What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Everybody's Tennis?

Absolutely ace

Contrary to what some will tell you, the PlayStation Portable had some bloody good games, and among the best of these was and still is Everybody's Tennis – or, as it's known in North America, Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip. Developed by Japanese studio Clap Hanz, it's a supremely polished, accessible, and downright addictive tennis...

Eight of the Best PS4 Easter Eggs So Far

Cracked open

It's officially Easter Sunday, which means that your day will no doubt be dominated by chocolate, rabbits, and, er, chocolate rabbits. Take a break from that half-eaten egg that's currently sliding its way down your greedy gullet, though, and let us whisk you away to the world of content clichés, as we round up some of PlayStation's...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Easter Edition 3

Un oeuf of the Easter puns

We'll be resisting temptation here at Push Square Towers, keeping an eye on our waistlines as the Mini Eggs flow freely elsewhere in the office. While we may be attempting to avoid indulging our sweet tooth, however, we will be bowing to our other main guilty pleasure – games. If you're not quite sure what to play this...

Talking Point: What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

The one and only

Addiction is a strong word, but that's how many would describe their need to play one single game time and time again. A title that you've never really been able to put down, something that your mind always wanders back to, whether it's because you're bored and unsure of what to play, or because you simply enjoy it so much. It may...

There Was No Place Quite Like PlayStation Home

Memories of Sony's madcap virtual world

There's a big 'To Let' sign in the Home Plaza today, and the remnants of makeshift toilet paper streamers scattered about its tufts of unkempt grass. Hours earlier, avatars congregated to wish the virtual world farewell, with one last cabbage patch dance under silky blue skies. Now, the weather is moody, and...

Axiom Verge’s Tom Happ tells us about PlayStation's next best indie

Tom Happ has been working on Axiom Verge for five years, and is now eagerly awaiting its launch later this week. In the age of social media, it's become increasingly easy, if incredibly time consuming, for indie developers to market their games – but the kind of raw hype that...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 62

Happy hunting

We suspect that this week's WAYP is going to be dominated by one title: Bloodborne. Most of us here at Push Square Towers are getting down and dirty with From Software's latest, and we suspect that things will be much the same for many of you. A word of advice for everyone: DualShock 4's are really expensive, so don't throw one at the...

Poll: What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?

What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?

Iconic pop

Those darned PlayStation Network outage articles have clearly left Sony scarred, as it's done away with the service's old logo. For the past ten or so years, it's employed the purple sphere symbol, but today's batch of firmware updates rendered the icon obsolete. You'll now find a much more contemporary circle on your PlayStation 4,...

Mastering Bloodborne's Brutal Basics on PS4

A beginner's guide to Sony's biggest PS4 exclusive so far

There's a good chance that you've been looking at this week's Bloodborne coverage through worried eyes. From Software's latest foray is a critical darling, there's no doubt about that – but despite it being praised as the first must-own PlayStation 4 exclusive, the developer has a...

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection PS4 Reviews Look in the Mirror

Jack's back

They should make a movie: Not Another PlayStation 4 Remaster. Seriously, though, while Borderlands: The Handsome Collection may not include the first game in the series, it's looking like a pretty comprehensive package. Including both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the real thing that should sell this set is the fact...

First Impressions: Final Fantasy XV Has Massive Potential

Final Fantasy XV Has Massive Potential

Don't screw this up

To be totally honest, we're still having trouble coming to terms with the fact that we've actually played something related to Final Fantasy XV. If you've been keeping up with the game's development, all the way back since it was announced almost ten years ago, then we imagine that you'll feel the same. Episode Duscae, the...

Hideo Kojima Kerfuffle, God of War III Remastered, and Battlefield Hardline

Down like a domino

This week really sparked into life about midway through. Just as our servers went offline, rumours started to circulate that Hideo Kojima had been ousted out of Konami, and it's been non-stop since then. God of War III Remastered was announced on Friday, while we took our time on retail servers to review Battlefield Hardline...

Don't want this Saturday to end

2PM getting outta my bed // Tryin' to get Friday outta my head // It's all so hazy, got a little bit crazy, y'know I'd do it all again // Call everyone you know (oh my god, come over) // Turn up the radio // 'Cos this is our song, we can do no wrong, are you ready are you ready to go?

Has It Just Been a Bad Week for Games, Or Is This Simply a Sign of the Times?

Sammy Barker reckons that the industry’s in one big scrap

You've got to take the rough with the smooth – but these past few days have been more rugged than Vin Diesel's right-angled jaw. It's not been a vintage week for the games industry, with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima seemingly being pushed out of Konami, first-party developer...
