There's a Jammie Dodger in it for you
Anyone else derive a perverse kind of pleasure from filling in surveys? Good news, then – it's that time of the year yet again where we thrust a questionnaire in front of your bemused faces and beg you to fill it in. Pretty please? With a cherry on top? Seriously, though, this survey comes from our...
Earlier this year we launched our new Push Square layout and we couldn't be happier with it. One of our goals was to better spotlight the breadth of content that we create every single day, without it obstructing general news consumption – and we reckon that we've done an excellent job. However, some regular readers commented that you'd...
Do you like what we've done to the place? Phwoar, it's pretty bloody spiffing, isn't it? For the past year we've quietly embarked on a Nathan Drake-esque adventure in search of the perfect Push Square facelift. We loved the previous layout just as much as you do, but the simple fact is that we outgrew it; we create such a variety of...
Cream of the crop
And there we have it: Game of the Year 2016 is done and dusted. As is the case every year, we pulled our entire team together to determine our top PlayStation title of the past 12 months, and while everyone had their own personal favourites, we settled upon a Top Ten that reflects the sentiment of every single one of our...
'Tis the season, after all
Psst. Take off your party hat, put down your Christmas cracker, and fall away from your family for a second: we've got something to say. It won't take long, it's only a couple of words. Ready? Happy Holidays! Yeah, that was it really. To be brutally honest, this year's passed in a flash, so it only feels like a few...
Here's what you can expect
Good ol' Game of the Year: the perfect excuse to pad out a slow period of news with pre-written articles while we stuff our faces with turkey sandwiches and all attempt to earn the Platinum Trophy in Final Fantasy XV. You may have noticed already, but our coverage is already underway, though things properly get started...
Be a bae
Look, we're know that you're busy trying to finish The Witness, but can you forget about line puzzles for five minutes, please? Our not-so intimidating overlords at Gamer Network have concocted a right stonker of a survey, and kindly asked us to gently nudge it in your general direction. We really, really need your help with this,...
If you'd have told me 12 months ago that The Last Guardian, Shenmue III, and Final Fantasy VII Remake would be real, I wouldn't have believed you. It's been a roller coaster 2015 for PlayStation fans – and that's without even mentioning Hideo Kojima's decision to partner with Sony on a new PlayStation 4 exclusive. But while the...
For the festivities
I write this on a dark and dreary Wednesday evening ten or so days before Christmas. The build-up to the festive period is always stressful here at Push Square: personal business is complemented by frantic holiday writing, as we attempt to get our Game of the Year coverage in order and tie up any loose ends before we take a day...
The final countdown
Spoilers: we picked our Game of the Year winner a couple of weeks ago. Since then, the Push Square team has been frantically writing articles in order to keep you occupied over the holidays. This year's, er, end of year coverage is going to be our best ever, with a number of our authors sharing their personal Top Five titles of...
We, along with the rest of the Push Square community, were screaming like little girls when Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced for the PlayStation 4 during Sony's jaw-dropping E3 2015 press conference. It's fitting, then, that little over two months later, the original PSone version of Final Fantasy VII has been voted as Push...
Are you red E?
Buckle up everyone, because E3 2015 is just around the corner. The biggest event in gaming comes around but once a year, and over the course of about a week, we're bombarded with news, release dates, announcements, and trailers from just about every publisher under the sun. For us here at Push Square, it's a time that we both relish...
Metal Gear developer to move into video game journalism
Loughborough, England – Push Square, the internationally recognised PlayStation publication operated by Nlife Ltd, has today announced that video game visionary Hideo Kojima will be joining its editorial team as a reviewer. Mr. Kojima is perhaps best known for his work on the critically...
Play another day
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – which is handy, because when you read this, the big day will have arrived. Before you get back to peeling potatoes and opening presents, though, we just wanted to take advantage of the season to leave you a message thanking you for all of your support in 2014. Push Square...
Play another day
The carpet of discarded wrapping paper beneath your feet and the ill-fitting party hat atop your head suggests that your Christmas is well underway. As we write this a few hours before the big day, we’ve got our fingers crossed that everything goes to plan for you and your families. However, before you get back to your roast...
Rockin' around the PS3
It’s only been Christmas for a few hours, but we suspect you’ve already witnessed a ferocious family feud over the dinner table. How do we know? Well, because it’s much the same scenario in our neck of the woods too. We never imagined that spilled gravy would lead to the equivalent of World War III. Still, while the...
Come say hello
We've just opened our forums so you can jump into discussion about which Vita game you're most looking forward to, whether Final Fantasy VIII is better than Final Fantasy IX or share your PSN ID, the Push Square forums are the ideal place to do it. We have an official introductions topic for you to tell us a little bit more about...
Meet your new friends
Whether you're a long-time Push Square reader or this is your first visit to our corner of the web, we want you to come meet a few people. We've assembled a stellar team to provide you with top notch PlayStation content, from news and reviews to features and interviews for years to come. Let's get introduced. Editorial: James...
It's 2012; the future is upon us
You didn't notice? Seriously, stop reading this article right now and find your nearest window — don't worry, we'll wait. Good, you're back. Did you notice the flying cars and newly built steel sky-scrapers on the horizon? Yeah, exactly. The future, huh? Unfortunately the future isn't quite as exciting as late 70s...
Thus concludes another bonkers day in PlayStation land, and we're sure the announcements won't stop coming as GamesCom fever takes hold over the course of the week. Sony's GamesCom press conference was, all told, a fairly muted affair with not an enormous number of huge announcements to shout about. But despite the lack of mind-shattering megatons, the platform holder did drop a number of..
Despite the anticipation being nowhere near E3, we always enjoy the muted build-up to the GamesCom press conferences
You're never going to see a megaton announcement at GamesCom, but because the anticipation is lower, those muted surprises are all the more impactful. The PlayStation 3 Slim announcement in 2009 was huge, and we'll never forget the furore surrounding Resistance 3 last year. This year..
Just a heads-up: remember to follow us on Twitter for our moment-to-moment reaction of everything announced during Sony's press conference
The show is set to start shortly, and you can catch a live-stream of the entire event through here. We're as much a part of the PlayStation community as you guys, so we want to be there with you for every shock,...
What's up, guys? I don't want to make this post unnecessarily convoluted, so I'm going to jump straight to the point
I'm sure you're all aware of the situation in Japan. I've spent the last couple of days wondering what little I can do to help, and figured that the huge stack of PS3 games situated next to my desk might hold the answer. So I've decided to auction off a small pile of older..
No seriously it is. Ok, it's not. We're writing this on a dismal Sunday afternoon sometime in early December. Consider this a message from our future-self or something. Did we even say that right? Goodness knows. All we know is that this post will get published on Christmas morning, and we do genuinely wish you all a very Merry Christmas. If you don't celebrate Christmas then have..
We've teamed up with the fine folks at EA and Mischief PR to give away three copies of Chris Ryan's Medal Of Honor novel
The book, which acts as a prequel to the Medal Of Honor video game, details the back-story of "Southern American old-boy Dusty, father-of-six Rabbit and no-nonsense soldier Voodoo" as they cross enemy lines in modern-day Afghanistan. To be in with a chance of winning..
Happy Valentines Day from the PushSquare crew
20 days later than the original specified date, I've finally hit my 2,000 trophy target
Ta very much Vancouver 2010, Dark Void and Army Of Two: The 40th Day review duty! Now I have 2,000 trophies, I feel very much the same as I did while I was sitting in the 1,900's - wishing I had the patience to replay older games just to pick-up all those...
My quest for 2,000 trophies came to a rather abrupt end shortly after my last post
See, the thing is, not only was I getting a little tired of the hunt, I'd also made contingency plans. "I'm never going to hit 2,000 with just old games," I told myself, "Need to strengthen my backlog by two games, and I'll do it easily." Of course, said two games are still stuck somewhere in the..
I promise "you are a loser" I'm closing in on a couple more platinums
Please approve. You're my lone drive now. Thanks to my addiction to Borderlands I'm practically on the verge of platinuming the game. And I now have just 90 trophies left to go to achieve my task. I feel pretty much done with Batman right now, having completed all the Riddler...
It was Christmas yesterday
I got some time in with Borderlands but otherwise, I spent the day staring blankly into space wondering why I set myself a ridiculous challenge (to hit 2,000 trophies by January 4th if you were wondering). The 23rd was spent plonked in front of Colin McRae: DiRT 2, reminding myself why I rarely go for platinums. As...
If you're reading this then you're probably stuffed full of turkey, and surrounded by a host of new Playstation content
At least, we hope you are. And in fact there's nothing much else for us to say really. From the whole team at PushSquare (and Twiggy!) we wish you a very merry Christmas. Stay tuned to the site as we countdown our Playstation top-ten.
And that means time-off. And that means we don't have to play the games the publishers want us to. And that means Sammy's going trophy hunting. Over the course of the next 2 weeks, Sammy's going to get his digital e-peen on. Stay tuned to PushSquare as he endeavours to hit over 2,000 trophies before January 4th. His...
We're done. Year numero uno of PushSquare.com is over. Sorta. While we're shutting down the computers and heading home, a backlog of our work over the entire month of December is set to appear: namely our Game Of The Year countdown which will run everyday until January 3rd. There are also some reviews popping up from time to time. And Sammy will be dropping in every now and then to update..
Hello from the local library
Yes, library. Since last night, the PushSquare office has been aflame with computer errors, crashes and viruses. This is bad news because it means we can't load up Firefox for long enough to tell you about amazing Playstation games. Boo! After many hours, braving the storms of computer code, the PushSquare technicians (i.e. Sammy) decided it was time to call in the..
Today is November 10th
That's the day that Modern Warfare 2 officially lands on store shelves. Chances are there's no one around to read this. Fact is, we aren't actually around to write it. This is being written on Sunday 8th November to inform you that, today (today being the Tuesday November 10th) we are playing Modern Warfare 2. And no, we don't intend to update the website. We intend to shoot..
We're just a month on since there was last a new member of the family in the PushSquare office
But it's time to beef up our system selection again with yesterday's launch of the PSP Go. Sadly we had to wait an extra day for our system to drop at the office but we've got our hands on the thing now and are falling in love. It's tiny, light and really very sexy to look at. So much so we assume we're..
Here at PushSquare we are supremely excited about the glut of micro-games headed to the Playstation Store entitled PSP Minis
Thus we'd love to introduce you to our second home for all PSP Minis content — the PushSquare PSP Minis portal. We don't add in new content categories here at PushSquare very often, we like to keep content compact and our...
We just wanted to let you know that PushSquare are on Twitter and we're updating all the time. Not only do you get access to all the latest PushSquare headlines, but we also tell you a little bit about what we're playing, what's coming up on the site and what's in our mailbag. You could do worse things. Like following Phillip Schofield. So why not follow us? It'll take no more than..
Welcome one and all back to PushSquare
We're sorry about the most dreadful day you've probably all had without us. As you may know, we moved hosts earlier today. As far as we can see the move has gone pretty smoothly. We're still looking at a few things we need to fix, but we're working closely with our new hosts to solve that. If you do have any queries, or you have found something broken, you..
Hey welcome back
Yup, you couldn't get on PushSquare in the past hour. We were down again. You may not be totally aware but we've been in an ongoing tussle with our hosts (they are supposed to make the site stay online) for the past few months. That means we're waving goodbye and moving home. Will that make things better? We sure hope so. We're being put massively out of pocket because of all this..
Hey, we're about to bring you that new PushSquare
We're plugging it in and hitting the switch. And that means fireworks will fly. Literally. It wouldn't be a launch if stuff didn't... well, stuff up. We think we have everything in place to make this as smooth as possible - but this is the Internet and computers and we've all been there; it's never straight forward. If you see errors, if you get..
We'll admit it, it's been hard
Last Thursday we said to ourselves, "You know what PushSquare, you're the best Playstation site on the 'Net, but you could be better." So we brainstormed. Then we brainstormed some more. We come up with all the things we liked about the site, and all the things we didn't like. Our biggest concern was with the homepage. We felt like returning visitors were..
Since PushSquare's launch in January 2009 we've covered pretty much all the big PSP and PS3 releases
But something we've been missing on is a database chock-full of Playstation content. Something which we aim to change over the coming years. "PushSquare Review Golden Oldies" is our new post heading in order to allow us entry to reviewing the wealth of PSone, PS2 and early-PS3 content. We..
We've just got done setting up a new commenting system for PushSquare this weekend
The system allows you to use your Twitter or Facebook accounts to comment on articles, entitling you to tracked commenting (with your respective avatars and profiles) without registering for a new account. Neither your Facebook nor Twitter account details will be stored on our server, it just acts as a bridge to make..
E3 2009 is over
Normality returns. And thus, we'd just like to give you some quick stats to mull over. We posted 152 articles about E3 this year. 31 of which were trailers. We Tweeted over 300 times. We had over 40,000 readers... ... And a 70% increase in subscribers. We uploaded over 100 images. We hope you had a blast. We loved every second of it. See you next year?
Sony will be hitting the stage in under an hour. We're practically bubbling with excitement. You've heard our predictions, you've heard our ideas for the perfect conference and you've probably followed Nintendo and Microsoft over the last two days. The pressure is firmly on Sony's shoulders to be abrupt, concise and decisive. And we'll be...
