Review: Tearaway Unfolded (PS4)

Tearaway Unfolded (PS4)

Card to beat

Leave it to Media Molecule to find a purpose for all of those gadgets that Sony stuffed into the DualShock 4 controller. Tearaway Unfolded, a remixed edition of the Guildford-based developer's underappreciated PlayStation Vita exclusive, may feature a papery protagonist named either Iota or Atoi, but it's the PlayStation 4's input...

Game of the Month: What Were the Best PlayStation Games of August 2015?

What Were the Best PlayStation Games of August 2015?

Dumb teenagers, space battles, pirates, and raptures

Time certainly flies, as evidenced by the fact that it's somehow September. Yeah, we don't understand it either, but we suppose that we have to go ahead and announce August's Game of the Month anyway. Leading steadily into the holiday rush that's about to hit Push Square Towers like a freight...

PS4 Firmware Update 3.00 Beta Invitations Are Out

What are you doing here?

You may want to quickly check your emails before reading on, as Sony has been sending out invitations to the PlayStation 4 firmware update v3.00 beta throughout the course of the day. The platform holder opened registrations to the system software test late last month, so if you applied, there's a good chance that you may...

Discover Destiny's New Court of Oryx Battles Right Here

Round table

Your Wednesday can't possibly be complete with a new Destiny: The Taken King stream, and while we forgot about last week's live event, we're making damn sure that we don't this time. The focus for today's stream is on the Court of Oryx, colossal battles that occur in public spaces. Join us live from 19:00PM BST for all of the latest...

Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (PS Vita)

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (PS Vita)

Size doesn't matter

You're almost spoiled for choice when it comes to Warriors games on the PlayStation Vita, since just about every slice of musou madness to release on home consoles over the last few years has ended up on Sony's diminutive device as well. Generally speaking, the handheld editions of these chaotic brawlers never quite live up to...

Killzone: Shadow Fall's PS4 Price Shot to Pieces on EU PlayStation Store

Helgasp

Killzone: Shadow Fall sure has its critics, but there are things to enjoy about this PlayStation 4 exclusive shooter. And if you haven't got around to the launch title just yet, Sony's discounted it on the European PlayStation Store this week, brining the price of entry down to just £11.99. That's not bad, and with the Season Pass selling...

Sony's Given the North American PlayStation Store a Makeover

Spruced up

Don't quote us on this, but one of the things that Sony touted about the new PlayStation Store when it rolled out on the PlayStation 3 was its ability to adapt the design without needing to deploy firmware updates. It appears to have taken advantage of this functionality, as the online plaza has been given a bit of a spring clean in...

Japanese Sales Charts: Until Dawn and Dragon's Dogma Online Give Us Something to Write About

New titles boost PS4 sales

After what seems like weeks of being unable to write about anything remotely interesting happening in the Japanese sales charts, fresh releases have finally hit PlayStation platforms. Choose-your-own-horror Until Dawn slashed its way into sixth place in the software charts, selling 17,472 copies, while the highly...

Destiny's Co-Op Strikes Are Going to Be Tweaked for the Better in The Taken King

Extra reputation and better loot

We've lost count of how many ways that The Taken King is supposedly improving Destiny, so we'll just go ahead and throw this one onto the pile that seems to be growing by the day as we rapidly approach the expansion's 15th September release date. Confirmed on Twitter by the title's executive producer, Mark...

Kojima Says Thanks in an Emotional Metal Gear Solid V Video

"My energy comes from the players"

The below video may seem like a goodbye, but Hideo Kojima is clearly confident in what he's accomplished with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The miniature documentary lasts around ten minutes, and covers many angles of the newly released blockbuster as well as Kojima's involvement with it. It's also got...

1st September 2015 (North America)

The phantom pain

Another week, another gigantic update on the North American PlayStation Store. Of course, you already knew that because we're a little late posting the content drop – but just in case you missed it, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is the highlight this time. It's not, by any stretch, the only game on the itinerary, though,...

1st September 2015 (Europe)

The drop

Kept you waiting, huh? Oh, we've already used that one? Alright, we'll quit recycling that quote and get to the point: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is without doubt the biggest new arrival in this week's European PlayStation Store update. That should tell you a little about the magnitude of the sequel, as Mad Max, Grow Home, and Sup

London's Looking Lavely In Assassin's Creed Syndicate's Newest Gameplay Trailer

Mmmm, smog

Ah, London. An enjoyable city if you can withstand the crowds, the stinky public transport, and the complete lack of decent manners from anyone who isn't being paid in tips, and we dare say that it's looking rather fetching in Assassin's Creed Syndicate's latest arty trailer. Indeed, you can tell that we're getting closer to the game's...

Star Wars Battlefront Beta Soars to PS4 Next Month

In a galaxy not so far away

Can't wait for your first taste of Star Wars Battlefront? There's good news for you, then, because the first-person shooter will be landing a PlayStation 4 beta in early October.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's Getting Torn Apart for Its Ridiculous Pre-Order Strategy

YouTube trailers blasted

We feel a bit sorry for the team at Eidos Montreal - the studio behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. They're creating what looks to be another solid entry in the franchise, but the game's been overshadowed by its recently revealed pre-order strategy. For those that are out of the loop, publisher Square Enix is adopting a...

Here's Mad Max's Huge Open World Map From End to End

That's a lot of dust

Mad Max has had the misfortune of releasing on the same day as one of the most highly anticipated titles of 2015, and although we doubt that it'll be able to outperform Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain when it comes to sales, it still looks like a decent enough open world romp all the same. And, as with any game that's...
