14th April 2015 (North America)

Late to the party

We may be late posting the North American PlayStation Store update – but that doesn't mean that the content's changed. Your interest in this article may have, however, so we're pondering whether it's worth putting any effort into this pre-amble at all. In fact, we could probably post this video of a slipping Buckingham Palace...

Screenshots and a Teaser Trailer Give You a Glimpse of Star Ocean 5 on PS4

Look to the stars

We knew that it wouldn't be long before Square Enix started running the media tap with regards to Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness. As such, the publisher's released two pretty looking screenshots and one teaser trailer for the upcoming sci-fi role-playing game. The pictures mostly give an idea of what sort of...

Even Xbox's Boss Is Impressed by Bloodborne's PS4 Sales

Hunter's dream

In a move that's been no way orchestrated by Microsoft's marketing team, Phil 'One of Us' Spencer has congratulated Sony on the success of Bloodborne, which has already surpassed one million sales globally. To be fair to the Xbox chief, he did at least acknowledge that people would raise eyebrows at the message – so there's that...

Costume Quest 2 Gets a Timely European Release Date

A trick and a treat

After spending, oh, just the eight months in SCEE quality assurance hell, Costume Quest 2 is finally ready for, er, Hallowe'en. The game's already available on the PlayStation 3 in Europe, but missed the Holiday of Horrors by some margin on the PlayStation 4. There's no word as to why the game was delayed – maybe it couldn't...

First Impressions: Taking One on the Chin in Mortal Kombat X on PS4

Taking One on the Chin in Mortal Kombat X on PS4

You make me larrrf, Kitana

Mortal Kombat X is genuinely funny. You can bombard us with Johnny Cage-esque green orbs in the comments all you like, but there's no way that developer NetherRealm built this game with a straight face. And that's a good thing. The amount of tomfoolery on display at times is outrageous – and it's bettered only by the...

Destiny's New Patch Detailed, Gets Suspend and Resume Improvements on PS4

Bloodborne Patch Will Bust Up Bad Load Times Soon

Various other fixes pledged

If there's one problem that we'd point at Bloodborne – aside from those dreaded Defiled Chalice dungeons – it's the long load times. Sure, you can pretty much run from one end of the world to the other without ever seeing a stumbling block – grotesque enemies aside – but having to travel to and from the Hunter's...

The good blood

And now that Bloodborne's out of the way, it's back to your regularly scheduled slice of Game of the Month video goodness – in which your humble host talks Bloodborne. We let the good blood guide us this time out, as we get to the bottom of the PlayStation 4 exclusive's plot – and compare it to election debates. Both make about as...

Bloodborne Sales Are Off to a Bloody Good Start

Blood echoes retrieved

Can you smell the iron? According to Sony, PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne had sold over one million copies by the 5th April, which means that the brilliantly gothic adventure hit that sales milestone after just over a week on the market. To put this feat into perspective, it took Dark Souls II, a multiplatform title,...

That Terrible Teaser Trailer? That Is Guitar Hero Live

Launching on PS4, PS3 this year

Well, this is all unexpected, isn't it? Activision released an atrocious teaser trailer for Guitar Hero Live yesterday, the next entry in its dormant shredding series – but we thought that it was just a mood piece. Actually, it turns out that British developer FreeStyleGames is making a full motion video game –...

Sony's Showing Shadow of the Beast in London Today

Alienation also on display

One game that we often get queried about here on Push Square is Shadow of the Beast: has it been cancelled? Heavy Spectrum's take on Psygnosis' classic is hotly anticipated among some of our older readers, and for good reason – the original Reflections releases were among some of the most visually impressive for their...

Rumour: Guitar Hero Live Goes First-Person

Guitar Hero Live Goes First-Person

No, really

There's something funny about Call of Duty publisher Activision turning Guitar Hero Live – the next entry in the storied rhythm series – into a first-person rock-'em-up. However, a leaked report from Yahoo! France suggests that that's exactly what British studio Freestyle Games is about to reveal later today, as it attempts to put...

Finish them

Mortal Kombat X is a slick fighter for sure – but let's be honest here, the fatalities are the real draw.

Hunt Down Your First Look at Destiny's House of Wolves With Its First Trailer

The will of the pack

As expected, Activision's gone ahead and revealed the teaser trailer for House of Wolves, Destiny's second slice of DLC. It's a decent little snippet that hints at a promising storyline, although after what the game's promised in the past, you'll have to excuse us for not getting our hopes up. The 'expansion', which has been...

Is Evolve's DLC a Colossal Scam?

Monstrous pricing

Just over a month since we donned the monster hunting boots of Evolve, we're now greeted with the anticipated Hunting Season Pass and, for those of you who pre-ordered, the Monster Expansion pack. The core release was received in a rather mixed fashion by most – gleaning a solid if unspectacular 6/10 in our review – but with...
