Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4)

Holding out for a hero

It’s a statement that’s rapidly approaching cliché territory, but Housemarque’s cylindrical shooter Resogun is still the PlayStation 4’s best game. That’s not a slight against the software library that Sony’s next-gen system has amassed over the past six months or so – although we’re sure that many would like...

PS4 Port The Last of Us Remastered Is Agonisingly Close to Completion

Endure and survive

PlayStation 4 port The Last of Us Remastered has sort of crept up on us like Joel and Ellie in a Firefly stronghold. The game – which was announced earlier in the year after numerous leaks – is due out at the end of the month, and judging by a Tweet posted by lead programmer Jason Gregory, it’s very nearly complete. “Grea

Celebrate American Independence the Right Way with This Wacky Resogun Update

Forget Battlefield

You may have seen the article that we just posted about an Independence Day Easter egg that was recently added to Battlefield 4. Not to be outdone by the mega-franchise, Resogun developer Housemarque has released a small, but still humorous, patch for its popular shooter. As you can see in the video below, the update morphs the...

What the Heck Is a PocketStation?

Lifting the lid on Japan's best PlayStation accessory

Back in the mists of time, when Tamagotchi was still a thing and we were all wondering if SEGA’s Dreamcast was really going to turn things around for the ailing hardware company, Sony took the Sonic the Hedgehog maker's new Visual Memory Unit concept – a portable memory card with a built-in...

Shuhei Yoshida Doesn't Understand People Who Don't Like Indie Games

Neither do we

If the last two E3s are anything to go by, Sony's continued efforts to court indie developers are paying off. What's more, the Japanese giant seems pretty chuffed with this outcome, as Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida stated in a recent interview. "Almost every week you see an indie game coming out digitally on PS4. Some of...

Just About Every Japanese Game You Can Think of Has Been Discounted in This Massive EU PSN Sale

Gifts from the East

Fancy nabbing some great Japanese games for your PlayStation 3 or Vita? Kicking off today in Europe, the PlayStation Store is discounting a frankly ridiculous amount of Eastern titles.

Should More Games Emulate PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode?

Say cheese

You could never accuse Seattle-based first-party studio Sucker Punch of not listening to its fans. Many berated the first entry in its superhero series inFAMOUS for the obnoxious personality of supporting star Zeke, and so it spent the entirety of the PlayStation 3 title’s sequel trying to redeem the character – a measure which...

Freedom Wars' English Story Trailer Will Leave You With a Raised Eyebrow

Living is a crime

If you didn't quite find yourself captivated by last week's 12 minutes of Japanese Freedom Wars gameplay, perhaps this three minute English trailer will do the trick. Thanks to the magic of subtitles, you can finally wrap your head around the handheld title's seemingly bonkers plot. Focusing on the release's cast of colourful...

Not Bought a PS4 Yet? This The Last of Us Remastered Bundle May Tempt You

Ellie of an entry point

While many have been swift to criticise the PlayStation 4’s first full year on the market, we reckon that Sony’s done an admirable job of beating the content drought and keeping a steady stream of software on store shelves. Only last month it collaborated closely with Ubisoft for the release of Watch Dogs, and it still...
