Uncharted: The Lost Legacy review: Same old Uncharted, but different

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Originally touted as the first singleplayer DLC for the Uncharted franchise but later evolving into a larger standalone release, The Lost Legacy is an interesting departure for the series. For many, it needed to answer a burning question: can Uncharted survive without its signature wisecracking, swashbuckling protagonist, Nathan Drake? Well, ...[Read More]

Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy review: N.Credibly N.Joyable N.Third Pun

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Goddamn, nostalgia is a hell of thing, isn’t it? I was a gigantic fan of Crash Bandicoot when I was a child, having smashed through the original trilogy, along with Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash, on my old PS1. As a hardcore Playstation fan back in the day, Crash and his cohort of sidekicks and villains were essentially my Mario, Lui...[Read More]

There are some pretty great The Last of Us Part II plot theories

Of course The Last of Us Part II being announced was always going to be a big deal, but what we perhaps didn’t anticipate is how the plot would be introduced to us. And in typical trailer fashion not too much was hinted at in the moody reveal last weekend. We were reintroduced to Ellie and Joel, with heavy hints of revenge and a sing song, but why is Ellie so worked up? Why didn’t we s...[Read More]

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy DLC sure takes a dark tone for the series

Jeez, the one time I take a holiday, just a quick weekend away, and literally all the huge Playstation news happens. Firstly The Last of Us Part II is officially a real thing, and you can bet I have some feelings about that (more on that another time). The Crash Bandicoot remaster, the N. Sane Trilogy, looks, well, insane. Goddamn PaRappa the Rapper is being remastered for the game’s 20th an...[Read More]

New trailer and details on Crash Bandicoot’s “remaster plus”

Every so often we get a remaster that’s actually worth paying attention to, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy might be one of them. After teasing us at the last E3, Activision and Vicarious Vision have let the Bandicoot out of the crate at today’s Playstation Experience: In a follow-up post on the Playstation Blog, Game Director Dan Tanguay writes that the games had to be rebuilt from scratch us...[Read More]

The Last of Us Part II announced

The long rumored sequel to The Last of Us was announced at the annual PlayStation Experience in San Francisco this morning. The trailer rounded up the show, which had some other juicy announcements that we’ll get to later. It shows a grown up Ellie playing guitar surrounded by a bunch of dead bodies, in walks Joel and asks if she’s going to go through with something, to which Ellie res...[Read More]

Uncharted 4 gets the Honest Trailer treatment

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been out for a while now, but the guys over at Smosh Games’ Honest Trailers have finally gotten around to giving it a good roast. These videos are often either brutal takedowns of terrible games or affectionately poking fun at the flaws of great ones, and Uncharted 4’s certainly finds itself in the latter category. I mean, as much as I love Nathan D...[Read More]

Uncharted 4 is the fastest selling PS4 exclusive to date

It’s been two weeks since the latest (and said to be last) adventure of Nathan “perfect, un-mussable hair” Drake dropped onto Playstation 4’s everywhere. OK, maybe not everywhere, but at least a fair few places as Sony announced today that Uncharted 4 sold 2.7 million copies in its first week worldwide, making it the fastest selling of the console’s exclusive titles. ...[Read More]

Uncharted 4 multiplayer impressions: a worthy addition to a great game

Last week I described Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as “one hell of a gaming experience”, praising its fantastic story, solid gameplay and “unreasonably good” graphics. That review was based solely upon the single player portion of the game because that was all I had access to prior to launch, and in the interest of being timely I opted to publish it first and then have ...[Read More]

Uncharted 4 is the best looking console game ever says Digital Foundry

If you read my review of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End yesterday, head over here if you haven’t yet, you’ll know I described the game’s visual quality as “unbelievably gorgeous”. Heck, in my review summary I called them “unreasonably good”. Well, if my word isn’t enough for you, renowned tech-xperts Digital Foundry have released their run down of ...[Read More]

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review: one last adventure…

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. Note: As we did not have early access to the multiplayer component of the game, this review relates to the single player campaign of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Multiplayer impressions will come at a later time. Right off the bat, I’m going to say Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is a marvel to behold. While it is not without its issues, an...[Read More]
