Growing pains

And thus marks the end to a clumsy week, where your humble host has messed up his elbow and pulled a muscle in his neck. The weekend brings the promise of rest and relaxation – or at least it would if we didn't have a handful of previews to write ahead of their embargo lifting next week. FML. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've barely...

The big question

A week of experimentation concludes with something very familiar – it's WAYP time. For those of you who are near – we could probably use a recap every over 100 issues – this is the article where we all come together to discuss what we're planning to play over the course of the weekend. Are you sitting comfortably? Then let's...

Just dance

It's the weekend, which means that it's time to dig out your Little Mix CD and start dancing like it's 2016. Or you could just switch on your PlayStation 4 and sit down with some games, which is what we'll be doing. Everyone's got two left feet here at Push Square Towers, y'see. Sammy Barker, Editor: I can't talk about what I'll be...

Weekend fighters

Want to know what the worst thing about the weekend is? Trying to come up with an introduction to WAYP. Y'know, this author's seriously considering concocting a copy and paste intro that can be recycled every week. For now, though, we'll simply make a passing comment about the weather – it's a bit drizzly here in the UK. Sammy...

One more time

Sorry for the late WAYP today, it's been a busy start to Saturday. Doesn't mean you can't jump aboard this train a little late, though, as we're on a one-way trip to weekend gaming heaven. Or something. To be honest with you, these introductions get harder to write every week. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've been on a bit of a walking...

Pasta master

Thinking up introductions to WAYP really is the bane of this author's week. It's immensely challenging trying to dream up new things to talk about in this space, but sadly it's part of the job. Today, your humble host is going to mention Spaghetti Bolognese, as it's something that Kell mentioned in his submission. Is there a more...

'Tubin'

What is up, guys? It's yer boy, get2sammyb, and todayyy… We've got something really exciting for you guys. To celebrate over 80 comments from you guys on last week's WAYP, guys, we've decided to pool together the Push Square guys in order to milk this feature dry for the 103rd time, guys. Remember to like, share, and subscribe once you're...

Is PlayStation Right to Switch Focus to the West?

Emigrating overseas

The humble beginnings of PlayStation are well documented: Ken Kutaragi believed that Sony should get into the console business so strongly that he began developing the firm's first format behind his employer's back. The board didn't back him, but CEO Norio Ohga saw the potential – and he sent the famously hot-headed engineer...

Gotta go fast

Despite being the weekend, your humble host has a lot to do today, so consider this edition of WAYP hastily assembled like a ploughman's sandwich without any lettuce or tomato – or pickle, for that matter. What are we even talking about? Dunno, filling space out, innit. That might be enough? Yes, it's enough. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

It's cold

Winter has arrived. No, really – the greenery of the UK has turned an icy shade of white, and we've reverted to performing star jumps in the Push Square office just to stay warm. It's been a bit of a quiet week here in the PlayStation Nation, but a deluge of new releases are about to deploy, so we may as well make the most of the down...

Triple digits

We've only gone and reached our 100th edition of WAYP – an occasion that would be worth marking if this author hadn't got in a muddle and assumed that this week's instalment was actually Issue 99. Whoops. Oh well, at least we've got a bumper article this week for you, with virtually every Push Square team member turning out in force...

Happy New Year

It may be a new year, but the same old WAYP you know and love is back for another 12 month run. With this week's edition, feel free to share some of your gaming resolutions alongside your immediate itinerary – we'd love to know what you're planning to achieve on PlayStation in 2016.

Did You Get Any PlayStation Gifts This Christmas?

Share 'em with us

It's Christmas Eve – actually, it's just gone midnight – and we don't have long to write this article, so you'll forgive us for excreting it out at the very last minute. But, we've written all of our Game of the Year stuff – keep reading the site over the coming week – and it's taken a lot of time. So, sorry this final...

What Are You Playing This... Christmas?

O come all ye gamers

'Twas the night before Christmas and all round Push Square, the team were playing Rocket League in abhorrent knitwear. Sammy was scoring goal after goal. "Stop," screamed Robert, "Or you'll be getting coal!" So we changed the game – TowerFall the choice. And we all played till Christmas in jovial voice. Sammy Barker, Editor:...

Yes, we're late

No, we will not miss a week. Sorry about the delayed article, y'all – your humble host had some holiday plans today, so we're well aware that this is hours later than it should be. But love is certainly not over, as this author has scaled to the top of the esoteric brick puzzle named life and delivered you your regularly scheduled...

Deck the fools

Apparently it's already 12th December, which means that many of you are probably just realising that you have Christmas gifts to buy and decorations to assemble. Gulp. There's still time to get all of that sorted, though, so we recommend shirking your responsibilities and sitting pretty with your PlayStation platform of choice...
