What Are December 2014's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

Christmas cheer

Thanksgiving is right around the corner for our American readers, but we suspect that the quality of December’s forthcoming PlayStation Plus update will determine just how thankful we’re all feeling come tomorrow morning. Silliness aside, Sony has unveiled this month’s free game refresh a little earlier than usual, presumably...

Injustice, Secret Ponchos, and Hitman Headline December's PlayStation Plus Lineup

Deadly Premonition, Titan Attacks, and more up for grabs

After some pretty strong criticism last month, Sony’s got a much better PlayStation Plus lineup prepared for December. The platform holder already pre-emptively announced the PlayStation 4 titles, but just in case you missed them, you’ll be able to download Injustice: Gods Among Us and

26th November 2014 (Europe)

Burlap brilliance

LittleBigPlanet 3 finally arrives as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update – although you’ll have to wait until Friday to play it in the UK. It’s joined by a handful of lower profile titles, including Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender DX, and the outrageously expensive

Store Update: 25th November 2014 (North America)

25th November 2014 (North America)

Different dimension

A much more condensed North American PlayStation Store update this week, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing some worthwhile additions. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is arguably the highlight this time, but Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One – Zer0 Sum has been securing some seriously high review scores, too...

Listen to This Gorgeous Acapella Cover of The Last of Us' Main Theme

Clicker along

While much praise is lavished over the gameplay and story of Naughty Dog's survival horror opus The Last of Us, comparatively little is said about its soundtrack. Indeed, the harrowing melodies composer Gustavo Santaolalla created for the game go a long way to making it the memorable and emotional experience that it is. Thankfully,...

Here's How to Play as Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen in Dragon Age: Inquisition

When worlds collide

Dragon Age: Inquisition has an extremely robust character creation suite, and it’s already being used to make wonderful things. One industrious player managed to authentically replicate Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen in the fantasy role-playing release – and has deployed a visual tutorial to help you do the...

Round Up: Tales from the Borderlands PS4, PS3 Reviews Crack a Joke

Tales from the Borderlands PS4, PS3 Reviews Crack a Joke

Apparently not Claptrap

Seeing as Borderlands is about as funny as being slapped around the face with a wet fish, we were always sceptical of Tales from the Borderlands. The latest episodic series from Telltale Games strips out the first-person shooting from Gearbox’s titles – and focuses instead upon the people of Pandora. Sounds like a...

Dark Souls II Will Deploy Anew on PS4 and PS3 with a Plethora of Content

Break out the Estus Flasks

Although the masochistic action RPG may not appeal to all, Dark Souls II was a commendable success met with critical acclaim earlier this year, and we were among those who adored its rewarding yet tough gameplay and immersive world. There were some graphical and performance issues on the PlayStation 3 version, though,...

Out This Week: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty DX, Akiba's Trip PS4

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty DX, Akiba's Trip PS4

Bizarre creations

After last week’s deluge of tasty titles, you could be forgiven for thinking that this week’s roster of PlayStation releases may be a little thin on the ground – but it’s surprisingly stacked for the days prior to Thanksgiving. Granted, there are no major blockbusters vying for your attention here, but we reckon that the...

Push Rewind: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4

Grand Theft Auto V PS4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4

The big one

If we’re honest, it’s been a pretty slow week for news – but the wealth of fresh releases has more than made up for things. We’ve been busy working our way through dozens of big titles for review this week, and while we’ve still got our final verdict on Grand Theft Auto V to come, we’re going to give ourselves a pat on the...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 47

Age of dragons

Well now, there are no shortage of new titles to talk about this weekend, are there? While we still can’t seem to convince associate editor Robert Ramsey to participate in one of these – he’s been playing Dragon Age: Inquisition as if it’s going out of fashion for days now – there’s plenty of variety from the rest of the...

Store Preview: Akiba's Trip PS4, Guilty Gear Demo, Geometry Wars 3

Akiba's Trip PS4, Guilty Gear Demo, Geometry Wars 3

Round up, round up

And in the blink of an eye, that’s the last of the big new releases until The Crew next month. Don’t think that the PlayStation Store’s going to become a barren wasteland in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, though, as Sony is keeping it well supplied with a couple of smaller releases – like the PlayStation 4 version of...

Wait, There's a New PlayStation 3 Firmware Update?

Nod like Churchill Dog

Sony’s pledged its ongoing support to the ageing PlayStation 3 by releasing a new firmware update for the machine. The operating system overhaul – dubbed v4.66 – is available now, and improves software stability. Well, you weren’t expecting anything especially interesting, were you? It didn’t take us too long to...

Meet the Man Who Makes PlayStation's Amazing Press Kits

Box art

Talking about press kits in a post-Doritosgate era is perhaps a little awkward, but the work of Tim Smith deserves to be appreciated. The Welsh graphic designer and illustrator is behind some of SCEE’s best pre-release packages, which are typically sent to journalists alongside review code prior to a particular PlayStation title’s...
