I'm your GPU
Shortly after PlayStation 5’s launch, we had the amazing opportunity to talk with Kenny Young, composer on the absolutely brilliant Astro’s Playroom (as well as Astro’s previous adventure, Astro Bot Rescue Mission). Join us as we talk about navigating the legacy of PlayStation and its music, the design process behind the catchiest...
Where the wild things are
Bonding with Trico is a magical, emotional experience throughout The Last Guardian. The story-driven and mechanical themes of teamwork are spread throughout Fumito Ueda's projects whether you're playing alongside Agro or Yorda, but it's even more intimate with Trico since you're immensely dependent on each other. Wondering...
Kind of a colossal deal
We reported earlier today that several trademarks were filed by Sony, including a curious renewal for Shadow of the Colossus. Well, it seems as though this giant rumour has turned into a giant reality, since the masters of remastering, Bluepoint Games, are authoring a remake of the beloved 3D platforming adventure by...
Hitting the right notes
Another year gone. Times flies, doesn't it? 2016 may have been, erm, less than stellar in a lot of respects, but the games industry was by no means one of the problems. Quality reigned supreme across so many titles it's hard to keep track. Not to be left behind, though, was the music from these games, which delivered some top...
Knack on wood
Knack was a fine 3D platformer. It stumbled with its story, struggled with repetition, and lacked challenge with its level design, but we think it had a lot of potential to improve. So, it was hard to believe that Mark Cerny's, err, most important legacy would ever receive a sequel, but against all odds, Knack 2 will be building its...
Praise the colossi
We had no doubt that The Last Guardian would be making an appearance at Sony's E3 2016 conference, but we remained skeptical as to whether we'd get a release date or not. Thankfully, Sony hasn't let us down, finally unveiling that the continually delayed title will grace the PlayStation 4 on 25th October. The date was revealed in...
Not long now
Freedom Wars is one of a dying breed of AAA exclusives for the PlayStation Vita. The jaunty JRPG has been on our radar for quite some time, but it was only recently confirmed to be coming to Western shores. However, Sony had originally planned to only release a digital version of the game in Europe, but
For the players
In the words of William Wallace: "They may take our lives, but they'll never take our Freedom Wars physical copies!" Indeed, after a few weeks of petitioning, Sony has finally decided that PlayStation Vita JRPG Freedom Wars will be getting a full retail release in Europe. The title was unpopularly planned to be a digital only title,...
Please don't go away
Did you enjoy Japan Studio's melancholy masterpiece rain, but felt that the experience was entirely too digital? Then you'll be excited to hear that the game will be getting a limited edition boxed version. The previously download-only title will also come packed with a slew of extras, including four PlayStation 3 themes and...
The usual suspects
Sony may have lost the Monster Hunter franchise to another manufacturer, but it's desperately trying to claw back the deficit with titles such as Freedom Wars. The multiplayer battle game is set to release exclusively on the PlayStation Vita this summer in Japan, and a batch of new screenshots have left us itching for our fix...
Don't Knack it till you try it
When he's not busy reminding us that he gets to play Metal Gear Solid 5 and we don't, it seems that Hideo Kojima, the director of the acclaimed stealth series, spends his precious spare moments testing out the competition. The professional provocateur recently took critical
The Ape Escapes this Summer
The time for Ape Escape to finally make its debut on the PlayStation 3 outside of Japan is finally approaching. Ape Escape Fury! Fury! released a few months ago in Japan, but an official release outside of Japan has yet to be heard. Today that changed when the PlayStation Blog announced that PlayStation Move Ape Escape is...
The Ape's for the Kids
Ape Escape fans have been craving a new console entry in the series for years, and it’s finally close to being upon us. Ape Escape Fury! Fury! brings a unique style of gameplay to the franchise that can only be possible with the power of Move, and we recently got to catch a few Apes for ourselves. Ape Escape became a fan...
