Review: Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Rogue Legacy (PlayStation 4)

Castle smashers

There are plenty of brutal indies that'll put your dexterity to the test on Sony platforms. The likes of Spelunky and Cloudberry Kingdom represent a somewhat niche, but addictive genre. However, Rogue Legacy, a title that blends platforming and simple combat with role-playing mechanics, is perhaps one of the most inspired that we've...

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...

23rd July 2014 (Europe)

Mass exoddus

Ever had one of those days where every single thing except the sky caving in goes wrong – and then, just to top it all off, your office chair falls to bits? Yeah, us neither – but the bit about the seat was true. So, here we are, writing the European PlayStation Store update on our hands and knees. No, there aren’t any suitable...

22nd July 2014 (North America)

Smell you later

PlayStation veterans are in for a treat this week, as Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is set to bring a funny whiff to Sony’s shiny black box. The remake of popular PSone classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee – which has forever tainted this editor’s ability to spell ‘odyssey’ – carries a premium price point at $29.99, but has...

News: PSN Offline for Some as Bungie Deploys Destiny Beta Codes for PS4

PSN Offline for Some as Bungie Deploys Destiny Beta Codes for PS4

What the heck does 'E-820001F7' mean?

We’ve been sat waiting for our Destiny beta code to appear all day, so it’s not exactly surprising that the PlayStation Network has collapsed mere moments after the first batch have gone out. Sony’s online status page notes that it’s “currently experiencing high volume and users may experience issues...

16th July 2014 (Europe)

Something good

Much like its North American counterpart, this week’s European PlayStation Store update has a nice summer feel; in other words, there’s so little on offer that you may actually be forced to head outside and enjoy the warm weather. If that’s a frightening prospect for you, there are a few worthwhile additions this week, including...

15th July 2014 (North America)

Bloodlust

We hope that you haven’t cleared your backlog yet, because there’s not a whole lot to get excited about in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. Gory twin-stick shooter Crimsonland is arguably the most noteworthy addition, while artsy sidescroller Abyss Odyssey is also up for grabs. We’re convinced that the latter...

Review: Constant C (PlayStation Network)

Constant C (PlayStation Network)

Inconsistent C

Constant C is a new puzzle platformer from International Games System. In it, you control a robot that awakes from a slumber of sorts on a space station where time has seemingly stopped. What’s the cause of this? How do you fix it? Through the course of the game, you acquire abilities that allow you to manipulate gravity in order to...

Review: The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - Cry Wolf (PlayStation Network)

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 - Cry Wolf (PlayStation Network)

Every dog has its day

So, this is it. We’ve finally made it to the end of protagonist Bigby Wolf’s investigation into the murder of a Fabletown resident that began some eight months ago. It’s been one hell of a journey, with plot twists, surprising levels of violence, and acts so unspeakable that Walt Disney would turn in his grave if he knew...

Bite me

There are a couple of unexpected additions to the European PlayStation Store this week, with both 1920s trumpet-a-thon Jazz: Trump’s Journey and ghoulish bicycle simulation Skeleton Rider pedalling onto the PlayStation Vita. Other anticipated additions include season finale

A different place

You’ll finally be entering Another World with this week’s North American PlayStation Store update, so don’t forget to stock up on sodas – and the odd strategy guide or two. Accompanying the re-release of Delphine Software’s timeless classic is whiffy puzzler MouseCraft and manga tie-in One Piece: Unlimited World Red. What...

DLC Review: Is Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn's £24.99 Complete Bundle DLC Worth the Cost?

Is Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn's £24.99 Complete Bundle DLC Worth the Cost?

Heavy metal

Let's start with the obvious: when you've just coughed up around £30 for a game only to find that there's a £24.99 DLC bundle ready and waiting on the PlayStation Store from day one, it's hard not to feel a little robbed. Sure, it's stuff that adds to the core game, but you probably haven't even had the chance to shoot down your...

Review: Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4)

Resogun: Heroes (PlayStation 4)

Holding out for a hero

It’s a statement that’s rapidly approaching cliché territory, but Housemarque’s cylindrical shooter Resogun is still the PlayStation 4’s best game. That’s not a slight against the software library that Sony’s next-gen system has amassed over the past six months or so – although we’re sure that many would like...

News: The Wolf Among Us Reveals Itself in Season Finale Next Week

The Wolf Among Us Reveals Itself in Season Finale Next Week

That's a wrap

While we pride ourselves on our biting commentary here at Push Square, this editor is unable to tell you anything about the fifth episode of The Wolf Among Us, which is set to launch on the PlayStation 3 next week. That’s primarily because this humble author still hasn’t played the second instalment, and we’re assuming that the...

2nd July 2014 (Europe)

One spicy meatball

Games bring all of the boys and girls to the PlayStation Store, and there’s plenty to look forward to as part of this week’s European refresh. We suspect that the tasty treat at the top of your wishlist will be the hard-to-type PlayStation 4 re-release Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, but the Vita version of the...

1st July 2014 (North America)

Quick, catch up

July has somehow already arrived with gusto – and Sony has deployed a brand new batch of PlayStation Store goodies to celebrate. Yes, we’re a little late with North America’s latest update, but sports organisers will insist on running the World Cup and Wimbledon at the same time. Thank heavens this only happens once every four...
