Opinion: How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

Resogun: Defenders (PlayStation 4)

Offence is the best form of defence

Goodbye doesn't always have to be the saddest word – it can be explosive, too. Resogun: Defenders marks the last of the post-launch expansions for Housemarque's critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 shoot-'em-up, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, it's something of a humdinger.

Hobnobs

It's a brief WAYP this week, as everyone at Push Square Towers is too busy actually enjoying their weekends to talk about it.

Next PS4 Firmware Update Is Not Too Far Out, Says Sony

Already overdue

It's been months since PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 added some significant features – and bugs – to Sony's next-gen system.
