The Solus Project- Survival on an alien world

No Man’s Sky will have us exploring multitudes of planets once it’s released on the PS4, but the Xbox One is also getting it’s own space exploration/survival title. The Solus Project takes place in 2183, and you are part of an expedition to seek out a new home for humanity. Things go wrong and your ship crash lands on an uncharted planet. Now it will be up to you as the player to survive, and it is in this attention to survival that makes this title different from Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky.

The game features a PDA that closely monitors your hunger, thirst, and body temperature, among other things. You need to explore to find items to help you survive, and the game is said to have an extensive crafting system...

Batman: Arkham Knight- A rousing, though flawed, end to Rocksteady’s Batman saga

NOTE: The following review is based on my experiences with the game on the PS4. Xbox One players should have a similar experience, sans the Scarecrow Nightmare missions found in the AR Challenges section of the main menu. As of this date, it’s been widely documented about the issues plaguing the PC port, with many being unable to play the game at all. Others have been successful by turning off certain elements to help the game run. WB has currently suspended sales of the PC port until they can fix the issues.

Rocksteady made their mark on comic book games with 2009’s Batman: Arkham Asylum. Using a solid story, some great voice casting, a wide selection from Batman’s rogue’s gallery, and terrific gameplay utilizing free-form combat they set the bar high for all superhero games to reach...

Driveclub PS Plus Edition launching this week

Developer Evolution has announced that the long awaited PS Plus version of Driveclub will be launching this week. The edition, which was originally to have been a PS4 launch title, will finally be available for free to PS Plus users on Thursday, June 25.

Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed this in a post on the PS Blog, and said the launch will be done in stages to avoid the issues previously encountered with the disc based game. Players will have immediate access to the offline mode, and they will be brought gradually online so as not to overload the servers. The PS Plus version of the game has access to all game modes, but not all cars and tracks...

Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay – messing around with the Batmobile and some nice melee combat

Batman: Arkham Knight was released today, and I dove right into it as soon as the game arrived at my home. The game looks beautiful and controls nicely, with the story shaping up well in my four hours or so of play. Below is some of my gameplay footage, as I mess around with the Batmobile, work some things out, and wrap things up with a nice demonstration of the smooth melee combat. The footage is taken from the PS4. Enjoy!

Batman: Arkham Knight is now available on the PS4, PC, and Xbox One.

LEGO Jurassic World- Dinosaurs in all their blocky glory

It seems LEGO games appear on a regular basis, coinciding with blockbuster movies and just giving gamers their chance to collect studs and play with virtual blocks. So it’s no surprise that with Jurassic World stomping into theaters and all over box office records that we get a LEGO game tie in. And we get a full Jurassic experience, as the game contains all four movies- Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and of course the titular movie. Each game is composed of five levels and hits all the highlights of the films, faithfully recreating famous scenes and reciting famous lines. One note here: Because the game does recreate the movies so well, I’d recommend skipping the Jurassic World portion until after you’ve seen the film to avoid spoilers...

On this last full week of June we return to Gotham as Rocksteady wraps up its Arkham trilogy with Batman: Arkham Knight, coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
