PlayStation Game Reviews
I remember watching the 1976 Storm Boy film based on the novel of the same name by Colin Thiele in school as a kid and really enjoying it, although I assumed it had been made for fifty dollars.
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.
Sony Bend released a new trailer for Days Gone with a wedding theme. Ashley and Ciaran give their thoughts and question if it will shift people’s interest in the next Sony exclusive.

Insomniac Games are celebrating 25 years as a studio this year, so Dylan and Ash take a look back at all of the studio's releases, particularly those most important to the PlayStation platform.
Media Molecule finally lifted the NDA and the translucent wall that was keeping all the juicy things being made in Dreams hidden (kinda) secret, so it's time for Dylan and Ash to discuss what people have been dreaming up.
With Sony putting together a brand new studio with great talent right in front of our eyes, it's hard to not put the piece together and wonder: is that for Uncharted 6? Dylan and Ashley discuss the potential of another Uncharted game and who and what they'd like it to be about.
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?
