PlayStation Game Reviews
The works of H.P Lovecraft have seen something of a resurgence of late and not just inspiring games like Bloodborne, but more direct adaptations as well. Call of Cthulhu is a video game adaptation of the board game more than the book of the same name directly, but the Cthulhu mythos created by Lovecraft is everywhere.
Evasion is designed for co-op play and fun afternoons blasting aliens in the face with a friend while listening to a heavy metal soundtrack and dropping smack talk on your fictional foes. Unfortunately, if you can’t find someone to play with, it’s a rather repetitive shooting gallery that has you wishing you knew someone to jump online with you.
Dylan & Ashley discuss a lot of PSVR stuff they've been playing and dive into the latest Days Gone news with a fresh trailer in the wild.
The challenge was set and the trophy war began in January of 2017. Dylan & Ciaran both aiming to smash their targets each... and well, I mean we all know Ciaran didn't do well. Dylan, however, has reached his goal and talks through the Platinums that lead him to his goal of 169 (nice) Platinum in 2018.
What gifts await Dylan and Ash under the Christmas Tree from Santa? Well before they open them, how about going over the 5 most wanted PlayStation gifts they'd want to receive and rounding out the end of the year with a few final bits of news including PS5 rumours & the Dreams Beta arriving.
PlayStation has released a short video detailing your most played games on PS4 and your trophy stats under the #MyPS4Life hashtag. Dylan and Ashley go over each of their stats — discovering some interesting tidbits — before diving into the fact that Sony has access to this data, and why don't we?
Ash's PSVR unit has arrived and so Dylan gets to work on asking him everything about his experience so far; everything from his thoughts on the unit itself, to the games he's been playing is covered.
Dylan and Ash dig through their PSN trophy lists to talk about everything they've played this year and try and sort some games on to potential lists. One for games you'd like to go back and finish or play more of, games you'd like to go back and Platinum, and games you'd like to go back and wrap-up the 100% on.
Beat Saber has released for PSVR and Dylan is finally able to play it after months of build-up and luckily, it's as great as he thought. He discussed the games modes, tracks and potential for DLC songs and modes with Ashley while breaking down if he's horrible at the game or not.
PlayStation has announced they won't be attending E3 in 2019 in a shocking and bold move. What does this mean for E3 and does this tease the coming reveal of the PS5? Dylan & Ash break down all that and give their predictions for the potential PlayStation 5.
