Review: The Walking Dead: Season Two - A Telltale Games Series (PlayStation 4)

The Walking Dead: Season Two - A Telltale Games Series (PlayStation 4)

Once bitten, twice shy

The first season of Telltale Games’ story heavy zombie game, The Walking Dead, spooked the PlayStation 4 earlier this month, and we liked it very much – even if it wasn’t that much smoother than its PlayStation 3 predecessor. Fortunately, The Walking Dead: Season Two is a far superior port. On previous generation...

PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Will Release on 28th October

Stability updates will inevitably follow

Sony said that it wanted to release PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 before the biggest games of the year, and it’s held true to that word. The platform holder has nonchalantly dated the jumbo download on its official Twitter account, confirming that you’ll be able to nab the software refresh from 28th...

The Unfinished Swan Picks Up Its Paintbrush on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished

The Unfinished Swan is one of those rare PlayStation 3 titles that scored a 10/10 on this very website – and if you missed out on it the first time around, you’ll be able to sample the imaginitive adventure on the PlayStation 4 and Vita next week. Due out on 28th October in North America and 29th October in Europe, this...

Talking Point: Do You Ever Stump Up for Season Passes?

Do You Ever Stump Up for Season Passes?

Chump change

The so-called Season Pass has become the latest way for publishers to extract even more money from cash strapped gamers. What started life as L.A. Noire’s largely innocuous Rockstar Pass – a pre-purchase for several additional cases in the sandbox detective game – has, much like the Online Pass that preceded it, evolved into an...

What's the Latest on PS4 Racer DriveClub's Online Issues?

Stuck in first gear

While we don’t doubt that it’s doing everything that it possibly can, we worry that Evolution Studios may have taken a little too long to get DriveClub up and running as intended. Despite high expectations at the start of the month, interest in the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer has plummeted over the past few days –...

Round Up: Shadow Warrior PS4 Reviews Go for the Throat

Shadow Warrior PS4 Reviews Go for the Throat

Blades of steel

Shadow Warrior started life as a 3D Realms developed first-person shooter, so we can understand why your scepticism is already at an all time high. This PlayStation 4 reimagining by Polish developer Flying Wild Hog, however, aims to drag the original into the next generation – without forgetting any of the late 90s tropes that...

News: Does LittleBigPlanet 3 Look Much Better on the PS4?

Does LittleBigPlanet 3 Look Much Better on the PS4?

Simply thread

Considering that we keep conveniently ignoring it, you may have forgotten that LittleBigPlanet 3 is set to gad onto the PlayStation 3 next month, alongside the PlayStation 4. However, with two versions of the same game on store shelves, you may be curious if there are any differences between the duo. Honestly, the answer is not really...

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...

Review: Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes - 2.0 Edition (PlayStation 4)

Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes - 2.0 Edition (PlayStation 4)

Infinity just got bigger

Disney was never going to let Activision control the NFC figurine market, and so last year it delivered Disney Infinity – a family friendly title featuring themed Playsets and a LittleBigPlanet-esque Toy Box mode. Disney Infinity 2.0 improves upon many aspects of the original, as well as bringing the franchise to the...

The Walking Dead Won't Be Stumbling onto PS4 for Another Week in Europe

The walking delay

You may recall that a few weeks ago Telltale Games' popular The Walking Dead series was finally confirmed to be releasing on the PlayStation 4 after a seemingly endless string of rumours. Well, erm, if you live in Europe, and were planning on spending your weekend playing your way through the title, we've got some bad news. The...

The First of November's Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games Won't Appeal to Everyone

Dry your eyes

They’ve not all been great, but we’ve really enjoyed a lot of the free titles made available through PlayStation Plus on the PlayStation 4. The likes of Velocity 2X, Pix the Cat, and Outlast are all outstanding games – and they’re titles that this editor would have purchased anyway if Sony hadn’t had the good grace to throw...

You'll Be Able to Play Dead or Alive 5 for Free on PS4

Complimentary combat

Dead or Alive 5 is a bit like one of those adult hotlines: expensive but strangely enjoyable. With more downloadable costumes than an Ann Summers storeroom, Koei Tecmo has announced that a free version of PlayStation 4 port Dead or Alive 5: Last Round will release on Sony’s next-gen system. Much like the PlayStation 3’s...

Oh Sony, Did You Really Have to Use Sunset Overdrive's Font for Your Sale?

Ratchet and clanger

Someone may want to get SCEA boss Shawn Layden on the blower, as Sony appears to have forgotten that Insomniac Games is working for the guys in green these days. The platform holder launched the first instalment in its Hallowe’en sale earlier today – and acknowledged the occasion with an image employing Xbox One exclusive...

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

Review: DriveClub (PlayStation 4)

DriveClub (PlayStation 4)

How fast do you wanna go?

It’s been a long wait leading to a bumpy road for racing fans, but DriveClub is finally here. A curious lack of pre-release code and online connection issues has forced us to hold back our thoughts on Evolution Studios' cursed exclusive for a couple of weeks longer than we expected, but having now had a chance to see...
