March's PlayStation Plus Freebies Will Be Announced This Week

Sony finalising details

We swear that these PlayStation Plus updates seem to come around quicker every month.

Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires

Over 9,000

This edition of Out This Week may be fashionably late again, but boy are we bringing the heat. Well, technically, we're not bringing anything – but, er, what we're trying to say is that a lot of good games are due out over the coming days. These include Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and more. It's also worth...

Interview: We Cross-Examine Danganronpa's Producer in Lightning Fast Time

We Cross-Examine Danganronpa's Producer in Lightning Fast Time

Under pressure

Interviews are something that we're trying to do more of here on Push Square. Hearing directly from the personalities behind our favourite games is always going to make for an interesting read, but unfortunately, we don't always get a lot of time. In this instance, we managed to pin down Danganronpa producer Yoshinori Terasawa just...

News: Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Continues to Look like One of Vita's Most Promising Games

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Continues to Look like One of Vita's Most Promising Games

Ultimate, if not mega

We're not going to sugar-coat it -- we're absolutely desperate for Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth to make it overseas. The Vita role-playing game, which features turn based battles and a heck of a lot of Digimon, is releasing soon in Japan, but there's been no concrete word on a Western release. Our interest's been piqued by the...

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (PlayStation Vita)

htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (PlayStation Vita)

Fly away

With a title like htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary, this latest PlayStation Vita puzzle platformer seems like a strange fit for the Western market. However, niche publisher NIS America has made its name by bringing quirky little curios overseas, and Sony's handheld is certainly a haven for the unusual. The game sees you controlling fireflies –...

Review: AeternoBlade (PlayStation Vita)

AeternoBlade (PlayStation Vita)

Aeterno punishment

If there's a checklist for revenge you'd imagine it would go something like this: Step One – dig two graves; Step Two – serve cold. In AeternoBlade – a new action platform title on the PlayStation Vita – the game's heroine, Freyja, could certainly use just such a list. Not only has her hometown just been levelled by Dark...

Celebrate PlayStation Vita's Birthday with Free Gifts in North America

Tons of deals, too

Technically, the PlayStation Vita reached toddler status over the weekend – but seeing as the folks at Sony have only just returned to the office, we'll forgive them this belated birthday gift. In order to celebrate the handheld's third anniversary in North America, the platform holder has prepared a bevy of free gifts and...

Opinion: How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

Good and bad

There's a growing sentiment among the gaming press that sites like this one are an outdated concept. Apparently, people no longer want to read a considered critique of a game – they'd rather watch a playthrough on YouTube or Twitch, with some commentary from a popular personality. It's something that's constantly on this author's...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 57

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 57

Hobnobs

It's a brief WAYP this week, as everyone at Push Square Towers is too busy actually enjoying their weekends to talk about it. This editor may have to resort to new tactics to encourage further engagement – perhaps the promise of office Hobnobs will do the job? We shall see. Sammy Barker, Editor: It's a mixture of all sorts for me this...

Review: Hyperdevotion Noire­: Goddess Black Heart (PlayStation Vita)

Hyperdevotion Noire­: Goddess Black Heart (PlayStation Vita)

PlayStation Noire

In an RPG franchise far, far away, there lived a CPU called Noire. As representative of Lastation, she didn't want to exist in the shadows of her allies anymore, and wanted to stand true as the game's main character. With hope in her heart, pure determination, and an army of generals at her command, her wish finally comes true in...

Bloody business

Turn-based title Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines finally has a Western release date -- and it's hopefully sooner than you expected.

Each family member ages rapidly, and only lives for around two years before the curse takes hold and...
