Review: Rust Buccaneers (PlayStation Network)

Rust Buccaneers (PlayStation Network)

Be a Fisherman’s Friend

Life on the high seas is tough. Forget about the maggot-infested biscuits and longing glances from your salty old sea mates who want to re-enact some of the scenes from the Titanic with your supple young body, as you have worse things to worry about. There be danger off the starboard bow, Jim lad – and it’s coming right...

Joe Danger Crosses the Canyon to PS Vita in 2014

Dare to dream

British indie outfit Hello Games may be busy blowing minds with next-generation explore-‘em-up No Man’s Sky, but that doesn’t mean that it’s forgotten about the PlayStation Vita versions of Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie. Fortunately, they’re still both actively in development at the brilliantly named Four Doo

Indoor Sports World (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Six pack

There isn’t a platform on the planet without some form of pub pastime compilation. Simulating the excitement of otherwise social sports such as snooker, pool, and darts has been a fascination among game developers since programming boffins realised that computers could be employed for more entertaining applications than solving the seven...

17th December 2013 (North America)

Season of digital goods

Christmas has come early on the North American PlayStation Store this week. Indeed, there are so many highlights that we don’t really know where to start. We suppose that the release of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition takes top billing, but the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2 and the PlayStation 4 port of The...

Our stomach's not ready

Not content with the cavalcade of content launching on the PlayStation Store this week? Good, because we're about to bust your wallet with another humdinger: The Walking Dead: Season Two.

Sony Still 'Working Hard' on the LittleBigPlanet HUB

Free-to-yay

Sony has not abandoned the LittleBigPlanet HUB. The platform holder has been crafting the free-to-play creation tool for some time, but it hasn’t really said an enormous amount about it since its announcement at GamesCom earlier in the year. However, community co-ordinator Steven Isbell has confirmed that the company’s still...

What's Improved in The Pinball Arcade on PlayStation 4?

Big shot

If the brilliant Resogun has failed to scratch your leaderboard itch on the PlayStation 4, then the next generation port of Farsight Studios’ uber-realistic The Pinball Arcade should fill a void.

You'll Need to Grab Your Cape for LittleBigPlanet 2's Comic Book Crossover

Holy add-on, Sackman

LittleBigPlanet 2 is almost three years old now, but that’s not stopping Sony from continuing to support the do-it-yourself game making platform with plenty of expansion packs. The latest add-on is a real humdinger, too, fusing the serenity of the Omniverse with the dastardly exploits of the DC Universe. In addition to a bunch...

Review: Eufloria HD (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Eufloria HD (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Seedy business

Eufloria HD is quite possibly the most serene real-time strategy game that we've ever played, which seems like a strange thing to say given that the genre typically sees you taking control of armies during tense battles. You'll still be guiding forces and crushing your enemies here, but the title's natural, calm aesthetic makes it a...

Hosing down the firewall

People were particularly hostile towards Sony during the dark days of the PlayStation Network hack a couple of years ago – but a new report from cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab has outlined just how much strain the platform holder’s constantly under. According to Consumer Affairs, the manufacturer – alongside...

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Being Launched Off the PSN Store

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 taking a fist to the face, too

It seems that Capcom has been unable to break the mounting combo of comic book character licensing fees. As part of a pretty nonchalant blog post, the Japanese publisher has revealed that both Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will be leaving the PlaySt

You Don't Have As Many PSN Trophies As This Guy

Hakoom hits Level 100

Trophies are a curious part of the PlayStation experience. As much as we enjoy the thrill of unlocking a brand new trinket, they can sometimes feel a little bit like hard work. One person who’s transformed the grind into a day job is Hakoom, the world’s leading pursuer of small PNG pictures. And he’s just hit another...

A-Men 2 (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Pray before playing

The A-Men have returned to challenge your deductive skills in another set of devilishly difficult combat scenarios. The rouge robot army that you accidentally unleashed in the original title is still at large, and it’s up to you and your squad of specialists to eradicate them – or perhaps just skirt around them as you get to...

The curious cross-buy title sees you exploring weird and wonderful planets, where you’ll need to complete various personality tests in order to progress. Pretty weird,...
