Log into Final Fantasy XIV Before September 10th and You May Find Lightning Moping About

Lightning strikes thrice

Journey into the realm of Eorzea before the 10th September and you may just run into a familiar face. That's right, Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning is carving her way into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn once again, as she returns for the third event of this kind. Even if you're not a fan of Lightning and her rather...

Dragon Quest Meets Dynasty Warriors in PS4's Dragon Quest Heroes

Musou for life

It seems like an eternity since we had a Dragon Quest game on a PlayStation platform, but that's all changing next year — in Japan, at least. Announced at Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show conference earlier today, Dragon Quest Heroes is a collaboration between Square Enix and Omega Force — the developer behind the Warriors games. In...

Xbox Chief's Uncharted Adoration Motivated Tomb Raider Deal

"We don't have an action adventure game of that quality"

Back when Microsoft ambiguously announced that it had secured Xbox exclusive rights to Rise of the Tomb Raider, we speculated that it may have been looking for a direct competitor to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The specifics of the deal are still shaky almost seven days later, but it...

Reaction: Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Reading between the lines

Kudos to Microsoft, it actually dropped a press conference megaton. While we’d argue that Jack Tretton’s corporate beatdown at E3 2013 was a memorable media briefing moment, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise – in fact, those are becoming rarer as the major industry players all merge into a similar entity. The fact...

Wait, Rise of the Tomb Raider Isn't Coming to PS4?

Them's the breaks

We were promised surprises at this year's Gamescom conference, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. That's right, it seems that the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider won't be making its way to the PlayStation 4 after all. During Microsoft's media briefing today it was announced that Lara Croft's latest hellish holiday...

PS4's Life Is Strange Breathes New Life into the Episodic Space

"I smell a mystery and some gunpowder"

While we may be seeing a wide variety of episodic story driven titles on PlayStation at the moment – from the critically acclaimed The Walking Dead to the upcoming Tales from the Borderlands – all of them are developed by Telltale Games. A new dog has stepped into the yard, however, with the announcement...

PS4 Sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider Is Taking Motion Capture to the Next Level

Drake beware

We thoroughly enjoyed Crystal Dynamics’ tense Tomb Raider reboot on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but in many ways it felt like an Uncharted game with a slightly smaller budget. Fortunately, the developer is pulling out all of the stops with Rise of the Tomb Raider, the release’s recently announced sequel, as it’s...

Sleeping Dogs Is Kung-Fu Kicking PS4 with All of Its DLC

No Wei

Even though it received a whopping 8/10 here at Push Square, Sleeping Dogs arrived on the PlayStation 3 as a Grand Theft Auto underdog. Following its free offering on PlayStation Plus, however, it quickly became a cult hit that many a gamer – including our staff – punched themselves for not discovering earlier. If you're one of those...

You didn’t think that upcoming compilation Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX was going to release without some kind of collector’s edition, did you? Just like the Genie out of Aladdin’s lamp, Square Enix has helped all of your dreams come true, by confirming that all copies of the forthcoming collection will come with a pin...

Final Fantasy Meets Batman with This New Play Arts Figure

Super Batmechman Ultimate

Love him or hate him, Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts character designer and regular game director Tetsuya Nomura still boasts a lot of influence when it comes to giant Japanese publisher, Square Enix. So much so, that he's designed a new Play Arts Kai Batman figure in conjunction with DC Comics. To be totally honest,...

Review: Murdered: Soul Suspect (PlayStation 4)

Murdered: Soul Suspect (PlayStation 4)

Dead to rights

Not many games actively attempt to avoid putting you in danger, but Murdered: Soul Suspect on the PlayStation 4 attempts to walk this less travelled road by having very little combat and putting you in the shoes of a ghost. This unique perspective means that you have limited influence on the physical world around you, making you feel...

Rumour: Is Sleeping Dogs Bringing Upgraded Kung Fu Fighting to the PS4?

Is Sleeping Dogs Bringing Upgraded Kung Fu Fighting to the PS4?

No Wei

If a recent listing on online UK retailer ShopTo is anything to go by, an upgraded port of Sleeping Dogs may be on the way for PlayStation 4. The online store has the title touted to launch on 21st November this year, so if it is the real deal, we'll likely be hearing about it in the coming weeks. In truth, we think the open world epic is the...
