Watch: Should some franchises stay in the past?

Hello there. It's Saturday, which typically means it's time for me to introduce the latest episode of the Eurogamer Show and tell you all about what we've been up to over the past seven days.

Please games, let me be stumped

I walked the EGX 2015 floor among a sea of games and one bobbled to the top. It wasn't shouting at me like a blockbuster but quietly resting, a king on a horse, like a scene from a pixelated fairytale. I watched someone sit down and play it, gallop left and right, screen following them through foresty scenes. Show More Summary

Wheels of Aurelia: a game about driving?

"Are you a feminist?" Two young women alone in a sports car: there's probably a political dimension to this. Certainly in Italy in the 1970s there is, anyway, where everything has a political dimension. "Terrorism, kidnappings, political turmoil" reads the marketing blurb. Show More Summary

PS1 at 20: Fluid's symphony of drugs, dolphins and drum'n'bass

If there's a more ubiquitous cliché about PlayStation's impact on the gaming landscape than they-put-Wipeout-in-clubs-and-made-games-cool, then I've temporarily forgotten it.
