Kickstarter Monthly Round Up - Issue One

Take my money

Crowdfunding website Kickstarter is almost certainly the only location where your laundry simulation game will make you an overnight millionaire. However, with the money lending destination’s games section looking a lot like an ant’s nest of console, computer, and mobile ventures, it can be difficult to discover new projects...

So wrong but so right

Did you like hurting other people? If so, then you were no doubt very happy when a new Hotline Miami game was revealed to be in the works.

Raiden vs. Sephiroth

Round 12

Greetings loyal Push Square readers, and welcome to yet another Who Would Win Wednesdays. In a rather brutal twist of fate, this bumbling associate editor completely forgot about this week's contest, but luckily, we've had a brawl waiting in the wings for just such an occasion – and what a battle it is. Of course, we can't forget about...

Skylanders: Trap Team Announced, Demoed on PS4

Caught out

If there’s one thing that we love more than video games, it’s video games with dozens of physical toys attached to them. Family Gamer TV recently attended the Skylanders: Trap Team launch event in London, and caught up with Jeff Poffenbarger, who’s the executive producer on the game. He outlined the new Trapping features found in...

Talking Point: What Are Your Favourite PlayStation Easter Eggs?

What Are Your Favourite PlayStation Easter Eggs?

Sunny side up

We all know that Easter eggs are at their absolute best when they’re big, brown, and made out of chocolate. However, just because you can’t beat a sugary oval filled with Cadbury’s finest fondant, doesn’t mean that the tasty treats stashed inside video games aren’t also entertaining. We took a look back at 12 of the very...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Easter Edition 2

Cracking good time

The long Easter weekend is upon us, which means that this editor will be spending his lie-ins hoping that Jessica Rabbit hops by with a chocolate heart. Curious fantasies aside, it’s been over a year now since we started the ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’ series, meaning that this is the second Easter Edition that...

Talking Point: How Frequently Do You Want PS4 Firmware Updates?

How Frequently Do You Want PS4 Firmware Updates?

Time for a change

Firmware updates on the PlayStation 3 were serious business. Take a gander at some of our older articles on the subject and you’ll spot more than a handful of prickly jabs pointed at people that complained about the constant need to update the console. In hindsight, it was a problem, with the system seemingly taking an age to...

Alduin vs. Bahamut

Round 11

We're now so far into Who Wins Wednesdays that we've had to start using numbers when it comes to typing out the tagline. We've had ten features leading up to today's duel, with the last battle ending up as a win for everyone's favourite alien, Garrus Vakarian. In an attempt to keep things feeling fresh, we're going to move away from gun...

Push Rewind: Management, Morpheus, and Minecraft

Management, Morpheus, and Minecraft

The calm before the storm

There’s no doubt that we are now deep in the pre-E3 lull. Sony may have hastily announced The Last of Us Remastered this week, but we get the distinct impression that it didn’t want to. As such, we suspect that any Earth shattering stories that hit the headlines over the coming months will be leaks from the Los...

Talking Point: Is The Last of Us Remastered Enough to Carry PS4 Until Christmas?

Is The Last of Us Remastered Enough to Carry PS4 Until Christmas?

Something to fight for

Sony clearly intended to make a bigger splash with The Last of Us Remastered before it leaked. The platform holder admirably attempted to shrug aside the mistimed comments made by Turkish executive Sercan Sulun late last month, but it couldn’t gloss over the big gaping banner advertisement that it acc

How Renegade Kid Embraces PlayStation Survival Horror Classics in Cult County

It's a storm out there

Beating Up Siblings in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

Keep it in the family

For the uninitiated, the constant wave of previously Japanese-only titles getting a Western release can be extremely daunting. Despite the recent successes of Persona 4 Golden, Catherine, and even the likes of Demon’s Souls, there still exists a barrier that very few people are willing to cross in the name of newer, more...

Sliding Down the Slipway with Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day

Ranko's Creed

In case you're unaware, Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is not technically a game in the normal sense of the word. Instead, it's a rather big bundle of delight, featuring four short anime movies from acclaimed directors who brought you cult classics such as the 1988 blockbuster Akira, and a rather quirky gameplay segment...

Ghost crimebuster

A plunge from a fourth floor window to the street below isn’t quite enough to kill hard as nails detective Ronan O’Connor. The seven bullets that follow are.

12 PS3 Hits We'd Like to See Remastered for PS4

Lick of paint

With content droughts always a concern shortly after the release of a brand new system, we predicted earlier in the year that 2014 would play host to a slew of PlayStation 3 re-releases. While this hasn’t quite played out just yet – with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition being the most noti

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition PS3 Trophy Guide & Road Map

Going deeper underground
