Would You Kindly Take Our Survey?

Be a bae

Look, we're know that you're busy trying to finish The Witness, but can you forget about line puzzles for five minutes, please? Our not-so intimidating overlords at Gamer Network have concocted a right stonker of a survey, and kindly asked us to gently nudge it in your general direction. We really, really need your help with this,...

Opinion: Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Platinum problems

Let's get one thing straight: Trophies are the least important thing when it comes to appraising a game. We'd recommend an amazing title even if it had no pots, because the act of actually playing a release is more important than the system-wide meta-game that surrounds it. Having said that, Trophies are an essential part of the...

How to Solve the Puzzles in The Witness

Without spoilers

Are you struggling with a puzzle on The Witness? It's alright! We've been stumped many a time, too, but because we've already been through the pain, we're willing to offer a helping hand. The real beauty of this game is finding the solutions for yourself, of course, so rather than reveal every answer for you, we've instead...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 103

'Tubin'

What is up, guys? It's yer boy, get2sammyb, and todayyy… We've got something really exciting for you guys. To celebrate over 80 comments from you guys on last week's WAYP, guys, we've decided to pool together the Push Square guys in order to milk this feature dry for the 103rd time, guys. Remember to like, share, and subscribe once you're...

First Impressions: The Division Shows Promise on PS4, But There Are Worries

The Division Shows Promise on PS4, But There Are Worries

Our thoughts after five hours with the beta

Every time that we have something good to say about Tom Clancy's The Division, there's a 'but' at the end of the statement. Maybe we're just miserable gits, or perhaps we're just wary of Ubisoft's ability to con us into thinking something's really good when deep down, it's actually pretty unremarkable...

Talking Point: Is PlayStation Right to Switch Focus to the West?

Is PlayStation Right to Switch Focus to the West?

Emigrating overseas

The humble beginnings of PlayStation are well documented: Ken Kutaragi believed that Sony should get into the console business so strongly that he began developing the firm's first format behind his employer's back. The board didn't back him, but CEO Norio Ohga saw the potential – and he sent the famously hot-headed engineer...

Guide: When Does The Division Beta Begin on PS4?

When Does The Division Beta Begin on PS4?

How can you get access? How big is the file?

Ubisoft, you sly dogs. At first we thought that all of the snow in New York City was a freak natural occurrence, but now we've realised that it was just viral marketing for Tom Clancy's The Division, which is set to receive its inaugural public beta this week. Of course, you may be wondering how to get...

Hands On: Does Homefront PS4's Co-Op Represent a Revolution?

Does Homefront PS4's Co-Op Represent a Revolution?

Derelict teamwork

This game has a past that is not one of secrecy but of an incredibly rocky and public road to completion. Homefront: The Revolution has been tossed between developers like an expensive game of hot potato but it's somehow found light at the end of the tunnel with a release window finally locked in. In fact, it's so close that we...

This Man's PS4 Collection Is Bigger Than Yours

Size matters

Hidden inside Valtteri Hyttinen's unassuming Finnish home lives a treasure: a PlayStation 4 collection so large that it spans an entire wall, and is growing by the day. The digital specialist lives and breathes Sony's new-gen box, spending his day building the PlayStation brand's social media presence, while his evenings are dedicated...

Push Rewind: Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Treading water

It's been another relatively dismal week here at Push Square Towers, lifted perhaps only by the bevy of big reviews that we've published. Resident Evil Zero and This War of Mine: The Little Ones both scored well, while World of Tanks was a teensy bit less successful. In terms of features, we ranked the Top 20 PlayStation 4 games to...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 102

Gotta go fast

Despite being the weekend, your humble host has a lot to do today, so consider this edition of WAYP hastily assembled like a ploughman's sandwich without any lettuce or tomato – or pickle, for that matter. What are we even talking about? Dunno, filling space out, innit. That might be enough? Yes, it's enough. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

News: Life Is Strange's Hella Hawt PS4 Retail Release Is Out Now

Life Is Strange's Hella Hawt PS4 Retail Release Is Out Now

Max power

Life Is Strange was one of the surprise releases of 2015: a teen drama aimed with pin-point precision at this author's heart – only for everyone else to fall in love with it and ruin his whole "hipster gamer" façade. The game proved so successful on digital platforms that Square Enix has decided to release a retail version, and...

The Best Games on PS4 - Winter 2016 Edition

Back for more

It's been six months since we controversially categorised the best games on the PlayStation 4, and a lot has happened since then. Not only have a handful of absentees from last year's 20 strong shortlist won a place in our most active organs, but new releases have also caused us to reconsider the cream of the crop. So, in what we...

Interview: We Talk Everything Digital with the Producer of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

We Talk Everything Digital with the Producer of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Fans, the franchise, future games, and even Pokémon

Can you believe that it's almost time for a brand new Digimon game here in the West? Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is launching early next month on PlayStation 4 and Vita, and we've little doubt that long time fans are starting to feel the hype. Digimon titles are a real rarity outside of Japan...

Push Rewind: PS4 Firmware Updates, Our 2016 Predictions, and PS Vita Lives

PS4 Firmware Updates, Our 2016 Predictions, and PS Vita Lives

Slowly does it

After an absolutely action packed start to 2016, things slowed down a little this week. Ubisoft put out some new footage of Tom Clancy's The Division, but other than that, it's been a particularly quiet one, with an uneventful PlayStation 4 firmware update being one of the few highlights. You won't hear us complaining, of course –...

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...
