Infinity Ward Sounds Excited for Its Turn with Call of Duty in 2016

Duty calls

Phwoar, there's nothing like a vague tweet to get you hyped for an upcoming release. This time around, veteran Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward is hitting the hype train, writing that 2016 "is going to be incredible". For those out of the loop, this year should mark Infinity Ward's turn with Activision's mega franchise. The series...

Fallout 4's Biggest Improvement Is Stealth

Michael acknowledges the Commonwealth’s underappreciated undercover

Note: There are minor Fallout 4 story spoilers in this article. Fallout 4 does a lot of things wrong. The dialogue system is a mess, the perk tree feels dumbed down, and the lack of choices throughout the game is disheartening. You've probably heard those complaints a thousand...

Star Wars Games May Have Made Too Much Money in 2015

Analyst predicts Battlefront raked in $660 million

The launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was certainly a big deal, with the film's opening weekend income totalling almost $250 million worldwide, smashing many box office sales records in the process. And, according to a Fortune interview with multiple financial analysts, the many Star Wars...

The 10 Best PlayStation Games of 2015

Final countdown

Blimey oh riley, 2016's all up in my face and that bottle of bourbon's making it difficult to stomach. But before this intoxicated video editor chunders all over a blank page, perhaps you'd enjoy our pre-recorded video spotlighting the top ten PlayStation titles from the past 12 months. There's some good stuff in here, like...

Game of the Year: #1 - Bloodborne (PS4)

#1 - Bloodborne (PS4)

Blood on the moon

Bloodborne reeks of brutal brilliance. From Software's violent eviscerate-'em-up pegs you as a personality-less predator, as you stomp the Gothic cobbles of Yharnam in search of monstrous prey to mutilate. A spiritual successor to the Souls series, Hidetaka Miyazaki's vulgar PlayStation 4 exclusive adopts a more aggressive angle...

Here's to an Amazing 2016 on Push Square

Level up

If you'd have told me 12 months ago that The Last Guardian, Shenmue III, and Final Fantasy VII Remake would be real, I wouldn't have believed you. It's been a roller coaster 2015 for PlayStation fans – and that's without even mentioning Hideo Kojima's decision to partner with Sony on a new PlayStation 4 exclusive. But while the...

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Should Be Among 2015's Greatest Games

Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Wolfenstein: The New Order went under the radar when it hit shelves in mid-2014. The advertising portrayed it as a reboot that appeared over-the-top and generic. You shoot Nazis, and I've done that countless times already. What creativity could MachineGames jam into this rusty chamber of a tired premise that would...

Uncharted 4's Latest Trailer Looks Even Better in LittleBigPlanet 3

Buried in burlap

It's been a while since we posted about LittleBigPlanet 3, hasn't it? This recreation of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's theatrical trailer deserves recognition, though, as it's pretty much spot on. Yes, the engine struggles a little bit with the complex 3D scene, but c'mon – this is damn incredible. Incidentally, are any of you...

Game of the Year: #2 - Rocket League (PS4)

#2 - Rocket League (PS4)

Wow! Wow! Close one! No problem.

Psyonix just nailed it. Rocket League was released relatively quietly with PlayStation Plus this summer, it was downloaded and played by millions, and the rest is history. It's a hit with the press, it's a hit with gamers, it's an eSport, it's all over YouTube, and in today's gaming climate, that's a pretty big...

Why Mad Max Is a Hugely Overlooked Game

Sam Brooke on a world gone mad

Mad Max didn't really make any Game of the Year lists, yet I feel that it's been hugely overlooked, and that it has plenty to offer. The game, on paper, should've just been another boring Ubisoft open-worlder: camps to infiltrate, viewpoints to climb up to and survey, skill trees, upgrades, and all the usual stuff...

The Best PlayStation Soundtracks of 2015

Like music to our ears

With 2015 winding down, it's only natural that 'Best Of' lists are beginning to pop up everywhere you look. While games themselves get a lot of attention when it comes to these sorts of lists, the accompanying soundtracks get a little less love. We're here to change that and deliver our list of the ten best soundtracks to...
