Destiny: The Taken King PS4
With Bungie rumoured to be ditching paid DLC in favour of cosmetic IAP, it must find new ways to keep players on the hook. Its work to date has been exceptional, with a steady flow of events and hidden exotic weapons. Just as the pace seemed to be dipping, a masterful Halloween event arrived. When we were done with that, Trials Of Osiris returned. Great stuff, but we need to be playing other things right now. Bungie, can you dial it back a bit?
DriveClub Bikes iOS
A year since launch, DriveClub remains one of the most beautiful and thrilling racing games out there, and now you can zip around its picturesque tracks on terrifyingly powerful bikes thanks to Evolution’s latest update. The machines look, sound and feel fantastic, squirming under acceleration and screaming as you open the throttle, while new events require you to pull wheelies and endos for points.
Until Dawn PS4
As the nights draw in, we revisit some bad choices in Supermassive’s thriller. While a few jump scares have lost their power for being expected, tracing new pathways and trying to prevent unnecessary bloodshed is still a nervy task, especially with a seasonal pumpkin hunt to get us scouring the dark corners we might otherwise avoid. Steadyhanded experience still can’t prevent a few gory ends, either, fresh what-ifs unfurling like the butterfly wings that mock us so.
