The Swapper (PlayStation 4)

The clone wars

The world of human cloning is a scientific nightmare, and in The Swapper you'll tackle that minefield head on.

Got your back

All the way back in the hazy days of the Destiny alpha, complaints about the download's co-op based Strike mission were rife.

How The Last of Us Remastered Is Evolving PS4 Hit inFAMOUS: Second Son's Photo Mode

Make love to the camera

PlayStation 4 exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son’s photo mode may have been added as a simple post-release patch, but it’s clear that developer Sucker Punch struck gold with the feature.

Yes, you read that right

Assuming that Sony hasn’t just let a hearty halibut leak out of its typically tight fish tank, then the company looks set to have an incredible showing at GamesCom 2014 next month. As part of a nonchalant lineup list which has appeared on its official convention landing page, the company appears to have confirmed that...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Five: Wasting Inordinate Amounts of Time at the Tower

The good life

When you really stop and think about it, Destiny's hub location dubbed the Tower is a beautiful thing. In a game where essentially all you do is shoot things in the head, the Tower provides a resting place where you can enjoy some downtime between stints of slaughter. You can introduce yourself to other players, buy new equipment,...

PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Would Be Impossible on Any Other Console

Ready at Dawn fans the historical flames

Every now and then, developers creating exclusive adventures like to talk up the hardware that they’ve opted to work on.

Review: Another World (PlayStation 4)

Another World (PlayStation 4)

Back off, man. I'm a scientist

A tiny team of developers with an independent spirit and a vision of creating a game that’s inspired by classic science fiction may seem like a description of Push Square’s E3 2014 Game of the Show, but it could just as easily be applied to Another World. Yet, while Sean Murray of Hello Games talked about creating...

The heat remains utterly inescapable here in the UK, which means that plenty of skin and bad tattoos are on display. Of course, the poor Synthisters – the vampirish foes from stripping simulator Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed – have no choice but to remain covered up, as the sunlight is their one true rival in the world...

Who Would Win Wednesdays: Destiny Special

Destiny Special

Overpowered, nerf

If you haven't already noticed, Push Square has been going Destiny mad over the past week or so.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty (PlayStation 4)

Hello. Follow me

Everybody played Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee back in the day. Although the game was available on just about everything, the title’s four-fingered Mudokon was at one point just as recognisable as fellow multiformat PlayStation mascots like Lara Croft. The challenging puzzles and striking design pulled people in, while the clever,...

Resistance is feudal

A couple of titles might have decided to step down from what is shaping up to be an action packed October, but Samurai Warriors 4 is not that kind of game.
