Farming Simulator 15 on PS4, PS3 Looks Udderly Essential

More than meats the eye

Manure so demanding. Every time new information on Farming Simulator 15 crops up, the thresher's on for us to come up with a new set of gags. The problem is that we just don't have anything gnu – all of our best puns have already been put out to pasture. To be honest, we feel like we're just milking things now, so we're...

Corn You Believe It? Farming Simulator 15 Ploughs PS4, PS3 in May

They see me rollin', they hay-tin'

Farming Simulator 15, the most popular game on Push Square barn none – seriously, internal statistics show that you're all somewhat agriculturally inclined – will sow its seeds on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 from 19th May. The husbandry hit was revealed for Sony's systems last year, but a

Vampyr Is an RPG from the Studio That Brought You Remember Me

Fangs very much

French developer DONTNOD is pretty busy these days, isn't it? With episodic adventure Life is Strange still in the works, the studio has revealed another project in the form of Vampyr – a horror-themed RPG. Apparently set after World War I, you'll be playing as a doctor who's bitten by a vampiric patient. The premise certainly...

Fantasy Football Sim Blood Bowl 2 Scores a Gruesome Touchdown on PS4

Pigskin pillagers

American Football is fine and dandy, but surely we can all agree that it would be orders of magnitude more exciting if it were played by bloodthirsty fantasy villains. Luckily, this oddly specific desire will soon be fulfilled, as Blood Bowl 2 – the second entry in the sporting sim franchise – will be hitting the PlayStation 4...

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (PlayStation 4)

Baker treat

Sherlock Holmes is the ultimate alpha male. He may not be particularly strong, but he has the ability to crush any man with his incredible intellect – and in Crimes and Punishments, a PlayStation 4 adventure loosely based upon Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous short stories and the BBC’s more modern adaptation, he practically revels...

Bound by Flame is the PlayStation 4's first foray into the magical land of fantasy role-playing games.

Your hex is on fire

Not so long ago, very little was known about Bound by Flame. It came like a comet, showcased by a thrilling trailer and a subsequent smattering of equally impressive screenshots, but then appeared to retreat into the shadows like a beast of folklore, only spoken of in hushed tones around midnight campfires.

It may lack the big-budget punch of DriveClub, but Canadian indie Compulsion Games’ upcoming Contrast sure seems worth your time all the same.

Farming Simulator (PlayStation 3)

Under thresher

Much like life on the land, Farming Simulator will not be for everyone. The agricultural adventure’s plodding, methodical pace is a far cry from the high-octane antics that the majority of developers tend to plant on the PlayStation 3, and as such it will demand a very determined personality to reap anything from the experience at...
