Review: Welcome to Hanwell (ps4).

Reviewer’s note: The second and third pictures below are saved screenshots of my gameplay experience in Welcome to Hanwell. They were uploaded from my ps4 to my Twitter then saved to my laptop via Windows 10 Snipping Tool and uploaded to AIR for this article. Any loss in fidelity or crispness of images is from the compression/decompression process and not a reflection of the game, which looks buttery smooth and sharp as a tack. [Update: Our apologies, but some images have had to be removed due to the over sensitive…

Review: Slayaway Camp – Butcher's Cut for PS4.

Blue Wizard Digital has just released the console version of their indie puzzle title Slayaway Camp on PlayStation 4.  Launched last October on Steam, the title has also been ported to iOS (February) and Android (June), but it now comes to Sony’s console in an expanded and very pretty edition as Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut.  AIR Entertainment was given a review code for the title and I was fortunate enough to nab it.  Here’s what’s up. I’ve played Slayaway Camp on my iPhone 6s+ so I knew going into the PS4 version that the…

Sony Released A New PS4 Controller For Tiny Hands

So Sony has just licensed the Japanese company Hori to create a new controller that is 40 percent smaller than the current controllers. It’s mainly meant for younger children due to its small size but adults with quaint hands may enjoy it as well. The new controller is called the Mini Wired Gamepad, and yes, as the name suggests, the controller will be wired (with a 10ft cable) to the console.

Review: White Noise 2 (ps4).

PlayStation VR – The Best of Year One.

A year ago today, Sony released PlayStation VR, a major gamble for a console publisher commonly known for giving up on its hardware peripherals – in fact if it weren’t for PSVR, my PlayStation Move controller would still be collecting dust with its nunchuck counterpart and my Wonderbook (remember that?).  Since then, over 100 games have been released for the virtual reality system and more are coming almost every week.  Today I wanted to look back from A to Z at just a handful of the best titles that have…
