Shadow of the Beast, originally developed by Reflections in 1989 (before Ubisoft bought them up), is a classic side-scrolling action platformer that – at the time – was a revolutionary game. It’s become a cult classic, spawning sequels and many, many fans. It’s coming back, exclusively to the PlayStation 4. Here’s what it looks like.
Last month, Sony asserted that it had “won” the February NPD hardware sales numbers – when in fact, that honour went to Nintendo’s shinier, newer, more three-dee-er New 3DS. For March though? They’re back on top.
We know that Mortal Kombat X on PlayStation platforms is region locked – meaning you’re only able to play multiplayer games with those in the same geographical location as you. For a fighting game, I have no problem with this – the latency when playing with people far away is terrible. Unfortunately, it seems to be in the game’s code, and not filtered by IP or ping. Reports suggest that buying the digital copy of the game from US PSN servers means you’re stuck playing the game’s multiplayer with Americans.
The only problem however, is that it doesn’t come in black. But the contents of this bundle, shall be gratefully accepted! We will need them, when we take over Gotham with our various and poorly performed Bane one-liners from The Dark Knight Rises. What a lovely, lovely voice…
So there is a rumour on the Internet that Bloodborne is a difficult game of some kind, and while that rumour is 100% true - the game is a monster to complete - it is possible to speed run the game in just 44 minutes using glitches and exploits to pave the way.
Cooperative gameplay has always been unusual in From Software games. Geoff actually had to explain how to get it to work. However, even when following the directions, you might find that you can't team up with people - here're some reasons why.
It’s time. Time to sit on a 1000cc engine of angry horsepower and genital-searing potential, as you hit the track and take your pocket rocket for a spin. It’s time for a whole new generation of motorcycle action on more powerful hardware. Unfortunately you’ve got Milestone developing the latest iteration of the MotoGP franchise, so prepare for more of the same, yet again.
The PlayStation 4 is about to benefit from a visit to the men's health clinic. That's right, all new firmware is on its way and aims to please you. Beyond allowing you to suspend gameplay, there'a an all new feature previous unconfirmed or announced that no one cared about but now everyone will want.
Bloodborne is out, and it’s an incredible experience for masochists and people who just love great games. As you’ll see when you get home to play it today, you’ll be confronted by a 2.69GB day one patch. That patch increases stability, contains a few game optimisations, enables co-op and opens up the game’s servers to all and sundry. Still, the game’s got a few performance issues and some unfortunately long load times. There’s a brand new patch coming to fix that.
Bloodborne is less than a week away and it's the first console exclusive that I'm seriously excited for- Bloodborne looks like it will be worth buying a PS4. And now I have some shiny new screens, info and videos for you.
Bloodborne is less than a week away. People are getting extremely excited and they should be - the game looks gorgeous. Of course the game will offer a bunch of trophies for the keen collector. As always with these lists, be aware of spoilers. If you want to keep yourself pure for the game, don't read any further. If you simply can't wait, follow me.
A week or so ago, a bunch of people starting talking about the Bloodborne launch trailer. However, it was just a rerelease of the story trailer from earlier this month. Now, thanks to PlayStation Japan, we can finally watch the actual Bloodborne launch trailer and it is doing everything it was intended to do.
Bloodborne is getting people so excited. Maybe it's the dark ambiance, maybe it's the punishing gameplay, or maybe it's all about praising the sun. Now we get more information about the procedurally generated Chalice Dungeons, as well as some fresh and English screens.
The PlayStation 2 redefined gaming for many people around the world. With a plethora of games and the fact it doubled as a DVD player, many people jumped at Sony's console. I think I ended up with three of them by the end of the generation thanks to multiple international moves and divorcing parents. Sony is finding staggering success with the PS4's sales, but how do they stack up against the legendary PS2?
I love the new generation of consoles. They are impressive pieces of machinery that offer fantastic gaming experiences far superior to the last generation. While we may debate which one is best down to the pixels and framerates, the sales figures certainly speak for themselves. The latest numbers are rather impressive, and more so when we compare to the announcement before.
