What year is it?

SEGA smashes Shenmue and Streets of Rage are set to receive special edition vinyl soundtracks this September – and just so you don't panic, you're definitely still reading this in 2015. London-based record label Data Discs will be handling the uber-limited LPs. We imagine that the firm's based in Shoreditch and only hires...

No, Shenmue III Ain't Looking for Sailors on PS4

Don't you know fakes are way uncool?

Remember the day the snow turned to rain? Yeah, sounds like a tall tale to us – a bit like this supposed Shenmue leak. The rumour appears to stem from a Japanese site, but has been picked up by some regional variants of IGN – and now we're here to tell you why it's more rubbish than Disc Four of the...

SEGA's Not Even Bothering Having a Booth at E3 2015

Shen-boo

We all love PlayStation here at Push Square Towers, but we have a soft spot for SEGA's systems of old, too. Growing up in the UK, both the Master System and the Mega Drive were arguably more popular than their Nintendo rivals – and while we'll gleefully admit that the Saturn deserved to get trounced by the PSone, the Dreamcast certainly...

This Yakuza Zero Commercial Has Got It All and More

TGI Friday

Fledgling marketing managers take note: this is how you sell a video game. Yakuza Zero's overseas advertisement may only have 15 seconds to work with, but it crams bad fashion, brutal beat downs, and Super Hang-On all into its reduced running time. If this doesn't make you want to own Kazuma Kiryu's latest, you're not human.

Alien: Isolation Stalks BAFTA Games Awards Success

Let 'er Ripley

Given that it was developed in the humble West Sussex town of Horsham, it's no surprise to see Alien: Isolation lead the charge at this year's BAFTA Games Awards. While the event always has a global presence, it tends to champion British titles above all else, and that's clear with the aforementioned survival horror scoring six...

What Do You Mean You've Never Played... Yakuza 4?

We look back at this month's PlayStation Plus freebie

Every time that we mention Yakuza 4, or indeed, the Yakuza series as a whole, there's always at least one person who chirps in and says that they've never played it – and in the worst case scenarios, that they've never even heard of it. Well, it's time to educate yourself, because Yakuza 4 is...

If you're a regular Push Square reader, then you'll know that we're massive fans of the Yakuza franchise. A drama-filled series that plays a lot like an action RPG, the games explore stories that are entwined in the underbelly of one of Japan's seediest fictional districts.

New video is NSFW

It's not often that we watch a 19-minute trailer for a game and are left gob-smacked by a mere 60 seconds of it, but that's what's happened with Yakuza Zero's latest video. As you've probably guessed from the headline, series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu will have to complete a quick-time event to properly answer a telephone, and...
