We’re all about the next big thing here at Push Square. Whether it’s exciting sequels like God of War Ragnarok, promising new hardware platforms like PSVR2, or even entirely new services like PS Stars – there’s so much to look forward to, it’s rare we ever get the time to look back. That’s where Hookshot Media’s newest website, Time Extension comes in – a reflective, retro-ish website that promises to delve deeper into the classic games you still love.
That includes PlayStation, of course – from the format’s origins with PS1 all the way through to more contemporary consoles like the PS3. To be clear, Push Square will continue to cover any topics of interest when it comes to retro Sony gaming, but Time Extension will complement our coverage – and will venture beyond our boundaries to other manufacturers, like Atari, SEGA, and much more.
The site’s being fronted by our illustrious Editorial Director Damien McFerran, and he’s being flanked by one-time Push Square reviewer Jack Yarwood – we couldn’t possibly envision a better team for this project. But if you want proof, have a gander at some of the stories the site’s already cooked up:
- Full Of Eastern Promise: The Rise And Fall Of Grey Importing
- Best Dreamcast Games
- Soul Blade Composer On The Story Behind Classic Fighting Game Anthem 'Edge of Soul'
- The Mystery Of NES 'Twin Peaks' Solved, Almost Thirty Years Later
- Creator Makes Adorable Tiny Tetris-Like Device
The coolest thing about Time Extension is that your existing Push Square credentials will transition over, so you don’t need to create a different account or setup a new profile. Just login, and have fun. The site also includes some pretty nifty technical upgrades which we hope you’ll enjoy, like the ability to bookmark articles and a much-improved mobile interface. These should eventually get rolled out on Push Square in the future.
We’re now bringing you the best of gaming across four different sites, but as a recap for those of you who aren’t aware: Nintendo Life has all of your Ninty needs, Pure Xbox is your home for the Team in Green, and now Time Extension is your number one classic gaming destination. Oh, and we’re still here, too – please keep clicking on our pages so that we can ensure Deputy Editor Robert Ramsey remains well supplied with Margherita pizza!
We hope you’ll enjoy the new site. (And just as a pro-tip, remember to enable the scanlines!)
This is a pretty neat idea! Sometimes you just can't beat the classics. I have an easy suggestion though for another site should the opportunity ever arise. A PC gaming centric one. With both Microsoft and Sony jumping more and more into PC support along with Valve making a splash with the Steam Deck, it kind of feels like the time is right.
Again just a suggestion! Good luck with Time Extention!
With the way gaming seems to be headed I'll probably be a retro only gamer in the not too distant future , I also thought there was a pc version of PS/PX/NL
Liking the new site a lot.
Just to let you know though, I can't leave a comment on anything for some reason.
Nice. I used to write for Damien and Darren Calvert on the Mean Machines Archive. He's definitely the right person for this site. Checking it out now!
The UI improvements alone are brilliant!
Nice, i seem to be doing more and more retroish gaming nowadays as i become disillusioned with modern day scams/gaming.
I'm finding retro gaming much more appealing these days with all of the nonsense going on with modern gaming.
That's great. It's not always about the next big thing, playing it and forgetting about it.
Great site already, loving the Split second article. Such a great game!!
... Am I the only one getting Time Crisis vibes from that title and logo? 😅
@Smiffy01 I feel the exact same way! The industry is starting to leave me behind. Shredders Revenge has been the high point for me this year! So excited for this new sight!
The making of Split/Second !!!!!!
I'll be reading that eagerly and Time Extension has earned a new subscriber!
@F1at8mot0 Yeah loved that
Thanks PS for letting us know! I started out with Commodore 64 so I love me some retro stuff 🙂 Even though I have a PS5, I also have a PS3 and a hacked Vita for PS1/PSP/Vita games. I will definitely check out Time Extension every now and then 👍
That name is genius btw
Dreamcast? I'm in! Still such a shame the console failed miserably. Probably my favorite machine of all time: great games library and way ahead of it's time!
Great to hear you all like it!
Will check it out for sure
Oooh, this is neat! I got lost in that MGS guide for a good time haha. The MGS nerd in me couldn't get his eyes off it.
But can't we get a neat dark mode on Push Square as well?!
I shall give it a gander when I'm at work next (on break, honest), I see lists, and I do enjoy a good list.
Maybe write about "How Wii Shop Music Changed the World" if you haven't already 😂
I love the new site, these days I spend more time playing retro games then modern and Damien clearly has a passion for it, I'll definitely be a regular visitor
@get2sammyb "The site’s being fronted by our illustrious Editorial Director Damien McFerran"
Was going to ask if this was @damo doing as he's been writing articles about old games on NL for years - never on here though - that had nothing to do w/ Nintendo, glad he has an outlet now for his passion. 👍
Kind of feel like this is full circle for NL as it more or less started out as "virtual console reviews" w/ Darren @Dazza Calvert which was basically an old game review site. Full circle is nice. All the best.
Y'all got any of those "job" things going?
I would love to see a site by yourselves dedicated to pc gaming. Love this site and purexbox.
Cool site! I'd love to see one for PC, too!
Babe wake up, new Nintendo Life/Push Square/Pure Xbox site just dropped
