House of (white) Wolves

This week's European PlayStation Store update certainly isn't the biggest in recent memory, but it's packing some massive releases.

Geralt's best friend

Ever since the PlayStation 4's announcement, the touchpad on the DualShock 4 has seemed like a bit of a gimmick. It's been employed, mostly, as a replacement for the select button since launch, but The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a few more uses for the responsive rectangle that you may not be aware of. Tapping it will, obviously,...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's Physical Package Puts All Other Games to Shame

I'm not overly thrilled at the fact that my age is beginning to increase against my will, but I am thankful that I'm old enough to appreciate physical media.
