No, you don't need PlayStation Plus for No Man's Sky

Universe-spanning exploration game No Man's Sky does not require a PlayStation Plus subscription to play. Not to disappoint you, but the chances of meeting another player in the game are so small - and the likelihood you'll meet anyone you know so infinitesimal - that the game is technically classed as single-player.

Here's how Sonic's Green Hill Zone looks in Lego Dimensions

Last weekend, Sega unveiled not one but two new Sonic titles headed our way in 2017. Before then, though, Sonic will return to the world of video games in November as part of Lego Dimensions. We've known of Sonic's involvement in Lego...Show More Summary

Headlander review

Headlander makes a helluva trailer. Its central premise and a lavish lust for early 70s sci-fi kitsch are instantly eye-catching, the fact that it comes from the same studio that made the wonderfully written adventure classic Psychonauts only raising expectations. Show More Summary

The opening logo movie for Kojima's new studio is typically overblown

Hideo Kojima is still very much on his world tour, it seems, and having only recently sampled the breakfasts of Brighton (a woeful hash brown, some miserable button mushrooms and a tiny little sausage - come on Brighton, we can do better...Show More Summary

There's an Elite: Dangerous rock opera at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

This sounds fun: a rock opera based on Elite: Dangerous, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe next month. The show is called Mercy and the Wild Sea and combines film, live music and performance. Judging by the promotional video, that film will contain game footage of spaceships flying around, as well as to-camera sections by pilots. Show More Summary

Pokémon Go's San Diego Comic-Con panel saw Team Leaders revealed

Are you Team Valor, Team Mystic, or did you slip up and choose Team Instinct? Whichever Pokémon Go team you're on, you now have a leader to pledge your services. Each of the three will be appearing in Pokémon Go within the near future, developer Niantic told a sold-out San Diego Comic-Con panel audience over the weekend. Read more…

Nintendo shares dive as investors realise it doesn't own Pokémon Go

After a meteoric rise following the launch of Pokémon Go, Nintendo's share price has fallen abruptly. The reason? It seems investors have finally heard Nintendo doesn't actually own the mobile phenomenon. A Nintendo financial briefing on Friday broke the news that, since it didn't own the app, any profits from it would be limited, BBC News reported. Read more…

Splatoon bows out in style with its last ever Splatfest

Splatoon's not going anywhere - the amazing success of Nintendo's Wii U exclusive has ensured that - but over a year of support came to an end over the weekend as the last ever Splatfest was held. And in a perfectly fitting finale, the...Show More Summary

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2 are being spruced up and re-released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this week. They're due Tuesday, 26th July (which probably translates to Wednesday for European PlayStation Store), and can be bought either in a two-game bundle for $60, or individually for $40, which sounds rather steep for old games.

Watch: The bad guys who had a point, now we think about it

The ostensibly bad guy sometimes has a good point after all, when you think about it (we've been thinking about it). Reconsider Streets of Rage 2's beleaguered barkeep Barbon, Batman Arkham Origins' took-it-too-far activist Anarky and did-what-he-had-to King Logan from Fable 3, just for starters, in the video below.

AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB vs 8GB review

We have unfinished business with the Radeon RX 480. When we initially reviewed the card, we took a look at the 8GB reference version - as supplied by AMD. However, the main selling point of the product is the $199 price-tag, which sees us move firmly into 4GB territory. Show More Summary

The classic 8-Bit isometric games that tried to break the mould

The recent release of Lumo has proved there is still much love not just for retro-themed games, but also the isometric viewpoint that became popular on 8-bit computers in the mid-80s. While Lumo's creator, Gareth Noyce, freely admits...Show More Summary

Tech Interview: Gears of War 4

The Coalition has been hard at work on Gears of War 4 for years now, but 2016 is the year when fans will finally get their hands on the game. Microsoft showed off an impressive demo of Gears 4 at its E3 media briefing this year and we were impressed to learn that it was shown running on Xbox One when a PC version is also in development.

Watch: Six levels warmer than the UK was this week

I hate summer. Man's natural state, as far as I'm concerned, is not one spent constantly sticking to oneself, one's clothing, one's loved ones, passing vehicles, or anything else. With this week's heatwave having evaporated all thoughts other than 'crikey it's hot' from our brains, we cobbled together this week's Eurogamer Show as best we could. Show More Summary
