Opinion: Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Platinum problems

Let's get one thing straight: Trophies are the least important thing when it comes to appraising a game. We'd recommend an amazing title even if it had no pots, because the act of actually playing a release is more important than the system-wide meta-game that surrounds it. Having said that, Trophies are an essential part of the...

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Becomes the Most Predictable Crossover Ever

Milk me BB one more time

Anyone else getting really tired of these LEGO games? Our understanding is that they sell exceptionally well, but gamers rag on Call of Duty's annual release schedule – when there tends to be three or four Mega Bloks-esque escapades crammed into a 12 month period. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the latest to roll out...

The New Main Characters of Dragon Quest Heroes II Are Looking Stylish

Axe more like it

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below was a great action role-playing game, but we couldn't help but feel that the title's two main characters, Luceus and Aurora, were a bit boring in comparison to the rest of the game's colourful cast. As such, it's nice to see that sequel Dragon Quest Heroes II will offer...

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Could Have the Best Battle System of the Bunch

Two brand new gameplay videos

Both Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment and Sword Art Online: Lost Song boasted decent enough combat systems - as you'd expect from titles that are predominantly about fighting monsters with swords - but they weren't perfect. The former's mix of massively multiplayer online elements, such as cooldowns and hotbars,...

News: Say Goodbye to Sony Computer Entertainment

Say Goodbye to Sony Computer Entertainment

PlayStation now operates under Sony Interactive Entertainment

This is not the news that we expected to wake up to on a chilly Tuesday morning: Sony Computer Entertainment is no more. Don't panic, PlayStation is very much alive – but the iconic organisation housing the billion dollar brand has been renamed Sony Interactive Entertainment. It's...

Sony and Square Enix Are at It Again with Dragon Quest Builders' Marketing

Another brick in the wall

Remember when Sony partnered with Square Enix to cover Shinjuku train station in Dragon Quest Heroes bubble wrap? Japanese commuters were free to pop slimes until their fingers ached, and the result was an advertising campaign worth writing about. And now, with Dragon Quest Builders launching this week in the Land of the...

UK Sales Charts: Resident Evil, Life Is Strange Mix Things Up

Rising S.T.A.R.S.

Praise the gaming gods: there's change in this week's UK sales charts. Don't get too excited, mind – there's not that much for us to write about. But while Call of Duty: Black Ops III clings onto its crown, Resident Evil Origins Collection and Life Is Strange have infiltrated the UK top ten. The former compiles Resident Evil...

Push Rewind: Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Resident Evil 0, Best PS4 Games, Digimon

Treading water

It's been another relatively dismal week here at Push Square Towers, lifted perhaps only by the bevy of big reviews that we've published. Resident Evil Zero and This War of Mine: The Little Ones both scored well, while World of Tanks was a teensy bit less successful. In terms of features, we ranked the Top 20 PlayStation 4 games to...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 102

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:...
