Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 62

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 62

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...

Poll: What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?

What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?

Iconic pop

Those darned PlayStation Network outage articles have clearly left Sony scarred, as it's done away with the service's old logo. For the past ten or so years, it's employed the purple sphere symbol, but today's batch of firmware updates rendered the icon obsolete. You'll now find a much more contemporary circle on your PlayStation 4,...

Steins;Gate's El Psy Kongroo Edition Lets You Join the Science Club

Tuturu!

There hasn't been much word on cult hit visual novel Steins;Gate since the announcement of its PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita release. For North America and Europe, its release date is still a tentative May 2015. However, eager fans should be happy with the announcement of the El Psy Kongroo special edition, which will be exclusive to...

Well, Shanks Looks Overpowered in One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3

One armed warrior

Even hardcore One Piece fans don't know too much about Shanks, supposedly one of the property's most powerful pirates. Having lost an arm while defending protagonist Luffy as a child, he's had to make do with just one, but that hasn't stopped him from looking incredibly powerful in his One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 debut. Thinking...

Review: Toukiden: Kiwami (PlayStation Vita)

Toukiden: Kiwami (PlayStation Vita)

Demonic addiction

Toukiden: The Age of Demons attempted to fill a Monster Hunter-shaped hole on the PlayStation Vita, and it succeeded to quite an impressive degree. Accessible combat and relatively simple crafting systems made it a decent alternative to Capcom's popular action role-playing game romp, but Toukiden: Kiwami's gone one better,...

Store Update: 25th March 2015 (Europe)

25th March 2015 (Europe)

Take your pick

We want to draw attention to all of the other good stuff on the PlayStation Store this week, but let's be honest: Bloodborne's the one that's going to be getting the majority of you hot under the collar. That's not to say that there's a shortage of content elsewhere, of course, with new Life Is Strange and Game of Thrones episodes out...

Store Update: 24th March 2015 (North America)

24th March 2015 (North America)

Ship it

Phwoar, it's the end of the fiscal year, and ain't the PlayStation Store showing it. This week's North American update is bulging like an overfilled haggis, and it seems ready to explode. The highlight is, of course, Bloodborne – but let's not ignore Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Metal Slug 3, and, er, Yorbie as well. Alright,...

Minecraft Enters Orbit with Mass Effect DLC This Week

Block to the future

Minecraft's getting two new DLC packs this week on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita.

As its name suggests, this will coat...

The PlayStation Network's going to be undergoing some scheduled maintenance later today, Sony's announced. It's short notice, that's for sure, but it'll only last approximately two hours. Although having said that, the company's post also states that there may be some "additional downtime" after the maintenance is complete. Don't...
