Is It Time for PSone Classics on PS4?

Old-school

This week saw the release of two PlayStation 2 titles on the PlayStation 4: The Warriors and Metal Slug Anthology. The two articles that we wrote confirming these releases went on to become among the most viewed on the website over the past seven days, proving that there's pent-up demand for these retro re-releases.

Hands On: Seeking the Light in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Seeking the Light in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue

Saving the best for last

Second half dramatics

We can hardly believe that we're more than halfway through 2016 already, but at least this year has offered up some good gaming times so far.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 123

Backlog busters

You can always tell it's summer, not because the sun is shining outside, but because WAYP is filled with people playing old games.

Making Settlements a Little More Fun with Fallout 4's Contraptions

They call me the tinkerer

Fallout 4's Contraptions add-on is the kind of downloadable content that a lot of players are going to brush aside. It's not the sort of DLC that'll drag lapsed survivors kicking and screaming back to the Commonwealth, and it's certainly not the kind of add-on that's going to breath hours upon hours of new life into...

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the spectacle of Sony's conference and the banter that accompanied the bad ones – but it's hardly been a vintage...
