Need For Speed Heat review – cold comfort

Need For Speed Heat (PS4) – better than EA would have you think It’s already proven a flop but has Need For Speed Heat killed off the franchise or is it good enough to offer it another chance? The one thing everyone knows about Need For Speed Heat is that it’s already been a sales flop.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer now looks and sounds like Sonic

Sonic looks like Sonic, from the Sonic games! The leaks were real and not only does Sonic the Hedgehog look better in the new movie trailer but it even has game music in it too.

Death Stranding ‘difficult to understand’ for Americans suggests Hideo Kojima

Hideo Kojima – is he making excuses already? Hideo Kojima has made some unlikely suggestions to explain Death Stranding’s mixed reception, claiming only Europeans understand him. It seems Hideo Kojima may not be taking the negative reviews of Death Stranding very well, after he appeared to dismiss American critics and imply that they did not fully understand the game. ‘I have to say that the game received enthusiastic reviews, especially in Europe and Japan.
