Who was excited for Prototype? Quite a few people we daresay
Well those of you in the US may know all about having your hopes dashed, seeing as the game is essentially broken. Gamers popping in their shiny new Prototype discs are being told they don't have enough hard-drive space to install the game. Even when they do. An annoying "fix" has been clarified by Activision which has been..
Infinity Ward have set themselves a massive task
By creating one of the best games this generation in Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - they have to eclipse it with their sequel Modern Warfare 2. With Call Of Duty 4 selling 7,894,673,721,544,013 (note: not entirely factual) copies, and World At War bringing in a fifth of new players; Activision believe that Modern Warfare 2 is poised to sell like..
Doesn't seem like Infinity Ward are going to drop the ball in regards to a totally cinematic single-player experience for their upcoming Modern Warfare 2
The game was shown off during Microsoft's E3 press conference and showcased some really interesting snow locations. The player is shown peering over an arctic cliff, before subsequently climbing it and being lead to a shootout occuring in a..
If you feel like you haven't got enough Hero games to look forward to, you'll be pleased to know that Activision are bringing Guitar Hero to the PSP
An Activision investor call made mention of a PSP iteration of the rhythm game, which promises to feature "a drum component," according to Gamespot. There are no other details to speak of at the moment, but you can bet your top hat it'll show..
Activision have unveiled the list of artists whose music will appear on the upcoming Guitar Hero 5
There's over 80 artists on the list, 30 of which have never appeared in a music video game before. More artists will be added via DLC post release. Check out the list of artists after the jump. <em>* 3 Doors Down A Perfect Circle AFI Arctic Monkeys Attack! Attack! Band Of Horses Beastie..
There's this thing with music games
Wii Music's nursery rhymes aside, unless you like "rock" music (and all the subsequent genres attached to it) you're essentially boned. Here at PushSquare we're happy to lay claim to the fact that the closest to "rock" our library will ever extend is Fleetwood Mac and Duran Duran. So, hearing about DJ Hero is a breath of fresh air. Naturally..
We've been openly disappointed with all the recent Modern Warfare 2 trailers
But this one, oh boy(!), this one is amazing. Moulding in some flashback footage from CoD4, this is probably one of the best trailers we've seen in a while. There's a lack of gameplay footage (although there is some in there) but hey, who cares, this trailer essentially confirms another roller-coaster single player. We..
Gametrailer's have put up this crazy promo for some ridiculously melodramatic pre-E3 show they're doing (which has new Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time footage by the way) hosted by Geoff Keighley and Rose McGowan (no we don't know why either)
Alas - the thing the promo is best for is a sneaky glimpse of secondary co-host Amanda Mackay holding the new DJ Hero controller. We think anything..
Honestly, we're excited about Modern Warfare 2
But good grief Activision, do you have to keep building the hype to these 20 second teaser trailers. To be fair, they are touting that this one is a full trailer (thank God). If you're still letting Infinity Ward hype you to hell - the trailer will premiere this Sunday (May 24) during the NBA Eastern Conference Finals on TNT. Ahh - a basketball match..
Picture the scene: you've just picked up your fancy new red Ferrari-esque sports car
You're serenely speeding down the motorway before you see a red flash in your rear view mirror. Next thing you know you're in a hospital bed with severe head injuries. That's probably what happened to the guy driving the car in this Blur trailer. We hope Bizarre Creations are taking precaution not to harm anyone in..
Blur is coming to the Playstation 3 from Bizarre Creation's, the developers behind the excellent Project Gotham series
The game aims to "make racing games fun" - an interesting mandate to say the least. It's going to be a weapons based racing game. It looks ridiculous. Colour us interested.
Activision's PR company made a bit of a mess-up yesterday
A major mess in fact. They claimed that Tony Hawk Ride was going to be an XBOX 360 exclusive in the UK. It's not. It's coming out on Playstation 3, XBOX 360 and Wii. Let's never speak of this again.
Deadpool, the merc with the mouth, has been confirmed to feature in Activision's upcoming Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
Deadpool will be able to utilize swords, grenades, teleportation and pistols - essentially making him a one man army. Awesome.
The Internet erupted last week when it emerged Sony had pulled a "jerk move" over European gamers with their exclusivity of Ghostbusters in the European region
Of course it was eventually revealed that Atari no longer existed in Europe and that the game probably wasn't coming out if Sony hadn't moved quickly. Cue Microsoft pulling the plug on British gamer's hopes of playing the new Tony Hawk Ride..
GameTrailers is building up a reputation for being the place to reveal your game, well, unless you decided to stick some footage in between a basket ball game earlier last week
So in Modern Warfare 2's case - GameTrailers is the place to reveal more about your game. Apparently the trailer will feature new "scenes" from the game. No doubt it will hit a gajillion views within 11 seconds.
GameInformer are reporting that DJ Shadow, a pioneer of instrumental hip-hop, has been enlisted to help Freestyle Games with the upcoming DJ Hero
It's been announced the game will include scratching, a feature DJ Shadow believes will help the game to break open the doors of the music game. This isn't DJ Shadow's first foray into work on the Playstation 3; he produced a track for the Uncharted:..
Like it or lump it, Guitar Hero 5 is coming
And there are a couple of new tidbits for us to talk about. Firstly is the new "Band Moments" mechanic, which provides much needed reward for band members who all manage to hit a series of notes at the same time. Hurrah! Apparently of the 85 artists available more than 25 will have never been in a video game ever before. Finally, the GHMusic..
Such is this generation's obsession with packing in ridiculous space consuming controllers for every single game that comes out (*glares at the dusty PushSquare office Wii*) it was announced last night that the upcoming Tony Hawk Ride will come with a friggin' skateboard
We'd embed the trailer but it's a bit crap. You can watch it here. Alas the game will be available for PS3 and we're told that it..
Ah-hah another LinkedIn profile, another revelation
Although it's barely a revelation in this game. Guess what? Treyarch have a new Call Of Duty in development. We'd never have guessed. We actually thought they were going to give the series a rest for a while - especially now Infinity Ward have dropped their respective releases title to just plain Modern Warfare 2. But no. It's in development. It's..
As confirmed via an exclusive preview in British Playstation 3 magazine PSM3 - Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 is set to introduce swimming, as well as new vehicular based mission objectives
One mission will take place whilst scuba diving, another aboard a helicopter with a further objective taking place on an oil tanker. It's also confirmed that one mission will take place in Rio De Janeiro. The..
Here is your very first look at Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2
The full thing? Well that gets revealed on May 24th in the Eastern Conference Finals — what they are, we haven't a clue. Hey, we're British yo!
Speaking on the latest episode of Geoff Keighley's the Bonus Round, Andy McNamara, the editor of Game Informer magazine - who have the first look at Modern Warfare 2 this month - claimed that Infinity Ward went an "extra 100 miles" with Modern Warfare 2
When prompted by Keighley if Modern Warfare was going to biggest entertainment event of the year, McNamara claimed:"I think it's very, very..
This is the intro to the upcoming Prototype, an ostentatious open-world affair where you practically have all the powers of a small army
Needless to say it looks quite good. And this intro is no exception; it's awesome.
Bizarre Creations are a company with a pretty good portfolio, having worked on a number of games in the Project Gotham series over on the XBOX
They no longer work for Microsoft, and instead have a publishing deal with Activision where they intend to create a new racing series titled Blur.From a business perspective, we are targeting Blur to do for racing what Call of Duty did for shooters,..
Well it only felt like an hour ago we were posting rumours about DJ Hero (it was under an hour ago - Ed). But now it's all official. As are Band Hero and Guitar Hero 5. Activision claim the games will "redefine the company's popular music gaming platform" and "transform the way consumers enjoy and engage with music." While we are really optimistic about DJ Hero - because it..
If this is indeed the real, legit DJ Hero controller - damn, we might have to eat every word we've said about Guitar Hero and Rock Band. If those lousy excuses for games paved the way for this then we'll have no option but to eat humble pie and accept those products for what they are. If you take the Guitar Hero concept, replace bad music with good music and actually implement a cool..
Prototype looks pretty cool, but if we're worried about anything, it's the mission variety
We're worried this game will get pretty repetitive, fast. This trailer has done little to quell our concerns, but we have to admit, all the objectives (stealth aside) look pretty fun, mainly because of the protagonist's abilities. It's going to be interesting playing this game for the first time.
We're going to say it now because we want to be absolutely clear about such matters
We really, really, really hate the Michael Bay Transformers movie. At first we were sceptical, then we were sucked in by the hype, now we hate it. We're original Transformers fans - we like our robots with personality and our human characters kept to a minimum. We also don't appreciate Shia LaBeouf's terrible..
Infinity Ward are making a new game
You may have heard about it. It's called Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Given the success of previous games in the franchise, Activision reckon this game could be the "biggest selling video game of all time", as stated by brand manager Simon Wells. It's interesting that they should drop both the familiar title (Call Of Duty) and acronym (CoD) and still..
Embedded above is the first trailer for Infinity Ward's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Rather swish it is too, using clever use of sound to depict a raid on, what appears to be, an airport security line. Sadly no gameplay footage or storyline details, but there is a date for your diary. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be released on November 10th in the US, and while there is no firm date for..
