Bloodborne Guide



Bloodborne is a game that’s been almost impossible to ignore since it was first announced. Developed by the same team that brought us the brutally challenging Dark Souls series (preceded by Demon’s Souls), we were pretty much sold from the start on this hack-and-slash romp through a beautifully bleak gothic landscape.

However, Bloodborne is designed to be that little more welcoming to the not-so-hardcore crowd and while it’s certainly not going to be easy – you will still die an awful lot – there is more of an emphasis on enjoying the adventure, and not just surviving it. What exactly is that adventure about? Well, as with previous From Software titles, the developer isn’t giving too much away in terms of the storyline – that’s for you to unravel and figure out for yourself as you play through the campaign.

Barely anything has been compromised in Xenoblade Chronicles’ journey to handheld. Xenoblade Chronicles didn’t quite enjoy the enormous success many believed it deserved on Wii. Despite improving the RPG genre in numerous ways and offering arguably the finest role-playing adventure of its generation, lukewarm sales meant Monolith Soft’s gem instead had to settle for cult status. Nintendo is no doubt hopeful, then, that this 3DS port of the game will attract a new audience of gamers who missed it the first time around. Thankfully, they’ll get the full experience too.

We infiltrate Kojima Productions’ top-secret project and break down all the key details on the biggest Metal Gear Solid game yet


After months, nay years, of impatient waiting and reading way too much into everything Kojima has said and done in search of answers, we finally have what we wanted all along – a launch date for The Phantom Pain. Tuesday 1 September is the magical day that we’ll get to enjoy the beginning of the end for Big Boss, so book the week off now in preparation. Given that pretty much every other major game of the generation so far has suffered a delay of some kind, we really hope Kojima manages to buck that trend.
