Store Update: 22nd October 2014 (Europe)

22nd October 2014 (Europe)

Break the rules

The early bird always catches the worm, so we guess that we’ll be forced to feed on scraps for posting the European PlayStation Store update so darn late in the day. We’d blame the delay on traffic, but, well, that’s not strictly true. Either way, a rival saying states that you’re better late than never – and we happen to...

Store Update: 21st October 2014 (North America)

21st October 2014 (North America)

Bring the bleat back

Have mercy upon us, great gaming gods, for we cannot cope with the software overload that you’re subjecting us to. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update may be light on heavy hitters, but it more than makes up for any shortcomings in sheer girth. Highlights include Samurai Warriors 4, The Legend of Korra, and

TV Tie-In The Legend of Korra Crashes Down on the NA PSN Today

Rock you like a hurricane

With the highly anticipated Bayonetta 2 hitting the Wii U this week, PlayStation Platinum Games fans have been left to sit back and stare longingly at screenshots of the upcoming The Legend of Korra. However, while perusing the North American PlayStation Store, this writer spat coffee all over her monitor at the discovery...

Get Set for Valley of the Yetis in Far Cry 4's Season Pass

Fur-person shooter

Ubisoft’s gone and put its Bigfoot in it again. The French firm has announced a Season Pass for its upcoming Himalayan first-person shooter Far Cry 4, which will come with a selection of additional missions and objectives for the most ardent adventurers. Costing a pricey £23.99/$29.99, one of the extra tasks will see you take...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Launch Trailer Proves That War Never Changes

We'll fight them in the future

It’s become ‘cool’ to hate on Call of Duty, so we’re eager to avoid jumping aboard the bandwagon. That said, we swear that the folks at Activision have a scientific formula for these launch trailers. After all, this Advanced Warfare clip checks all of the boxes; from loud cries of ‘ooh rah’ to an edgy...

PS4 Firmware Update 2.00, Grand Theft Auto V Bundles, NPD Sales

The evil within

Push Rewind is back from the dead ready to haunt you ahead of Hallowe’en. Actually, this editor was simply too busy to put together this regular feature last week, so unfortunately it had to lay low for a few days. Thankfully, we’re back with a vengeance this time – and with more reviews and features than you can shake a...

Review: Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Jet Car Stunts (PlayStation Network)

Trials and error

Jet Car Stunts’ arrival on the PlayStation 3 and Vita marks the popular mobile game’s first foray onto consoles. Historically, adapted smartphone titles end up feeling a little, well, off when they’re converted to consoles – but there are exceptions. The big question, then, is whether Grip Games has managed to make True...

Legend of Korra, Samurai Warriors 4, Just Dance 2015

Korra, blimey

There’s set to be a spot of animal magic on the PlayStation Store this week, as zany side-scroller Escape Goat 2 bleats aside the competition, and trots onto Sony’s next-gen system. It’ll be joined by fellow curiosity Fluster Cluck, a four-player party game starring chickens in space suits. It’s a jungle out there. If...

Review: F1 2014 (PlayStation 3)

F1 2014 (PlayStation 3)

Stuck in the past

One of the hardest things to achieve in a yearly franchise is a hook to keep people coming back. It’s true of not only sports games, but the sports themselves – after all, no one wants to invest time into something that stays the same every year. For Formula 1, the answer has been the biggest shake-up in a generation, with new...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 43

Sweet talker

Like a particularly aggressive salesman, WAYP refuses to get out of your face. It only feels like a few days ago that this editor was compiling Issue 42, but already Issue 43 is here – we’ll be penning the Christmas special soon. Until then, it’s business as usual: we’ll tell you everything that we’re playing, and then open...

PlayStation's Leading Ladies Get a Little More Affordable in NA PSN Flash Sale

Girl power

You’ll be able to spend some quality time with PlayStation’s most popular female protagonists this weekend – and you won’t have to break your bank balance in the process.

September NPD: Sony Silences Analysts as PS4 Sales Surge

Nine month winning streak rolls on

Michael Pachter appears to enjoy pushing gamers’ buttons, so we doubt that he’ll care too much about the egg on his face right now; either way, his prediction that the PlayStation 4’s winning streak would end in September was, well, wrong. Sony actually managed a ninth month atop the NPD sales charts, with

Sorry Ubisoft, But This Is the Worst Unboxing Ever

Taking the unboxing out of unboxing

Ubisoft, when you label your video as an unboxing, please understand that it comes with a set of standards attached. It’s a bit like the PlayStation TV – people thought that they’d be able to watch Netflix on that thing, and were understandably irritated when they couldn’t. So, while this Far Cry 4 Kyrat...
