It's 2012; the future is upon us
You didn't notice? Seriously, stop reading this article right now and find your nearest window — don't worry, we'll wait. Good, you're back. Did you notice the flying cars and newly built steel sky-scrapers on the horizon? Yeah, exactly. The future, huh? Unfortunately the future isn't quite as exciting as late 70s...
Thus concludes another bonkers day in PlayStation land, and we're sure the announcements won't stop coming as GamesCom fever takes hold over the course of the week. Sony's GamesCom press conference was, all told, a fairly muted affair with not an enormous number of huge announcements to shout about. But despite the lack of mind-shattering...
Despite the anticipation being nowhere near E3, we always enjoy the muted build-up to the GamesCom press conferences
You're never going to see a megaton announcement at GamesCom, but because the anticipation is lower, those muted surprises are all the more impactful. The PlayStation 3 Slim announcement in 2009 was huge, and we'll never forget the furore surrounding Resistance 3 last year. This year..
Just a heads-up: remember to follow us on Twitter for our moment-to-moment reaction of everything announced during Sony's press conference
The show is set to start shortly, and you can catch a live-stream of the entire event through here. We're as much a part of the PlayStation community as you guys, so we want to be there with you for every shock,...
What's up, guys? I don't want to make this post unnecessarily convoluted, so I'm going to jump straight to the point
I'm sure you're all aware of the situation in Japan. I've spent the last couple of days wondering what little I can do to help, and figured that the huge stack of PS3 games situated next to my desk might hold the answer. So I've decided to auction off a small pile of older..
No seriously it is. Ok, it's not. We're writing this on a dismal Sunday afternoon sometime in early December. Consider this a message from our future-self or something. Did we even say that right? Goodness knows. All we know is that this post will get published on Christmas morning, and we do genuinely wish you all a very Merry Christmas. If you don't celebrate Christmas then have..
We've teamed up with the fine folks at EA and Mischief PR to give away three copies of Chris Ryan's Medal Of Honor novel
The book, which acts as a prequel to the Medal Of Honor video game, details the back-story of "Southern American old-boy Dusty, father-of-six Rabbit and no-nonsense soldier Voodoo" as they cross enemy lines in modern-day...
Happy Valentines Day from the PushSquare crew
20 days later than the original specified date, I've finally hit my 2,000 trophy target
Ta very much Vancouver 2010, Dark Void and Army Of Two: The 40th Day review duty! Now I have 2,000 trophies, I feel very much the same as I did while I was sitting in the 1,900's - wishing I had the patience to replay older games just to pick-up all those...
My quest for 2,000 trophies came to a rather abrupt end shortly after my last post
See, the thing is, not only was I getting a little tired of the hunt, I'd also made contingency plans. "I'm never going to hit 2,000 with just old games," I told myself, "Need to strengthen my backlog by two games, and I'll do it easily." Of course, said two games are still stuck somewhere in the..
I promise "you are a loser" I'm closing in on a couple more platinums
Please approve. You're my lone drive now. Thanks to my addiction to Borderlands I'm practically on the verge of platinuming the game. And I now have just 90 trophies left to go to achieve my task. I feel pretty much done with Batman right now, having completed all the Riddler...
It was Christmas yesterday
I got some time in with Borderlands but otherwise, I spent the day staring blankly into space wondering why I set myself a ridiculous challenge (to hit 2,000 trophies by January 4th if you were wondering). The 23rd was spent plonked in front of Colin McRae: DiRT 2, reminding myself why I rarely go for platinums. As...
If you're reading this then you're probably stuffed full of turkey, and surrounded by a host of new Playstation content
At least, we hope you are. And in fact there's nothing much else for us to say really. From the whole team at PushSquare (and Twiggy!) we wish you a very merry Christmas. Stay tuned to the site as we countdown our Playstation top-ten.
And that means time-off. And that means we don't have to play the games the publishers want us to. And that means Sammy's going trophy hunting. Over the course of the next 2 weeks, Sammy's going to get his digital e-peen on. Stay tuned to PushSquare as he endeavours to hit over 2,000 trophies before January 4th. His...
We're done. Year numero uno of PushSquare.com is over. Sorta. While we're shutting down the computers and heading home, a backlog of our work over the entire month of December is set to appear: namely our Game Of The Year countdown which will run everyday until January 3rd. There are also some reviews popping up from time to time. And Sammy will be dropping in every now and then to update..
Hello from the local library
Yes, library. Since last night, the PushSquare office has been aflame with computer errors, crashes and viruses. This is bad news because it means we can't load up Firefox for long enough to tell you about amazing Playstation games. Boo! After many hours, braving the storms of computer code, the PushSquare technicians (i.e. Sammy) decided it was time to call in the..
Today is November 10th
That's the day that Modern Warfare 2 officially lands on store shelves. Chances are there's no one around to read this. Fact is, we aren't actually around to write it. This is being written on Sunday 8th November to inform you that, today (today being the Tuesday November 10th) we are playing Modern Warfare 2. And no, we don't intend to update the website. We intend to shoot..
We're just a month on since there was last a new member of the family in the PushSquare office
But it's time to beef up our system selection again with yesterday's launch of the PSP Go. Sadly we had to wait an extra day for our system to drop at the office but we've got our hands on the thing now and are falling in love. It's tiny, light and really very sexy to look at. So much so we assume we're..
Here at PushSquare we are supremely excited about the glut of micro-games headed to the Playstation Store entitled PSP Minis
Thus we'd love to introduce you to our second home for all PSP Minis content — the PushSquare PSP Minis portal. We don't add in new content categories here at PushSquare very often, we like to keep content compact and our...
We just wanted to let you know that PushSquare are on Twitter and we're updating all the time. Not only do you get access to all the latest PushSquare headlines, but we also tell you a little bit about what we're playing, what's coming up on the site and what's in our mailbag. You could do worse things. Like following Phillip Schofield. So why not follow us? It'll take no more than..
Welcome one and all back to PushSquare
We're sorry about the most dreadful day you've probably all had without us. As you may know, we moved hosts earlier today. As far as we can see the move has gone pretty smoothly. We're still looking at a few things we need to fix, but we're working closely with our new hosts to solve that. If you do have any queries, or you have found something broken, you..
Hey welcome back
Yup, you couldn't get on PushSquare in the past hour. We were down again. You may not be totally aware but we've been in an ongoing tussle with our hosts (they are supposed to make the site stay online) for the past few months. That means we're waving goodbye and moving home. Will that make things better? We sure hope so. We're being put massively out of pocket because of all this..
Hey, we're about to bring you that new PushSquare
We're plugging it in and hitting the switch. And that means fireworks will fly. Literally. It wouldn't be a launch if stuff didn't... well, stuff up. We think we have everything in place to make this as smooth as possible - but this is the Internet and computers and we've all been there; it's never straight forward. If you see errors, if you get..
We'll admit it, it's been hard
Last Thursday we said to ourselves, "You know what PushSquare, you're the best Playstation site on the 'Net, but you could be better." So we brainstormed. Then we brainstormed some more. We come up with all the things we liked about the site, and all the things we didn't like. Our biggest concern was with the homepage. We felt like returning visitors were..
Since PushSquare's launch in January 2009 we've covered pretty much all the big PSP and PS3 releases
But something we've been missing on is a database chock-full of Playstation content. Something which we aim to change over the coming years. "PushSquare Review Golden Oldies" is our new post heading in order to allow us entry to reviewing the wealth of PSone, PS2 and early-PS3 content. We..
We've just got done setting up a new commenting system for PushSquare this weekend
The system allows you to use your Twitter or Facebook accounts to comment on articles, entitling you to tracked commenting (with your respective avatars and profiles) without registering for a new account. Neither your Facebook nor Twitter account details will be stored on our server, it just acts as a bridge to make..
E3 2009 is over
Normality returns. And thus, we'd just like to give you some quick stats to mull over. We posted 152 articles about E3 this year. 31 of which were trailers. We Tweeted over 300 times. We had over 40,000 readers... ... And a 70% increase in subscribers. We uploaded over 100 images. We hope you had a blast. We loved every second of it. See you next year?
Sony will be hitting the stage in under an hour. We're practically bubbling with excitement. You've heard our predictions, you've heard our ideas for the perfect conference and you've probably followed Nintendo and Microsoft over the last two days. The pressure is firmly on Sony's shoulders to be abrupt, concise and decisive. And we'll be...
