First Impressions: Breaching the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Beta on PS4

Breaching the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Beta on PS4

Breaking down barriers

Here at Push Square we've been checking out the closed beta for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege on the PlayStation 4 – and boy has this game been kept under a rock since its first announcement at E3 last year. There's been a distinct lack of interest in the title since its reveal, but it finally appears to have found its...

First Impressions: Ratchet & Clank PS4 Is a Pixar Movie Brought to Life

Ratchet & Clank PS4 Is a Pixar Movie Brought to Life

Lookin' nuts

Remember when Sony famously said that the PlayStation 2 would be capable of powering Toy Story-esque visuals in realtime? We've been waiting a long time for it to deliver on that statement. But with Ratchet & Clank on the PlayStation 4, developer Insomniac Games may have finally succeeded, as this is one of the most visually...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 86

In a hurry

Type Sammy, type! It's the eve of EGX 2015, so we're putting together WAYP abnormally early this time. Of course, you won't know that because you'll be reading this increasingly unnecessary pre-amble on Saturday. Here's everything that the team are planning to play this weekend. Alex Stinton, Reviewer: This weekend, I'll be descending...

How Well Does Assassin's Creed Syndicate Run on PS4?

London's not quite burning

After Assassin's Creed Unity launched in shameful condition on the PlayStation 4 last year, there's been much discussion over how 2015's follow up, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, will run on Sony's home console. After the beating that Unity took, you'd assume that Ubisoft would do its best to ensure that Syndicate performs...

First Impressions: Reflecting on Mirror’s Edge Catalyst PS4

Reflecting on Mirror’s Edge Catalyst PS4

Smooth round the edges

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a reimagined story set before the events of the first title and has built upon the free running and combat system of the original to bring a totally fresh and more fluid experience. With upgraded visuals that look stunning on the next generation consoles and are especially sharp on the PlayStation...

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Is PS4 Gold

Greatness from not-so small beginnings

You didn't think that Sony was going to treat its flagship franchise poorly, did you? A lot's been said and written about the PlayStation 4's exclusive lineup this Christmas, but Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is no slouch. The remastered compilation of Naughty Dog's iconic adventuring trilogy looks...

Poll: Has Destiny Won You Back With The Taken King?

Has Destiny Won You Back With The Taken King?

Is the cryptarch calling?

Destiny: The Taken King is out and fans of Bungie's shooter have probably spent their last weekend grinding themselves into dust. If internet reactions are anything to go by, then the game's third and biggest expansion has been met with a reasonably positive reception. Veteran players seem to like the changes, and lapsed...

Round Up: FIFA 16 PS4 Reviews Attack the Last Man

FIFA 16 PS4 Reviews Attack the Last Man

On target

The battle for soccer supremacy is back on, with PES 2016: Pro Evolution Soccer wowing critics earlier in the month. FIFA 16 will, of course, outpace Konami's classic in the sales department, but can it beat it in the reviews, too? The answer, it would appear, is not quite – but this is an AGUERRRO-esque to-the-wire race. We've...

All of the Headlines from TGS 2015

Turning Japanese

Wow, it's been a busy week here at Push Square Towers, with TGS 2015 taking centre stage. Sony's press conference kickstarted the week, and it's been non-stop since then, with several major titles all on display. Highlights have to include the announcements of Bloodborne: The Old Hunters and Gravity Rush 2, but we also got some...

What Does TGS 2015 Tell Us About PS4 in Japan?

Things are looking up

The PlayStation 4's been far from a flop in Japan since its launch last year, but it's failed to kick on in quite the way that we expected it to. The console's sold in fits and starts, with big releases like Dragon Quest Heroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain prompting numbers to increase – only for them to shrink...

Andrew Karklins visits a virtual London

In early September, I was fortunate enough to experience Sony's first endeavour into the virtual reality space with Project Morpheus, now officially known as PlayStation VR. While attending Fan Expo Canada, a celebration of all things pop culture in downtown Toronto, the Japanese giant showcased many titles...

From Tokyo with love

And breathe again. Push Square Towers has been a hive of activity this week, with TGS 2015 in full swing. But while we've been enjoying bringing you all of the big news from Tokyo, we are looking forward to a breather this weekend – and a video game or two. As has become a tradition in these parts, here's what we're playing...

Interview: Bandai Namco on Bringing Its Japanese Properties West

Bandai Namco on Bringing Its Japanese Properties West

Journey to the West

It's no secret that Bandai Namco has been on a localisation spree since the PlayStation 4 launched almost two years ago. It's been busy pumping out translated titles right, left, and centre for months, so we thought that it'd be interesting to get a little more insight into the publisher's strategy. If you cast your mind back...

Destiny: The Taken King PS4 Marks a Clear Improvement

Taking us back

Year two of Destiny is well and truly under way with the release of The Taken King – the shooter's largest piece of downloadable content to date. We still struggle to call The Dark Below and House of Wolves 'expansions', but there's no denying that this newest add-on fits the bill. You'd expect this, of course, from an expensive...

What Did Sony Announce for PS4, PS3, Vita During Its Pre-TGS Presser?

All of the news

Two press conferences down, two home runs. Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show media briefing was never going to better its fantastical E3 2015 offering, but with decent pacing and a lot of content, it was another strong showing from the Japanese giant. Sure, the presser lacked a knock-out finish – the ten or so minutes spent talking...

What PS4, PS3, and Vita Reveals Should You Expect During Sony's Pre-TGS Presser?

Predicting PlayStation's big media briefing in Japan

Hooray! After a pretty darn dismal Gamescom 2015 last month, PlayStation press conference season begins in earnest this week. Sony's big pre-Tokyo Game Show media briefing is the first of three events before Christmas, with Paris Games Week and PlayStation Experience both set to follow later in...

What Time Does Destiny: The Taken King Go Live on PS4 and PS3?

Patience and time

There's been a lot of confusion over when Destiny's latest expansion, The Taken King, goes live. Being an online-only release, it's no surprise that Bungie is working to make sure that everything clicks without issue, and with that in mind, it'll be launching the add-on at a specified worldwide time. In other words, don't expect...

Nailed it like Neymar

Konami may not make many games anymore, but it's pumping out some real hits this holiday. Hot on the heels of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's critical success, the publisher has deployed another high scorer in the form of PES 2016: Pro Evolution Soccer. Like an out of form striker, this series really struggled to hit...
