Driver (PSone)

Reflections in your rear-view mirror

Metal Gear Solid (PSone)

Liquid gold

You’ve just infiltrated a highly secure enemy base using only your cunning and the scant equipment that you happened to find on your way.

Vehicular Soccer Sim Rocket League Scores a PS4 Port

Back of the net

The verbose Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars was a secret PlayStation 3 smash, never necessarily netting the plaudits of the platform’s most popular titles, but quietly cultivating a passionate fanbase all the same. Over six years since its original release, the title is still a favourite among fans, and commands a...

Everything That's Wrong with WWE 2K15 PS4's My Career Mode

CM Flunk

As the only member of the Push Square team that regularly rocks up for work dressed as the Ultimate Warrior, this particular Video Editor was more excited for WWE 2K15 on PS4 than a date with diva extraordinaire, Paige. Unfortunately, as our recent review indicated, the meat of the release, My Career mode, is a dismal disappointment. Allow...

Digimon All-Star Rumble (PlayStation 3)

Digivolve into average

Back in the 90s when Pokémon and Digimon fought for the money of the young, the digital creatures managed to win over many would-be monster trainers thanks to a decent television series, but flash forward two decades, and Digimon has long since past its prime, while Nintendo's catch-'em-up continues to dominate the handheld...

You'll Be Seeing More of The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne at The Game Awards

The Keigh to success

It's going to be a big week for news here at Push Square, with two major events looming large enough on the horizon to make our news team collectively shake in its boots.

Game of Thrones PS4, PS3 Reviews Fall at Your Feet

Forrester gump

Telltale Games mustered some impressive review scores for the first instalment in its Tales from the Borderlands series last week, so can its heavily publicised Game of Thrones spin-off secure the same acclaim? Surprisingly, not quite – but the scores for Episode 1: Iron from Ice are not exactly bad. A slow build-up appears to b

Game of Thrones' PS4, PS3 Launch Trailer Acts All Dramatic

Sitting pretty

Alright, we’ve exhausted our entire knowledge of the Game of Thrones franchise in previous articles, so you’re just going to have to excuse our ignorance in this one. Telltale Games has released a launch trailer for Episode 1: Iron from Ice, and it features a few famous faces – and voices to boot. We’re just pleased that, new...

Rumour: Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China

Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China

Business development

Considering that PlayStation is already enormous in Japan and most of Asia, it was strange to see Sony allow the Xbox One to deploy in China first. Microsoft’s machine launched in the potentially lucrative region earlier in the year, and there’s been very little word from its rival when the PlayStation 4 will follow in its...

Just What the Heck Is PS4's EMAGON?

Shrugs

... And so it begins. We already expected the bulk of this week to be riddled with teaser trailers and subtle hints, but we didn’t anticipate that we’d be stumped as soon as Monday evening. Scratching our collective heads we are, though, as the Spanish PlayStation Blog has uploaded a video for “PlayStation's best hidden secret”. The...
