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,...

Review: Doodle Kingdom (PlayStation Vita)

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...

Talking Point: What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

What One Game Do You Always Come Back To?

The one and only

Addiction is a strong word, but that's how many would describe their need to play one single game time and time again. A title that you've never really been able to put down, something that your mind always wanders back to, whether it's because you're bored and unsure of what to play, or because you simply enjoy it so much. It may...

Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation 4 and Bloodborne Slaughter the Competition 

The hunt is over

The PlayStation 4 is basking in the blood of its enemies right now, as it's managed to top the Japanese hardware charts for the fifth week in a row. A slew of big software releases have kept Sony's system in first place, although that momentum could be slowing down soon now that the big hitters have passed by. Still, Bloodborne...

You Can Pick Up Two Free Mitama in Toukiden: Kiwami Today on PS4 and Vita

Eternal freedom

Just a quick heads up: you can now download two new mitama for Toukiden: Kiwami free of charge on PlayStation 4 and Vita. The two spirits up for grabs are Ichimonji Mari, and the rather comical Oda Nobunyaga - a recurring Koei character who's essentially a feline version of feudal Japanese warlord, Nobunaga Oda. Ichimonji Mari is an...

31st March 2015 (North America)

Super mother lode

Another week, another absolutely enormous North American PlayStation Store update. The fiscal year ain't over yet we guess, so you can look forward to the likes of Axiom Verge, MLB 15 The Show, and, er, Run Sackboy! Run!. C'mon now – don't get pretending like you weren't excited for that one. PS4 Games: Axiom Verge (Cross Buy...
