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...

Store Update: 1st July 2014 (North America)

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.

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

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...

Review: Monster Monpiece (PlayStation Vita)

Monster Monpiece (PlayStation Vita)

Cover-up girl

It’s fair to say that Western support for the PlayStation Vita has dwindled in the past year or so, setting the stage for several Japanese ports to step up and plug the hole. None, however, are more questionably sexualised than Monster Monpiece; a card game where leveling up monster girls by rubbing the handheld’s touchscreen in a...

Pop Bugs Zap Brings Free-to-Play Touch-Based Puzzling to the Casual PlayStation Mobile Crowd

Those poor bugs

A platform that's perhaps overlooked far too often, PlayStation Mobile is home to quite a few hidden gems, and you can even play them using your slick little Vita. Whether they're addictive puzzle games or reflex-based challenges, there are plenty of smaller titles to sink your teeth into when you feel like passing the time...

July's PS Plus Update Slashes with Strider and Teases with TowerFall Ascension on PS4

Dead Space 3, Vessel, and LEGO Batman 2 bring up the rear

Hold onto your hats, because July's PlayStation Plus update has been officially announced. As rumours suggested, Capcom's slick slash-'em-up Strider and intense indie TowerFall Ascension make up the upcoming month's PlayStation 4 offering. Elsewhere, the ageing PS3 gets scary with the...
