  • News Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers European Release Date Emerges

    Courtesy of a fresh trailer

    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers may not have the snappiest of titles, but in our view it's a top notch game, earning 9/10 in our review.

    Those little scamps

    The announcement of Sonic Lost World's Wii U and 3DS exclusivity, as part of an agreement between Nintendo and SEGA, was possibly the biggest news to come out of the most recent Nintendo Direct.

We rationalised that Conroy would probably appear as the grisly old...
