19th August 2014 (North America)

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...

Review: Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment (PlayStation Vita)

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...

News: There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

Even more PS4 and Vita announcements incoming

You didn’t think that Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference represented the last of the year, did you? As you should already have learned by now, the Japanese giant loves a good livestream, and, as such, it’s set to host another one on 1st September ahead of the Tokyo Game Show. This same...

PlayStation Boss Gets Punished for All of E3's Boring Bits This Year

This is for Powers

Regardless of whether or not you liked the content, Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference was much better paced than its E3 2014 one. The folks at SCEE cut out all of the fat, and peppered the organisation’s media briefing in Cologne with trailers, announcements, and very little corporate gobbledygook. SCEA boss Shawn...

Out This Week: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Nothing weedy about this week

We may still be nursing our Gamescom 2014 hangover with a packet of paracetamol, but the release calendar is not going to give us time to dawdle on the job. This is a surprisingly stacked week for all three PlayStation platforms, with no less than 11 new titles due out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita...

News: PS4 Live Streams Are About to Get a Lot More Interesting

PS4 Live Streams Are About to Get a Lot More Interesting

Potentially, anyway

It’s not always easy for a company to predict how consumers will decide to use a particular product, and The Playroom on the PlayStation 4 will definitely have raised a few eyebrows when it started to get used – and, in some instances, abused – by next-gen early adopters. However, recognising the swell of demand for live...
