Hands On: Outrunning a Giant in Fated: The Silent Oath on PlayStation VR

Outrunning a Giant in Fated: The Silent Oath on PlayStation VR

The end of days

There were a pretty large number of virtual reality games being shown off at PAX East. Some awesome things were being done with the headsets, but one of the games that we were most impressed with was Frima Studios' Fated: The Silent Oath. A narrative-focused VR game, Fated sees you assume the role of a mute man as he tries to...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4, PlayStation Plus Freebies, Alienation

Modern warfare

A somewhat modest week here at Push Square Towers, as rumours and teasers took the place of actual announcements. The big leak centred on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which appears poised to release on the PlayStation 4. As for actual news, the latest slate of PlayStation Plus goodies were announced – while we reviewed Alienation...

Is Max Payne Still on Target on PS4?

Bullet time

Max Payne stealth released on the PlayStation Store as a refreshed PlayStation 2 title for the PlayStation 4 recently, so we figured that we'd take it for a spin to see how it holds up.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 115

Rain haven

The April showers are particularly unpredictable at Push Square Towers right now, which means that we have an excellent excuse not to brave the outdoors – after all, no one likes getting wet if they can help it. Fortunately, we have a solution: stay indoors and play video games until Monday prematurely arrives. Bonza! Sammy Barker,...

Do You Want More Family Friendly Platformers on PS4?

Oodibigah

Grab your Groovitrons because Ratchet & Clank is a critical and commercial hit – just try not to mention the movie while you move your feet to the beat. The game – with its strong consumer reception and compelling price point – topped the UK sales charts this week, significantly outpacing Play

PlayStation VR Musings Post PAX East

It's everywhere

Dreaming up interesting hardware peripherals has been a challenge for decades now. Some, like the Xbox Kinect, are cool but bungled in execution; others, like the Wii remote, are gimmicky but capture an audience anyway. Innovation is not enough when it comes to add-ons – the experience needs to be exceptional as well. And Sony...

Pyre Illuminates the Night Sky with Playable Demo at PAX East

Build that wall

After two massively successful releases, indie studio Supergiant Games has made quite the name for itself in the industry. Both of its titles – Bastion and Transistor – have been well received critically, and are some of the most beautiful games that we've ever seen. So when the dev announced just a few days before PAX East...

Hands On: Is Nioh on PS4 a Cut Above Its Competitors?

Is Nioh on PS4 a Cut Above Its Competitors?

Soul searcher

A bizarre pre-release alpha demo for samurai Souls clone Nioh launched on the PlayStation 4 this week, and given that it's one of the rare releases that's piqued both Sammy and Ramsey's attention, we figured that we'd run a dual impressions article on the upcoming Koei Tecmo exclusive. Find out what we thought below. Sammy Barker,...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 114

Dearly beloved

Work is well and truly over, which means that it's all video games all the time for the next two days. Well, not quite, as this author still has a handful of chores to complete – but we're not going to let that dampen the mood. In honour of the late, great Prince – it's time to party like it's 1999. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've...

3 Believable Perks That Would Make Your PlayStation Plus Sub Better

Plus more

Not everyone's happy with their PlayStation Plus subscription at the moment, with the quality of the Instant Game Collection being the biggest point of contention.

Sony Needs to Set the Record Straight on PS4K Soon

Silent fright

I think, after reading in detail the reams of information that leaked regarding PlayStation 4K yesterday, that Sony is doing right by existing PS4 owners – but it's clear that not everyone agrees. Those of you that know me in person will know that I have a mild obsession with NeoGAF, spending incalculable hours trawling through the...

Hands On: Reliving a Memorable War in Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on PS4

Reliving a Memorable War in Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on PS4

Well in, Welkin

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is a fine example of a game that'll always look bloody lovely because of its art style. When the original Valkyria Chronicles launched on the PlayStation 3 all the way back in 2008, it was a stunner, sporting wistful, superbly crafted watercolour-esque visuals. From start to finish the title was a joy...

Street Fighter V Gets a Lot of Hate, But It Succeeds Superbly as a Tournament Game

Ramsey reckons Capcom's latest is a joy to watch

I stayed up until 07:00AM this morning watching the last eight of a Street Fighter V tournament. When I told editor Sammy Barker about my shenanigans, he looked at me like I was a complete lunatic – but I don't regret it one bit, because Capcom's vision for the brawler has finally clicked with...
