The nightmare before Christmas

Well, it's practically Christmas – but Sony ain't shirking its civic duties. Considering that it's the 23rd December, this is a surprisingly bumper North American PlayStation Store update, featuring new titles such as Switch Galaxy Ultra, as well as a metric ton of DLC.

Review: Syberia (PlayStation 3)

Syberia (PlayStation 3)

Clickbait

Originally released in 2002, Syberia is one of the most fondly remembered examples of the point and click adventure game genre. With a clever story, and equally ingenious puzzles, it remains as relevant today as the day that it was released. But while the title itself makes a strong case for the revival of this antiquated style of...

A realm reborn

There’s a free Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trial for PlayStation 4 available as part of this month’s European PlayStation Store update, which has this editor shivering in the corner of a dark room, muttering “must resist” in a deranged fashion. Also up for grabs is Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, which certainly...

A Lara games to get through

There’s no rest for the wicked, and Lara Croft’s got time for one last crusade before Christmas.

Burlap brilliance

LittleBigPlanet 3 finally arrives as part of this week’s European PlayStation Store update – although you’ll have to wait until Friday to play it in the UK. It’s joined by a handful of lower profile titles, including Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender DX, and the outrageously expensive

Different dimension

A much more condensed North American PlayStation Store update this week, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t packing some worthwhile additions. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is arguably the highlight this time, but Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One – Zer0 Sum has been securing some seriously high review scores, too...

Round up, round up

And in the blink of an eye, that’s the last of the big new releases until The Crew next month. Don’t think that the PlayStation Store’s going to become a barren wasteland in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, though, as Sony is keeping it well supplied with a couple of smaller releases – like the PlayStation 4 version of...
