Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered's Infinite Warfare Exclusivity Is a Disaster

Joey Thurmond believes Activision can avoid paying a big price

Video game corporations are prone to making asinine decisions across the board. Ubisoft is no stranger to misrepresenting titles like Assassin's Creed Unity, Watch Dogs, and I Am Alive, which respectively ended up with an unforgivable amount of glitches, vastly downgraded visuals, and...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 116

Overwatch and out

A bit of inside baseball: your humble host is horrible at organising WAYP every week. Despite the feature being in its 116th instalment, you could probably count on one hand the number of times this editor has contacted his team on time in order to solicit entries for the article. This time it's finally come to bite this shamed...

Insomniac Games Discusses the Past, Present, and Future of Ratchet & Clank

Cue montage

Insomniac Games' staff has likely been living up to its name more than usual over the past month. With the announcement of two new titles for the Oculus Rift and release of the game and film of Ratchet & Clank, the veteran developer has been burning the midnight oil to say the least. Therefore, it's no wonder that it should take some...

We Talk Stylish PS4 Steath Title Aragami with Developer Lince Works

Shadow touched

A stealth-'em-up with an attractive art style, Aragami was announced last month for PlayStation 4, and is due to launch later this year. Catching our eye with its debut gameplay trailer - which you can watch through here - we reckon that Barcelona based studio Lince Works could well be onto something. It's fortunate, then, that...

Outrunning a Giant in Fated: The Silent Oath on PlayStation VR

The end of days

There were a pretty large number of virtual reality games being shown off at PAX East. Some awesome things were being done with the headsets, but one of the games that we were most impressed with was Frima Studios' Fated: The Silent Oath. A narrative-focused VR game, Fated sees you assume the role of a mute man as he tries to...

A somewhat modest week here at Push Square Towers, as rumours and teasers took the place of actual announcements. The big leak centred on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which appears poised to release on the PlayStation 4.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 115

Rain haven

The April showers are particularly unpredictable at Push Square Towers right now, which means that we have an excellent excuse not to brave the outdoors – after all, no one likes getting wet if they can help it. Fortunately, we have a solution: stay indoors and play video games until Monday prematurely arrives. Bonza! Sammy Barker,...

Grab your Groovitrons because Ratchet & Clank is a critical and commercial hit – just try not to mention the movie while you move your feet to the beat. The game – with its strong consumer reception and compelling price point – topped the UK sales charts this week, significantly outpacing Play

Feature: PlayStation VR Musings Post PAX East

PlayStation VR Musings Post PAX East

It's everywhere

Dreaming up interesting hardware peripherals has been a challenge for decades now. Some, like the Xbox Kinect, are cool but bungled in execution; others, like the Wii remote, are gimmicky but capture an audience anyway. Innovation is not enough when it comes to add-ons – the experience needs to be exceptional as well. And Sony...

Build that wall

After two massively successful releases, indie studio Supergiant Games has made quite the name for itself in the industry. Both of its titles – Bastion and Transistor – have been well received critically, and are some of the most beautiful games that we've ever seen. So when the dev announced just a few days before PAX East...

Is Nioh on PS4 a Cut Above Its Competitors?

Soul searcher

A bizarre pre-release alpha demo for samurai Souls clone Nioh launched on the PlayStation 4 this week, and given that it's one of the rare releases that's piqued both Sammy and Ramsey's attention, we figured that we'd run a dual impressions article on the upcoming Koei Tecmo exclusive. Find out what we thought below. Sammy Barker,...
