Don't Want to Buy God of War III PS4? Play It in LittleBigPlanet 3

Sacktastic

It's been a little while since we posted about a LittleBigPlanet 3 level, but this God of War III adaptation really is something else. Released to coincide with the PlayStation 4 version of Sony Santa Monica's deity destroying epic, this burlap adaptation features a series of arena battles against Hades, Hercules, and, of course, Zeus...

PlayStation Employees Pick God of War III's Best Moments

Spoilers, obvs

God of War III will finally swing onto the PlayStation 4 this week. And while we're busy beavering away on a review for you – we finally got our copy, by the way – we figured that this video should get you in the mood. In it, various PlayStation employees from Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida all the way through to...

Rumour: Tron: Escape Parks Its Lightcycle on PS4

Tron: Escape Parks Its Lightcycle on PS4

Trip the light fantastic

Someone get Daft Punk on the line: there's a new Tron game in production for the PlayStation 4. Well, that appears to be the case anyway, as a listing for a release named Tron: Escape has been spotted on a Brazilian ratings board. It's coming to the PlayStation 4 apparently – even though it's the first that we've heard...

Review: Godzilla (PS4)

Godzilla (PS4)

Monster mashed

If you think of cheesy old Japanese movies when someone mentions Godzilla, then Godzilla on the PlayStation 4 may be for you. It's steeped in references to the films which saw men smash up model cities in big rubber lizard suits, and heck, it even plays like one. The problem, though, is that if you don't have a hint of nostalgia for...

News: Just How Good Is DriveClub's Lighting on PS4?

Just How Good Is DriveClub's Lighting on PS4?

Pretty darn good

We've probably long passed the point where we should be praising DriveClub's visuals, but it's an agonisingly slow news day and we figured that this clip was worth a post. Prior to the racer's servers exploding, developer Evolution Studios talked a lot about the title's dynamic lightning and volumetric clouds – but what do these...

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Will Boast a Brutal Difficulty Tier on PS4

But less bullet sponges

If you're one of the three people in the world that didn't break a sweat at Uncharted's otherwise impossible Crushing mode, then you may be pleased to hear that an even more brutal difficulty option will be making its way into Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. We're working off second-hand information here, but Kotaku...

Soapbox: Why I Love Shenmue

Why I Love Shenmue

Sammy Barker recalls his history with Yu Suzuki's hit series

I don't remember the day that the snow turned to rain, but I do remember when I first learned about Shenmue. I must have been no more than 11-years-old at the time, and I'd been bought a copy of EDGE magazine. It had one of those customary end-of-year features spotlighting all of the...

Square Enix Is Bringing The Big Guns to Gamescom 2015, Including Final Fantasy XV

New info and announcements incoming

Gamescom 2015 is looking to be a big event for Square Enix. The Japanese publisher is bringing all of its heavy hitting, upcoming releases to the German expo, including the still elusive Final Fantasy XV. Noctis and the gang will apparently be on show during several 'exciting stage presentations', and there'll...

News: Here's Your First Look at Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4

Here's Your First Look at Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4

1080p, 60 frames-per-second

How does Uncharted 2: Among Thieves look on the PlayStation 4? Honestly, a lot like you remember it. Meristation has got its grubby mitts on four or so minutes of that E3 2009 moment running on Sony's new-gen system in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, and it's sure looking slick. It's still very much the same game, though...

Pre-Order Journey on PS4 and Get a Typically Pretty Theme

Coming to cross-buy users, too

The PlayStation Store's got quite a few decent PlayStation 4 themes knocking around, but this static Journey background's bound to look rather good. Sony Santa Monica Studio announced on Twitter that you'll be able to nab the theme by pre-ordering the sensual adventure on PS4. The new-gen port releases on the 21st...

DONTNOD Applying Final Touches to Life Is Strange: Episode 4

Arcadia wait

It's been quite some time since the previous episode of Life Is Strange released – and what a cruel cliff-hanger developer DONTNOD left us on – so it's probably time we got an update on the Parisian outfit's progress with Episode 4. Fortunately, it's confirmed that while the new instalment won't be arriving this week as expected,...

Review: Astebreed (PS4)

Astebreed (PS4)

X-cellent times

Astebreed is a port of a game that released last year on the PC. Don't let that give you the wrong idea, though: this is about as far from a stereotypical PC game as you could imagine – XCOM it ain't. Instead, it's a shooter that wouldn't be out of place in a late nineties or early noughties arcade. So much so, in fact, that we...

Shenmue III Smashes $5 Million Milestone

Way cool

Shenmue III may have struggled during the middle part of its crowd funding campaign, but it's really flying right now. Following the release of this morning's new trailer, the title has raised a further $100,000 on Kickstarter – and has crossed the all-important $5 million milestone as a consequence. This means that the Character...
