This Fancy Final Fantasy XIV PS4 Really Is a Limited Edition

One of a kind

Despite the recent release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the PlayStation 4 is starting to slump in Japan.

One title that may give the next-gen device...

inFAMOUS: Second Son Absorbs New Patch on PS4 Imminently

Fan requested features on the way

Unlike other open world titles, inFAMOUS: Second Son doesn’t feature a dynamic day and night cycle. This means that the time at which you play is heavily dependent on your progress through the campaign, but once you’ve completed it, you’re forced to bask in the Seattle sunshine. Fortunately, developer Sucker...

Review: The Witch and the Hundred Knight (PlayStation 3)

The Witch and the Hundred Knight (PlayStation 3)

Swamp thing

Nippon Ichi Software has a reputation for the absurd and strange, and while The Witch and the Hundred Knight initially seems poised to continue that trend successfully, the game’s humour soon turns dark and indignant – and its minor flaws begin to stack. Make no mistake, there’s a solid action RPG hidden beneath this title’s...

This LittleBigPlanet Themed DLC for Tearaway Probably Isn't an April Fools Prank

A safe bet

While it may be one of the funniest times of the year, April Fools' Day can also be a bit of a nightmare on our end, as a lack of scrutiny can lead to a reporter accidentally posting a prank as real news. What's more, developers and publishers are incredibly reluctant to make any proper announcements, lest they not be taken seriously...

Crab battle

We know what you're thinking: "It's not Wednesday! How blessed I am to be able to vote on another of my favourite weekly brawls!" Or at least, that's what we hope that you're thinking.

North American PlayStation Plus Fires Off Mercenary Kings and Batman: Arkham City

Goodies galore

While PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe only need to deal with a single care package every month, Sony’s North American arm prefers to drip feed users with free content every week. That means that premium members overseas will only be getting access to two of April's complimentary titles tomorrow – but they’re real doozies,...

Ripley's believe it

That we’ve already sneaked through a short sample of upcoming PlayStation 4 survival horror Alien: Isolation says a lot about the game and its developer.
