October 28, 2015
So it's Paris Games Week and after avoiding any big announcements at EGX and Gamescom in Germany Sony were expected to have a pretty big show with plenty of new titles in France. They didn't disappoint, so here's the highlights...
No Man's Sky from Hello Games has been a very exciting proposition for some time but unfortunately rumours of a 2015 release are untrue. In fact, the game is schedule for a June 2016 release so there's still a bit longer to wait. But wait, there's a new trailer with Rutger Hauer providing dialogue. Drool...
Street Fighter 5 keeps seeing new trailers released and today Capcom confirmed that Dhalsim is included in the game, with the game now confirmed for a February 19 release next year.
Sticking with Fighting games and NamcoBandai have confirmed that Tekken 7 will be coming to PS3 and XBox One. Interestingly, and we're not sure how this would work, the game will also support Playstation VR (the Virtual Reality headset due next year).
David Cage from French Developer Quantic Dream has announced their next game is called Detroit: Become Human. If you remember that stunning Kara tech demo from a couple of years ago the you'll be pleased to know this is an evolution of that project and tells the story of an android trying to fit into humanity.
Do you like Driveclub or motorbikes? If either applies then you'll be pretty excited to hear that Driveclub Bikes is available now.
We knew that both Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls were being remastered for the PS4 in Europe (and not confirmed for America yet) and while there is no release date the games are playable at the show. Hopefully they won't be far off.
Polyphony Digital. Remember them. Yes the Japanese development team behind Gran Turismo has finally announced their PS4 project - Gran Turismo Sport. A Beta will be available in early 2016 before a release, well, sometime in future.
With Uncharted 4: A Thief's End due out in March we will be getting a tast of the multiplayer in the Beta this December. That's playable at the show and runs at 900p at 60fps whereas the single player game will run at 1080p, but at 30fps. Oh, if you want to play the Beta, well you'll need to pick up copy of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection which we reviewed yesterday and is a cracking release.
Housemarque are a favourite developer of ours thanks to titles like Super Stardust HD and Resogun and now they have announced a new game called Matterfall. Question though: Where is Alienation guys?
Sony showed off some more games too including a new piece of gameplay footage from Horizon: Zero Dawn which had previously only been seen behind closed doors.
A new trailer for Gravity Rush 2 was shown, and it's certainly shaping up nicely.
Media Molecule's very interesing looking Dreams also got a pretty decent look with an 8-minute video detailing the creation software.
2K Games have announced that the Battleborn Beta will launch first on PS4 next year. New game modes were also announced for the game.
Avicii is one of the worlds best DJ's so when it's announced that his music will feature in a game called Vector - a music rhythm game - it's time to take note. So, take note...
When it comes to Playstation VR there were several titles announced including Robinson: The Journey from Crytek which is a fantastic looking game set in a world of dinosaurs.
Other VR games announced include Until Dawn: Rush of Blood which is an on-rails shooter, RIGS Mechanized Combat, and Battlezone from Rebellion.

PS4 Review Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is an essential purchase for those that never played the original games - and must be consider by those that did as well - we just have to say that up front.

Here's our full review of this cracker release.
October 26, 2015

Time will tell...

So this week is the week that Marty McFly travels into the future according to the Back to the Future films. It's an interesting prospect - 30 years ago the filmmakers predicted we'd have self-tying shoes (not quite yet, although Nike is releasing some in 2016 and sent the first pair to Michael J Fox this week!), Hoverboards (still a long way off), flying cars (not really close), video calls (we've got that with Skype), and 3D films (here in a big way). How does this tie into games? Well today Telltale Games is releasing Back to the Future: The Game - 30th Anniversary Edition! on PS4, XBox One and Xbox 360 today at retail. Set six months after the events of Back to the Future Part III, the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley - driverless! Now, Marty must go back to 1931 to recruit the help of a reluctant teenage Emmett Brown in order to save 1985's Doc from certain death.

PS4 Review Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is a Japanese styled Strategy RPG and the latest in Nippon Ichi's long running series.

So we heard the other day that the last-gen versions (PS3 and XBox 360) of Call of Duty: Black Ops III won't include a story campaign due to the fact it has been built around 4-player co-op.
