30th September 2014 (North America)

Lord of the updates

Yes, the holiday rush has arrived. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so big, we’re not entirely sure if the online plaza will be able to cope with it all. In addition to heavy hitters such as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, there are also biggies like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes...

Hack To Your Heart's Content with This Watch Dogs: Bad Blood DLC Launch Trailer

Spoilers, probably

If Watch Dogs' main quest wasn't enough to satiate your appetite for deftly shattering computer software, never fear, as the title will soon be receiving extra downloadable content. Titled Bad Blood, the DLC will see you playing as Raymond 'T-Bone' Kenney, attempting to outrun his past demons. In order to drum up excitement,...

This Is One of the Best PS4 Deals in the UK So Far

Won't break the bank

Retailers around the UK are really fighting for your custom right now, and that’s resulting in some outrageous offers regarding the PlayStation 4. We already saw the system’s price slashed ahead of FIFA 15 last week, but now it seems that GAME is preparing a bundle of epic proportions – which includes three games and a...

First Impressions: Is Pretty PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Victorian Victory?

Is Pretty PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 a Victorian Victory?

Antique action

Insomniac Games may have taken a half-step outside of the House of PlayStation, but Sony may have already found the studio’s replacement in Ready at Dawn. Much of the conversation surrounding Victorian adventure The Order: 1886 has centred on its storyline and steampunk art style, but after a short hands-on demo, we came away more...

Hosted by creative director Mike Laidlaw and producer Cameron Lee, developer BioWare's stream will begin at 18:00PM BST – that's 10:00AM PT and 13:00PM ET for you Americans.

First Impressions: What New Tricks does Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Learn on PS4?

What New Tricks does Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Learn on PS4?

Yes Wei

Many would argue that the original Sleeping Dogs was the overlooked sandbox gem of the last generation. The title's setting of Hong Kong had a quirky feel to it, and gameplay mixed exploration, kung-fu combat, and a surprisingly enjoyable story. It certainly wasn't as polished or as vast in scope as something like Grand Theft Auto V, but...

First Impressions: PS4 Teen Horror Until Dawn Is So Bad That It's Scarily Good

PS4 Teen Horror Until Dawn Is So Bad That It's Scarily Good

#Dead

David Cage makes games that aren’t supposed to be funny, but sometimes wander into the realm of comedy anyway. The Parisian auteur, who’s perhaps best known for PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavy Rain, tends to discuss Quantic Dream’s ‘emotional’ output in a very self-serious manner – and yet, scenes such as ‘Jason, Jason’ often...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Kicks Destiny Off the Top

Got some balls

That didn’t last long, did it? To be fair, a quick glance at the release calendar would have told you that Destiny wouldn’t be dominating the UK sales charts forever – especially with FIFA 15 looming on the horizon. And, unsurprisingly, it’s the soccer simulation that’s knocked Bungie’s first-person shooter off the top,...

Get a Better Look at Nathan Drake's Face in Uncharted 4 on PS4

Drake's pension

There hasn't been a huge amount of new information on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End since E3 earlier in the year, hence why this article is passing our fictional quality assurance test in the first place. Kurt Margenau, the lead game designer on the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, has Tweeted out an image of protagonist Nathan Drake...

Loot Will Be More Likeable in Destiny's 1.02 Patch on PS4

Crypt arse

Let's be honest: the loot system in Destiny is broken. Bungie's latest big thing may be beautiful, but no one cares how good it looks when you can't find the gear that you want — even if you've spent several hours shooting into a void in the hope of finding something worthwhile. Fortunately, upon the discovery of another so-called...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 40

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 40

Pad it out

I don’t care if Monday’s blue, Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday, too; Thursday, I don’t care about you – it’s Saturday, I’m in love. Alright, we lazily adapted the lyrics, but you get the idea, right? Unlike ordinary editions of What Are You Playing, this has been organised extremely early, because much of the Push Square team...

Sony Shutting the Door on PlayStation Home Next Year

Eviction notice

Sony is locking the front door on PlayStation Home — and swallowing the key. The divisive virtual world, which has been in beta since the hazy days of 2008, will officially close on 31st March, 2015 in Europe. At the time of typing, there's no official word on the future of the platform in North America, but given that this was a...

First Impressions: OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood Is Raily Good

OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood Is Raily Good

Grinding cheers

British indie Roll7 knows how to make a game feel good. The studio's inaugural outing OlliOlli felt fantastic, ensuring that you experienced the satisfaction of every single landed trick. With a hit already on its hands, the teensy company is not exactly reinventing the wheel with the pun-tastic PlayStation 4 and Vita sequel...

Round Up: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Reviews Rule the Ring

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Reviews Rule the Ring

Precious

Licensed games are, by and large, atrocious — especially when they're related to J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy franchise Lord of the Rings. That doesn't appear to be the case with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, however, as the tasty tie-in has proved more Gandalf than Gollum. We haven't quite completed our tour through the fictional realm...

OlliOlli 2 Brings Skateboarding Shenanigans to PS4 and Vita in 2015

This is not a drill

OlliOlli is one of the PlayStation Vita's hidden gems; a game so infectiously addictive that it should probably be outlawed. So with this in mind, we're delighted - if slightly concerned - to report that the indie darling will be receiving a sequel. Set to launch on PlayStation 4 and Vita in March 2015, the game is officially...

Power Is Everything in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4

Thank goodness for that

Considering it’s arguably the biggest video game franchise on the planet, it’s been a bit of a shame to see Call of Duty slip behind its peers – both in terms of stale gameplay, and practically rancid visuals. This new trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, however, aims to prove that power changes everything –...
