Is PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Still Top Banana on PS4?

Do the monkey with us

Ape Escape 2 released on the PlayStation Store for the PS4 this week – and we've been monkeying around with it.

PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Does the Monkey on PS4

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

As the great Gwen Stefani once sang: "This s*it is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S." And we suppose that Ape Escape 2 is a bit bananas, seeing as it sees you attempt to scoop up monkeys with a futuristic fishing net. The second game in the series launched on the PlayStation 4 last night as part of Sony's PS2 Classics initiative, where it will...

Should Sony Ditch PS3, Vita Support for PlayStation Plus?

Moving on

Like it or not, the PlayStation 3 and Vita are nearing the end of their lives. That's not to say that either system is irrelevant – this author's been playing the addictive Steamworld Heist on the latter lately – but they're not in their heyday anymore.

Here's What You Do in No Man's Sky on PS4

Guide to the galaxy

If life's most common question is "Why would anyone support Liverpool?" then "What do you actually do in No Man's Sky?" must be a pretty close second. A query that's got more mileage than your uncle's fudged Ford Focus, it's been adopted by both fans and haters alike. Perhaps recognising that Hello Games hasn't done an...
