I don’t know about you, but I’ve been playing a lot of PlayStation VR recently. I was already taken with the technology, but Sony’s take on the medium has been a wonder to behold. It has its limitations, but it’s incredibly impressive all the same. But as good as the headset design is and as varied as the launch lineup has been (which we get into later this issue), the real hero of PlayStation VR is a six-year old piece of technology given new life and new purpose with virtual reality; PlayStation Move. I really can’t get over how well these comparatively ancient motion controllers work in combination with such modern technology. I had already found out how much more potent virtual reality can be when combined with motion tracking and individual…

where are the ps4 pro games?

The PlayStation 4 Pro is Sony’s answer to 4K gaming. A brand-new, powerful, system that’s set to support 4K, HDR and provide enhancements to PSVR, but many developers are still yet to confirm support. Just how difficult is it to get a game ready for 4K on console? “ I was amazed how good the game looked when we first got it working ” David Hensley, Killing Floor 2 Developers are scrambling. On 10 November, Sony is pushing the videogame industry into a new era. The company is launching the most powerful home console ever seen on the market; peddling fresh hardware that’s will not only provide a boost in performance to PlayStation VR, but will also offer enhanced fidelity across the library of games currently available on the PS4 system.

the ps4 pro launch titles

So you’ve got your 4K TV and you’ve picked up a PlayStation 4 Pro, but what games will really show off all of your new technology? While a handful of 2016’s biggest releases, such as Watch Dogs 2 and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare, will be patched for support, it’s these four we’ve been truly impressed with so far. KILLING FLOOR 2 Do you remember how much fun Left 4 Dead was? Killing Floor 2 is like that, but it’s bloodier and faster. Running in 4K, the game takes on a whole new dimension as Tripwire is able to make its enemies and environments look extra nasty – a welcomed distraction from the hundreds of zombies doing their best to tear you and your buddies limb from limb. SHADOW OF MORDOR Monolith’s Shadow Of…

the revival of the world war ii shooter

Of all the studios we would have guessed would try to take on the classic World War II multiplayer shooter arena and fill the gap left by Call Of Duty and Battlefield, the maker of Pneuma: Breath Of Life wasn’t high on the list. And yet that’s exactly what Bulkhead Interactive is doing. Battalion 1944 was backed on Kickstarter to the tune of £317,000 earlier in the year and has been in closed alpha, gradually building and improving even while the team was also getting The Turing Test out of the door. And it’s all because of the passion this team has for the genre. “Yeah, this is a business decision for us, but really when we sat down day one of making Pneuma and asked ‘what’s your dream game?’,” Bulkhead producer…

true inspirations

CALL OF DUTY 2 Hard to believe it’s been 11 years since Infinity Ward released this hugely successful and influential shooter on the world. As an Xbox 360 launch title it introduced a lot of new players to the concept of online shooters and set the bar for the genre. BATTLEFIELD 1942 Establishing itself early as a combination of high-brow tactical gaming and action, Battlefield 1942 is still held up as one of the all-time great online shooters and feels very much like the game DICE is trying to recapture with Battlefield 1. MEDAL OF HONOR Released way back in 1999, Medal Of Honor was the game that really put cinematic realism in World War II shooters on the map. Without it we doubt we would have Battlefield and Call Of Duty as we understand…

why i love... galaga

“I hate it when people play Galaga by just holding the button down, that is bullshit” BRIAN BRIGHT, PROJECT DIRECTOR, INFINITY WARD “My favourite game of all time is Galaga. I love the patterns. It’s a very pattern-based game and you can just slip into this zen with it. With the firing and then the double fire and it’s awesome, but then sometimes you shoot your own ship and it’s just like arrrgh, god damn, I’ve just ruined it! But then you can fight back, right? Every 20,000 points and then every 70,000 and you get a free life and then you get the challenging stages and it’s like, shit, I can’t miss one! Though I hate it when people play Galaga by just holding the button down, that is total…
