Second half dramatics
We can hardly believe that we're more than halfway through 2016 already, but at least this year has offered up some good gaming times so far. The likes of Dark Souls III and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End immediately spring to mind, but the latter half of 2016 also promises an abundance of great looking titles, so we've decided to...
Poll Are You Still Excited for No Man's Sky on PS4?
Or has the wait killed the hype?
At the time of writing, the date is the 24th June 2016. If it hadn't recently been delayed into August, No Man's Sky would have released today on PlayStation 4 here in Europe, and it would have launched three days ago in North America. Yep, in an alternate universe where developer Hello Games thought "you know what?...

Poll Are You Enjoying Overwatch on PS4?
And who's your favourite character?
Overwatch made a big, big splash earlier this week when it launched on PlayStation 4. The team based shooter from developer-that-can-do-no-wrong Blizzard has already captured the hearts of many a Push Square scribe, but how do you feel about it? Has its accessibility got you addicted? Have you had your Play of the...
Poll Which Uncharted Game Is the Best?
We bet that some of you saw this one coming. Naughty Dog's hardly put a foot wrong with Nathan Drake, the luckiest man alive and protagonist of the Uncharted series. Although Uncharted: Drake's Fortune didn't quite set the world alight when it launched back in 2007, we're not sure that anyone could have anticipated the runaway success of...
Poll Are You Enjoying Uncharted 4 on PS4?
A worthy end?
We assume that many of you will have sunk a decent amount of time into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End by now - and we bet that some of you will have finished it - but we just have to ask: are you enjoying it as much as we did? If you didn't get a chance to read Sammy's 10/10 review earlier this week, you can click through here and see why...
Poll Do You Want More Family Friendly Platformers on PS4?
Grab your Groovitrons because Ratchet & Clank is a critical and commercial hit – just try not to mention the movie while you move your feet to the beat. The game – with its strong consumer reception and compelling price point – topped the UK sales charts this week, significantly outpacing Play
Poll So, Which Souls Game Is the Best?
Blood, ash, and eternity
Right, it's time to settle this once and for all. Maybe. Dark Souls III has been out for about a week now on PlayStation 4 - at least here in the West - so we're going to assume that many of you have put a decent amount of time into this supposed final entry. With that in mind, we want you to tell us what your favourite...
Poll Would You Like to See Final Fantasy IX Come to PS4?
Arguably one of the best Final Fantasy titles ever released, Final Fantasy IX is now available on PC via Steam, and we're mature enough to admit that we're seething with jealousy. As such, we thought that we'd put our bitterness to good use and somehow transform the non-PlayStation news into this hastily scrawled article. Always...
Poll Are You Happy with the PS4's Current Firmware?
Or does it need a bit of tweaking?
For what it's worth, we reckon that the PlayStation 4 is in a decent position right now. Recently released firmware update v3.50 brought some nice functionality to Sony's home console, including the ability to appear offline, optional friend notifications, and remote play support for PC and Mac. Regardless of how...
Poll Will You Be Buying Final Fantasy XV?
Let's go on a road trip
Now that Final Fantasy XV finally has a release date and Square Enix has shared its plans for the game, we have to ask: will you be buying it this September? Despite being in production for ten years, the hype's always remained high for Noctis' upcoming adventure, but with director Hajime Tabata stating that the title has to...
Poll Are You Still Playing The Division on PS4?
Has Ubisoft's latest done enough?
Tom Clancy's The Division has been a success commercially - there's no doubt about that - but now that the game's been out for a few weeks, we thought that it might be interesting to see what you lot think of it. Indeed, if we cast our minds back to the heady days of Destiny and its highly anticipated launch, just...
Poll Would You Sell Back Your Digital PS4 Games for PSN Credit?
Trade and untested
There's a Microsoft survey doing the rounds that proposes the idea of "selling back" digital games for store credit. In the questionnaire, it hypothesises a potential scenario where you could essentially relinquish rights to any of the non-physical games stored on your hard drive in return for 10 per cent of the purchase price...
Poll How Much Will PlayStation VR Cost?
Predict the financial damage
Yes, we're recycling an old topic – but it does feel like the right moment to revisit the PlayStation VR pricing saga. Sony's announced that it will be holding a press event during the Game Developers Conference next week, and it's likely to contain pricing and release date details on its wow-inducing wearable...
Poll Are You Happy with PS4 Firmware Update 3.50?
Yay or nay?
Sony detailed PlayStation 4 firmware update v3.50 this week, revealing its codename – Musashi, for those curious – and the list of features that it will introduce. Chief among them is the ability to turn on friend notifications and appear offline – but it also includes improved party functionality, better event scheduling, support...
Feature Happy 4th Birthday, PlayStation Vita
Yes, it's still here
Four years ago today, on the 22nd February 2012, Sony bestowed upon the Western world its newest handheld gaming system: the PlayStation Vita. Originally marketed as something of a home console in the palm of your hands, it's safe to say that the sleek little machine hasn't quite lived up to its potential - but for once, we're...

The 20 question quiz was a huge success, with around 150 of you taking the time to vote on each question...
Poll How Well Is Fallout 4 Running on Your PS4?
We hope it's rad
It's been about a week since Fallout 4 launched, so we think that it's a pretty good time to get some feedback on how Bethesda's latest is performing. As you're no doubt aware, the developer doesn't have the best track record when it comes to making games that run as they should - but from what we've watched and read around the...
Poll What Was Your Fave PS4 Game of Paris Games Week 2015?
Make up your mind time
Paris Games Week 2015 has been a bit of a weird one, hasn't it? Don't get us wrong, the press conference was rock solid in terms of content, but we're used to the likes of E3 and Gamescom bringing additional news throughout the course of the week. This time out, though, the media briefing was the highlight, with only NieR Aut
Poll Which Uncharted Game Would You Crown as Your Fave?
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is out globally today, which means that surround sound systems around the world will be emitting those famous words "oh crap" a not-so insignificant number of times over the coming weeks. Of course, with the PlayStation 4 compilation stirring fond memories, it's perhaps a timely period for us to...
Poll Is the Force Strong with the Star Wars Battlefront Beta?
Pew pew pew
So, the Star Wars Battlefront beta's been out for about a good few hours now, and we dread to think how many imperials have been cut down by laser fire from across the map. The free download's obviously attracted a lot of attention already, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from DICE's rather authentic tie-in - but what do you think...

Meanwhile, FIFA 16 enthusiasts are being quick to point out its various improvements over its predecessors. You can read...
Poll Do You Actually Use the PS4's Social Features?
Share the love
Since the PlayStation 4's launch, Sony's clearly been trying its best to turn the new-gen console into a social hub, allowing you to interact with other users in numerous different ways.

Poll Has Destiny Won You Back With The Taken King?
Is the cryptarch calling?
Destiny: The Taken King is out and fans of Bungie's shooter have probably spent their last weekend grinding themselves into dust.

Poll Which Destiny Ghost Voice Is the Best?
Dinklage or North?
Any fan of Destiny will know that the game's most recent 2.0 update replaced the original voice of your robotic companion - your Ghost - with an all-new actor.

Poll Which Batman: Arkham Game Is the Best?
Step from the shadows
That's right, we're going to ask that question - a question that has divided the gaming community ever since Batman: Arkham City launched all the way back in 2011.

Poll What Do You Think of the New PSN Logo?
Those darned PlayStation Network outage articles have clearly left Sony scarred, as it's done away with the service's old logo. For the past ten or so years, it's employed the purple sphere symbol, but today's batch of firmware updates rendered the icon obsolete. You'll now find a much more contemporary circle on your PlayStation 4,...
Poll What Will You Be Spending Your 10 Per Cent PSN Discount On?
When you really stop and think about it, Sony's "apology" for the PlayStation Network outage over Christmas is a bit of a marketing masterstroke.

Poll Are You in Tune with the PlayStation TV?
It’s hard to shake the feeling that the PlayStation TV is little more than a fleeting distraction for Sony in Europe and North America.

Poll Is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Worth the Price on PS4?
Much more than a packet of cigs
Few franchises are big enough to fashion a furore out of demos, but Metal Gear Solid has always existed among the select few properties that can.

Poll How Much Would You Pay for PlayStation Now?

That...
Poll How Would You Rate Your First Weekend with the PS4?
There’s always a sense of deflation when you anticipate a moment for so long that it passes in the blink of an eye.

Good things come to those that wait – and we reckon that we’ve been especially patient this year.
