News Disco Elysium Fans Should Keep an Eye on New PS5, PS4 Game Broken Roads
Out in 2023
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is widely considered to be one of the best RPGs of the past few years — probably even more so when you dig into its sub-genre of computer RPGs. The problem is there aren't too many games like it on consoles, but that's about to change on PS5, PS4 with a new title named Broken Roads hitting the two systems...
News First Class Trouble Is Among Us in a Retro Future Setting, Free for PS5, PS4 on PS Plus
Social deception party games are the new Battle Royale – sort of! The upcoming PlayStation 5 and PS4 title First Class Trouble, published by Versus Evil, will be free on PS Plus from 2nd November – as previously leaked. “At the beginning of each game, you’ll be randomly assigned the role of either Resident or Personoid,” the
News First Class Trouble Is Among Us for Society's Elite
Coming to PS5 and PS4
Among Us may look like a game for kids, so if you're someone a little more wealthy and planning to at least match expectations, why not go for something a little more highbrow? First Class Trouble will likely suit those expensive tastes, coming to PlayStation 5 and PS4 in the future. It's obviously heavily inspired by...
News Tongue-in-Cheek Topdown Metal Gear-Like Title UnMetal Sneaks to PS4 This Month
If you’re hankering for some old-school Tactical Espionage Action that doesn’t take itself too seriously, then UnMetal is the retro Metal Gear throwback you may be looking for. Due out on 28th September for PlayStation 4 (but playable on PS5 through backwards compatibility, of course), this tongue-in-cheek sneak-‘em-up sees you assume the...
Mini Review Hitchhiker (PS4) - Intriguing Concept Can Be Monotonous
A Hitchhiker's guide to philosophy
In a world of fast-paced action and strategic decision making, sometimes it is nice to play the role of a bystander. Hitchhiker is a game that prides itself on taking you through a journey, instead of letting you create your own path. The end result is a monotonous but thought provoking journey that is closer to an...
News Mystery Game Hitchhiker Lifts a Thumb at PS4 This Week
Atmospheric narrative game Hitchhiker, in which you play as an amnesiac riding shotgun along a dusty highway, will hop aboard the PlayStation 4 from 15th April – after attracting rave reviews on Apple Arcade. The award-winning mystery sees you piecing together your memories “by catching rides with strangers across the country who...
Review Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Technical Problems Derail an Otherwise Superb Sequel
Push Square die-hards will doubtless recall that back in 2017 we gave Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition a glowing review, bestowing upon it a well earned 9/10 to take home for its mum to put on the fridge. It was both a love letter to old school, all-time classic role players like Baldur's Gate and Planescape Torment, and a title...
News Old School RPG Sequel Pillars of Eternity 2 Loots a January 2020 PS4 Release Date
Dead and loving it
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire released back in 2018 on PC, and it was met with a lot of praise. The Obsidian-crafted role-playing game is a supposedly much improved sequel to Pillars of Eternity -- a title that's already stuffed full of old school RPG goodness. Anyway, Deadfire's finally got a PlayStation 4 release date, with...
Review The Banner Saga 3 (PS4)
Iver bad feeling about this
The Banner Saga 3 is a fitting end for the light tactical RPG series, and one that feels less like a sequel and more like the third act of a cohesive whole. The combat system used in the series up until this point remains relatively unchanged, and most of the mechanics are carried over as is. This isn't about reinventing...
News The Banner Saga Vita Version Cancelled More Than a Year After Its PS4 Debut
The saga's over
It's never nice to hear that a project's been cancelled, but the writing was on the wall with this one. Tactical role-playing title The Banner Saga was announced for the PlayStation 4 and Vita all the way back in 2014. The former launched in January of last year, but the latter was never given a concrete release date. Clearly,...
State of clay
Armikrog begins with such promise. Your introduction to this claymation world is a long and wonderfully weird theme song that serves as a prologue of sorts, and it leads into a beautifully animated cutscene that really showcases the talent on board. Many of the minds behind this Kickstarted adventure game are also responsible for The...
Review The Banner Saga 2 (PS4)
Stop! Banner time
Few games are as relentlessly bleak as The Banner Saga 2. It begins right after the climax of the previous game, but regardless of your prior choices, the story will play out largely the same; the dredge (a relentless horde of warriors) are hunting down the remaining humans and varl (hulking, horned giants), in the wake of past...
News Gorgeous RPG The Banner Saga 2 Marches onto PS4 This Summer
Hurrah, PlayStation enthusiasts won't have to wait two years for The Banner Saga 2! The lovely looking strategy role-playing game launched on PC in March, but unlike the previous title, which took around 24 months to come consoles, the sequel will find its way to Sony's system within a reasonable amount of time. "We are happy that...
The banter saga
Finally setting foot on consoles after a long and probably cold wait is The Banner Saga – an addictive, intricate role-playing experience that's set in a world with a dead sun. Hulking giants known as varl exist alongside humans, and old, almost demonic foes are threatening the peace that both races have worked hard to establish...
News Did You Buy Afro Samurai 2 on PS4? You Can Now Get a Refund
Yes, it's that bad
Wow, this is quite the rarity. Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma launched on PlayStation 4 last month, and it was met with super low review scores and the pure scorn of many fans. The game was plagued by bugs both big and small, a horrible frame rate, and some craptastic gameplay - and now, it's being removed from the PlayStation...
You're Toren us apart
Toren marks the first release by Brazilian developer Swordtales, and is the latest of the smaller indie titles to grace the PlayStation 4. Sony's console seems like a great fit for the foray, too, as it takes a huge helping of inspiration from a PlayStation 2 classic, ICO. Of course, while drawing influence from such an iconic...
News Toren Comes of Age on PS4 from 12th May
Inspired by ICO
There's a nice backstory to Toren, the debut PlayStation 4 project from Brazilian indie Swordtales. The game stars a young girl named Moonchild, who grows over the course of the adventure into a strong and powerful woman. And writing on the PlayStation Blog, the humble developer likened this to its own journey as a game development...
News The Banner Saga Headlines Fresh Selection of PS4 Indie Games
Ever since it started to submerge itself in the world of indie games, Sony has developed a habit of announcing dozens of titles in one swift swoop. And that’s exactly what the platform holder’s done today, once again highlighting just how awkward the game creation module in this website’s content management system is to use. Sort it...
