You Can Play PS4 with Snoop Dogg at Last

Finally

We can honestly say that we've never had the desire to play games with celebrities, but we suppose that it's an appealing enough idea for some. Either way, Sony's using that concept to do some good with its new PlayStation Heroes application. Available from the PlayStation Store starting from 24th February in North America, the PlayStation...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 56

The power of love

Today is Valentine's Day, which means that you're either going to be very happy, very sad – or completely indifferent. Fortunately, whichever camp you fall into, there are always video games, and, regardless of special occasions, we're here to bring you your regularly scheduled dose of WAYP.

Review: Baboon! (PlayStation Vita)

Baboon! (PlayStation Vita)

Ba-boom!

It would be very easy to dismiss Baboon! based on its first few levels. Initially, it adopts the guise of yet another 'earn three medals' challenge game, only this one is specifically built around dropping bombs to propel your ape avatar from ledge-to-ledge, until you reach the top goal – all while collecting bananas along the way. But...

Review: Super Stardust Ultra (PlayStation 4)

Super Stardust Ultra (PlayStation 4)

Rock 'n' roll

Super Stardust HD drew the dual joystick short straw last generation. Released at a time when the PlayStation 3 was really unpopular, Geometry Wars and its Xbox Live Arcade successor tended to lap up all of the downloadable shoot-'em-up plaudits – despite it never, in this author's opinion, hitting the same highs as Housemarque's...

Project Scissors Transforms into NightCry on Kickstarter

Scissors beat paper

The PSone point-and-click horror title Clock Tower was one that haunted this scribe as a child. While your humble host could handle killing the undead in the Spencer Mansion, we never could quite cope with the aforementioned franchise. Now, spiritual successor NightCry – formerly known as Project Scissors – is staging a...

Bloodborne's Soundtrack Has Stolen Our Hearts

Love song

Okay, so maybe we're jumping the gun a bit early with Valentine's Day jokes, but with Studio Japan sharing live footage of one of Bloodborne's musical tracks entitled "Cleric Beast", we've been swept off our feet. London based Air Studio provided the performance with choir and orchestra in full form, ready to send shivers down your spine...

Just Cause 3's First Trailer Is Far More Serious Than It Needs to Be

Burnin' for you

We're not entirely sure how we feel about moody cinematic trailers. On the one hand, they can work well, providing a sense of atmosphere, while on the other, they can end up seeming far too serious for the actual source material. And let's face it: Just Cause has never been a serious franchise. Cardboard characters and terrible...

Cupid's Baying for Blood in PS4 Exclusive Until Dawn

Fright night

Roses are red, violets are blue; Until Dawn will whisk you away to a cabin in the woods – but there'll be no time to get nude. That's the theme of this brand new trailer for Supermassive Games' forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive at least, as romantic tension paves the way for straight-up tension. "As you may know by now, sees a...

Originally poised to be the headliner of the service's October update, the free version's been postponed for months with little word on an expected time of arrival. It's grasping at straws, but the racer's official Twitter account has told...

Resogun Developer's Making Something 'Explosive' with the Creator of Defender

Smashin'

In many ways, Resogun is the modern day equivalent of Defender, so we're stoked to learn that developer Housemarque has teamed up with the creator of the 1981 arcade classic, Eugene Jarvis, to make something "explosive". The aforementioned industry veteran has a stunning track record, with Robotron and Smash TV also created under his...

You Can Drool Over Final Fantasy XV's Demo Next Week

Road trip

Be honest: are you tempted to pre-order Final Fantasy Type-0 HD purely to get your hands on Final Fantasy XV's playable demo?

How to Upgrade Your PSN Sub Account to a Master Account

Going up in the world

For years, sub account holders on the PlayStation Network have been wrestling with an eternal struggle: should they graduate to a master account and lose all of their Trophies and games, or keep their existing username and deal with the restrictions that the under-18 option entails?
