Live: Watch EA's Gamescom 2016 Press Conference Right Here

Watch EA's Gamescom 2016 Press Conference Right Here

Battlefield 1! Titanfall 2! Mass Effect Andromeda?

It threatens to be a much quieter Gamescom without Sony taking to the stage, but EA is holding a press conference, and we're sure that it will have a title or two worth showing. Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, and FIFA 17 are all likely to feature heavily during its briefing, with the action getting...

Bound Has Some of the Best Animations on PS4 Yet

Dancin', dancin'

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a majestically animated game, but Polish demoscene dev Plastic's latest may just rival it. Bound's gameplay is based upon performance capture of real dancers, and the studio's done an incredible job of marrying these moves to gameplay – it's way more responsive than you could possibly imagine. We...

Push Rewind: No Man's Sky, PlayStation Meeting 2016, PS4K

No Man's Sky, PlayStation Meeting 2016, PS4K

A busy one

It was an enormously busy week here at Push Square Towers – despite the fact that we only published one measly review. Features led the charge this time, as we covered everything No Man's Sky, and even found time to build some hype for Sony's PlayStation Meeting presser, which will take place on 7th September. Reviews: No Man's...

Join Me on My Journey to the Centre of the Universe

Take off

"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of my all-time favourite things. It's hilarious, it's silly, and it's about travelling through...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 130

Ready, set, go

The athletics is finally underway at Rio 2016, and despite an unoccupied stadium, we're really looking forward to seeing some medals being won on the track. Sticking with the sport, the Premier League season also gets underway this weekend. Not an enormous amount of time for video games, then – but here's what we're playing all the...

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...

Feature: Three Reasons Why Sonic Mania on PS4 Will Be Rad

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...
