Vibrant Vita Brawler Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Picks a Fight with Western Territories

Girl power

There’s enough doom on Planet PlayStation Vita to keep id Software in business until the sun implodes, but that doesn’t mean that the handheld is dead yet. In fact, 5pb has quietly announced that the system’s mere days away from receiving a secret smash: pixelated punch-‘em-up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds. Originally...

Review: The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (PlayStation Vita)

The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (PlayStation Vita)

Screw loose

If the well of original PlayStation Vita content is drying up, then its fountain of high-definition re-releases is overflowing. The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy is the latest in a long line of PlayStation 2 compilations to nonchalantly sidle onto Sony’s struggling handheld system, following closely in the slipstream of the God of War...

16th July 2014 (Europe)

Something good

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update has a nice summer feel; in other words, there’s so little on offer that you may actually be forced to head outside and enjoy the warm weather. If that’s a frightening prospect for you, there are a few worthwhile additions this week, including...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Teddie vs. Kuma

Teddie vs. Kuma

Round 21

Ah, good old Who Would Win Wednesdays – a feature where we pit two PlayStation personalities against each other and ask you how you think that the battle would unfold. Last time around, we had our first ever group match between the Payday Gang and the GTA V Gang. Perhaps surprisingly, it turned out to be an incredibly close contest, but...

Bloodlust

We hope that you haven’t cleared your backlog yet, because there’s not a whole lot to get excited about in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. Gory twin-stick shooter Crimsonland is arguably the most noteworthy addition, while artsy sidescroller Abyss Odyssey is also up for grabs. We’re convinced that the latter...

Stripping Sim Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed to Get Naked in October

NIS America undressing European edition

When you strip away its saucy art style, Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed is essentially a brawler set in Tokyo’s electronic district, Akihabara. There’s a little more to it than that, though, as your objective is to expose evil entities masquerading as everyday people – and relieve them of their...

UK Sales Charts: Watch Dogs Reconnects with the Top Spot

Hanging on the telephone

After a few weeks with shoddy signal, Ubisoft’s sandbox smash Watch Dogs has re-established a connection with the summit of the UK sales charts. The title had been obstructed by Sniper Elite III, which has slipped into second position this week. FIFA 14 mirrored the Netherlands in third, while Wolfenstein: The New Order...

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited Looks Bonkers and Brilliant in This Vita Trailer

Looks prinny good

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited recently had a new and characteristically bonkers trailer drop. The portable version is actually an enhanced port of the PlayStation 3 game that released a few years back. If that sounds exciting, you'll be glad to hear that the title will be launching quite soon: 17th August in North America, and...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 31

Fruit cocktail

This particular editor may have been lost at sea and unable to steer the ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’ ship last time around, but dry land is once again beneath your humble host’s feet, and so normal service has resumed. Not that replacement Robert Ramsey did a bad job – he actually remembered to contact the rest of the...

Watch As We Recap June's Best PlayStation Games

Valiant effort

Ding dong, E3 is dead – and that means that order has been restored here at Push Square Towers. That’s right, as opposed to sitting staring intently at computer screens, we’re now all bickering over whether the Dynasty Warriors franchise is actually any good. It’s not, but it still bloomin’ made its way into our June Game of...

Bite me

There are a couple of unexpected additions to the European PlayStation Store this week, with both 1920s trumpet-a-thon Jazz: Trump’s Journey and ghoulish bicycle simulation Skeleton Rider pedalling onto the PlayStation Vita. Other anticipated additions include season finale
