Game of the Year: #6 - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PS4, PS3)

#6 - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PS4, PS3)

Tactical espionage excellence

When Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain first hit shelves back in September, it was everywhere – and with good reason. Though the title harbours concerns of meddlesome online content and a lacking narrative, it still delivers as a stellar toybox fit for fans of the series and newcomers alike. The ways in which...

Game of the Year: #7 - Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4)

#7 - Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4)

Knight time

It's an indication that 2015 has been an impressive year for games, when a Rocksteady Studios Batman: Arkham title doesn't break into the Game of the Year Top Five list, and settles for a respectable seventh place from Push Square instead. Even its E3 2015 trailer was overshadowed beneath the cowl of amazing announcements that preceded...

Did You Get Any PlayStation Gifts This Christmas?

Share 'em with us

It's Christmas Eve – actually, it's just gone midnight – and we don't have long to write this article, so you'll forgive us for excreting it out at the very last minute. But, we've written all of our Game of the Year stuff – keep reading the site over the coming week – and it's taken a lot of time. So, sorry this final...

We Wish You a Very Merry Christmas

For the festivities

I write this on a dark and dreary Wednesday evening ten or so days before Christmas. The build-up to the festive period is always stressful here at Push Square: personal business is complemented by frantic holiday writing, as we attempt to get our Game of the Year coverage in order and tie up any loose ends before we take a day...

What Are You Playing This... Christmas?

O come all ye gamers

'Twas the night before Christmas and all round Push Square, the team were playing Rocket League in abhorrent knitwear. Sammy was scoring goal after goal. "Stop," screamed Robert, "Or you'll be getting coal!" So we changed the game – TowerFall the choice. And we all played till Christmas in jovial voice. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

Game of the Year: #9 - Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (PS4)

#9 - Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (PS4)

Shock and Yaughton

The beauty of Everybody's Gone to The Rapture is its quiet. This is a game about an apocalypse, which doesn't feature any explosions. A game about a deadly virus, which doesn't feature any zombies. A game about a community at war, which doesn't feature any guns. Instead, it tasks you with piecing together the story of the...

The Perfect PS4 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit for the Clueless

We take a look at Oyen Digital's 1TB option

Let's cut right to the chase: if you're anything like us, that 500GB hard drive that's sat inside of your PlayStation 4 since launch is becoming a growing hassle. You're probably having to delete older games so that you can install new ones, and every time that there's a hefty patch to download, you get...

Kojima Picks PlayStation, PS4's Report Card, and Sony's 2016

One more time

It's been a quiet week on the site as we prepare our Game of the Year coverage, but one big story did hit the headlines over the past seven days: Hideo Kojima has formed a new studio and is partnering with PlayStation to develop his first post-Konami title. This is the last edition of Push Rewind until 2016, but don't worry, because...

Yes, we're late

No, we will not miss a week. Sorry about the delayed article, y'all – your humble host had some holiday plans today, so we're well aware that this is hours later than it should be. But love is certainly not over, as this author has scaled to the top of the esoteric brick puzzle named life and delivered you your regularly scheduled...

PS4 Report Card - How Has Sony's Format Fared in 2015?

Constructive criticism

It's the end of term, and that means that its report card time. It's been two years since the PlayStation 4 launched, and the heady days of Jack Tretton's big E3 2013 beatdown are now a distant memory. But while Sony can attribute a chunk of its new-gen system's success to those pre-release pounces, has the manufacturer kept...

Deck the fools

Apparently it's already 12th December, which means that many of you are probably just realising that you have Christmas gifts to buy and decorations to assemble. Gulp. There's still time to get all of that sorted, though, so we recommend shirking your responsibilities and sitting pretty with your PlayStation platform of choice...
