Slender: The Arrival stalks ratings for PS4, Xbox One, Wii U

October 25th, 2014

You can’t escape Slenderman. Even if you unplug your old consoles and huddle under stronger machines, you’re still not safe. That’s what new ratings from PEGI (Europe’s content rating board) suggest anyway, as a 12-and-up grade has been assigned to Slender: The Arrival‘s sudden appearance on PS4, Wii U and Xbox One.

Release dates included in the ratings range from October 23 to October 24, which seems … wrong, given the current-gen port’s absence from Europe’s digital marketplaces. Majesco Europe Limited is listed as the The Arrival‘s publisher in each content rating however, so at least that part reflects reality.

Brave souls can also venture into The Arrival‘s creepy woods on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac, but we propose joining our cowardly sanctuary under the bed, where we’re definitely safe and none of life’s monsters can ever get us. Well, except for the one that lives down here …

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate monster spotlight: Zamtrios, the Monster Shark

October 25th, 2014

We’ve seen how the Zamtrios was inspired by real-life sharks on our #SharkWeek special, and we even touched briefly on its subspecies Tigerstripe Zamtrios; now it’s time to take a closer look at the actual Zamtrios and what it does in the game.

Will you dare to stare the monster shark in the eyes?

For starters, I know the image above makes the Zamtrios look quite deadly (and it is), but don’t worry too much. When calm, it doesn’t have that sharp icy armor covering its body
