Could Knack Possibly Make a Comeback? PS4 Architect Mark Cerny Would Like It To

Indie-esque project next on the agenda

PlayStation 4 exclusive Knack was easily the worst received of the next-gen console’s launch titles, securing a string of low scores around the web.

The Last of Us' Ellie Can't Play Guitar, But She Can Sure Rock a Violin

Audio from the end of the world

Father figure Joel may promise to teach Ellie how to play guitar at one point in PlayStation 3 – and soon-to-be PlayStation 4 – exclusive The Last of Us, but we didn’t realise that the potty mouthed protagonist was already something of a whiz on the violin.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 31

Fruit cocktail

This particular editor may have been lost at sea and unable to steer the ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’ ship last time around, but dry land is once again beneath your humble host’s feet, and so normal service has resumed.

Sony's Considering a Steam-Style Early Access Program, Says Adam Boyes

Let the games begin

It seems that Steam's famous Summer Sales may not be the only thing Sony's thinking about borrowing from the digital download service. In a recent interview, SCEA big-wig Adam Boyes suggested that the firm may be adopting an early access program.

Well chill

Sony's custom Glacier White PlayStation 4 may be ice cold, but Japan's latest hardware option is Frozen. This special shell sports Anna and Elsa artwork from the popular Disney movie, as well as lots of pretty snowflakes.

It's not as hard as you think

So, interested in Destiny, are you? At this point, we suppose the better question is: who isn't interested? The game's alpha sent the PlayStation community into an uproar, and it's safe to say that we were thoroughly impressed, too.

Let's Be Honest, Heavenly Sword: The Movie Looks Hellishly Bad

Kai sera, sera

Hairy heroine Nariko’s real-life alter ego Anna Torv may be present and correct, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to save Blockade Entertainment’s cinematic Heavenly Sword adaptation from plunging to the pits of Hades. The curious flick seems to have been in production for an eternity, and now it finally has a 2nd...

Valiant effort

Ding dong, E3 is dead – and that means that order has been restored here at Push Square Towers.

Have a Peek at Dragon Age: Inquisition's 16 Minute Private E3 Gameplay Demo

Hot stuff

Upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition had a rather tame showing at EA's E3 press conference last month. Alongside cringe inducing dialogue from the on-stage GM Aaryn Flynn, the game didn't get the big gameplay blowout that many expected, probably due to the publisher's strict time table. Thankfully, the...
