Out This Week: Dragon Quest Heroes, Minecraft: Story Mode, Wasteland 2

Dragon Quest Heroes, Minecraft: Story Mode, Wasteland 2

Slime time

We're slap bang in the nucleus of the holiday rush right now, but this week's software lineup isn't brimming with blockbusters – it seems that all of the slightly more niche releases have settled upon the next few days to deploy. Whether it's the obnoxiously named Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below or the...

First Impressions: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Continues to Grow with a Sequel on PS4

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Continues to Grow with a Sequel on PS4

Green hill zone

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 focuses on expanding the original title, which was already such a great success. For those living under a rock, Garden Warfare is a third-person shooter where the plants and zombies from the popular mobile game go head-to-head in order to defend their homelands from each other. We gave the first...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 88

Time to move on

It's a weekend of change here at Push Square Towers, as your humble host goes through the arduous but exciting process of upgrading from a computer that's been in use since 2006. This PC was not only used to design the very first iteration of this website – the files are still on it – but has watched it rise from hobbyist blog to...

Poll: Which Uncharted Game Would You Crown as Your Fave?

Which Uncharted Game Would You Crown as Your Fave?

Prized plunder

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is out globally today, which means that surround sound systems around the world will be emitting those famous words "oh crap" a not-so insignificant number of times over the coming weeks. Of course, with the PlayStation 4 compilation stirring fond memories, it's perhaps a timely period for us...

Poll: Is the Force Strong with the Star Wars Battlefront Beta?

Is the Force Strong with the Star Wars Battlefront Beta?

Pew pew pew

So, the Star Wars Battlefront beta's been out for about a good few hours now, and we dread to think how many imperials have been cut down by laser fire from across the map. The free download's obviously attracted a lot of attention already, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from DICE's rather authentic tie-in - but what do you...

Guide: Where to Find All 61 Treasures in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on PS4

Where to Find All 61 Treasures in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on PS4

Strange relics

Nathan Drake may also be a comedian and serial killer, but he's a treasure hunter at heart. There are a whopping 61 treasures for you to find in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and to coincide with the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, we figured that we'd share the locations of them all. Without further ado, then,...

Five Things Fallout 4 Needs to Get Right on PS4

Fall in, fall out

Blockbuster releases are strange things. You spend what feels like an eternity waiting for the next big thing, absorbing all of the excitement that you possibly can, and then before you know it, it's already a week after launch day and you've pumped 100 hours into your new favourite game. The hype's dispersed somewhat by this...

First Impressions: Forcing Our Way to the Front Line in Star Wars Battlefront on PS4

Forcing Our Way to the Front Line in Star Wars Battlefront on PS4

Everything is proceeding as foreseen

Fans of sci-fi video games have been waiting for a new Star Wars Battlefront ever since the outstanding previous instalment in the series, Battlefront 2, was released all the way back in 2005. For loyal followers of the franchise this previous title feels like it deployed "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far...

Our Top 5 PS4 Games of EGX 2015

Birmingham's best and brightest

Even though half of our staff members returned home from EGX 2015 carrying inevitable illness, this year's show was an enjoyable one, featuring plenty of unreleased software to sample. We spent four days wrapping our hands around admittedly sweaty controllers, and when all was said and done, we sat down and decided...

Round Up: PS4 Exclusive Dragon Quest Heroes Reviews Beat the Snot Out of Slimes

PS4 Exclusive Dragon Quest Heroes Reviews Beat the Snot Out of Slimes

Goo-ing for gold

Well, the time has finally come: there's once again a Dragon Quest game on a PlayStation home console - and it's actually pretty darn good. Early reviews of the Omega Force developed action role-playing release are now going live around the 'net, and the slime slaying simulator is getting a lot of positive attention. It's also...

Round Up: Transformers Devastation PS4 Reviews Start Rolling Out

Transformers Devastation PS4 Reviews Start Rolling Out

Ultra magnum opus

Activision can be a strange company. The organisation goes out of its way to ensure that the likes of Destiny and Call of Duty are covered correctly, but while it's seemingly happy to invest money into middle-tier titles like Transformers: Devastation and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, it doesn't appear to have any faith in them at...

Rock Band 4 PS4 Reviews Play a Blinder

\m/

Plastic instruments are back, and Rock Band 4 is the first to blink. The first entry in the series since 2010, Harmonix is bringing the band together for one last gig. Boasting backward compatibility with most old kit and downloadable content, this title promises a potential setlist of over 1,500 songs out of the box. But the big question is:...

Just Cause 3 Grapples for Glory on PS4

Scorpio strikes again

The sequel to popular open world action title Just Cause 2, creatively named Just Cause 3, brings Rico Rodriguez – codenamed Scorpio – to an entirely new fictional setting: the Mediterranean archipelago of Medici. The new map is the exact same size as the previous instalment's gigantic world, clocking in at a massive 400...

PlayStation Plus, PS4 Firmware Update 3.00, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

Highs and lows

Weeks don't come much bigger than this in the PlayStation Nation, with headlines hitting with frightening frequency over the past seven days. Despite being busy, though, it's all been a bit disappointing; October's big PlayStation Plus update looks light, PlayStation 4 firmware update v3.00 proved to be a letdown, and Tony Hawk's...

Top 4 PlayStation Games - September 2015

Paper, boy

Nothing hacks this video editor off more than preparing for a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain victory – only for Tearaway: Unfolded to come out of nowhere with its cardboard cuteness and snatch the Game of the Month win. Fortunately, your humble host improvised – stay tuned for footage of Push Square's very own paper-based...

Push Square's September 2015 Reviews

Showtime

September seemed to race by, and not just because we abandoned our posts to play some games at EGX 2015, either. As they say, time flies when you're having fun, and there was certainly some enjoyment to be had with last month's release schedule. Packed with a few heavy AAA hitters and a slew of solid, smaller titles, here at Push Square...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 87

Take your pick

It's surely not the weekend again? The weeks seem to fly by of late – but perhaps that's because we're having so much fun. There have been tons of new releases recently, keeping our team appropriately busy. Here's everything that we're playing right now, but do chip in with your own selections in the comments section below. Robert...

Shadow of the Beast Is Bloody Brilliant on PS4

Stepping out of the shadows

One of the quieter demo stations that we saw this year at EGX was for the reboot of eighties gaming classic, Shadow of the Beast. Now, this wasn't much of a surprise, especially since its announcement a couple of years ago at Gamescom was met with a resounding "huh, never heard of it" from anyone under the age of...
