24th February 2015 (North America)

Scrum kitty

There's a little something for everyone on the North American PlayStation Store this week, with Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires all up for grabs. Heck, Rugby 15 has even made the roster. You do like a spot of ruggah in the US, right? PS4 Games: Dragon Ball Xenoverse ($59.99) Dragon...

Out This Week: Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires

Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires

Over 9,000

This edition of Out This Week may be fashionably late again, but boy are we bringing the heat. Well, technically, we're not bringing anything – but, er, what we're trying to say is that a lot of good games are due out over the coming days. These include Dragon Ball XenoVerse, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and more. It's also worth...

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

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. In this instance, we managed to pin down Danganronpa producer Yoshinori Terasawa just...

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

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...

Review: htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (PlayStation Vita)

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. The game sees you controlling fireflies –...

Review: AeternoBlade (PlayStation Vita)

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...

News: Celebrate PlayStation Vita's Birthday with Free Gifts in North America

Celebrate PlayStation Vita's Birthday with Free Gifts in North America

Tons of deals, too

Technically, the PlayStation Vita reached toddler status over the weekend – but seeing as the folks at Sony have only just returned to the office, we'll forgive them this belated birthday gift. In order to celebrate the handheld's third anniversary in North America, the platform holder has prepared a bevy of free gifts and...

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...

Push Rewind: The Order: 1886, PS4 Firmware Updates, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse

The Order: 1886, PS4 Firmware Updates, and Dragon Ball Xenoverse

Better late than never

Finally. After several slow weeks in the PlayStation Nation, the New Year finally feels underway. This was an action packed seven days at Push Square Towers, as we penned tons of reviews, conducted a couple of interviews, and reported on lots of interesting news. Don't worry if you missed anything, because we've compiled all...

Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 57

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 57

Hobnobs

It's a brief WAYP this week, as everyone at Push Square Towers is too busy actually enjoying their weekends to talk about it. This editor may have to resort to new tactics to encourage further engagement – perhaps the promise of office Hobnobs will do the job? We shall see. Sammy Barker, Editor: It's a mixture of all sorts for me this...

Review: Hyperdevotion Noire­: Goddess Black Heart (PlayStation Vita)

Hyperdevotion Noire­: Goddess Black Heart (PlayStation Vita)

PlayStation Noire

In an RPG franchise far, far away, there lived a CPU called Noire. As representative of Lastation, she didn't want to exist in the shadows of her allies anymore, and wanted to stand true as the game's main character. With hope in her heart, pure determination, and an army of generals at her command, her wish finally comes true in...

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Comes West this Fall

Trigger happy

While the NIS America press event overnight didn't reveal a whole lot, it did announce that one of the most anticipated Japanese PlayStation Vita titles, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, is launching physically and digitally in North America and Europe this Fall. Occurring between the events of Danganronpa: Trigger...

News: JRPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines Builds a Family on Vita Next Month

JRPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines Builds a Family on Vita Next Month

Bloody business

Turn-based title Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines finally has a Western release date -- and it's hopefully sooner than you expected. The relatively dark role-playing game sees you take control of a cursed clan that spans generations. Each family member ages rapidly, and only lives for around two years before the curse takes hold and...

News: PS4 Takes Centre Stage in Sony's Big New Three Year Strategy

PS4 Takes Centre Stage in Sony's Big New Three Year Strategy

Growth driver

It's been obvious for a while, but Sony will continue to bet on the PlayStation 4 to put it back in the black. As part of a corporate strategy meeting earlier this week, the Japanese giant labelled its gaming business as a "growth driver", and recognised it as pivotal in its ambition of raising ¥500 billion ($4.2 billion) in earnings...

Store Update: 18th February 2015 (Europe)

18th February 2015 (Europe)

Ready at dawn

The slew of discounts on the European PlayStation Store are arguably the highlight this week, but let's not ignore the new arrivals, which include The Order: 1886, Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, and Q*Bert Rebooted. There are also a bunch of fresh themes on the PS4 and Vita, including some birthday designs for the latter device...

Here's Your First Look At Toukiden: Kiwami's Oni Slaying Action on PS4

Gone clubbing

Toukiden: The Age of Demons was quite a pretty game on Vita, and we're sure that its semi-sequel, Toukiden: Kiwami, will be too. However, with the game also slashing its way onto the PlayStation 4, how much better will it look on Sony's newest system? Fortunately, the answer is pretty good. Sporting better lighting, textures, and...

You Can Save on a Massive Selection of PS4, PS3, and Vita Games in Europe's New PSN Sale

Happy Birthday Vita

North America got its own selection of discounts just yesterday, but Sony hasn't forgotten about us Europeans, either. Starting today, a massive amount of titles have had their prices slashed, including Destiny, Samurai Warriors 4, both Danganronpa games, and even The Evil Within. You're especially lucky if you're a big
