A wedge between your social life
Raining ones and zeros
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’s latest patch will ensure that your selected fighter no longer gets swapped during online gameplay. It will also add a new item to the game: Medusa’s Gaze from God of War. Presumably that will stop opponents in their tracks, giving you the opportunity to unleash some deadly combos. Other...
We absolutely adored MotorStorm RC, but we reached a point in the campaign where it all got a bit too tough. Turns out developer Evolution Studios noticed that too, as it has prepared a new patch designed to rebalance the game. The developer notes that the patch is not intended to make the game easy, but to ensure the campaign progression...
A wedge between your social life
Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (or Everybody's Golf to our European readers) is already pretty addictive. But developer Clap Hanz intends to make it even more addictive with an upcoming update. The patch – which is due out in Japan next week – adds a number of new features to the cheery title. Headlining the...
Raining ones and zeros
It’s not often we get to report on simultaneous patch announcements for two different titles, so we’re going to savour this moment. Konami has announced that it will shortly release new updates for Silent Hill: Downpour and Silent Hill HD Collection with the intent of fixing audio synch and auto save issues present in the...
An Axel to grind
Those of you still engaged in vehicular combat will be pleased to learn that Sony’s adding a new set of wheels to Twisted Metal’s garage today. Axel, the former pre-order bonus, will be available to everyone that updates the game to its latest version. The two-wheeled motorised menace – which has become a fond favourite of...
There are numerous minor bug fixes in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s latest software update, but the most notable improvements come in the form of new kill cameras for projectile weapons and fresh animations for melee attacks. Anyone that’s spent more than 20 hours traipsing the city of Winterhold will know how repetitive the combat in...
Vita's top title expands
The escapades of Lil and Laarg are far from over. Sony has announced on the PlayStation Blog that Escape Plan will get its first content expansion on 10th April – and the content will be free. The downloadable pack, entitled Bakuki’s Lair, will add 19 new prequel levels to the touch intensive head scratcher that will...
Stutter no more
The PlayStation 3 version of Bethesda’s brilliant-but-broken fantasy role-playing title, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, might finally transform into a functioning product later today. The developer’s confirmed that the game’s long awaited v1.4 patch – which promises to fix a host of bugs in addition to the game’s well...
Now everyone can hear you scream
Being a tactical game, communication is a pretty important component of Battlefield 3. Unsurprisingly, players were pretty miffed when the game shipped with shoddy voice chat quality, making communication between teams pretty much impossible. But, as promised, DICE has finally solved the issue – updating the game to version 1.06 in the process. The patch – which..
Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition Version 2012 update is in the running for the longest title for anything ever
It's right up there with Ed Vega's "No Matter How Much You Promise To Cook Or Pay The Rent You Blew It Cauze Bill Bailey Ain't Never Coming Home Again" and I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business. The free patch is set to release on December 13th. You can peruse..
If you struggle to distinguish the difference between up and down, Ubisoft's got your back
Hit by a minor backlash when it forgot to implement "inverted aim" options in its recent Splinter Cell HD Collection, the publisher has released a patch to rectify the problem and quell the concerns of struggling gamers. Now up is down and down is up. Because that makes sense.
Terrified of your Skyrim save-file hopping over the dreaded 6MB limit? Bethesda's got your back -- but you're going to have to wait until the week after Thanksgiving first
(That's the week starting November 28th for everyone outside of North America.) According to Bethesda's Pete Hines a patch is in submission with Sony. No word on exactly what the patch contains, but we're expecting the publisher..
It wouldn't be a Bethesda game without a game-breaking bug hanging over it
PlayStation 3 owners of the publisher's mammoth role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, have voiced concern over the game's performance hindering save file bug. In a slew posts on Bethesda's forum, players have noted that once the game crosses a certain save file size threshold (around 6MB) its performance is..

No, the much publicised PlayStation Home reboot is not launching tomorrow
But the platform's still getting a major update as it jumps to version 1.55. New features include updates to the Wardrobe function, as well as a new Furniture browser that makes sifting through digital goods as straight-forward as an Ikea catalogue. Hit the jump for the full...
Gran Turismo 5's got a bunch of new features as of this morning, thanks to the release of a new patch bringing the game up to version 1
06. The 300mb download includes support for remote racing, allowing you to access B-Spec GT5 races via your web browser. Other features include Performance Points for online matchmaking, and the introduction of Course Maker tracks in multiplayer. The full list of..
.. Well, kudos to Konami for supporting their game we suppose. We'd forgotten Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots even had an online component, but here's a new patch for that very mode. The update's able to detect "fraudulent" connections which may slow the game down. Of course, the bigger question is whether anyone's actually still playing Metal Gear Online. Konami patch notes:..
PlayStation 3 players of Mass Effect 2 have been reporting a strange glitch which leads to the loss of game progress
Naturally, this is pretty bad as Mass Effect 2 is a sprawling 30-hour RPG epic. Bioware says it's aware of the problem and hopes to have a patch submitted to Sony as soon as possible. Until then, the developer reckons restarting the game every few hours should help you to avoid the..
Isn't it bizarre how patching can change games? For example, the MAG we reviewed in January is no longer the same game
Likewise PlayStation Home, the whole things changed yo. So while Gran Turismo 5 sits looking sulkily at its respectable Metacritic score of 84, Polyphony Digital's been busy beavering away on new features that could easily brings its average tally up into the 90s. Perhaps most..
Presumably in response to the rush of reviews claiming, "Blah blah blah the damage is rubbish and the game took five years to make and we spent three minutes reviewing it because the damage is rubbish," Polyphony Digital's upgraded Gran Turismo 5 to version 1.03, introducing the option to turn-on the game's damage features. Great, now you can pretend you're playing Destruction Derby..
Zipper Interactive's revealed that MAG will get a gameplay patch next week
Patch 2.10 includes "gameplay and technical amendments" along with new game queue technology. Bit of a non-story this really, isn't it? Yep, we thought so. It's that kinda day.
Treyarch's announced that it's released a new update for Call Of Duty: Black Ops on the PlayStation 3
The changes are pretty minimal this time, offering some improvements to matchmaking and leaderboard tracking. The PlayStation 3 version also has some "anti-friends list" spamming features. No idea what that is, but apparently it'll improve the game's performance for those with large..
PlayStation Home has been getting awesome behind the scenes for a while
Today Sony's launched a new client for the virtual world which brings with it new wardrobe support, voice chat and new character status settings. Are you happy, angry or sad? Now you'll be able to tell the world — or at least the small portion of the world using Home. Naturally the client fixes a bunch of bugs too, all of..
Fallout: New Vegas has been fixed
Hallelujah. A new patch for the game — the same as the one released for Steam over the weekend — has now been rolled out onto the PlayStation 3 version of the game. Apparently the update includes "over 200 fixes". We booted up our copy of the game to check and noticed an NPC half-stuck in the ground... Still a way to go then, eh?
IGN's dropped details of the long awaited patch for United Front Games' Modnation Racers
We loved the game when we reviewed it a few months back, but had stopped playing recently due to a number of issues with the game — namely the load times. While we didn't have a huge problem with the loading at the time, they do kill the multiplayer somewhat, as there's no repeating lobby system. United..
