News: Ever Wanted to Know Why You Can't Change Your PSN Name?

Ever Wanted to Know Why You Can't Change Your PSN Name?

Shawn Layden to the rescue

The inability of PlayStation Network users to change their online names is undoubtedly one of the most philosophically important dilemmas of the modern age. It feels like a strange and slightly archaic policy, whichever way you slice it. Thankfully, in a recent interview, SCEA president Shawn 'E3 Yawn' Layden explained...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 46

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 46

Everybody loves good Neighbours

We’re in the eye of the storm. Next week marks the release of the last few big holiday titles, and then it’s back to relative silence until the New Year. As such, this is another condensed issue of WAYP from our staff’s point of view – but we bet that you’ve got lots to talk about in the comments section...

Review: Tales of Hearts R (PlayStation Vita)

Tales of Hearts R (PlayStation Vita)

Pacemaker

Tales of Hearts R is an enhanced version of the popular Tales of Hearts on the Nintendo DS. Originally only released in Japan, this title represents the 11th entry in Bandai Namco’s long-running role-playing series – but does it live up to the property’s esteemed standards, and is it the type of title that famished PlayStation Vita...

Talking Point: Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Is This Gaming's Most Disappointing Ever Year?

Down for the count

If this is next-gen, then we wished that greatness would have waited until it was ready. We were going to pen this article a little later in the month – the release schedule is still stacked with several other blockbuster titles – but with the Assassin’s Creed Unity saga still a sour taste on the industry’s lips, we’ve...

Store Update: 12th November 2014 (Europe)

12th November 2014 (Europe)

Angry Murray

Costume Quest 2 has arrived just in time for Hallowe’en – on the PlayStation 3 at least. Sigh. Double Fine’s dress-‘em-up is just one of many delayed releases to deploy on the European PlayStation Store this week, with Nidhogg and Pier Solar HD also on the menu. Assassin’s Creed Unity is the obvious highlight, but this...

Store Update: 11th November 2014 (North America)

11th November 2014 (North America)

Dream weaver

Assassin’s Creed Unity isn’t exactly sneaking onto the North American PlayStation Store this week – more crashing into it like a cannon ball. Ubisoft’s latest and (not so) greatest is available now on the PlayStation 4, and it’s being flanked by spin-off Assassin’s Creed Rogue on last-gen hardware. Meanwhile, the toys are...

Review: Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! (PlayStation Vita)

Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! (PlayStation Vita)

Food poisoning

With the Senran Kagura series, developer Marvelous has already served up several saucy dishes – but PlayStation Vita exclusive Senran Kagura Bon Appétit! sprinkles a little extra spice into the bubbling broth. A rhythm game with a culinary twist, this curious cook-‘em-up sees the property’s now infamous buxom ninja babes...

Telltale's Game of Thrones Will Stay Seated for Six Episodes

Sitting comfortably

Telltale Games’ hotly anticipated episodic Game of Thrones adaptation will remain perched on the property’s iron chair for six episodes, the developer has revealed. The first instalment – dubbed ‘Iron from Ice’ – will apparently premiere soon, with more information expected to be announced during the PlayStat

Game of the Month: October 2014 - Alien: Isolation

October 2014 - Alien: Isolation

It's behind you

Here at Push Square Towers, we reviewed a mighty 38 titles in October, and, for the most part, they've given us plenty of enjoyment. 7s rained down from the gaming heavens, and there were plenty of 8s to shout about, too. Now, however, we're into the industry's busiest month, with blockbuster after blockbuster strutting onto the...

Push Rewind: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Grand Theft Auto V, Uncharted 4

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Grand Theft Auto V, Uncharted 4

Showtime

This week was all about the blockbusters, as we spent most of our time solving a global crisis in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. That wasn’t the only big game absorbing our attention over the past seven days, though, as Rockstar Games also made a series of announcements regarding the PlayStation 4 port of Grand Theft Auto V. Oh, and we...

Store Preview: Assassin's Creed Unity, LEGO Batman 3, Tales of Hearts R

Assassin's Creed Unity, LEGO Batman 3, Tales of Hearts R

Viva la revolution

... And in early November, the blockbusters did rise, and they marched onto the PlayStation Store demanding that the innocent people spend their money, with spears and other fearsome instruments poised above their heads. Ahem. Seriously, though, this is where things start to get silly – or amazing – for all three of Sony’s...

Review: The Muppets Movie Adventures (PlayStation Vita)

The Muppets Movie Adventures (PlayStation Vita)

Green around the gills

The Muppets has always been a franchise for families, so it’s not exactly surprising to see The Muppets Movie Adventures – a brand new PlayStation Vita exclusive – strive to occupy that exact same space. Sadly, in doing so, this comedic escapade ends up being a little simplistic for its own good – even if youngsters...
