Remembering a decade of (mostly) outstanding PlayStation coverage
Are you red E?
Look, let’s address the big white elephant in the non-existent room: whatever happens over the next week or so, this is not going to be a vintage E3 for PlayStation. You can call us cynical if you like, but it’s just not going to be – without Sony in attendance, there’s going to be a gaping hole in our coverage that no...
Listen up, agent
The game's out on PS4 right now, so where's our review for The Division 2? Well, as is almost always the case with these live service titles, the press don't get access to early review code, and that's what's happened with The Division 2. In other words, we'll be playing through the game at the same time as everyone else. That's...
Remembering a decade of (mostly) outstanding PlayStation coverage
Every good story starts with a eureka moment! My fledgling music career had fizzled out before I’d even had chance to finish my mathrock cover of Bump in the Night, and a bright-eyed Sammy Barker – then with much better, much blonder hair – decided to do something new. I’d...
The time has come for games critics to reveal their reviews for Kingdom Hearts III, but unfortunately, you won't be getting a review from us here at Push Square just yet. Obviously Kingdom Hearts III is a big deal -- this is a sequel that people have literally been waiting over an entire decade for -- but as you may have already...
All will be revealed
We know we say this every year, but 2018 really is our biggest Christmas schedule ever. Like, frankly it’s flabbergasting how much content we’ve prepared for the next 10 or so days – there’s everything from holiday editions of Indie Bin through to Soapboxes, Polls, and much more. We’re really proud to be ending the...
Marvel's Spider-Man and Red Dead Redemption 2 in top three
Looks like Kratos may need to invest in a new trophy cabinet, because hot on the heels of last week’s The Game Awards 2018 win, God of War has now topped the Push Square forum’s Game of the Year poll. As brilliantly organised by community member KratosMD , readers have spent th
Push Square’s official Game of the Year has been decided, but you won’t see the editorial team's top ten until later in the month – we’ve got to keep the articles churning through the slow Christmas period, after all. That said, if you want some Game of the Year action right now, then our readers are voting on their...
Top of the BlOps
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out now, and you’re probably wondering where our review is, right? Well, you’re going to have to sit tight. The reason for this is because the latest in Activision’s ginormous series is heavily online focused, and while we could have pushed for invites to swanky review events, we prefer to cover...
A quick word from the editors
As you may have noticed, reviews for Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age are now hitting the web. We did a quick round up that you can check out through here. However, we don't have a Push Square review of Dragon Quest XI to present to you, and we're going to detail why that is in this...
You'll get a Banoffee biscuit for your troubles
Maybe it’s just us, but we’ve always derived a perverse kind of pleasure from completing readership surveys. You could say we’re doing you a favour by presenting you with about a billion different questions about your experience on Push Square, then. While we’re pretty much already the best...
The topic of reviews and our scoring system comes up an awful lot among the Push Square editorial team. Is an out-of-10 scale still the right way to go? Should we move to a 5-star rating? How can we make scoring games easier for our fleet of reviewers? Do we need scores at the end of our reviews at all? It's something that's needed looking...
The pick of the bunch
That’s it, then – almost two weeks of Christmas content done and dusted. As we settle back into a normal rhythm, we thought that it was worth recycling all of our work one last time with a Round Up of our full PlayStation 4 Game of the Year 2017 top ten. Push Square's Favourite PS4 Games of 2017: Persona...
We’ve been busy. Like, really busy. Behind the scenes we’ve prepped no less than 30 articles, all of which are set to run over the holiday break. Among them is our Game of the Year countdown: our 10 favourite PlayStation 4 titles from 2017, in descending order. This year was really difficult to determine because there were just...
Aloy to the world
While the world anticipates Geoff Keighley’s The Game Awards 2017 this evening, the Push Square forum members have already spoken, declaring Horizon: Zero Dawn to be their Game of the Year. After 250 posts as part of a typically epic thread coordinated by themcnoisy with assistance from KratosMD,
Help make the decision now
The annual Game of the Year bonanza is now underway in the Push Square forums, with our resident points tallying pro themcnoisy working to determine our community’s favourite PlayStation release of 2017. There are no shortage of contenders this year, with Persona 5, Horizon: Zero Dawn,
Race against time
Gran Turismo Sport is out now in North America and later this week in Europe and Japan, which marks the first instalment of the simulation racer on the PlayStation 4. Millions of you downloaded the demo to get your first taste of the title, and we’ve been faffing around with final code for a few days. However, despite a global...
Keeping you in the loop
We don't usually do articles like this, but given the popularity of a release like Destiny 2 and in the interest of transparency, we're going to take the time to outline our review plans for the game. We've attempted to answer a number of frequently asked questions below, with the hope being that our answers provide some...
If you're anything like us, then you're pretty excited to get stuck into Destiny 2 once it launches on the 6th September. But before you dive straight into Bungie's sci-fi sequel, there's one question we need to ask: would you like to join our official Push Square clan? Clans will supposedly play a bigger role in...
There's a Jammie Dodger in it for you
Anyone else derive a perverse kind of pleasure from filling in surveys? Good news, then – it's that time of the year yet again where we thrust a questionnaire in front of your bemused faces and beg you to fill it in. Pretty please? With a cherry on top? Seriously, though, this survey comes from our...
Earlier this year we launched our new Push Square layout and we couldn't be happier with it. One of our goals was to better spotlight the breadth of content that we create every single day, without it obstructing general news consumption – and we reckon that we've done an excellent job. However, some regular readers commented that you'd...
Everything in one place
Hooked on Horizon: Zero Dawn? Want to get all of our updates on the game in one place? Well, we've just created a hub page for Guerrilla Games' role-playing franchise that will keep you abreast of all of the developments in the fledgling series. You can find the page through here; simply click 'Follow' and it will be added to...
Do you like what we've done to the place? Phwoar, it's pretty bloody spiffing, isn't it? For the past year we've quietly embarked on a Nathan Drake-esque adventure in search of the perfect Push Square facelift. We loved the previous layout just as much as you do, but the simple fact is that we outgrew it; we create such a variety of...
Here's what you can expect
Good ol' Game of the Year: the perfect excuse to pad out a slow period of news with pre-written articles while we stuff our faces with turkey sandwiches and all attempt to earn the Platinum Trophy in Final Fantasy XV. You may have noticed already, but our coverage is already underway, though things properly get started...
It's almost the end of the calendar year which means that it's time for editorial outfits around the world to start putting together Game of the Year lists. We've been working on our coverage for a couple of weeks now, and you can watch it all unfold on the site over the Christmas break, so make sure you're checking back for that. In...
This is how we do it
You may have heard or read about Bethesda's recent statement regarding its review policy. Essentially, the publisher will no longer be sending out review code to the media – that's websites and publications like Push Square – until the day before launch. This means that we won't have time to write reviews for games like The...
Hey everyone, it's Sammy from Push Squa—and this isn't a video script, you nitwit. I just wanted to update you with regards to the status of our No Man's Sky review. As many of you know, the game is out tomorrow in North America and a day later in Europe, but we won't have a verdict ready for you until later in the week. This...
Ever industrious Push Square reader themcnoisy couldn't have timed the results for our greatest PlayStation game poll any better, could he? For those who haven't been keeping tabs, readers have been voting on the best games ever released on a Sony system for months now – you may remember that we posted about the top 64 titles ea
And it's a strong list
Several months of perfectly planned polls coordinated by Push Square reader themcnoisy have brought us to this point: the 64 greatest PlayStation games ever made – according to you, the readers. For those of you that haven't been keeping tabs on the enormous thread in our forum, members have been voting for their favourite...
Time to vote
Organisational idol themcnoisy is back with another awesome forum contest, with the objective this time to determine the greatest PlayStation game of all time. There'll be a slew of rounds, contests, and battles before the ultimate winner is crowned, with the prologue stage well underway as we write. You've got until 29th February to...
Be a bae
Look, we're know that you're busy trying to finish The Witness, but can you forget about line puzzles for five minutes, please? Our not-so intimidating overlords at Gamer Network have concocted a right stonker of a survey, and kindly asked us to gently nudge it in your general direction. We really, really need your help with this, because...
The final countdown
Spoilers: we picked our Game of the Year winner a couple of weeks ago. Since then, the Push Square team has been frantically writing articles in order to keep you occupied over the holidays. This year's, er, end of year coverage is going to be our best ever, with a number of our authors sharing their personal Top Five titles of...
Fallout 4! Bloodborne! Rocket League!
While we're still preparing our full Game of the Year coverage here at Push Square Towers – check back during Christmas to read all that we have in store – forum user themcnoisy has been organising a Best of 2015 poll in our forums. Users were asked to pick their three favourite PlayStation games of the...
We'll have lots of Game of the Year coverage from the team next month, but if you can't wait that long, the community on the Push Square forums have set up their own independent poll. Orchestrated by member TheMcNoisy, the voting will run in this thread from now through until 12:00AM GMT on 5th December. You'll
Are you red E?
Buckle up everyone, because E3 2015 is just around the corner. The biggest event in gaming comes around but once a year, and over the course of about a week, we're bombarded with news, release dates, announcements, and trailers from just about every publisher under the sun. For us here at Push Square, it's a time that we both relish...
Metal Gear developer to move into video game journalism
Loughborough, England – Push Square, the internationally recognised PlayStation publication operated by Nlife Ltd, has today announced that video game visionary Hideo Kojima will be joining its editorial team as a reviewer. Mr. Kojima is perhaps best known for his work on the critically...
2012, here we come
2012 is the year PlayStation makes its next major move in the console business, releasing PlayStation Vita in Europe and North America on 22nd February. Just as PlayStation is ready to leap forward, so are we at VitaGamr: committed to bringing you the most important news and reviews from the world of PlayStation Vita. We're...
2012 – you're next
As we close the book on 2011 we open a fresh page for 2012, and a what year it's looking to be for PlayStation — and for us. Highlights of the coming year include Sorcery, DUST 514 Star Trek and plenty more. We have some extremely exciting developments up our sleeve for 2012 that we're sure you love.
