Love definitely isn't over
The rumours were right: Catherine remastered for PlayStation 4 is real -- except it's also heading to Vita. We didn't see that one coming.

First Impressions Catherine on PlayStation 3 Demo
Video games can be quite immature
Even when they come attached with mature age ratings, the content inside can often feel like the opposite. Enormous guns, vats of gore and over-sized breasts are not necessarily indicative of what it means to be mature, in fact they are the antithesis. Few games capture the essence of adulthood. For all its faults,...

News As Shakespeare Famously Wrote: Catherine Or Katherine?
Personally we'd rather be with a girl called Katherine
Nothing against the Catherines of the world, but there's something a bit more exotic about the way Katherine looks on paper, isn't there? It stands out on the page like a misspelled word. It just looks better. Plus you can call her "Kay". And "Kay" sounds better than...

News Do You Ever Want To Get Married?
That's the question posed by the latest trailer of Catherine, which features the first ever footage of the puzzle-platformer in English
In truth, the trailer's a little bit goofy, with numerous "fans" discussing whether they want to get married. We quite like the guy that implies getting married would ruin his life. We also like the fat...
News Catherine Screens Aren't Always The Most Exciting, Are They?
While we continue to be of the opinion that Catherine looks properly amazing, we're just not convinced screenshots do it the greatest of justice
