Overwatch and out

A bit of inside baseball: your humble host is horrible at organising WAYP every week. Despite the feature being in its 116th instalment, you could probably count on one hand the number of times this editor has contacted his team on time in order to solicit entries for the article. This time it's finally come to bite this shamed...

Rain haven

The April showers are particularly unpredictable at Push Square Towers right now, which means that we have an excellent excuse not to brave the outdoors – after all, no one likes getting wet if they can help it. Fortunately, we have a solution: stay indoors and play video games until Monday prematurely arrives. Bonza! Sammy Barker,...

Dearly beloved

Work is well and truly over, which means that it's all video games all the time for the next two days. Well, not quite, as this author still has a handful of chores to complete – but we're not going to let that dampen the mood. In honour of the late, great Prince – it's time to party like it's 1999. Sammy Barker, Editor: I've...

Play time

It's the weekend. We're gonna play games like it's the weekend. We're gonna beat games like it's the weekend. And there may be a Platinum or two earned for good measure. Y'all know the drill by now, valued readers – here's what we're playing this weekend. Sammy Barker, Editor: I had a dreadfully tough time with the first ten or so...

Backlog busting

'Tis the week before Dark Souls III, so all round Push Square, there is much anticipation – and a little despair. Seriously, though, there's more variety in this week's WAYP than any previous editions. We have a sneaking suspicion that that won't be the case next time, so make the most of it. Sammy Barker, Editor: I blame Robert...

A mess

It's the weekend already? The Easter break has seriously confused our working week, with Saturday seemingly arriving 24 hours earlier than it should. We're not ones to complain, though, as we'll be packing our premature time off with tons of PlayStation 4 games. Below, you'll find what we're playing – but don't forget to share your plans in...

Would You Buy an Upgraded PS4K?

4King hell

A wise man once said: there are no upgraded console rumours without PlayStation 4K – or something like that. The fact of the matter is that we've heard too much about Sony's hypothetical hardware half-step for it to not resemble some semblance of truth at this point; the question is whether the Japanese giant will actually decide to...

Quit poaching our egg-cellent puns

Pass the Mini Eggs, because the Easter weekend is hare-ly underway – and we've still plenty of yolks left. Look, we know that you've probably had un oeuf of our Easter puns, but don't be a rotten egg and make us stop. Sunny side thinkin' – that's the spirit! Sammy Barker, Editor: You're not going to believe...

Hearth fire

It's the weekend, it's almost Easter, and the evenings are getting lighter all of the time: the summer is coming, folks. Alas, it's still too cold to go outside and do sociable things, so we'll be spending all of our time with our PlayStation platforms of choice. The eternal question is: what will we be playing? Sammy Barker, Editor: I...

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...
