Rock steady

Sony has readied your PlayStation Vita for the flurry of bad weather that's on the way, as firmware update v3.36 is available now.

Fill Your Face in Fat Princess: Piece of Cake on PS Vita

Sugar and spice

Who doesn't like a nice piece of cake? Whether it's a bold slab of Battenberg or a silky slice of Red Velvet, a well baked gateau will always get on well with the ol' gnashers. Of course, the majority of us know to stop eating when our stomach feels sore, but Fat Princess – the star of several PlayStation titles – has less...

13th January 2015 (North America)

Sweet 'n' tasty

We're now well into January, but the PlayStation Store is yet to wake from its post-Christmas slumber. That's ok, though, because this week is all about quality over quantity – and with Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, and, er, Brandish: The Dark Revenant in the pipeline, who could possibly argue? Here's what...

Stop the Press, PSN Will Be Undergoing Maintenance This Week

Gasp

Believe it or not, the PlayStation Network is undergoing maintenance later this week, and as per usual, it seems to be of the standard sort. "During this time, we will deploy a series of back-end improvements to the network," Sony says. The service will be impacted on 15th January, and the maintenance will last four hours, from 17:00PM GMT to...

UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Holds Up Top Spot

Zzz

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has fallen from its perch atop the UK sales charts, with Grand Theft Auto V throwing it from its throne. Rockstar Games' sublime sandbox has enjoyed a resurgence of late due to the release of its PlayStation 4 port, and is likely to maintain momentum later in the month when the PC version is unleashed. To be...

Review: Joe Danger 2: The Movie (PlayStation Vita)

Joe Danger 2: The Movie (PlayStation Vita)

Joe man's sky

While developer Hello Games has arguably moved on to bigger and better things with No Man's Sky, we suspect that Joe Danger will always remain a part of the Guildford-based outfit's DNA. The original game was a smash hit on the PlayStation 3, prompting the four-man studio's stuntman-like soar to popularity, and its successor, Joe...

Review: Joe Danger (PlayStation Vita)

Joe Danger (PlayStation Vita)

Not so dangerous

Joe Danger was a stunt hero, right up until he bit off more than he could chew and ended up hospitalized. It was a gruelling process, but he's back on his bike, and only you can help him to get back to the top. Expect to spend a huge amount of time flying through the air, making the kind of landings that'll make reproducing all but...

Review: Woah Dave! (PlayStation Vita)

Woah Dave! (PlayStation Vita)

Danger Dave

If brevity is the soul of wit, Woah Dave! must be the funniest game we've ever played. This retro-inspired arcade title shows you just about everything it has to offer within 30 minutes of the first time you see its title screen. However, this seemingly simple gameplay belies a deep and incredibly satisfying experience. Our hero – a...

There Are a Few Destiny Fans Somewhere in the Galaxy

Xur about that?

Destiny didn't come anywhere near the top of our internal Game of the Year poll, but you lot did pick it as your Silver Trophy in our community vote. Indeed, it would appear that Bungie's intergalactic shooter is a lot more popular outside of Push Square Towers' hallowed walls, as the sci-fi affair has also topped the

Sonic boom

PlayStation's fairly recently established Third-Party Productions division may be one of the platform holder's most ingenious ideas in the past five years, but we'll have more on that in a future article. Either way, the fruits of its labour are really starting to show right now, with the likes of Ultra Street Fighter IV coming to the...

Could Sony Break Out a New Version of Freedom Wars?

The prisoner

Savvy consumers will do well to wait before splashing out on hunting titles like Soul Sacrifice, as the genre tends to demand that an updated version must deploy a year or so after the original. Freedom Wars, which was a gigantic success upon its launch in Japan last year, could well be no different either, as Sony is teasing...
