Push Rewind: Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Treading water

It's been another relatively dismal week here at Push Square Towers, lifted perhaps only by the bevy of big reviews that we've published. Resident Evil Zero and This War of Mine: The Little Ones both scored well, while World of Tanks was a teensy bit less successful. In terms of features, we ranked the Top 20 PlayStation 4 games to...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 102

Gotta go fast

Despite being the weekend, your humble host has a lot to do today, so consider this edition of WAYP hastily assembled like a ploughman's sandwich without any lettuce or tomato – or pickle, for that matter. What are we even talking about? Dunno, filling space out, innit. That might be enough? Yes, it's enough. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

News: Life Is Strange's Hella Hawt PS4 Retail Release Is Out Now

Life Is Strange's Hella Hawt PS4 Retail Release Is Out Now

Max power

Life Is Strange was one of the surprise releases of 2015: a teen drama aimed with pin-point precision at this author's heart – only for everyone else to fall in love with it and ruin his whole "hipster gamer" façade. The game proved so successful on digital platforms that Square Enix has decided to release a retail version, and...

The Best Games on PS4 - Winter 2016 Edition

Back for more

It's been six months since we controversially categorised the best games on the PlayStation 4, and a lot has happened since then. Not only have a handful of absentees from last year's 20 strong shortlist won a place in our most active organs, but new releases have also caused us to reconsider the cream of the crop. So, in what we...

We Talk Everything Digital with the Producer of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Fans, the franchise, future games, and even Pokémon

Can you believe that it's almost time for a brand new Digimon game here in the West? Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is launching early next month on PlayStation 4 and Vita, and we've little doubt that long time fans are starting to feel the hype. Digimon titles are a real rarity outside of Japan...

Push Rewind: PS4 Firmware Updates, Our 2016 Predictions, and PS Vita Lives

PS4 Firmware Updates, Our 2016 Predictions, and PS Vita Lives

Slowly does it

After an absolutely action packed start to 2016, things slowed down a little this week. Ubisoft put out some new footage of Tom Clancy's The Division, but other than that, it's been a particularly quiet one, with an uneventful PlayStation 4 firmware update being one of the few highlights. You won't hear us complaining, of course –...

First Impressions: Is Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Princely on PS4?

Is Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Princely on PS4?

King me

We've had our eye on Arslan: The Warriors of Legend for quite some time, and that's mostly because Omega Force – the developer behind almost every Warriors-esque game under the sun – has a solid track record when it comes to merging already existing properties with its trademark hack and slash action. The likes of Dynasty Warriors:...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 101

It's cold

Winter has arrived. No, really – the greenery of the UK has turned an icy shade of white, and we've reverted to performing star jumps in the Push Square office just to stay warm. It's been a bit of a quiet week here in the PlayStation Nation, but a deluge of new releases are about to deploy, so we may as well make the most of the down...

25 Games That Prove PlayStation Vita Ain't Dead Yet

Alive and kickin'

Stop! Pack up that PlayStation Vita shaped coffin and plop your posterior on a pew: Sony's smallest system may not possess the unstoppable popularity of the PlayStation 4, but if going mainstream was really considered cool, then we'd all be rocking Bieber barnets and humming the chorus to Love Yourself. No one wants to do that,...

What PS4 Screenshots Have You Been Sharing? - Issue 6

Games as art, kind of

Welcome to the first Push Share of 2016, a bi-weekly feature in which we round up our staff writers and prod them until they send us their best PlayStation 4 pictures. This week's offerings have produced a decent gallery that showcases a healthy selection of titles, so, as always, feel free to peruse our artistic endeavours and...

Sony Marks PlayStation Plus' Five Year Anniversary with Stats Plaques for Lifers

Life sentence

If you think that PlayStation Plus is bad now, this author can remember when the monthly update included a retro Mega Drive title, a PlayStation Mini, and a handful of PlayStation 3 themes. The service has changed exponentially since then, and as a reward for lifetime members sticking with the subscription model for all five years of...

Why I Don't Hate The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Anymore

Bitchin' witchin'

I stopped playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on 6th June, swore off it for life, told colleague Robert Ramsey that he'd Made_A_Huge_Mistake.gif awarding it a 10/10, and spent the following six months ridiculing everyone for liking a game in which following a floating foetus is widely regarded as its best bit. I was wrong. Y'see,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 100

Triple digits

We've only gone and reached our 100th edition of WAYP – an occasion that would be worth marking if this author hadn't got in a muddle and assumed that this week's instalment was actually Issue 99. Whoops. Oh well, at least we've got a bumper article this week for you, with virtually every Push Square team member turning out in force...

10 Under the Radar PS4 Games to Look Out for in 2016

Sticking up for the little guy

Last year, we previewed 25 games that would make 2016 an excellent one for the PlayStation 4, including huge blockbusters like Final Fantasy XV, Mass Effect Andromeda, and The Last Guardian as well as a couple of smaller titles such as Firewatch and The Witness. While it gives a great picture of ju

Oculus Rift's $599 Price Is Positive News for PlayStation VR

Five hundred and ninety-nine US dollars

We suspect that there may be a few smiles at Sony HQ today as the game of chicken regarding virtual reality pricing has finally come to an abrupt end. It's felt for a while like each of the major VR manufacturers have been waiting for each other to make the first move, and Oculus has faced the unenviable...

20 Japanese PS4 Games to Watch in 2016

Beasts from the East

At this point in the PlayStation 3's life, many disgruntled gamers would have told you that Japan's software outlook was bleak. Sony's homeland was struggling to adapt to the new high definition era, with developers seemingly unable to get a firm grip on working with fresh hardware. It was a tough time to be a fan of Japanese...

Hype merchants

2016 is shaping up to be a major year for the PlayStation 4, and while we can't wait to get our grubby mitts on many of the system's upcoming titles, we thought that we'd take this opportunity to think about potential games that haven't been officially announced yet. As such, we've come up with a list of 12 titles that we'd love to...

Fallout 4's Biggest Improvement Is Stealth

Michael acknowledges the Commonwealth’s underappreciated undercover

Note: There are minor Fallout 4 story spoilers in this article. Fallout 4 does a lot of things wrong. The dialogue system is a mess, the perk tree feels dumbed down, and the lack of choices throughout the game is disheartening. You've probably heard those complaints a thousand...
