  • Poll Are You Happy with May 2017's PlayStation Plus Games?

    Is it really such a strong month?

    With news having slowed to a crawl as the industry preps itself ahead of E3 this summer, it's only fitting that we end the week with a quick and easy poll. It's been a while since we polled you lot on the quality of PlayStation Plus and its 'free' games, but we reckon May's selection is actually one of the more...

  • News Dragon Quest XI Snags a Right Royal PS4 Bundle

    Launching alongside game in Japan

    Despite its presence on the Nintendo 3DS as well, Dragon Quest XI is likely to be a gigantic seller for Sony when it releases this summer on the PlayStation 4.

    About a blob

    There was a period during the PlayStation Portable era where Japan Studio was pumping out some brilliant handheld titles, but they never really got the traction that they deserved. LocoRoco was one such game, a punctual little platformer that looked lovely and played great. And now, in case you missed the memo, it's set to make a...

    Whether or not PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was a good game is up for debate, but should there ever be a successor, it would be fascinating to see what direction Sony took. There's been a bizarre amount of chatter about the series online of late, with a sequel supposedly leaking on 4Chan (hint: it was fake) and now artwork arriving on...

    Flinthook is a prime example of how the execution of an idea is often more important than the idea itself.
