First Impressions: Furi Is a PS4 Indie You Shouldn't Ignore

Furi Is a PS4 Indie You Shouldn't Ignore

Hell hath no Furi like a prisoner scorned

It's disappointing, but it's become a dirty word, "indie". Take a cursory glance at the PlayStation Blog or even this very website, and you'll find readers ragging on forays that have been developed on slimmer budgets than a Whopper meal. Curation plays a part in that: there's some real tosh on the...

First Impressions: Reflecting on Our Time with Reflections

Reflecting on Our Time with Reflections

The mirror reflected

Have you ever really wanted to decide what colours to paint a house and then actually paint? Have you ever had a very strong desire to take the time to fix the plumbing for your kitchen sink in a digital world? Or maybe you just really wanted to go to a local pond and skip stones? All of these things and more can be your...

I've Never Played... Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Part 4 & 5

Double trouble

So, I somehow managed to forget to share Episode 4 with you lovely bunch. It has been live on YouTube for a while now, but I definitely slacked on my job of letting you all know here, as such you've got yourselves a double dose of myself and our Push Square Podcast co-host, Mr Ben Potter, playing through the infamous Uncharted: D

DLC Review: Building Deathclaw Arenas in Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop on PS4

Building Deathclaw Arenas in Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop on PS4

Are you not entertained?

Unlike Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, Fallout 4's second slice of downloadable content, doesn't feature any quests, stories, or new characters. It's very much an add-on pack in both name and nature, providing you with a load of new settlement crafting options and not much else. However, for its relatively low price tag,...

Jumping through hoops

Following the colossal success of Rocket League, future sports are back in a big way.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 112

Backlog busting

'Tis the week before Dark Souls III, so all round Push Square, there is much anticipation – and a little despair. Seriously, though, there's more variety in this week's WAYP than any previous editions. We have a sneaking suspicion that that won't be the case next time, so make the most of it. Sammy Barker, Editor: I blame Robert...

SMITE PS4 Hints and Tips for Beginner Gods

SMITE up your life

MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas) have had a massive impact on the PC gaming landscape as they collectively rode the growing wave of game streaming to become one of the industry's biggest genres. It's strange, then, that this multiplayer juggernaut has largely bypassed PlayStation consoles and it's only with the recent...

Is It Scary Leaving Nathan Drake Behind in Uncharted 4 on PS4?

Naughty Dog talks a big game

It's been a gruelling three year wait, but Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is on the home straight. Naughty Dog wrapped up production on the hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive a little while back, and we recently caught up with lead designer Ricky Cambier in order to quiz him on the mood in the studio, the biggest...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 111

A mess

It's the weekend already? The Easter break has seriously confused our working week, with Saturday seemingly arriving 24 hours earlier than it should. We're not ones to complain, though, as we'll be packing our premature time off with tons of PlayStation 4 games. Below, you'll find what we're playing – but don't forget to share your plans in...

Soapbox: Why I Don't Think PS4K Is Okay

Why I Don't Think PS4K Is Okay

Sony has 99 problems but 4K ain't one, says Sam Brooke

When rumours for the PlayStation 4K first appeared, I was pretty sure that it wasn't true. "Surely," my younger, unwise mind of a couple of weeks ago said. "Sony wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot by attempting to divide its fanbase." But, alas, here we are, with all signs pointing to a...

Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV Is Well Worth the Free Download on PS4

An interesting glimpse into the game

Announced during the Uncovered: Final Fantsy XV event, Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV is yet more evidence that Square Enix likes to come up with terrible names. It's also a rather interesting glimpse into the inner workings of Final Fantasy XV, and provides a pleasant little adventure to boot. As far as free...

Will You Be Buying Final Fantasy XV?

Let's go on a road trip

Now that Final Fantasy XV finally has a release date and Square Enix has shared its plans for the game, we have to ask: will you be buying it this September?
