Our UK team in full swing

Whether you're a long-time Push Square reader or this is your first visit to our corner of the web, we want you to come meet a few people.

We've assembled a stellar team to provide you with top notch PlayStation content, from news and reviews to features and interviews for years to come. Let's get introduced.


James Newton — Editor

Our resident fighting game master, James’s head is filled with reams of eight-way arrows and variations on the letter P.

Sammy Barker — Associate Editor

A true PlayStation veteran, Sammy’s covered the world of PS gaming for years, with an enormous Trophy count to prove it. He also likes tennis games way more than you.

Jon Wahlgren — Editor at Large

A man of broad tastes, Jon’s just as happy blasting robots as he is reading about how handsome he is, which is very handsome indeed.

Thomas Whitehead — Features Editor

Welshman Tom has the easier-than-it-sounds job of rustling the staff together and getting them to talk about games. He also loves episodic edutainment games more than you can fathom.

Mike Mason — Assistant Editor

Mike loves Katamari so much it’s not even a surprise when he dresses as the King of All Cosmos any more. Reigning team SingStar champion.

Corbie Dillard — Vita Editor

A PlayStation gamer since the start, Corbie’s smitten with Sony’s latest black beauty. Rumour is his epitaph will say “VITA TILL I DIE.”


Patrick Elliot

Patrick’s PlayStation collection is the envy of the world. Last year he had to stop his popular tours as mopping up the drool was becoming a full time job.

Chris Ingram

Even the hardest PlayStation games tremble before Chris, who likes to play Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2’s Master Ninja mode to wind down before bed.

Nathan Michalik

Nathan loves anything Japanese and hardcore. His Monster Hunter and DanceDanceRevolution skills are not to be trifled with. You should see him play them simultaneously.

Mark Reece

Nice guy Mark knows what he likes but won’t share it with us. Something about a “secret password”.

Joe Walker

Joe lists his areas of expertise as “puzzle games, fighting games, giant enemy crabs”. Someone give him a job in development.

The Management

Anthony Dickens — Managing Director

Anthony’s first words upon playing House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut in 3D for the first time are not fit for publication. Let’s just say he was pleased.

Darren Calvert — Operations Director

According to our resident Batman, the best thing about owning a PS3 is being able to relive his past adventures from the safety of the sofa.

Damien McFerran — Editorial Director

Damien’s owned more PSPs than most people have had hot dinners. He blames Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions.

To help you get even better acquainted with our team, check back over the coming days for their personal picks of PS3 games you just have to own.
