Which Destiny Ghost Voice Is the Best?

Dinklage or North?

Any fan of Destiny will know that the game's most recent 2.0 update replaced the original voice of your robotic companion - your Ghost - with an all-new actor.

Bossing it

I've finally had a chance to really sink my teeth into Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain this weekend, and I've already came to one pretty dramatic conclusion: it has the best open mission design that I've experienced in a game.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 83

Ahead of schedule

The sun has set on another week, but there's one major difference this time: we've actually got WAYP ready relatively early this time.

Where to Find All of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Music Cassette Tapes

Locations that will make your Walkman sing

Let it be known that there is only one universal truth on this earth, and that is that cassette tapes suck. Unfortunately for Big Boss he hasn't got much of a choice, as CDs and iPods don't exist in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. While collectibles can be a pile of crud in other games, the tapes...

Sneaking to Success in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PS4

Hints and tips for Big Boss beginners

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is an extraordinary game.

The million dollar question

Video game. Noun. A game played by electronically manipulating images produced by a computer program on a monitor or other display. Video games are more diverse than they've ever been.

Racing towards the storm

August was a busy month for everyone here at Push Square, as we pumped out a whopping 39 reviews - which is surely some sort of record. The sheer amount of new releases perhaps came as no surprise, though, seeing as we're now hurtling towards the holiday rush at speeds that we're not entirely comfortable with. Future fears...

Dumb teenagers, space battles, pirates, and raptures

Time certainly flies, as evidenced by the fact that it's somehow September. Yeah, we don't understand it either, but we suppose that we have to go ahead and announce August's Game of the Month anyway. Leading steadily into the holiday rush that's about to hit Push Square Towers like a freight...

Mad Max PS4 Reviews Hit the Highway

Wasteland or waste of space?

Mad Max has been in development so long that God of War II director Cory Barlog joined developer Avalanche Studios after the completion of the aforementioned PlayStation 2 sequel to work on it. He's since held various other roles in the industry, and not too long ago returned to Sony Santa Monica to work on some kind...

Is Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain on PS4 the Best Entry Yet?

Tactical espionage excellence

It's night in Afghanistan, as the soldier known as Big Boss surveys a Russian outpost from afar. Soldiers, searchlights, and machine gun emplacements pepper the settlement, making his mission to rescue a prisoner held there even more difficult. The question is: what approach should the legendary soldier take? Should...

Summer appears to be coming to a close, but in celebration of National Burger Day recently, we hope that there's one last BBQ on the agenda for you all. We can't think of a better way to spend the weekend than with a DualShock 4 in one hand and a hot dog in the other – who cares whether it's cloudy or not? Sammy Barker, Editor: For...

Bashing Our Brainnns Against PS4's Zombie Vikings

Thor you should know a little more about this title

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Embraces the Past As It Focuses on the Future

Lean, mean, cybernetic machine

With Call of Duty being the most successful multiplayer shooter franchise in video game history, you would think that betas would've been the norm by now. Instead, each instalment has had infamous issues. Annoying perks such as Juggernaut in Modern Warfare, overpowered weapons like the FAMAS and AK74u in Black Ops,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 81

Talk it out

It's just dawned on everyone at Push Square Towers that we've somehow produced 81 issues of WAYP. For starters, it's amazing that we haven't missed an edition yet – but even more incredible is that this remains one of the more popular features on the site. Who'd have thought that something so simple would be so successful? Sammy...

Eyes-On with PS4's Virtual Reality Headset Project Morpheus

An early look at exclusives London Heist and RIGS

We've known about Project Morpheus – the PlayStation 4's proprietary virtual reality headset – for what feels like an eternity now, so we're definitely reaching that point where it's time for Sony to stop talking about the possibilities for the peripheral, and start proving why it's so...
