Fallout 4, Superbeat Xonic, Spelunker World

Commonwealth games

There's a gaping Lara Croft shaped hole in the PlayStation 4's lineup this week – but don't worry too much, as Fallout 4 is here to keep you occupied. While we're in the thick of the holiday release season, there's actually not a whole lot launching this time – we can only imagine that publishers wanted to get out of the way...

UK Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Sells Best on PS4

Need for Speed pulls ahead on Sony's system, too

Sony's marketing partnership with Activision appears to have done the trick, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III sold best on the PlayStation 4 in the UK.

Ever Wonder Why the Classic Metal Gear Solid Theme Isn't in the Phantom Pain?

Name that tune

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a phenomenal game – which is just as well, as it could end up being the final entry in the series to benefit from the input of creator Hideo Kojima, who seems to be parting ways with Konami at the end of the year. However, as amazing as the game undoubtedly is, it is missing a vital...

Push Square's October 2015 Reviews

Not so spooky

October was one heck of a busy month for us here at Push Square. We reviewed an absolutely massive 44 titles across 31 days – which is surely some sort of record. There were big scores aplenty, as well as some big releases - but it wouldn't have been the year's spookiest month without some real horrors to go along with the good...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Seems to Have Found a Bit of Stability at the Top

And we're not talking firmware

Yes, the PlayStation 4's numbers have dropped, but not by much. Sony's latest console shifted 22,104 units last week, which is down just 800 from prior figures - not a bad result considering that the machine's been steadily slipping back to its pre-price cut sales until now. The Japanese company will probably be...

Pick Your Favourite Character with This New Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Trailer

The faces of war

As you'd expect of an Omega Force developed Warriors title, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is going to be stuffed with characters from the source material - and the game's newest English trailer shows a bunch of them off. We have to say, we're particularly liking the look of the visuals in this one, which seem to capture the feel...

We're going to need more guns

Damn, that's a pretty hefty number isn't it? Activision has revealed that Destiny now has 25 million registered users, and on average, those Guardians are spending around three hours a day with the game. Guess those daily bounties and missions are doing their job, eh? Of course, even if you've only logged into the...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Syndicate Loses Its Halo

While Black Ops III waits in the wings

It would have been an absolute catastrophe if Halo 5: Guardians failed to top the sales charts, but it did – outselling the launch numbers of Assassin's Creed Syndicate by 50 per cent. Of course, it's worth noting that Ubisoft's open world romp through London was the poorest performing entry in the property...
