    inFAMOUS Second Son PS4 review

    We need to talk about inFamous Second Son‘s hero Delsin. No, really. A stern conversation is in order. Sure, we can overlook the constant graffiti, cocky quips and those times he inexplicably clambers along skyscraper window sills. But now he’s run away from his Akomish tribe and on top of that, smoke keeps billowing from his extremities. The only way you’re going to discipline him is by buying this consistently…

    You want to know how short Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is, right? The answer falls somewhere between the length of Bilbo Baggins’ little finger and your average episode of Pingu. That’s the conundrum when reviewing Hideo Kojima’s oh so slight Snake teaser: how do you score a game that is unquestionably brilliant but lasts less than a Corrie omnibus? Assuming you’ve skipped ahead to that respectably sized digit, though, you’ll see I’ve clearly managed. Yes, this espionage appetiser is over sharpish. But for the time it lasts, the Phantom Pain’s prologue is better than the majority of full-length games on PS4.

    In case you’ve not read our Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes PS4 review (be a dear and put that right now, would you?), Big Boss’ next-gen debut is really rather good. It’s also really dang short. How short? Well, resident MGS madman Meiks has just finished it in a lick over 18 minutes on his third playthrough. Of course, there’s far more content to Ground Zeroes than a frantic speed-run. Yet if you just want to blitz through the game as quickly as possible for leaderboard bragging rights, our video guide will help you get one hell of a speedy slither on.

    While we’ve yet to get the full picture for Batman Arkham Knight we know this: firstly a few key villains have been announced and, secondly, developer Rocksteady has a history of teasing clues in previous games. Has it already told us the line up of bad guys?

    Like haggis fritters smothered in Marmite, Dark Souls 2’s unrelenting difficulty isn’t for everyone. For those with a glutton for punishment, you’re in for a meal that challenges and nourishes like no other – albeit one that likes to hoof you in the unmentionables every chance it gets. Hold me, dear reader. This is going to be one bumpy, but thankfully brilliant, descent back into the depths of despair.

    1080p & 60fps has to be the new standard, not a luxury for PS4 games

    You probably don’t realise this, but you’ve been getting horribly screwed for the last six years. Ever since PS3 launched, the all-seeing holes in your head have been slumming it in the mire of 1,280 x 720 resolutions at framerates that would need an Acme-style rocket pack to reach that magic number sitting somewhere between 59 and 61. Your peepers deserve so much more.

    Carnivores HD Dinosaur Hunter

    Remember that nerve-jangling bit in Jurassic Park where Muldoon silently stalks two Raptors through a sweltering Costa Rican jungle? Well Carnivores HD: Dinosaur Hunter is kinda like that… if Bob Peck had spent 45 minutes cowering in a bush before getting “Clever Girl-ed” into fleshy tatters. Slow-burning, often unspectacular, this PSN hunter nevertheless has a charming depth if you’ve got the patience to unearth it.

    Magrunner Dark Pulse

    Peanut butter and jam. Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie. A 50ft gorilla and a half-naked blonde starlet. Your physics teacher was right: opposites really do attract. Although magnetising different coloured cubes to solve platform puzzles isn’t quite as exciting as some King Kong-sized foreplay. Sadly.
