Three Reasons Why Sonic Mania on PS4 Will Be Rad

Sonic Cycle be damned

Let's start by dealing with the talking hedgehog in the room, huh? The lighting in the video you'll find above is… Pretty bad. We'd love to say that we unleashed our inner-Super Sonic and somehow turned our skin a subtle shade of Simpsons yellow, but as amateurs we just completely cocked up the colour grading both at source...

Video: Is PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Still Top Banana on PS4?

Is PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Still Top Banana on PS4?

Do the monkey with us

Ape Escape 2 released on the PlayStation Store for the PS4 this week – and we've been monkeying around with it. The popular PlayStation 2 platformer definitely shows its age in the controls and presentation department, but it runs nicely on Sony's new-gen system, and the upscaled visuals actually hold up surprisingly well...

No Man's Sky's PS4 Servers Will Be Wiped Prior to Release

Hello, goodbye

Managed to get your copy of No Man's Sky early? Having fun naming planets and wildlife before the title's officially out? Er, well, maybe you should sit tight a little longer – a programmer at Hello Games has revealed that the release's servers will be wiped on Sunday ahead of the title's release on Tuesday. If you're already...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 129

The greatest show on Earth

The Olympics are now officially underway, which means it's time to learn about nations that you never knew existed and watch sports that would never get primetime coverage under normal circumstances. You either love it or you hate it, but there's no denying that there's something special about the globe getting together...

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Latest Cinematic Is 'Murica Through and Through

Eff yeah

We're not sure what to think of this. We've gone on record saying that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare looks like a return to form for Infinity Ward, but this 'Long Live the Captain' cinematic couldn't possibly be any more cheesy. We suppose that's what the developer's going for, but yeesh – it's all a bit cringe, isn't it? Even worse,...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... International Track & Field?

Rio hurty hand

We've all been caught crouched in the corner of our bedrooms, illuminated by the glow of sweaty bodies on our televisions, as our wrists work overtime and our faces contort in anticipation of impending pleasure. We are, of course, referring to winning gold in Konami's revered International Track & Field – a PSone sporting...

Here's Your First Look at PS4 Reboot Prey

Arkane Studios' latest steps out

Pray tell us more about your PlayStation 4 reboot Prey, Bethesda. Oh, you're going to drop a gameplay trailer out of nowhere? Well, if you insist. As you can see from the embedded video, Arkane Studios' latest very much falls under the psychological sci-fi shooter umbrella – with BioShock powers to boot. It's set...

Red Dead Redemption 2 for PS4 May Be Right Around the Corner

Rockstar reveal incoming soon

Who's ready to go west? We're not going to lie to you: we were born ready. And after a torturous wait which seems to have dragged on for almost as long as a black and white Western movie, it looks like Rockstar may be finally ready to announce Red Dead Redemption 2 for the PlayStation 4. Well, almost. As part of its...

You Shouldn't Feel Bad for Liking Destiny

Rise of Iron looks to continue the love-hate relationship

With Rise of Iron details flooding the news yesterday, it made me stop and think about Destiny as a whole. We've all been there, I know, but I came to the conclusion that there's nothing wrong with being excited for the upcoming expansion – there's actually nothing wrong with liking...

News: Bloody New PS4 Screenshots Show Character Transformations in Berserk

Bloody New PS4 Screenshots Show Character Transformations in Berserk

No mercy

Transformations don't play as big a role in Berserk as they do in something like Dragon Ball Z, but they're still an important part of the story. Guts goes wild when his Berserker Armour takes over, for example, and demons like Nosferatu Zodd have a true form that allows them to exert their real strength. It's pretty cool, then, that...

The roguelike dungeon crawler gives players control of a band of heroes in a Gothic setting five hundred feet below...

Japanese Sales Charts: Toukiden 2 Slays Its Way Into Top 5 on PS4, Vita

Demon hunting sequel has a decent start

Would you believe it - we've actually got something worth writing about when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts. Toukiden 2 entered the software charts in fourth and fifth place on Vita and PlayStation 4 respectively, but neither version sold especially well, racking up around 100,000 units between...

Inside Comes Out to Playdead on 23rd August

Sooner than expected

Following its Trophies leaking on Exophase a few days ago, Sony has now confirmed that the critically acclaimed Inside will launch on PlayStation 4 on 23rd August. Playdead's second title hit PC and Xbox One two months ago in June, and released to widespread praise from both critics and players. Its sudden arrival on...
