What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 46

Everybody loves good Neighbours

We’re in the eye of the storm. Next week marks the release of the last few big holiday titles, and then it’s back to relative silence until the New Year. As such, this is another condensed issue of WAYP from our staff’s point of view – but we bet that you’ve got lots to talk about in the comments section...

Talking Point: Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Down for the count

If this is next-gen, then we wished that greatness would have waited until it was ready. We were going to pen this article a little later in the month – the release schedule is still stacked with several other blockbuster titles – but with the Assassin’s Creed Unity saga still a sour taste on the industry’s lips, we’ve...

Four of Assassin's Creed Unity's Most Gloriously Ghastly PS4 Glitches

Temp scar

No one deserves to be singled out for their appearance, and Ubisoft clearly believes passionately in that sentiment. Recognising that the Hunchback of Notre Dame has been persecuted for centuries based on his unusual exterior, the French firm has decided that the ugly individual deserves some company – and so these Assassin’s Creed...

How Well Does Assassin's Creed Unity Actually Run on PS4?

Not quite a revolution

We're still working on our full review of Assassin's Creed Unity, but with all of this speculation as to how the game actually looks and runs on the PlayStation 4, we thought that it'd be a good idea to put forward a report on the matter. We're a reasonable way into the sandbox adventure, and by this point, we reckon that...

Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Reviews Plot a Revolution

Paper tigers

Well, it wouldn’t be a new Ubisoft title without a bit of controversy, would it? Assassin’s Creed Unity has ruffled feathers for all of the wrong reasons over the past six months, with pundits complaining about everything from the game’s lack of female characters all the way through to those infamous parity comments. Along the...

Game of the Month: October 2014 - Alien: Isolation

October 2014 - Alien: Isolation

It's behind you

Here at Push Square Towers, we reviewed a mighty 38 titles in October, and, for the most part, they've given us plenty of enjoyment. 7s rained down from the gaming heavens, and there were plenty of 8s to shout about, too. Now, however, we're into the industry's busiest month, with blockbuster after blockbuster strutting onto the...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Grand Theft Auto V, Uncharted 4

Showtime

This week was all about the blockbusters, as we spent most of our time solving a global crisis in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. That wasn’t the only big game absorbing our attention over the past seven days, though, as Rockstar Games also made a series of announcements regarding the PlayStation 4 port of Grand Theft Auto V. Oh, and we...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 45

Hella good

The nights are drawing in, but we’re not letting that dampen our spirits here at Push Square towers. We’re currently right in the thick of the Christmas release season, so that means that, well... The majority of the team is too busy to pen a paragraph for WAYP. You’ll have to do make do with this truncated edition, then. Sammy...

Miss the BioWare Roundtable? Here Are All the New Details on Mass Effect PS4

Sounds massive

The BioWare N7 day roundtable stream is now over, and although we basically sat through half an hour of developers rattling off their favourite Mass Effect moments for the sake of seeing several pieces of brand new concept art, we did actually manage to nab some new info regarding the next title in the series. For starters, new...

Gaming's Greatest Fireworks Display Still Resides Inside the PS2

Sky lights

It’s currently Bonfire Night here in the UK, a bizarre annual event in which wooden figures are burnt at the stake in order acknowledge the capture of Guy Fawkes, a British radical who plotted to dethrone King James I by destroying parliament with dozens of barrels of stashed gunpowder. His plan was eventually exposed after a tip-off...

Say Hello to Two of Sony's Aussie PS4 Indies

They come from the land down under

Sony loves indies. It’s a slogan which, for better or worse, has come to shape the Japanese giant’s business strategy in recent months. These smaller experiences have been used to plug holes in the inevitable first year software drought, while also seeing a mini-renaissance on PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and More

War changes

After a short hiatus, Out This Week has returned to help you plan out your gaming time. This week is significant as it sees the arrival of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 – the latest instalment in Activision’s blockbuster first-person brand. We’re also due the pitter-patter of a fresh...

What Does Dying Light Do to Resurrect the Zombie Apocalypse on PS4?

The freewheelin' mob killing

Dying Light finds itself in an odd position. With its last-gen version recently cancelled, and developer Techland touting a renewed focus on fluidity and polish, the parkour-‘em-up’s future feels slightly unclear. We recently went hands on with the title at PAX Australia, and – after being ushered

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4 Reviews Look to the Future

Cloud Atlas

Compared to the months of pre-release hype that Destiny received, we can’t help but feel that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is somewhat sneaking onto store shelves. The biggest gaming brand on the planet has taken a slight stumble in recent years, with the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts compounding a decline in annual sales...
