Review: Proteus (PlayStation Network)

Proteus (PlayStation Network)

Kaleidoscope eyes

On our journey through Proteus, we witnessed history, mythology, nature, industry, death, ascension, and enlightenment. We experienced all of these things, but there's a chance that you may not, because part of the appeal of the release is that it's entirely subjective. As such, this is one of the most thought-provoking titles on...

Store Update: 29th October 2013 (North America)

29th October 2013 (North America)

Catch of the day

There’s plenty to plunder on Sony’s primary platforms this week, starting with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The seafaring sequel is the definite highlight in the latest North American PlayStation Store update, but it’s accompanied by a competent crew including Proteus, WWE 2K14, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow –...

OlliOlli's Campaign Will Put Your Skating Skills to the Test

Shove it

Tony Hawk may be weeping into his oversized skateboard peripheral as we type, but that’s not stopping British indie Roll7 from capitalising on the superstar’s video game nosedive. While it may not be garnering as much press as it deserves, OlliOlli is actually one of the more addictive titles that we’ve played on the PlayStation Vita...

This Is How You Share Your Games on the PlayStation 4

Step one

Sadly, we’re not blessed with the comic timing of Sony executives Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes, so our PlayStation 4 game sharing update is going to be a little more straight faced than the double act’s hilarious Xbox One troll from earlier in the year. Still, we come bearing new information, so hopefully you can forgive us for the...

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Bubbles to the Surface Next Month

The big daddy

BioShock Infinite’s first major add-on pack Burial at Sea will plunge to the murky depths of Rapture next month, publisher 2K Games has confirmed. The soggy expansion will plot the return of protagonists Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth, albeit in an alternate timeline that’s sure to leave you with a furrowed brow by the time that you...

News: Sony Flinging PAIN onto the PSN for Free

Sony Flinging PAIN onto the PSN for Free

Bring the pain

In 2007, agony was brought upon the PlayStation Network in the form of PAIN, a ludicrous yet hilarious title which enabled you to chuck a human being at buildings, vehicles, and various surrounding landmarks with the objective of causing as much mayhem as possible. At the Brazil Game Show, Sony announced that the injury inducing...

Store Update: 23rd October 2013 (Europe)

23rd October 2013 (Europe)

Bat to the beginning

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update is similarly stacked with noteworthy content. Highlights include Batman: Arkham Origins, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and God of War: Ascension. There’s also

Store Update: 22nd October 2013 (North America)

22nd October 2013 (North America)

Tripping over content

Where to even start? This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so outrageously enormous that we doubt that we’ll be able to do it justice in under 75 words. Highlights include a bunch of PS4 pre-orders, the re-release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (seriously, you should play it), and a little game called,...

Review: Superfrog HD (PlayStation Network)

Superfrog HD (PlayStation Network)

Princely or wince-worthy?

Superfrog HD is the remake of an Amiga classic from 1993 and was made by the trusted people at Team 17, who are famous for the Worms series. The narrative is not really groundbreaking, but it tells the sweet love story of a prince and a princess. As with all magical kingdoms, though, fate has something else in mind for the...

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 - Faith (PlayStation Network)

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 - Faith (PlayStation Network)

Little red riding in the hood

Fresh off the incredible success of the first season of its The Walking Dead adaptation, Telltale Games is now faced with the almost insurmountable task of trying to match the lofty heights of Lee and Clem’s walker-dodging misadventures. In order to attempt this feat, it's adopted the Fables comic franchise as the...

Review: Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion (PlayStation Network)

Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion (PlayStation Network)

Peg your nose

Orcs are almost the fantasy genre equivalent of Nazis. They often make up the bulk of an evil army, and represent the dumb grunts that you have to wade through in order to reach your goal. But sometimes we're allowed to play as them. In the The Elder Scrolls series, for example, they're a playable race, while in the ridiculously named...

First Impressions: Switching Genres on the Fly in Velocity 2X on Vita and PS4

Switching Genres on the Fly in Velocity 2X on Vita and PS4

Oh Kai

During its short spell at the forefront of PlayStation production, FuturLab has profited from its ability to surprise. Straightforward concepts are at the core of the company’s ethos, but the award-winning developer always manages to marry them with clever twists. That commitment to reinvention resulted in the firm refreshing the entire...
