    Fortune teller

    How can you possibly predict the unpredictable? 2020 has, for every person on the planet, been the most bizarre year imaginable – and now, as we look forward to 2021, it’s almost impossible to imagine what the future holds. The show must go on, nevertheless, and our annual PlayStation predictions are part of the New Year ritual...

  • Game of the Year #2 - Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Hello, Cloud

    Yep, it finally happened: 2020 was the year that we actually got a remake of Final Fantasy VII. Well, part of one, at least. It may not cover the full story, but Final Fantasy VII Remake wears its love for the original game like a badge of honour. It's as much a homage to the classic Japanese role-playing game as it is a reimagining —...

  • Game of the Year Best PS5, PS4 Story of 2020

    More than a Telltale

    For some, gameplay is the main tell of a quality video game. For others, story is king. A great narrative can be what pushes you through an otherwise dreary set of mechanics and systems, with the prospect of another plot twist on the horizon just enough to keep you going. And the best thing is that those very stories are only...

  • Game of the Year #3 - Ghost of Tsushima

    A will unbroken

    Developer Sucker Punch really went above and beyond with Ghost of Tsushima — a soaring samurai epic that sliced our expectations to pieces.

    A huge shout out is owed to the PlayStation Network engineers who kept us playing happily over the holidays.

  • Soapbox I Can't Keep Up with Service Games

    Let it go

    The way we play games is changing – or, at least, the way I play games is changing. Historically, I’ve always been a one-and-done player; from my collection of favourites, it’s only really the Shenmue saga that I’ve revisited multiple times. And, strangely, GUN – I’ve beaten the PlayStation 2 Western at least half-a-dozen times...

  • Soapbox Rainbow Six: Siege Is My Favorite Shooter of All Time and I Hate It

    A wretched hive of scum and villainy

    The Push Square PlayStation 5 review of Rainbow Six: Siege went through quite a few changes. Originally a monstrously large article, the word count was trimmed by scaling back the amount of time I spent focusing on the game’s problems with cheating and toxicity. But I still have more to say on the subject. And...
