Earth Defense Force  Brings Big Bugs to Europe

PS4 and Vita titles creeping overseas

You can't quite beat the appeal of a plunging framerate as billions of bugs infest your high definition display, so we come bearing good news for our European readers: Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair will crawl into the Old World later this year on the PlayStation 4. The game was already...

News: Horizon: Zero Dawn Has the Best PS4 Clouds Since DriveClub

Horizon: Zero Dawn Has the Best PS4 Clouds Since DriveClub

Silver lining

Forget about games like Crackdown 3 – this right here is the real power of the cloud. As part of a presentation at SIGGRAPH 2015, Dutch developer Guerrilla Games briefly touched upon the volumetric clouds that it'll be including in forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn. And while it all gets really technical and a...

Review: Mega Man Legacy Collection (PS4)

Mega Man Legacy Collection (PS4)

Six of the best

Despite Capcom's best efforts to forget that he even exists, Mega Man's popularity with players endures regardless of the lack of fresh outings. Such is the gaming public's adoration of this pint-sized hero that they will gleefully crowdfund spiritual successors (Mighty No. 9, we're looking at you) in lieu of a genuine Blue Bomber...

First Impressions: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Embraces the Past As It Focuses on the Future

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Embraces the Past As It Focuses on the Future

Lean, mean, cybernetic machine

With Call of Duty being the most successful multiplayer shooter franchise in video game history, you would think that betas would've been the norm by now. Instead, each instalment has had infamous issues. Annoying perks such as Juggernaut in Modern Warfare, overpowered weapons like the FAMAS and AK74u in Black Ops,...

Review: Until Dawn (PS4)

Until Dawn (PS4)

Mourning woods

Until Dawn is much better than you may be expecting. The teen horror title – which was originally intended as a PlayStation Move exclusive – has not exactly enjoyed the smoothest path to market, but Sony clearly saw enough potential in the project to keep it alive for this long, and Supermassive Games has delivered. This schlocky...

Feature: Meet the Man with 40,000 PlayStation Trophies

Meet the Man with 40,000 PlayStation Trophies

Platinum unlocked

It's a warm yet rainy evening in New Hampshire, but Michael 'Roughdawg4' Sinclaire is uninterested in the weather. He's got a DualShock 3 controller in hand, and his gaze is fixed on a nearby television screen. White Knight Chronicles, the oft-forgotten PlayStation 3 collaboration between Japan Studio and Level-5, is the focus of...

Round Up: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain PS4 Reviews Take Top Marks

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain PS4 Reviews Take Top Marks

Big boss

The sizzling summer months may be slowly edging towards a conclusion, but things are heating up in the video game release calendar. And few titles come hotter than Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – a game that would be heavily anticipated under ordinary circumstances, but finds itself a likely series swansong for creator Hideo...

News: Puck Off! NHL 16 Scores PS4 Bundle in Canada

Puck Off! NHL 16 Scores PS4 Bundle in Canada

As cold as ice

Ice hockey's a sport that's not particularly, er, popular here in the UK, but we know that our commonwealth cohorts are big fans of the ice-based action. Sony's probably pretty smart announcing a PlayStation 4 bundle for the forthcoming NHL 16, then, which will skate its way into Canadian stores from 15th September for $449.99. The...

News: Lara Croft Doesn't Have to Murder Everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Lara Croft Doesn't Have to Murder Everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider

If looks could kill

Strengthening its similarities to The Last of Us, the forthcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider – which will deploy on the PlayStation 4 next year – can be played non-lethally. You may remember the Gamescom 2015 demo, which showed protagonist Lara Croft brutally eviscerating a slew of guards. Well, embedded below you'll find the...

Review: Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 4 - Escape Plan Bravo (PS4)

Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 4 - Escape Plan Bravo (PS4)

Skin pizza party

Since their respective debuts, Telltale appears to have prioritised Game of Thrones over Tales from the Borderlands. Indeed, the latter's release "schedule" could, at best, be described as inconsistent. The first episode released in November of last year, and now, ten months later, we've just made it to the fourth instalment. This...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 81

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 81

Talk it out

It's just dawned on everyone at Push Square Towers that we've somehow produced 81 issues of WAYP. For starters, it's amazing that we haven't missed an edition yet – but even more incredible is that this remains one of the more popular features on the site. Who'd have thought that something so simple would be so successful? Sammy...
