New balls, please

The weekend has finally arrived, which means that it's Wimbledon finals time.

Lightning strikes twice

Before you start, yes, we're well aware that there seems to be a new Warriors game hitting the market every other month, but given the recent quality of Koei's hack and slash franchises, we're not too worried - at least, not yet.

Yu and Rise Step It Up In Persona 4 Dancing All Night's English Trailers

Dance for the truth

Persona 4 Dancing All Night is coming West later this year, and to be totally honest, we can't wait to give it a go. Sure, the idea of dancing to save your high school buddies is just a few steps away from being overly ridiculous, but when the game looks as fun as this, it's hard to care.

Review: Oh, Deer! (PS Mobile)

Oh, Deer! (PS Mobile)

Buck up

There's no doubt about it: Oh, Deer!'s got ample game – just not necessarily the right kind. NecroSoft's last hurrah for Sony's ill-fated PlayStation Mobile initiative epitomises everything that the programme should have stood for: it's accessible, affordable, and utterly outlandish.
