Chapter 3 - Man on the Moon

Take a hike

The Laptop system was, on first impressions, a bit of a letdown. One planet with two moons? Is that all you've got for me, Laptop? Pfff. It wasn't all bad, though. I hadn't really seen many moons at that stage, so I was intrigued to see if there were any differences. Perhaps they'd be rockier and less rich in resources. Whatever the...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered to Get All Original 16 Maps, First Multiplayer Footage

Remaining six maps available in December

While it's probably safe to say that the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered has far more fanfare surrounding it than Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, there has been an air of disappointment surrounding the remaster due to it only including ten of the original multiplayer maps. However, this has...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 133

Are you Red E?

It's the calm before the storm – and not just because we've had a couple of days of hot weather here in the UK. No, we're referring to the fact that the next time we write a WAYP, we'll all know what the PS4K – or Neo – actually is. Exciting stuff, eh? Let's hope it doesn't leak on NeoGAF before Andy House hits the stage...

Sony Reveals Extensive Tokyo Game Show 2016 Line Up

PSN Down for Some as Web Rages Over Connection Issues

Offline and out

Battlefield 1's servers may be a bit more functional today, but Sony's aren't it seems. While not everyone appears to be affected, reports are swirling that PlayStation Network is having a few hiccups – despite the platform holder failing to comment at the time of typing. Most likely this is just a temporary blip, as was the case...

The Best Sonic the Hedgehog Game Freedom Planet Is Coming to PS4

Gotta go fast

Freedom Planet may not bear the moniker of a hyperactive hog, but GalaxyTrail's high-octane indie platformer is Sonic in everything but name. Let's look at its credentials: creepy furry characters, blistering action that would make even Blast Processing blush, and stages that look like… Well, Green Hill Zone. Oh, and it's coming to...

PlayStation Now Review - The State of Cloud Gaming in 2016

Stream machine

PlayStation Now has been a fixture in the Sony furniture for some time now, and that's left it a little misunderstood. In absence of true backward compatibility on the PlayStation 4, many see it as a solution for PlayStation 3 gameplay on the Japanese giant's new-gen machine. But, as its recent release on the PC testifies, the...
