There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

Even more PS4 and Vita announcements incoming

You didn’t think that Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference represented the last of the year, did you? As you should already have learned by now, the Japanese giant loves a good livestream, and, as such, it’s set to host another one on 1st September ahead of the Tokyo Game Show. This same...

Out This Week: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Nothing weedy about this week

We may still be nursing our Gamescom 2014 hangover with a packet of paracetamol, but the release calendar is not going to give us time to dawdle on the job. This is a surprisingly stacked week for all three PlayStation platforms, with no less than 11 new titles due out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive The Last of Us Remastered Endures Another Week

"We are survivors, Tess"

There’s so little change in this week’s UK sales chart that we considered skipping it entirely and digging straight into the good stuff. That wouldn’t be especially professional, though, would it? As such, here’s your weekly British best sellers report: The Last of Us Remastered is still on top. The exclusive title...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 34

Let's try something new

You wanted it, so we’re doing it: WAYPTW will now be published on a weekly basis. In order to make this work, we’re not changing the format, but we’re going to keep the actual article portion more condensed than ever before. This is simply to help us to turn these pieces around much quicker. Otherwise, it’s the same...

Gamescom 2014: BioWare Reckons You'll Be Able to Spend Over 200 Hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare Reckons You'll Be Able to Spend Over 200 Hours in Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Extinction

We hope that there are enough dragons roaming the wilderness in Dragon Age: Inquisition, because we think that you'll be killing plenty of them if you're to spend over 200 hours with the upcoming RPG. Speaking with IGN, producer Cameron Lee reckons that "a completist playthrough takes more than 200 hours," which no doubt...

Feature: How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

Keeping score

One thing that we’ve always been keen to maintain here at Push Square Towers is that our predictions always remain realistic. Every site under the sun likes to make a press conference prophecy prior to a big gaming convention – after all, the build up is a large part of the fun – but we’ve never been a fan of those misleading...

Gamescom 2014: The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The Last Guardian Still Exists, But You Won't Be Seeing It Anytime Soon

The saga continues

It wouldn't be a major videogame industry event without a Sony executive making an offhand remark about The Last Guardian. This time, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny was on hand to make sure that we know the title is still very much a part of the Japanese giant's long term strategy. "There are no new...

13th August 2014 (Europe)

Beware the Unknown

While we are busy typing like a bunch of monkeys for Gamescom, you can already get your hands on one of the event's announcements. Ready to scare you silly is the PlayStation 4 demo of P.T., a horror title that Sony (and a certain Hideo Kojima) wants you to experience yourselves rather than ruin the surprise. You can also hit the...

Store Update: 12th August 2014 (North America)

12th August 2014 (North America)

Sit back, relax, and play

New titles are being announced thick and fast this week at Gamescom, but that doesn't mean that the games of the future should overshadow the games of now. We have a fantastic offering on the North American PlayStation Store this week, including the colourful Hohokum and Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition. Let's make an...

Gamescom 2014: Assassin's Creed Rogue Looks a Heck of a Lot Like Black Flag

Assassin's Creed Rogue Looks a Heck of a Lot Like Black Flag

Glitch in the animus

With Assassin's Creed Unity stalking Paris later this year only on next-gen consoles, it's up to Assassin's Creed Rogue to fill in on the PlayStation 3. Other than some sparse gameplay details, we haven't had a good look at the last-gen stab-'em-up yet, but all that's changed thanks to an eight minute walkthrough from publisher...

Gamescom 2014: Surprise! You Can Create Your Own Outrageously Cool Dragon Ball Character in Xenoverse

Surprise! You Can Create Your Own Outrageously Cool Dragon Ball Character in Xenoverse

What does the scouter say

Remember back when we saw the original magazine scans for upcoming brawler Dragon Ball Xenoverse, and everyone was pondering about the identity of that unknown fighter in the corner of one of the screenshots? Well, if you said that he was probably some sort of custom character, then congratulations — you were spot on...

Gamescom 2014: Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Dragon Age: Inquisition Looks Remarkably Pretty in These New Trailers

Nobody expects the Dragon Age: Inquisition

EA started its fairly lousy Gamescom conference this morning with a lengthy demo of incoming RPG Dragon Age: Inquisition. Some fairly juicy details were also dropped, including the news that the game features nine classes, with more than 20 specialisations, as well as over 200 weapons and spells, and all...

Gamescom 2014: Lay Down the Law with Battlefield Hardline's First Single Player Footage

Lay Down the Law with Battlefield Hardline's First Single Player Footage

Shoot the guns

EA's conference at Gamescom today was a little dry, to the say the least. The perennially unpopular publisher closed out its show with a brand new single player trailer for Battlefield Hardline, which you can view down below. After a hairy altercation with a particularly nasty foe, our quick witted hero Nick Mendoza finds himself...

Gamescom 2014: Grow to Hate Shadow of Mordor's Villains With the Help of its Newest Trailer

Grow to Hate Shadow of Mordor's Villains With the Help of its Newest Trailer

You'll pay for this

In a somewhat surprising appearance at Sony's Gamescom 2014 press conference, upcoming Tolkien tie-in Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor shed a little bit of light on its narrative and its ruthless baddies. It's another short and sweet video regarding the upcoming action title, but we reckon it does just enough to get you interested...
