German Football Star Takes Amazing Action After FIFA Player Smashes PS3 Controller

Sehr gut

German international Mario Götze may have scored the winning goal for his country in the 2014 world cup final, but his luck wasn't so great on the pitch of one gamer's PlayStation 3 copy of FIFA.

The Bat is back

Warner Bros must be making an absolute killing these days.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 73

SW19

It's been a much tamer week here at Push Square Towers after the intensity of E3 2015. For starters, Robert Ramsey's taken some well deserved days off, which means that we haven't had to hear about the latest Samurai Warriors every six or so minutes. Moreover, there's been a real dearth of big news following last week's tidal wave. Let's hope...

23rd June 2015 (North America)

A surprisingly big one

The calm after the storm? Those ripples you see in the glass of water before you are not from a nearing T-Rex, but from a tidal wave of software instead. Batman: Arkham Knight is obviously the big new arrival this week, but special mentions must go to Devil May Cry 4 and PlanetSide 2, too. What are you buying? PS4 Games:...

King Kazuma

Yakuza 5 is a massive game that's going to take time to translate, but Sony hasn't forgotten that it promised to bring the release overseas. While the PlayStation 3 may be starting to feel like old news these days, we're still looking forward to continuing Kazuma Kiryu's story – even if we will have to dust off the aging machine...

What a week that was

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage. For us, it's time for a break, but for you, the next couple of weeks are going to seem decidedly drab in comparison - perhaps even boring.
