Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition's PS4 Gameplay Trailer Tells You Everything You Need to Know

Know your role

Divinity: Original Sin garnered quite a lot of attention when it originally launched on PC.

OMG! Here's a bit of a Push Square poll for you on this fine Thursday morning: how many of you remember République? None of you – well, that was to be expected.

Volume's Getting a New, Harder Difficulty Setting

Cranking up the volume

Opinion: What the Hell Is Everybody's Gone to the Rapture About?

What the Hell Is Everybody's Gone to the Rapture About?

Theories, suggestions, and themes

You could argue that the "game" portion of Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is trying to piece it all together. The Chinese Room's latest so-called walking simulator is not especially mechanically dense, restricting much of its action to the DualShock 4's two analogue sticks and a single button. This is a title...

Rainbow Six: Siege Dodges a Bullet with PS4 Delay

Will now deploy in December

When we controversially claimed over the weekend that no one gives a hoot about Rainbow Six: Siege, we weren't being mean about Ubisoft's latest shooter.
