What Are You Playing This Weekend? - E3 2015 Edition

All aboard the hype train

There's not an enormous amount of time for games at Push Square Towers right now, as E3 2015 preparations take centre stage. Still, with the first conference not set to kick off until late Sunday, there's plenty of time to kill. So, in customary weekend fashion, we want to know what you're playing.

Talking Point: How Can Sony Sell You on Project Morpheus at E3 2015?

How Can Sony Sell You on Project Morpheus at E3 2015?

Making virtual reality a reality

Assuming that Project Morpheus isn't delayed, it'll be on store shelves by the time that E3 2016 rolls around. This means that Sony will presumably want to start shaping the promising PlayStation 4 peripheral into a real consumer product in Los Angeles next week, and that means that it's probably going to feature...

Choo! Choo!

All aboard, all aboard – the WAYP train is about to leave the station. We've a carriage full of Push Square staffers all gagging to share their weekend gaming plans – and we've brought a few new faces along for the ride. Of course, this isn't a one-way trip – don't forget to drop your gaming agenda in the comments section below...

Cry us a Rivia

It's the end of another lively week here at Push Square Towers, which means that it's time for your regular dose of WAYP. We've been beating The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt drum pretty hard here of late, but we've got a sneaking suspicion that you'll be doing something similar in the comments section. Prove us right below. Sammy Barker,...

Talking Point: What Freebies Would You Like in June's PlayStation Plus Update?

What Freebies Would You Like in June's PlayStation Plus Update?

Take your pick

If all goes to plan, June's big PlayStation Plus update should be announced at some point next week. Indeed, the content will likely roll out on 2nd June in North America and 3rd June in Europe, so we'd expect Sony to outline the offering on this coming Wednesday or Thursday – although it has left things until the last minute in...

Are You Enjoying The Witcher 3 on PS4 as Much as We Are?

Witch will it be

We reckon that reviews are important here at Push Square – we enjoy writing them, and it's even better if they're informative enough to help you to decide whether or not you want to splash your cash on a particular game. However, as with anything, we can't guarantee that you'll enjoy, or indeed hate, a release as much as we...

Brilliance in brevity

A short but sweet edition of WAYP this week, as the bulk of the team's busy with various review assignments. Even though we're technically in the "lull" before E3, there's still tons of software deploying on the PlayStation 4 – partly due to those all-important indie titles that Sony has signed up. Will the smaller digital...

Red faced

Whoops! This author totally forgot about WAYP this week, meaning that he was forced to send an embarrassed email to the rest of the team this morning, begging for submissions. Fortunately, a handful of scribes followed through, which means our weekend feature is still yet to miss a week. This is impressive form considering how forgetful...

Blood and thunder

Issue 65, already? Blimey, the weeks just fly by, don't they? We're now approaching a couple of quiet weeks on Planet PlayStation, so there's never been a better time to put a dent into your backlog. But will it be older games padding out your itinerary this week, or are you still working through more recent releases? Here's what...

Fists of fury

Get over here! No, we're not going to play body tennis with your skull, but we're instead inviting you for a good ol' chinwag about your weekend. The great ball o' fire in the sky's shining here in sunny England, but that hasn't stopped our ragtag crew of reviewers from shutting the curtains and getting stuck into some serious gaming...

Lazy time

Another week, another edition of WAYP, another attempt at an "original" introduction. What Are You Playing This Weekend may be a popular feature here on Push Square, but by goodness, you try coming up with a new pre-amble each and every week. Perhaps we should hold some kind of competition for this – this author's fresh out of ideas...

Un oeuf of the Easter puns

We'll be resisting temptation here at Push Square Towers, keeping an eye on our waistlines as the Mini Eggs flow freely elsewhere in the office. While we may be attempting to avoid indulging our sweet tooth, however, we will be bowing to our other main guilty pleasure – games. If you're not quite sure what to play this...

Talking Point: What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

The one and only

Addiction is a strong word, but that's how many would describe their need to play one single game time and time again. A title that you've never really been able to put down, something that your mind always wanders back to, whether it's because you're bored and unsure of what to play, or because you simply enjoy it so much. It may...

Happy hunting

We suspect that this week's WAYP is going to be dominated by one title: Bloodborne. Most of us here at Push Square Towers are getting down and dirty with From Software's latest, and we suspect that things will be much the same for many of you. A word of advice for everyone: DualShock 4's are really expensive, so don't throw one at the...

Don't want this Saturday to end

2PM getting outta my bed // Tryin' to get Friday outta my head // It's all so hazy, got a little bit crazy, y'know I'd do it all again // Call everyone you know (oh my god, come over) // Turn up the radio // 'Cos this is our song, we can do no wrong, are you ready are you ready to go?
