  • News Level Up Your PSN Library with North American RPG Flash Sale

    Praise the sun

    There are certainly no shortage of role-playing games on the PlayStation Network, and as part of a new North American promotion, you'll be able to pick up 15 fan favourites on the cheap. The sale includes Western and Eastern titles alike, with notable classics such as Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and the fiendishly difficult...

  • Store Update 4th June 2014 (Europe)

    Producing perfection

    Being a detective isn’t easy at the best of times, but we suspect that it’s a teensy bit more difficult when you’re dead. That’s the predicament that Ronan O’Connor faces in Murdered: Soul Suspect, the supernatural thriller from Square Enix. While ghosts are at the forefront of this week’s European PlayStation Store...

  • Store Update 3rd June 2014 (North America)

    Murder on the dancefloor

    If you still think that the PlayStation 4 is suffering from a drought, then we’re not entirely sure what planet you’re living on anymore. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update features five new games, including the intriguing Murdered: Soul Suspect and PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate. Moreover, you’ll now be...

  • News Sleep Easy, The Wolf Among Us Will Arrive in Europe for the Weekend

    Counting sheep

    When Telltale Games dropped the bomb that The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 wouldn't be arriving in Europe this week, we got a glimpse of what it feels like to be protagonist Bigby himself. Fortunately, we can keep calm and carry on, as the release will actually come out of hiding on 30th May. While the delay has been less than a week,...

  • Store Update 28th May 2014 (Europe)

    Plenty of buzz

    We’re aware that our Watch Dogs puns have become more tiresome than the classic Nokia ringtone, but if you could just hold your temper for one second, then we’ll hang up our funny hat. Unsurprisingly, it’s Ubisoft’s open world adventure that’s the hot new addition to the European PlayStation Store this week, but honourable...

  • Store Update 27th May 2014 (North America)

    Keep watch

    We suspect that this week’s headline addition needs no introduction, as open world adventure Watch Dogs is available now on the North American PlayStation Store. Assuming that you have some leftover time and money, however, there are a handful of lighter bites to keep you occupied, including Lemmings Touch, Mind Zero, and Monster...

  • News Europe Is Left Out of The Wolf Among Us' Release Next Week

    This little piggy had none

    We're used to Telltale's antics by now, though the announcement that The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 is arriving the week after The Walking Dead will be a curve ball to many, especially for those of you building up a backlog. However, it seems like us Europeans have no choice but to plug our ears in order to avoid spoilers,...

  • News PS4 Exclusives Discounted on European PlayStation Store

    Knack punches Killzone's price

    The price of PlayStation 4 games have been nothing short of extortionate in the UK since launch, with some titles retailing at up to £64.99 ($110) depending on where you shop. Fortunately, the figures are slowly starting to come down, with both Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein: The New Order commanding much more manageable...

    The new order

    It’s a scorching week on the North American PlayStation Store, with more new releases than you can shake a stick at. Highlights obviously include Transistor and Wolfenstein: The New Order, but Sparkle 2, Drakengard 3, and a slew of new PSone imports are vying for your attention, too. What are you buying?

    Inception

    While we're no stranger to anime themed titles on PlayStation consoles with Dragon Ball and Naruto making almost yearly visits, it's rare for any but the big names to come and play. But thanks to its overwhelming popularity, Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, a PlayStation Vita tie-in of the worldwide smash hit, will be swinging its...

    Review The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 3 - In Harm's Way

    Deeper down the rabbit hole

    When writing reviews, it’s always important to avoid spoilers, that way you don’t ruin the experience for future players. This is a particular conundrum that we face each time that Telltale Games releases new episodic content, as each instalment builds upon the last, making our lives a misery as we attempt to dance...

  • Store Update 14th May 2014 (Europe)

    Big hit

    It’s a slightly meatier European PlayStation Store update than North America this week – even if that is primarily because we’re playing catch up in these parts. After an unexpected delay, MLB 14 The Show is now actually available on the PlayStation 4, while Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars has finally made the long journey...

  • Store Update 13th May 2014 (North America)

    Black magic

    There’s not a whole lot of girth to the latest North American PlayStation Store update – but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a big week for PlayStation Vita owners. Fans of Sony’s flagship portable format will be able to pick up both Borderlands 2 and Soul Sacrifice Delta – two tasty titles that should add a little spice to...

    Review SoulCalibur: Lost Swords

    En garbage

    Forget about missing blades, we suspect that the folks at Bandai Namco may have misplaced their minds while developing SoulCalibur: Lost Swords. This wretched free-to-play fighter serves up the gaming equivalent of seppuku, except the ancient Japanese suicidal rite isn’t riddled with obnoxious loading times, and thus is preferable to...

  • Store Update 7th May 2014 (Europe)

    Flamin' heck

    Coming up with interesting introductions to these PlayStation Store updates becomes a challenge after a while, so we’re just going to dive straight into this European refresh and hope that no one notices the distinct lack of effort. At least the platform holder’s put a little more thought into its digital plaza’s latest publish,...

    Strike a light

    MLB 14 The Show is the main addition to the North American PlayStation Store this week, promising to hit a homerun for the first time on Sony’s next-gen format. Despite launching on the PlayStation 3 and Vita earlier in the year, this PlayStation 4 version promises visuals so pretty that you’ll struggle to keep your eye on the...

    The indie scene on Sony's consoles is flourishing, with more unique and interesting games being added every week – but the same can't be said for titles made by Japan's smaller development teams. We could, however, be seeing the arrival of more bizarre releases in the future, following the announcement of Eiyuu Senki - The World Conquest...

  • Game of the Month April 2014 - Child of Light

    Out of the dark

    April may not have equalled March's onslaught of great games, but it still managed to play host to a number of smaller titles that ended up occupying large chunks of our time. Enjoyable downloadable releases were aplenty, with the likes of Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Trials Fusion, and Child of Light all vying for Push Square's coveted...

    The space combat genre seems to be making something of a comeback lately, with releases like Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut lighting up the dark corners of space. As such, it’s only right that the PlayStation Vita should get its own spaceship game, and Starlight Inception by Escape Hatch Entertainment is a Kickstarter project...

  • News Heartless Americans Thought Tokyo Jungle Was Woof

    Doggy doo

    Tokyo Jungle is the most bafflingly barmy game to grace any console over the past five years. Outpacing even Octodad: Dadliest Catch in the odd department, the ridiculous roguelike sees you assume the role of a variety of animals, as you attempt to survive in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. However, while we utterly adored the animal centric...

It’s been accompanied by survival horror Daylight and superhero...

SingOn tries to solve this problem by going with a subscription model, allowing instant anytime...
