    One for the parents

    The Last of Us is certainly not a game intended for children, but its themes are very family orientated.

    Playing together

    PlayStation 4 launch title Knack hasn’t exactly proven the gem in the system’s software selection that some gaming relics had hoped – but is it any more successful at entertaining a younger audience?
