  • Game of the Year 2017 John's Personal Picks

    Fractured but whole

    As is becoming an annual tradition here at Push Square Towers, we’ve corralled our core group of staff writers and prodded them until they’ve told us what their favourite five games of the year are. With such a strong assortment to select from, added force was required in some instances. We threatened to jot down John...

  • Game of the Year 2017 #2 - Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

    Review Mortal Blitz

    Time Crisis in VR

    Playing through Mortal Blitz feels like going back in time, which is a strange feeling when you’re talking about a VR game – but it’s true. What we have here is effectively Time Crisis in virtual reality, which sounds like a match made in heaven and, we feel, is likely to be a fitting genre when implemented well. There’s...

  • Game of the Year 2017 #3 - Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Thunderjaw dropping

    It still seems crazy to think that the studio responsible for the Killzone series, a PlayStation mainstay for well over a decade, would make such a creative leap. From a dingy first-person shooter series of fluctuating quality to a vast, vibrant open world RPG, rarely do we see studios of Guerrilla’s size and reputation stray...

  • Talking Point What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 200

    Milestone edition

    Wow! We’ve actually reached Issue 200 of WAYP, and we’ve still managed to maintain a flawless weekly record. That’s some feat because it means this feature has been running for roughly four years – in fact, it’s longer because the series started life as a bi-weekly article helmed by our very own Katy Ellis. She’s...

  • Game of the Year 2017 #8 - Yakuza 0

    Smooth criminal

    The Yakuza series has been around since the heyday of PlayStation 2, and yet the series never really felt like it got going in the West. This author's in the camp where he had never really played a Yakuza game before 0. This flashback episode opened up an entry point to a series that has forever held interest only for many to be...
