Your Heart Will Go on in Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII’s Co-Op Mode

If you haven’t been paying attention to Call of Duty’s co-op Zombies modes then know one thing: they’re utterly insane now. As announced earlier in the year, Black Ops IIII is going all in, with a mode that will start out on the Titanic and then take you to a Roman coliseum. Why not, eh? This year’s instalment doesn’t have a single player campaign, so Treyarch may as well go mad with the rest of the package. There’ll actually be three full Zombies experiences at launch, with Blood of the…

Uncharted Fan Film Sparks Digital Series Discussions

Nathan Fillion’s turn as Naughty Dog’s wise-cracking rogue Nathan Drake has set tongues wagging right throughout the industry, and after amassing almost two million views in just 24 hours, there’s understandably some discussions taking place about what this means moving forwards. According to director Allan Ungar, speaking with Entertainment Weekly, it was very much shot with the intention of being a fun cinematic short – but understandably, the Canadian’s phone is currently on fire. “I actually got a couple emails today, I’m not going to say from who, but there’s…

Soapbox: Five Years On, Warframe Is Something Special

2013 was a simpler time. The Last of Us had just blown people’s socks off on the PlayStation 3, people were anticipating The Order: 1886, and the PlayStation 4 was new. In among such launch classics as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Knack, a free-to-play title called Warframe launched. Warframe, in it’s launch state, was tough to love. The visuals were distinct and the combat fluid, but the procedurally generated levels weren’t exciting, nor was the constant grind to farm a litany of resource types to craft new gear. Almost…

Review: Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion (PS4)

Adventure Time has been a juggernaut series for Cartoon Network since debuting way back in 2010. Its 10-season run is about to come to an end, and over this span the escapades of Finn the Human and Jake the Dog have spawned six video game entries covering a wide variety of genres. The latest entry, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, sees Finn and Jake tackle the classic turn-based RPG formula. One of the very first things that becomes apparent when playing Pirates of the Enchiridion is this is definitely…

Interview: Flipping Through the Yoku’s Island Express Soundtrack with Jesse Harlin

Hearing Yoku’s Island Express described paints an interesting picture. It sounds like a weird game. A really weird game. Just listen to reviewer John Cal McCormick desribe the title: ” Yoku’s Island Express is a 2D, open world, Metroidvania, pinball game starring a dung beetle postman dragged into a battle for the fate of the world on his first day on the job.” It sounds absolutely bonkers, but luckily John liked it quite a bit, calling it a game that “frequently delights”. One aspect that frequently delights is in the game’s soundtrack.…

Review: Tempest 4000 (PS4)

Back when Atari’s attorneys rocked up on Jeff Minter’s farm and issued one of his prize llamas with a cease and desist letter, it seemed unlikely that Tempest 4000 would ever release on consoles. The eccentric industry veteran had planned on porting the PS Vita’s agonisingly underappreciated TxK to the PlayStation 4, but the once-famous publisher took issue with the arcade game’s similarities to its own prize property. That’s because the portable shooter was, effectively, Tempest in all but name. What a difference a bundle of alpaca wool and a…

Review: Earthfall (PS4)

The Left 4 Dead franchise was one of the defining reasons for the rise in popularity of co-operative multiplayer shooters during the previous generation, and looking back on things, it’s kind of crazy to think that neither instalment ever made its way onto the PlayStation 3. However, the genre has taken a bit of backseat in recent years, and with Valve refusing to release a third entry in any of its series, the baton is passed down to other creators in an attempt to emulate the experience. Developer Holospark is…

Interview: Checking in with The Spectrum Retreat Creator Dan Smith

The Spectrum Retreat is a neat narrative puzzle game we rather liked, thanks to a great setting and some very well conceived puzzles. It’s a big achievement for Dan Smith — a 20-year-old computer science student who built the game while balancing his university work. We were lucky enough to fire a few questions at the award-winning designer about how The Spectrum Retreat came to be. Push Square: You won the BAFTA Young Game Designers Award back in 2016 for your ‘Spectrum’ prototype. How did you get to that stage,…
