Review: Child of Light (PlayStation Vita)

Child of Light (PlayStation Vita)

Summer child

It took longer and was more brutal than a rap battle between J.R.R. Tolkien and George R.R. Martin, but Child of Light has finally made it to the PlayStation Vita. Those of you who have been desperately waiting to see what all the fuss was about can, after almost three months, join Aurora on her rather poetic quest to save the world...

Could Minecraft Be the PlayStation Vita's Secret Killer App?

Digging up something delightful

There’s a fair amount of chatter right now about Sony’s treatment of the PlayStation Vita, with numerous executives indicating that the firm’s slowing its support for the format. However, we get the sneaking suspicion that many are sleeping on Minecraft, which, with the right sort of marketing and bundles, could...

2nd July 2014 (Europe)

One spicy meatball

Games bring all of the boys and girls to the PlayStation Store, and there’s plenty to look forward to as part of this week’s European refresh. We suspect that the tasty treat at the top of your wishlist will be the hard-to-type PlayStation 4 re-release Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, but the Vita version of the...

1st July 2014 (North America)

Quick, catch up

July has somehow already arrived with gusto – and Sony has deployed a brand new batch of PlayStation Store goodies to celebrate. Yes, we’re a little late with North America’s latest update, but sports organisers will insist on running the World Cup and Wimbledon at the same time. Thank heavens this only happens once every four...

Loadsamoney

If you're a fan of Japanese visual novels, you've more than likely already heard of World End Economica – a new game by the writer of hit anime series, Spice and Wolf.

Just About Every Japanese Game You Can Think of Has Been Discounted in This Massive EU PSN Sale

Gifts from the East

Fancy nabbing some great Japanese games for your PlayStation 3 or Vita? Kicking off today in Europe, the PlayStation Store is discounting a frankly ridiculous amount of Eastern titles. The bountiful sale will last two weeks, so there's thankfully plenty of time to pick and choose your favourites. From almost every Final Fantasy...

Freedom Wars' English Story Trailer Will Leave You With a Raised Eyebrow

Living is a crime

If you didn't quite find yourself captivated by last week's 12 minutes of Japanese Freedom Wars gameplay, perhaps this three minute English trailer will do the trick. Thanks to the magic of subtitles, you can finally wrap your head around the handheld title's seemingly bonkers plot. Focusing on the release's cast of colourful...

Natural Doctrine Brings Tactical Monster Mashing to PS4, PS3, and Vita in September

Destiny can wait

Strategic RPG Natural Doctrine has been on our radar for many moons now, so we're happy to learn that it finally has a concrete western release date.

Matters of Import: Shining a Light on PS Vita's htoL#NiQ -Hotaru no Nikki-

Shining a Light on PS Vita's htoL#NiQ -Hotaru no Nikki-

Yes, that really is the title

Nippon Ichi, perhaps best known for its Disgaea role-playing game series, has recently released a new PlayStation Vita game in Japan that’s very different from its usual output. htoL#NiQ is a puzzle game, and is best – or perhaps most lazily – described as Japan's answer to monochrome indie die-lots-‘em-up...

Push Rewind: PS4 Firmware Updates, Valiant Hearts, and July's PS Plus Freebies

PS4 Firmware Updates, Valiant Hearts, and July's PS Plus Freebies

A good catch up

Push Rewind was conceived as a means to keep you up to date with the weekly happenings on Planet PlayStation, but seeing as this editor’s been holidaying as far away from computer screens as humanly possible over the past seven or so days, this should prove a really rather resourceful recap for your humble host, too. We’re...

Review: Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Mix it up

Shop keepers are an important part of almost every RPG, but they very rarely get the attention that they deserve. They focus a bunch of effort into putting together a nice collection of weapons and potions, and do they even get a spot in the final cutscene? Were they even asked? In Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland, you’re...
