Here's a Better Look at Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's Newest Fighter

Isn't it past your bedtime?

Described in her very own trailer as a "super secret fighter chick", Honoka is 18-years-old and likes wearing a single glove. In all seriousness, though, she looks like a pretty good addition to the cast, and she sports some powerful-looking combos in the video that we've embedded. Revealed in yesterday's Famitsu, the...

14th January 2014 (Europe)

Dead kings

Parts of the UK are snowed in today, so it's a good job that you don't need to go outside to shop at the PlayStation Store. To be fair, this week's shelf refresh doesn't have a whole lot to shout about, with Joe Danger 2: The Movie and add-on packs for Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 being the only real highlights. Do you see...

Rock steady

Sony has readied your PlayStation Vita for the flurry of bad weather that's on the way, as firmware update v3.36 is available now.

Fill Your Face in Fat Princess: Piece of Cake on PS Vita

Sugar and spice

Who doesn't like a nice piece of cake? Whether it's a bold slab of Battenberg or a silky slice of Red Velvet, a well baked gateau will always get on well with the ol' gnashers. Of course, the majority of us know to stop eating when our stomach feels sore, but Fat Princess – the star of several PlayStation titles – has less...

DmC: Definitive Edition for PS4 Unleashes Its Combo Earlier Than Expected

You Dante say

DmC: Definitive Edition will be launching for the PlayStation 4 a week early, Capcom has revealed. That's right, you'll be able to listen to all of not-Dante's unbearably angsty quips on 10th March rather than the originally planned 17th March. The reason for the change is unclear, but we suspect that the aforementioned protagonist's...

Sony Chucks The Last of Us Remastered in $399.99 PS4 Packages

Can't be for nothing

Believe it or not, the PlayStation 4 is already over a year old, and while sales are extremely strong, we're rapidly approaching that point where Sony needs to add value to its box in order to maintain momentum. Fortunately, the manufacturer's got the memo, as it's thrown The Last of Us Remastered into its bog-standard 500GB...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Explores Its Dark Side

No one is safe

There's clearly going to be a darker side to The Order: 1886 than we've seen so far, as a lot of the game's European commercials have had a horror vibe. This new one named 'Bobby Paige' is a particularly petrifying affair, as a child recites a rhyme regarding the titular lout's transition into a lycan. More of this sort of thing,...

13th January 2015 (North America)

Sweet 'n' tasty

We're now well into January, but the PlayStation Store is yet to wake from its post-Christmas slumber. That's ok, though, because this week is all about quality over quantity – and with Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, and, er, Brandish: The Dark Revenant in the pipeline, who could possibly argue? Here's what...

You Need to Complete Quick-Time Events in Yakuza Zero to Answer Telephones

New video is NSFW

It's not often that we watch a 19-minute trailer for a game and are left gob-smacked by a mere 60 seconds of it, but that's what's happened with Yakuza Zero's latest video. As you've probably guessed from the headline, series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu will have to complete a quick-time event to properly answer a telephone, and...

Fight the Dying Light with New Book Based on Techland's PS4 Game

Reader beware

Transmedia storytelling always seems forced, but there's just enough plot in properties like Mass Effect and The Elder Scrolls to make it work. Polish developer Techland isn't exactly best known for its storytelling, but that hasn't stopped Warner Bros from going all-in and commissioning a novel based on its forthcoming parkour-'em-up,...

Mortal Kombat's resident hat model will be switching out his smooth headgear for something a little more rugged in the forthcoming Mortal Kombat X.

On the rob

Re-releases are all the rage right now, but this one is so low-profile that we'd forgotten it was even happening in the first place. PSU reports that Best Buy has slapped a 21st April release date on Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, the PlayStation 4 update of Overkill Software's acclaimed robbery simulator. That's a Tuesday so could be...

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's New Diva Is Dressed Exactly as You'd Expect

Saved by the bell

We're guessing that it was a late Friday afternoon when Team Ninja decided upon Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's new character. "Before we head home, guys, we just need to come up with a bonus brawler to make our forthcoming PlayStation 4 re-release look like real value," one executive likely said, sitting around a large table...
