Soapbox: No Man's Sky on PS4 Is the Biggest Disappointment of 2016

No Man's Sky on PS4 Is the Biggest Disappointment of 2016

And yes, Sammy Barker's played Street Fighter V

Good grief, I'm like James Bond in Skyfall's highlands scene right now, clumsily securing Push Square Towers from inevitable impending attacks. There's always been a little bit of crazy in this industry, but Hello Games' hotly anticipated space sim has garnered such a staunch fanbase that it's...

Just How Beautiful Is No Man's Sky on PS4?

Very

No Man's Sky doesn't give you much direction and leaves you to find your own fun, so, while taking a break from collecting friggin' carbon, we decided to make this: a short video showing off some of the planets that we've visited in our playthrough thus far. It (hopefully) demonstrates the variety of Hello Games' infinite universe, while also...

Making a Murderer in Fahrenheit on PS4

Indigo prophecy

This author was running a different website when Fahrenheit (or Indigo Prophecy) released in 2005, and it really blew your humble host's mind. It kickstarted the soft spot that we have for French developer Quantic Dream; its games aren't perfect by any stretch, but it genuinely tries to push boundaries that so many others fear...

Watch 45 Minutes of No Man's Sky PS4 Gameplay

Heridium, here we come

We've played a massive chunk of No Man's Sky – and we even recorded our opening exploits in the galaxy for you to enjoy. Embedded above is 45 minutes of PlayStation 4 gameplay taken directly from the opening moments of the game. Spoilers are light, but if you want to go into the experience blind, then approach carefully...

Site News: Where's Your No Man's Sky PS4 Review?

Where's Your No Man's Sky PS4 Review?

Patience, explorers

Hey everyone, it's Sammy from Push Squa—and this isn't a video script, you nitwit. I just wanted to update you with regards to the status of our No Man's Sky review. As many of you know, the game is out tomorrow in North America and a day later in Europe, but we won't have a verdict ready for you until later in the week...

Three Reasons Why Sonic Mania on PS4 Will Be Rad

Sonic Cycle be damned

Let's start by dealing with the talking hedgehog in the room, huh? The lighting in the video you'll find above is… Pretty bad. We'd love to say that we unleashed our inner-Super Sonic and somehow turned our skin a subtle shade of Simpsons yellow, but as amateurs we just completely cocked up the colour grading both at source...

Is PS2 Classic Ape Escape 2 Still Top Banana on PS4?

Do the monkey with us

Ape Escape 2 released on the PlayStation Store for the PS4 this week – and we've been monkeying around with it. The popular PlayStation 2 platformer definitely shows its age in the controls and presentation department, but it runs nicely on Sony's new-gen system, and the upscaled visuals actually hold up surprisingly well...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 129

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 129

The greatest show on Earth

The Olympics are now officially underway, which means it's time to learn about nations that you never knew existed and watch sports that would never get primetime coverage under normal circumstances. You either love it or you hate it, but there's no denying that there's something special about the globe getting together...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... International Track & Field?

Rio hurty hand

We've all been caught crouched in the corner of our bedrooms, illuminated by the glow of sweaty bodies on our televisions, as our wrists work overtime and our faces contort in anticipation of impending pleasure. We are, of course, referring to winning gold in Konami's revered International Track & Field – a PSone sporting...

You Shouldn't Feel Bad for Liking Destiny

Rise of Iron looks to continue the love-hate relationship

With Rise of Iron details flooding the news yesterday, it made me stop and think about Destiny as a whole. We've all been there, I know, but I came to the conclusion that there's nothing wrong with being excited for the upcoming expansion – there's actually nothing wrong with liking...

Hands On: Overwatch's Olympian PS4 Update Scores with Rocket League Mode

Overwatch's Olympian PS4 Update Scores with Rocket League Mode

Blast ball

It was only a matter of time before Rocket League's herculean impact extended to other games, with Overwatch seemingly the first to "borrow" from Psyonix's sporting smash. Nintendo fans will probably expect mention of Blast Ball from Metroid Prime Federation Force, but seeing as that's not technically out for another couple of weeks,...

Does PS4 Dungeon Crawler Brut@l Kick ASCII?

"(◕‿◕)"

Throwback dungeon crawler Brut@l isn't set to launch on the PlayStation 4 until next week, but aware that a certain space sim is right around the corner, Scottish developer Stormcloud Games has allowed us to go live with our coverage a little earlier. Fortunately, the title stacks up nicely – a smart artstyle and some neat systems...

Dive Deep with 10 Minutes of ABZÛ PS4 Gameplay

Under the sea

We're never getting another Aquanaut's Holiday – more's the pity – but the beautiful ABZÛ should sate your deep sea diving appetite for the time being. The first game by Giant Squid – founded by Matt Nava of Journey and Flower fame – is a presentational tour-de-force, and it controls pretty darn nicely, too. There's some...
