Overkill's The Walking Dead Shooter Lumbers onto PS4 in 2016

Possessed Payday

Despite its grisly premise, zombie franchise The Walking Dead has been the flavour of the month for many, many months now. That's a figure of speech, of course; we're hoping that no one has taken any actual culinary tips from the show's shuffling stars. At any rate, the undead hit has seen all manner of video game adaptations –...

Starbreeze Studios Sells Off Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to 505 Games

A new chapter

Ask anyone who has played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and they'll tell you that it's a fascinating adventure that culminates with an emotional punch to the gut. Future sequels were hardly implied by this standalone indie title, however, but developer Starbreeze Studios has announced that it has handed the property over to publisher...

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition May Say Heist to PS4 in April

On the rob

Re-releases are all the rage right now, but this one is so low-profile that we'd forgotten it was even happening in the first place. PSU reports that Best Buy has slapped a 21st April release date on Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, the PlayStation 4 update of Overkill Software's acclaimed robbery simulator. That's a Tuesday so could be...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Testicle Remover Sniper Elite III Tops

Nuts

505 Games’ morbidly graphic long-range shooter Sniper Elite III has enjoyed a second week at the top of the UK sales charts, putting a bullet in fellow next-gen rival Watch Dogs. Despite being available on last-gen systems as well, both games sold best on Sony’s latest machine, evidencing the commanding position that the Japanese giant...

Sniper Elite III (PlayStation 4)

Boom headshot

It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4. In Sniper Elite III, rather than making you think about the needless loss of life, this latest instalment in the distance shooter series asks that you revel in...

Terraria Is Building Its Way onto PS4 Later This Year

Build your own port

Enjoyable sidescrolling build-'em-up Terraria will be digging its way onto the PlayStation 4 later this year, publisher 505 Games has confirmed.

Emergency surgery

For as unashamedly goofy as it may be, there’s something entertaining about the Sniper Elite series’ ostentatious X-ray killcams. The previous entry in the long-range escapade allowed you to observe in intricate detail the damage that your bullets inflicted on your adversaries – and unsurprisingly, the upcoming Sniper Elite 3...

Tiny brains, big character

Science: it’s a wonderful thing. Without science, we’d still be muddling through the dark ages, in a world without Facebook and instant soup. Of course, before such manmade wonders can exist, they need to be tested – and what better way is there to trial such innovations than by exploiting poor animals? Don’t call...

Terraria (PlayStation Vita)

Landheld gaming

Back when Terraria launched on the PlayStation 3, we praised its diverse collection of content and its overall depth, but felt that the title's awkward user interface and time consuming gameplay held it back from greatness in our review. On Sony's handheld, however, the game makes use of the system's touch screen – but is the new...

It’s a testament to...

Terraria (PlayStation 3)

Building blocks

Terraria is a strange title. Its 2D world suggests simple fun when compared to the gritty realism that most games portray, while its quirky styling and audio lead to an often comedic atmosphere. Don’t be fooled by the aesthetics, though – this is a release that demands your time and effort if you want to get the most out of it...
