21 of the Most Awful PlayStation Network Avatars

Fashion disaster

Buzzfeed is so ridiculous that it’s already broken the fourth wall and started parodying itself, but there’s definitely a degree of entertainment to be derived from human stupidity. While we’re not diving down that rabbit hole, we thought that it was time to pad out the post-Gamescom

Reaper of souls

It’s a gigantic week in the PlayStation Nation, with more new arrivals than we possible have space to list in this increasingly unnecessary pre-amble paragraph.

Review: Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Tripping the light fantastic

Whenever we played British developer Honeyslug’s latest game Hohokum at conventions and the like, our biggest issue was quite simply explaining the experience to others. What exactly is the vibrant title starring a multicoloured worm all about? Is it art? How do you play it? Heck, what do you even do? Having spent...

Even more PS4 and Vita announcements incoming

You didn’t think that Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference represented the last of the year, did you? As you should already have learned by now, the Japanese giant loves a good livestream, and, as such, it’s set to host another one on 1st September ahead of the Tokyo Game Show. This same...

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Nothing weedy about this week

We may still be nursing our Gamescom 2014 hangover with a packet of paracetamol, but the release calendar is not going to give us time to dawdle on the job.

Let's try something new

You wanted it, so we’re doing it: WAYPTW will now be published on a weekly basis. In order to make this work, we’re not changing the format, but we’re going to keep the actual article portion more condensed than ever before.

BioWare Reckons You'll Be Able to Spend Over 200 Hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Extinction

We hope that there are enough dragons roaming the wilderness in Dragon Age: Inquisition, because we think that you'll be killing plenty of them if you're to spend over 200 hours with the upcoming RPG. Speaking with IGN, producer Cameron Lee reckons that "a completist playthrough takes more than 200 hours," which no doubt...
