What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 103

'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...

Talking Point: Is PlayStation Right to Switch Focus to the West?

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.

Talking Point: Did You Get Any PlayStation Gifts This Christmas?

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...

Did PlayStation Experience 2015 Meet Your Expectations?

Fan fest

While PlayStation Experience 2015 is only just getting started for attendees, the keynote is now over. Sony used its last big show of the year to show some more Final Fantasy VII Remake, announce Ni no Kuni 2, and reveal that a lot of games are out today. It's also worth remembering that the first batch of PlayStation 2 titles will be...

Press conference appetisers

We're sure that you can forgive us the brief WAYP this week as we ready ourselves for PlayStation Experience 2015. Sony's show will be consuming most of our attention here at Push Square Towers, but we're all hoping to squeeze in the odd gaming session or two. You'll find our itinerary below. Sammy Barker, Editor: I...

Thanks for the video games

We're fast approaching our centenary issue of WAYP, which can't come soon enough seeing as we've run out of things to write in these increasingly awkward pre-ambles. It's amazing to think that we've been putting this feature together for almost three years now. In fact, it's something that your humble host would, y'know,...

Winter is coming

The celebrations of last week are long over, which means that it's back to your regularly scheduled WAYP this wintery weekend. Apart from Just Cause 3 and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, all of the big Christmas blockbusters are out now – but which ones will be holding the attention of our team over the holidays? Judging by some...

Is the Force Strong with Star Wars Battlefront on PS4?

Share an opinion, you must

Our very own Alex Stinton is currently engaged in some rather rigorous Jedi training, but he informs us that he'll be using his newfound powers to bring you a review of Star Wars Battlefront as soon as possible. In the meantime, we figured that it would be fun to gauge your opinion on the first-person shooter – after...

Feeling the fallout

A bunch of the Push Square team will be celebrating Nintendo Life's tenth anniversary this weekend, so it's a short and sweet WAYP from us. That's okay, though, because you've got acres of comments space to flesh out this article with your own gaming itinerary. Get to it. Jamie O'Neill, Reviewer: I'm revisiting Super Star Wars...

Talking Point: Should Sony Build an Elite DualShock 4 Controller for PS4?

Should Sony Build an Elite DualShock 4 Controller for PS4?

A more joyful joystick

The announcement of the Xbox One Elite controller at E3 2015 was met with furrowed brows here at Push Square Towers. It wasn't that we thought the controller looked bad – far from it – but we felt that peripherals are already outrageously priced on both new-gen consoles, so who would ever stump up $149.99 for a single...
