What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 137

The calm before the storm

The holiday season is well and truly upon us, which means that this week probably represents your final opportunity to clear your backlog – unless you're already busy with FIFA 17, of course. The coming weeks will see the introduction of a not-so insignificant number of games, including Mafia III, Battlefield 1, and more...

Review: Lichtspeer (PS4)

Lichtspeer (PS4)

The reich stuff?

For fear of repeating ourselves, one thing that the PlayStation 4 certainly isn't short of is creative, unique, and sometimes downright bizarre indie titles. Just when we think that we've seen it all, along comes developer Lichthund with its arcade javelin-em-up Lichtspeer to prove us wrong. Ported to Sony's system by Crunching...

News: Mafia III Reviews Will Remain in the Bayou Beyond Launch

Mafia III Reviews Will Remain in the Bayou Beyond Launch

Gangster's nightmare

Mafia III releases on 7th October globally, but don't expect to find a review on Push Square – or any site worth your time for that matter. 2K Games informed us recently that code would go out on launch day, and Polygon has since confirmed that to be the case for other outlets around the world. In other words: you probably...

News: Rocket League Will Probably Score PS4 Pro Support

Rocket League Will Probably Score PS4 Pro Support

OMG! OMG!

A bit like when Psyonix pooled community interest in the PlayStation 4 release of Rocket League and we posted about how it absolutely had to happen because it would be the best thing since sliced bread, Psyonix now wants to know whether you want a PS4 Pro update for the car-soccer smash. Which, of course, you do, so we're glad that's...

Final Fantasy XV's Car Radio Features a Ridiculous Amount of Music from Past Games

That's a lot of good listening

In case you didn't already know, the car radio in Final Fantasy XV is chocked full of past Final Fantasy songs - and by chocked, we mean packed to the point of bursting. From the original Final Fantasy all the way through to Final Fantasy XIV and even spin-offs like Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the track listing covers a...

Skyrim's Superb Soundtrack Will Bellow in Concert This November

Music from the frozen North

Coinciding with the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on the 28th October, Bethesda has revealed that the game's superb soundtrack will be adapted into a one-off live concert in London. Titled Skyrim in Concert, Jeremy Soule's score will be performed by the Winterhold Philharmonic Orchestra and...

Review: FIFA 17 (PS4)

FIFA 17 (PS4)

Signing of the summer

Another year, another FIFA review, although this time around, there's actually a reasonable amount of new stuff to talk about without having dig deep into the finer - and frankly quite boring - technicalities of tweaked gameplay mechanics. Taken as a whole, FIFA 17 is the biggest step forward that the sports series has seen in...

Soapbox: I Played PlayStation VR for Over an Hour and Didn't Chunder

I Played PlayStation VR for Over an Hour and Didn't Chunder

Sammy's not seasick

Until this week, my time with PlayStation VR had been very limited. The longest I'd probably spent strapped in to the headset in one session was maybe 15 minutes, so I hadn't really had an opportunity to test how it feels to play virtual reality in extended sittings. Luckily, I was invited up to Rebellion on Wednesday, where I...

Hands On: Battlezone's PlayStation VR Co-Op Is Brilliant Fun

Battlezone's PlayStation VR Co-Op Is Brilliant Fun

Cockpit moshpit

What more is there to say about Battlezone right now? The forthcoming PlayStation VR launch title is absolutely a must-own, but you already knew that when we previewed it earlier in the year. This week we were invited back up to Rebellion to feast our eyes on the final build, and our opinion hasn't really changed: the Oxford-based...

Join the Mile High Club with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Trailer

Use Soap

It's comfortably the greatest Call of Duty campaign ever made, and now you have the opportunity to re-experience Modern Warfare remastered for the PlayStation 4. To build hype, Activision has released an all-new trailer for what is effectively a jumped-up Infinite Warfare pre-order bonus. Looks good, though, doesn't it? Will you be paying...

Hands On: Little Nightmares Is a Spooky PS4 Surprise

Little Nightmares Is a Spooky PS4 Surprise

Sweet dreams

You wouldn't expect a puzzle platformer to be one of the pleasanter surprises at EGX 2016. Perhaps the booth should have been a better indication; Little Nightmares wasn't stuffed away in the corner of the convention, but instead commanded centre stage, with an elaborate labyrinth-like setup involving towering drawers and dressed-up...

DriveClub VR Races at a Reduced Rate for Seasoned Veterans

Just a drifter

DriveClub VR is, for all intents and purposes, a brand new game. But those of you who've been supporting the racer since the very beginning will be able to hop into the driver's seat at a reduced rate, Sony has announced. The platform holder's discounting the game to €19.99/$19.99 on the PlayStation Store, if you bought the main...

Bleep Buttons Beware! PS4 Sucks on Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition's D*ckt*ts

Son of a d*ck

Potty-mouthed first-person shooter Bulletstorm will swear up a storm on the PlayStation 4, as the Brazilian games ratings board has listed the obscene slaughtering simulator for Sony's new-gen system. Dubbed the Full Clip Edition, the title will be published by Gearbox Software and developed by People Can Fly, after the Polish studio...

Embrace Your Awful Social Life with SportsBarVR on PS4

For the loners

Got no friends to go to a real sports bar with? PlayStation VR's got your back, as the makers of Pool Nation have announced SportsBarVR – a new multiplayer social experience that will allow you to chug drinks and play pool in virtual reality with up to six other people. It's clearly very cool technology, but it's all a bit tragic...
