What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 87

Take your pick

It's surely not the weekend again? The weeks seem to fly by of late – but perhaps that's because we're having so much fun. There have been tons of new releases recently, keeping our team appropriately busy. Here's everything that we're playing right now, but do chip in with your own selections in the comments section below. Robert...

Store Update: 30th September 2015 (Europe)

30th September 2015 (Europe)

Epic bail

Sony puts less effort into these European PlayStation Store update posts with each passing week – but then we suppose it is a thankless task, seeing as they're always followed by a stream of frustrating comments. Either way, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is the biggie this week. It apparently sucks. PS4 Games: Arcade Archives Moon...

Store Update: 29th September 2015 (North America)

29th September 2015 (North America)

Pull shapes

It's not the most impressive week on the North American PlayStation Store when the broken Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is the biggest highlight, but then we suppose specific audiences would shout that NBA 2K16 or Persona 4 Dancing All Night deserve the recognition. Whatever your poison, make sure you let us know in the comments section...

News: The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth Will Be Released on PS4, Vita This Year

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth Will Be Released on PS4, Vita This Year

Greedy guts

The developer of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Edmund McMillan, has today announced on his Twitter that the massive DLC called Afterbirth will launch on the PlayStation 4 and Vita at the end of the year. For those of you who have been locked in a dungeon for the past few months, this huge expansion – which could have been a sequel...

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Remains Viable As PS4 Prepares Itself for Rebirth

Calm before the storm

The PlayStation 4's taken another tumble as its Japanese price drop nears, selling through just over 4000 units. Sony's newest console should see something of a rebirth once the cut hits early next month, but it remains to be seen whether or not the price drop will have a lasting positive effect on sales without any...

News: October's PlayStation Plus Lineup Is Going to P*** People Off

October's PlayStation Plus Lineup Is Going to P*** People Off

Oh dear

Oh no! Oh no! Batten down the hatches, adopt the foetal position, and keep out of every PlayStation owner's way – because next month's PlayStation Plus update really is a bad one. There's been plenty of criticism pointed at Sony's service over the past 18 months or so, but we've always felt that there have been redeeming qualities to the...

News: Here's Why Uncharted: Golden Abyss Isn't in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

Here's Why Uncharted: Golden Abyss Isn't in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

Not quite a full collection

Uncharted: Golden Abyss wasn't included in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection because it fell too far outside of the trilogy's story arc, Naughty Dog has revealed. "It was definitely under consideration, because we were trying to see how we could collect all of the Uncharted games," community strategist Arne Meyer...

Opinion: Sony's Not Solely to Blame for PS Vita's Demise

Sony's Not Solely to Blame for PS Vita's Demise

Direct your anger elsewhere

Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida suggested this weekend that Sony won't make another handheld. Asked about the PlayStation Vita at EGX 2015, he said that the "climate" for dedicated portable platforms is not healthy right now because of the dominance of mobile gaming. This made a lot of people angry, with many...

News: One Piece: Burning Blood Localisation Confirmed for 2016

One Piece: Burning Blood Localisation Confirmed for 2016

Melting point

Announced during Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show, One Piece: Burning Blood is a brawler that features many of the crazy characters from Eiichiro Oda's popular manga. More of a traditional fighter than One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, it's definitely a project that fans should be keeping an eye on - especially since Bandai Namco has confirmed...

Push Rewind: Uncharted PS4, EGX 2015, and PlayStation Plus

Uncharted PS4, EGX 2015, and PlayStation Plus

Catching up

It's been a different kind of week here at Push Square Towers, as we've been out on the road sampling all of the gaming morsels on display at EGX 2015 this weekend. Hopefully we managed to tide you over with a hearty helping of hands-on impressions, though, from Mirror's Edge Catalyst right the way through to Ratchet & Clank. Here...

News: Don't Hold Your Breath for a New PlayStation Handheld

Don't Hold Your Breath for a New PlayStation Handheld

Climate is not healthy right now

Sony's more or less ruled out the possibility of a new portable PlayStation platform, as Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told an audience at EGX 2015 this week that the market "climate is not healthy" for dedicated handheld gaming devices right now. Quizzed by a fan on whether the PlayStation Vita could...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 86

In a hurry

Type Sammy, type! It's the eve of EGX 2015, so we're putting together WAYP abnormally early this time. Of course, you won't know that because you'll be reading this increasingly unnecessary pre-amble on Saturday. Here's everything that the team are planning to play this weekend. Alex Stinton, Reviewer: This weekend, I'll be descending...

Twitch App to Stream to PS4, PS3, and Vita This Year

Watch people play games on your games console

The stream scene has been twitching for one very important feature since the PlayStation 4's launch: a native Twitch app allowing all broadcasts to be viewed on the new-gen console. There's good news coming out of TwitchCon 2015 today, then, as it's been announced that a new client will deploy on the...

News: World of Final Fantasy Looks Super Pretty in New PS4 Screenshots

World of Final Fantasy Looks Super Pretty in New PS4 Screenshots

A world that's worth a look

World of Final Fantasy hasn't really garnered too much internet hype since it was unveiled at E3 earlier in the year, but there's no denying that it looks very, very pretty. Bringing a couple of different art styles together in order to create a varied visual experience, it's a title that comes across really well...

News: Thought-Provoking Vita Title Actual Sunlight Finally Gets a European Release Date

Thought-Provoking Vita Title Actual Sunlight Finally Gets a European Release Date

Not too long to wait, either

Actual Sunlight is a strange little game that deals with depression and other life issues. It's a thought-provoking title that we quite liked back when we reviewed it after its North American release - and now it's finally got a European launch date. If you've found yourself intrigued by this rather bleak yet...

News: Batman and The Last of Us Head Big PS4 Deals in EU PSN Sale

Batman and The Last of Us Head Big PS4 Deals in EU PSN Sale

Crash Bandicoot and Spyro also up for grabs

Bit of a weird sale, this one, as Sony's slashed the price on a load of different titles that range from the recent Batman: Arkham Knight to the retro Crash Bandicoot. Speaking of which, you can pick up the caped crusader's latest for £39.99, which isn't great, but at least there are several better...
