Top 4 PlayStation Games - January 2016

Witness this

It's already February, can you believe it? Nah, me neither – but at least this upsetting event means that it's Game of the Month time. That's right, your favourite voiceover man is back with another top four for you to flagrantly feast on. And unlike previous Januarys, the line-up is a proper corker this time.

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 104

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 104

Pasta master

Thinking up introductions to WAYP really is the bane of this author's week. It's immensely challenging trying to dream up new things to talk about in this space, but sadly it's part of the job. Today, your humble host is going to mention Spaghetti Bolognese, as it's something that Kell mentioned in his submission. Is there a more...

Review: Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'N' Tasty! (PS Vita)

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'N' Tasty! (PS Vita)

You've got the Oddworld in your hands

The Oddworld games are as beloved to PlayStation fans as MediEvil, Tomb Raider, and for some, even Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon. The bizarre adventures are certainly proof positive that PlayStation is home to an immensely diverse portfolio, but what's so great about Abe is that he still manages to stand...

Ninja Senki DX Brings Old School Platforming Action to PS4, Vita This Month

Shuriken handle it?

If you're itching for some classic platforming gameplay on PlayStation 4 or Vita, you may want to check out Ninja Senki DX, which is dashing onto both of Sony's consoles later this month. With retro 8-bit graphics, this is a platformer that certainly looks the part, as you take on the role of Hayate - a ninja out for revenge...

Is This a Gundam Game You'd Like to See Come West?

Fantastic plastic

At some point later this year, Europe and North America are getting their hands on a localisation of Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force - a Vita action title that's stuffed with numerous playable suits from Japan's biggest mecha franchise. However, VS-Force isn't necessarily the Gundam game that many fans actually want to see...

PS4 and Vita RPG Grand Kingdom Captures Confirmed Western Release Dates

A strategic summer

Grand Kingdom, a rather lovely looking role-playing title that features turn based battles, was confirmed for a Western release last month. The game puts you in the shoes of a group of mercenaries who take on contracts from warring nations, with your actions having a direct impact on your standing with each country. From what...

Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon Quest Builders Demolishes the Competition on PS4, Vita

Dragon Quest does it again

We've always known that Dragon Quest Builders would be a huge deal in its native Japan. Anything to do with Square Enix's now legendary role-playing series tends to sell ridiculously well in the Land of the Rising Sun, and this latest spin-off is no different. The Vita version of the title topped the software charts,...

News: Our First Real Look at Toukiden 2 Isn't Far Away

Our First Real Look at Toukiden 2 Isn't Far Away

Omega forced

Toukiden 2 popped up at Sony's Tokyo Game Show last year, but we've heard very little since. We know that it's going to adapt an open world approach, and we're big fans of Toukiden: The Age of Demons and semi-sequel Toukiden: Kiwami, so needless to say, we're looking forward to seeing more of the next release. Fortunately, we may not...

Almost Every EA Game Is Discounted In New European PSN Sale

Star Wars Battlefront, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and more

While it's nice that Europe's getting its own wave of PlayStation Store discounts starting today, it's a shame that it doesn't hold a candle to North America's latest sale, which boasts a very impressive amount of slashed software. Nevertheless, the Old World's deals certainly aren't...

Store Update: 2nd February 2016 (North America)

2nd February 2016 (North America)

Awakening

A really juicy week on the North American PlayStation Store this time, as Gravity Rush Remastered, Not a Hero, and Crypt of the Necrodancer all vie for your dollars. We should probably mention – as we forgot in the European article – that Call of Duty: Black Ops III's first DLC is out today, too. So that's good for those of you that…...

Get Digital with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth's Launch Trailer

Digital beats, anyone?

As you may have gathered from the tagline, this latest Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth trailer's got some tasty beats. We've often heard, however, that the game's got a pretty great soundtrack, so it comes as no real surprise. In any case, this is your standard launch trailer stuff, but we do get to see some battle and exploration...

North America's New PSN Sale Has Some Pretty Great Deals

Dark Souls, Dragon Ball, Battlefield, and More

North America's PlayStation Store has updated early for once, bringing a ton of new content for you to peruse. New titles include the likes of Crypt of the NecroDancer and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth but it's the store's latest batch of sales that are arguably worth more of your time here. Seriously,...

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Pins Down Exclusive Content on PS4, PS3

Sony's formats feeling the force

Just to follow up this morning's story: LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is real, it's coming out on 28th June, and it will sell better than a woolly jumper on Hoth. The game will re-tell the events from the movie – maybe you've heard of it? – and will also include some extra fiction that will bridge the gap...

Store Update: 2nd February 2016 (Europe)

2nd February 2016 (Europe)

Brace yourself

Look, let's be honest: we can barely keep up with the number of new releases arriving on the European PlayStation Store of late. And this week is no different, with Crypt of the Necrodancer, Not a Hero, Gravity Rush Remastered, and a slew of games that Ramsey's interested in all vying for your attention. Having said that, all that we...

Opinion: Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Platinum problems

Let's get one thing straight: Trophies are the least important thing when it comes to appraising a game. We'd recommend an amazing title even if it had no pots, because the act of actually playing a release is more important than the system-wide meta-game that surrounds it. Having said that, Trophies are an essential part of the...

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Becomes the Most Predictable Crossover Ever

Milk me BB one more time

Anyone else getting really tired of these LEGO games? Our understanding is that they sell exceptionally well, but gamers rag on Call of Duty's annual release schedule – when there tends to be three or four Mega Bloks-esque escapades crammed into a 12 month period. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the latest to roll out...
