Review: Actual Sunlight (PS Vita)

Actual Sunlight (PS Vita)

Actually depressing

Depression is a fairly common mood disorder that, despite its frequency, is still not considered a serious issue by many. Sadly, some people think that a simple attitude change will fix all of the ailments; that it's a self-inflicted state of mind. This is simply not true. Actual Sunlight by Will O'Neill is a short, interactive,...

11th August 2015 (North America)

Master of the universe

Ready for a humongous North American PlayStation Store update? Good, because that's exactly what Sony's got in store. Highlights obviously include Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Goat Simulator, but Toy Soldiers: War Chest and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition are also in with a shout. And then there's... Nope, we've run out of...

11th August 2015 (Europe)

Baaaaa

We still haven't got used to the European PlayStation Store update coming before the North American one, but there's no time to dwell as we've got new releases to list. Let's not beat around the privet bush: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is the big'un this time. Honourable mentions must go to Goat Simulator and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition,...

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Goat Simulator, Gauntlet: Slayer Edition

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Actual Sunlight, TorqueL, and more

The excitement of Gamescom 2015 may have subsided, but that's okay, because there are about a billion new PlayStation games due out this week. Alright, we're exaggerating a teensy bit, but considering that it's the summer, such an enormous roster of new software is practically...

UK Sales Charts: A Rare Change at the Summit

Blast from the past

Xbox One exclusive Rare Replay shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts in a desperately slow summer week, securing the legendary British developer's first number one since Banjo-Kazooie all the way back in 1998. Elsewhere, last week's frontrunner LEGO Jurassic World moved down into second, while Batman: Arkham Knight,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 79

Inner smile

The Premier League season is back underway, so that means that this author will be spending the next ten or so months composing WAYP with half an eye on the BBC text updates. Of course, this article isn't about football, but the PlayStation games that will be keeping you company all weekend. Here's what our team are up to. Sammy Barker,...

Gal Gun: Double Peace Plans on Bringing Its Risqué Pheremone Business West on PS4 and Vita

Careful now

If you've ever seen footage of Gal Gun: Double Peace, then you'll know why we put the word 'risqué' in the headline. The shoot-'em-up sees you blast away infatuated schoolgirls with the power of love against colourful backdrops, and for some, it's bound to be one step too far into the realm of weird, but at least we're seeing an...

Review: J-Stars Victory VS+ (PS Vita)

J-Stars Victory VS+ (PS Vita)

Star-crossed

J-Stars Victory VS+ is actually quite a snug fit on the PlayStation Vita. The bite-sized battles feel like they're just the right size for a quick spot of portable play, and the graphics arguably look crisper than they do on the big screen. This is the same game that you can get on the PlayStation 4, which we've already covered in more...

Japanese Sales Charts: Nothing to See Here, Go Back to Gamescom News

Off you go

Imagine writing a story about the Japanese hardware and software charts on a day when every game under the sun is getting Gamescom 2015 coverage. An atrocious process for all those involved, we're sure that you'll agree, but we do this every week, so we suppose that we're bound by duty. So, what's happening in Japan? The answer: bugger...

Mighty No. 9 Misfires, Delayed Until 2016

Not so mega, man

Mighty No. 9 will indeed say nein to its previously planned 15th September release, as Comcept has confirmed in a since pulled forum post that the Mega Man-esque escapade has been delayed. The news follows the conclusion of creator Keiji Inafune's failed Red Ash Kickstarter – we're sure there's absolutely no connec

There are currently no details on how the game plays, but we do know that it's being developed by Omega Force - the studio behind the Warriors games. It's not like it's got much else going on, right?

4th August 2015 (North America)

Submerge yourself in the PlayStation Store

As in Europe, this week's North American PlayStation Store update is a little on the light side – although the likes of Submerged and Galak-Z should hold your attention until some of the heavier hitters arrive a little later in the month. There's also the continuation of Sony's scorching summer sale, so...

4th August 2015 (Europe)

The calm before the storm

Barring a few downloadable titles, it's slim pickings this week on the European PlayStation Store. Galak-Z is the headline PlayStation 4 act, while Submerged also sloshes onto Sony's latest console, but other than that, there really isn't much to write home about. In fact, this is probably one of the smallest updates that...
