Soapbox: Why I Love Shenmue

Why I Love Shenmue

Sammy Barker recalls his history with Yu Suzuki's hit series

I don't remember the day that the snow turned to rain, but I do remember when I first learned about Shenmue. I must have been no more than 11-years-old at the time, and I'd been bought a copy of EDGE magazine. It had one of those customary end-of-year features spotlighting all of the...

Out This Week: God of War III Remastered, Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, Godzilla

God of War III Remastered, Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, Godzilla

Godspeed

It's a surprisingly big week for new releases here on Planet PlayStation, as the industry is rocked from its post-E3 hangover with a series of noteworthy new titles. God of War III Remastered is arguably the big one, as it represents Kratos' first foray onto the PlayStation 4 – but both Godzilla and EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour are...

Push Rewind: The Witcher 3 PS4 Patches, Rocket League, And Not a Whole Lot Else

The Witcher 3 PS4 Patches, Rocket League, And Not a Whole Lot Else

Say what you want

If the industry was ever going to take a week off, it picked the right one. Push Square Towers has been too busy perched in front of the tennis to talk about video games – but given the overall winners, this author kinda wished that he hadn't bothered. In all seriousness, it's been a quiet few days on Planet PlayStation. Still,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 75

New balls, please

The weekend has finally arrived, which means that it's Wimbledon finals time. Of course, if you're not interested in scoffing strawberries while marvelling at Roger Federer's ability to make tennis balls bow to his every whim, then you'll probably be playing some PlayStation games. As such, let's get this latest edition of WAYP...

Guide: What Is The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Exactly?

What Is The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited Exactly?

It's not Skyrim 2, if that's what you're asking

Right, it's time that we attempted to clear up this mess once and for all. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited launched on the PlayStation 4 last month, but despite the fact that the game's been out for a reasonable amount of time, we still get asked the same old questions on a regular basis...

Out This Week: Rocket League, Geometry Wars 3 Vita, Pneuma: Breath of Life

Rocket League, Geometry Wars 3 Vita, Pneuma: Breath of Life

The beautiful game

After a brief hiatus for E3 2015 and various holidays, we're bringing Out This Week back with a vengeance. With the sun currently scorching the UK – seriously, it's been baking here the past few days – you may be dreading the impending summer drought, but things are actually looking quite fruitful here on Planet PlayStation...

I Decided to Show My Family Uncharted 4's Incredible Gameplay Demo

Quality time

You've all seen the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End E3 2015 gameplay demo by now - or at least, I hope that you have. When I was sat here with editor Sammy Barker, watching Sony's press conference live at 3AM, our already tired brains had been battered by the wealth of megatons that the Japanese company had casually paraded out on stage as...

First Impressions: Our First 50 Hours With The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4

Our First 50 Hours With The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4

Taming Tamriel

That's right, we've played The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for just a little over 50 hours now, so we thought that it was about time to get some impressions published. Being a massively multiplayer online game, it's safe to say that there's an absolute ton of things to see and do in ZeniMax Online Studios' huge adventure...

Poll: Which Batman: Arkham Game Is the Best?

Which Batman: Arkham Game Is the Best?

Step from the shadows

That's right, we're going to ask that question - a question that has divided the gaming community ever since Batman: Arkham City launched all the way back in 2011. Which Batman: Arkham game is the best? It's safe to say that Batman: Arkham Asylum exceeded all expectations when it released in 2009, and the aforementioned...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 73

SW19

It's been a much tamer week here at Push Square Towers after the intensity of E3 2015. For starters, Robert Ramsey's taken some well deserved days off, which means that we haven't had to hear about the latest Samurai Warriors every six or so minutes. Moreover, there's been a real dearth of big news following last week's tidal wave. Let's hope...

First Impressions: Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Sure Is Fighting Fit

Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Sure Is Fighting Fit

Alright on the Knight

Holy awkward release date, Batman – you contrary cowl connoisseur. There's probably a metaphor that Warner Bros was trying to convey to the games media when it dated Batman: Arkham Knight just days after E3 2015 – like, y'know how Bruce Wayne has to keep fighting to ensure that Gotham City's safe... Yeah, the public...

Video: Watch Us Round Up PlayStation at E3 2015

Watch Us Round Up PlayStation at E3 2015

That's a wrap

We may have bleary eyes and itchy armpits, but this video editor has lived to see another E3. This one was particularly exciting, so in order to tie a big pretty bow around proceedings, we've produced a nice video wrap up for you if you can't arsed with, y'know, words. Sit back and watch while we run you through all of Sony's big...
