweet from Hello Games' Sean Murray, No Man's Sky uses just 6GB on its installation disc, with most of that being audio. For those asking - size of No Man's Sky on disc is just 6GB. A lot of that is audio (⌐■_■) — Sean Murray (@NoMansSky) July 10, 2016 That's incredibly small, especially when compared to the likes...

  • How can Sony PlayStation beat Microsoft Xbox at E3 2016? (and vice-versa)

    For the latest news, analysis and banter, stick to our E3 2016 live blog. We're on the eve of the world's biggest gaming expo and the stakes are as high as ever between Sony and Microsoft. Sony is in rude health thanks to record-breaking PS4 numbers, but we wonder what kind of impact the expected PS4 NEO would have on sales. Then again, Sony has revealed the console will miss E3. Meanwhile, Microsoft isn't doing too badly when judged on its own merit, but it's taking a beating at the cash registers compared to the PS4. So it definitely needs a PR coup to put momentum on its side. A solid...
