Should You Buy Disney Infinity 2.0 for the PS4?

Marvel-ous?

If you’re a regular reader of this site, Disney Infinity 2.0 probably isn’t placed anywhere near to the top of your PlayStation 4 wishlist. However, that doesn’t mean that the release isn’t worth talking about – especially with Marvel characters at the forefront of the package. As such, we’ve teamed up with our friends at...

Traipsing Through the Desert Ashes with Luc Bernard

The amiable Reaper

Luc Bernard may still be short of 30 years in age, but he’s already something of a veteran to the video game business. Perhaps best known by PlayStation fans for micro-download Mecho Wars, the British designer has also courted controversy at times, with his Holocaust-based Imagination Is the Only Escape bringing buckets of...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 38

A date with Destiny

You’re witnessing Push Square history here. For the first time ever, every single staff writer but one will be playing the same game – way to send this editor’s obsessive compulsive disorder into disarray, Jamie. And what is that game, we hear you ask? Here’s a clue: it’s got really bored talking cubes in it. Sammy...

Round Up: Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon

Destiny PS4 Reviews Shoot for the Moon

Your Venus

The industry hasn’t been quite as eager to rush out Destiny reviews as quickly as we expected, which is good to see. That said, with the campaign purportedly taking about 10 hours to complete – leaving ample time to experience the Crucible and a few Strikes – critiques are beginning to appear for Bungie’s next big thing. We’ll...

No Games November - PS4's Lineup Is Starting to Look Silly

Are you insane?

No new system launch would be complete without barbed comments about the quality of the box’s lineup. It’s something that both the PlayStation 3 and Vita have gone through, as well as rival formats such as the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. We’ve always felt that the PlayStation 4 has been unfairly treated in this instance, as...

Destiny's PS4 Launch Proves PSN Isn't Tied Together with String

Sony's servers survive

And breathe again. By penning this article we’re all too aware that we’re foreshadowing the kind of outage that would rival 2011’s widely publicised hack attack, but at the time of writing we can say with confidence that the PlayStation Network is fine. For websites such as this – the kind that break traffic records...

What's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Frontline of the Future Like on PS4?

Time to respawn

The Call of Duty series is perhaps one of the most popular yet widely criticised franchises in the modern era of gaming. Fans of the brand adore the game to its core, playing every iteration for countless hours on a quest to reach the maximum prestige; others feel quite opposed to the series and the impact that it has made on the...

Star power

If there’s one area where Destiny’s definitely not lacking, it’s in the budget department. You can literally feel the dollar bills bristling against your exposed skin when you sit through the first-person shooter’s opening cinematic; you can sense the dabbed brows and nervous boardroom exchanges as executives wrangle over the...

Perusing PS4's Presence at Canada's Biggest Gaming Convention

Andrew Karklins reckons Sony's upcoming lineup had a strong showing

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend Fan Expo Canada 2014, a genre spanning convention filled with lines, crowds, and more lines. As the third largest convention in North America – behind San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con respectively – the event plays host...

It's coming from the moon

Do you hear that in the distance? We're not exactly sure what it is, but it's probably either the sound of millions rejoicing as Destiny finally enters the Earth's atmosphere, or the sound of the PlayStation Network crumbling like the soggiest biscuit that you can possibly imagine. Either way, next week's going to be a big...

Game of the Month: August 2014 - Metro Redux

August 2014 - Metro Redux

Tunnel of love

It's Game of the Month time once again here at Push Square, and what a busy month for games it was in August. We reviewed 27 titles in total, but PlayStation 4 port naysayers probably won't be happy with the winner of our prestigious award. Back in July, we crowned The Last of Us Remastered as the best release of the Summer month,...

Next-gen blocking

Our good friends over at Family Gamer TV have been kind enough to send over their videos of Minecraft running on the PlayStation 4 and Vita. The game finally released yesterday on Sony's newest console. If you've been wondering about how Mojang's mega popular title performs, take a look at the seven minute video that we've...

Build it higher

Minecraft may be one of the biggest video game properties of the last decade, but it certainly took its time in coming to PlayStation platforms. Today marks its release on the PlayStation 4, and with its arrival, questions have begun popping up all over the web as Sony-only gamers search for answers regarding the blocky adventure...

What Did You Think of Sony's Pre-Tokyo Game Show Conference?

Rate all those lovely games

Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference has come and gone, and although we hauled ourselves out of bed rather early in the morning, we're finding it hard to say that it wasn't worth it. After today's showing, we're becoming convinced that Sony has finally nailed the pacing of its pressers. The games just kept coming,...
