Round Up: Push Square's August 2015 Reviews

Push Square's August 2015 Reviews

Racing towards the storm

August was a busy month for everyone here at Push Square, as we pumped out a whopping 39 reviews - which is surely some sort of record. The sheer amount of new releases perhaps came as no surprise, though, seeing as we're now hurtling towards the holiday rush at speeds that we're not entirely comfortable with. Future fears...

Review: One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (PS Vita)

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 (PS Vita)

Size doesn't matter

You're almost spoiled for choice when it comes to Warriors games on the PlayStation Vita, since just about every slice of musou madness to release on home consoles over the last few years has ended up on Sony's diminutive device as well. Generally speaking, the handheld editions of these chaotic brawlers never quite live up to...

Japanese Sales Charts: Until Dawn and Dragon's Dogma Online Give Us Something to Write About

New titles boost PS4 sales

What Were the Best PlayStation Games of August 2015?

Dumb teenagers, space battles, pirates, and raptures

Time certainly flies, as evidenced by the fact that it's somehow September. Yeah, we don't understand it either, but we suppose that we have to go ahead and announce August's Game of the Month anyway. Leading steadily into the holiday rush that's about to hit Push Square Towers like a freight...

The phantom pain

Another week, another gigantic update on the North American PlayStation Store.

1st September 2015 (Europe)

The drop

Kept you waiting, huh? Oh, we've already used that one? Alright, we'll quit recycling that quote and get to the point: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is without doubt the biggest new arrival in this week's European PlayStation Store update. That should tell you a little about the magnitude of the sequel, as Mad Max, Grow Home, and Sup

Rumour: XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus May Be Crash Landing on Vita

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus May Be Crash Landing on Vita

XCOM: Release date unknown

Strategy lovers rejoice, as the ESRB has recently passed down a 'mature' rating for XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus on PlayStation Vita. The as yet unannounced game will presumably be a port of Firaxis Games' popular intergalactic strategy game. For our money, this type of title is exactly the sort of experience the system was...

UK Sales Charts: Until Dawn Spooks the Second Spot

Shock scare

Considering ten days ago virtually everyone expected Until Dawn to flop, the Supermassive Games developed schlock horror has enjoyed something of a surprise turnaround. The game entered the UK sales charts this week in second, just one spot behind Gears of War: Ultimate Edition – which is obviously both cheaper and based upon an...

Weekender girl

Everyone's favourite vocaloid vixen Hatsune Miku will be hitting some high notes on the PlayStation 4 and Vita next year, as Project Diva X struts its stuff to Sony's systems in Japan. Due out on the Japanese giant's handheld format in March 2016 and on the firm's flagship home console in Fall 2016, the title will include a new 'Live...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 82

Supersize us

Summer appears to be coming to a close, but in celebration of National Burger Day recently, we hope that there's one last BBQ on the agenda for you all. We can't think of a better way to spend the weekend than with a DualShock 4 in one hand and a hot dog in the other – who cares whether it's cloudy or not? Sammy Barker, Editor: For...

Japanese Sales Charts: Kept You Waiting, Huh?

Fortunately, there's not much to see here

Once again, there's nothing doing in the Japanese sales charts – well, unless you're fascinated by the evergreen nature of Nintendo's biggest franchises. Actually, the PlayStation 4 is proving a bit of an oddity in the East at the moment; it's not selling well by any stretch of the imagination, but it's...

PGA Tour PS4's Price Putt Down in EU PlayStation Store Sale

Cost of LEGO games also crumbled

With no release date or information attached to Sony's own Hot Shots Golf sequel, we're gagging for a good gold game on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, the recently released Rory McIlroy PGA Tour hit a bit of a bogey – but we'd happily take it for a swing at the right price. Fortunately, then, EA Sports has...
