Talking Point: Should Sony Ditch E3 Stage Shows Like Nintendo?

Should Sony Ditch E3 Stage Shows Like Nintendo?

A different direction

Very few people earnestly enjoy change. This author gets the jitters if Chart-Track’s weekly UK sales data isn’t ready to write about first thing on a Monday morning, and don’t even mention routine rupturing Bank Holidays. It was little wonder, then, that the web was awash with cynicism last year when Nintendo opted to...

Review: Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse - Episode 2 (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse - Episode 2 (PlayStation Network - Vita)

Be kind, rewind

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse has been made possible due to the generosity of franchise fans courtesy of a successful Kickstarter campaign. The only catch with this funding drive was that the game would be split into two episodes, with the intention to get the package into the hands of backers as quickly as possible. This...

Review: Mind Zero (PlayStation Vita)

Mind Zero (PlayStation Vita)

Never mind this one

Without a doubt, Mind Zero appears to be a genuinely high quality JRPG. It has an enticingly sleek art direction, an atypical twist on its familiar gameplay, a diverse cast of characters, and a promising story premise, so we were naturally impressed by the brainpower that must have gone into the game. But as we delved a little...

Internet Singing Sensation Performs an Encore in Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd

No one hit wonder

Even if you've never heard of Japanese virtual singing sensation Hatsune Miku, you'll have heard her without knowing it. Bringing even more catchy, rhythm action exclusively to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, she returns with her fellow digital idols in the sequel Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd.

18th June 2014 (Europe)

On your bike

Assuming that you like bikes, there’s a lot to get excited about in this week’s European PlayStation Store update. You’ll be able to pick between pedals or petrol in Tour de France 2014 and MotoGP 14, both of which will be available on the PS4 and PS3.

Relive a Classic Adventure with Another World on PS4, PS3, and Vita Next Week

A world apart

It seems that Sony systems are the new home for classic adventure games. Last week during E3 we learned that Grim Fandango, Tim Schafer's excursion into the murky world of noir, will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Vita. And now, we've been given a release date for Another World, the quirky sci-fi title that originally launched back...

17th June 2014 (North America)

Show's over

With the buzz of E3 2014 now all but over, all eyes are on the PlayStation Store – and there’s quite a lot to get excited about in North America’s weekly refresh. First and foremost, you can now pre-order Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare for your platform of choice, with PlayStation-themed goodies up for grabs if you register...

PS Vita Exclusive BigFest Will Be Every Music Fan's Dream

Musical madness

Have you ever wanted to go to a summer music festival without the bad weather, mud, and terrifying lavatories? It might not match the real deal, but this year you will be able to hold your own outdoor party with PlayStation Vita exclusive BigFest. Managing a field of young hipsters will be your quest in this festival management...

Review: ZRun (PlayStation Network - Vita)

ZRun (PlayStation Network - Vita)

The running dead

The endless runner and the zombie are seemingly at opposite ends of the video game spectrum. The former is reserved almost exclusively for smartphone-fuelled exercises in mediocrity, while the latter is usually deployed only in the hardest of hardcore horror games. With ZRun, Beatshapers has attempted to reconcile these two warring...

UK Sales Charts: Watch Dogs Takes the World Cup for a Walk

Blahzil

Now that E3 2014 is little more than a fading memory, it’s time to get back to business with the weekly UK sales charts report. With new releases taking a bit of a hiatus during the big show, there’s not a lot to get excited about here; Ubisoft’s hack happy escapade Watch Dogs is still on top, while 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil has...

Push Rewind: Everything You Need to Know About E3 2014

Everything You Need to Know About E3 2014

That's a wrap

And so, much to this writer’s relief and disappointment, E3 2014 is over. It’s been a show of re-releases, retreads, and some genuine surprises, but sleepless nights aside, we’d be lying if we said that we hadn’t enjoyed it. Between the drama of the big press conferences, the glimpses of upcoming releases, and unrivalled...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 29

Short and sweet

Stop the world and let us get off, because everyone at Push Square towers is pretty pooped this weekend. While the sheer excitement of E3 2014 has kept the sleepiness away, there’s no doubt that it’s taking its toll on all of us right now – and you’re probably feeling a little groggy after those late night press conferences...

Talking Point: What Does E3 2014 Tell Us About the Future of the PlayStation Vita?

What Does E3 2014 Tell Us About the Future of the PlayStation Vita?

Handheld hysteria

Ask a non-gamer to yawn through Sony’s meaty E3 2014 press conference, and they’ll probably come away with the assumption that the Japanese giant is a single console manufacturer. Much like Microsoft before it, the PlayStation 3 barely registered as a blip during its media briefing, and the PlayStation Vita only obtained a...
