PlayStation + June 2015 lineup back on track?

Next month's PlayStation Plus games have just been announced and it looks like the lineup has stepped things up a little after a few thoroughly average months. Or has it?

If you've already bought Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes during one of it's many placements in the PSN sales, then you could argue that you're looking at another decidedly indie lineup. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (ok, not very indie) is certainly worth a look if you didn't play it two years ago. The remaining titles range from the vaguely familiar (Cloudberry Kingdom) to the incredibly vague (Super Exploding Zoo).

Game of Thrones Episode 4: Sons of Winter Review | Finally making a stand

We’re now at the end of what is effectively the second act of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series, with only two episodes of its 6-part run left to come. As such, you can get up to speed by reading our reviews for Episode 1: Iron From Ice, Episode Two: The Lost Lords and Episode 3: The Sword In The Darkness. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.

Throughout the previous three episodes, it’s been clear that Telltale have done a fine job of making their version of Westeros feel authentic, but there has been one particular issue. While players have been able to make some key decisions, they have been subtle shifts towards the larger goal or, perhaps more to the point, ensuring the survival of House Forrester. There’s been a lot of “one step forward, two steps back” in that regard, but that finally changes in Sons of Winter. The Forrester’s finally fight back, climbing the ladder of chaos in a bid to take back what was lost, all of which makes this latest episode the most action packed one so far.

Destiny: House Of Wolves DLC Review | A Right Royal Ripoff

I love Destiny, but I have to laugh at how it relies on pompous nonsense to artificially create a sense of wonder and history. Or in simpler terms: Bungie gives things silly names to make them sound important.

House Of Wolves goes one step further by using flowery wordplay to create the illusion of meaningful content. The Prison Of Elders, Trials Of Osiris, Vestian Outpost and Skolas The Kell Of Wolves may all sound like incredible value for just £19.99, but in reality you're getting an arena horde mode, a weekend-only multiplayer event, tiny new social hub and a villain you'll only pursue for a few short recycled missions.

Indeed, most of the real 'content' comes courtesy of a few multiplayer maps, the aforementioned arena, a single new strike and the recent patch v1.20 (which is free for all, of course). So it's a good thing that House Of Wolves is so much fun, then.

Destiny: House Of Wolves DLC Review | A Right Royal Ripoff

The Queen is betrayed. Her pet Wolves have turned against their mistress and she is not happy. Throwing open The Reef to Guardians, she puts out an open call to arms for all those willing to pursue and break the Fallen traitors.

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix is fantastic value at £11.99

[UPDATE: It's now £1 cheaper at Wow HD - £11.99]

Save yourself a few quid with this deal for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix for £12.99 on PS3 - possibly the best price I've seen. That's a lot of Disney/Square-Enix mashup for your money.

If you're yet to pick up Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, you can pick it up for £10.99 at the same site.

Like the first collection, we’re getting the fancy pants versions of the games that were previously not seen on these shores. So you can look forward to Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and the formerly PSP-only Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix. A compilation of HD’d (yes, it is a word) cutscenes from the Nintendo DS title Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (not a word) has also been included to attempt to bring you up to date with the complex branching plotlines as the series has spread like wildfire across numerous consoles and handhelds. I’d be surprised if Kingdom Hearts III arrives this year, but even so, you better get cracking. Oh and Square, feel free to include Pixar stuff over Frozen, that snowman twerp is not joining my party.

COMMENT | It's time you gave Destiny another chance - even if you don't buy House Of Wolves

Stuck for something to play this weekend? How about the copy of Destiny that you're currently using as a coaster. Go on, dust it off. Put it in the drive and reinstall it.

Destiny's second expansion, House Of Wolves, released this week. You can read our first impressions here , which praises the new additions including the fantastic Prison Of Elders mode while complaining about the story questline and other features. All-told it brings a lot to the Bungie's controversial shooter, but believe it or not, it's also worth playing Destiny again even if you don't buy the new content.

COMMENT | It's time you gave Destiny another chance - even if you don't buy House Of Wolves

Like many early adopters, I was crushingly disappointed by Destiny when it first launched and even uninstalled it before the year was out. Back in January, however, I realised that there must be a reason why so many people still enjoy it and I soon discovered what it was. Destiny is a superb social experience that can be enjoyed on your terms, dipped into daily alone or with friends, cooperatively or competitively, which completely changes the way you engage with it. Played little and often, it's an satisfying blast and I've been hooked ever since.

I'm glad I did, because much has changed for the better and even more improvements are now free to enjoy regardless of whether you own the expansion.

This new edition includes lots of DLC, superior visuals, faster frame-rate and remxied item/enemy placements to throw off the veterans too. Be sure to take a look at Jon's review.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance £3.99 on PS3

That's right, this excellent slice and dice title you forgot to buy a few years ago is now only £3.99 on PS3. Enjoy!

Platinum Games really rescued this one when they took over development. While stealth is sometimes an option, Rising is much more fun when played with the pedal to the metal. One minute you slicing up troops with meticulous precision, then you're running up the sides of missiles in mid air, or you're taking on three Metal Gears at once. This is not a subtle game. Put it in your face now.

Destiny: House Of Wolves Launch Impressions | The Kell Has No Clothes

I've come to love Destiny over these last few months. Despite being crushingly disappointed at launch, I gradually realised that it's a great social experience that fits around your real life and gaming commitments, perfect for a strike here and a daily story mission there followed by a quick blast in the Crucible. Sure, the so-called "Raids" are hilariously repetitive, but Destiny's fun is evergreen and mechanically exceptional.

However, there's no denying that it's crying out for extra content. Which is where House Of Wolves comes in.

A far cry from The Dark Below, which used its Raid as an excuse to flog a pathetic amount of stuff at a breathtaking price point, House Of Wolves is much meatier and rides the crest of a major update. A new social space, new questline, new horde mode, new gear, level cap increase and three/four new Crucible maps certainly seems to be a generous offering, so I double-jumped right in as soon as it launched.

Destiny: House Of Wolves Launch Impressions | The Kell Has No Clothes

I've had a blast as always, but unfortunately what seems to be a huge wodge of content is far less substantial than it first appears. As is so often the case with Destiny, the emperor has no clothes. Or the Kell has no combat regalia to be more precise.

Steins;Gate character trailer celebrates the impending European launch

Steins;Gate is rightfully hailed as one of the best visual novels of all time. With great writing and a deep Sci-Fi premise, it eschews fanservice in favour of a fantastically realised universe complete with some excellent characters.

Which brings us to today's trailer. You can now see the cast in action ahead of Steins;Gate's localised European launch on June 5th for PlayStation Vita and PS3.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is worth investigating for £3.64 on PS3

Always wanted a tactical third-person tactical shooter that seems like a mashup between Mad Men and X-Files? Well, we've got your oddly specific tastes covered right here as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is only £3.64 on PS3.

This was initially set to be a FPS title, but after the success of XCOM: Enemy Unknown -and a bit of fanboy outrage- 2K opted for a third-person perspective and shoved in some tactical options to make it more in-line with the traditional XCOM experience. It's a little rough around the edges and full of all the grey corridors you can imagine, but there's fun to be had ordering around your Mad Men-era squad. The story is surprisingly strong in parts too.

Destiny: House Of Wolves is out today - here's the release schedule

Destiny: House Of Wolves releases today, and not before time. The second expansion promises to deliver a massively replayable PvE horde mode, a new questline, new social space, gear and more. Alongside three new Crucible maps that I'm looking forward to especially, even if much of the content appears to have been ready months in advance if not before launch.

It's all set to kick off at 10 AM PDT/ 1 PM EDT/ 6 PM UK.

Note that there are likely to be a few connection issues throughout the day as new updates are rolled out and deployed, but there's still time to scoop up some of the Queen's Bounties if you need to. They're a lot of fun.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is ridiculously good fun for £14.85 on PS3

"One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is a hectic and unapologetically over-the-top brawler that's worthy of the license. If you're a fan of the anime or just fancy a more vibrant and exciting take on the Dynasty Warriors franchise, it's hard not to recommend this weighty serving of colourful catharsis." - One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 review

Great price, which we've rarely seen beaten (and even then, usually on the US PlayStation Network). One for the anime fans, but an absolute blast nonetheless.
