  • Talking Point What Free May 2017 PlayStation Plus Games Are You After?

    Gimme the goods

    T'is that time of the month yet again where we ask you to ponder which PlayStation Plus freebies you want in May 2017. We're expecting the lineup to be revealed this coming Wednesday (26th April) ahead of a 2nd May roll out. Unfortunately the release schedule's currently looking quite barren on that day, so your guess is as good as...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 164

    Post-Easter play sessions

    We're entering the quiet build-up to E3 2017 now, where genuine news slows and teases increase. The number of big new titles also takes a tumble, although there's never any shortage of software on the PlayStation 4, is there? We suspect that the next half-dozen issues of WAYP are going to be more about backlogs, but with...

Sony is the primary marketing partner for Activision's first-person franchise, and it doesn't look like that relationship will be ending anytime soon, so look...

    Review Full Throttle Remastered

    Asphalt and trouble

    Never has the fallibility of memory been clearer than when revisiting video games from the past. It can be surprising just how big the gulf between recollection and reality can be, leaving you to wonder if your brain just might be responsible for some of the greatest video game remasters of all time. As with last year's...

Rather than actually showcase the title, the publisher has instead plumped up for a countdown clock on the franchise's official website. All will be revealed proper at 18:00 BST on 26th April.

    Thank heavens for that! The Hot Shots series has always been a nightmare from a database perspective because rarely do its games ever have the same name across regions. It would appear that Sony's realised that's not the best approach for search engine optimisation, though, as it's decided to name the new PlayStation 4 entry...

    We had a different kind of game in mind when we heard the elevator pitch "music-themed action role-playing game", anticipating some kind of rhythm-based release. Instead, the upcoming AereA is quite literally Diablo with instruments. You'll be able to pick from a variety of composers, each of which use their chosen musical apparatus to...
