If you’re a regular reader of this site, Disney Infinity 2.0 probably isn’t placed anywhere near to the top of your PlayStation 4 wishlist. However, that doesn’t mean that the release isn’t worth talking about – especially with Marvel characters at the forefront of the package. As such, we’ve teamed up with our friends at...
Our good friends over at Family Gamer TV have been kind enough to send over their videos of Minecraft running on the PlayStation 4 and Vita. The game finally released yesterday on Sony's newest console. If you've been wondering about how Mojang's mega popular title performs, take a look at the seven minute video that we've...
Digging up something delightful
There’s a fair amount of chatter right now about Sony’s treatment of the PlayStation Vita, with numerous executives indicating that the firm’s slowing its support for the format. However, we get the sneaking suspicion that many are sleeping on Minecraft, which, with the right sort of marketing and bundles, could...
Plenty of buzz
Forget about Microsoft’s E3 press conference for a few seconds, as we’ve teamed up with Family Gamer TV to bring you the exclusive reveal of Skylanders: Trap Team’s latest character: Buzzer Beak. The toucan meets chicken villain shares similarities with the Free Ranger from Skylanders: Swap Force, as it shares the same element:...
We ruffle the fur of Sony's new family release
Diversity is essential to any system’s success, so while PlayStation Vita Pets may not look like an instant buy for those of you with macho mentalities, we’ve put the release to the test in a family environment. Unsurprisingly, the title’s already proving a big hit, as evidenced in the Family...
You'll need one of these
Family Gamer TV may have spent the past few days grilling the developers behind the just announced Skylanders: Trap Team, but we’ve also been given an early look at the upcoming sequel’s Starter Pack. As the name indicates, the title’s big gimmick this year in
If there’s one thing that we love more than video games, it’s video games with dozens of physical toys attached to them. Family Gamer TV recently attended the Skylanders: Trap Team launch event in London, and caught up with Jeff Poffenbarger, who’s the executive producer on the game. He outlined the new Trapping features found in...
Caught in a trap
As with Call of Duty, it’s typically around this time of the year when Activision tends to talk about the next Skylanders game. The publisher’s annual toy-focused affair has blossomed into one of the biggest brands on the planet over the past few years, and is showing no signs of slowing down under the organisation’s watchful...
Despite a pretty big push around the world, Sony’s casual monster hunting franchise Invizimals has struggled to take off outside of continental Europe. Nevertheless, the platform holder's giving the property another shot here in the UK, and that’s culminated in the release of Invizimals: The Alliance and Invizimals: The Lost...
No, you can't say everything
Ubisoft’s upcoming PlayStation 4 role-playing game Child of Light is so good that it’s prompted our very own Ben Tarrant to purchase a fire red wig and pretend that he’s protagonist Aurora around the office. While we’ve tried to point out that he’s simply too tall to pull off the look of a teenage girl, the...
Look around you
You may not be aware of it, but the Invizimals franchise is huge in continental Europe. Spanish developer Novarama’s augmented reality collectathon has not only spawned five games to date, but it’s also secured sticker books, trading cards, and even an animated television show. Now platform holder Sony is aiming to give the...
One for the parents
The Last of Us is certainly not a game intended for children, but its themes are very family orientated. The relationship that builds between protagonist Joel and Ellie in the core campaign will always be best appreciated by parents, while we suspect that almost all adults will be able to relate to the deep bond displayed between...
The ability to play your PlayStation 4 games on the PlayStation Vita is arguably one of the next generation console’s best features, but control limitations mean that it’s not always practical. A title such as Killzone: Shadow Fall, for example – which makes heavy use of the shoulder buttons and thumb stick clicks –...
Sequel to family friendly money spinner seemingly on the way
Disney Infinity may have been pitched as a big playbox of potential, but it seems like developer Avalanche Software is going to need to have another crack at the concept before truly realising its vision. The company – based in Salt Lake City and not to be confused with Just Cause...
Whole Lara love
We try to shy away from direct console comparisons as much as possible here on Push Square, but there is a storm brewing around the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Despite both releases boasting some significant visual upgrades, reports suggest that the enhanced iteration on Sony’s console...
We can't Nate
We’ve already done our own in-depth analysis of Naughty Dog’s recent Uncharted PS4 trailer, but with the studio shutting up shop while it finishes hotly anticipated add-on The Last of Us: Left Behind, it's a
Ever since the PlayStation 4’s launch last month, we’ve been spending a lot of time with Japan Studio’s throwback platformer Knack. Over on Family Gamer TV, we recently asked two brothers to review the title, and take a deeper look at the co-op aspects of the game.
PlayStation 4 launch title Knack hasn’t exactly proven the gem in the system’s software selection that some gaming relics had hoped – but is it any more successful at entertaining a younger audience? Legendary director Mark Cerny famously produced an enormous DualShock 4 controller in order to better understand how the re
Sticking with Sony's slick new adventure
You may have missed it amid the PlayStation 4 launch excitement but one of the biggest and most anticipated PlayStation Vita games hit the streets recently. Tearaway takes Media Molecule’s big console creative game smarts and applies them to Sony's handheld. The result is a title with a real console feel...
Swapping the old for the new
With Skylanders: Swap Force hitting store shelves in North America today, and on 18th October in other territories, we thought that we’d have a quick look at how the sequel has panned out – and get the family perspective in the process. While the title offers great visuals, voice acting, and oodles of new...
Fresh off the truck
Never, ever question Andy Robertson’s dedication to a Skylanders: Swap Force scoop. The face of Family Gamer TV got up bright and early this morning to see a slew of the games arrive at Toys ‘R’ Us. He even got to go behind-the-scenes with his video camera while the boxes got unloaded, and sent off for stock taking...
How can you not love this? There’s a reason that Octodad: Dadliest Catch charted right near the top of our PlayStation 4 wishlist, and it’s replicated in the hilarious video embedded below. Our friends over at Family Gamer TV managed to capture eight minutes of the upcoming next generation title in action at the Eurogamer Expo, and...
Look Ma, no TV
Family Gamer TV recently took a beta version of Johann Sebastian Joust – the PlayStation Move powered multiplayer game set to release as part of indie compilation SportsFriends later this year – to the Greenbelt Festival in Cheltenham. The intriguing title functions without the use of a television screen, but uses music and...
Being talked through a game by the developer and playing it at home is a very different experience. To close this “reality” gap, Family Gamer TV went solo with a full level from Skylanders: Swap Force on the PlayStation 4 at GamesCom. Let’s get the elephant out of the room straight away: jumping is not a big deal in the world of...
Nice 'n' shiny
Those pesky Disney Infinity toys may be stealing all of the headlines at the moment, but Activision’s own family friendly collectathon is not taking it lying down. Skylanders: Swap Force – which, for the first time, let’s you mix and match character parts – is due out on every platform under the sun this year, including the...
Brewing up a storm
Wonderbook may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for families, and those of an inquisitive nature, it offers a totally new way to play games. The only problem, up until recently, was that there was only one title that used the novel peripheral, Wonderbook: Book of Spells. Fortunately, last month saw the release of
