How Does The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Look and Run on PS4?

Witching business

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been bathed in critical acclaim over the last week or so, but one question that continues to pop up around the web concerns the game's performance on the PlayStation 4. Various reviews from other publications state that there are noticeable frame rate issues, and that bugs and glitches rear their ugly...

Rule Britannia

Victorian England is very much back in video game vogue. Following in the period footwear of The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne, publisher Ubisoft has revealed Assassin's Creed Syndicate – the first London-based outing in its uber-popular alternate history franchise.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PS4 Reviews Echo Across the Land

The hunt is on

With the smell of blood in the air and the corpses of monsters littering the ground, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has finally been stabbed, skewered, and sliced in half by critics as they attempt to find out what makes CD Projekt Red's ambitious current-gen project tick.

On This Day 20 Years Ago, Sony Dropped the Mic at the First Ever E3

A sign of things to come

Sony's no stranger to dropping the microphone at E3 conventions. For many of you, ex-SCEA president Jack Tretton's used games beatdown will be fresh in the memory – but the affable executive was merely reading from a PlayStation playbook that was written by his predecessors many years prior. On this very day 20 years...

Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Yuna you want it

It's a bit of a filler week here on Planet PlayStation, as a storm labelled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt lurks on the horizon. There's no doubt that CD Projekt RED's hotly anticipated role-playing release is the title that's on everyone's lips, and so proceedings are looking a little light this time out. To be fair, though, there's no...

Geralt the grey

This week will be remembered as the one in which The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fever set in. Associate editor Robert Ramsey has been uploading every video and image under the sun, and much to this author's amazement, you lot keep darn well clicking on them. Sony also sent a few ripples through the industry by announcing that it won't be...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 67

Red faced

Whoops! This author totally forgot about WAYP this week, meaning that he was forced to send an embarrassed email to the rest of the team this morning, begging for submissions. Fortunately, a handful of scribes followed through, which means our weekend feature is still yet to miss a week. This is impressive form considering how forgetful...

Game of the Month: April 2015

April 2015

Fatalities and shovels, not necessarily in that order

Oooh, those bloody indies, eh? Ruining everyone's fun with their SNES graphics and their obsession with pop culture references. "We're not ripping off old games!" they cry. "We're paying homage! It's different!" Meanwhile, the stoic and the knowledgeable among us shake our heads in disgust as...

What Is Dragon Age: Inquisition's Free Black Emporium DLC Exactly?

Myths and legends

Brrrr, the spooky Black Emporium is back in Dragon Age: Inquisition as free DLC this week. The location, which generally houses a bunch of rare items for you to buy, first appeared in Dragon Age II where it roughly offered the same services that it does now. Ruled over by a rather spooky merchant named Xenon the Antiquarian,...

Will Tales of Zestiria Make the Journey to PS4?

Heads or Tales

We've said it once and we'll say it again: Bandai Namco would be crazy not to port Tales of Zestiria to the PlayStation 4. The Japanese action role-playing game released on the PlayStation 3 back in January in its homeland, and it's slated to hit store shelves at some point this autumn in the West – but it doesn't take a genius to...

You Should Stop Pre-Ordering Games

Sammy Barker's against this scary trend

We've got a problem, readers – and it pertains to pre-ordering games. I never used to be opposed to this practice: I'd regularly drop a fiver at my local GAME on titles that I was looking forward to, and would waltz home happily with a receipt and a pre-order pack – the DVD that came with Metal Gear...

How Does The Elder Scrolls Online Beta Look and Run on PS4?

Plus, our final thoughts

After absolutely hammering The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited PlayStation 4 beta virtually all weekend, we're actually a bit sad to see it go. Our jaunt back into Tamriel has been an enjoyable one, despite the fact that it never truly wowed us. Perhaps this is another case of keeping expectations relatively low,...

Mixed feelings

Don't pull that face. Yes, we know Push Rewind is very much a Sunday night staple – but this weekend was an abnormally busy one for everyone in the office, so cut us some slack. It goes without saying, then, that there's a lot to recap in this week's feature, including the announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Are you...
