Ninja'd

Every year the Push Square Team gets together to vote for the site's PlayStation Game of the Year. While we usually keep these polls secret, we're putting the spotlight on some of our authors this holiday so that they can highlight some of their personal favourites from 2015. Today it's the turn of Stephen Tailby, as he spotlights...

News: We Wish You a Very Merry Christmas

We Wish You a Very Merry Christmas

For the festivities

I write this on a dark and dreary Wednesday evening ten or so days before Christmas. The build-up to the festive period is always stressful here at Push Square: personal business is complemented by frantic holiday writing, as we attempt to get our Game of the Year coverage in order and tie up any loose ends before we take a day...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This... Christmas?

What Are You Playing This... Christmas?

O come all ye gamers

'Twas the night before Christmas and all round Push Square, the team were playing Rocket League in abhorrent knitwear. Sammy was scoring goal after goal. "Stop," screamed Robert, "Or you'll be getting coal!" So we changed the game – TowerFall the choice. And we all played till Christmas in jovial voice. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

Game of the Year: #9 - Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (PS4)

#9 - Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (PS4)

Shock and Yaughton

The beauty of Everybody's Gone to The Rapture is its quiet. This is a game about an apocalypse, which doesn't feature any explosions. A game about a deadly virus, which doesn't feature any zombies. A game about a community at war, which doesn't feature any guns. Instead, it tasks you with piecing together the story of the...

Hardware Review: The Perfect PS4 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit for the Clueless

The Perfect PS4 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit for the Clueless

We take a look at Oyen Digital's 1TB option

Let's cut right to the chase: if you're anything like us, that 500GB hard drive that's sat inside of your PlayStation 4 since launch is becoming a growing hassle. You're probably having to delete older games so that you can install new ones, and every time that there's a hefty patch to download, you get...

Push Rewind: Kojima Picks PlayStation, PS4's Report Card, and Sony's 2016

Kojima Picks PlayStation, PS4's Report Card, and Sony's 2016

One more time

It's been a quiet week on the site as we prepare our Game of the Year coverage, but one big story did hit the headlines over the past seven days: Hideo Kojima has formed a new studio and is partnering with PlayStation to develop his first post-Konami title. This is the last edition of Push Rewind until 2016, but don't worry, because...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 98

Yes, we're late

No, we will not miss a week. Sorry about the delayed article, y'all – your humble host had some holiday plans today, so we're well aware that this is hours later than it should be. But love is certainly not over, as this author has scaled to the top of the esoteric brick puzzle named life and delivered you your regularly scheduled...

PS4 Report Card - How Has Sony's Format Fared in 2015?

Constructive criticism

It's the end of term, and that means that its report card time. It's been two years since the PlayStation 4 launched, and the heady days of Jack Tretton's big E3 2013 beatdown are now a distant memory. But while Sony can attribute a chunk of its new-gen system's success to those pre-release pounces, has the manufacturer kept...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 97

Deck the fools

Apparently it's already 12th December, which means that many of you are probably just realising that you have Christmas gifts to buy and decorations to assemble. Gulp. There's still time to get all of that sorted, though, so we recommend shirking your responsibilities and sitting pretty with your PlayStation platform of choice...

What PS4 Screenshots Have You Been Sharing? - Issue 5

High five

Well would you look at that, it's already time for another issue of Push Share. We've once again cobbled together some of our staff to find out what they've been playing, subsequently pestering them for their favourite PlayStation 4 screenshots. Indeed, we love that share button here at Push Square - so much so that editor Sammy Barker...

Why the PS4's Share Button Is the Greatest Innovation of This Generation

Antisocial editor Sammy Barker gets social

I've returned to the familiar hearth of the PlayStation 3 to review Yakuza 5 which released this week. Reacquainting myself with the last-gen format always proves a wake-up call each and every time that I go back to it: the Trophy syncing system, the patching process, the slow downloads – I'm not sure...

We Launch Our Limit Breaks on Episodic Final Fantasy VII Remake Reports

Squaaaaaaaare!

So, Final Fantasy VII Remake isn't going to be one game. The news rocked the very foundation of the Push Square office earlier today, but even though we're still reeling from the shock, we've managed to get editors Sammy Barker and Robert Ramsey together to have a good old rant about the whole thing. You can read their bewildered,...
