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...

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.

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...

Still not finished

22nd October 2014 (Europe)

Break the rules

The early bird always catches the worm, so we guess that we’ll be forced to feed on scraps for posting the European PlayStation Store update so darn late in the day. We’d blame the delay on traffic, but, well, that’s not strictly true. Either way, a rival saying states that you’re better late than never – and we happen to...

Bring the bleat back

Have mercy upon us, great gaming gods, for we cannot cope with the software overload that you’re subjecting us to. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update may be light on heavy hitters, but it more than makes up for any shortcomings in sheer girth. Highlights include Samurai Warriors 4, The Legend of Korra, and
