A Heck of a Lot of People Still Like Destiny, Reef Reveal Stream Attracted Over 137,000 Concurrent Viewers

The tower that refuses to fall

For all the online hate that Destiny gets, you'd think that it'd be a somewhat unpopular game. On the contrary, and as history has so often taught us, the most popular entertainment almost always comes under the most fire, and this is true of Bungie's sci-fi shooter, too, which is still being enjoyed religiously by...

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Teases a New Race of Super Soldier

(Bionic) arms race

Well, this could be interesting. Activision's dropped a new teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III – curiously, it's popped up on a Sony YouTube account first – which outlines the sequel's premise. In it, we're introduced to a variety of biological enhancements, all of which culminate in a faux-United States official...

Shovel Knight Ploughs a Path to EU PlayStation Platforms

Spade in the USA

It may have only been a day overdue, but let's be honest: Shovel Knight shouldn't have been late in the first place. Fortunately, we can all take solace in the news that Yacht Club Games' critically acclaimed side-scroller is finally available in Europe – apparently it managed to break free from SCEE's infamous QA limbo, which...

The Curious Case of Head Transplants and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Head case

If we assume that Hideo Kojima really is being pushed out of Konami, and his employment status isn't just a big viral marketing move, then the luminary may find his role at the company that little more untenable today. Dr Sergio Canavero, a controversial medical professional vying to complete the world's first ever head transplant, has...

Explore Destiny's New Social Space in House of Wolves Right Here

Enter the Reef, for real this time

Destiny players will already know of the Reef; a location that appears on the game's map only to house a couple of story cutscenes and nothing more. The shooter's next slice of DLC, House of Wolves, will open this area up, however, and you'll have a chance to see the DLC's new social space in all of its glory later...

Feature: What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Trash Panic?

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Trash Panic?

To bin or not to bin

Trash Panic is rubbish in the best possible way. A concept tossed out by Japan Studio when the PlayStation 3 was about as popular as a bin man in a hoarder's back room, the barmy release sees you playing Tetris with debris. It sounds simple enough, but it's harder than controlling your gag reflexes while washing in a bath...

Sorry Europe, You're Not Getting Shovel Knight Today

SCEE strikes back

Costume Quest 2 is finally out in Europe six months after the holiday that it was produced to promote, so what are you whinging about? Oh, that's right: Shovel Knight, which everyone expected to be part of today's European PlayStation Store update, is actually not due out in the Old World until, er, tomorrow. Maybe. Why? We're...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Manages to Cling to the Top Spot Despite Another Drop

Hangin' on in there

Despite the fact that we thought the PlayStation 4 would finally be knocked from its perch at the top last week, Sony's sleek home console actually managed to seize another victory, even though sales have slipped again, this time by around 2000 units. Of course, this is still only possible because of the fact that New 3DS...

22nd April 2015 (Europe)

Tonight's the knight

We're running out of spade-related puns, so let us just say things straight: Shovel Knight is out on the European PlayStation Store this week. There's a fairly healthy roster of software for PlayStation owners to sink their teeth into actually, with LA Cops and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China also part of the roster. Basement...

Adventure Time Investigates PS4, PS3 This Fall

Ooo

There's been a selection of less-than-stellar Adventure Time tie-ins released on PlayStation platforms over the years, but the forthcoming Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations aims to take the popular Cartoon Network series in an all-new direction. Indeed, this outing's shunning the isometric exploits of its immediate predecessor in...

Mr. Digger

There's a spade with your name on this week, as Shovel Knight turns the Earth on PlayStation platforms.

Here's Your First Look at Destiny's House of Wolves Social Space in the Reef

A brave new world

Ahead of tomorrow's livestream of the location, Bungie's released a teaser trailer that shows a quick glimpse of the Reef's social space in Destiny's second DLC, House of Wolves. As you'd expect, it's quite dark, moody, and, er, purple. It'll boast new characters, upgrades, and gear. If you're sick of seeing the Tower, you'll...

Metal Gear Online Has a Decent Player Count, Supports More on PS4 than PS3

Sounds boss

Multiplayer battles are going to be pretty glorious in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Metal Gear Online mode, if player counts are anything to go by. On PlayStation 4, the competitive offering will support up to 16 players, while the PlayStation 3 version of the game will support up to 12. With eight players per team on Sony's...

Sony's Finally Doing Some Maintenance on PS4's Messaging Utility

Snail mail

Messages on the PlayStation 4 have gotten faster of late, but they're still not as immediate as they should be. Fortunately, platform holder Sony has announced some cross-platform maintenance on the PlayStation Network's communications module, which will run – in the UK at least – from 05:00AM BST until 08:00AM BST on Wednesday,...

Digging Deep with Shovel Knight Developer Yacht Club Games

Knight to see you

Since the release of Shovel Knight, developer Yacht Club Games has been lavished with nothing but love for how well it's refined old-school goodness – in fact, some fans have even said that the 2D platformer has set a new standard for indies. We got in touch with the team's David D'Angelo to talk about bringing the title to...
