  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of August 2017

    Treasures, hedgehogs, paranoia, and a lot of reading

    Wowza, August was one stacked month for PlayStation gaming. We reviewed more games last month than any other month in 2017 so far, and there were actually so many quality releases that our nominees list for Game of the Month was the biggest we've ever had. Okay, so some titles didn't exactly prove...

    Judges, trials, and hot stuff

    This summer has just flown by, hasn't it? We're now sitting pretty in August, but we can't possibly forget the gaming goodness that came our way last month. July certainly wasn't the strongest period we've ever seen, but our internal staff vote to decide our Game of the Month was still a close call. Feast your eyes...

    Iron fists, arcade action, anti-gravity, and an orange mascot

    If you've been a fan of the PlayStation brand since the good old days of the PSone, then there's a good chance that June brought back some fond memories. Last month saw the return of three properties that once helped define Sony's console - and every one of them has managed to secure a...

    Whimsy, Batman, shadow things, and exploding eyeballs

    Yikes, it's the summer of 2017 already. The year seems to be flying by, but at least we've had more than our fair share of gaming goodness so far - and May wasn't found lacking for quality titles, either. As always, we got our team of writers together in order to vote for the best game of last...

    Robot dinosaurs, giant demons, more robots, and truth bullets

    March has been another great month for Sony's current-gen console, a machine which seems to be keen on completely stripping us of our free time. Back at the end of February, we were forced to point out that PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn would be, if anything, featured in this...

    Robot limbs, scary dogs, virtual girls, and fish

    See, this is what happens when you remember to organise the staff Game of the Month vote too early. Your humble host put the internal poll together before September had even begun, and now here we are, over a week later, and the damn article is only just being written. Still, we can at least push...

    Pixels, satsumas, warring China, and giant men with horns

    Oh dear, July's Game of the Month article's a bit late, isn't it? Your humble host completely forgot about our prestigious award not once but twice in the space of about four days. That's surely some sort of new record? In any case, we're here now, and after a pretty close staff vote, we've...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of May 2016

    Heroes, demons, tanks, and treasure

    May was a cracking month for PlayStation, with several heavy hitting titles bursting onto Sony's latest system. Despite the strength of our Game of the Month nominees, though, there was a clear winner when it came to the crunch. And no, you don't get any prizes for guessing which release came out on top. Bronze...

    Beanies, bald men, salt, and dastardly tentacles

    Usually a very busy period when it comes to gaming, March honestly wasn't too bad this year. With various big name titles being pushed into April and May, you could say that we got off somewhat lightly, but there were still more than enough good games for us to ponder over with regards to our Game...

    Witness this

    It's already February, can you believe it? Nah, me neither – but at least this upsetting event means that it's Game of the Month time. That's right, your favourite voiceover man is back with another top four for you to flagrantly feast on. And unlike previous Januarys, the line-up is a proper corker this time.

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of January 2016

    Puzzles, Vikings, zombies, and starving kids

    It's the first Game of the Month article of 2016, which should set us up nicely for the many upcoming titles that lie ahead. In truth, January didn't boast a whole lot of blockbuster releases, but thankfully, a slew of smaller budget games were on hand to keep us entertained. Sure, you can probably...

    S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stuff

    Sure, the Commonwealth may be laden with Super Mutants and all other sorts of (game breaking) bugs – but this Video Editor happened upon a terminal loaded with Final Cut Pro in a kindly Boston bunker, so it looks like you're getting a Game of the Month clip after all. Top hole, viewers!

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of November 2015

    Thumping tunes, guns, blasters, and the wonderful wasteland

    Well, that's November done and dusted for another year. A month dominated by a trio of blockbuster releases, we all thought that November was going to give way to a clash of epic proportions when it came to our internal Game of the Month staff vote, but it actually turned out to be a bit...

    Nate a minute

    We normally let Ben Potter write the captions for his videos, but seeing as no one's seen him since this clip was submitted, someone else has had to step in. To be honest, what with all of the bombs and gun fire audible in the above watch box, we're starting to get a bit worried. Potter, message us if you're reading this, yeah?

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of October 2015

    Heroes, sinners, nutters, and hunters

    October was a pretty good month for high scoring titles, which made our internal Game of the Month poll a tough one to call. As always, five titles are nominated for our prestigious monthly award, but only four make it into these articles – and from those four, only one can be crowned our Game of the Month...

    Paper, boy

    Nothing hacks this video editor off more than preparing for a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain victory – only for Tearaway: Unfolded to come out of nowhere with its cardboard cuteness and snatch the Game of the Month win. Fortunately, your humble host improvised – stay tuned for footage of Push Square's very own paper-based...

  • Game of the Month Top 4 PlayStation Games of September 2015

    Espionage, paper cuts, time travel, and destined comebacks

    Phwoar, September was a pretty great month for PlayStation gaming, and the internal staff vote to find a worthy winner of our Game of the Month crown was a tight affair indeed. We reckon that it's been the closest competition this year, and with more blockbuster releases looming on the...

    Guess who got the Bloodborne Platinum Trophy? Here's a hint: he's handsome, loves Taylor Swift, and works for Push Square. Oh God, no – it wasn't darn well Sammy. It was actually me, but as a result of that case of mistaken identity, I'm going to sulk for the remainder of this pre-amble. Watch the video if you like... Whatever...

    Oooh, those bloody indies, eh? Ruining everyone's fun with their SNES graphics and their obsession with pop culture references. "We're not ripping off old games!" they cry. "We're paying homage! It's different!" Meanwhile, the stoic and the knowledgeable among us shake our heads in disgust as...

    And now that Bloodborne's out of the way, it's back to your regularly scheduled slice of Game of the Month video goodness – in which your humble host talks Bloodborne. We let the good blood guide us this time out, as we get to the bottom of the PlayStation 4 exclusive's plot – and compare it to election debates. Both make about as...

    Yet more zombies, throwbacks, and far too much blood

    Before you say it: yes, we know that this edition of Game of the Month is a bit late, but we've had video editor Ben Potter locked in the basement for about three weeks as we forced him to review Bloodborne. He emerged only yesterday, clutching his handwritten essay, and ranting about his...

    February 2015 may have been quite literally the worst month in PlayStation history, but that's not stopped us from pumping out another recap video. Watch on as we crown Dragon Ball XenoVerse, and also break a bit of bad news to Sir Galahad and crew. He didn't take it particularly well, we're afraid to say. Oh well, remember to push that...

    Stupid game names, robots, Goku, and pottery

    February's always an interesting month. We begin to see titles trickling through into the market, signalling the start of the inevitable spring rush that's on its way – either that, or these games are just desperate to avoid being crushed by the encroaching onslaught. Regardless of their reasons for...

    Who missed me? Aw, look at that, you've all gone shy... And quiet... And have started walking in the wrong bloody direction! C'mon back precious eyes, because if we don't get 500 views on this Game of the Month clip then this video editor has a noose around his neck, and let me tell you, he's darn well not afraid to use it. There'll be...

  • Game of the Month January 2015

    And so it begins

    2015's first month didn't provide that much to write home about, but that didn't stop our internal staff vote from being a very close affair. Contrary to popular opinion, zombies haven't quite gone out of date yet, as two horror titles featured on our shortlist, while two never-before-seen-on-PlayStation remasters entered the...

    Slay to go

    We’re trying something different with this latest Game of the Month video, as this video editor can’t stomach another restless weekend sat in front of Final Cut for a clip that will barely break 100 views. As such, this month’s edition has been condensed like a piece of IKEA flat pack furniture. Unlike the Swedish megastore’s...

  • Game of the Month November 2014

    The big one

    2014's busiest month has come and gone, leaving us with heated debates over what should win our coveted Game of the Month award. With blockbusters abound and plenty of great games leaving lasting impressions, it was always going to be a tough one, but at the end of the day, only the final staff vote counts. So, which title took the...

    New music, new games, new video – it’s Game of the Month time. Again. Already. Despite the fact that these come around bloody fast, we’ve got a corker lined up for you today. Watch on as we pick a new backing track in realtime, watch cat robots quaff boiled eggs, and, er, publish silly pictures of an alien with an afro. See you...

  • Game of the Month October 2014 - Alien: Isolation

    It's behind you

    Here at Push Square Towers, we reviewed a mighty 38 titles in October, and, for the most part, they've given us plenty of enjoyment. 7s rained down from the gaming heavens, and there were plenty of 8s to shout about, too. Now, however, we're into the industry's busiest month, with blockbuster after blockbuster strutting onto the...

  • Game of the Month September 2014 - Destiny

    Destined for greatness

    It comes as little surprise, but September was a great month for gaming. Signalling the beginning of the holiday rush, it was packed with enjoyable releases and subsequently high scores, which made our always intense staff vote all the more interesting. This isn't the first time that we've argued amongst ourselves regarding...

    Two PS3 to PS4 ports in just as many months, and both of them win our Game of the Month award. That's right, Push Square's staff are secretly trying to rile you up to the point where you think we're all either evil port pushers or sickening indie apologists. Is it working yet? If not, take a look at our typically...

  • Game of the Month August 2014 - Metro Redux

    Tunnel of love

    It's Game of the Month time once again here at Push Square, and what a busy month for games it was in August. We reviewed 27 titles in total, but PlayStation 4 port naysayers probably won't be happy with the winner of our prestigious award. Back in July, we crowned The Last of Us Remastered as the best release of the Summer month,...

Well, because this video editor is currently swatting flies...

  • Game of the Month July 2014 - The Last of Us Remastered

    Your record is broken

    They may be the spores of yore, but it’s no surprise that The Last of Us Remastered has clouded our minds since its release last week. Technically an August launch in Europe, we figured that we’d classify it in this version of Game of the Month because, well, we don’t have any hard rules for this sort of thing and just...

    Valiant effort

    Ding dong, E3 is dead – and that means that order has been restored here at Push Square Towers.

It’s not, but it still bloomin’ made its way into our June Game of...

    Wartime winner

    We're now deep into the summer months, and 2014's hottest season has thankfully provided some sizzling titles so far. Last month's selection may have been lacking in blockbusters, but we ended up giving out a slew of high scores to a bunch of vastly different games. Alas, as you've probably already guessed, Ubisoft's picturesque...

    Would you believe us if we told you that our staff vote to determine May's Game of the Month ended in a three-way tie before the final decision was made?

    April may not have equalled March's onslaught of great games, but it still managed to play host to a number of smaller titles that ended up occupying large chunks of our time.

    For a month consisting of only a couple of big-name releases, we were certainly busy in December.
