Game of the Month: August 2014 - Metro Redux

August 2014 - Metro Redux

Tunnel of love

It's Game of the Month time once again here at Push Square, and what a busy month for games it was in August. We reviewed 27 titles in total, but PlayStation 4 port naysayers probably won't be happy with the winner of our prestigious award. Back in July, we crowned The Last of Us Remastered as the best release of the Summer month,...

Store Update: 3rd September 2014 (Europe)

3rd September 2014 (Europe)

Where the bloody hell is Minecraft PS4?

Well, it's time to take a seat and a deep breath, because we've got some bad news for all you block lovers out there. Contrary to what PlayStation France said in the early hours of the morning, Minecraft on PS4 is nowhere to be found in today's European PlayStation Store update. Still, it has to be close, and...

It's Rising Star Games' 10th Birthday, Which Means Massive Discounts in Europe

Deadly Premonition, King of Fighters, and loads of RPGs

Rising Star Games may not be the biggest and most well known studio outside of its loyal fanbase, but it may well be worth checking out its catalogue of PlayStation 3 and Vita games on the European PlayStation Store starting today. The company's sharing the joy of its 10th birthday with a...

PS4 Strategy Title Natural Doctrine's Release Date Gets Tactically Pushed Back

Too close for comfort

If you're a fan of niche Japanese titles, you've more than likely looked at the release line up this month and cried into you wallet. To help alleviate your pain, strategy RPG Natural Doctrine, which is being released for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita, has had its release date bumped back to give it...

2nd September 2014 (North America)

Can you handle the Velocity

It's another relatively big week on the North American PlayStation Store as your free PlayStation Plus games sail into view. You can now get your hands on the excellent Velocity 2X, as well as a slew of other pretty notable downloads. On top of that, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate carves its way onto all of Sony's platforms...

Chances Are That You Haven't Found Guacamelee!'s Biggest Secret Yet

But what could it be?

We absolutely loved Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition despite the fact that typing out its full title is an absolute pain in the bum. With slick platforming, satisfying combat, and a vibrant world, DrinkBox Studios' spicy adventure was great from start to finish, but what if we told you that your impressive 100%...

Review: Velocity 2X (PlayStation 4)

Velocity 2X (PlayStation 4)

2Xcellent

Since the very beginning of video game history, developers have strived to give us new and exciting ways of blowing stuff up in space. Whether it’s deadly invaders from planets unknown or chunks of asteroids, it’s all been in preparation for Velocity 2X. Strap yourself in, grab yourself a glass of tang, attempt to figure out what the...

Vita's Next Firmware Update Will Let You Watch PS4 Livestreams

Snug fit

The PS Vita's upcoming firmware update looks like it's going to be quite a substantial one. Yesterday, Sony announced that themes were coming to the handheld that would allow you to customise your backgrounds and icons, but according to the official PlayStation Blog, there's more to the next update than just that. Indeed, it looks like the...

Sony Attempts to Lure The Female Market with a Light Pink PS Vita

Here come the girls

While a splurge of new PlayStation Vita titles were announced at the pre-Tokyo Game Show conference, it's clear Sony has at least one of its eyes set on luring the female demographic to make the upgrade from the now defunct PSP. To help with this feat, it's announced the upcoming release of a special light pink and white Vita —...

Poll: What Did You Think of Sony's Pre-Tokyo Game Show Conference?

What Did You Think of Sony's Pre-Tokyo Game Show Conference?

Rate all those lovely games

Sony's pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference has come and gone, and although we hauled ourselves out of bed rather early in the morning, we're finding it hard to say that it wasn't worth it. After today's showing, we're becoming convinced that Sony has finally nailed the pacing of its pressers. The games just kept coming,...

News: A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

A Brand New Entry in the Beloved Ys Series is Coming to PS4 and Vita in 2015

Oh Ysssssss!

Ys is a funny old series. The most recent one to come out in the west was Memories of Celceta on Vita, to which we gave a very positive review, but there have been plenty of entries which missed Europe entirely. And while it remains a hopelessly niche property over here in the west, in Japan it's a major franchise. Running since 1987,...

Review: Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited (PlayStation Vita)

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited (PlayStation Vita)

On the move, dood!

When someone mentions “hardcore gaming,” your mind probably either springs towards the image of an overweight shut-in with poor hygiene and an obsession with the evils of Call of Duty or, failing that, one of those Korean chaps who inexplicably play Starcraft for six weeks straight. You probably don’t think about a cutesy...

Themes Aren't Just Coming to PS4, They're Coming to Vita, Too

Not bad

There's no doubt that the PlayStation 4 is in desperate need of some customisation options, but the PS Vita, meanwhile, is actually doing okay in that regard. The system allows you to group and move content around via its touchscreen, and you're able to set any photo that you have saved on the console as a background. Nevertheless, Sony's...

God Eater 2: Rage Burst Will, Er, Burst onto The PS4 and Vita in Japan

Everybody calm down

In the middle of a rather packed Tokyo Game Show pre-conference this morning, Sony announced that upgraded port God Eater 2: Rage Burst will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan. While it's still a little unclear how much of the game will be new, we think it's safe to assume that it will be similar to God Eater Burst,...
