What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 34

Let's try something new

You wanted it, so we’re doing it: WAYPTW will now be published on a weekly basis. In order to make this work, we’re not changing the format, but we’re going to keep the actual article portion more condensed than ever before. This is simply to help us to turn these pieces around much quicker. Otherwise, it’s the same...

Gamescom 2014: BioWare Reckons You'll Be Able to Spend Over 200 Hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare Reckons You'll Be Able to Spend Over 200 Hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Extinction

We hope that there are enough dragons roaming the wilderness in Dragon Age: Inquisition, because we think that you'll be killing plenty of them if you're to spend over 200 hours with the upcoming RPG. Speaking with IGN, producer Cameron Lee reckons that "a completist playthrough takes more than 200 hours," which no doubt...

Review: Metrico (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Metrico (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Graph-ical grunt

Metrico is the first effort by fledgling Dutch studio Digital Dreams, but you wouldn't guess that by looking at it. Featuring incredibly striking art design, and seemingly solid gameplay, it looks like the work of a much more mature developer. But is this algebraic adventure a balanced equation, or is it using the wrong formulas?...

Gamescom 2014: Far Cry 4 Still Looks Stunning on PS4

Far Cry 4 Still Looks Stunning on PS4

Wish you were here

The majority of Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference this week hinged on new and original ideas, but there were a few known quantities throughout the media briefing, too. One of those was Far Cry 4, which popped up as part of a quick cameo – honestly, most likely due to contractual obligations between Ubisoft and the...

Weirdness: You Did Not Want to Look at PlayStation's Twitch Channel Last Night

You Did Not Want to Look at PlayStation's Twitch Channel Last Night

Think of the children

Trolls are an unfortunate part of the Internet, and something that we all have to learn to deal with. However, filtering out a few comments is easy – but avoiding offensive streams on Twitch is not. Overnight, hackers managed to compromise PlayStation’s official broadcasting account, essentially leading to the creation of...

You'll Be Able to Make Trailers for Your Levels in LittleBigPlanet 3

All through the power of share

Sackboy may have had his nose pushed out a little bit this week due to the announcement of dozens of other PlayStation 4 games, but he’s been waiting patiently for us to provide a little update on, er, LittleBigPlanet 3. So, here we are: it’s looking like a real step forward for the series, partly due to the...

Paris Looks Rather Resplendent in This 11 Minute Assassin's Creed Unity Gameplay Walkthrough

All Arno-thing

Yesterday we got our first proper look at last-gen only title Assassin's Creed Rogue courtesy of an eight minute gameplay trailer, but after seeing this 11 minute walkthrough for Assassin's Creed Unity, we're starting to really appreciate why publisher Ubisoft is keeping this one a current-gen exclusive. Simply put, the city of

Soapbox: Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey on PS4

Here's Why I Will Be Playing Journey on PS4

With hopes of starting over

I understand where Polygon scribe Colin Campbell is coming from when he says that he won’t be playing the recently announced PlayStation 4 conversion of thatgamecompany’s seminal spiritual adventure, Journey. Like the author in question, I too haven’t booted the game since a gloomy morning in

Feature: How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

Keeping score

One thing that we’ve always been keen to maintain here at Push Square Towers is that our predictions always remain realistic. Every site under the sun likes to make a press conference prophecy prior to a big gaming convention – after all, the build up is a large part of the fun – but we’ve never been a fan of those misleading...

Gamescom 2014: The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The saga continues

It wouldn't be a major videogame industry event without a Sony executive making an offhand remark about The Last Guardian. This time, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny was on hand to make sure that we know the title is still very much a part of the Japanese giant's long term strategy. "There are no new...

Gamescom 2014: How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00's Share Play Feature Work?

How Does PS4 Firmware Update 2.00's Share Play Feature Work?

Honestly, like magic

To date, the social aspects of the PlayStation 4 have all been based upon existing concepts. Placing the share button on the DualShock 4 was undoubtedly a stroke of genius, but there’s nothing especially original about uploading gameplay clips to Facebook or broadcasting live on Twitch. However, with firmware update v2.00,...

Gamescom 2014: Rockstar Wants Grand Theft Auto V PS4 to Blow You Away

Rockstar Wants Grand Theft Auto V PS4 to Blow You Away

"Nothing but the very best will satisfy Rockstar"

Grand Theft Auto V was no slouch on the PlayStation 3. The title had its visual flaws for sure, but it still largely pushed the boundaries of what’s possible on Sony’s previous generation machine. However, the PlayStation 4 port will take things to the next level – and Take-Two boss Strauss...
