  • Rumour Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Spotted Online


    Activision may be prepping a PlayStation 4 remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. A listing for the game has been spotted on Amazon Italy, and as we all know, online retailer listings can sometimes point towards an imminent announcement. Interestingly enough, the page has the game down for release on the 30th April, but seeing as...

    Review Beast Quest

    A peasantry affair

    With over 11 years' worth of material to draw inspiration from, a video game adaptation of the Beast Quest franchise arrives with a somewhat decent amount of potential. Telling tales of mythical creatures and the heroes that slay them, does the series’ first attempt on consoles go down in the history books with a lasting legacy...

  • Soapbox Sony Has Become Far Too Quiet

    Enjoy the silence?

    Actions speak louder than words, but I still can’t help feeling that Sony’s become far too quiet over the past few years. At the start of the PlayStation 4 era, this was a company that was firing on all cylinders when it came to community outreach; Worldwide Studios executive Shuhei Yoshida was one of the biggest names on...

  • Rumour Could Cyberpunk 2077 be a PS4 and PS5 Game?

    The future is now

    CD Projekt Red has recently spoken at the Pareto Securities Gaming Seminar 2018, and one specific comment has caught the attention of Cyberpunk 2077 fans. On one of the slides during the developer's presentation, it states that the elusive game will be built on "current and next generation technology". Now, you'll need to take...

    Review Devil May Cry HD Collection

    Devil Never Cry

    Devil May Cry is a franchise that revolutionised hack-and-slash gaming back when it first released in October 2001 for the PlayStation 2. Since then, the series has seen several sequels that varied in quality, but ultimately still provided some of the most exciting and engaging gameplay to date. Naturally, Capcom had decided to...

  • News SoulCalibur VI's Box Art Is Pretty Darn Sick

    Like, sick as in cool

    Damn, that's some badass box art. Spotted by the omnipresent Wario64 on Twitter, Amazon's posted up the box art for SoulCalibur VI. Interestingly, it goes for artwork that includes both series veteran Mitsurugi and newly revealed guest character Geralt of Rivia. Yes, that's the grizzled bloke from The Witcher -- you can see his

    Review Tesla vs Lovecraft

    Electricity and madness

    With a name like Tesla vs Lovecraft, you're expecting a certain tone. This is not a serious shooter; right from the outset it aims for ‘insane’ and works from there. Appropriate given the game's antagonist. The title screen blasts out a chaotic theme tune, depicting a monster-riding H.P. Lovecraft facing off against...

  • Poll What Are Your Thoughts on EA These Days?

    Still the big bad guys?

    Electronic Arts. EA. One of the biggest video game publishers in the world and also, it's fair to say, one of the most controversial. Over the last decade or so, EA has made a lot of headlines -- not all of them positive. This console generation in particular has seen the company come under fire numerous times because of the...

  • News Star Wars Battlefront 2 Revamps Entire Progression System Amid Controversy

    Microtransactions coming back for costumes

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is being ripped up and reassembled following an enormous backlash at the backend of last year. Set to roll out on 21st March, developer DICE has been busy revamping pretty much everything to do with the release’s progression, presumably as part of a last-ditch effort to win back...

  • News John McEnroe, Andre Agassi Join Tennis World Tour

    You cannot be serious!

    Tennis World Tour will score a premium Legends Edition upon release on 22nd May, which will include two additional superstars: Andre Agassi (with his 1995 outfit) and John McEnroe (with his 1990 outfit). In the latter’s case, we’re assuming that means a big fat bandana, which may have just pushed us towards the pre-order...

  • News Sonic Mania Plus Adds Two New Characters This Summer

    Retail release finally confirmed

    Sonic Mania Plus will spin into brick and mortar stores this summer, SEGA announced during an SXSW panel this evening. The updated version – which will be available as a DLC pack for those who already own the title digitally – will add two new characters to the throwback sidescroller: Mighty the Armadillo and Ray...

  • News RICO Brings XIII's Art Style and Co-Op Action to PS4

    Releasing by the end of the year

    The likes of Killer7 and XIII are fondly remembered for their eye-catching art style, and it's something that RICO is clearly paying homage to as it's announced for PlayStation 4, with a release planned for later this year. The experience is a co-operative one, as it sees you and a buddy paired up as police officers...

  • News SEGA Teases New Sonic Racing Release

    Gotta go fast

    As has been rumoured for a while, there’s a new Sonic Racing game in development. Speculation suggests that Sumo Digital – the developer of the excellent Sonic & Racing All-Stars Transformed – is at the helm, although this is unlikely to lean on the SEGA nostalgia that previous instalments did. A new trailer shows off a bunch...

  • News Trailblazers Tasks You with Painting Your Own Racing Line

    Put a Supergonk on it

    We’re rather taken with Trailblazers, the co-operative racing title that fuses WipEout with Splatoon. For those who missed the announcement, the game essentially sees one racer painting a line, so your partner can boost through it. And if that makes about as much sense as Marouane Fellaini in midfield, there’s a new trailer

    Review TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge

    On the edge of boring

    As you can probably tell by its title, TT Isle of Man Racing: Ride on the Edge is a very niche game. Not only is it an entire game dedicated to one sub-genre of motorcycle sport, but it’s actually dedicated to one race; the Isle of Man’s Snaefell Mountain Course is the only official track present, with fictional tracks set...

  • News Shadow of the Colossus Remake Team Readying Another Revival

    What could it be?

    Shadow of the Colossus is in the running for the greatest remake ever created, and developer Bluepoint is already busy beavering away on another revival. Speaking with’s tech experts Digital Foundry, president and co-owner Marco Thrush admitted that its team is growing to accommodate the scope of its next project...

    Review Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms

    Choose your husbando

    Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms is a visual novel otome game and a direct sequel to last year’s Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds. The main character Chizuru Yukimura is still trying to find her missing father and is still hanging out with the Shinsengumi, a military police unit made up of hunky ronin. The game tells of a time between the waning...

    Review VRFC

    More Hazard than Eden

    VRFC is a strange beast. To get anything from it you need to be able to embrace its lunacy. It might not be a true-to-form example of the beautiful game, but it sure is fun. That is, after you get past the steep learning curve, at least.  For the first couple of hours, VRFC is a baffling experience. There's a tutorial...

  • News Soccer RPG Inazuma Eleven Ares Volleys First Trailer Online

    Through ball

    Inazuma Eleven Ares will mark the franchise’s first release on a PlayStation platform when it launches in Japan this summer, and to celebrate developer Level-5 has released the first footage of the anime-infused footie favourite. In addition to some general exploration gameplay, the video also includes some on-pitch action, including...

    Always further on

    Mulaka is a third-person action-adventure game from Mexican developer Lienzo that tells the story of the titular character who is the Sukuruame, or shaman, of the Tarahumara people of Mexico. It tells an interesting story, incorporating true-to-life fables and stories of the Native American people of Chihuahua. On a spiritual...

    Review Suicide Guy

    Beerly departed

    While the objective in most games is to stay alive, Suicide Guy tasks you with terminating your beer bloated existence. Chubby Pixel’s first-person puzzle platformer could have been vulgar, but there’s enough irreverent humour in this bizarre sequence of bonkers vignettes to make its dark premise work. Still, while it’s not a...

  • News Three PS4 Exclusives Feature in UK's Best Selling Games of 2017

    Crash Bandicoot! Gran Turismo! Horizon!

    There’s no doubt that the PlayStation 4 is top dog in the UK, even despite decent competition from both the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Nevertheless, an impressive three PlayStation 4 exclusives featured in Britain’s best sellers of 2017 list, with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Gran Turismo Sport, and...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 209

    Snow day

    Abhorrent weather conditions here in the UK mean that weather is the top talking point on these shores right now, and you’re damn well sure we’re going to use it to pen the problematic first paragraph of this week's WAYP. The conditions have been catastrophic for some, but while we wish everyone a safe and warm weekend, there’s no...

  • News Manage the Universe's Greatest B&B in Galaxy Hotel

    Out of this world

    There are simply not enough arcade simulation games these days, so thank heavens for Lancarse and Galaxy Hotel. Out now in Japan, the title sees you taking control of a rundown Bed & Breakfast in the corner of the universe, and you must transform it into a premium destination for people to stay. We adore games like this...
