Push Rewind: Fallout 4, Fallout 4, and More Fallout 4

Fallout 4, Fallout 4, and More Fallout 4

Apologies if you feel that the content mix hasn't been quite right on Push Square this week, but Fallout 4 really has been the biggest game to hit the PlayStation 4 since… Well, Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The point is that we loved the game and knew that a ton of you would be playing it, so we wanted to bring you as much coverage as possible...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 93

Feeling the fallout

A bunch of the Push Square team will be celebrating Nintendo Life's tenth anniversary this weekend, so it's a short and sweet WAYP from us. That's okay, though, because you've got acres of comments space to flesh out this article with your own gaming itinerary. Get to it. Jamie O'Neill, Reviewer: I'm revisiting Super Star Wars...

Talking Point: Should Sony Build an Elite DualShock 4 Controller for PS4?

Should Sony Build an Elite DualShock 4 Controller for PS4?

A more joyful joystick

The announcement of the Xbox One Elite controller at E3 2015 was met with furrowed brows here at Push Square Towers. It wasn't that we thought the controller looked bad – far from it – but we felt that peripherals are already outrageously priced on both new-gen consoles, so who would ever stump up $149.99 for a single...

Fallout 4 PS4 Character Builds That Will Keep You Alive and Kicking

Building a brighter future

When it comes to defining your custom character in Fallout 4, you're given a lot of options. You need to consider the rather large perk chart, your equipment, and even your general style of play. Sometimes, it can all become a little confusing, so we've put together nine relatively basic character builds that are easy to...

Top 4 PlayStation Games - October 2015

Nate a minute

We normally let Ben Potter write the captions for his videos, but seeing as no one's seen him since this clip was submitted, someone else has had to step in. To be honest, what with all of the bombs and gun fire audible in the above watch box, we're starting to get a bit worried. Potter, message us if you're reading this, yeah?

Out This Week: Fallout 4, Superbeat Xonic, Spelunker World

Fallout 4, Superbeat Xonic, Spelunker World

Commonwealth games

There's a gaping Lara Croft shaped hole in the PlayStation 4's lineup this week – but don't worry too much, as Fallout 4 is here to keep you occupied. While we're in the thick of the holiday release season, there's actually not a whole lot launching this time – we can only imagine that publishers wanted to get out of the way...

Fallout 4 PS4 Reviews Are Radioactive

Megaton

We've had Robert Ramsey locked in the Push Square vault for weeks now, and he's emerged with a 9/10 review for Fallout 4 on the PlayStation 4. Of course, while we've got more post-apocalyptic content lined up than you can shake an irradiated stick at, it's always interesting to see what's being said around the web. Here are some choice...

Is Fallout 4 a Broken Mess on PS4?

Judgement day

Let's not beat around the bush: Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim all launched in shameful condition on the PlayStation 3. All three games run on what is essentially the same, creaky old engine, which is one of the main reasons why many of you are understandably sceptical of Fallout 4's technical...

Round Up: Push Square's October 2015 Reviews

Push Square's October 2015 Reviews

Not so spooky

October was one heck of a busy month for us here at Push Square. We reviewed an absolutely massive 44 titles across 31 days – which is surely some sort of record. There were big scores aplenty, as well as some big releases - but it wouldn't have been the year's spookiest month without some real horrors to go along with the good...

Need for Speed Fails to Hit First Gear on PS4

Sick

When you're forced to recycle old subtitles, you know that it's time that your brand got a reboot. EA Games' long running Need for Speed series has been securing podium finishes for almost as long as we can remember, but despite there being a movie in the interim, the publisher resisted the temptation to churn out a 2014 sequel to PlayStation...

Just Cause 3 Blows Us Away on PS4

We can't wait to burn it to the ground

It feels good to welcome back Rico Rodriguez – a regime change specialist extraordinaire with a grapple, an attitude, and a huge arsenal of destructive possibilities which will be unleashed on the PlayStation 4 in December. Just Cause 3 is a game that we've have been anticipating ever since finishing...

Push Square's PGW 2015 Game of the Show - Detroit: Become Human

Quantic dreaming

David Cage divides opinion like no other developer. When the French auteur took to Sony's slick Paris Games Week 2015 stage earlier this week, the Push Square press conference live chat was awash with cheers and jeers. Some feel that the French director – who's helmed titles like Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls – is...
