DriveClub Developer to Roll Out New Game Update to Improve Online Issues

"We're working around the clock"

Even though DriveClub’s issues are slowly edging into ‘unacceptable’ territory as far as we’re concerned, we suppose that developer Evolution Studios does at least deserve credit for providing updates on the game’s progress every 24 hours. That’s surely something, right? Sigh. Seriously, though, the...

Saints Row Gats Out of Hell a Little Earlier Than Anticipated on PS4, PS3

Hell froze over

As someone that wanted to record a concept album on the seven deadly sins , we’re glad that a studio with actual talent is tackling the idea. Saints Row IV’s upcoming expansion, Gat Out of Hell, will boast seven firearms straight out of Satan’s weapon closet – and the brand new trailer embedded below gives you a quick look at...

Your Custom Character's a Bit of a Badass in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Don't mess with the best

We're only a month away from the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it seems like developer BioWare is starting to go all out with promotional material for its open world RPG.

Don't Starve: Giant Edition (PlayStation Network - Vita)

The mysterious beyond

Our review for roguelike survival title Don't Starve and its Reign of Giants expansion discussed the gaming equivalent of Marmite. With its unforgiving, trial-and-error gameplay, it will either leave you in utter frustration, or hook you like fellow crafting sim MineCraft. But with the title now available on the PlayStation...

Are You Good Enough? The PlayStation League Launches This Week in Spain

Gaming just got serious

Venture into any video game message board, and you’ll realise that people already take this industry way too seriously. Still, in order to instil a little more anger into an already quite hostile pastime, Sony has revealed the Official PlayStation League in Spain – an eSports-esque competitive ladder for those with...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Release Date Playing Dead a Little Longer

You may have herb otherwise

Capcom has put a bullet in the cranium of rumours regarding Resident Evil: Revelations 2’s release date. Speculation caused by a PlayStation 4 pre-order page on the PlayStation Store overnight prompted dozens of publications to report that the episodic survival horror spin-off will start in February, but the Japanese...

Alright, We Admit That This Destiny Easter Egg Is Bloomin' Amazing

Spook cave

Destiny may not be this editor’s favourite game in the world, but your humble host will always accept when something’s awesome – and this is awesome. Remember the futuristic shooter’s first ever Loot Cave that was patched up towards the end of September? Well, now it’s haunted. No, seriously. If you head to the location in...

Weirdness: What if the PS4 Was a Really Nifty Laptop?

What if the PS4 Was a Really Nifty Laptop?

Forget your MacBook Air

There are people that don’t have much spare time – and others that have way too much. One such talented individual is Ed Zarick, a self-taught engineer who may have abnormal amounts of free time, but is at least putting it to good use. Having previously designed the Xbook – a portable Xbox 360 for those out of the...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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.

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,...
