Opening Scenes: Velocity 2X - 27 Mins of Gameplay

The PS4 offerings for PS+ have been a bit too niche for their own good in recent months, but Velocity 2X is a stone cold classic. This newly released title is available for free to anyone on Sony's subscription service and is out now on both PS4 and Vita.

Today we have 27 minutes of gameplay footage for you, captured from the PS4 version as I play the game for the first time. Velocity 2X is a hybrid of retro shooter and 2D platformer and works best when played at full tilt. The video shows off how effortlessly the game switches between the two genres to become one of the best releases of the year so far. We'll have a review for you soon, but for now check out what you're missing, then go and download it.

VIDEO | Watch Jon's first space dogfight in GoD Factory: Wingmen!

GoD Factory Wingmen is the dictionary definition of an underdog success story. This ambitious, gorgeous and thoroughly intense multiplayer arcade space sim missed its Kickstarter target, but was picked up by Namco Bandai and finally released last Friday.

Spoiler alert: it's awesome. Hectic action goes hand-in-hand with addictive progression and comprehensive ship customisation.

I'm currently working on our full review, but to tide you over, here's the full unedited video of my first space skirmish. Four pilots per team, two carriers, one highway through the danger zone!

VIDEO | Project CARS: Brands Hatch offscreen gameplay (PS4)

Project CARS is looking more exciting (and gorgeous, it must me said) every time we see it - and I managed to scrape an amateurish fourth place during a hands-on race around Brands Hatch.

Be on the lookout for the dynamic weather, which massively affects the driving conditions, handling and visibility. This demo track accelerates the onset of a rainstorm over three laps, so you can judge for yourself.

Oh, and sorry about the glare! I'll have some shinier videos for you soon, along with more in-depth coverage. Did you catch our interview with producer Pete Morrish?

Let's Play... Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition - Adventure Mode

The new Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has been devouring our time here at Castle Dealspwn lately. Jon's putting the finishing touches to his review and I recently put together a beginner's tips guide. After getting back from my hols though I've finally been able to finish the campaign mode which, as players of the original version will know, has meant the Adventure mode has finally unlocked.

This part of Diablo III's end-game sees you tasked with bounties or killcount targets to bring in some seriously fat XP and gold rewards, not to mention all sorts of shiny loot. Blood Shards are rare rewards too and also a new currency that allows you to gamble for some exceptionally rare items. So, take a look at my new video and see some early missions and bounties I take on during my first day with Adventure mode. This is also where you earn keystone fragments to unlock the raid-like Rift missions. We'll have some coverage of those soon, although I'm wondering if I had better hit Lv. 70 first.

Super Smash Bros may feel most at home on a big screen, but it's 3DS counterpart is no slouch either. Containing unique levels, 60FPS visuals and intuitive controls, there's every chance that it's going to be a portable powerhouse.

You can watch me play several local multiplayer games of it above, brought to you in glorious ShakyCam™. The footage is entirely unedited, so you'll get to enjoy my banter, listen to me meeting new friends and witness how terrible I am at it.

Which version of Super Smash Bros are you looking forward to most?

Are you ready to witness some sweet Smash skills? Prepared for a masterclass in high-level play? Then you've come to the wrong place, friend, as I've returned from Gamescom 2014 with footage of me being a total and complete button masher. I strongly suspect that the rep let me win.

However, you'll also get to watch new footage of Marth and advanced character Roselia in action, alongside some of the new Wii U-exclusive stages. Apologies for the resolution, though, which I had to massively ding due to battery life concerns.

I've been itching to get my tentacles on Splatoon ever since Nintendo announced it at E3. A hectic territory control shooter with crazy paint mechanics and the ability to turn into a squid at will? And paint grenades? Count me firmly in.

You can watch what happens when I got my hands on it at Nintendo's Gamescom booth above. Spoiler alert: it's really, really fun.

Matt's preview is on-site with more details, but personally speaking, I'm only worried about whether spraying paint cannons at walls will remain fun after several hours. We'll find out soon enough.

In this week's episode of Game Night, Brendan and I climb upon our Dealspwnies of war and ride into battle against super-powerful spider tanks and a spawn-camping purple eye of belligerence. Yes, we're back in Old Russia for this one, as we take on the Level 6 "Strike" Mission in the Destiny beta, and I die a lot and get a bit hysterical.

The Floating Robot of Tyrion Lannister believes that there's an old comms array that might still be working up near the Skywatch, and that it could potentially put Earth in contact with some of the relatively close-by colonies.

Only problem is that swathes of Fallen and Hive stand in the way of getting some answers

NEW MAP! Destiny PS4 Beta Gameplay | PvP Control on "Shores of Time" - Maat Mons, Venus

The "Shores of Time" Maat Mons Venus map added to the Crucible matches for the Destiny beta offers up a fresh slice of PvP action. The only mode available is still Control, where players vie for domination across three capture points, but what's interesting about Maat Mons is its size. Unlike the Moon map, Maat Mons is tightly packed, with all three control points very close together, much like Rusted Lands. All three points have two main routes in and out, creating a triangle that keeps players moving, and the flow of battle constantly changing.

It's a map that's perhaps a little unkind to Warlocks, mind, as you'll see in the first few seconds of the video above where Brendan and I help Bravo squad crush the opposition, after I throw myself to my death for science.

Definitely for science.

More all-new Destiny footage for you before the beta goes offline today. This time, we check out the Level 4 story mission, "Warmind", hunting for an old AI that used to protect Earth. But the Fallen are looking for it too, and there's a showdown in the Skywatch.

There are some new enemies in this particular mission, the pesky shielded Servitor being one of them. But thankfully we're packing some new weapons as well, including a fusion weapon that narnesses Traveller power and disintegrates enemies like a Spartan Laser crossed with a shotgun.

Mmmmm...tasty.

Destiny's level 3 story mission is the same one we saw in the Alpha. We've plonked both vids here in this post (hit the jump for the alpha gameplay footage) so you can marvel at the similarities and the slight differences. The biggest talking point here? Dinklage's voiceover.

Does the mechanical, vocoder-esque effect improve things? Does it still need some serious work? The "wizard from the Moon" line is gone, but is the script the issue?

To be honest, I'm not sure I care too much given the delicious gunplay, and for my money, the robotic effect more or less does the trick. I don't think this performance is going to win any awards, but it's also still not the final version yet, so there's room for improvement.

The Destiny beta is upon us, and we've got an enormous amount of content coming over the next few days. Whereas the Alpha presented us with a single story mission, there considerably more opportunities to get a feel for the game's narrative here in the beta.

You can check out Brendan's video of Destiny's striking opening scenes and the first playable mission here, and above we've gone and captured the level two mission, titled "Restoration", that sees my Warlock Guardian and the Dinklage Ghost rooting around Old Russia for a warp drive.

Gears of Fable? Oh go on then. Fable Legends has copped a fair bit of flak forits more action-oriented approach to the Fable universe, but there might just be space for a co-op TPS that leverages the IP for fresh purposes.

You can decide for yourself by checking out the 10 minute video we captured at a recent Microsoft showcase. There was no game sound to record due to the in-game audio being pumped out through headphones, so we've stuck in some favourites from the Fable OST.

VIDEO | Sunset Overdrive Gameplay vs Jet Set Radio - Remix

Sunset Overdrive is shaping up to be a blast of chaotic, sandbox fun, filled with madcap mayhem, crazy weapons, and cartoon violence. In short, it's looking like the game that you'd expect an unfettered, unleashed Insomniac to make.

And that's awesome news.

Sadly, however, we weren't able to capture footage directly at a recent showcase event, but I did jump into a half-finished demo with the camera rolling on the screen to snap up a little bit of off-screen gameplay footage. I wasn't able to capture the in-game audio as it was being pumped through headphones, so instead I've spliced it together with some tracks from Jet Set Radio.

Given that the game resembles the lovechild of a bizarre threeway between Crackdown, JSRF, and a packet of Skittles, it seemed fitting.

Will you survive? Such is the question posed by H1Z1, Sony Online Entertainment's upcoming F2P survival sandbox. We'll scavenge for supplies and crafting materials, desperately engage the 'infected' hordes and occasionally secure a vehicle for some post-apocalyptic green laning; all of which features in the brand new slice of gameplay footage.

SOE boss John Smedley has also assured us that snowy environments and dynamic weather are headed to H1Z1 and Planetside 2. It's looking cool, snow joke [you're fired - Ed]

Clearly already looking solid ahead of its Steam Early Access launch, H1Z1 has been picking up a publicity snowball over the last few months, especially since it's also slated to release on PS4 in due time. Let us know what you make of it!

VIDEO | Sexy Demons & Tokyo Terror: The Secret World Issue #9 Brings The Horror!

The Secret World is still the most atmospheric MMORPG ever made. Or, to put it another way, it's bloody terrifying when it wants to be.

I'm currently polishing off our review of The Secret World's long-awaited Tokyo story arc, which has now begun courtesy of Issue #9: The Black Signal, so figured that I'd share some of my misadventures with you in video format. Having recently run through Outlast on Xbox One, I was confident that a quick jaunt through an abandoned parking garage would be a piece of cake, only the cake has already been eaten by murderous ghostly children-that-aren't-any-more oh god no THEY'RE FOLLOWING ME DON'T BLINK

Apologies. Beware major spoilers and disturbingly sexy demon overlords, since this is a story mission. Stay tuned for our full review -- and perhaps some videos narrated in coolly-assured confidence as opposed to nervy adrenaline-soaked rambling -- later this week.
