Watch: Ian play Transformers Devastation, live at 5pm

I'm a huge fan of Transformers. Not the Transformers featured in the crappy, slightly racist, poop joke-filled monstrosities that Michael Bay keeps guffing out though. Most definitely not. I'm talking proper, die-cast metal G1 bots - the ones that featured in the only Transformers movie that mattered - 1986's animated Transformers: The Movie. Show More Summary

Uncharted: Remastered, revisited, reassessed

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, released today for PlayStation 4, has a few purposes. It makes Naughty Dog's trio of populist action spectaculars available to play on current consoles.

Charming 'work it out yourself' game Kingdom gets a release date

I wrote a bit about a game called Kingdom recently, a game I enjoyed because I had to work it out, and because it looks like a pixelated fairytale. Publisher Raw Fury has just given it a release date - 21st October - and a price: $10/€10/£7. Show More Summary

Transformers: Devastation review

There is only one attack that's able to puncture Megatron's shield, which throbs rather un-menacingly in fetching pink. First Bumblebee must transform into a car (not the testosterone-ripped Chevrolet Camaro of Michael Bay's brash trio of scrapyard-assault films, but rather a cutesy Choro-Q-esque love bug).

Is Hardware: Rivals the new Rocket League?

Hardware: Rivals, currently in beta on PS4, entered my consciousness recently not so much with a fanfare but with a low, persistent rumble.
