20th August 2014 (Europe)

Name's Spy, CounterSpy

It’s all espionage and beating bad guys over the head with clubs on the PlayStation 4 this week, with CounterSpy and Hotline Miami both deploying as cross-buy releases. Other new arrivals include vibrant platformer The Last Tinker: City of Colours and weedy third-person shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.

19th August 2014 (North America)

Reaper of souls

It’s a gigantic week in the PlayStation Nation, with more new arrivals than we possible have space to list in this increasingly unnecessary pre-amble paragraph. Highlights include cross-buy espionage adventure CounterSpy, hotly anticipated sequel Tales of Xillia 2, and expanded re-release Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. Let's...

Review: Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Hohokum (PlayStation 4)

Tripping the light fantastic

Whenever we played British developer Honeyslug’s latest game Hohokum at conventions and the like, our biggest issue was quite simply explaining the experience to others. What exactly is the vibrant title starring a multicoloured worm all about? Is it art? How do you play it? Heck, what do you even do? Having spent...

Rumour: Is PS2 Classic Earth Defence Force 2 Coming to the Vita?

Is PS2 Classic Earth Defence Force 2 Coming to the Vita?

Fingers crossed

The PlayStation Vita is a pretty nifty piece of tech, but it is woefully lacking when it comes to giant robots. That shouldn't be a problem for much longer, though, as a recent report from Gematsu suggests that fondly remembered PlayStation 2 title Earth Defence Force 2 will soon be ported to the handheld. What's more, it's...

Review: Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment (PlayStation Vita)

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment (PlayStation Vita)

Sleepy hollow

In an age where we have Project Morpheus lurking right around the corner, Sword Art Online, the popular Japanese anime about gamers entering a virtual gaming world, has resonated with many viewers – especially the gaming crowd. Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment makes its way onto the PlayStation Vita in the form of a third-person...

News: There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

There Are Still More PlayStation Press Conferences to Come

Even more PS4 and Vita announcements incoming

You didn’t think that Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference represented the last of the year, did you? As you should already have learned by now, the Japanese giant loves a good livestream, and, as such, it’s set to host another one on 1st September ahead of the Tokyo Game Show. This same...

Out This Week: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Diablo III, Tales of Xillia 2

Nothing weedy about this week

We may still be nursing our Gamescom 2014 hangover with a packet of paracetamol, but the release calendar is not going to give us time to dawdle on the job. This is a surprisingly stacked week for all three PlayStation platforms, with no less than 11 new titles due out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive The Last of Us Remastered Endures Another Week

"We are survivors, Tess"

There’s so little change in this week’s UK sales chart that we considered skipping it entirely and digging straight into the good stuff. That wouldn’t be especially professional, though, would it? As such, here’s your weekly British best sellers report: The Last of Us Remastered is still on top. The exclusive title...

Review: Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds (PlayStation Vita)

Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds (PlayStation Vita)

Deal breaker

Originally released last year for the Xbox 360, Phantom Breaker was a fighting game that, while never seeing a Western release, generated a decent following in Japan. Having spawned an arcade and a PlayStation 3 port, it also served as the inspiration for a 2D brawler named Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds, which, after appearing on the...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 34

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 34

Let's try something new

You wanted it, so we’re doing it: WAYPTW will now be published on a weekly basis. In order to make this work, we’re not changing the format, but we’re going to keep the actual article portion more condensed than ever before. This is simply to help us to turn these pieces around much quicker. Otherwise, it’s the same...

Review: Metrico (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Metrico (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Graph-ical grunt

Metrico is the first effort by fledgling Dutch studio Digital Dreams, but you wouldn't guess that by looking at it. Featuring incredibly striking art design, and seemingly solid gameplay, it looks like the work of a much more mature developer. But is this algebraic adventure a balanced equation, or is it using the wrong formulas?...

Feature: How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

How Many PlayStation Predictions Did We Get Correct at Gamescom 2014?

Keeping score

One thing that we’ve always been keen to maintain here at Push Square Towers is that our predictions always remain realistic. Every site under the sun likes to make a press conference prophecy prior to a big gaming convention – after all, the build up is a large part of the fun – but we’ve never been a fan of those misleading...
