Who Would Win Wednesdays: Alduin vs. Bahamut

Alduin vs. Bahamut

Round 11

We're now so far into Who Wins Wednesdays that we've had to start using numbers when it comes to typing out the tagline. We've had ten features leading up to today's duel, with the last battle ending up as a win for everyone's favourite alien, Garrus Vakarian. In an attempt to keep things feeling fresh, we're going to move away from gun...

Review: The Sly Collection (PlayStation Vita)

The Sly Collection (PlayStation Vita)

Anthropomorphic excellence

While the Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank trilogies are widely regarded as the pinnacle of the PlayStation 2’s platforming fare, it’s Sucker Punch’s criminally underrated Sly Cooper series that stole this humble editor’s heart during the early-to-mid 2000s. Depicting the globetrotting antics of a light...

Review: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PlayStation Vita)

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (PlayStation Vita)

Born to try

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is one of the strangest games that you’ll ever play. Its premise – which, in essence, revolves around mating – provides an odd starting point, but get past this and you’ll find a surprisingly enjoyable excursion that’s only really let down by repetition and some unnecessarily sexual...

Prepare for PS Vita Pets with Smartphone App Puppy Parlour

Is that a puppy in your pocket?

While shareholders plead with Nintendo to put their properties on iOS and Android devices, Sony is already casually doing just that. The platform holder recently released Knack’s Quest, a companion to the PlayStation 4 adventure created by Japan Studio – and now it’s followed up with PlayStation Vita

Sony Stupidly Sets PSN Maintenance for Easter Monday

Bunny boiler

There’s a long weekend on the way – but Sony seems eager to encourage you to go outside and play. Apparently, the platform holder is planning a period of PlayStation Network maintenance starting 16:00PM BST on 21st April through until 04:00AM BST on 22nd April. There’s nothing especially abnormal about that – aside from the fact...

Failed Kickstarter Citizens of Earth Is Destined to Save the World After All

We need you

Have you ever backed a Kickstarter only to have it fall short of its target goal, never to see the light of day? This was the fate that befell Citizens of Earth, an Earthbound-inspired RPG in which the vice president of the world must save the planet from destruction with the help of ordinary citizens. It seems that this game was...

Drinkbox: People Don't Understand the Purchasing Power of PS Vita Owners

Portable powerhouse

It’s true that the PlayStation Vita is struggling outside of Japan. In a post-smartphone world, the handheld has found it difficult to match the hardware sales expectations put upon it, and it’s become an afterthought for most major publishers as a result. Despite this, though, the system remains a haven for indie outfits...

Vita Will Be Rotting Away This Week with Dead Nation

Walking with the dead

If you haven't already had your fill of the apocalyptic blast-'em-up that is Dead Nation, you'll be able to experience it on the go very soon. Originally shown at E3 2013, the zombie infested shooter is finally making its way to the PlayStation Vita this week in North America and Europe. Both the PlayStation 4 version, which...

Review: Dead Nation (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Dead Nation (PlayStation Network - Vita)

The portable dead

Dead Nation was announced for the PlayStation Vita at E3 last year, and then was promptly forgotten about. A port for the PlayStation 4 came and went, offering the ultimate version of the zombie-filled twin stick shooter for fans who wanted better graphics and all of the DLC. Finally, almost as an afterthought, Housemarque’s...

Family affairs

As if the news that both Soul Sacrifice Delta and Freedom Wars are heading West wasn't enough, you'll also be glad to hear that the lesser known Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines will be joining them. Cursed with a maximum lifespan of two years, the JRPG sees you lead your clan on a quest to end the curse with the help of divine beings...

Fate brings us back together

The re-release of Sony’s twisted demon slayer Soul Sacrifice Delta will coerce you into some complicated decisions next month, as the platform holder has attached a Western deploy date to the overhauled adventure.

Phantasmagorical

We learnt that fighting title BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma would be making a beeline for the PlayStation Vita earlier in the year, but unfortunately weren't given a firm release date. Luckily, Aksys Games has recently announced that the title will be hitting both stores shelves and the PlayStation Store on 24th June. Who ever said...

Management, Morpheus, and Minecraft

The calm before the storm

There’s no doubt that we are now deep in the pre-E3 lull. Sony may have hastily announced The Last of Us Remastered this week, but we get the distinct impression that it didn’t want to. As such, we suspect that any Earth shattering stories that hit the headlines over the coming months will be leaks from the Los...
