Interview: Conducting a Symphony with Video Game Composer Winifred Phillips

Conducting a Symphony with Video Game Composer Winifred Phillips

Sounding off

Sometimes great opportunities just fall into your lap, and that’s exactly what happened to us on this occasion. We recently had the chance to chat to game composer and author Winifred Phillips – whose notable works include Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, God of War, and the LittleBigPlanet series – about her new book, A...

This Is What Grand Theft Auto V Would Look Like in Real Life

As seen on PS3

The stars of Grand Theft Auto V may not be the most savoury people on the planet, but we’d be lying if we said that we didn’t want to step into their shoes for a day or two. It seems that Spanish filmmaker Zapruder Pictures had a similar temptation to masquerade as Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, too, as it’s put together this...

Rumour: Are The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us Coming to PS4 Before Christmas?

Are The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us Coming to PS4 Before Christmas?

It's about Clemen-time

You could never accuse Telltale Games of not working hard enough. The supremely talented developer, which recently announced Borderlands and Game of Thrones projects, is also bringing its two most popular zombie and werewolf themed franchises to the PlayStation 4. We were already aware of the ports, but new

There'll Soon Be a New Yakuza Game for You to Lust Over

Don't hold your breath for a Western release

SEGA’s soap opera-esque role playing series Yakuza had a good run in the West for a while, but now we’re quickly falling behind. Despite localisations being borderline demanded by brand fans, neither Yakuza 5 nor its PlayStation 4 successor Yakuza Ishin have released overseas yet. That means that you...

Freedom Wars' English Story Trailer Will Leave You With a Raised Eyebrow

Living is a crime

If you didn't quite find yourself captivated by last week's 12 minutes of Japanese Freedom Wars gameplay, perhaps this three minute English trailer will do the trick. Thanks to the magic of subtitles, you can finally wrap your head around the handheld title's seemingly bonkers plot. Focusing on the release's cast of colourful...

Little Red Riding Hood Loses Her Marbles on PS4 Next Year

Beware of the big bad Woolfe

If you go out in the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise – a crazed Little Red Riding Hood gunning for your blood. Belgian indie GRiN – not to be confused with defunct Swedish studio, er, GRIN – has confirmed that strange side-scroller Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries will release on the PlayStation 4 in 2015...

Natural Doctrine Brings Tactical Monster Mashing to PS4, PS3, and Vita in September

Destiny can wait

Strategic RPG Natural Doctrine has been on our radar for many moons now, so we're happy to learn that it finally has a concrete western release date. Earlier today, the team over at NIS America announced that the tactical title will be launching for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita on 16th September in North America, and 19th...

Matters of Import: Shining a Light on PS Vita's htoL#NiQ -Hotaru no Nikki-

Shining a Light on PS Vita's htoL#NiQ -Hotaru no Nikki-

Yes, that really is the title

Nippon Ichi, perhaps best known for its Disgaea role-playing game series, has recently released a new PlayStation Vita game in Japan that’s very different from its usual output. htoL#NiQ is a puzzle game, and is best – or perhaps most lazily – described as Japan's answer to monochrome indie die-lots-‘em-up...

Not Bought a PS4 Yet? This The Last of Us Remastered Bundle May Tempt You

Ellie of an entry point

While many have been swift to criticise the PlayStation 4’s first full year on the market, we reckon that Sony’s done an admirable job of beating the content drought and keeping a steady stream of software on store shelves. Only last month it collaborated closely with Ubisoft for the release of Watch Dogs, and it still...

Escape Plan Maker Aiming to Break Free with New PS4 Title

Not sure if the project is Lil or Laarg

Fun Bits Interactive, the Washington-based studio famous for monochrome PlayStation Vita launch title Escape Plan, is busy beavering away on a new PlayStation 4 game. While details are currently incredibly scarce, ex-343 Industries employee Randall Knapp notes on his resume that the company has its head down...

PS4 Firmware Updates, Valiant Hearts, and July's PS Plus Freebies

A good catch up

Push Rewind was conceived as a means to keep you up to date with the weekly happenings on Planet PlayStation, but seeing as this editor’s been holidaying as far away from computer screens as humanly possible over the past seven or so days, this should prove a really rather resourceful recap for your humble host, too. We’re...

Who Wears Short Shorts? Er, Octodad in This Free PS4 DLC

Got the squids

Octodad: Dadliest Catch developer Young Horses understands that you can never have too much fun parading around vibrant environments as a cephalopod in disguise – and so it’s confirmed that freshly caught DLC is in the works for the zany PlayStation 4 indie. Seemingly ditching the insipid stealth-inspired second half of the core...

PS4's First Gran Turismo Game Will Be Stuck at the Start Line for a Little While Yet

Off the mark

This editor’s gaming news engine has been stationary for a few days now, so what better way to remove the rust than with a cheeky post about Gran Turismo 7? It would appear that the industry’s still very much in first gear following the excitement of E3 2014 earlier in the month, but speaking with Eurogamer.net at the Goodwood...
