We Cross-Examine Danganronpa's Producer in Lightning Fast Time

Under pressure

Interviews are something that we're trying to do more of here on Push Square. Hearing directly from the personalities behind our favourite games is always going to make for an interesting read, but unfortunately, we don't always get a lot of time.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Continues to Look like One of Vita's Most Promising Games

Ultimate, if not mega

We're not going to sugar-coat it -- we're absolutely desperate for Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth to make it overseas. The Vita role-playing game, which features turn based battles and a heck of a lot of Digimon, is releasing soon in Japan, but there's been no concrete word on a Western release. Our interest's been piqued by the...

htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (PlayStation Vita)

Fly away

With a title like htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary, this latest PlayStation Vita puzzle platformer seems like a strange fit for the Western market. However, niche publisher NIS America has made its name by bringing quirky little curios overseas, and Sony's handheld is certainly a haven for the unusual.

AeternoBlade (PlayStation Vita)

Aeterno punishment

If there's a checklist for revenge you'd imagine it would go something like this: Step One – dig two graves; Step Two – serve cold. In AeternoBlade – a new action platform title on the PlayStation Vita – the game's heroine, Freyja, could certainly use just such a list. Not only has her hometown just been levelled by Dark...

Opinion: How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

How Reviews Can Colour a Game's Reception

Good and bad

There's a growing sentiment among the gaming press that sites like this one are an outdated concept. Apparently, people no longer want to read a considered critique of a game – they'd rather watch a playthrough on YouTube or Twitch, with some commentary from a popular personality. It's something that's constantly on this author's...
