    Review Persona 5

    Steal yourself

    Persona 5 is a difficult game to review – not because of its quality or lack thereof, but because it's such an intricate release. It's a role-playing title made up of many different parts, and explaining each and every one of them in detail would take way too long. With that in mind, we'll try to be brief: Persona 5 is a Japanese...

  • Hands On Persona 5 Has Absolutely Stolen Our Hearts on PS4

    Let us start the game

    There's no point in beating around the bush: from what we've played so far, Persona 5 is utterly brilliant. We're around 20 hours in, and although we still have potentially triple that amount of playtime to go, we can't deny that we're absolutely enraptured with Atlus' latest. Even as we're sitting here right now, writing this...




  • News Persona 5 Throws Out Two More English Character Trailers

    Getting the party started

    Atlus has released not one, but two new character trailers for Persona 5, meaning that we've now almost heard what the entire Phantom Thief party sounds like in English. First up is the rather fiery Makoto, whose Persona transforms into a dangerously stylish motorbike, and she has a penchant for punching her enemies. We...

  • News Persona 5 Snatches Dual Audio on PS4, PS3 as Free DLC

    Turning Japanese

    Persona 5's been delayed. Yeah, we're disappointed, too - but at least it seems like Atlus is trying to release the very best game that it can here in the West. Case in point: the role-playing title will now feature dual audio as free downloadable content, meaning that you'll be able to play the game with either the English dub or...

  • News Persona 5 Gets Delayed Until April on PS4, PS3

    Back into the shadows

    Bah. There was a rumour earlier this week saying that Persona 5 would be slapped with a delay here in the West, but the source wasn't something that we could base a report on. Sadly, that doesn't matter anymore, because Atlus has now confirmed that the role-playing release really has been delayed in both North America and...

  • News Persona 5 Builds Social Links in New English Trailer

    Fate's a funny thing

    Ah, a lovely new Persona 5 trailer to feast ours eyes on - how thoughtful. This latest English video isn't all that detailed, but it gives a nice overview of your role as the protagonist. As with previous games in the series, you'll need to balance a normal teenage life with dungeon delving and shadow slaying; forge strong...


  • News Persona 5's Limited PS4 Steelbook Design Is Super Stylish

    As you'd expect

    Announced a while back, Persona 5 is getting a special launch edition when it releases here in the West next year. Featuring a limited steelbook case, Atlus has revealed the box's updated design - and it's every bit as stylish as you'd expect. You'll be able to get your hands on this one if you nab Persona 5 on PlayStation 4 at...

    Review Risen 3: Titan Lords - Enhanced Edition

    Still rolling with it

    Dug up from the last-gen graveyard, the PlayStation 4 version of Risen 3: Titan Lords shares one big similarity with the unnamed hero at the heart of its own story: everyone thought that they were both dead and buried. Unfortunately the similarities end there, as only one's been resurrected to sail the high seas, in a quest to...

  • News Mighty No. 9 Misfires, Delayed Until 2016

    Not so mega, man

    Mighty No. 9 will indeed say nein to its previously planned 15th September release, as Comcept has confirmed in a since pulled forum post that the Mega Man-esque escapade has been delayed. The news follows the conclusion of creator Keiji Inafune's failed Red Ash Kickstarter – we're sure there's absolutely no connec

  • Gamescom 2015 Homefront: The Revolution Raises Its Weapon to 2016

    Gun to know

    "They should really make a new Homefront game," said absolutely no one ever – but it's bloody happening anyway. After a bit of a corporate cock-up involving THQ having no money and latterly Crytek having no money, Far Cry: Brown & Grey Edition is finally due out next year under the name Homefront: The Revolution. Deep Silver, who...

  • Rumour Mighty No. 9 May Say Nein to 2015 Release

    Mighty blunder

    Wow, it's all going on. According to Game Informer, there's a strong possibility that Mighty No. 9 will miss its 15th September release date. The publication, which is owned by US outlet GameStop, understands that publisher Deep Silver and developer Comcept have indicated to retail partners that the title will not deploy until 2016,...



  • News Mighty No. 9 Will Be Cross-Buy Across PS4, PS3, and Vita

    Mega, man

    Everyone's favourite blue armoured action man, er, Beck will be taking the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita by storm in Mighty No. 9 this September – and best of all, the hotly anticipated throwback platformer will be cross-buy. This means that, irrespective of which platform you purchase it on, you'll be able to play it across...

  • News Try Metro: Redux Before You Buy on PS4

    Off the rails

    You won't even need a ticket to take a tour of 4A Games' post-apocalyptic PlayStation 4 compilation Metro: Redux, as the developer has deployed two hearty demos on the PlayStation Store today. Available in North America and Europe, the generous downloads will enable you to play the first nine chapters of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last...


  • News Risen 3: Titan Lords Aims an Anchor at the PS4

    Sailing to Sony's new-gen system in August

    Y'arr, there be a ship approaching – and it be named Risen 3: Titan Lords. The latest PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 port to occupy these pages, Piranha Bytes has announced that its piratical escapade will be getting the 'enhanced' treatment on Sony's new-gen super machine. The re-release's due out...


  • News Dead Island 2 Decayed into 2016

    Dead and buried

    The success of spiritual successor Dying Light looks to have scared off publisher Deep Silver, as Dead Island 2 -- previously due out this spring -- has been delayed into 2016. Writing as part of an extended tweet on the game's official social media profile, the studio said that it hasn't achieved its goals yet. "Right now we are...

  • News Mighty No. 9 Shoots for a Confirmed Release Date on PS4, PS3

    Vita version coming later

    Well, looks like Keiji Inafune and his team are partnering with publisher Deep Silver in order to help market and distribute upcoming crowd funded sidescroller, Mighty No. 9. The Mega Man-like title will launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on the 18th September in Europe, and the 15th September in North America, so...

  • News Metro Redux Shows a Thirst for the Apocalypse with Over 1.5 Million Copies Sold

    Take that, mutants

    A collection that contains remastered versions of both Metro: 2033 and Metro Last Light, Metro Redux is a pretty meaty package, and we'd argue one of the best shooters on the PlayStation 4. It's quite nice, then, that the post-apocalyptic romp has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. The news comes via Deep Silver, and,...

  • News Did Dying Light Scare Dead Island 2 Away?

    It's a zombie eat zombie world

    This is a strange one, isn't it? Techland, the developer behind the original Dead Island, went on to create the rather enjoyable Dying Light after departing from publisher Deep Silver. Meanwhile, the former's getting a sequel in the form of Dead Island 2, but as cleverly points out, we haven't seen or...





  • News Saints Row IV and All of Its DLC Gets Re-Elected on PS4 Next Year

    We should have known

    We were busy typing away about the rather surprising reveal of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, when suddenly, developer Volition decided to throw a slightly less shocking announcement our way. That's right, the PlayStation 4 is getting another last-gen port, and this time, it's the wacky Saints Row IV, which now comes with the...

  • News Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is Coming to PS4, and It's, Er, a Standalone Expansion Pack

    Gone when the morning comes

    Well, we didn't see that one coming. As you've no doubt heard, publisher Deep Silver released a Saints Row teaser image over Twitter earlier today, and with developer Volition hosting a panel at this year's PAX convention this evening, it seemed all but assured that the crazy sandbox franchise would be making an...

  • News Saints Row Dances with the Devil Ahead of Sequel Reveal

    Playing with the dead

    The 3rd Street Saints appear to be playing games with the dead, if a teaser image from the next title is to be believed. Sent out as both a minimalistic press release and as a Twitter post, the above image appears to show a Ouija board embellished with the Saints Row logo. Considering that the next entry in the zany series is...

    Review Risen 3: Titan Lords

    Roll with it

    For any series to make it to a third entry is quite an achievement, especially when it’s a perennial underachiever like the Risen games. After leaning heavily into the more piratical aspects for its first sequel, developer Piranha Bytes has doubled down on this approach for Risen 3: Titan Lords, letting you once again sail the high...

    Review Metro Redux

    A whole new world

    What do you get when you mix a Ukrainian developer, a best-selling Russian novel, two games, and the PlayStation 4? It’s not a trick question: we’re referring to Metro Redux, of course. 4A Games’ pair of previous generation escapades have been remastered and reworked for Sony’s latest system – and, in many ways, the...

  • Round Up Metro: Redux PS4 Reviews Celebrate in an Abandoned Subway

    Anything but dark and dreary

    Metro 2033 was one of those strange mid-tier titles that decided to avoid the PlayStation 3’s complicated architecture, releasing in early 2010 as a console exclusive for the Xbox 360. The post-apocalyptic first-person shooter – based upon the novel of the same name by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky – proved an...

  • Gamescom 2014 PS4 Sequel Dead Island 2 Enjoys Some Sunshine Slaughter

    Hot as Hell

    The original Dead Island seemed to get its head turned by that iconic debut trailer. While it was ostensibly a silly co-operative zombie slayer, said first footage gave gamers expectations that the final product could never live up to. Fortunately, the folks over at German developer Yager appear to be setting out their stall much more...

    Review Sacred 3

    Nothing is sacred

    Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, while not what you’d call a big success, still managed to garner quite a following among a certain set of gamers, even in spite of a few rough edges. Those that did end up sinking hour after hour into the action role playing game really appreciated its massive open world, extensive loot system, and huge...

  • News Watch Dead Island 2 Decay at GamesCom 2014 This Month

    Hell on Earth

    German convention GamesCom is scarily close, which means that the Push Square office is all of a flutter right now. One thing that’s improved our mood, however, is news that Dead Island 2 is set to infect the Cologne show later this month. The sequel will be playable at the expo, which actually marks the first time that local...






  • News Save Santa from the Simulation in Seasonal Saints Row IV DLC

    Yule like this one

    North American developer Volition’s silly sandbox excursion Saints Row IV is set to refresh this winter with a spot of seasonal cheer. Fans of the open world adventure will be able to rip open a new add-on from 11th December, which will detail the Saints’ attempts to save Santa Claus from a Matrix-esque simulation. Judging...

  • DLC Review Jerking Around in Saints Row IV: Enter The Dominatrix

    Strap off

    Since Saints Row: The Third, Volition's franchise has built itself up as the stupidest open world game available, constantly breaking the fourth wall, jamming popular culture references into just about every line of dialogue, and generally just being very, very self aware. Saints Row IV's first mission-based DLC comes in the form of...

    Review Killer Is Dead

    Crud on the moon

    Killer Is Dead is unashamedly stupid. Executive producer Goichi Suda – better known by his nickname Suda51 – has made a living out of his bonkers plots and premises, but the latest product to drop off Grasshopper Manufacture’s production line takes the nonsense of No More Heroes and kits it out in a straitjacket. This is a...

  • UK Sales Charts Saints Row IV Takes the Seat at the Summit

    Inauguration station

    Saints Row IV has been sworn in at the top of the UK sales charts, fending off strong competition from Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Ubisoft’s sneak-‘em-up settled its night vision goggles on second place, while pricey toy platform Disney Infinity finished in third. Isn’t it nice to be able to talk about some new games for a...

    Review Saints Row IV

    The boys are back in town

    At one point in Saints Row IV, your character, the Boss, tells series veteran Shaundi that it’s been “one helluva ride”, perhaps inadvertently summarising developer Volition’s latest title. What started out as little more than a franchise looking to piggyback on the success of Grand Theft Auto has travelled an awful...
