Please Protect Me from the Purgatory of the PS3

Sammy Barker is struggling to turn back time

I feel like a teenager who’s had their iPhone swapped with a spinning top right now. After several months mainly using the PlayStation 4, I’ve decided to go back to the PlayStation 3 in order to clear out some of my backlog – and boy is it torture. There’s no doubt that Sony’s previous...

Killzone Creator Guerrilla Games Finds a New Horizon in Fascinating PS4 Exclusive

Jurassic park

There’s no doubt that the Killzone franchise has divided gamers, but Guerrilla Games has never disappointed from a technical perspective.

KickBeat: Special Edition (PlayStation 4)

Kick it into touch

KickBeat: Special Edition is the re-release of Zen Studios’ rhythm fighting game for the PlayStation 4. Now, you may be asking yourself what a rhythm fighting game actually is – or you may not be. Either way, picture a fusion of Mortal Kombat and DJ Hero, and you’ll more or less have the right idea. Sadly, this game sounds...

Forget P.T., Project Scissors Will Scare You Silly on Vita in 2015

Probably not safety scissors

Drive a car

We still don’t know exactly when Final Fantasy XV’s demo will release, but we do know that anyone who purchases a brand new copy of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD next year will be eligible to download the taster on the PlayStation 4.

Ghost Hunter - Where to Find All 50 Dead Ghosts in Destiny on PS4

Phantom breaker

Destiny stashes much of its lore in Grimoire Cards, so you won’t be jetting around the solar system searching for audio logs and pieces of intel. It does still have collectibles for you to find, however, in the form of fallen Ghosts. There are 50 of these to collect, which will all count towards the ‘Ghost Hunter’ Trophy...

Review: Run Like Hell! (PlayStation Vita)

Run Like Hell! (PlayStation Vita)

The running plan

Thanks to frighteningly ubiquitous smartphones, endless runners have become quite literally a dime a dozen. However, rather than attempting to separate itself from this pack, Run Like Hell! embraces its heritage, taking some serious cues from popular titles in the well-worn genre. But does its adherence to tradition see it take out...

Review: Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate (PlayStation Vita)

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate (PlayStation Vita)

The handheld ultimatum

These days, publisher Koei Tecmo is all but forced to shove its Warriors games onto handheld consoles. With portable devices ruling the Japanese market, it makes perfectly logical sense, and what kind of musou fan would turn down the opportunity to wreck thousands of enemies on a small screen from the comfort of a seat on the...

Smooth moves

Just when you thought fan favourite tough guy Kanji Tatsumi couldn't possibly embarrass himself further, he appears in this new trailer for Persona 4 Dancing All Night sporting a dumb smile and some pretty hilarious moves.

Super Exploding Zoo Is the Bizarre New Game from Hohokum Dev Honeyslug

Wait, what?

Sometimes the sheer brilliance of the name of a game is enough to sell us on it, and no title demonstrates that idea more than Super Exploding Zoo. Developed by the delightfully bizarre folk at Honeyslug, the puzzler sees you attempting to defend the world from an alien invasion by blowing up zoo animals. Yep, you read that correctly...

Praise Bahamut

Those of you that are veterans in the PlayStation Nation may be struggling to believe that Final Fantasy XV is an actual game, but this tech demo by Square Enix proves that the publisher at least has a functional prototype finished after eight long years of work.

Shuhei Yoshida Congratulated Phil Spencer Over Minecraft Acquisition

Building bridges

The console war may be painted as a fierce battleground on the web, but in reality, that’s not the case at all.

In fact, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei...

This Woman Likes Silent Hill Way More Than You Do

No argument here

This particular author may be penning this article while proudly wearing a Pyramid Head t-shirt – we kid you not – but we’ll happily concede that there are much bigger Silent Hill fans in the world.
