Store Update: 27th May 2014 (North America)

27th May 2014 (North America)

Keep watch

We suspect that this week’s headline addition needs no introduction, as open world adventure Watch Dogs is available now on the North American PlayStation Store. Assuming that you have some leftover time and money, however, there are a handful of lighter bites to keep you occupied, including Lemmings Touch, Mind Zero, and Monster...

PS4 Exclusives Discounted on European PlayStation Store

Knack punches Killzone's price

The price of PlayStation 4 games have been nothing short of extortionate in the UK since launch, with some titles retailing at up to £64.99 ($110) depending on where you shop. Fortunately, the figures are slowly starting to come down, with both Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein: The New Order commanding much more manageable...

The new order

It’s a scorching week on the North American PlayStation Store, with more new releases than you can shake a stick at. Highlights obviously include Transistor and Wolfenstein: The New Order, but Sparkle 2, Drakengard 3, and a slew of new PSone imports are vying for your attention, too. What are you buying?

Hit Series Tie-In Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment is Coming West for the Summer

Inception

While we're no stranger to anime themed titles on PlayStation consoles with Dragon Ball and Naruto making almost yearly visits, it's rare for any but the big names to come and play. But thanks to its overwhelming popularity, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, a PlayStation Vita tie-in of the worldwide smash hit, will be swinging its...

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 3 - In Harm's Way (PlayStation Network)

Deeper down the rabbit hole

When writing reviews, it’s always important to avoid spoilers, that way you don’t ruin the experience for future players. This is a particular conundrum that we face each time that Telltale Games releases new episodic content, as each instalment builds upon the last, making our lives a misery as we attempt to dance...

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...

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...

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,...

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 Network - Vita)

Starlight Inception (PlayStation Network - 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...

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...

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

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...

Neverland

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...

Ethan: Meteor Hunter (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Rat trapped

Already available on the PlayStation 3 and via Valve’s computer-based Steam client, Ethan: Meteor Hunter features a plucky rat that’s bestowed with the power of time freezing and teleportation. Despite the zany premise, this side-scroller has already won one major award and been nominated for a number of others – but has this...
