Review: Fat Princess: Piece of Cake (PlayStation Vita)

Fat Princess: Piece of Cake (PlayStation Vita)

Royal fumble

You can't have your cake and eat it with free-to-play. The model's non-existent entry fee tends to pave the way for intrusive money making schemes, and in Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, it actually spoils what could be a mighty fine slice of iced sponge. Similar in concept to GungHo's uber-popular Puzzle & Dragons, this regal spin-off...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 52

Running late

Wow! It's been a breakneck, busy, bananas kind of week behind-the-scenes here at Push Square Towers, so apologies if our usual programming schedule has been a bit all over the place. The exciting news is that Monday's bureaucracy paved the way for Friday's exuberance, so this author is sitting here with a renewed sense of enthusiasm...

Act surprised

Another day, another chance to find out 2014 sales data. This time it's quite interesting, though, as Sony has shared lists of the best selling titles on the PlayStation Network.

DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive of 2014

Pulling ahead

It may come as a shock to many, but DriveClub, the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer that was plagued by launch issues, was the UK's best selling exclusive game of 2014. The full list, which comes from MCV, takes console bundles into account, but doesn't follow digital sales, so we can probably assume that the gorgeous drive-'em-up sold by...

You Can't Play Yakuza Zero on PS Vita, But This Skin Should Make Up for That

Nifty looking PlayStation TV, too

Yakuza Zero looks awesome. As the title's latest trailer proved, not only will you be able to engage in telephone answering minigames, but you'll also be able to train your own wrestler in the sequel. Of course, the game's currently only confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, which means that handheld...

14th January 2014 (Europe)

Dead kings

Parts of the UK are snowed in today, so it's a good job that you don't need to go outside to shop at the PlayStation Store. To be fair, this week's shelf refresh doesn't have a whole lot to shout about, with Joe Danger 2: The Movie and add-on packs for Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 being the only real highlights. Do you see...

Rock steady

Sony has readied your PlayStation Vita for the flurry of bad weather that's on the way, as firmware update v3.36 is available now.

Fill Your Face in Fat Princess: Piece of Cake on PS Vita

Sugar and spice

Who doesn't like a nice piece of cake? Whether it's a bold slab of Battenberg or a silky slice of Red Velvet, a well baked gateau will always get on well with the ol' gnashers. Of course, the majority of us know to stop eating when our stomach feels sore, but Fat Princess – the star of several PlayStation titles – has less...

13th January 2015 (North America)

Sweet 'n' tasty

We're now well into January, but the PlayStation Store is yet to wake from its post-Christmas slumber. That's ok, though, because this week is all about quality over quantity – and with Joe Danger 2: The Movie, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake, and, er, Brandish: The Dark Revenant in the pipeline, who could possibly argue? Here's what...

UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Holds Up Top Spot

Zzz

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has fallen from its perch atop the UK sales charts, with Grand Theft Auto V throwing it from its throne. Rockstar Games' sublime sandbox has enjoyed a resurgence of late due to the release of its PlayStation 4 port, and is likely to maintain momentum later in the month when the PC version is unleashed. To be...

Joe Danger 2: The Movie (PlayStation Vita)

Joe man's sky

While developer Hello Games has arguably moved on to bigger and better things with No Man's Sky, we suspect that Joe Danger will always remain a part of the Guildford-based outfit's DNA. The original game was a smash hit on the PlayStation 3, prompting the four-man studio's stuntman-like soar to popularity, and its successor, Joe...
