New Call of Duty set in World War 2


A leaked image is doing the rounds on the internet and it's the best news ever, for me anyway.
The next Call Of Duty is going back to what it does best.....WW2. COD was the first PC game I bought. I loved it. In fact I bought a 360 to play the second.

Sledgehammer Games are at the helm so no pressure then. This is all still unconfirmed. Looking at the image it's safe to say a Omaha Beach landing is a must. Medal Of Honour Frontlines beach landing on PS2 was brilliant back in the day.
I just hope the developers remember that they are dealing with real humans that couldn't upgrade stats to get better and lets see some Brothers in Arms style play not just the usual run and gun.

Can't wait.




Horizon Zero Dawn Sales Top 2.5 Million


The brilliant Horizon Zero Dawn has sold through nearly 2.6 Million units in just two weeks Sony has said.

Horizon Zero Dawn has taken many gamers and critics by surprise with its lush vast open world and brilliant game play. I for one that was blown away.
I'd just finished Uncharted 4 and bought Horizon after reading the reaction the game got. In fact I was going to wait for a price drop before buying.

Never before have I been so shocked at how brilliant a game is. The last time I felt like this over a game was Grand Theft Auto Vice City on PS2.
Is it because the developer is the creator of Killzone? Not that Killzone games are bad. I enjoy the Killzone games but I just didn't see this coming even after seeing it in action at E3.

Well done Sony. My best game so far on PS4 and yes better than Uncharted and Bloodborne.



Days Of War Coming to Playstation 4


Now this looks epic. Days Of War is a first person shooter set in.............World War 2. Get in!
I seriously can't wait for this. From what I've seen of the early access on PC it's ripped right out of Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers.

Take a look at the footage below and get VERY excited. We will be storming the beaches later this year.

PlayStation 4 PRO PSVR Boost

I have been reading a few websites and what they think of PS4 PRO and how it boosts PlayStation VR. (or doesn't)
I strongly feel that some sites, no matter what, are intent on hating the PRO.
I got the PRO on launch to go with my Sony 4K TV. Now as you may know, the Sony TV does a great job of up scaling the image to 4K with the built in K1 chip. So games looked great before. PRO boosts them with my TV to really nice prity graphics and text now really pops on games like Fallout 4. I'm not sure if Fallout has had 4K patches yet but on my TV it looks incredible.

Back to VR. Games simply look much, much better. Take VR worlds. I've read people say they see a slight difference. Rubbish. I've not played that game for two weeks and as soon as it loaded the difference was huge. The stone floor in the game lobby area is now crisp and the Dual Shock 4 is crisp with no jaggies.
I tried the shark cage as this was the first game I tried when I first got the VR. EVERYTHING is so much clearer, cleaner and the lighting pops as does textures. What I found strange was the fact that everything seems bigger, the cage, the shark everything seem bigger. What's more the text on the yellow hand operated dial hanging in the cage is now clearly readable. Before the text was all blurred.

                                        This is more like the image now with PlayStation PRO

I tried all the games, they all pop in the same way. Batman is another one. Everything looks so much sharper. I'm not talking just a little or hard to tell like some others make out. As soon as these games boot you'll instantly be able to notice the difference. Interestingly, Scavengers Odyssey made me want to vomit. Last night on Pro I was fine?? Really not sure why. Does Pro boost the frame rate? That game too looked much better.

Batman is now cleaner looking on PRO

PlayStation Pro for me is a no brainer. I've sold my old PS4 (launch model) for £150 so a £199.00 investment for a 4K PS4 that does everything I want with double the hard drive space.
Pro is essential to any 4K TV owner or anyone with PSVR.

Fallout 4 PlayStation 4 Mods patch is live!


Just been prompted to download the mods patch for PS4.  Mods on PS4 were in doubt but a deal is done and you can now mod away.

Patch 1.8 also has quite a few bug fixes etc.

PlayStation 4 Pro Boosts PS4 sales. UK


According to sales data the PS4 Pro has boosted not only visuals up to 4K but has also boosted PS4 sales by 204%.

Ironic as Pro boosts power by, yes X2. MVC have seen sales data that shows sales tripling from Thursday.

We have the Pro and think the upgrade is well worth it even owning the old launch PS4. I've noticed every game looks better on my 4K Bravia. 

Obduction announced for PlayStation VR


Myst and Riven developer Cyan have announced some exciting news about there stunning looking first person adventure game.

Call Of Duty Jackal Assault VR Review: Updated


Update: In-game VR footage.


It come as a bit of a shock this week for Call Of Duty Jackal Assault to appear in the store for, get this......FREE.

Ok it's short but this was announced as part of Infinite Warfare, but to download for free without even owning the full game from the store is massive kudos to Activision.

In Jackal Assault you take charge of a state of the art fighter jet. As you sit in the cockpit you can look around the hanger and view your arms and hands moving back and forth as you move the thumb sticks on the dual shock 4.


After shooting out of the hanger you are treated to a short tutorial to get to grips with the controls. You use the thumb sticks as you would any FPS or flight game but the VR twist comes in the form of seeking out targets buy just looking for them and locking on then firing homing missiles with L2. Firing your main guns is with R2. You can invert your looking preference by simply pressing square.

Graphics are very good and sound is brilliant. In normal VR fair I found myself ducking as huge explosions filled my field of view. It's short but striking and excites me for Ace Combat VR.

I think it's very important to point out that I had very little motion sickness. This could be that I'm now getting used to VR games. I hope so.


I really hope Activision see fit to turn this into a full game. Until then you can download this for free without owning the full game. What are you waiting for?

How We Soar For Playstation VR


How we soar is a beautiful looking flight game that sees you riding on the back of a Phoenix.
 The game has a very authentic look to it. It instantly put me in mind of Tearaway combined with Flower. If the developer can pull off the same kind of fun found in those game in a VR world we could be in for a traet.

Some of the development team are of Crytek and the brilliant makers of Timesplitters games, Free Radical no less.

HWS is a Playstation VR game and to give you an idea of how it plays take a look at the below video. More news as soon as we get it.

How We Soar will launch this year for Playstation VR.
