    PSN Flash Sale 2/17/17- Action Deals

    If you haven't seen yet, the newest PlayStation Store Flash Sale focuses on action games. LINK There are some decent titles on sale as well, but you might already own a lot of them. Here are some of the highlights- Retro City Rampage - $2.49 Contrast (PS3) - $2.99 Don't Starve Console Edition - $3.74 Hotline Miami - $3.99 La-Mulana EX (Vita) - $3.99 Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons - $4.49 Stealth Inc. Ultimate Edition - $4.49 ADR1FT - $4.99 Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes - $4.99 Oddworld New 'n Tasty - $4.99 The Banner Saga - $4.99 Super Time Force Ultra - $5.99 Tembo the Badass Elephant - $5.99 InFamous Second Son - $7.99 Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin - $11.99 DmC Devil May Cry - Definitive Edition - $11.99 King's Quest: The Complete Collection - $11.99 Bloodborne Complete Edition Bundle - $17.49 Marvel Ultimate Alliance - $17.59 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 - $17.59 Also, I believe Marvel Ultimate Alliance is at its lowest price yet. The last time the Amazing Spider-Man games were at that price (or close to it), they were removed from digital storefronts shortly after, so this could be an indication that Activision's license to sell it is about to expire. I don't know that for sure, so take it with a grain of salt, but if you wanted them, better safe than sorry. Anyone getting anything from this sale?

    PlayStation Store PLAY Sale Gears Up for Launch

    Microsoft isn't the only one with a "Summer of Arcade". Sony has their own event titled PLAY which puts the focus on a handful of neat new games with a discount. From July 16th (tomorrow) to August 20th, PSN users will be able to pre-order or buy four new titles. The dates for game launches are as follows. PS Plus members who pre-order will pay the price listed second: July 23: Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark (PS3/Vita) - $9.99 / $7.99 July 30: Cloudberry Kingdom (PS3) - $9.99 / $7.99 August 6: ibb & obb (PS3) - $9.99 / $7.99 August 13: Ducktales Remastered (PS3) - $14.99 / $11.99 There's a little more to it than just four games on sale, though. If you buy two of the selected games then you'll get $3 back. If you buy three then you're awarded $6 back. Finally, if you really wanted all of these games then you would get $10 back, which equates to basically getting one of the games for free. Do you think you'll make use of any of these upcoming PSN sales?

    PS4 Video Showcases Social and Gameplay Features

    If you've been wondering how the PS4 might look and feel to use then you may want to check the new video Sony pushed out today. It doesn't show everything the system's software will offer, but it gives a good idea of various ways someone might use the console. First, it shows how quick it can be to transition from gameplay to watching the video. In this case, a video of Knack is shown as the player accesses their friend's recorded session to figure out a puzzle. Via a social networking-style feed they are also able to "like" the content, as well as start sending messages to friends. Another feature shown is that you can download a single or multiplayer component of a game first. This was demonstrated with Killzone: Shadow Fall. This may aid players who want to hurry into the action, but certainly doesn't change the fact that game installs on the next generation of systems are likely to be quite hefty. Be warned that, alongside showcasing PS4 features, the video is also full of horrendous acting:

    PS Store Update for June 4th

    By now, all the new games as well as discounts should be live on the PS Store. But what all is available for the first week of June on PSN? There's a handful of content, although some of it is more interesting than others. Let's dive headfirst into the newly added games! Vita gets the majority of titles this week: Class of Heroes 2 - $25 Limbo - $15 Paint Park Plus - Free Quell Memento - $5 Toro's Friend Network - Free Of course, the PS3 also sees the digital additions of Remember Me at a full $60 and Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon for a more reasonable $20. Two PlayStation 2 Classics were added as well although the term "classic" might not be applicable in this case. They are Alfa Romero Racing Italiano and Ultimate Board Game Collection for $10 each. You can take a look at every little thing the PS Store updated today on the PS Blog.

    Manhunt Sneaking Up on PSN

    Rockstar's wares have seen many downloads on PSN thanks to their release of all the PS2 Grand Theft Auto titles recently. However, they aren't content with having an incomplete library on the PS2 Classics section. Nope, more games are still coming - one of which is Manhunt. This announcement comes straight from the Rockstar blog. Manhunt originally launched in 2003 to a great deal of controversy due to its semi snuff film nature. The violent stealth adventure eventually saw a sequel, available on Wii and PS2, which also got some negative attention. The PS2 Classics version will run users the typical $10 fee and be out on the next PS Store update. Now there are only a few Rockstar games left that aren't available digitally. The Warriors is one such game and was noted by the company as coming soon to PSN.
  7. Editor's Note: Instead of using our traditional reviewing method with breakdowns and a final score, these games were reviewed by giving a short yet concise overview of each game; thus they were not scored. A download code was supplied by the publisher for this review Despite the PS3 being out since 2006, only a handful of games have been made available through the PSone Classics section on the PS Store. Some true classics have been posted, but so too have games that no one would rightly define “classic.” A subset of the section, PSone Imports, saw such little use that it has now been merged with the main section. Still, near the end of its lifespan, GungHo Online Entertainment has brought out their second batch of import games onto the Store. They first released a batch of import titles last year and it was a pretty interesting selection. Despite being in Japanese, most of the games could be understood by anyone. This time around, the six new games are not as friendly to non-Japanese speaking/reading audiences. All the same, someone must play them to see just how likely it is we may enjoy them! Here“s the take on these six imports from someone who definitely cannot read Japanese. Favorite Dear ~Enkan no Monogatari~ Here is one game that is a surprise to see available to a western audience. Favorite Dear is a series of games, with this being the third in the series, that focuses on RPG and visual novel elements. Players interested in these genres may at first be excited by its availability on PSN, but those without knowledge of Japanese won“t be able to do anything with it. As all these games are pure imports, you“ll be forced to wade through countless menus and text all written in Japanese. If you have no clue about Japanese, then don“t even bother. Those who are students of the language might be able to work their way through, but this is a game best for fluent readers. After all, the game offers up so much text it just isn“t worth it to skip through everything to say you“ve played it. First Queen IV This game seems to be a boilerplate mashup between RPG and SRPG. Although fans can never have enough strategy titles, this is one that is probably best left to those who can actually read Japanese. The game is full of story, none of it voiced, and it seems much of the point in playing is lost through simply not understanding what is happening. Granted, strategy games can flourish based on simply great mechanics. In my case, I found even these aspects difficult though as menus are full of Japanese text. If you can learn them and then memorize what they each mean then the game becomes playable but why put so much effort in? In the case of First Queen IV, it would probably be better to seek out a different SRPG. Mahjong Uranai Fortuna ~Tsuki no Megami Tachi~ Although we may have never played it, many are probably familiar with the game called mahjong. This board game which originated in China revolves around tiles and has four players (typically) facing off against one another. Although the exact mechanics vary by region, the four player games of mahjong are extremely popular in China and Japan. If you want to give this game a shot then make sure you know how to play mahjong (or at least, are willing to read up on it). That“s not to say the game is just a digital rendition of the classic game. It also features fortune tellers which you can play and square off against. It“s also possible to get your fortune from them, but of course it“s all announced in Japanese. Those who can understand spoken Japanese should appreciate that text is also said by characters as well as displayed on screen. Oz no Mahoutsukai ~Another World~ RungRung In this game, you play as Dorothy as her and her pet dog Toto travel about the mysterious realm of Oz. Yep, this is a PS1 rendition of The Wizard of Oz and, despite having similar hallmarks, takes a fair bit of artistic liberty to the world as well. Visually, the game is very bright and looks good for the era. Understanding the game is a bit more complex though. Thankfully many lines of dialog are voiced, which may help some, but otherwise you mostly have to guess as to what to do next. Obviously, missions typed in Japanese text alone leave little room for understanding for the non-Japanese speaker. This is unfortunate considering the game has a cute style. Sentimental Graffiti Of all the games GungHo brought West this time around, Sentimental Graffiti is by far the most head-scratching addition. Although the name certainly doesn“t reveal it, this is a dating sim. While some may be initially very excited by a “new” dating sim being made available it is of little use to non-Japanese readers. The game is completely full of Japanese text. The original game was released on PS and Saturn and was later granted both a sequel and anime series. There are 12 dateable girls and, although you can find a guide, it isn“t particularly able to help you enjoy the story any. It“s probably best that those of us with no Japanese knowledge skip out on Sentimental Graffiti. Trump Shiyouyo! Fukkoku-ban Although this name might sound a bit rude, it ends up being the easiest game to get into by far. As may be inferred by the “Trump” in the name, this is a card game collection. The art style is very cartoony and as such it seems this set was made for children, although they probably wouldn't know the rules of all the included card games. There are ten card games included in all and many should be familiar to US gamers. They are: Baba-nuki (Old Maid), Blackjack, Daifugou (Grand Millionaire), Dobon, Page One, Poker, Seven Bridge, Shichi-narabe (Sevens), Shinkei-sujyaku (Concentration), and Speed. Unfortunately, most of the game names are written in Japanese on the main menu. Once you“re in a game though, most of the information is conveyed through card faces (which don“t change due to differing regions) and so it“s not hard to discern what you“re playing. Overall, GungHo“s latest Imports are an incredibly brave attempt by the company. However, those of us who are unable to read or speak Japanese will find these games too much work to play (aside from the card games). It“s a shame considering the likes of Oz no Mahoutsukai ~Another World~ RungRung seem very appealing and then there“s Sentimental Graffiti which would no doubt sell to dating sim hopefuls in America if it were translated. Still, if you read Japanese or have friends who do, let them know about these unusual PSN releases playable on PS3, PSP, and Vita.

    PS Plus Update Gifts Malicious to Subscribers

    Sony has been in the midst of bringing a whole lot of content to PSN this week. Dragon Fantasy Book 1, RPG Maker 3, and even Mad Dog II have just been added. Of course, the update that PS Plus users like most is the weekly updates on special deals and new additions to the Instant Game Collection. This week Sony has added Malicious to the PS3 roster. The move may be to get gamers aware of the brand before releasing Malicious Rebirth on Vita. Either way, the game will be free so check it out if you've been curious about Malicious. With a new game being added, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X is set to leave the Instant Game Collection on the 23rd. In other news, the Grand Theft Auto series sees a discount until next week's PS Store update. You can choose from pretty much any GTA game from Grand Theft Auto III to Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ultimate Edition. Even spin offs like Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for PSP/Vita are available for 50% off.

    GungHo Bringing Yet Another Batch of PSOne Imports

    It's hard to say that many companies have been keeping the PSOne Classics section alive on PS Store. The digital storefront has been built up over the years, but seems mostly static now. Lately though we have seen one company push handfuls of niche games onto the service: GungHo Online Entertainment. Their interest is purely in import titles, which makes it even more interesting. GungHo is at it again as they shared upcoming releases with the PS Blog. There are six in all, although only three are released this week. The other three will arrive on May 7th. Today's imports include Evergreen Avenue, Favorite Dear ~Jyunpaku no Yogensha~, and Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi~. The first game is a visual novel with minigames and other elements, but is probably not likely to attract players who don't understand the language. Favorite Dear continues the series of dating sim/RPG, which is also text-heavy. Finally, the mahjong game is, well, mahjong. The May games are Motto Trump Shiyouyo!, Zero Kara no Shogi ~Shogi Youchien Ayumi-gumi~, and Zero Kara no Mahjong ~Mahjong Youchien Tamago-gumi 2~. This includes a card game collection, shogi, and more mahjong. Although these selections aren't as exciting, they could theoretically be played by a Western audience as long as the player understands the card or board game in question.
  10. Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurer of Arland is out on the PlayStation Store today! ...Wait, what? Although there were rumors that the enhanced port would possibly make it to North America, there was absolutely nothing said by Tecmo Koei beforehand. Not even now when the game has already been put up on the PS Store! In any case... You can buy Atelier Totori Plus for your Vita for $40. It also comes with bonus DLC. No word on the possibility of a physical release (why would there be?!). What do you think of Tecmo Koei not saying a thing about Atelier Totori Plus releasing in NA?
  11. At the start of the 360, PS3, and Wii's lifespan, there were many who didn't believe in the feasibility or popularity of downloadable games. Now as we're nearing the end of the generation many have since changed their minds completely. Although no company ever said they had plans for maintaining your digital library down the road, it was not something many worried about. Sony Worldwide Studios' Shuhei Yoshida made comments today to burst the hopeful bubble that some had been forming as the PS4 was announced. Here is what he said when asked about PSN games working on PS4: "No. Unless, somehow, some games work on emulation. The easiest thing technically would be to make PS1 games work on PS4 through emulation. But we aren't talking about our emulation plans as yet. There are two ways: emulation or cloud service. But native support, no, sorry. We could do so if we choose to. We know who purchased what as a record. But we are working on service plans, and we haven't decided." So the word at the moment is no. None of your PSN library is going to be transferable to the shiny new PS4 unless Sony makes the effort to get them running, thanks to different system architecture. Recall that Sony received negative reaction after previously suggesting that the Vita would have a way to transfer UMD games for PSN copies. While the service came to Japan, other territories never gained access to it. That is probably why Yoshida had to deliver his response with a fairly strong "no." Did you expect that PSN games would transfer to PS4?
  12. If you've not been paying attention to Sony's giving of free PS Mobile games week after week then this is your last chance. They have been working through a promotion for PS Mobile that also benefits those of us with Vitas. Each week, one game has been featured from that selection and has gone free to PS Certified Device owners (or Vita players). During the last week of Sony's promotion, OMG Zombies is the chosen final game. It has a top down viewpoint and is stylized in black, white, and red. You can probably guess why the color red is so important to this game. Anyway, you kill as many zombies as possible and get better scores by chaining zombie deaths together. It may not be a game with tremendous depth, but it would at least be a way to pass some time. As with the previous free games, this one is also only a handful of MBs, meaning it shouldn't be hard to squeeze onto a Vita memory card.

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Headed to PSN

    Word travels fast on the internet. Just yesterday, sites were buzzing with a listing found on PlayStation Asia's site which showed a download version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Did this mean the game was coming here? There was very little time to speculate as today the PS Blog has confirmed it. San Andreas is the latest game added to the PS2 Classics on PSN and will be available with this week's PS Store update. Way back in February when GTA 3 and Vice City were re-rated for PSN, it seemed like only a matter of time before San Andreas would make it. Apparently it took much longer than expected though, and there does not seem to be any HD Collection in the works. Those who have yet to play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas may still find this pick up worth it. The game first launched in 2004 and became incredibly popular (as GTA tends to do). When media attention swarmed the game over the supposedly scandalous "Hot Coffee" mod, the game was actually reprinted with the offending code removed. Funnily enough, during all this media attention, no one ever commented on a fairly scandalous scene shown during a cutscene. Presumably, the digital copy will be the updated version of San Andreas.

    PS Store Now Accessible Via Browsers

    One thing that has always felt a bit odd about certain digital distribution platforms is when they aren't accessible anywhere other than their originating device. It makes sense that games cannot be played on every device, but why not allow shopping? Sony seems to have finally come around and provided a new and simple means to access the PS Store without having to turn on your PS3 or Vita. It also seems to be one of the few places that Sony has obviously changed the naming to be "Sony Entertainment Network". Either way, you can visit the page and browse through the store just as you would on a system. At least, it appears faster than the system-based version, but otherwise looks very similar. Perhaps it was even the recent Store update that was required to allow the service to be viewable online. Unfortunately, the pages currently live are for European customers, not US ones, although that version should be live soon. As you might expect, using the online storefront connects with your account to (if you want it to). This means that you may purchase items on the site while logged on to your PSN account so the titles are added to your collection. So far, it doesn't appear that the system will allow auto downloads of this remotely-purchased content like XBLA, but perhaps that functionality will roll out later.

    PlayStation Store Redesign Finally Live in US

    In early October, Sony revealed that they were finally set to update the PlayStation Store interface. Of all the firmware updates that have come to the PS3 over the years, this is one of the few things that hasn't seen much change. Unlike Microsoft's Xbox 360, it almost felt like it would just stay that way now that the system is six years old. During the announcement, Sony stated that it would come to Europe on October 17th and the US by October 23nd. Even if you weren't aware of what happened next, you probably didn't see any change to your PS3 even after the date passed. This is because after the redesign went live in Europe, consumers immediately began citing problems with it. These unforeseen issues caused Sony to rethink the incoming deployment of the site for US. They ended up postponing without giving any new dates. Why mention all this? Because today the saga ends (hopefully) as the PS Store has now been updated in the US to reflect other regions. It now looks more modern, but also features new things like being able to search by prices, auto-correcting search bar, and more. Boot up your PS3, give it a whirl, and let us know how you like/dislike it!
