What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 36

All night long

Ah, the weekend – that quiet period where real work is cancelled in favour of household chores. Assuming that you get a break from doing the cooking, cleaning, and fixing that wonky shelf in your bathroom, then you’ll probably be investing it in front of your favourite PlayStation format. Here’s what we’re going to be up to...

Talking Point: Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Term worm

Indie is the video game equivalent of Marmite: a sector of the medium so divisive that it’s simultaneously culpable of both dismay and delight. The very website that you’re reading is evidence of that, but we’re not alone: scuffles and skirmishes more heated than the format wars themselves can be attributed to the increasingly...

Watch as God of War Dev Santa Monica Studio Relocates to a Brand New Office

A new beginning

Whoever though that changing buildings could be such an emotional process? As you may recall, Sony Santa Monica - the studio behind the God of War series, as well as several other smaller delights - has been going through a bit of a transformation of late. First, the developer gave its logo a much needed redesign, and now it's moved...

News: Gossip Regarding Grand Theft Auto V PS4's Release Date Hints at Delay

Gossip Regarding Grand Theft Auto V PS4's Release Date Hints at Delay

Rockstar ain't having any of it, though

Grand Theft Auto V is quite possibly the strangest PlayStation 4 game to date. Pegged for release later this year, the title still doesn’t have a firm release date – or any real details at all attached to it. In a financial meeting earlier in the year, publishing overlord Take Two stated that the...

Peggle 2's Popping onto PS4 This October

About time

Popular puzzler pop-'em-up Peggle 2 will be partaking in some PlayStation 4 partying this October, the game's official Twitter account has revealed. For anyone who isn't familiar with the title, you may remember that it was announced as an Xbox console exclusive back at E3 2013, and what a memorably awkward announcement it was...

Phew, Dragon Age: Inquisition's Multiplayer Will Not Affect the Single Player Story

Thank the Maker

We remember the negative commotion that surrounded Mass Effect 3's co-op mode all too well, and so we were a little worried about whether or not Dragon Age: Inquisition's newly announced multiplayer would have any effect on the single player story, if only so we didn't have to wade through countless hate-filled forum posts...

Saints Row IV and All of Its DLC Gets Re-Elected on PS4 Next Year

We should have known

We were busy typing away about the rather surprising reveal of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, when suddenly, developer Volition decided to throw a slightly less shocking announcement our way. That's right, the PlayStation 4 is getting another last-gen port, and this time, it's the wacky Saints Row IV, which now comes with the...

News: Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is Coming to PS4, and It's, Er, a Standalone Expansion Pack

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is Coming to PS4, and It's, Er, a Standalone Expansion Pack

Gone when the morning comes

Well, we didn't see that one coming. As you've no doubt heard, publisher Deep Silver released a Saints Row teaser image over Twitter earlier today, and with developer Volition hosting a panel at this year's PAX convention this evening, it seemed all but assured that the crazy sandbox franchise would be making an...

Salt and Sanctuary Shakes Some Gorgeous Action onto PS4 and Vita

Taking Sanctuary on PlayStation

Having only just covered Dust: An Elysian Tail, here we have a game from another prominent Xbox 360 developer coming to the PlayStation 4 – and the PlayStation Vita, too. Even more excitingly, this is a completely new and original game, rather than a port. Salt and Sanctuary comes from Ska Studios – a team best...

Dust: An Elysian Tail Flaunts Its Fur on PS4 Really, Really Soon

1080p, 60FPS

There are plenty of people out there who grumble about indie games on the PlayStation 4. Maybe they feel cheated by the lack of original, super polished AAA titles coming out on the next-gen system right now, or maybe they don't feel that indie experiences are pushing their expensive hardware to its limit. However, we defy anyone, even...

Metal Slug 3 Runs and Guns Its Way onto the PS4, PS3, and Vita

Pixel perfect port

No self-respecting videogame console would be complete without at least a handful of Metal Slug ports to its name, so we're happy to report that Metal Slug 3 will be arriving on all three of Sony's super systems later this year. Recently announced on the PlayStation Blog, the bombastic port will apparently come packed with some...

News: Ubisoft Keeps its Blade Hidden by Delaying Assassin's Creed Unity into November

Ubisoft Keeps its Blade Hidden by Delaying Assassin's Creed Unity into November

October's a bit lighter

A few months ago, October was looking like this year's most bloated period for new releases, but a few big delays later, and November is beginning to look like 2014's real heavy hitter. It may only be a relatively small delay of two weeks, but Ubisoft has saw fit to push back Assassin's Creed Unity all the same. The next-gen...

You'll Get These Extras for Purchasing Destiny on PS4

Just to sweeten the sale

It feels like we’ve been writing about Destiny for an eternity now, so thank heavens it’s due out in a couple of weeks. In order to pad out the time while you wait, Activision has released a new trailer showing off the title’s PlayStation exclusive content, which will remain restricted to Sony’s machines until Fall...

PS4 Potter Pure Pool Sinks a Sizeable Patch

Drop it in the pocket

You’ll no longer be bombarded with online notifications for pretty much the entire universe while attempting to pot that all important final ball, as Pure Pool has received a sizeable update on the PlayStation 4. We really liked the billiards simulation when we reviewed it a few weeks ago, but felt that it could do with a...

Yay, PSN's Delayed Scheduled Maintenance Returns Today

Don't worry, you'll be able to play online

We suppose that we should give Sony credit for delaying the PlayStation Network’s previously planned maintenance after Sunday’s outage – even if it was only for a few days. The platform holder has announced that Monday’s postponed preservation period will now take place later today in both

LEGO Batman 3 Travels Beyond Gotham from 11th November

Beyond Gotham, Before Christmas

The LEGO series may not be the world's most innovative, but it reliably serves up a satisfying, kid-friendly portion of brick-bashing and exploration. Later this year, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is scheduled to appear on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita – and it's now been confirmed when we'll be getting...
