Review: Headlander (PS4)

Headlander (PS4)

Stellar

If a time traveller journeyed through time and told us that a 2D Metroidvania title would be one of the best games Double Fine ever released, we'd both scoff in disbelief and question why said time lord didn't tell us something more important, like who wins the US Election – or whether Paul Blart: Mall Cop 3 is ever made. See, on paper,...

Review: Videoball (PS4)

Videoball (PS4)

Balls to the wall

Welcome to the future of electronic sport. Sure, Videoball may not look like a cutting edge PlayStation 4 game, with simple visuals of friendly-looking triangles (which you control) and circles (the titular videoballs themselves) – but thanks to a cunningly refined game engine and simple controls, this is pure addictive fun...

News: Marvel Ultimate Alliance PS4 Isn't a Particularly Heroic Port

Marvel Ultimate Alliance PS4 Isn't a Particularly Heroic Port

Doesn't improve massively upon 2006 original

Marvel Ultimate Alliance and its sequel was excreted onto the PlayStation Store this week, presumably as Activision scrambles to fulfil its contractually obliged quota of comic book-themed releases. And lo and behold, the port kinda sucks. Digital Foundry's dug out its ol' framerate ticker yet again and...

Sony Profits as PS4 Sales Continue to Surge

PlayStation offsets earthquake disaster

Sony is still in the black, though it can thank PlayStation for offsetting the costs inflicted by Japan's recent earthquake disaster. Profits plunged 42 per cent year-over-year in the three month period ending 30th June, with the company racking up ¥56.2 billion ($542 million) in operating income. The...

You'll Be Able To Catch Ape Escape 2 on PS4 Soon

Bananarama

Here's another game that has all but been confirmed to be releasing in the near future thanks to its Trophies leaking: Ape Escape 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 as part of the PS2 on PS4 program, which has recently brought the likes of Psychonauts and The Warriors to the system. Taking a look at the Trophies on Exophase, you'll be a

News: Rollercoaster Dreams Is Theme Park without the Charm

Rollercoaster Dreams Is Theme Park without the Charm

Wheee

An amusement park management sim for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR? It should be a match made in heaven – but Bimboosoft's in-development Rollercoaster Dreams definitely has a ways to go. The title – which is clearly targeting the Theme Park market – seems to have all of the pieces in place, but lacks the charm of Bullfrog's...

Review: Moon Hunters (PS4)

Moon Hunters (PS4)

Full moon

Kitfox Games has created something quite unique with Moon Hunters. At first it appears to be quite a standard action role-playing game with the option to play with up to four players. However, playing the game for just a couple minutes shows you that there are plenty of unique and fresh ideas on display. The most obvious idea on display...

News: Four Years Later and Blizzard Is Still Working on Updates for Diablo III

Four Years Later and Blizzard Is Still Working on Updates for Diablo III

A new patch is incoming

Blizzard's currently working on yet another update for Diablo III, which is set to launch in the relatively near future. Patch 2.4.2 will introduce three new difficulty levels - namely Torment XI, XII, and XIII - and naturally, you'll be able to nab better and better loot as long as you're strong enough to tackle them. The...

News: Corn, Blimey! Catch a Glimpse of Farming Simulator 17 PS4 Gameplay

Corn, Blimey! Catch a Glimpse of Farming Simulator 17 PS4 Gameplay

Hay maker

Farming equipment is genuinely bad ass, as this Farming Simulator 17 gameplay trailer should demonstrate. It shows a lady farmer tending to one of her plots, using various pieces of licensed equipment to plough, sow, fertilise, and harvest some crops. This is a simple growth cycle – but look at that New Holland self-propelled sprayer...

Feature: Here's What You Do in No Man's Sky on PS4

Here's What You Do in No Man's Sky on PS4

Guide to the galaxy

If life's most common question is "Why would anyone support Liverpool?" then "What do you actually do in No Man's Sky?" must be a pretty close second. A query that's got more mileage than your uncle's fudged Ford Focus, it's been adopted by both fans and haters alike. Perhaps recognising that Hello Games hasn't done an...

Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2 Has Giant Namekians

Big green

Good news if you're planning on playing as a Namekian in Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2, as it looks like the fighter's going to feature giant transformations. The title's latest gameplay trailer shows off a load of fresh footage, and if you watch closely enough, you'll be able to pick out a custom Namekian character ballooning in size before...

News: Oh No! Darksiders' PS4 Remaster Has the Worst Subtitle in History

Oh No! Darksiders' PS4 Remaster Has the Worst Subtitle in History

Gamers can't believe this crazy name

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition was a terrible name, but we could appreciate the attempt at wordplay. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition is just plain terrible – though we have the sneaking suspicion that someone at Nordic Games is having a laugh. Warmastered Edition – seriously? C'mon! The game was...

News: Free Suicide Squad Theme Raids the PS4

Free Suicide Squad Theme Raids the PS4

No Joker

Those of you eagerly anticipating the release of Suicide Squad next week may want to download the free theme that's available on the European PlayStation Store right now – and will presumably roll out imminently worldwide. It's a dynamic theme which fuses comic book panels with photographs of the flick's cast. While any theme...

RIME Is Still in Development, More News Coming at Gamescom

Studio has also expanded

The last time we heard from Tequila Works' RIME, things weren't looking up. Sony cut their ties with the game earlier this year after the developer re-acquired the rights to the IP, which threw the question of the title actually releasing into even further mystery. Backed up by the fact that we hadn't seen anything since...

People Really Aren't Happy with August's PlayStation Plus Games

Remember to turn caps lock on

PlayStation Plus announcement day is always good for a laugh, but we doubt that anyone who has to handle Sony's social media accounts is smiling right now. Following today's Plus reveal - you can see the full list of August's games through here - PlayStation fans have grabbed their pitchforks and taken a good old stab...
