WRC 5 review (PS4)

The World Rally Championship has had two series of games dedicated to them, with surprisingly (and confusingly) similar names. WRC 4: FIA World Rally Championship came out in 2013, but WRC 4 had already come out in 2004. Now, with the release of WRC 5, that is finally a thing of the past. The old series never made it past a fourth edition and that means we can talk about upcoming games without the confusion as to what game we’re talking about. Let’s not do this again, people.

Grand Ages: Medieval review (PC)

We first saw Grand Ages: Medieval in the summer of 2014 when we met with developer Gaming Minds during Gamescom – we liked what we saw, and later covered the game in a preview as well. Now the game has been released, and it will soon get a PS4 version as well. A bold move, because strategy games on this type of scale are typically restricted to the PC domain.
