How To Use The PS4 Web Browser

If you are tempted to use the web browser that comes with your PS4, and I do realise that many of you probably are not, then perhaps one of the first things to note about it is that it does not support the Flash plug-in.

PES 2016 Review

If, like me, you felt the urge to look up what the initials PES actually stood for before reading any further, then I’ll quickly put you out of your misery – it’s Pro Evolution Soccer. I know you knew that, I just had to explain, just in case. ‘Realistic’, ‘atmosphere’, and ‘overall feel’ are all words which I’ve seen used…

LEGO Jurassic World Review

Jurassic Park seems to be everywhere at the moment, except of course this incarnation is known as Jurassic World, so perhaps I’m showing my age when I refer to Jurassic Park. Not that you’ll be interested, but I watched it on a family holiday to Florida in 1993 at the age of 13, and those velociraptors scared me shitless. So,…
