Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 52

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 52

Running late

Wow! It's been a breakneck, busy, bananas kind of week behind-the-scenes here at Push Square Towers, so apologies if our usual programming schedule has been a bit all over the place. The exciting news is that Monday's bureaucracy paved the way for Friday's exuberance, so this author is sitting here with a renewed sense of enthusiasm...

Starbreeze Studios Sells Off Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to 505 Games

A new chapter

Ask anyone who has played Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and they'll tell you that it's a fascinating adventure that culminates with an emotional punch to the gut. Future sequels were hardly implied by this standalone indie title, however, but developer Starbreeze Studios has announced that it has handed the property over to publisher...

You Won't Need to Be a Knight to Nab the Platinum Trophy in PS4's The Order: 1886

Game has gone gold

While the likes of Sir Galahad and crew may require the murky MacGuffin Blackwater to keep their senses sharp, you clearly won't be needing any of the misty liquid to earn the Platinum Trophy in The Order: 1886. Bucking current industry trends, the PlayStation 4 exclusive will boast just 22 Trophies in total – and none of them...

News: Destiny and Minecraft Topped 2014's PSN Sales Charts

Destiny and Minecraft Topped 2014's PSN Sales Charts

Act surprised

Another day, another chance to find out 2014 sales data. This time it's quite interesting, though, as Sony has shared lists of the best selling titles on the PlayStation Network. In North America, Destiny blasted the competition and landed in first place on PS4, while in Europe, Minecraft dug its way to victory on every single console...

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell's Launch Trailer Is Even More Ridiculous Than We Imagined

Fly Johnny, fly

Saints Row IV was an utterly ridiculous experience, and developer Volition seems keen to carry that tone through the series' upcoming expansion, Gat Out of Hell. Of course, we knew that already, but the standalone DLC's launch trailer still managed to surprise us. The video's full of dumb, crass humour and stupid selling points, but...

DriveClub's Lake Shoji Trailer Proves It's Still the PS4's Prettiest Racer

Weather with you

While its launch was nothing short of a total fiasco, PlayStation 4 racer DriveClub has actually managed to find a fairly sizable following. Indeed, the title managed to be the most popular platform exclusive released last year. As was planned, the game is receiving a fairly steady stream of downloadable content, and this trailer...

If Yakuza Zero Doesn't Come West, We'll Cry Manly Tears

Kamurocho calling

If you're a regular Push Square reader, then you'll know that we're massive fans of the Yakuza franchise. A drama-filled series that plays a lot like an action RPG, the games explore stories that are entwined in the underbelly of one of Japan's seediest fictional districts. Yakuza Zero is the latest instalment, and after watching...

News: Ubisoft Developer Reckons Watch Dogs Has "a Lot of Room for Improvement"

Ubisoft Developer Reckons Watch Dogs Has "a Lot of Room for Improvement"

Howling at the moon

When Watch Dogs released last year, we thought that it was a pretty solid sandbox romp, but like many games that had come before it, there was enough to improve upon to make us think that an inevitable sequel would end up being the real highlight. Fortunately, creative director Jonathan Morin agrees with us. In an interview with...

Is It Now Time for Sony to Consider a $349.99 PS4 Price Promotion?

Talking in circles

Stop us if you've heard this one before. Yes, we're back with another familiar article involving PlayStation 4 price points, console sales, and the exact kind of story that's seemingly become our lifeblood over the past few months. Before you dive into the comments to tell us to fix our broken record, though, hear us out: we're...

Sharpen Your Knowledge With The Witcher 3's Recap Trailer

A bloody good time

It's now 2015, and with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt starting to close in on our once peaceful lives, it's time to get hyped with a few minutes of storytelling. Giving a brief overview of what a Witcher actually is, the title's latest trailer is narrated as folklore, and it certainly sets the tone. Now that the ominous Wild Hunt is...

News: DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive of 2014

DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive of 2014

Pulling ahead

It may come as a shock to many, but DriveClub, the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer that was plagued by launch issues, was the UK's best selling exclusive game of 2014. The full list, which comes from MCV, takes console bundles into account, but doesn't follow digital sales, so we can probably assume that the gorgeous drive-'em-up sold by...

Toukiden: Kiwami Brings an End to the Age of Demons on PS4, Vita in March

Oni way to go

It's been rumoured for a little while, but Koei Tecmo has confirmed that Toukiden: Kiwami will lop body parts off a slew of all-new Oni on the PlayStation 4 and Vita imminently. The updated re-release will be available from 27th March in Europe in both physical and digital formats, and 31st March in North America. Start sharpening...

What the Heck's Going on with PlayStation Store Pre-Orders in Europe?

Pre-load problems

There are a total of six PlayStation 4 games available to pre-order on the European PlayStation Store right now, two of which have expanded premium options. This compares pretty poorly to North America, where there's at least double that amount. Noticeable absentees include Resident Evil and Grim Fandango, both of which support...

You Can't Play Yakuza Zero on PS Vita, But This Skin Should Make Up for That

Nifty looking PlayStation TV, too

Yakuza Zero looks awesome. As the title's latest trailer proved, not only will you be able to engage in telephone answering minigames, but you'll also be able to train your own wrestler in the sequel. Of course, the game's currently only confirmed for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, which means that handheld...

You Lot Have Slain Over 2.5 Million Dragons in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Swooping isn't that bad

Dragons are some of the most powerful enemies that you can attempt to slaughter in Dragon Age: Inquisition, but that hasn't stopped players from destroying over 2.5 million of them. The winged beasts are rare in Thedas, with only a handful of fully grown reptiles to find throughout the game, so the fact that so many have...

DriveClub Blossoms in New Nakasendo Track

What do you think, yen?

Remember yesterday's DriveClub teaser? Well, as promised, Evolution Studios has dropped a full video of the Nakasendo-inspired route, which sees you drifting down mountains, racing through tunnels, and past one or two cherry blossom trees. As with all of the other point-to-point courses in the PlayStation 4 exclusive, it...
