Relive a Classic Adventure with Another World on PS4, PS3, and Vita Next Week

A world apart

It seems that Sony systems are the new home for classic adventure games. Last week during E3 we learned that Grim Fandango, Tim Schafer's excursion into the murky world of noir, will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita. And now, we've been given a release date for Another World, the quirky sci-fi title that originally launched back...

Musical madness

Review: ZRun (PlayStation Network - Vita)

ZRun (PlayStation Network - Vita)

The running dead

The endless runner and the zombie are seemingly at opposite ends of the video game spectrum. The former is reserved almost exclusively for smartphone-fuelled exercises in mediocrity, while the latter is usually deployed only in the hardest of hardcore horror games. With ZRun, Beatshapers has attempted to reconcile these two warring...

UK Sales Charts: Watch Dogs Takes the World Cup for a Walk

Blahzil

Now that E3 2014 is little more than a fading memory, it’s time to get back to business with the weekly UK sales charts report. With new releases taking a bit of a hiatus during the big show, there’s not a lot to get excited about here; Ubisoft’s hack happy escapade Watch Dogs is still on top, while 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil has...

Push Rewind: Everything You Need to Know About E3 2014

Everything You Need to Know About E3 2014

That's a wrap

And so, much to this writer’s relief and disappointment, E3 2014 is over. It’s been a show of re-releases, retreads, and some genuine surprises, but sleepless nights aside, we’d be lying if we said that we hadn’t enjoyed it. Between the drama of the big press conferences, the glimpses of upcoming releases, and unrivalled...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 29

Short and sweet

Stop the world and let us get off, because everyone at Push Square towers is pretty pooped this weekend. While the sheer excitement of E3 2014 has kept the sleepiness away, there’s no doubt that it’s taking its toll on all of us right now – and you’re probably feeling a little groggy after those late night press conferences...

Talking Point: What Does E3 2014 Tell Us About the Future of the PlayStation Vita?

What Does E3 2014 Tell Us About the Future of the PlayStation Vita?

Handheld hysteria

Ask a non-gamer to yawn through Sony’s meaty E3 2014 press conference, and they’ll probably come away with the assumption that the Japanese giant is a single console manufacturer. Much like Microsoft before it, the PlayStation 3 barely registered as a blip during its media briefing, and the PlayStation Vita only obtained a...

E3 2014: Fight Alongside Your Favourite Characters in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment

Fight Alongside Your Favourite Characters in Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment

Immerse yourself

When it was announced that Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment was being released for the PS Vita this summer, the reveal lacked one major detail in particular, and that was the title's storyline. Thankfully, a new E3 trailer has materialized to try and help plug all those narrative gaps. Following the original plot in which players...

How Does the PS Vita's Lineup Look?

Not as bad as you think

Sony’s flagship portable platform may have barely received a mention during the platform holder’s E3 2014 press conference yesterday, but at least the firm hasn’t forgotten about the PlayStation Vita entirely. This brand new trailer shows off a bunch of the titles set to release on the handheld over the coming months,...

E3 2014: 90s PC Classic Grim Fandango Revamped for PS4 and Vita

90s PC Classic Grim Fandango Revamped for PS4 and Vita

Back from the dead

The good old point-and-click adventure genre has been past its sell by date for a long time, excluding the recent revival of Broken Sword. This makes obtaining these gems of yore like collecting gold dust, leaving a generation robbed of this storytelling experience. One such title, 1998 PC classic Grim Fandango, is being excavated...

E3 2014: Scoff the Last Slice in Free PS Vita Puzzler Fat Princess: Piece of Cake

Scoff the Last Slice in Free PS Vita Puzzler Fat Princess: Piece of Cake

Empty your bowels for a small fee

Fat Princess is a strange PlayStation character. Despite only appearing in a couple of titles to date, the meaty monarch is still regarded as one of the brand’s biggest mascots. Fortunately, the portly princess is about to make her debut on the PlayStation Vita, as part of a brand new match-three puzzle game...
