Review: Brut@l (PS4)

Brut@l (PS4)

Rogue leg@cy

Anybody remember those dungeon crawlers from the eighties, the ones based on Dungeons & Dragons and made entirely in ASCII characters? Well, for those not versed in the storied history of tabletop and its transition onto the home computer, these titles were the earliest example of the roguelike. Classics like Moria, Angband, and...

DOOM, Fallout 4 Lead Big Bethesda PSN Sale in North America

Fallout 4's season pass is going cheaper, too

There's a sale on Bethesda titles and downloadable content happening right now on the North American PlayStation Store, covering the company's catalogue on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Obvious standouts include discounts on current-gen games like DOOM, Fallout 4, Wolfenstein: The New Order,...

Blizzard Sounds the Klaxon on Overwatch Olympics Outfits

Ready, steady, go

We wondered when the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were going to cameo in a game – and we're not referring to a certain potty-mouthed Wii U release. Overwatch looks like it's going to be the first, however, as Blizzard's sent a bunch of YouTubers and Twitch streamers packages featuring the shooter's cast of characters in sports gear. A...

PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Does the Monkey on PS4

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

As the great Gwen Stefani once sang: "This s*it is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S." And we suppose that Ape Escape 2 is a bit bananas, seeing as it sees you attempt to scoop up monkeys with a futuristic fishing net. The second game in the series launched on the PlayStation 4 last night as part of Sony's PS2 Classics initiative, where it will...

Video: Dive Deep with 10 Minutes of ABZÛ PS4 Gameplay

Dive Deep with 10 Minutes of ABZÛ PS4 Gameplay

Under the sea

We're never getting another Aquanaut's Holiday – more's the pity – but the beautiful ABZÛ should sate your deep sea diving appetite for the time being. The first game by Giant Squid – founded by Matt Nava of Journey and Flower fame – is a presentational tour-de-force, and it controls pretty darn nicely, too. There's some...

Review: ABZÛ (PS4)

ABZÛ (PS4)

Wintory is coming

It's easy to take ABZÛ's swimming controls for granted. They are, after all, your only means of traversal in the game – it's natural to disregard something so close to home. But if Giant Squid's debut teaches us anything, it's that we should always take time to reflect on things which seem insignificant at first. The secret of...

News: Bethesda Still Working with Sony to Get Fallout 4 Mods on PS4

Bethesda Still Working with Sony to Get Fallout 4 Mods on PS4

It clearly isn't going smoothly

In case you hadn't noticed, mod support for Fallout 4 still hasn't arrived on Sony's system. Mods were originally intended to launch on PlayStation 4 back near the start of summer, but after hitting some sort of snag, the functionality was put on hold. However, after about a month of silence, Bethesda has revealed...

Review: Heart&Slash (PS4)

Heart&Slash (PS4)

Love hurts

Heart&Slash is a very peculiar game, crossing roguelike gameplay with a brawler combat system to create an interesting idea. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where humans no longer exist and robots have taken over, you assume the role of Heart, a kind-hearted but brutally murderous machine with sword in hand, that's trying to escape...

Review: Overcooked (PS4)

Overcooked (PS4)

Frying pan-ic

Too many cooks spoil the broth – or so the saying goes. The fellows at Ghost Town Games may have taken this on-board when developing its debut indie effort Overcooked, with just two people working on this couch co-op cooking game. In the jovial, easy-going title, it's up to you (and a few friends) to run a smooth kitchen, prepare...

SEGA Wants All Numbered Yakuza Games on PS4

But no firm plans right now

Are you eager to get into the Yakuza franchise but not sure where to get started? Series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi has hinted that SEGA wants to bring all numbered entries to the PlayStation 4 following the success of the first game's remake, Yakuza Kiwami. This means that the publisher wants to find a way to port...

UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Sales Increase 94 Per Cent

Up and at 'em

With the school holidays underway, Sony's pumped a ton more cash into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End here in the UK, widely advertising a special price promotion. The game dropped to £34.99 temporarily – though you could get it even cheaper at some stores – and that prompted a 94 per cent surge in sales. It still wasn't enough to...

Playdead's Inside Steps Outside on PS4 This Month

In-'n'-out

Trophies for Playdead's critically acclaimed Inside leaked earlier today, suggesting that it won't be in Limbo on Sony's new-gen system for long. And now VG247 has cited trusted sources who claim that the title will release this month on the PlayStation 4. The title launched on the Xbox One in late June, but that's a win

PS4's Interplanetary Sim No Man's Sky Won't Take Hundreds of Hours to Finish

As first person reaches the centre of the galaxy

Good news for people who lead busy lives: it won't take you hundreds of hours to reach the centre of the galaxy in No Man's Sky, as the person who purchased a pre-release copy for $1,300 achieved it in some 30 hours instead. Sean Murray had said in previous interviews that you could expect to be...

Acclaimed Indie Darling Inside Poised for PS4 Release

Get in-side

Playdead's critically acclaimed Inside garnered much acclaim when it released on the Xbox One and PC earlier this year, prompting us to quiz the Danish developer about the possibility of a PlayStation 4 release. We were told that the studio wants to put the title on as many platforms as possible, and it looks like it's not hanging...
