Review: Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Castle smashers

There are plenty of brutal indies that'll put your dexterity to the test on Sony platforms. The likes of Spelunky and Cloudberry Kingdom represent a somewhat niche, but addictive genre. However, Rogue Legacy, a title that blends platforming and simple combat with role-playing mechanics, is perhaps one of the most inspired that we've...

Review: Another World (PlayStation 4)

Another World (PlayStation 4)

Back off, man. I'm a scientist

A tiny team of developers with an independent spirit and a vision of creating a game that’s inspired by classic science fiction may seem like a description of Push Square’s E3 2014 Game of the Show, but it could just as easily be applied to Another World. Yet, while Sean Murray of Hello Games talked about creating...

Mass exoddus

Ever had one of those days where every single thing except the sky caving in goes wrong – and then, just to top it all off, your office chair falls to bits? Yeah, us neither – but the bit about the seat was true. So, here we are, writing the European PlayStation Store update on our hands and knees. No, there aren’t any suitable...

Smell you later

PlayStation veterans are in for a treat this week, as Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is set to bring a funny whiff to Sony’s shiny black box. The remake of popular PSone classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – which has forever tainted this editor’s ability to spell ‘odyssey’ – carries a premium price point at $29.99, but has...

Something good

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update has a nice summer feel; in other words, there’s so little on offer that you may actually be forced to head outside and enjoy the warm weather. If that’s a frightening prospect for you, there are a few worthwhile additions this week, including...

Bloodlust

We hope that you haven’t cleared your backlog yet, because there’s not a whole lot to get excited about in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. Gory twin-stick shooter Crimsonland is arguably the most noteworthy addition, while artsy sidescroller Abyss Odyssey is also up for grabs. We’re convinced that the latter...

Review: Constant C (PlayStation 3)

Constant C (PlayStation 3)

Inconsistent C

Constant C is a new puzzle platformer from International Games System. In it, you control a robot that awakes from a slumber of sorts on a space station where time has seemingly stopped. What’s the cause of this? How do you fix it? Through the course of the game, you acquire abilities that allow you to manipulate gravity in order to...

Bite me

There are a couple of unexpected additions to the European PlayStation Store this week, with both 1920s trumpet-a-thon Jazz: Trump’s Journey and ghoulish bicycle simulation Skeleton Rider pedalling onto the PlayStation Vita. Other anticipated additions include season finale

A different place

You’ll finally be entering Another World with this week’s North American PlayStation Store update, so don’t forget to stock up on sodas – and the odd strategy guide or two. Accompanying the re-release of Delphine Software’s timeless classic is whiffy puzzler MouseCraft and manga tie-in One Piece: Unlimited World Red. What...

Review: Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4)

Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4)

Holding out for a hero

It’s a statement that’s rapidly approaching cliché territory, but Housemarque’s cylindrical shooter Resogun is still the PlayStation 4’s best game. That’s not a slight against the software library that Sony’s next-gen system has amassed over the past six months or so – although we’re sure that many would like...

One spicy meatball

Games bring all of the boys and girls to the PlayStation Store, and there’s plenty to look forward to as part of this week’s European refresh. We suspect that the tasty treat at the top of your wishlist will be the hard-to-type PlayStation 4 re-release Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, but the Vita version of the...
