If you were eagerly awaiting a Dark Souls-esque challenge on the newer batch consoles, then you probably have a PS4 waiting for Bloodborne early next year. That was the only game on its way from developers From Software, exclusive to Sony's new console as a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls. That's not the case anymore though, as both consoles will now get some Dark Souls loving next year.
The PS4 doesn't just have AAA titles - it also shows off some impressive indie games. Tennis in the Face is designed to be a quirky and funny little physics game, filled with silly references and unique level design. So is it an ace or a love?
If it were up to us, we'd be sitting down right now and playing Batman Arkham Knight in amongst the mess of other massive games that just hit shelves. But it's not up to us, and Rocksteady wanted more time to give their concluding chapter the spit and shine it deserved. And judging by the latest gameplay trailer for Arkham Knight, it's time that is being well spent.
It's common for games to receive a lengthy hype period leading up to it's eventual launch. That's what gets people excited and clambering for the game on release day, even if the wait feels excruciating. Telltale seemingly missed that class during Game Design 101, as they've decided to launch their take on the Borderlands universe right now.
Despite having only two games in the series, Dragon Age has a surprisingly chequered past. Origins was like a gift from The Maker himself, harking back to the RPG eras of old and delivering an all-round stellar experience. Dragon Age II, although not terrible, failed to live up to the first's exceptional standards - an odd thing to say about a BioWare game. Inquisition is not the same Dragon Age as Origins, but it manages to take the best of both previous games and deliver something truly spellbinding.
Over the past few weeks we’ve all been amazed at the massive improvement in graphics that Rockstar has shoved into their Xbox One and PS4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V and the early videos and screenshots showed a near parity between the Xbox One version and the PS4, however it’s not true.
From Software promised to give us more details about Bloodborne, and they certainly delivered. From new information on levels and characters to weapons and enemies, there is a bunch inside, including some gruesome new screens.
Thus far, exclusives on the consoles haven't been too mind blowing. I know the Halo fans among you are seeing the Master Chief Collection as the best reason to have an Xbox One, but for many there just haven't been new games to steal our hearts on one platform or another. Both consoles have some cool exclusives lined up for next year, and it seems Sony just grabbed another one.
A year since the new generation console have launched and it seems that the first battle was won by Sony. The PS4 has been selling fast and furious, but EA's Chief Financial Officer says that things are shifting in the market.
By now, most of you are re-cruising through San Andreas, taking advantage of a bump in textures while Trevor takes advantage of a bump of coke inside GTA V. There’s no denying that GTA V looks simply marvellous with some proper horses under the console hood. But more importantly, which console does it look better on? Who gets to take home the bragging rights?
Welcome to Monday night Lazygamer, the longest running episodic video game news website in history! And I’m afraid we’ve got some news that may be bad or good depending on how you take it!
Demos may be deader than Geoff’s regular sleeping habits, but the closest thing we’ve got to trying and maybe buying a game comes in the form of PlayStation 4’s Share Play feature. Part of the suite of new features from system update 2.0, Share Play allowed gamers to invite a second pal over the magic of the interwebs, to share an hour of gaming. Most games support the rather nifty idea. Games that don’t rhyme with Schmifa that is.
While Sony regularly has sales, it’s seldom that PlayStation 4 games are included in the discounts. Not this time. they’ve launched a great big PS4 specific sale in European territories. With double discounts for PlayStation Plus members, there are some great deals to be had.
It’s becoming increasingly rare these days to get a new game, and be able to play it without having to patch the damned thing. The very thing that made consoles such a hassle-free gaming environment has all but disappeared, leaving console gamers at the mercy of a myriad of patches and updates. Assassin’s Creed Unity had a rather large day one update, and it seems that GTA V will too.
Assassin's Creed Unity is out this Friday and so far the reviews are not as amazing as I would've hoped. I still want to play the game, out of a deep love for the franchise and even deeper one for the French Revolution, but I can't help but already feel disappointed. Only decision to make now is which platform to get it one - and it's looking like Xbox One is the better option.
