  • Review WWE 2K22 (PS5) - A Return to Form for 2K's Wrestling Franchise

    Head of the table

    WWE 2K22 is a better game than WWE 2K20. There, that's the headline. For a variety of reasons 2K20 was released in such a disastrous state that we called it "a comedy horror title" in our review at the time. Surely taking stock of just how much the WWE license is worth to them, 2K and beleaguered developer Visual Concepts made the...

  • Review WWE 2K20 - 2K Sports' Wrestling Sim Hits Rock Bottom

    Undisputed Error

    WWE has released a video game based on its flagship brand of sports entertainment every year for close to three decades now, so it may be surprising to some that this year’s entry has veered away from the franchise’s grappling roots in a variety of ways. For a start, all traditional forms of locomotion have been removed, as you...

  • Push Scare How Final Fantasy VII's Not-So-Scary Intro Made Me Shelve It for Two Years

    Silver lining

    Republished on Monday, 31st October 2016: We're bringing this article back from the archives to celebrate Hallowe'en today. The original text follows.

    Grim up north

    This episode, Tarrant's off sunning himself, so associate editor Robert Ramsey steps in as co-host. Also, we discuss the Top 5 PS4K Reveals Sony Must Make at PlayStation Meeting 2016. Our super-duper special guest this week is the reviewer Stephen Tailby who stops in to discuss the divisive, ambitious, and multiplayer-less (?) No Man's...

  • Video I've Never Played... Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Part 1

    Let's Drake

    So, here's the thing: my Push Square Podcast partner in crime Ben Tarrant has never played any of the Uncharted games. As an alleged fan of PlayStation platforms, this news horrified you as much as it did I. As such, by popular demand, we're going to play through Nate Drake's swashbuckling ventures on the PlayStation 4 for your...

  • Video Top 4 PlayStation Games - February 2016


    I've had enough. From now on, Ramsey is not allowed to compile Game of the Month – and he's definitely not allowed to vote. Just look at February's line-up – it's a freakin' weeaboo's wet dream. I'm not having it anymore, I'm sorry…

  • News PlayStation Radio UK Wants Your Ears

    Listeners enquire within

    Hello there Push Square faithful! My name's Ben, and I'm the idiot who makes stupid videos right here on the best PlayStation site in the world.

  • Video Top 4 PlayStation Games - January 2016

    Witness this

    It's already February, can you believe it? Nah, me neither – but at least this upsetting event means that it's Game of the Month time. That's right, your favourite voiceover man is back with another top four for you to flagrantly feast on. And unlike previous Januarys, the line-up is a proper corker this time.

  • Video The 10 Best PlayStation Games of 2015

    Final countdown

    Blimey oh riley, 2016's all up in my face and that bottle of bourbon's making it difficult to stomach. But before this intoxicated video editor chunders all over a blank page, perhaps you'd enjoy our pre-recorded video spotlighting the top ten PlayStation titles from the past 12 months. There's some good stuff in here, like...

  • Video Top 4 PlayStation Games - November 2015

    S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stuff

    Sure, the Commonwealth may be laden with Super Mutants and all other sorts of (game breaking) bugs – but this Video Editor happened upon a terminal loaded with Final Cut Pro in a kindly Boston bunker, so it looks like you're getting a Game of the Month clip after all. Top hole, viewers!

  • Video Top 4 PlayStation Games - October 2015

    Nate a minute

    We normally let Ben Potter write the captions for his videos, but seeing as no one's seen him since this clip was submitted, someone else has had to step in. To be honest, what with all of the bombs and gun fire audible in the above watch box, we're starting to get a bit worried. Potter, message us if you're reading this, yeah?

    Review WWE 2K16

    New, Day Sucks

    It's been two years since 2K Sports took the reins from THQ and began to offer its own spin on the flagship WWE game series, with last year's entry very much seeming like a testing ground for the company's ambitious goals. However, with 2K16 now body-slamming store shelves, has it learned from its mistakes? While the controls are...

  • Video Top 4 PlayStation Games - September 2015

    Paper, boy

    Nothing hacks this video editor off more than preparing for a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain victory – only for Tearaway: Unfolded to come out of nowhere with its cardboard cuteness and snatch the Game of the Month win. Fortunately, your humble host improvised – stay tuned for footage of Push Square's very own paper-based...

  • Video Top Three Ways to Save Money in Metal Gear Solid 5 on PS4

    Wowzer! What a saving!

    Money is a precious commodity in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but Push Square has acquired access to a top secret Mother Base Financial Services VHS tape that includes some killer tips to save you cash. Watch on for Disturbed Dingo's Guide to Saving Money – best viewed, of course, in 240p!

  • Video Top 4 PlayStation Games - August 2015

    Horror show

    Your humble video host was torn away, kicking and screaming from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in order to make this bloody Game of the Month round up, so you had better watch the damn thing. Featuring moronic teenagers, West Midlands accents, and even special guest appearances from everyone's favourite editor who isn't the...

  • Video Watch As We Recap June 2015's Best PS4, PS3, and Vita Games


    Hello valued viewers! I'm back (again) with a packet of Strepsils and a bit of a sore throat. I've been p***ing everyone at Push Square Towers off this month by practicing my Batman impression, and I reckon that I've perfected my grizzly growl for this particular video. Gargling with gravel rather than Listerine appears to have done...

  • Video Watch Us Round Up PlayStation at E3 2015

    That's a wrap

    We may have bleary eyes and itchy armpits, but this video editor has lived to see another E3. This one was particularly exciting, so in order to tie a big pretty bow around proceedings, we've produced a nice video wrap up for you if you can't arsed with, y'know, words. Sit back and watch while we run you through all of Sony's big...

  • Video Rewatch Sony's Best Ever E3 Press Conference Right Here

    An hour and a half of wonder

    Isn't it a great time of the year to be Push Square's resident video person? E3 leaks footage like nothing else in gaming, but the highlights are obviously the publisher press conferences. This year's Los Angeles expo was home to what we have dubbed Sony's best ever presser, and your humble host has embedded it in this...

  • Video Watch As We Recap May 2015's Best PS4, PS3, and Vita Games

    Siri, where's Ciri?

    I don't know what day or time it is, but I do know that I was very politely asked to put on a clean pair of trousers and make a Game of the Month video for May 2015. After being kicked by Sammy a couple of (hundred) times, you can enjoy the end product above. Now, back to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and my pee pots...

  • Video Watch As We Recap April 2015's Best PS4, PS3, and Vita Games

    Narrate this

    Guess who got the Bloodborne Platinum Trophy? Here's a hint: he's handsome, loves Taylor Swift, and works for Push Square. Oh God, no – it wasn't darn well Sammy. It was actually me, but as a result of that case of mistaken identity, I'm going to sulk for the remainder of this pre-amble. Watch the video if you like... Whatever...

  • Video Watch As We Recap March 2015's Best PS4, PS3, and Vita Games

    The good blood

    And now that Bloodborne's out of the way, it's back to your regularly scheduled slice of Game of the Month video goodness – in which your humble host talks Bloodborne. We let the good blood guide us this time out, as we get to the bottom of the PlayStation 4 exclusive's plot – and compare it to election debates. Both make about as...
