What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 50

The weekend before Christmas

Just because it’s almost Christmas, we’re not pulling the plug on WAYP. This is your last vanilla edition, before we run a seasonal special sometime next week. We’re finalising Game of the Year here behind the scenes, so there may not be too much time for actual playing – but hey, if you can’t put your feet up...

RSVP

Just in case you were worried, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will feature another shady anti-bioterrorism organisation that's clearly going to turn bad at some point.

This Dragon Quest Heroes Trailer Is a Real Blast from the Past

Time for Slime

As if the returning faces in this Dragon Quest Heroes trailer weren’t enough, the whole thing reminds us of a PSone-era cut-scene. There’s something about the plain but pretty art style that whisks us back to the early era of polygons – and we mean that in the best possible way, because the title looks great. It’s already...

Raidou Really Means Business in These New Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Trailers

Definitely not dead

The horribly evil Raidou will be making a return in Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, and it looks like he's coming back with a vengeance. Featuring in three different trailers as he brawls with ninjas Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate, and Ayane, it would seem that his cybernetic implants gift him with even more powerful attacks than before...

Review: Syberia (PlayStation Network)

Syberia (PlayStation Network)

Clickbait

Originally released in 2002, Syberia is one of the most fondly remembered examples of the point and click adventure game genre. With a clever story, and equally ingenious puzzles, it remains as relevant today as the day that it was released. But while the title itself makes a strong case for the revival of this antiquated style of...

Grand Theft Auto V Says Happy Holidays with Festive Surprise on PS4, PS3

Seasonal fear

Christmas is a time of coming together, sharing, and... Well, shooting each other in the face if Grand Theft Auto V’s recently released ‘Festive Surprise’ is anything to go by.

Review: Destiny: The Dark Below (PlayStation 4)

Destiny: The Dark Below (PlayStation 4)

We can see the bottom

It seems like you can't go a single day without seeing someone criticise Destiny. Bungie's shooter has been nothing if not divisive, but for all its flaws, many still enjoy scouring the same missions and maps in the hopes of buffing up their Guardian. If you're one of these players, then it goes without saying that this...

Wait, the PS4's Not Dead in Japan After All?

Signs of life

With smartphones and dedicated handhelds ruling the roost in Japan, it’s been a difficult first year for the PlayStation 4 in its home nation. While the device definitely hasn’t flopped in Sony’s domestic territory, it’s struggled to make its mark, with multiformat titles selling better on the PlayStation 3 – and the next-gen...

Time traveller's strife

There were a few bits and pieces on the homepage worthy of note this week, though, and...
