PS4's Life Is Strange Breathes New Life into the Episodic Space

"I smell a mystery and some gunpowder"

While we may be seeing a wide variety of episodic story driven titles on PlayStation at the moment – from the critically acclaimed The Walking Dead to the upcoming Tales from the Borderlands – all of them are developed by Telltale Games. A new dog has stepped into the yard, however, with the announcement...

Music Management Sim BigFest Will Also Headline on PS4

Next-gen encore

We thought that PlayStation Vita music management simulation BigFest was taking an extraordinarily long time to develop – but now we know why. Sony XDev Europe has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the title – which sees you run a Glastonbury-esque festival from hiring the bands to placing the porta potties – will...

Tactical Vita Title Inner City Kids Takes Turn-Based Strategy to the Streets

Pixel perfect

Inner City Kids seems to be the quintessential PlayStation Vita game.

The gameplay itself is your typical turn-based fare. You'll be offered a...

This Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Trailer Is Not Safe for Work

You've been warned

Marvelous Entertainment’s ridiculously risqué PlayStation Vita action game Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is bouncing its way to Europe this October. The title – which is essentially a more revealing Dynasty Warriors alternative – includes a ton of characters, online multiplayer, and some of the most inappropriate outfits...

Sleeping Dogs Is Kung-Fu Kicking PS4 with All of Its DLC

No Wei

Even though it received a whopping 8/10 here at Push Square, Sleeping Dogs arrived on the PlayStation 3 as a Grand Theft Auto underdog. Following its free offering on PlayStation Plus, however, it quickly became a cult hit that many a gamer – including our staff – punched themselves for not discovering earlier. If you're one of those...

You'll Need to Find Your Sea Legs for the Darkest Assassin's Creed to Date

Ubisoft announces this year's PS3 outing

It’s a good thing that the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue doesn’t have a ship as leaky as Ubisoft, otherwise he’d be living it up in ol’ Davy Jones’ Locker right now. After months of speculation – and a morning of YouTube copyright claims – the French publisher has finally confirmed...

Stripping Sim Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed Exposes Itself on PS4 This Fall

Hot in here

The heat remains utterly inescapable here in the UK, which means that plenty of skin and bad tattoos are on display. Of course, the poor Synthisters – the vampirish foes from stripping simulator Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed – have no choice but to remain covered up, as the sunlight is their one true rival in the world...

New PS4 Title Styx: Master of Shadows Combines Stealth and Steampunk

Stealthpunk

What do you get when you mix stealth, steampunk, and a sprinkling of high fantasy? Okay, so you probably get Dishonored or Thief. But now there's a new kid on the block, in the form of PlayStation 4 title Styx: Master of Shadows. Developer Cyanide Studio recently announced the project on the PlayStation Blog, and

Vibrant Vita Brawler Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Picks a Fight with Western Territories

Girl power

There’s enough doom on Planet PlayStation Vita to keep id Software in business until the sun implodes, but that doesn’t mean that the handheld is dead yet. In fact, 5pb has quietly announced that the system’s mere days away from receiving a secret smash: pixelated punch-‘em-up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds. Originally...

OneChanbara Z2: Chaos Brings Out Its Best Bikinis on PS4

Undead and undressed

When dealing with violent zombie hordes, we’d probably want to keep our flesh covered up. Appropriate clothing is not a phrase that exists in OneChanbara Z2: Chaos’ lexicon, however, as the upcoming PlayStation 4 undead-a-thon will see you attempting to save the world in little other than a bikini top and a thong. It’s a...

Muramasa Rebirth Will Be Refreshed with Fresh DLC This Month

Another reason to return

It’s currently free for PlayStation Plus subscribers in North America, so it’s no surprise to see the announcement of new Muramasa Rebirth DLC overseas. Aksys has confirmed that a fresh add-on named ‘A Spirited Seven Nights’ Haunting’ will release on 15th July in the US and 16th July in Europe. There’s no word on...

Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star Will Be Top of the Pops This September

This guy must be "Heavy Metal"

Koei Tecmo Europe was evil last week with its obvious tease of an upcoming announcement. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait long to find out that we were right on the mark and that Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star will be seeing a physical and digital release for the PlayStation 3 in Europe on 26th September.
