Store Update: 14th May 2014 (Europe)

14th May 2014 (Europe)

Big hit

It’s a slightly meatier European PlayStation Store update than North America this week – even if that is primarily because we’re playing catch up in these parts. After an unexpected delay, MLB 14 The Show is now actually available on the PlayStation 4, while Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars has finally made the long journey...

13th May 2014 (North America)

Black magic

There’s not a whole lot of girth to the latest North American PlayStation Store update – but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a big week for PlayStation Vita owners. Fans of Sony’s flagship portable format will be able to pick up both Borderlands 2 and Soul Sacrifice Delta – two tasty titles that should add a little spice to...

Review: SoulCalibur: Lost Swords (PlayStation 3)

SoulCalibur: Lost Swords (PlayStation 3)

En garbage

Forget about missing blades, we suspect that the folks at Bandai Namco may have misplaced their minds while developing SoulCalibur: Lost Swords. This wretched free-to-play fighter serves up the gaming equivalent of seppuku, except the ancient Japanese suicidal rite isn’t riddled with obnoxious loading times, and thus is preferable to...

7th May 2014 (Europe)

Flamin' heck

Coming up with interesting introductions to these PlayStation Store updates becomes a challenge after a while, so we’re just going to dive straight into this European refresh and hope that no one notices the distinct lack of effort. At least the platform holder’s put a little more thought into its digital plaza’s latest publish,...

Store Update: 6th May 2014 (North America)

6th May 2014 (North America)

Strike a light

MLB 14 The Show is the main addition to the North American PlayStation Store this week, promising to hit a homerun for the first time on Sony’s next-gen format. Despite launching on the PlayStation 3 and Vita earlier in the year, this PlayStation 4 version promises visuals so pretty that you’ll struggle to keep your eye on the...

Historical Figures Duke it Out in Eiyuu Senki - The World Conquest

Cat fight

The indie scene on Sony's consoles is flourishing, with more unique and interesting games being added every week – but the same can't be said for titles made by Japan's smaller development teams. We could, however, be seeing the arrival of more bizarre releases in the future, following the announcement of Eiyuu Senki - The World Conquest...

Game of the Month: April 2014 - Child of Light

April 2014 - Child of Light

Out of the dark

April may not have equalled March's onslaught of great games, but it still managed to play host to a number of smaller titles that ended up occupying large chunks of our time. Enjoyable downloadable releases were aplenty, with the likes of Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Trials Fusion, and Child of Light all vying for Push Square's...

Review: Starlight Inception (PlayStation Vita)

Starlight Inception (PlayStation Vita)

Failure to launch

The space combat genre seems to be making something of a comeback lately, with releases like Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut lighting up the dark corners of space. As such, it’s only right that the PlayStation Vita should get its own spaceship game, and Starlight Inception by Escape Hatch Entertainment is a Kickstarter project...

News: Heartless Americans Thought Tokyo Jungle Was Woof

Heartless Americans Thought Tokyo Jungle Was Woof

Doggy doo

Tokyo Jungle is the most bafflingly barmy game to grace any console over the past five years. Outpacing even Octodad: Dadliest Catch in the odd department, the ridiculous roguelike sees you assume the role of a variety of animals, as you attempt to survive in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. However, while we utterly adored the animal centric...

This Weekend, You Can Buy a Bunch of PS3 Games for $5

Shut up and take our money

Valve, is that you? Sony may have been the laughing stock of the digital plaza discount world less than six months ago, but it’s really upped its game over the past few weeks, announcing a slew of sales that have our wallet literally groaning at the prospect of cheap PlayStation 3 games. This latest batch comes care of...

Review: Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels (PlayStation 3)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels (PlayStation 3)

Pick a card

Trading card games are everywhere these days, mostly thanks to smartphones and the free-to-play model. Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium Duels looks to present the genre in a more traditional way. With thousands upon thousands of cards available to collect and utilise in battle, as well as both single player and online modes, it’d be easy to spend...

30th April 2014 (Europe)


Yes, feel free to point and laugh at us like The Simpsons character Nelson – we know that we’re extremely late. While we could make up an elaborate tale involving talking rabbits and tea parties to explain away our tardiness, we’re just going to point our finger at that overnight PlayStation 4 showcase instead. It even made us sleep...

29th April 2014 (North America)

Step into the light

Who said that the PlayStation 4 has no games? There’s been a non-stop barrage of new next-gen releases over the past few weeks, and the latest noteworthy arrival on the North American PlayStation Store is Ubisoft’s gorgeous role-playing title Child of Light. It’s been accompanied by survival horror Daylight and superhero...

Japanese Games Go Cheap in the US PSN Golden Week Sale

Always believe in your soul

When Europe received a bumper Easter sale on the PlayStation Network, it left feathers ruffled that the North American store wasn't getting a similar seasonal gift. However, while those of you in the US may have been forced to skip on last week's celebrations, you can look forward to the Japanese holiday of Golden Week...

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (PlayStation 3)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (PlayStation 3)

Half shelled

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – a game developed by Red Fly Studios and published by Activision – released in August last year on both Steam and the Xbox 360 to a largely atrocious reception. With the game taking around eight months to hit the PlayStation 3, then, one would expect (or at least hope) that the delay...

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition (PlayStation 3)

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition (PlayStation 3)

Wayne too far

You may remember the side-scrolling Arkham spin-off that graced your PlayStation Vita last year. Well, as with so many other franchises before it, the Dark Knight has been transported from the handheld to your living room in Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition. While the portable version was widely criticised for...

23rd April 2014 (Europe)

Stage of history

Wacky parenting simulation Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the hottest new addition to the European PlayStation Store this week, with SoulCalibur Lost Swords and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle providing plenty of backup if you’re not into secret cephalopods. While we get on with the full list, don’t be a furtive fish, and...

22nd April 2014 (North America)

Who's that man in the three-piece suit?

You’ll be able to prove your propensity for parenting as part of the North American PlayStation Store update this week, as the biggest new addition is undoubtedly Octodad: Dadliest Catch for the PlayStation 4. Flanking this fishy fathering sim are SoulCalibur Lost Swords and Demon Gaze. What are you buying?...

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn Enters Orbit in July, Fires Off a New Trailer

Yet more explosions

Back in February, the fourth game in the Dynasty Warriors: Gundam series, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn, was announced for a Summer release over here in the West, and today publisher Bandai Namco has confirmed that the mech-'em-up will be blasting its way to North America in July. Although there's no word on a specific...
