Review: Don't Starve: Giant Edition (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Don't Starve: Giant Edition (PlayStation Network - Vita)

The mysterious beyond

Our review for roguelike survival title Don't Starve and its Reign of Giants expansion discussed the gaming equivalent of Marmite. With its unforgiving, trial-and-error gameplay, it will either leave you in utter frustration, or hook you like fellow crafting sim MineCraft. But with the title now available on the PlayStation...

Store Update: 14th October 2014 (North America)

14th October 2014 (North America)

Take your pick

Has anyone else got a better introductory sentence? These weekly PlayStation Store updates come around so quickly that we feel like a broken record at times. Still, we suppose that complaining about that fact gives us a new lead in to this North American refresh, which hosts the likes of The Evil Within and Borderlands: The...

Out This Week: Borderlands, The Evil Within, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, Peggle 2

Borderlands, The Evil Within, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, Peggle 2

Oh my goodness

Holy schnitzel, if you thought that last week’s edition of Out This Week was stacked with an insurmountable number of new releases, then this instalment is in a whole different league. With the summer being comparatively barren for new PlayStation software, we’re not sure why developers big and small have decided to deploy their...

Review: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus (PlayStation Vita)

Well rounded

First impressions count for a lot in this fickle industry. Whether it's art style, design choices, or DLC policies, it's surprisingly easy to lose all interest in a game that doesn't initially match up to your personal preferences. For Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, this is a big problem, as from the word go, you're bombarded by big,...

No Fair! Japan's Getting The Unfinished Swan on PS4 and Vita Next Week

Still not finished, apparently

You may recall a rumour that was floating about the internet late last year which suggested that PlayStation 3 classic The Unfinished Swan would be recklessly flinging paint onto the PlayStation 4. The speculations were soon shot down, but we've kept our fingers crossed ever since. Apparently all our appendage-based...

Killzone: Mercenary Prepares for PlayStation TV with Patch

Show stopper

We’re not entirely sure why Sony’s opted to delay the PlayStation TV for a month in Europe, but those of you in North America will be able to wrap your hands around the nifty little microconsole starting from tomorrow. And in order to celebrate that momentous occasion, Guerrilla Cambridge has deployed a timely patch for Killzone:...

News: Fencing Sim Nidhogg Strategically Shuffles onto PS4 and Vita This Week

Fencing Sim Nidhogg Strategically Shuffles onto PS4 and Vita This Week

En garde

If there's one thing Sony's system's are sorely lacking, it's games about fencing that feature giant cosmic worms which devour the inferior player. Luckily, Nidhogg is here to fill that hideously underrepresented niche. The inventive indie joins recent PlayStation Plus freebie Sportsfriends as an example of smaller developers making...

News: Tales of Hearts R Cuddles Up to PlayStation TV Next Month

Tales of Hearts R Cuddles Up to PlayStation TV Next Month

Love at first sight

Hotly anticipated PlayStation Vita JRPG Tales of Hearts R is striding gallantly towards its 11th November and 14th November launch in North America and Europe respectively – but there’s one last piece of good news for Bandai Namco to share before the title sticks its sword into store shelves. Indeed, those of you not keen...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 42

Chirp, chirp

The songbirds will keep on singing, and we’ll keep on playing video games. With the thrust of the holiday season now in full swing, there’s no shortage of titles to choose from – as is evidenced by the variety outlined by our team of writers below. Of course, with reviews to write and news to report on, there’s no real time to...

News: PlayStation Experience Pledges a Peek into the Future of PS4

PlayStation Experience Pledges a Peek into the Future of PS4

Breathe slowly

This came out of nowhere, didn’t it? Sony has announced a two-day community event in Las Vegas named PlayStation Experience, which promises to offer an “exclusive first look at what’s coming next in 2015”. This could just mean that the platform holder’s going to allow attendees to get some hands-on time with the likes of...

First Impressions: Take a Minute to Learn About One of PS4's Hidden Gems

Take a Minute to Learn About One of PS4's Hidden Gems

60 second smash

Without meaning to sound like a jaded so-and-so, the one problem with reporting on video games is that they rarely have the ability to surprise. As an infant, this particular editor used to relish trips to underground game stores where shelves of import titles gazed gleefully back – every single one of them a mysterious entity...

Game of the Month: September 2014 - Destiny

September 2014 - Destiny

Destined for greatness

It comes as little surprise, but September was a great month for gaming. Signalling the beginning of the holiday rush, it was packed with enjoyable releases and subsequently high scores, which made our always intense staff vote all the more interesting. This isn't the first time that we've argued amongst ourselves regarding...

Store Update: 8th October 2014 (Europe)

8th October 2014 (Europe)

No Wei

As is the case in North America, it’s a big week for the European PlayStation Store as well. Highlights include, of course, Alien: Isolation and DriveClub – but there’s also a little title called Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition supposedly set to deploy this Friday, too. No, we had no idea that it was out so soon either.

Store Update: 7th October 2014 (North America)

7th October 2014 (North America)

Holy moly

They say that the PlayStation 4 has no games, but by goodness does this PlayStation Store update argue differently. There are a total of eight new titles to choose from in this week’s North American refresh, as well as a bunch of PlayStation 3 and Vita releases, too. Oddly enough, there’s no mention of the DriveClub: PS Plus Edition,...
