    Review Drawn to Death

    Draw some

    Drawn to Death plays like Twisted Metal, Quake, and Street Fighter all had a big violent orgy in Screech from Saved by the Bell's ring-bound high school jotter. This raucous online-only third-person shooter is bulging with so much personality that many won't be able to see beyond the d*ck jokes and crude art direction, but what lies behind...

  • News There's One Xbox Scorpio Feature PS4 Pro Needs to Steal Soon

    Universal supersampling

    Sony's decision to allow developers to do whatever they want to with the PlayStation 4 Pro certainly has its benefits: it puts less pressure on already taxed teams and it gives studios more freedom to explore what they feel is best for their game. But there is a catch: with so many different approaches, a few games don't take...

  • Reaction Will Sony Be Scared of the Xbox Scorpio?

    Sting in the tail

    Xbox's premium console Project Scorpio has been a source of conversation ever since a 90 second trailer outed the device at E3 2016 almost 12 months ago. With manufacturer Microsoft saying very little about the system since, it's become a bit of a fan's fancy – there's been so much speculation on enthusiast forums like NeoGAF...

    She can't say anything about that, apparently

    Stefanie Joosten – the actress who lent her likeness to Quiet in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – has said that she "can't say anything about" potentially working with Hideo Kojima again.

    Precursor legacy

    You can't have a platforming renaissance without Naughty Dog's numerous Jak & Daxter titles, can you?

    Our spider-sense is tingling

    With Sony already confirmed to be Destiny 2's marketing partner this fall, and Call of Duty: WWII, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and – fingers crossed – Red Dead Redemption 2 all expected to follow, this holiday's already looking pretty stacked for the PlayStation 4.

  • News PS4 Exclusive Days Gone Is Unlikely to Saddle Up in August

    Release date probably hasn't leaked

    You know the drill by now: retailer reveals placeholder release date for anticipated PlayStation 4 game and websites go in search of SEO by spreading the most baseless of rumours. This time it's the turn of Austrian outlet GamesOnly, who have slapped a 22nd August date on Sony Bend's post-apocalyptic motorcycle...

  • Weirdness What If God of War's Kratos Was a Ballerina?

    Bound in chains

    There's something quite graceful about the manner in which God of War protagonist Kratos acrobatically swings the Blades of Chaos, but demoscene developer Plastic has a different kind of interpretive dance in mind for the delirious deity. As part of what is pretty obviously an April Fools' gag, it's swapped out the character model...

    Out of the park

    It's one of Sony's most commercially successful exclusives every single year, but we rarely give Sony San Diego's acclaimed baseball series the time of day here at Push Square. That's because we're British and are waiting for London Studio to put together Rounders The Show 17. Anyway, while we're not entirely sure whether we're going...

    Ah, the PlayStation 3. The last-gen machine launched over a decade ago in Japan, and even after the PlayStation 4 hit the market, it was still shifting units.
