Sony and Square Enix Are at It Again with Dragon Quest Builders' Marketing

Another brick in the wall

Remember when Sony partnered with Square Enix to cover Shinjuku train station in Dragon Quest Heroes bubble wrap?

UK Sales Charts: Resident Evil, Life Is Strange Mix Things Up

Rising S.T.A.R.S.

Praise the gaming gods: there's change in this week's UK sales charts. Don't get too excited, mind – there's not that much for us to write about.

Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Treading water

It's been another relatively dismal week here at Push Square Towers, lifted perhaps only by the bevy of big reviews that we've published. Resident Evil Zero and This War of Mine: The Little Ones both scored well, while World of Tanks was a teensy bit less successful. In terms of features, we ranked the Top 20 PlayStation 4 games to...

Valkyria Chronicles May March onto Western PS4 Consoles Yet

Heart forth, Alicia Melchiott

SEGA's caught the announcement of an announcement bug, as it's been busy teasing away for a few days now. Its previous hint turned out to be a Nintendo 3DS compilation cartridge, but its latest hint may rustle the jimmies of PlayStation 4 fans.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 102

Gotta go fast

Despite being the weekend, your humble host has a lot to do today, so consider this edition of WAYP hastily assembled like a ploughman's sandwich without any lettuce or tomato – or pickle, for that matter.

PS4 Exclusive DriveClub Ups the Ante with Hardcore Mode

Evolution, indeed

"What the Dickens!" Push Square boss man Anthony Dickens is sure to exclaim when he reads this article. The big cheese struggles with DriveClub in its default simcade state, so Hardcore mode is sure to have him staring at the luxuriously rendered roadside bumpers with more regularity. Game director Paul Rustchynsky confirmed the...

There are already a handful of canned Saints Row projects that have leaked over the years, but Saints Row Undercover – a PlayStation Portable spin-off of Saints Row 2 – was forgotten by practically everyone.

Life Is Strange's Hella Hawt PS4 Retail Release Is Out Now

Max power

Life Is Strange was one of the surprise releases of 2015: a teen drama aimed with pin-point precision at this author's heart – only for everyone else to fall in love with it and ruin his whole "hipster gamer" façade. The game proved so successful on digital platforms that Square Enix has decided to release a retail version, and...

The Best Games on PS4 - Winter 2016 Edition

Back for more

It's been six months since we controversially categorised the best games on the PlayStation 4, and a lot has happened since then.

So, in what we...

Okay, Dead or Alive 5's Super Retro Anime Costumes are Pretty Cool

Cue cheesy music

Even though we often think that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round's costume downloadable content is hilariously overpriced, we sometimes do have to admit that the outfits themselves are rather impressive. Once again, this is the case with the fighter's latest pack, which is available now. Based on the looks of characters found in...
