Remember Destructive Racer Cel Damage? It's Coming to PS4, PS3, and Vita

Crash, bang, WTF?!

Some high-definition upgrades you can spot a mile off, but we don’t think that anyone was expecting cult Twisted Metal-esque car combat game Cel Damage to make the jump to Sony’s latest suite of systems. IGN reports that the former PlayStation 2 wreck-‘em-up will launch as a cross-buy title across the PlayStation 4,...

Steal yourself

We’re going to assume that it’s not easy to rob the North American PlayStation Store, but if it was, you’d easily be able to fill a swag bag full of digital goods.

Review: Master Reboot (PlayStation Network)

Master Reboot (PlayStation Network)

On and off

An intriguing narrative and a clever setting can go a long way in a sci-fi adventure game, but it’s a difficult thing to pull off. As such, Master Reboot – a Myst-esque excursion by BAFTA Cymru award winning developer Wales Interactive – struggles to combine its great ideas into a compelling whole. The title comes close at times,...

Review: Dustforce (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Dustforce (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Deep clean

Have you ever wondered why there’s not a game about dusting? Ponder no more, because developer Hitbox – with the aid of publisher Capcom – has released Dustforce, a platformer built around the idea of everyone’s least favourite household chore. While the premise isn’t full-on Freddie Mercury in that one Queen video, this slick...

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 - Smoke And Mirrors (PlayStation Network)

Bite me

When the first episode of Telltale Games’ fairytale-infused noire-esque thriller The Wolf Among Us first latched its jaws onto the PlayStation 3 last October, we were completely blown away by how well its comic book source material translated.
