Rise of the Tomb Raider Could Still Plot Lara Croft's Revival on PS4

"We'll come back to that at a later date"

There's a real danger that Rise of the Tomb Raider could end up being defined by behind-the-scenes business decisions, and Game Informer's latest cover story is evidence of that. While the publication's coverage includes plenty of details about Lara Croft's forthcoming foray, most people want to know one...

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...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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...

Heavenly Sword's Art Director Has Returned to Ninja Theory to Work on Hellblade

The circle of life

Ninja Theory's forthcoming PlayStation 4 foray Hellblade is clearly a spiritual successor to Heavenly Sword – that name's a dead giveaway, after all – but the Cambridge-based developer has recruited the PlayStation 3 exclusive's art director, Hugues Giboire, just to make the link complete. The veteran has rejoined the team...
