The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 - No Going Back (PlayStation Network)

The long and winding road

Back in July, when Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us wrapped up its first season, The Walking Dead was only at its halfway point – but the developer has raced to Season Two’s finale since then. As those of you that are familiar with the series will already know, this second set of episodes puts you...

Yay, PSN's Delayed Scheduled Maintenance Returns Today

Don't worry, you'll be able to play online

We suppose that we should give Sony credit for delaying the PlayStation Network’s previously planned maintenance after Sunday’s outage – even if it was only for a few days. The platform holder has announced that Monday’s postponed preservation period will now take place later today in both

Count the pennies

If you’re in the market for a new PlayStation 4 game to keep you occupied while you wait patiently for Destiny’s release next month, then you may want to take note of Sony’s latest PlayStation Network sale.

Heavy hitters

It’s an absolutely gigantic week on the North American PlayStation Store this time, especially for the PlayStation 4. Highlights undoubtedly include retail releases Madden NFL 15 and Metro Redux, but Sucker Punch’s superhero spin-off inFAMOUS: First Light deserves a mention as well. Other new arrivals include sidescrolling...

Review: CounterSpy (PlayStation 4)

CounterSpy (PlayStation 4)

From Russia with regret

CounterSpy is a strange beast. Developed by fledgling studio Dynamighty, it's an ambitious game that strives to bridge the gap between 2D and 3D stealth, while also attempting to juggle randomly generated levels. And while it plays host to some truly unique mechanics, and consistently brilliant presentation, it's...

No Personal Information Has Been Accessed in PlayStation Network Outage

Hack job

Well, this is all starting to seem eerily familiar now, isn’t it? There were signs earlier today that the PlayStation Network was coming back online as planned – we even logged in for a few fleeting moments – but the service hasn’t returned quite as quickly as we anticipated. In fact, it’s been out for nearing 12 hours now,...

Is PSN Offline? Yes, and the Scheduled Maintenance Doesn't Start Until Tomorrow

All services currently down

We know that Sony’s planning to run some Bank Holiday tests on the PlayStation Network, but the manufacturer’s servers appear to have come crashing down a day early. While status reports from the Japanese giant claim that its online platform is currently up and running, we can’t log in using any of our consoles in...

A Bank Holiday's Coming, So Sony's Pulling the PSN Offline

Maintaining scheduled maintenance tradition

As has become a frighteningly frequent occurrence of late, Sony’s decided to run some mandatory maintenance on the PlayStation Network – during a Bank Holiday weekend. Those of you living in the UK will probably be looking forward to a full three days away from work right now, but you may not be able...

Still keeping that hair short

Regular readers will know that this editor has spent the past few months desperately trying to catch up on Telltale’s episodic adaptation of The Walking Dead. Well, your humble host recently finished Season Two, Episode Four, which means that he’s ready for the finale. And best of all, the misery will unfold from...

21 of the Most Awful PlayStation Network Avatars

Fashion disaster

Buzzfeed is so ridiculous that it’s already broken the fourth wall and started parodying itself, but there’s definitely a degree of entertainment to be derived from human stupidity. While we’re not diving down that rabbit hole, we thought that it was time to pad out the post-Gamescom

Name's Spy, CounterSpy

It’s all espionage and beating bad guys over the head with clubs on the PlayStation 4 this week, with CounterSpy and Hotline Miami both deploying as cross-buy releases.

Reaper of souls

It’s a gigantic week in the PlayStation Nation, with more new arrivals than we possible have space to list in this increasingly unnecessary pre-amble paragraph. Highlights include cross-buy espionage adventure CounterSpy, hotly anticipated sequel Tales of Xillia 2, and expanded re-release Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. Let's...

Review: Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Tripping the light fantastic

Whenever we played British developer Honeyslug’s latest game Hohokum at conventions and the like, our biggest issue was quite simply explaining the experience to others. What exactly is the vibrant title starring a multicoloured worm all about? Is it art? How do you play it? Heck, what do you even do? Having spent...

Sit back, relax, and play

New titles are being announced thick and fast this week at Gamescom, but that doesn't mean that the games of the future should overshadow the games of now. We have a fantastic offering on the North American PlayStation Store this week, including the colourful Hohokum and Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition. Let's make an...
