Round Up: What Happened During Sony's Pre-Tokyo Game Show Conference?

What Happened During Sony's Pre-Tokyo Game Show Conference?

That's a lot of PS4 and Vita games

Well, this particular author was originally dreading having to wake up at about 6AM in order to manage Push Square's livestream of Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference, but as it turns out, it was yet another solid showing from the Japanese giant. Much like Gamescom 2014, the pacing was fast and fluid, and...

Rate all those lovely games

Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference has come and gone, and although we hauled ourselves out of bed rather early in the morning, we're finding it hard to say that it wasn't worth it. After today's showing, we're becoming convinced that Sony has finally nailed the pacing of its pressers. The games just kept coming,...

Destiny is out next week as we begin racing into September. The incredibly hyped sci-fi shooter enjoyed an amazing alpha and a brilliant beta, and now it's got, er, planet view.

Chances Are That You Haven't Found Guacamelee!'s Biggest Secret Yet

But what could it be?

We absolutely loved Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition despite the fact that typing out its full title is an absolute pain in the bum. With slick platforming, satisfying combat, and a vibrant world, DrinkBox Studios' spicy adventure was great from start to finish, but what if we told you that your impressive 100%...

Pre-Ordered Destiny and CoD: Advanced Warfare? Congrats, You get an Armour Shader

Bet you're over the moon

We've all sat and watched as pre-order bonuses have gotten crazier over time, as near pointless trinkets are offered up as a way to entice us into hitting that big colourful 'add to basket' button. But what happens when you pre-order not one, but two different games before a set date? Well, mega publisher Activision has the...

Control The Tides of Battle With Bladestorm: The Hundred Year War & Nightmare on PS4

You and what army

We've heard fans voice their complaints on the forums that there aren't enough real time strategy games on the PlayStation 4, and it seems Koei Tecmo was thinking the same thing with the announcement of Bladestorm: The Hundred Year War and Nightmare. Coming before the end of 2014 in Japan, it's the sequel to the franchise that...

Get Your Hands Dirty With Yakuza Zero's PS4 Gameplay Trailer

Blast from the past

Sega was ready to tease us with more than just pictures of Yakuza Zero during Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today. Coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 during Spring 2015 in Japan, the title's set prior to the events of the first game. Staring a fresh faced Kazuma Kiryu who's working his way up the...

Dragon Quest Meets Dynasty Warriors in PS4's Dragon Quest Heroes

Musou for life

It seems like an eternity since we had a Dragon Quest game on a PlayStation platform, but that's all changing next year — in Japan, at least. Announced at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today, Dragon Quest Heroes is a collaboration between Square Enix and Omega Force — the developer behind the Warriors games. In...

Surprise! Persona 5 is Coming to PS4 After All

Plus, get a quick look at the game's cast

Ever since its initial reveal, Persona fans have been clawing at developer Atlus for a PlayStation 4 port of Persona 5. At first, the upcoming Japanese RPG was confirmed as a PS3 exclusive. Of course, that's no longer the case, as a new trailer that was shown at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference...

Push Rewind: September's PlayStation Plus Offering, More PSN Downtime, and Saints Row on PS4

September's PlayStation Plus Offering, More PSN Downtime, and Saints Row on PS4

A mixed bag

It's been a rather straightforward week here at Push Square. We've had a fair few reviews, a little bit of bad news, and a look at September's all important PlayStation Plus update. The week ahead is perhaps more important, as we gaze forward to Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference and next month's big releases, but it's always nice...

Video: Watch as We Take a Trip Back in Time to Round-Up Gamescom 2014 and Its Game of the Show

Watch as We Take a Trip Back in Time to Round-Up Gamescom 2014 and Its Game of the Show

Oh the memories

Ah, good old Gamescom 2014. Remember when it divided the gaming community because of its supposed focus on smaller games? We thought that you would. Anyway, we know that it's a bit late, but madcap Video Editor Ben Potter would still love for you to watch his typically mental round-up video. As you may remember, the newly announced...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 36

All night long

Ah, the weekend – that quiet period where real work is cancelled in favour of household chores. Assuming that you get a break from doing the cooking, cleaning, and fixing that wonky shelf in your bathroom, then you’ll probably be investing it in front of your favourite PlayStation format. Here’s what we’re going to be up to...

Phew, Dragon Age: Inquisition's Multiplayer Will Not Affect the Single Player Story

Thank the Maker

We remember the negative commotion that surrounded Mass Effect 3's co-op mode all too well, and so we were a little worried about whether or not Dragon Age: Inquisition's newly announced multiplayer would have any effect on the single player story, if only so we didn't have to wade through countless hate-filled forum posts...

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...

Talking Point: Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Is Indie Becoming a Defunct, Dirty Word?

Term worm

Indie is the video game equivalent of Marmite: a sector of the medium so divisive that it’s simultaneously culpable of both dismay and delight. The very website that you’re reading is evidence of that, but we’re not alone: scuffles and skirmishes more heated than the format wars themselves can be attributed to the increasingly...

The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 - No Going Back (PlayStation Network)

The long and winding road

Back in July, when Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Wolf Among Us wrapped up its first season, The Walking Dead was only at its halfway point – but the developer has raced to Season Two’s finale since then. As those of you that are familiar with the series will already know, this second set of episodes puts you...

Metal Slug 3 Runs and Guns Its Way onto the PS4, PS3, and Vita

Pixel perfect port

No self-respecting videogame console would be complete without at least a handful of Metal Slug ports to its name, so we're happy to report that Metal Slug 3 will be arriving on all three of Sony's super systems later this year. Recently announced on the PlayStation Blog, the bombastic port will apparently come packed with some...
