Review: Futuridium EP Deluxe (PlayStation 4)

Futuridium EP Deluxe (PlayStation 4)

Spacecubes

The work of a space pilot is never done – and in Futuridium EP Deluxe, you'll learn this firsthand. This retro themed shooter attempts to combine classic genre tropes with modern sensibilities, while also providing a cacophony of visual and sonic stimulation. But does this ship reach warp speed, or could it have used a bit longer in the...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 41

Neon pie

We’re teetering on the precipice of gameageddon. Our super secret review document is filled with titles, reviewers have been assigned, and Push Square Towers is awash with complaints regarding the length of certain releases. Anybody would think that we’d entered the third circle of Hell or something. Still, with such animation behind...

DriveClub, Alien: Isolation, NBA 2K15, PlayStation Plus Freebies

It's full of stars

PlayStation Store updates can be dreadfully disappointing affairs. You wait all week for them to come around, only to find that there’s nothing in the lineup that you want to buy. We’re confident that that won’t be the case this coming Tuesday, however, as Sony has compiled one of the most exciting software rosters in...

Yes, You Can Extend Paul Phoenix's Hair in Tekken 7 on PS4

Hair we go

Tekken 7 is still some way away from being released on the PlayStation 4, but Bandai Namco is currently location testing the arcade version around Japan. This pre-release strategy is often employed in the East, as a means for publishers to market their upcoming titles – and also get important feedback on balancing issues and more...

Don't Crash Your Car in DriveClub on PlayStation 4

Over and out of the race

We wished that we could pad out slow news days with pictures of kittens chasing their tails, but unfortunately the company directors may have something to say about that. Fortunately, we can fill out the evening with DriveClub clips, like the one embedded below. Thank you Evolution Studios for giving us something to write...

PS4 Takes the Gadget of the Year Gong at the T3 Awards

Brushes aside iPhone 5S and Xbox One

There’s a good chance that you’re reading this website because you love PlayStation, but let’s not pretend that there aren’t dozens of other snazzy gizmos out there. The market is practically flooded with nifty appliances these days, which perhaps makes the PlayStation 4’s success at the T3 Awards all...

Review: FIFA 15 (PlayStation 4)

FIFA 15 (PlayStation 4)

Straight down the middle

Reviewing FIFA tends to get harder as the years pass, especially when there are no new gameplay innovations or drastic blueprint alterations to shout about. Last year's entry felt like a step up purely because of the graphical and technical improvements that came courtesy of new hardware, but FIFA 15 is obviously unable to...

Kick the Hobbit with This Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Trailer

Looking sharp

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is like the little engine that could. While we were certainly excited for the title, its extremely positive reviews have sealed it as one of the must-have games in the already packed month of October. And in order to remind everyone of its existence, developer Monolith Productions has released a nifty new...

Our Three Favourite PS4 Games from EGX London 2014

The final word

The ballot papers have been collected, counted, rigged, re-counted, and revealed – and Alien: Isolation has won this year’s official EGX London 2014 game of the show. We’re contrary kittens here at Push Square, though, and we reckon that the British gaming public’s got its favourite PlayStation 4 titles in the wrong order...

Alien: Isolation PS4 Reviews Hold Their Breath

Don't make a sound

You’d think that it would be easy to make a game about eight-foot aliens stomping around spaceships. However, if the abysmal Aliens: Colonial Marines taught us anything, it’s that it’s not so straightforward at all. Fortunately, the Creative Assembly has been quietly attempting to write a few wrongs behind its...

First Impressions: Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Squeezing the Cheeks of LittleBigPlanet 3 on PS4

Sack joy

Like a cuddly toy that’s slipped down the side of a forgetful infant’s bed, there’s a sense that LittleBigPlanet 3 is getting overlooked. Caught among the onslaught of holiday releases, Sackboy and his band of burlap buddies have failed to catch the interest of the robotic hordes fawning over annualised outings such as Call of Duty:...

Forget That Awesome UK PS4 Package, This One Is Better

Impulse purchase

There has never been a better time to buy a PlayStation 4 in the UK. Retailers are competing for your custom ahead of the busy Christmas shopping season, and prices are getting slashed like there’s no tomorrow. There are also some great unofficial bundles doing the rounds, like the one that we spotted at GAME earlier in the week...

Rumour: 14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

14GB Will Be Enough to Contain the Cuteness of PS4 Exclusive LittleBigPlanet 3

PS Move compatibility also on the cards

A little like DriveClub, the upcoming LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of those titles that we want nestling on our PlayStation 4’s hard drive. Sony’s exclusive lineup this year seems built around pickup and play experiences that will have long legs, and Sackboy’s latest errand looks particularly likely to...

PlayStation Home May Live on the PlayStation 4 Yet

Another brick in the wall

PlayStation Home is being boarded up. Sony announced late last week that it will be evicting residents from its ambitious virtual world, and dismantling the servers like an old block of flats. For many of us, it’s an opportunity to point and laugh at the service’s protracted lifespan – but this move is going to...

EGX London Hammers Another Nail in PS Vita's Coffin

Dead too soon

Sony managed to squeeze a double-decker bus onto its booth at EGX London last week, but we didn’t spot a single PlayStation Vita. The flailing format has been largely ignored at the platform holder’s various press conferences this year, but has always enjoyed a strong showfloor presence, with titles such as Freedom Wars and

This Enormous PS4 Bundle Is Bordering on Parody

Chuck everything in

In addition to wiping the floor with Microsoft's abhorrent used games policies, Sony’s strategy for the latest generation seems to have centred on one very simple tactic: bundle everything. The platform holder has announced a dizzying number of hardware packages over the past 12 months, and this set available in Germany is the...

Telltale's The Walking Dead, Er, Walks onto PS4 on 24th October

It's about Clemen-time

The Walking Dead has seemingly been shambling onto the PlayStation 4 for months now. However, after an almost endless run of rumours, developer Telltale Games has confirmed that the title will be launching for the super system on 24th October. To be clear, both seasons will be released separately, in digital and
