Review: Demon Gaze (PlayStation Vita)

Demon Gaze (PlayStation Vita)

Should have gone to Specsavers

When Demon Gaze first burst onto the scene in Japan last January, it sold 25,316 physical copies in its first week alone, outselling Compile Hearts' Monster Monpiece which launched on the same day. Subsequently, PlayStation Vita owners outside of Japan rejoiced as Kadokawa Games’ dungeon crawling success story was...

MLB 14 The Show is the main addition to the North American PlayStation Store this week, promising to hit a homerun for the first time on Sony’s next-gen format.

Could the Latest God Eater 2 Patch Make a Western Release Plausible?

Best played with friends

While most games can travel West without being lost in translation, others can lose some of their innate charm. God Eater 2, which released last year in Japan for the PlayStation Vita, is one such game that's suffering from similar cultural setbacks as its predecessor. Equipped with a quick and easy local multiplayer mode...

Game of the Month: April 2014 - Child of Light

April 2014 - Child of Light

Out of the dark

April may not have equalled March's onslaught of great games, but it still managed to play host to a number of smaller titles that ended up occupying large chunks of our time. Enjoyable downloadable releases were aplenty, with the likes of Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Trials Fusion, and Child of Light all vying for Push Square's...

No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either! (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Not badman

The world of free-to-play gaming may be fraught with peril, but that doesn’t mean that there’s absolutely no fun to be had. Retro inspired puzzler No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either! represents yet another foray into this potentially deadly minefield by Sony. But is its classic gameplay enough to elevate it above the competition, or...

Review: Titan Attacks (PlayStation 4)

Titan Attacks (PlayStation 4)

Attack on Titan

When it hit arcades, Space Invaders revolutionised video games, making what was viewed by many as a novelty into a global industry. At that same time, it also provided inspiration for a legion of today’s game developers, and this influence is abundantly clear in Titan Attacks from British developer Puppygames. Coming to the...

Review: Muramasa Rebirth (PlayStation Vita)

Muramasa Rebirth (PlayStation Vita)

Radiant revival

While most widely known as the family-friendly home console featuring a myriad collection of party games and fitness titles, the Nintendo Wii was also home to some of last generation’s better adult-oriented forays. Many of these titles got swept under the rug due to poor sales and a missing target audience, but some received much...

Starlight Inception (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Failure to launch

The space combat genre seems to be making something of a comeback lately, with releases like Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut lighting up the dark corners of space. As such, it’s only right that the PlayStation Vita should get its own spaceship game, and Starlight Inception by Escape Hatch Entertainment is a Kickstarter project...

Forget Minecraft, Indie Puzzler MouseCraft Hits PS4, PS3, and Vita on 8th July

Modest mouse

We know that Sony said that it would be putting a bigger focus on indies, but we didn't think that it'd deliver on that promise in such a big way. Indeed, it seems that we can't go a day without another announcement of a new title making its way to the Japanese giant's hardware. And while we certainly appreciate the flood of content,...

This little light of mine...

... I'm gonna let it shine. Oh, sorry about that, we didn't see you there. Ahem. It's time for another 'What Are You Playing This Weekend', in which the majority of the team will be delving into a little game that our very own Mat Growcott described in his review as a "painted paradise".

This Weekend, You Can Buy a Bunch of PS3 Games for $5

Shut up and take our money

Valve, is that you? Sony may have been the laughing stock of the digital plaza discount world less than six months ago, but it’s really upped its game over the past few weeks, announcing a slew of sales that have our wallet literally groaning at the prospect of cheap PlayStation 3 games. This latest batch comes care of...
