Review: Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita)

Freedom Wars (PlayStation Vita)

Grind and punishment

Easily one of the PlayStation Vita's most anticipated titles, Freedom Wars plops you into a dystopian future that's full of typically stylish teens and giant mechanical beasts, and tasks you with whittling down a one million year sentence of service to your not-so-lovely community. For many owners of Sony's portable console, a...

Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

Marathon sprint

The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

Slick PS4 Shooter Resogun Will Save the Last Humans on Vita

System seller

Housemarque’s throwback arcade shooter Resogun is so good that we’d quite like to have a playable version augmented into our eyelids, but seeing as that’s not physically possible, we’ll settle for a PlayStation Vita version instead. Fortunately, it sounds like the Finnish indie is working on just that, assuming that comments...

29th October 2014 (Europe)

Late to the party

As with its North American counterpart, this European PlayStation Store update is absolutely bursting with new releases – but there’s one irritating absentee for this editor. Indeed, where the heck is Costume Quest 2? A game designed around Hallowe’en should arrive before said event, and if your humble host doesn’t get his...

Freedom fighters

Another week, another outrageous North American PlayStation Store update.

PSN Down as Sony's Servers Feel PS4 Firmware Update 2.00 Strain

Offline agony

Being a PlayStation fan is a bit like supporting the England football team these days: when the chips are up, you just know that they’re going to come crashing down at some point. As such, it’s no surprise that just when we were starting to feel satisfied with PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00, the PlayStation Network has...

Review: Pix the Cat (PlayStation 4)

Pix the Cat (PlayStation 4)

Feline fine

At first glance, Pix the Cat appears to be a relatively simple arcade experience. However, this unassuming exterior belies its innovative and addictive mechanics, as well its surfeit of surplus content. Make no mistake, this is an insanely infectious indie which absolutely deserves your attention. At its core, Pastagames’ latest is an...

Review: Samurai Warriors 4 (PlayStation Vita)

Samurai Warriors 4 (PlayStation Vita)

More than a slice

Warriors titles have enjoyed a good run on Sony's underappreciated handheld, with ports of recent releases proving to be decent alternatives to their home console counterparts. At times, portable play suits the hack and slashers better, as you can jump in and out of battle at a moment's notice. The only consistent problem is that...
