Review: Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom (PS4)

Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom (PS4)

Maybe necks time

While it's a common story, Attack on Titan managed to pull this particular scribe into the anime world a couple years ago. How could it not? It has a striking art style with bold lining and subdued colour, a European setting with an intricate culture and inventions, and an irresistible world that draws you in with its mysteries and...

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X (PS4)

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X (PS4)

It's got the X-Factor

One of the songs in the brand new rhythm game, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X, is called Holy Lance Explosion Boy, and it's about an unsettlingly young boy accidentally getting someone pregnant, featuring lines like: "This 0.02mm barrier is seriously getting annoying." If the thought of a kawaii, virtual boy's condom splitting...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 132

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 132

August's almost over

The weekends do come around quick, but given that this is inexplicably a three-day holiday in the UK, you won't hear us complaining. In fact, between the football and the final barbecues of the summer, we'll be squeezing in plenty of gaming. Here's what we're playing. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've been having fun hopping between...

Video: You Really, Really Should Play Inside on PS4

You Really, Really Should Play Inside on PS4

Don't be on the outside

Whatever you think of our review policy here at Push Square Towers – and whether we should invest our biscuit budget into an office steering wheel – there's one thing that we can all agree: 10/10 review scores are rare. In fact, while some sites may use the upper-end of their scale liberally, we like to be a bit more...

Review: AdVenture Capitalist (PS4)

AdVenture Capitalist (PS4)

Pass the buck

Oh the sweet, sweet irony, Sammy. You dump on No Man's Sky for being duller than a charity shop's clothing rack, and now you're going to try and act like AdVenture Capitalist is worth the free download from the PlayStation Store. Biased! Bullsh*t! Never visiting this website again! Bet you didn't even play it with a steering wheel, did...

Review: Valley (PS4)

Valley (PS4)

Valleys of the 40s

Every so often, a year will inexplicably become themed around a certain weapon or piece of equipment. 2012 was the year of the bow and arrow, and it appears that 2016 will become synonymous with the grappling hook. Nathan Drake took one into his final adventure in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and upcoming games such as Titanfall 2,...

Review: Prominence Poker (PS4)

Prominence Poker (PS4)

Ante-hero

There was a point ten years ago when it felt like the popularity of poker had reached fever pitch. You couldn't turn on late night television without it appearing on more than one channel, and there always seemed to be some bloke down the pub who swore he'd made a serious chunk of change online. This rise in gambling websites left poker...

Review: Grow Up (PS4)

Grow Up (PS4)

Just playing the game, having a BUD

It was perhaps a little surprising to see a sequel to last year's botanical platforming adventure Grow Home, especially one that would release so swiftly. Grow Up released less than 12 months after its predecessor, and we were curious to find out what could've changed in that short space of time. As it turns out,...

News: PSN Down Just in Time for the Weekend

PSN Down Just in Time for the Weekend

Typical, eh?

Uh oh, it looks like the PlayStation Network's down. We can't sign into the service here at Push Square Towers, and we're getting buried in reports from unhappy users. Sony's official status website suggests that there's nothing wrong, but clearly, that isn't the case. We're not looking to jump the gun here, but it's at least worth...

Poll: Are You Still Playing No Man's Sky?

Are You Still Playing No Man's Sky?

Or have you lost interest?

It's been a weird old ride for No Man's Sky. Hyped up to infinity and beyond by enthusiastic fans, the press, and just about everyone in between, the space survival sim was met with divided opinion when it launched earlier this month, and even now, people still can't seem to decide whether it's good, bad, or just...

News: Final Fantasy XV Will Have Even More DLC Outside of the Season Pass

Final Fantasy XV Will Have Even More DLC Outside of the Season Pass

The saga continues

Good lord, it just never ends, does it? After last week's kerfuffle regarding the fact that Final Fantasy XV's season pass won't be included in the game's poorly named Ultimate Collector's Edition, game director Hajime Tabata has gone and told Famitsu that more downloadable content is planned that the aforementioned season pass...

News: PS4 Communities Now Support Up to 100k Members

PS4 Communities Now Support Up to 100k Members

Everyone's invited

Communities are a cool but underutilised feature on the PlayStation 4, allowing likeminded gamers to unite over certain titles or topics. If you weren't already aware, there's a Push Square group that you can join right now. The problem for bigger communities is that they were previously limited to 10,000 members. Sony's...

News: The Division DLC Plans Pushed Back as Dev Works on Fixing the Core Game

The Division DLC Plans Pushed Back as Dev Works on Fixing the Core Game

The will to survive

Developer Ubisoft Massive has taken a step back and reanalysed its current situation following a rocky few months for The Division - its co-op based, loot-heavy shooter. The game launched back in March, and, as we recall, was hyped up to be the next big thing. And, while it did manage to make a splash initially, it quickly...

News: One UK Retailer Will Happily Sell You a PS4 Slim Today

One UK Retailer Will Happily Sell You a PS4 Slim Today

Er

This is so bizarre: the PlayStation 4 Slim isn't even announced yet, but there are four available from the CEX in Widnes right now. Somehow, the unannounced console has filtered into the retail channel in the UK, with the leaks seemingly centred in the North Western part of the country. So, if you fancy one of the new systems right now, you may...
