There are a couple of big titles launching this week kicking off today with the next instalment of Dragon Quest and then continuing on Friday with the next big PS4 exclusive release, Spider Man. Feel free to take a look at the trailers and game overviews below.


Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age – PC, PS4


Dragon Quest XI follows a new hero on a quest to discover the mystery of his past and journey to uncover his fate.

This title has been generally very well received with some high review scores. As with all other Dragon Quest titles, it follows the established format but has a new cast, story and a massive new world to explore. This title should be arriving through my post box today so I’ll let you know next week how I get one with it, but by the reviews already out, it’s looking good.


Spider-Man – PS4


This is the one the PS4 community has been waiting for. The Spider-Man franchise is one of only a few comic/movie franchises which has a history of translating well into video games. There have been some excellent Spider-Man games to date, and this looks to be another great instalment. The embargo on reviews has not quite lifted yet but from the trailer and released information it’s looking like a must buy, with all the best spider-man action combined with large open world environment.

I’m sure a copy will be finding its way into my PS4 pretty soon and when it does I’ll let you know if it lives up to the expectations.
