Does WWE 2K15 on PS4 Have Heavyweight Pedigree?

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Yes, 2K Sports brought the PlayStation 4 version of WWE 2K15 to the UK’s biggest video game fair this year, EGX London, and throwing ourselves at a free demo unit, it became all too apparent why our fellow revellers were yelling at full...

Whoa, LittleBigPlanet 3 Features a Seriously Star-Studded Voice Cast

Fry and Laurie reunited

The LittleBigPlanet franchise was already leading the pack when it came to narration, thanks to Stephen Fry's dulcet voiceovers.

DriveClub PS4 Reviews Target Pole Position

Low on gas

At least everyone can agree that it looks pretty, right? The first batch of DriveClub reviews have crossed the finish line – and, well, it’s all looking a teensy bit mixed. Despite spending an extra 12 or so months in the tuning shop, Evolution Studios’ next-gen racer appears to have fallen somewhat short of a podium place, with...

Ubisoft Insists That Assassin's Creed Unity Hasn't Been Scaled Back on PS4

Res Misérables

Ubisoft has attempted to still the unrest caused by yesterday’s French Resolution. Some slightly misjudged comments by senior producer Vincent Pontbriand suggested that the publisher had scaled back the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed Unity in order to match the specifications of the Xbox One release, but a spokesperson...

Yes! PSone Title Vib Ribbon Is Rockin' and Rollin' onto the PS Store

Fashionably late

Remember when, for a few fleeting seconds, it seemed like new SCEA president Shawn Layden was going to say something interesting during Sony’s big E3 press conference this year?

Listen to Us Discuss the PS4's Biggest Upcoming Games

Pod thing

One of the biggest requests for Push Square both internally and externally is some kind of podcast, but it’s been on the backburner for some time now. However, at EGX London last week, we decided to give the idea a go, in order to catalogue both our experiences on the show floor – and also see if the concept would actually, y'know,...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (PlayStation 4)

That’s what we’re Tolkien about

It’s natural to be sceptical about licensed video games, and everyone has the right to feel this way about them, especially when a blockbuster-sized one comes around with a burden of expectations and hype to live up to, despite having a broad ancestry of mediocre releases. Of course, we’re referring to...

Review: Alien: Isolation (PlayStation 4)

Alien: Isolation (PlayStation 4)

RIPley

Creative Assembly’s greatest challenge with Alien: Isolation was always going to be keeping the title’s gruesome game of cat and mouse interesting over the course of a complete campaign – and it would have succeeded, if it knew when to roll the credits. There’s always a cry from money conscious consumers for more content, but SEGA’s...
