What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 27

Here comes the sun

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet – and already this editor is acting like a classic Brit by complaining about the scorching temperature outside. It’s all shorts, flip-flops, and closed curtains here at Push Square towers, as we attempt to avoid the heat and enjoy some good old-fashioned gaming time. Regardless of the...

This little light of mine...

... I'm gonna let it shine. Oh, sorry about that, we didn't see you there. Ahem. It's time for another 'What Are You Playing This Weekend', in which the majority of the team will be delving into a little game that our very own Mat Growcott described in his review as a "painted paradise". But what does this Bank Holiday...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Easter Edition 2

Cracking good time

The long Easter weekend is upon us, which means that this editor will be spending his lie-ins hoping that Jessica Rabbit hops by with a chocolate heart. Curious fantasies aside, it’s been over a year now since we started the ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend’ series, meaning that this is the second Easter Edition that...

How Frequently Do You Want PS4 Firmware Updates?

Time for a change

Firmware updates on the PlayStation 3 were serious business. Take a gander at some of our older articles on the subject and you’ll spot more than a handful of prickly jabs pointed at people that complained about the constant need to update the console. In hindsight, it was a problem, with the system seemingly taking an age to...

Is The Last of Us Remastered Enough to Carry PS4 Until Christmas?

Something to fight for

Sony clearly intended to make a bigger splash with The Last of Us Remastered before it leaked. The platform holder admirably attempted to shrug aside the mistimed comments made by Turkish executive Sercan Sulun late last month, but it couldn’t gloss over the big gaping banner advertisement that it acc

Has Sony's Dithering Turned Off PS Vita TV's Chances?

Change the channel

As expected, Amazon broadcast its arrival into the microconsole space today. The straightforwardly named Fire TV is a miniscule set top box designed to stream media applications such as Netflix and Hulu to your television. However, in addition to being a conduit for video content, the miniscule machine can also be upgraded with...

... It started with a kiss, and now we’re up to bat. Still, this isn’t the time for Santana songs, as we’ve got another glorious edition of ‘What Are You Playing This Weekend?’ to compile. Your usual guide Katy Ellis is taking time out this week following the conclusion of her educational...

Talking Point: Should Sony Respond to Microsoft's UK Xbox One Price Cut?

Should Sony Respond to Microsoft's UK Xbox One Price Cut?

Incredible crisis

You’ve got to hand it to Microsoft, it knows how to react quickly. The Redmond-based manufacturer has been flip-flopping between Xbox One strategies faster than Usain Bolt in sandals, starting all the way back at E3 where the company controversially defended its abhorrent digital rights management policies – only to yank them...

Here at Push Square, we're all about forward-thinking, and that's exactly why we're letting you in on our gaming plans for the weekend. But in between your sudden rush to...

Saturday scares

While Valentine's Day may only be around the corner, some of our writers are more interested in scaring themselves silly than snuggling up with a romantic visual novel. Assuming that you're not too busy trying to track down roses or crying in a corner, though, do let us know which games you'll be gorging on this weekend. Go on, you...

Nevertheless, things haven't really changed much since then, as the majority of us here at Push Square towers will be once again using our weekends to start new adventures, continue old quests, and shoot stuff. Except one of our writers, who has...
