Soapbox: Why Rocket League Is Perfect for Me

Why Rocket League Is Perfect for Me

Ryan Oehrli has re-discovered his love of local multiplayer

I've never been athletic. I was born with hilariously bad eyesight, my coordination is far below average, and, to be frank, I just don't like sports. As a kid, whenever my Dad would drag me out to the back yard to play catch with him, I would protest, because I knew that I wouldn't catch...

Trading Blows in the Street Fighter V PS4 Beta

Execution, revolution, evolution

Street Fighter IV had a good run.

The Witcher III's PS4 Patch, Shenmue III, and Tons of Reviews

Hearts on fire

It's been yet another sleepy week on Planet PlayStation, aside from one noteworthy event: Shenmue III has been funded and is now officially in production for the PlayStation 4.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 76

Let's go round again

And just like that, it's the weekend. To be honest, your humble host is feeling a bit drained after the excitement – and subsequent late night – of the Shenmue III Kickstarter, so you'll find no witty comments within this drawn out pre-amble. Then again, we exhausted our selection of those about... Oh, two years ago, didn't...

Why I Love Shenmue

Sammy Barker recalls his history with Yu Suzuki's hit series

I don't remember the day that the snow turned to rain, but I do remember when I first learned about Shenmue. I must have been no more than 11-years-old at the time, and I'd been bought a copy of EDGE magazine. It had one of those customary end-of-year features spotlighting all of the...

The Witcher 3 PS4 Patches, Rocket League, And Not a Whole Lot Else

Say what you want

If the industry was ever going to take a week off, it picked the right one. Push Square Towers has been too busy perched in front of the tennis to talk about video games – but given the overall winners, this author kinda wished that he hadn't bothered. In all seriousness, it's been a quiet few days on Planet PlayStation. Still,...
