How Does Pokémon  Maker Game Freak's PS4 Debut Fare?

We take Tembo the Badass Elephant for a ride

Side-scrollers are dime a dozen in this current digital age. The old-school genre may have fallen out of favour following the PSone's introduction of new-fangled polygons, but the vibrant indie development scene has ensured that 2D platformers are fashionable again – even if they tend to rival Early...

PlayStation Plus Freebies, Resident Evil Zero, Ultra Street Fighter IV

All over

Well, that may have been one of the worst weeks ever for personal reasons – but it also wasn't that exciting from a PlayStation perspective either. With the thrill of E3 2015 right around the corner, publishers are currently pretty tight lipped about all of their upcoming projects. Of course, this means that leaks are inevitable. Any...

Build 'em up, knock 'em down

The brilliance of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's character progression system lies in its intricacies.

It's the end of another lively week here at Push Square Towers, which means that it's time for your regular dose of WAYP.

What Freebies Would You Like in June's PlayStation Plus Update?

Take your pick

If all goes to plan, June's big PlayStation Plus update should be announced at some point next week. Indeed, the content will likely roll out on 2nd June in North America and 3rd June in Europe, so we'd expect Sony to outline the offering on this coming Wednesday or Thursday – although it has left things until the last minute in...

Are You Enjoying The Witcher 3 on PS4 as Much as We Are?

Witch will it be

We reckon that reviews are important here at Push Square – we enjoy writing them, and it's even better if they're informative enough to help you to decide whether or not you want to splash your cash on a particular game. However, as with anything, we can't guarantee that you'll enjoy, or indeed hate, a release as much as we...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's Physical Package Puts All Other Games to Shame

Above and beyond

I'm not overly thrilled at the fact that my age is beginning to increase against my will, but I am thankful that I'm old enough to appreciate physical media. It scares me somewhat that the kids growing up today may never know what it means to flick through the lyrics in a record sleeve or sniff the manual inside a brand new game...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Destiny: House of Wolves, Farming Simulator 15

On the scent

If your name's not The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, then you may be asking yourself why you weren't delayed into next week. Seriously, it's hard to see anything breaking through the hype that's currently circling CD Projekt Red's open world escapade like a (white) wolf. To be fair, though, there's something for everyone here, from the...

Do You Need to Play the First Two Games to Understand The Witcher 3 on PS4?

A legacy of blood

A question that we've seen asked around the Internet countless times: do you really need to play The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings in order to understand The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? Since the upcoming open world title is the first entry in the series to venture onto PlayStation platforms, the concern is...

We talk extensively to one of PlayStation's most prolific composers

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 68

Brilliance in brevity

A short but sweet edition of WAYP this week, as the bulk of the team's busy with various review assignments. Even though we're technically in the "lull" before E3, there's still tons of software deploying on the PlayStation 4 – partly due to those all-important indie titles that Sony has signed up. Will the smaller digital...
