Time for some space-based scraps and scrap dealing.
Not perfect, but a lot better.
This game is amazing – but I really wish I had the PC version instead.
This is a game you watch, rather than play. And that’s fine if you’ve never seen the anime it’s based on – but if you have, get ready for some deja vu.
The adventures of a bumbling assassin.
Hollow Knight is one of the best Metroidvania games I’ve ever played, and a remarkable result for a first-time developer.
This acclaimed visual novel from the makers of the Zero Escape series received a perfect score from Famitsu magazine back in 2008 – and now it’s finally available in English.
PlayStation VR has entered The Manor, and it’s flippin’ amazing.
Call of Cthulhu is a pleasingly atmospheric take on Lovecraft’s creations – as long as you’re willing to overlook some of the rough edges.
A masterful return to form for a series that had lost its way.
The long-awaited Steel Rats is finally here, chainsaw wheels and vertical driving fully intact. But does it live up to its promise?
We’ve got two EU codes for the wonderfully OTT Steel Rats to give away, but you’ve only got a few days to enter, hurry!
Who the hell launches a new game a week before Red Dead Redemption 2?

It’s Space Invaders! Again! But even though Super Destronaut DX throws in a few innovations, there’s not much to hold your attention for long.
This Rogue-like Metroidvania is rock hard but thoroughly enjoyable. Reanimated corpses have never been so much fun.
The Gravity Rush 2 servers have shut down just a year and a half after the game’s release. I spent the last night sampling as much online stuff as I could.
With just two days to go until the server shutdown, I haven’t even scratched the surface of Gravity Rush 2’s online content.
Six years after its release, I’ve finally played Gravity Rush. And it’s an absolute belter.

It’s repetitive, admin-heavy and ridiculously sexualised, but for a small niche of players, The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 could be a lot of fun.
This beautiful ‘micro-RPG’ from One Bit Beyond may look cute, but it holds a fearsome challenge. If your character dies, they’re gone for forever – and you lose almost everything.
