Review: Football Manager Classic 2014 (PlayStation Vita)

Football Manager Classic 2014 (PlayStation Vita)

Mid-league manager

That there is a Silver Trophy in Football Manager Classic 2014 that rewards you for participating in 30 consecutive seasons – or a couple of hundred hours of play – will be no surprise to fans of the franchise, many of which will have been glued to their computers for the past decade or so. This is a series that’s universe...

Complacency Will Kill in Alien: Isolation on PS4

Familiarity breeds contempt

Aside from seemingly finally doing the movie series justice in videogame terms, Alien: Isolation is fast-shaping up to be one of the scariest games unleashed upon both this generation and last. Our very own Sammy Barker got to grips with The Creative Assembly's interpretation of Ridley Scott's interstellar dystopia last...

Football Manager Classic 2014 Will Be Scoring a Sporty Vita Bundle

And it's coming soon

If you fancy yourself a football fan, but aren't so keen on the wildly controversial exercise side of the sport, perhaps Football Manager Classic 2014 will be right up your alley. As the title suggests, this management sim will allow you to train and foster your very own team. What's more, developer Sports Interactive has...

Staying Alive in Alien: Isolation, the Tensest Title on PS4 So Far

Ripley's believe it

That we’ve already sneaked through a short sample of upcoming PlayStation 4 survival horror Alien: Isolation says a lot about the game and its developer. Knowing that it could have easily been haunted by the spectre of Gearbox’s atrocious Aliens: Colonial Marines, The Creative Assembly has instead punctured any scepticism...

Spine-Tingling Survival Horror Alien: Isolation Will Scare You Silly on 7th October

Can you outlast that long?

Games based on the Aliens franchise have had a pretty bumpy history. While some have come close to matching the atmosphere of their source material, very few have truly done the series justice. Here at Push Square we've got our fingers firmly crossed that upcoming survival horror Alien: Isolation will do just that, and...

European PlayStation Store Doesn't Escape Without a Hitch This Week

Oops, we did it again

It's been a rough old week for the PlayStation Network, with the North American PlayStation Store seeing its ordinary update delayed. However, while those of you in Europe may have been counting your lucky stars, not everything went according to plan. Indeed, those looking forward to dancing the night away with the PS Vita...

SEGA's Yakuza Series Started Life As a Gangster Inspired Gamble

Rolling the dice

While it may not get localised with much regularity anymore, the Yakuza franchise is one of the bigger brands in Japan at the time of writing. However, it took a big risk on SEGA’s part to reap those long-term rewards, as the series initially started life as little more than a good intentioned gamble on the legendary publisher’s...

Yakuza Ishin Proves Pop Rock Was Popular in Feudal Japan

Clock strikes

When the cast of SEGA’s feudal spin-off Yakuza Ishin aren’t smoking pipes or staring forlornly at the sky, they enjoy nothing more than thumbing through their Feeder records and playing air guitar. This launch trailer for the PlayStation 4 iteration of the historical outing proves as much, as it shows the cast listening intently to...

You'll Probably Want to Import Yakuza Ishin After You See These PS4 Screenshots

Ishin we could play it

If there’s one game that's absolutely crying out for a Western release, it’s feudal spin-off title Yakuza Ishin. It certainly doesn’t help that SEGA remains as coy as a medieval warlord when it comes to details regarding such an announcement. But if the prospect of engaging in a bit of historically inaccurate crime...

This Custom Yakuza Ishin PS4 Is Slightly Better Than Its Metal Gear Solid Alternative

Classy console

We’re divided over the Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes special edition PlayStation 4. While one half of Push Square towers reckons that its understated design makes it prime import fodder, the other half thinks that it all looks a touch cheap. Personally, this editor prefers Sony’s alternative Yakuza Ishin option. We should...

Sing when you're winning

Those with a penchant for long green locks and big bright eyes will be able to dance to the tune of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f on the PlayStation Vita next month, publisher SEGA has announced. The title – which is a portable version of last year’s PlayStation 3 release – will belt out a handful of synthesised hits on...

Don't Worry, You'll Be Able to Play Some of Yakuza Ishin

Japanese demo striking out soon

Anyone with an ounce of sense knows that a Japanese PlayStation Network account is virtually mandatory if you want to test out some exotic software. And while it’s still unclear whether Yakuza Ishin will actually make its way overseas, at least you’ll be able to use your abovementioned alternate login to play the...

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f Tickles Your Vita's Ivories in March

Key change

We were about to write something nice about the audio in this Hatsune Miku Project Diva f trailer, but we got put off by the Alvin and the Chipmunks-esque metalcore tune in the encore. Still, we’ll refrain from sarcastic commentary in the hope that we escape another barrage of obscenities on Twitter. You know who you are. The good...

Sonic the Hedgehog Spin Dashes PlayStation 4 in 2015

Bling ring

After a brief hiatus from PlayStation formats following an arguably ill-fated exclusivity window on Nintendo platforms, Sonic the Hedgehog looks set to sprint onto a PlayStation 4 near you in 2015. A sign supposedly on display at last week’s Nuremberg Toy Fair outlines a roadmap for SEGA’s speediest series, and suggests that an...

Two generations entwined

Whichever your preferred platform, a Western release of Yakuza Ishin is looking unlikely at this point in time. Nevertheless, with the franchise a niche favourite on these shores, we’re going to continue posting about it in the hope that SEGA sees sense and sends a localisation our way. This brand new video focuses on...
