Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 50

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...

Feature: Get Festive with the PS4's Best Multiplayer Games This Holiday

Get Festive with the PS4's Best Multiplayer Games This Holiday

Quality time

The holidays are almost here, and for many of you reading this, that means a lot of free time to fill with gaming goodness. Some of us like to snuggle up with an engrossing single player story, a world away from the freezing cold air outside, but we reckon that it's worth considering a more social approach this winter. Indeed, the...

Final Fantasy XV Returns to the Road in Brand New Trailer

Hair we go again

Proving yet again that the Christmas break is nothing but a pipedream, Square Enix has released a ton of new information about Final Fantasy XV. The hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 role-playing game took centre stage at Jump Festa – a long running convention that’s taking place in Japan this weekend. The video introduces new...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Cordially Invites You to the Worst Party Ever

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 video, taken from the introduction of the upcoming episodic game, introduces TerraSave - a recovery unit that employs protagonist Claire Redfield and her friend Moira Burton...

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

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...

Review: Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

Tetris Ultimate (PlayStation 4)

From Russia with indifference

The puzzle game used to be the staple of every platform’s portfolio. Be it Tetris, Columns, or Bust-a-Move, no console was complete without a score chasing outing of its own. In an age of Facebook and smartphones, though, those days are long gone, with Tetris the last bastion of a genre that’s largely been left...

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...

News: PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Attracts the Worst Trailers

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Attracts the Worst Trailers

And this one's particularly bad

It’s a good thing that The Order: 1886’s premise is so strong, because Sony’s done a pretty atrocious job of selling Ready at Dawn’s inaugural PlayStation 4 project so far. This brand new video produced by Sony Japan attempts to spoof a BBC News broadcast – but ends up looking like a high school student’s...

Tekken X Street Fighter Will Still Juggle Its Way onto Your PS4

Base system complete

It’s been a long time since we heard anything about Tekken X Street Fighter. The elusive brawler, which was originally announced back in 2010, appears to have been put on the backburner of late – but director Katsuhiro Harada did indicate recently that development would be switching to the PlayStation 4. Now, speaking with...

News: Sony May Not Have Enough PS4 Stock in Europe This Holiday

Sony May Not Have Enough PS4 Stock in Europe This Holiday

Sell out

Regular readers may recall our obsession with PlayStation 4 stock last Christmas. Sony’s next-gen system was a smash hit at launch, and we were busy scouting out UK and US stores in order to provide you with as much information as possible on fresh supply. Things have, understandably, eased out over the past twelve months – but SCE...

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. Available now for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, developer Rockstar Games’ surprise seasonal update adds a bunch of wintery content to...

Sony's Fighting Back with Some Big US PS4 Bundles

Cut price consoles

Sony got its ass kicked in the last NPD report – but it doesn’t seem especially keen on taking another beating. The platform holder has teamed up with a slew of American retailers in order to prepare some last minute PlayStation 4 bundles, and they’re pretty decent if you’re in the market for a machine. Amazon’s offer...

PS4 Surpasses One Million Unit Milestone in France

Pour les joueurs

There’s no doubt that the French appreciate the finer things; snails, frogs’ legs, and now the PlayStation 4 are all an important part of the nation’s daily life. Writing on Twitter earlier today, PlayStation France confirmed that the next-gen console has now exceeded one million units in the region, making it the third...

Mafia III May Make Your PS4 an Offer You Can't Refuse Soon

Suited and booted

This has been the busiest December this editor can remember in quite a while. As if PlayStation Experience wasn’t enough at the start of the month, our inbox has been inundated with press releases over the past seven days – does no one want to take some time off? This latest tidbit isn’t an official confirmation, but it has...

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...

Minecraft: Story Mode Is the Latest Episodic Adventure from Telltale Games

You read that right

If you thought that Tales from the Borderlands was a strange fit for Telltale Games, then nothing will prepare you for this. As part of a bizarre collaboration with Mojang, the Californian company has announced its latest episodic project: Minecraft: Story Mode. The title will presumably deal with all of that deep subject...
