Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare PS4, PS3 Enlists for EU Christmas Sale

Scatter shot

Let’s face it: Sony’s big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative has been about as tasty as a plate full of Brussels sprouts. There have been some reasonable offers here and there, but nothing that’s going to set your trousers on fire – and this week is similar, even if there is a loophole that you may not actually be aware of...

Destiny: The Dark Below (PlayStation 4)

We can see the bottom

It seems like you can't go a single day without seeing someone criticise Destiny. Bungie's shooter has been nothing if not divisive, but for all its flaws, many still enjoy scouring the same missions and maps in the hopes of buffing up their Guardian. If you're one of these players, then it goes without saying that this...

Destiny's Progression System Is Destroying the Game from the Inside

Robert Ramsey can't take the grind any longer

Despite launching only about three months ago, it feels like we've been discussing Destiny for an eternity. Bungie's sci-fi shooter divided opinion from the word go, and, whether it's because of heightened expectations or general trust in a proven developer, we're still ranting and raving about what's...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Sales Continue Series Decline

Going down

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is arguably the best entry in the series since the original Black Ops, but not even a string of glowing reviews have managed to prevent the property from declining for the third year in a row. While the series is still a best-seller, its numbers seemingly peaked with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – and...

Don't Have Destiny's First Expansion? Then You're Locked Out of Some Existing Content

Isn't that nice

There isn't much that gets this usually calm and collected associate editor riled up, but Bungie's latest move with Destiny's The Dark Below expansion pack – which released earlier today – has everyone in the Push Square office clambering for safety from this author's outrage. Indeed, upon booting up the sci-fi shooter just...

This Trailer Shines a Light On Destiny's PlayStation Exclusive Content in The Dark Below

Argh it burns

Since its release, Destiny has divided opinions, but the fact of the matter is that a massive amount of players are still grinding through Strikes and Raids in order to snag that legendary loot, and those same users were probably happy to see Bungie's shooter make an appearance at Sony's PlayStation Experience event earlier today...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the best entry in Activision’s first-person franchise for some time, but players have reported some multiplayer connectivity mishaps since its launch last week.

Why Is Share Play Blocked in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4?

Well, er...

Either publisher Activision’s being genuine, or some poor public relations person has spent the whole day stewing, trying to find a way to spin Call of Duty: Advance Warfare’s controversial block on the PlayStation 4’s nifty Share Play feature. Whatever the case, the company has commented on its decision – and provided the...

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (PlayStation 4)

Technologic

Set around 40 years from now, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare attempts to show us a world that's more reliant on technology than ever. It's a fictional period that has its roots in reality, and it's a premise that's relatively believable. While armies and private military corporations with access to walking tanks and hulking mech suits...

All of the intel locations

No Call of Duty campaign would be complete without a bunch of intel to collect, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare doesn't buck this common trend. There are over 45 secret laptops scattered throughout the campaign, with three hidden in each of the game’s 15 chapters. Collecting half of these will net you a Bronze...

Cloud Atlas

Compared to the months of pre-release hype that Destiny received, we can’t help but feel that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is somewhat sneaking onto store shelves. The biggest gaming brand on the planet has taken a slight stumble in recent years, with the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts compounding a decline in annual sales...

Destiny's On-Disc DLC Locations Aren't Quite as Dastardly as You Might Think

Chop shop?

There's been a lot of noise made about Destiny's DLC locations, some of which can be accessed through glitching in the base game. Although there's not much to see in these environments, many players have expressed anger that they can be found in the first place, suggesting content has been taken from the title so that it can be released...
