Saints Row IV and All of Its DLC Gets Re-Elected on PS4 Next Year

We should have known

We were busy typing away about the rather surprising reveal of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, when suddenly, developer Volition decided to throw a slightly less shocking announcement our way.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is Coming to PS4, and It's, Er, a Standalone Expansion Pack

Gone when the morning comes

Well, we didn't see that one coming. As you've no doubt heard, publisher Deep Silver released a Saints Row teaser image over Twitter earlier today, and with developer Volition hosting a panel at this year's PAX convention this evening, it seemed all but assured that the crazy sandbox franchise would be making an...

Talking Point: Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Term worm

Indie is the video game equivalent of Marmite: a sector of the medium so divisive that it’s simultaneously culpable of both dismay and delight. The very website that you’re reading is evidence of that, but we’re not alone: scuffles and skirmishes more heated than the format wars themselves can be attributed to the increasingly...

Taking Sanctuary on PlayStation

Having only just covered Dust: An Elysian Tail, here we have a game from another prominent Xbox 360 developer coming to the PlayStation 4 – and the PlayStation Vita, too.

Dust: An Elysian Tail Flaunts Its Fur on PS4 Really, Really Soon

1080p, 60FPS

There are plenty of people out there who grumble about indie games on the PlayStation 4. Maybe they feel cheated by the lack of original, super polished AAA titles coming out on the next-gen system right now, or maybe they don't feel that indie experiences are pushing their expensive hardware to its limit.

Metal Slug 3 Runs and Guns Its Way onto the PS4, PS3, and Vita

Pixel perfect port

No self-respecting videogame console would be complete without at least a handful of Metal Slug ports to its name, so we're happy to report that Metal Slug 3 will be arriving on all three of Sony's super systems later this year. Recently announced on the PlayStation Blog, the bombastic port will apparently come packed with some...

Review: Tales of Xillia 2 (PlayStation 3)

Tales of Xillia 2 (PlayStation 3)

Cat scratch Ludger

Tales of Xillia 2 is the sequel to last year's successful Tales of Xillia on the PlayStation 3. Much like the previous game, it’s charming, wonderful, and rewarding all at the same time. The worlds of Rieze Maxia and Elympios return as well as most of the gameplay from the original, and being the 14th title in the Tales series,...

Ubisoft Keeps its Blade Hidden by Delaying Assassin's Creed Unity into November

October's a bit lighter

A few months ago, October was looking like this year's most bloated period for new releases, but a few big delays later, and November is beginning to look like 2014's real heavy hitter. It may only be a relatively small delay of two weeks, but Ubisoft has saw fit to push back Assassin's Creed Unity all the same. The next-gen...
