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...

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...

News: Battlezone Demonstrates Yet Again Why It's a PlayStation VR Must Own

Battlezone Demonstrates Yet Again Why It's a PlayStation VR Must Own

Tanks very much

There's no question that Battlezone is the best PlayStation VR title that we've tried to date, so we didn't really need another trailer to sell us on the game. This clip does tease at tons of new features, though, including new enemy types, weapons, and even tanks. The cool thing about this game is that it's got a procedurally...

News: Promising Supernatural Thriller Virginia Solves a Mystery on PS4 Next Month

Promising Supernatural Thriller Virginia Solves a Mystery on PS4 Next Month

Lynch mob

We're not going to lie to you: we hadn't heard of Virginia until today. But according to every article that we've read, the 505 Games published first-person thriller is one to watch – and it's coming to the PlayStation 4 starting 22nd September. As pointed out by the press release, the game's been inspired by genre-bending 90s shows...

Interview: Talking Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom with Koei Tecmo

Talking Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom with Koei Tecmo

Development hurdles, adaptation, and original content

Starting with a hit manga series and since spinning off light novels, a wildly popular anime, several films (both animated and live-action), and a 3DS game, Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan has enjoyed a level of success that easily matches the colossal stature of its unsettling antagonists...

News: Fallout 4's New Nuka World Trailer Shows the Sinister Side of Safety

Fallout 4's New Nuka World Trailer Shows the Sinister Side of Safety

Bottled

With Nuka World now only days away, Bethesda has saw fit to release a new trailer for Fallout 4's final slice of downloadable content - but don't go expecting a load of new gameplay. Instead, the developer's opted for another comical cartoon much like the title's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video series. In this particular clip, Nuka World mascots...
