Did you play Wipeout on the original PlayStation? Do you like going fast? Do you like going fast in the future? If you answered yes to any of those questions, Wipeout Omega Collection is about to fill your entire August with vision-blurring speed. This game is actually a bundle of three lovingly remastered products - Wipeout 2048, Wipeout HD, and the Wipeout HD Fury expansion. They're some of the best-looking games you can play on PS4, and you can even enjoy eye-watering virtual reality support if you have a PSVR headset.

Lots of video games are about killing Nazis, but few are about sending a single bullet precisely into the left testicle of a Wehrmacht officer through a window and from roughly a half-mile away. If you've never played the Sniper Elite games, you could think of them as sort of like war-era Hitman games. The comparison is especially apt in Sniper Elite 4, as a series of little worlds open up with ample opportunities for execution as you survey their hidden corners. Unlike Hitman, you don't have to worry so much about innocent bystanders. They're all Nazis!
