What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 106

Weekend fighters

Want to know what the worst thing about the weekend is? Trying to come up with an introduction to WAYP. Y'know, this author's seriously considering concocting a copy and paste intro that can be recycled every week. For now, though, we'll simply make a passing comment about the weather – it's a bit drizzly here in the UK. Sammy...

Push Share: What PS4 Screenshots Have You Been Sharing? - Issue 8

What PS4 Screenshots Have You Been Sharing? - Issue 8

Now with added photo contest

Push Share is supposed to be a bi-weekly feature, but this humble editor went and screwed up last Friday by totally forgetting all about it. Absolutely unforgivable, we know, but at least we're back on track this week with some fresh PlayStation 4 screenshots. What's more, to make up for our disgusting blunder, we're...

Round Up: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 PS4 Reviews Start to Sprout

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 PS4 Reviews Start to Sprout

Green, green grass of dope

Critics have started slathering fertiliser on top of their Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 reviews, and we're starting to see the fruits of their labour. A handful of American sites have published reviews for the under-the-radar floral-based foray today, and because we haven't got our copy yet, we've planted them...

A Brief History of Virtual Reality

Alex Boz tours the '90s VR graveyard

With the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR well and truly on the way to our living rooms, virtual reality (VR) is the biggest news in gaming right now. But let's rewind the clock some two and a half decades, back when Sony was working on the Nintendo Play Station and the inventor of the Oculus Rift, Palmer Luckey,...

Feature: What Modes Do You Actually Get in Street Fighter V on PS4?

What Modes Do You Actually Get in Street Fighter V on PS4?

Also, a quick content roadmap

For our money, Street Fighter V is easily the best brawler on the PlayStation 4 – and it may just be one of the greatest fighting games ever made. The sequel's peerless ability to fuse accessibility with tournament tier depth is its true strength, but it does come with a caveat: the single player experience, in its...

Round Up: Street Fighter V PS4 Reviews Rise Up

Street Fighter V PS4 Reviews Rise Up

Round one

It's time to rise up and be counted, as Street Fighter V is almost here. The latest entry in Capcom's uber-popular punch-up property is being pitched as a sort of pseudo-service, and phase one rolls out this week, exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and PC. But with a lack of single player content threatening to steal the series'...

Feature: An Introduction to Street Fighter V's F.A.N.G.

An Introduction to Street Fighter V's F.A.N.G.

Fangs very much

F.A.N.G. – now forever referred to as Fang, thanks – was the final character revealed for Street Fighter V's release. Not many people know a great deal about the lanky weirdo, as he hasn't been available during any beta tests, so allow us to shine a light on Bison's newest sycophant. First thing's first: Fang's really going to...

Hitman PS4 Brings the Franchise Back to Its Golden Years

Our thoughts from the beta

It's safe to say that a lot of people were feeling quite nervous about the annoyingly named Hitman. Its episodic release schedule worried many people, and tensions were high after the disappointing Hitman: Absolution – would Square Enix mess up again? After playing the beta for many hours, however, it seems that...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 105

One more time

Sorry for the late WAYP today, it's been a busy start to Saturday. Doesn't mean you can't jump aboard this train a little late, though, as we're on a one-way trip to weekend gaming heaven. Or something. To be honest with you, these introductions get harder to write every week. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've been on a bit of a walking...

Reaction: Why Sony Won't Deploy PS4 Exclusives on PC

Why Sony Won't Deploy PS4 Exclusives on PC

Well, not many of 'em

Microsoft melted the web with its Quantum Break announcements yesterday. Unfortunately for Remedy, the forthcoming time-shifting affair got nudged to the side, as platform politics ruled the day. For those of you that missed it, the Redmond firm confirmed that the release would be coming to the PC day-and-date with the Xbox...

DriveClub's New City Track Is Stunning on PS4

Trip to the Old Town

DriveClub's latest update is out now, and it's packing more than just the usual under-the-hood tweaks. This time the PlayStation 4 exclusive's been given some new bodywork, in the form of an urban stage named Old Town. You can find the location in the title's Scotland tab, with six short circuit variants to try. As with other...

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...

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...

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. That's right, your favourite voiceover man is back with another top four for you to flagrantly feast on. And unlike previous Januarys, the line-up is a proper corker this time.

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...

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Is an Addictive Monster Raising RPG

Gotta hatch 'em all

We've spent around five hours with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth on PlayStation 4, and we're tempted to say that we're already addicted. Admittedly, the game's first hour or so is a bit humdrum as you're shown the ropes of cyberspace and introduced to several main characters, but it wasn't long before we were hatching digimon...
