Last one Stranding
Death Stranding is out now, but how many of you are playing it this weekend? It's the biggest PlayStation 4 exclusive of the holidays, but is it on your radar or do your interests lie elsewhere? This is what we're playing this weekend. Robert Ramsey, Deputy Editor: I look forward to a relatively relaxing weekend as I take a walk...

Last man Stranding
Halloween is over and the nights are drawing in, meaning that it’s November and Death Stranding is almost here. Of course you’ve still got a few more days left before you can try out Hideo Kojima’s opus, so let us know what you’ll be playing to fill the time. Robert Ramsey, Deputy Editor: Now that Big Review Season...

Every now and again you'll see a fan created trailer for their favourite game, and they're often pretty good. For example, check out the below take on Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Reddit user gunjoesmithy has reimagined Nate's inaugural adventure as an early 2000s action comedy movie, and we'd say they've nailed it. All the...

Sammy's staggered by PlayStation's statistics
There’s life left in the PlayStation 4, but it’s already outpaced the PSone’s eye-watering 102.49 million units install base and established itself as the second best-selling home console ever made. It’s got some work to do before it catches the PlayStation 2’s mind-blowing 155 million units,...

After a couple of weeks off, your humble host is back to post the latest WAYP. That means that it’s a desperately short edition, because apparently no one cares to respond to Sammy’s requests. The good news is that the comments are always action packed in these articles, so you’re going to have to pick up the slack in the space...

Big and beautiful
Update: The chart below has been updated based on new information from UKIE. Original Story: We're afraid the UK is rather unimaginative when it comes to buying video games -- especially when the new footie game from EA is out. The latest physical chart sees FIFA 20 once again in the top spot, and it's maintained this position...
Saturday19th Oct 2019
It's been raining near constantly outside the Push Square Towers window, and with all those autumnal leaves littering the ground, going outside is a borderline health risk. Rather than risking our lives walking along slippery pavements, we'll be staying indoors playing video games, thanks very much. Feel free to use that excuse if...

Code Vein somehow makes top ten
2K Games’ double-billing of NBA 2K20 and Borderlands 3 jumped to the top of the USA sales charts for September, as industry spend continued to sink year-over-year due to dwindling hardware numbers. Total industry spend topped out at $1.278 billion – down eight per cent compared to the same month last year. FIFA 20...
Tuesday15th Oct 2019
Here’s an outlandish idea: what if the PlayStation 5 could play games from every PlayStation console ever made – including the handhelds? To be clear, that would include: PS5, PS4, PS3, PS2, PSone, PS Vita, and PSP – the manufacturer’s entire 25 year history, in one device. Obviously, we wouldn’t expect the next-gen console to...

FIFA 20 scores a hat-trick
If you were hoping last week's new releases were going to shake things up in the UK's bestsellers, you're flat out of luck. FIFA 20 is still very much in prime position, landing a third consecutive number one. Ghost Recon: Breakpoint also lands a consistent result with another second place finish. GRID is the only new...

Sammy Strikes Again
With the fall setting in, things are getting a little cooler and a little rainier lately. You know what that means: new games are starting to arrive, and it's the perfect time to dive in. Whether it's something from your backlog or a fresh purchase, won't you join us on a lazy gaming weekend? Sammy Barker, Editor: This weekend...

Go sports team
FIFA 20 is out, and as always, the franchise reigns supreme in the UK chart. It's at number one for the second time, despite a major new release from Ubisoft. Ghost Recon: Breakpoint has had to settle for a second place debut, although we expect this game to stick around for a bit. Its predecessor went on to sell very well, so it's...

Tell me your wish
How has the weather changed so quickly? One minute we were wearing shorts, now we’re hugging our winter jackets. The good news is that you have absolutely no reason to go outside anymore, so it’s time to catch up on that growing collection of video games you’ve been side-eyeing all summer. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’m taking...
Tuesday1st Oct 2019
Well, this is a big surprise. One of the UK's favourite franchises is FIFA, and the latest entry has once again done the numbers for EA. FIFA 20 debuts at number one despite a decline in physical sales -- but let's not forget that digital is making an increasingly large dent on retail figures. Other new releases didn't fare quite so...

A Trophy hunter's end
In recent years, Sony has had the habit of shutting down its multiplayer servers, especially with its first-party PlayStation 3 games. The worst thing about not being able to play a substantial part of these games anymore is the fact that it renders the multiplayer Trophies unobtainable after the servers are shutdown. In May...
The impossible lair
Well, like you, we wish we were playing The Last of Us: Part II this weekend – but sadly we’re going to have to wait a few more months for that. In the meantime, there’s plenty on our docket, with October and November both looking particularly stacked. Here’s what we’re playing this weekend. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

Less loot for the Gearbox shooter this week
New releases are starting to come thick and fast, and while those on PlayStation 4 didn't make much of a dent, it's a different story for Nintendo. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening takes number one in the latest physical chart, forcing Borderlands 3 down into second place. As we mentioned, PS4's new...
Saturday21st Sep 2019
There’s just a few weeks until Death Stranding drops, but you should have plenty to keep you occupied in the interim. We’re busy beavering away with a bunch of games here at Push Square Towers, as we endeavour to bring you more reviews over the busy holiday period. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’m working my way through Contra: Rogue...
Monday16th Sep 2019
The end-of-year releases are starting to arrive, and that's very much evident in the latest physical UK chart. As you might expect, Borderlands 3 comes in at the very top, but it's done more than just reach number one. Geabox's looter shooter managed the UK's largest launch at retail in 2019, topping Days Gone's impressive figures. It beats...

Back to the beginning
The long-awaited Borderlands 3 has finally arrived, but the review schedule is so busy that it's not the only title on the agenda of our esteemed editors. In fact, this is quite the eclectic WAYP. Stephen Tailby, Associate Editor: For me, this weekend is all about review duty. Two games are waiting for my critical gaze, both...

Madden still on top
Game sales sank to a 20-year low in August 2019 in the United States, with overall consumer spend falling 18 per cent year-over-year. All sectors registered declines, with Nintendo Switch once again dominating the hardware charts. The performance was so poor across the board last month that it’s actually dragged down the entire...
Monday9th Sep 2019
We're starting to see change in the UK's physical game chart. After a pretty barren summer, the new releases are beginning to shake things up. For example, NBA 2K20 has made its mark, scoring a number one in its first week. Meanwhile, Catherine: Full Body manages a top 10 debut in ninth. Last week's quartet of new titles has dispersed;...

Welcome to the next
Oh, it’s busy now. Just like that, the gaming calendar has launched into life, and we’ve got more to play than we can possibly cope with. Hot releases right now include Control and Catherine: Full Body, but there’s so much around the corner that we’ve been forced to be organised. For once. Sammy Barker, Editor: I’ll...

Switch isn't the Director's Cut
Who would have thought that Deadly Premonition 2 would be a thing 24 hours ago? Deadly Premonition 2! Nevertheless, the sequel that nobody saw coming was announced in last night's Nintendo Direct along with a port of the original game to the Switch, but it turns out that version isn't quite the definitive release.
Monday2nd Sep 2019
Sony's not doing itself any favours lately. DriveClub has been delisted from the PlayStation Store (slightly too soon in some parts of the world) and is due to have its servers switched off early next year. Now, the multiplayer servers for PS3 games Uncharted
New releases duke it out
The summer games drought is over, everyone. After weeks of almost no activity in the UK's physical chart, several notable titles drop all at once. Surprise surprise, they're all right at the top, with Nintendo's Astral Chain taking first place. It had its work cut out, though, with Wreckfest, Man of Medan, and Control also...
Saturday31st Aug 2019
Our industrious leader Sammy Barker is on holiday right now, but that doesn't mean our longest running feature is taking a break. After a quiet few weeks, we're starting to see some cool games emerging. Here's what we're up to this weekend. Robert Ramsey, Deputy Editor: Catherine or Katherine... Catherine or Katherine... Or Rin?...

Crash and burn
Nintendo has once again rained on Crash Bandicoot's parade. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has been pushed back to third place as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe boosts to the front of the pack in the latest physical chart. It's a quiet week yet again for PlayStation 4 software. Mortal Kombat 11 has made a giant leap up the chart from 40th to...

The sun is shining
Crikey, where did that beaming ball of fire sitting in the sky come from? It’s absolutely roasting this weekend, so there’s never been a better excuse to close the curtains and lounge around in your underpants. You might want to point an extra fan at your PS4 Pro, though – it’s going to get noisy in this weather. Sammy...
