First Impressions: Taking One on the Chin in Mortal Kombat X on PS4

Taking One on the Chin in Mortal Kombat X on PS4

You make me larrrf, Kitana

Mortal Kombat X is genuinely funny. You can bombard us with Johnny Cage-esque green orbs in the comments all you like, but there's no way that developer NetherRealm built this game with a straight face. And that's a good thing. The amount of tomfoolery on display at times is outrageous – and it's bettered only by the...

Watch As We Recap March 2015's Best PS4, PS3, and Vita Games

The good blood

And now that Bloodborne's out of the way, it's back to your regularly scheduled slice of Game of the Month video goodness – in which your humble host talks Bloodborne. We let the good blood guide us this time out, as we get to the bottom of the PlayStation 4 exclusive's plot – and compare it to election debates. Both make about as...

DLC Review: Is Evolve's DLC a Colossal Scam?

Is Evolve's DLC a Colossal Scam?

Monstrous pricing

Just over a month since we donned the monster hunting boots of Evolve, we're now greeted with the anticipated Hunting Season Pass and, for those of you who pre-ordered, the Monster Expansion pack. The core release was received in a rather mixed fashion by most – gleaning a solid if unspectacular 6/10 in our review – but with...

Game of the Month: March 2015

March 2015

Yet more zombies, throwbacks, and far too much blood

Before you say it: yes, we know that this edition of Game of the Month is a bit late, but we've had video editor Ben Potter locked in the basement for about three weeks as we forced him to review Bloodborne. He emerged only yesterday, clutching his handwritten essay, and ranting about his...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 63

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 63

Lazy time

Another week, another edition of WAYP, another attempt at an "original" introduction. What Are You Playing This Weekend may be a popular feature here on Push Square, but by goodness, you try coming up with a new pre-amble each and every week. Perhaps we should hold some kind of competition for this – this author's fresh out of ideas...

Soapbox: Sony Really Needs to Give Us More PlayStation Plus Cloud Space

Sony Really Needs to Give Us More PlayStation Plus Cloud Space

Sammy Barker's sick of running out of space

There's one thing that you really need to know about me: I worry – a lot. For as long as I can remember, I've had irrational reactions to almost everything in my life: did I just put my modest size eight shoes in my mouth? Did I just get that exam question wrong – even though I've triple checked it...

Soapbox: We Need More New Game Plus

We Need More New Game Plus

Robert Ramsey wants to start over, but not from scratch

Just a couple of days ago, I started a new playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition, in preparation for the first slice of DLC that's hitting PlayStation consoles in May. Having already completed the game once, I was looking forward to slogging through the adventure again while making use of...

First Impressions: PlayStation Home Has Already Arrived on PS4, and It's Called Atom Universe

PlayStation Home Has Already Arrived on PS4, and It's Called Atom Universe

Home alone

Sometimes the best surprises in life are the ones that you don't expect – but we'd give pause before describing Atom Universe as a pleasant shock. Suspiciously dropped onto the European PlayStation Store today with virtually zero fanfare, this is the next-gen social hovel that you've been yearning for ever since PlayStation Home...

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

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...
