What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 127

Feelin' hot, hot, hot

As scorching temperatures here in the UK continue to melt away our productivity, we're not sure that we can even be arsed playing games this weekend.

We Unboxed a Brand New PocketStation

Because why not?

With our attempts at creating meaningful YouTube content either drawing indifference or ire, we figured that we'd do something really dumb today – like, unbox a brand new Sony PocketStation dumb.

The Best Games on PS4 - Summer 2016 Edition

Cream of the crop

We've Found PS4's Dumbest Game to Date

Kiss and swell

Gal*Gun: Double Peace won't win many awards – but it'll probably be crowned PlayStation 4's dumbest game when the generation is done and dusted. This rails shooter by Inti Creates won't get you on the sex register – but it probably should. A kind of Time Crisis for people who can't keep their trousers on, the idea here is that...

Hands On: Is King of Fighters XIV on PS4 Worthy of Its Royal Title?

Is King of Fighters XIV on PS4 Worthy of Its Royal Title?

Return of the king

Some of us here at Push Square are looking forward to King of Fighters XIV. Honest. Which is lucky, given that a playable demo landed on the PlayStation Store yesterday, giving us a chance to try out this somewhat divisive entry in the series – and we're happy to report that the title shows great promise. But first, let's...

Will You Pay Full Price for Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4?

It's a Lara money

The rumour that Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to release on the PlayStation 4 on 11th October prompted some pretty interesting discussion here on Push Square this weekend. According to the GameStop Italy listing – from which this entire story stems – Square Enix will be charging around €70 for the port, which suggests that...

No Man's Sky, Dead Rising, EVO 2016

Welcome to the fantasy zone

It's not been a very interesting week here on Planet PlayStation, with most of the big stories stemming from No Man's Sky, which is now just about three or so weeks away.

Time out

With the Great Weekend of Sport over, it's time for the Great Weekend of Gaming – at least that's what we're dubbing it here at Push Square Towers. There may not be many major titles deploying at the moment, but there are some decent offers on the PlayStation Store – and we've all got backlogs to bust. Here's what we're playing. Kell...

Is Sony Scared of Xbox's Scorpio?

Neo way

Microsoft jumped feet first into the iterative hardware space at E3 2016, announcing Project Scorpio for… Well, the end of 2017! Sony, on the other hand, opted to keep the PlayStation 4K closer to its chest, confirming that it is working on an upgraded console, but refusing to share specifics until the platform is officially announced...

Soapbox: Destiny's Grimoire Cards Are Pretty Awesome

Destiny's Grimoire Cards Are Pretty Awesome

A glimpse at what could have been

Destiny is famous for a lot of things, but a strong and structured storyline is most definitely not one of them. In fact, it's more renowned for telling you that it doesn't have time for a plot.
