What Kind of Levels Are Being Made in the LittleBigPlanet 3 Beta?

Play, create, stare

There’s no doubt that LittleBigPlanet campaigns are always entertaining, but the series’ real longevity comes from its user generated content. Boot up any one of Sackboy’s previous outings – barring, perhaps, black sheep LittleBigPlanet Karting – and we guarantee that you’ll be blown away by some of the levels created...

Store Update: 14th October 2014 (North America)

14th October 2014 (North America)

Take your pick

Has anyone else got a better introductory sentence? These weekly PlayStation Store updates come around so quickly that we feel like a broken record at times. Still, we suppose that complaining about that fact gives us a new lead in to this North American refresh, which hosts the likes of The Evil Within and Borderlands: The...

News: You Won't Be Doing Much Video Streaming on PlayStation TV

You Won't Be Doing Much Video Streaming on PlayStation TV

Turn off

Sony may want to check that it’s not breaking any advertising standards here, as the PlayStation TV seems like a pretty poor video streaming system. Back at E3 2014 earlier in the year, a laborious Shawn Layden monologue mentioned that the diminutive device would host plenty of “video and music streaming services”. As it turns out,...

Out This Week: Borderlands, The Evil Within, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, Peggle 2

Borderlands, The Evil Within, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, Peggle 2

Oh my goodness

Holy schnitzel, if you thought that last week’s edition of Out This Week was stacked with an insurmountable number of new releases, then this instalment is in a whole different league. With the summer being comparatively barren for new PlayStation software, we’re not sure why developers big and small have decided to deploy their...

Review: Skylanders: Trap Team (PlayStation 4)

Skylanders: Trap Team (PlayStation 4)

Money trap

Whether you’re a seven-year-old or a 30-year-old, there’s joy to be found in the Skylanders series. Whether it’s the cheesy humour and cute visuals, the simple puzzles and combat, the imaginative heroes and villains, or perhaps the detailed collectible figurines, this uber-popular property has you covered. And capturing your...

Octodad Fumbles as New Patch Causes Save Data Issues

Parental problems

This week marks the return of everyone's favourite father figure, with the launch of two free Octodad: Dadliest Catch scenarios to wreak havoc with. Sadly, while you may be eager to play Doctor and Romeo in these extended episodes, the crustacean isn't the only catch, as players are reporting save data issues following the update...

Review: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Well rounded

First impressions count for a lot in this fickle industry. Whether it's art style, design choices, or DLC policies, it's surprisingly easy to lose all interest in a game that doesn't initially match up to your personal preferences. For Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, this is a big problem, as from the word go, you're bombarded by big,...

News: No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished, apparently

You may recall a rumour that was floating about the internet late last year which suggested that PlayStation 3 classic The Unfinished Swan would be recklessly flinging paint onto the PlayStation 4. The speculations were soon shot down, but we've kept our fingers crossed ever since. Apparently all our appendage-based...

Review: The Evil Within (PlayStation 4)

The Evil Within (PlayStation 4)

Clair de Loony

The Evil Within knows how to make you sweat. Tango Gameworks’ disgusting debut outing will leave you teetering on the precipice of failure with every twisted encounter, causing you to curse your shortage of resources or your character’s lack of superhuman strength. This is a game that, like its survival horror superiors, isn’t...

Killzone: Mercenary Prepares for PlayStation TV with Patch

Show stopper

We’re not entirely sure why Sony’s opted to delay the PlayStation TV for a month in Europe, but those of you in North America will be able to wrap your hands around the nifty little microconsole starting from tomorrow. And in order to celebrate that momentous occasion, Guerrilla Cambridge has deployed a timely patch for Killzone:...

Fencing Sim Nidhogg Strategically Shuffles onto PS4 and Vita This Week

En garde

If there's one thing Sony's system's are sorely lacking, it's games about fencing that feature giant cosmic worms which devour the inferior player. Luckily, Nidhogg is here to fill that hideously underrepresented niche. The inventive indie joins recent PlayStation Plus freebie Sportsfriends as an example of smaller developers making...

Resident Evil TV Series to Rise Following Final Movie

Ada know what to say

Remember those live-action Resident Evil movies? Well, they’re still being made – and now there are plans for a television series to debut following the release of the sixth (and, allegedly, final) cinematic flick. Resident Evil: The Last Chapter is currently being written, and will see all of the franchise's ‘famous’...

News: How Many People Play Destiny on Average Every Day?

How Many People Play Destiny on Average Every Day?

A lot

Browse any website or message board, and you’ll find plenty of people whining about Destiny – but a month removed from its release, the title is still performing incredibly well. In a post on Bungie.net, the developer has revealed that an average of 3.2 million people play the futuristic first-person shooter for approximately three hours...

News: DriveClub Dev Considering Compensation Options for Disastrous Launch

DriveClub Dev Considering Compensation Options for Disastrous Launch

Company had 'confidence' in servers

DriveClub actually performed pretty well in this week’s UK sales charts update, meaning that the racer sold reasonably at retail. That makes its launch issues all the more problematic, because, potentially, thousands of people are stuck with a game that doesn’t work as advertised. This has prompted game...
