Review: Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (PS4)

Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (PS4)

Legends in the making

Hiromu Arakawa's re-imagining of Japanese novel series The Heroic Legend of Arslan is a great fit for a Warriors title: it's packed full of huge battles between warring nations and peppered with memorable characters. We've got a promising base for an Omega Force developed hack and slasher, then, but does Arslan: The Warriors of...

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders (PS4)

Elementary, my dear Hastings

If you go into Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders expecting the next LA Noire or Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, you'll be sorely disappointed. But if you pick up this police procedural with the hope of a slightly charming puzzle whodunnit with some good game mechanics, you may be pleasantly surprised. Like all...

Review: Firewatch (PS4)

Firewatch (PS4)

Hey there, Delilah

Firewatch is a game about rambling. You'll spend much of Campo Santo's outdoorsy adventure navigating the Wyoming wilderness on your lonesome, chatting with a lady who you've never met over your handheld radio. Forget the walking simulator – this is very much a walkie-talkie simulator. But if you go down to the woods today, can...

Unravel PS4 Reviews Reveal EA's Epic Yarn

String thing

Yarny, the now iconic Unravel protagonist, stole hearts at E3 last year – and he's about to, well, unravel his inaugural yarn on your PlayStation 4. EA opted not to send us this one, so you're going to have to make do with other assessments until we post our own. The response seems mixed, mind – as you may have anticipated...

Sherlock Holmes Interrogates the Devil's Daughter on PS4 in May

Holmes alone

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments proved a very pleasant surprise on the PlayStation 4, so we're practically salivating at the prospect of an imminent return to Baker Street. It's good news, then, that BigBen Interactive has pulled out its magnifying glass and settled upon a 27th May release date for Frogwares' latest murder...

Capcom Copyright Suggests PS4 Exclusive Deep Down Isn't Dead Yet

A light in the darkness

You remember Deep Down, don't you? A PlayStation 4 exclusive from Capcom, the game was originally announced back in February 2013, but we've heard nothing about it for quite some time. Indeed, it came to light that the Japanese company was having real trouble with its new-gen Panta Rhei engine, which led to many, including...

Epic Street Fighter 5 CG Trailer Brawls In

Clench your fists in anticipation

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Hints and Tips for a Future Hokage

Common sensei

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 isn't your traditional fighting game, but that fact in itself means that there are plenty of nuances to discover and master on your way to becoming an unstoppable shinobi. With this hopefully handy hints and tips guide, we're aiming to give anyone new to the series a head start, while perhaps...

Review: Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (PS4)

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (PS4)

Bad Marx

What's most puzzling about Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia is who its target audience is. Anyone who didn't like the previous two games has no reason to play this, yet because of the carbon-copied formula, anyone who did like the previous two games has no reason to play it either, because it's quite literally same thing. What's...

Top 4 PlayStation Games - January 2016

Witness this

It's already February, can you believe it? Nah, me neither – but at least this upsetting event means that it's Game of the Month time.

Review: Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo (PS4)

Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo (PS4)

Loeb and behold

Few studios have supported the PlayStation 4 quite like Milestone. Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo represents the racing specialist's fifth release on the new-gen format, with three more due this year alone. However, despite the prolific nature of the Italian outfit's output, this off-road simulator has clearly been given ample attention...

News: The Internet Reckons DOOM's PS4 Box Art Is Bad

The Internet Reckons DOOM's PS4 Box Art Is Bad

And, for once, the Internet is right

In concept, DOOM couldn't possibly appeal less to this author's tastes. For starters, it's more heavy metal than the doodles on a teenage misfit's pencil case, but it's also one of those games where the shooting's only ever going to be the draw – we're not expecting anything in the way of story at all. Despite...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 104

Pasta master

Thinking up introductions to WAYP really is the bane of this author's week. It's immensely challenging trying to dream up new things to talk about in this space, but sadly it's part of the job. Today, your humble host is going to mention Spaghetti Bolognese, as it's something that Kell mentioned in his submission. Is there a more...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Awakening (PS4)

Splish splash, havin' a bloodbath

With seemingly every game getting in on the Season Pass trend – up to and including LEGO Marvel's Avengers – it's becoming increasingly difficult to be excited by DLCs these days. Some games, such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, have lovingly crafted expansions filled with content, while others games seem to suffer...
