Looney Tunes Galactic Sports Sounds a Klaxon on PS Vita

Space race

Fresh from The Muppets Movie Adventures, Sony is lining up another PlayStation Vita exclusive based upon a gaggle of famous characters. Looney Tunes Galactic Sports is due out later this year on the Japanese giant's handheld system, and will bring together the likes of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Wile E. Coyote in an intergalactic...

8th April 2015 (Europe)

Calm before the carnage

Bastion, Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, Tower of Guns – it's raining good indie games. There are no retail releases available as part of this week's European PlayStation Store update – well, unless you ignore the PlayStation 3 version of RIDE – but there's enough good stuff elsewhere to tide you over until Mortal...

GUNS UP! Holsters Its Weapons on PS3, PS Vita

Now a PS4 exclusive

Free-to-play strategy game GUNS UP! has laid down arms on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, opting for PlayStation 4 exclusivity instead. The news – which is going to make our lives much easier from a database management perspective – has prompted some disappointment among handheld fans, but the developer states that...

7th April 2015 (North America)

Tower of titles

This North American PlayStation Store update may be a little light in the add-ons area, but it's certainly not wanting for new software. Bastion, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones are all headline additions this week – but they're joined by various other curios, such as Monster Bag and

UK Sales Charts: Bloodborne Keeps Dark Souls II at Bay

Battlefield Hardline above both

Bloodborne managed to hold its own fairly well over the Easter holidays, slipping down to third in the cumulative UK sales charts, but remaining the best-selling individual game across all formats. Combined SKUs pegged Battlefield Hardline at the top, while Grand Theft Auto V finished second. All three ended ahead of...

Review: Run Sackboy! Run! (PlayStation Vita)

Run Sackboy! Run! (PlayStation Vita)

Sack race

Ah, the endless runner: a sub-genre almost as ubiquitous in the promotional game space as the everyday Puzzle & Dragons knock-off. Unfortunately for developer Firesprite – a UK studio made up of ex-WipEout veterans – the awkwardly punctuated Run Sackboy! Run! doesn't possess quite the same originality as the parent property that...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Easter Edition 3

Un oeuf of the Easter puns

We'll be resisting temptation here at Push Square Towers, keeping an eye on our waistlines as the Mini Eggs flow freely elsewhere in the office. While we may be attempting to avoid indulging our sweet tooth, however, we will be bowing to our other main guilty pleasure – games. If you're not quite sure what to play this...

Physical PS Vita Releases Aren't Dead, Retro City Rampage DX Is Squeezing All of Its 20MB into a Box

Box clever

Assuming that your local game store even has a PlayStation Vita presence these days, if it's anything like ours, we're guessing that it looks a little like a picked over Chinese buffet, packed with scraggy, over-the-hill scraps. That's partially because the handheld's retail presence has been dwindling for some time now, as more and...

Toukiden: Kiwami's Animated Trailer Is Well Worth a Look if You're a Wannabe Slayer

Setting the scene

Many often complain about CG trailers that don't show gameplay - ourselves included - but we can forgive promotional material that really manages to convey a certain atmosphere, or sets a scene especially well. Want monster hunting on PlayStation? Look no further than Toukiden: Kiwami Enter Toukiden: Kiwami's animated trailer,...

Doodle Kingdom (PlayStation Vita)

Variety is the spice of life

If you didn't think that you had a God complex, you certainly will after a few hours with JoyBits' return to its flagship seller, the Doodle series. While Doodle Kingdom certainly upholds the traditional formula the franchise is renowned for – albeit with a fresh thematic twist – it also tries its creative hand at a...

1st April 2015 (Europe)

Second go

If you've already got the Platinum Trophy in Bloodborne like our very own Dan Carter (!!!), then you may be looking for a new challenge. Fortunately, the fine folks over at Bandai Namco have brought forward the release of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and it's part of this week's meaty PlayStation Store update. Also up for grabs...
