By the Nine, Text Chat Is Coming to The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4

Lol nice1

The Elder Scrolls reveal a lot of things to those who dare to read them, but did they ever predict that Tamriel would be saved by hordes of heroes all mumbling "lol rekt" in unison?

Uscream

Bad news if you're a regular Ustream user on PlayStation 4 as Sony's ditching the steaming platform from the 1st August.

High-Definition Kefka Makes Us Desperate for Dissidia Final Fantasy on PS4

As evil as ever

When it comes to Final Fantasy villains, people are quick to reminisce about the likes of Sephiroth and Seifer, but those who dabbled in the majesty of the main series' final 2D instalment will always jump at the chance to remind fans of Kefka, the deliciously devilish antagonist of Final Fantasy VI.

Okay, We Admit This Destiny Exotic Weapons Rap Is Way Better than Expected

Rhymes of the exotic kind

We feel the need to apologise to YouTube user Duba.

Usually found rapping about what Xur's...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 123

Backlog busters

You can always tell it's summer, not because the sun is shining outside, but because WAYP is filled with people playing old games. That's certainly the case this time, as the people of Push Square Towers casually go about busting their backlogs.

We've known for ages now that the brawler will feature a slow motion mechanic that kicks in when players land a crushing blow or a finishing move, but the title's story mode aims to take this idea even further. As hinted in the game's E3 2016 trailer, Bandai Namco...
