Push Rewind Logo 1

T'was a fairly uneventful week on Planet PlayStation last week, which worked out rather conveniently for us. We spent a bunch of our time travelling and chatting as we planned the next stage of the site, so we probably picked the right days to take time out. Alas, we did have some big news, features, and reviews, so let us round everything up for you.

Shovel Knight - 9/10

It's unfortunate that this new version of Shovel Knight doesn't add much, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the best games on Sony's hardware. If you haven't already, now's the perfect time to jump into Yacht Club Games' 8-bit masterpiece.

Broken Age - 8/10

When all's said and done, Broken Age makes an excellent case for why the adventure game genre deserves to exist in this medium. Indeed, it's a wonderfully charming title that really feels like a celebration of the point-and-click format. Sure, it doesn't necessarily do anything ground breaking, but it doesn't really need to. If you're a fan of Tim Schafer's previous work, then this is unmissable.

Feature: What Are May 2015's Free PlayStation Plus Games?

The debate regarding PlayStation Plus rages on for another month, as May 2015's selection of free software is... Well, divisive to say the least. As always, we're following up our news story with a fuller feature outlining everything that's set to join the Instant Game Collection from 5th May in North America and 6th May in Europe. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin.

First Impressions: How Does The Elder Scrolls Online Beta Look and Run on PS4?

After absolutely hammering The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited PlayStation 4 beta virtually all weekend, we're actually a bit sad to see it go. Our jaunt back into Tamriel has been an enjoyable one, despite the fact that it never truly wowed us. Perhaps this is another case of keeping expectations relatively low, and coming out of the experience pleasantly surprised – we can't really say, but what we do know is that console players looking for a meaty massively multiplayer online time sink will definitely want to keep an eye on this one.

PS4 Platformer Yooka-Laylee Makes Over $1 Million in Six Hours

We first got wind of Yooka-Laylee yesterday, when our colleagues from Nintendo Life popped into the Push Square office with a whole slew of exclusive assets from the then-unannounced game. Our reaction, at the time, was: it looks interesting – but we don't think that anyone expected this kind of response. In the span of six hours, the Playtonic developed platformer has raised over $1 million on Kickstarter – and it's showing no signs of slowing down.

Yup, Now Even Konami's Saying Silent Hills Is Done

Konami danced around the prospect of Silent Hills' cancellation in a statement released earlier today, but in a comment to Kotaku, it's placed a final nail in the coffin. The publisher told the website that it's committed to developing future Silent Hill games, but that the "embryonic Silent Hills project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued".

The Last of Us: Left Behind Breaks Out on Its Own

The Last of Us: Left Behind served up an affecting slice of single player content that extended the core campaign of Naughty Dog's survival horror opus. But if you never played the main adventure, and are keen to see what all of the fuss is about, Sony's breaking out the DLC and re-releasing it as a standalone product. Think inFAMOUS: First Light without the superpowers – and a bit more John Green.

Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae Is Getting Patched

In a rather bizarre, but admirable way of doing things, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata has taken feedback from the official Episode Duscae demo survey, and has addressed each complaint one by one, via a recent livestream event. If you'll recall, the aforementioned survey covered a lot of ground, asking users to rate the demo overall, rate its separate components, and take a minute to detail their least favourite parts of Episode Duscae.

Holy Money Spinner, Batman! Arkham Knight Season Pass Announced

Welcome to the world of AAA video games, where you can comfortably pay upwards of $120 on a single title – before it's even released. It would be naive to expect a blockbuster on the scale of Batman: Arkham Knight to shun nefarious money spinning opportunities on the side – and lo and behold, Rocksteady Studios has announced a Season Pass for the forthcoming superhero foray today.

You Can Glitch the Camera in Bloodborne to Make it Look like Diablo

How people actually discover glitches like this, we're not entirely sure, but Bloodborne's latest is certainly one of the strangest we've seen in some time. YouTube user PaiNz V has found a way to get the camera angle stuck into a birds eye view, like you'd usually find in titles such as Diablo or Hotline Miami.
