Manga mayhem

The Vita is no stranger to Japanese games, much to the delight of many anime and manga enthusiasts. Adding to the now bulging library, SEGA has announced that 2-D brawler Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is coming West. It's a colourful and fast fighter that features characters from a Japanese publication of the same name, and as such,...

You're Not Sick of LEGO Games, Are You?

Jurassic World, Marvel's Avengers, and more on the way

While the likes of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed frequently get lambasted for being annualised, Warner Bros seems to have gotten away with milking LEGO like a particularly profitable cash cow. Last year saw the release of four fresh toy-based adaptations, and we'll be getting a further...

Set Sail with Four Brand New One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Character Trailers

A new challenger

Ah, Warriors games. Thanks to their often massive character rosters, there are plenty of excuses to swamp fans in videos and screenshots, and we've got four such trailers for you today. Showcasing the movesets of returning fighters Smoker, Buggy, and Mihawk, along with newcomer Tashigi, there's plenty of footage to heighten those...

Sony Tempting Fate with Friday 13th New York Event

Will announce new PlayStation initiative

PlayStation MVPs are essentially Sony super fans who get invited to various internal events as a reward for being top-tier consumers. They're also occasionally privy to information that they're not supposed to publicly share – like this email that popped up on NeoGAF earlier this evening. We suspect that a...

Sony also pulling the plug on YouTube

This isn't going to do anything to reassure people that the PlayStation Vita is alive and well. Sony has announced this morning that it will be discontinuing support for the YouTube, Maps, and Near applications on its flagship handheld soon. The video streaming software will be delisted from the PlayStation...

Store Update: 27th January 2015 (North America)

27th January 2015 (North America)

Manny, oh man

This week's North American PlayStation Store update is all about the addition of two new titles: Dying Light and Grim Fandango Remastered. The heavy hitters have some company in Life Is Strange (out on Friday) and the verbose Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation – but we suspect that it's the aforementioned that will...

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (PlayStation Vita)

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (PlayStation Vita)

A real mouthful

We all know the dreaded curse of video game sequels. Studios will often find themselves with a hit on their hands, and in a feeble attempt to recreate gold, will instead serve up a horrible mess of lost potential. Japanese role-playing game Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation steers clear of this trap, instead...

UK Sales Charts: Saints Row Misses Out on Four More Years

Voted out

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected & Gat Out of Hell missed out on the presidency spot in this week's UK sales charts, clawing its way into fourth position overall.

Dying Light, Grim Fandango, and Life Is Strange

Spoiled for choice

We did put our series of PlayStation Store previews on hiatus over Christmas, but as with all of the other columns across the site, we're bringing it back with a vengeance. Remember, this is the latest information as shared by the PlayStation Blogcast, which means that the content is subject to change, and primarily applies to...

Grim Fandango Remastered's PS4 and Vita Trophies Pack a Platinum

Manny mad

The inconsistency between digital Trophies goes on, as it's been confirmed that Grim Fandango Remastered will come with a Platinum gong. It looks like the majority of the trinkets will pertain to the plot and specific actions, but there is a nightmarish addition: "Play the whole game with tank controls." The game has, of course, been...

Pre-order bonuses uncovered

Having covered games like The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy XV for almost the entire life of this very site, we can't help but smile when a title is officially announced mere months before release. One such game is Toukiden: Kiwami, which was only revealed a week or so ago, but is already closing in on its March launch...

Sony teases 'good selection'

It's that time of the month where we all begin building hopelessly unrealistic expectations for the next PlayStation Plus update – all so that we can vent our disgust when the actual offering doesn't come close to matching our pipedreams. Seriously, though, European PlayStation Blog manager Fred Dutton has revealed on...
