The Walking Dead: Season Two Stumbles to a Conclusion Next Week

Still keeping that hair short

Regular readers will know that this editor has spent the past few months desperately trying to catch up on Telltale’s episodic adaptation of The Walking Dead. Well, your humble host recently finished Season Two, Episode Four, which means that he’s ready for the finale. And best of all, the misery will unfold from...

21 of the Most Awful PlayStation Network Avatars

Fashion disaster

Buzzfeed is so ridiculous that it’s already broken the fourth wall and started parodying itself, but there’s definitely a degree of entertainment to be derived from human stupidity. While we’re not diving down that rabbit hole, we thought that it was time to pad out the post-Gamescom

These LittleBigPlanet Costumes Clearly Didn't Take Very Long to Make

All different shapes and sizes

There are some absolutely incredible costumes in LittleBigPlanet, which must have taken hours upon hours to produce – but these Thomas Was Alone outfits aren’t an example of that. While the Mike Bithell developed indie carries our coveted stamp of approval, we can see how a game about geometric shapes may not...

Silent Hills' Latest Easter Egg Is Quite Literally Out of This World

Twilight zone

Incredibly, people are still pulling secrets out of last week’s Silent Hills playable teaser. Considering that the demo was built by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, it’s perhaps no real surprise – but this latest Easter egg maintains a long running tradition. If you’ve played a Silent Hill game before, you’ll know that...

Minecraft on PS4 Fails Quality Testing, Gets Buried by Sony for a Little While Longer

There and block again

Evergreen sandbox adventure Minecraft was expected to come out this month on the PlayStation 4, but earlier today, the studio in charge of porting the smash hit announced on Twitter that the game had failed quality testing. "Sony found some issues we have to fix in their final test of Minecraft PS4," 4J Studios wrote, before...

It’s all espionage and beating bad guys over the head with clubs on the PlayStation 4 this week, with CounterSpy and Hotline Miami both deploying as cross-buy releases.

Reaper of souls

It’s a gigantic week in the PlayStation Nation, with more new arrivals than we possible have space to list in this increasingly unnecessary pre-amble paragraph. Highlights include cross-buy espionage adventure CounterSpy, hotly anticipated sequel Tales of Xillia 2, and expanded re-release Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. Let's...

Review: Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition (PlayStation 4)

Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition (PlayStation 4)

Who needs a degree?

Some games just like to poke fun at you, often by being notoriously difficult, with the likes of Dark Souls, Flappy Bird, and QWOP springing to mind. These titles frequently find success through their brutal difficulty levels, and even amass cult followings of dedicated fans, who are able to succeed where so many fail. Surgeon...

Review: Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Tripping the light fantastic

Whenever we played British developer Honeyslug’s latest game Hohokum at conventions and the like, our biggest issue was quite simply explaining the experience to others. What exactly is the vibrant title starring a multicoloured worm all about? Is it art? How do you play it? Heck, what do you even do? Having spent...

Rumour: Is PS2 Classic Earth Defence Force 2 Coming to the Vita?

Is PS2 Classic Earth Defence Force 2 Coming to the Vita?

Fingers crossed

The PlayStation Vita is a pretty nifty piece of tech, but it is woefully lacking when it comes to giant robots. That shouldn't be a problem for much longer, though, as a recent report from Gematsu suggests that fondly remembered PlayStation 2 title Earth Defence Force 2 will soon be ported to the handheld. What's more, it's...

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment (PlayStation Vita)

Sleepy hollow

In an age where we have Project Morpheus lurking right around the corner, Sword Art Online, the popular Japanese anime about gamers entering a virtual gaming world, has resonated with many viewers – especially the gaming crowd. Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment makes its way onto the PlayStation Vita in the form of a third-person...

Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition (PlayStation 4)

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition (PlayStation 4)

Heavenly hell

Diablo III is samey and full of repetition in the best possible way. Sure, the package is packed with some truly stunning cut-scenes and the odd nugget of nonsensical narrative exposition – but it’s the never-ending combat that will keep you hooked. Such a rinse and repeat formula should perhaps be frowned upon, but even through...

Watch a Staggering 37 Minute Gameplay Walkthrough of The Witcher 3 Right Here

What more could you possibly want

We love a good gameplay demo here at Push Square. Cinematic trailers are usually enough to keep the hype flowing — especially around big events like E3 or Gamescom — but it's always the raw gameplay or developer commentary videos that grab us by the collar and demand our attention. You've got to think that if...
