What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 116

Overwatch and out

A bit of inside baseball: your humble host is horrible at organising WAYP every week. Despite the feature being in its 116th instalment, you could probably count on one hand the number of times this editor has contacted his team on time in order to solicit entries for the article. This time it's finally come to bite this shamed...

3rd May 2016 (North America)

Battleborn to be wild

This week's North American PlayStation Store update may merely be warming things up ahead of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's arrival next month, but there are still a handful of noteworthy additions, including heroes shooter Battleborn, grind-'em-up Push Me Pull You, and old Xbox favourite Shadow Complex Remastered. Not bad at...

3rd May 2016 (Europe)

Battletorn

There are a decent amount of new releases hitting the European PlayStation Store this week, but we're not sure if they'll be to everyone's liking - mostly because Battleborn is the one title that we'd single out as a highlight, despite there being no hype whatsoever surrounding its launch. Anyway, peruse what's up for grabs, then tell us...

Mighty No. 9 Gets Yet Another Release Date on PS4, Vita Version Gets Pushed Back Further

The saga continues

Mighty No. 9, also known as Kickstarter Mega Man: The Eternal Struggle, supposedly has a release date. The side scrolling title has been delayed approximately 18,000 times previously, so we're just hoping that this date's going to stick - but only because we're sick and tired of writing about how the game's been pushed back...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4, PlayStation Plus Freebies, Alienation

Modern warfare

A somewhat modest week here at Push Square Towers, as rumours and teasers took the place of actual announcements. The big leak centred on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which appears poised to release on the PlayStation 4.

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 115

Rain haven

The April showers are particularly unpredictable at Push Square Towers right now, which means that we have an excellent excuse not to brave the outdoors – after all, no one likes getting wet if they can help it. Fortunately, we have a solution: stay indoors and play video games until Monday prematurely arrives. Bonza! Sammy Barker,...

Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Is Looking Like the Best Game in the Series

It's an art

It's not out here in the West for quite a while yet, but Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization continues to look like the best PlayStation title that the popular property has spawned, at least, as far as we're concerned. Evolving a lot of concepts and mechanics found in the previous two titles, Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment and...

Review: Ray Gigant (PS Vita)

Ray Gigant (PS Vita)

Yorigami killer

Another dungeon crawling role-playing game from Japanese developer Experience, Ray Gigant is a good entry point to an often complex genre, boasting streamlined mechanics, an enjoyable story, and decent cast of characters. Adding to the Vita's already crowded catalogue of Japanese titles, does this tale of teenagers and colossal...

Your Free PS4 PlayStation Plus Games Include Tropico 5, Table Top Racing

God of War! LocoRoco! Bionic Commando!

Last month's PlayStation Plus update was rock solid – and Sony's assembled another decent selection for May. While some of you may be disappointed to learn that Watch Dogs isn't part of the Instant Game Collection (we told you it was fake), Tropico 5 is actually a strong substitute – namely because this...

This Slick Vita Grip Adds Triggers for Better PS4 Remote Play

Say goodbye to the rear touchpad

Veteran Japanese manufacturer Hori recently announced that it's making a new grip accessory for the PlayStation Vita, and it seems pretty darn handy. The grip adds R2, L2, R3, and L3 functionality to Sony's handheld, supposedly making it a great fit for Remote Play sessions. It looks rather comfortable, too. The...

Japanese Sales Charts: One Piece: Burning Blood Blows Away the Competition on PS4, Vita

Hoist the sales

One Piece: Burning Blood leapt to the top of the Japanese software charts last week, claiming the first and second spots on PlayStation 4 and Vita respectively. The Bandai Namco brawler only sold marginally better on Sony's home console, though, with total sales across both platforms breaking 68,000 copies. It's not a bad start by...

26th April 2016 (Europe)

Perfect organism

Alienation is the hot new addition on the European PlayStation Store this week, as Housemarque returns with its second PlayStation 4 exclusive of the generation. We rather liked this spiritual successor to Dead Nation, with our full review outlining exactly why through here. Severed's also up for grabs this time, as well as Rocket...
