Review: Dragon Ball XenoVerse (PlayStation 4)

Dragon Ball XenoVerse (PlayStation 4)

Sparking!

If you're a fan of Dragon Ball, be it the brilliantly detailed original manga series or the animated adaptation, the chances are that the story is now embedded deep within your psyche – especially if you've played even just a few of the licensed games over the years. It's hard to surprise a fan, then, because they already know the plot...

Interview: We Cross-Examine Danganronpa's Producer in Lightning Fast Time

We Cross-Examine Danganronpa's Producer in Lightning Fast Time

Under pressure

Interviews are something that we're trying to do more of here on Push Square. Hearing directly from the personalities behind our favourite games is always going to make for an interesting read, but unfortunately, we don't always get a lot of time. In this instance, we managed to pin down Danganronpa producer Yoshinori Terasawa just...

Review: Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires (PlayStation 4)

Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires (PlayStation 4)

Empires of the Sun

Trying to describe Dynasty Warriors' spin-off Empires series is a difficult proposition, even to someone who's familiar with the franchise's main instalments. At their core, the games are the same, in that gameplay still involves hacking and slashing your way through entire armies in a bid to conquer China, but it's everything...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 PS4 Reviews Are a Sight for Sore Eyes

You've got Redfield on you

With so many games adopting different pricing models and release structures these days, it's becoming increasingly difficult to figure out a review strategy that makes sense. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 really takes the biscuit, though, launching on a disc in March – but also as part of four weekly episodes on the...

Don't Hold Your Breath for the PS3 Version of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round in Europe

Ayane angry

And so the Dead or Alive 5: Last Round saga lurches on to round three. After failing to show up on the PlayStation Store in Europe last week, Koei Tecmo confirmed yesterday that the title would be available from Wednesday on the PlayStation 4. What of the PlayStation 3 version, however? Well, that's still in SCEE limbo, according

News: Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Continues to Look like One of Vita's Most Promising Games

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Continues to Look like One of Vita's Most Promising Games

Ultimate, if not mega

We're not going to sugar-coat it -- we're absolutely desperate for Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth to make it overseas. The Vita role-playing game, which features turn based battles and a heck of a lot of Digimon, is releasing soon in Japan, but there's been no concrete word on a Western release. Our interest's been piqued by the...

You Lot Have Butchered 5.65 Billion Uruks in Shadow of Mordor

Bloody Mordor

Oof, that's quite an impressive statistic isn't it? Since the game's launch, players have killed 5.65 billion Uruks in total, and according to the graphic that we've posted, that equates to about 76 kills per hour. Meanwhile, only 200 million uglies have been dominated, proving once and for all that there's nothing more satisfying...

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (PlayStation Vita)

htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (PlayStation Vita)

Fly away

With a title like htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary, this latest PlayStation Vita puzzle platformer seems like a strange fit for the Western market. However, niche publisher NIS America has made its name by bringing quirky little curios overseas, and Sony's handheld is certainly a haven for the unusual. The game sees you controlling fireflies –...

Review: AeternoBlade (PlayStation Vita)

AeternoBlade (PlayStation Vita)

Aeterno punishment

If there's a checklist for revenge you'd imagine it would go something like this: Step One – dig two graves; Step Two – serve cold. In AeternoBlade – a new action platform title on the PlayStation Vita – the game's heroine, Freyja, could certainly use just such a list. Not only has her hometown just been levelled by Dark...

Review: Q*Bert Rebooted (PlayStation 4)

Q*Bert Rebooted (PlayStation 4)

@!#?@!

It's easy to name the quintessential arcade games of the 80s, like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Space Invaders – after all, these are timeless titles that still carry pop culture sway today. However, one of the heavy hitters that's somewhat faded into history is Q*Bert, an isometric puzzle platformer that rivalled Pac-Man's stature during its...

PS4 Brawler Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Delayed Until Wednesday on EU PS Store

Slow clap

We suspect that the folks at Koei Tecmo feel like going all Ryu Hayabusa on Sony's ass right now, as Dead or Alive 5: Last Round has been delayed until Wednesday on the European PlayStation Store. While this doesn't sound so bad in isolation, it's worth noting that the title was due out on Friday, but failed to show up on the PlayStation...

Celebrate PlayStation Vita's Birthday with Free Gifts in North America

Tons of deals, too

Technically, the PlayStation Vita reached toddler status over the weekend – but seeing as the folks at Sony have only just returned to the office, we'll forgive them this belated birthday gift. In order to celebrate the handheld's third anniversary in North America, the platform holder has prepared a bevy of free gifts and...

Opinion: How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

Good and bad

There's a growing sentiment among the gaming press that sites like this one are an outdated concept. Apparently, people no longer want to read a considered critique of a game – they'd rather watch a playthrough on YouTube or Twitch, with some commentary from a popular personality. It's something that's constantly on this author's...

DriveClub: PlayStation Plus Edition Still Being Looked at for PS4

Patience is a virtue

DriveClub runs like butter these days, but Evolution Studios has said that the racer's promised PlayStation Plus version is still not ready for primetime. And in an interview with Metro, SCEE boss Jim Ryan has furthered that the format holder still has nothing to share on the subject. "That's still being looked at," he said of...

Sony Suggests It Will Be Streamlining Its Day One PS4 Patches

"We're going to tighten up"

Want to know the worst thing about the PlayStation 3? You'd put in a disc, and then proceed to twiddle your thumbs while you waited for it to install. Fortunately, the PlayStation 4 solves many of these issues, but it's introduced a new one in its place: the dreaded day one patch. These are getting bigger and bigger as...
