First Impressions: Is Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Princely on PS4?

Is Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Princely on PS4?

King me

We've had our eye on Arslan: The Warriors of Legend for quite some time, and that's mostly because Omega Force – the developer behind almost every Warriors-esque game under the sun – has a solid track record when it comes to merging already existing properties with its trademark hack and slash action. The likes of Dynasty Warriors:...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 101

It's cold

Winter has arrived. No, really – the greenery of the UK has turned an icy shade of white, and we've reverted to performing star jumps in the Push Square office just to stay warm. It's been a bit of a quiet week here in the PlayStation Nation, but a deluge of new releases are about to deploy, so we may as well make the most of the down...

25 Games That Prove PlayStation Vita Ain't Dead Yet

Alive and kickin'

Stop! Pack up that PlayStation Vita shaped coffin and plop your posterior on a pew: Sony's smallest system may not possess the unstoppable popularity of the PlayStation 4, but if going mainstream was really considered cool, then we'd all be rocking Bieber barnets and humming the chorus to Love Yourself. No one wants to do that,...

Sony Marks PlayStation Plus' Five Year Anniversary with Stats Plaques for Lifers

Life sentence

If you think that PlayStation Plus is bad now, this author can remember when the monthly update included a retro Mega Drive title, a PlayStation Mini, and a handful of PlayStation 3 themes. The service has changed exponentially since then, and as a reward for lifetime members sticking with the subscription model for all five years of...

Why I Don't Hate The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Anymore

Bitchin' witchin'

I stopped playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on 6th June, swore off it for life, told colleague Robert Ramsey that he'd Made_A_Huge_Mistake.gif awarding it a 10/10, and spent the following six months ridiculing everyone for liking a game in which following a floating foetus is widely regarded as its best bit. I was wrong. Y'see,...

We've only gone and reached our 100th edition of WAYP – an occasion that would be worth marking if this author hadn't got in a muddle and assumed that this week's instalment was actually Issue 99. Whoops. Oh well, at least we've got a bumper article this week for you, with virtually every Push Square team member turning out in force...

While it gives a great picture of ju

Oculus Rift's $599 Price Is Positive News for PlayStation VR

Five hundred and ninety-nine US dollars

We suspect that there may be a few smiles at Sony HQ today as the game of chicken regarding virtual reality pricing has finally come to an abrupt end. It's felt for a while like each of the major VR manufacturers have been waiting for each other to make the first move, and Oculus has faced the unenviable...

20 Japanese PS4 Games to Watch in 2016

Beasts from the East

At this point in the PlayStation 3's life, many disgruntled gamers would have told you that Japan's software outlook was bleak. Sony's homeland was struggling to adapt to the new high definition era, with developers seemingly unable to get a firm grip on working with fresh hardware. It was a tough time to be a fan of Japanese...

Hype merchants

2016 is shaping up to be a major year for the PlayStation 4, and while we can't wait to get our grubby mitts on many of the system's upcoming titles, we thought that we'd take this opportunity to think about potential games that haven't been officially announced yet. As such, we've come up with a list of 12 titles that we'd love to...

Fallout 4's Biggest Improvement Is Stealth

Michael acknowledges the Commonwealth’s underappreciated undercover

Note: There are minor Fallout 4 story spoilers in this article. Fallout 4 does a lot of things wrong. The dialogue system is a mess, the perk tree feels dumbed down, and the lack of choices throughout the game is disheartening. You've probably heard those complaints a thousand...
