Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on Oct 31, 2010 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Happy Halloween! Not only do I bring you this week’s new releases on your favorite PlayStation console, but I bring you a collection of last minute Halloween costume ideas. Zeus! Ares! Athena! Oh my. Your favorite mythological Greek God-killer, Kratos, returns on the PSP this week with God of War: Ghost of Sparta. Stayed tuned this week when we debut my latest video feature when I visit the set of “God of War: Game Director’s Live,” where the game directors of God of War reunite and dissect the making of their epic saga. David Jaffe’s and Cory Barlog’s PlayStation 2 classics God of War and God of War II are remastered in high definition and bring the Blades of Chaos to the PlayStation Network this week.

The-Drop-Main-Header

Not big on dressing up with you family’s ashes for Halloween? Maybe dressing up as the adorable EyePet is a good alternative to the blood spilling and vengeance of Kratos. Grab your PSP, PSP Camera and your EyePet and take your virtual critter out to the park this week, when EyePet: Your Virtual Pet comes scratching at your door. The PlayStation horizon is filled with games this week branching from the PlayStation 3, PSone and even the PlayStation 2. Ditch the candy corn and get ready for delicious PlayStation Halloween treats in this week’s The Drop.

PS3: James Bond 007: Blood Stone

Nothing is what it seems as each adventure reveals a deeper and more sinister conspiracy.

Blood Drive In Blood Drive, contestants must use their motorized death steeds of steel in a televised game show where drivers battle each other and hordes of revolting flesh eaters in an all-out fight to the death. Face undead frat boys, cops and strippers, each with their own special brand of death and devastation – and ways to die! While these rotting monsters wander the streets of a desert sin city craving sweet, succulent brains, your enemies have come equipped battle hardened armed vehicles, including heavily weaponized muscle cars, hot rods, and more.

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2The second game in this high-flying, fast-hitting, and intense versus battles series, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 promises over 90 characters from the massively popular anime franchise. Dragon Ball Z fans can rest assured that the destructible environment, and character trademark attacks and transformations will be true to the series.

Anyways, about 5 days left for an announcement until all hope for 2010 is lost.

Hopefully before or during SEMA a date can be given. Tell KY he’s done enough and that the rest of his master plan can wait until GT6. We’ll understand just fine.

Hey Rey, any news on the Fight: lights out? you said last week : “Expect more news and a solid release date on The Fight: Lights Out very soon. It’s hitting PlayStation Move sooner then you think!” and nothing yet?

And for the guys waiting for GT5, try the new need for speed hot pursuit coming in 2 weeks, the demo is really fun, plus its made by Criterion so you know its going to be good.

+ StarFoxMania on November 1st, 2010 at 8:07 am said:

wow, I cannot believe how much people whine. It makes me sad. The only entity that should be ashamed here is you impatient freaks, not Sony. I would rather have myself play GT5 this week as well, just like you, but this thread has gone a bit too far with the METHODS of complaining. Maybe complaining is not so bad, but how you go about it, sometimes makes a heck of a lot of difference.

I just want to say to Polyphony Digital. regardless of the pressure, make sure the game is EXACTLY what you intend it to be. I’ve played too many games with ridiculous game-breaking glitches lately, exactly because of developer/publisher greed releasing it way before the project is finished. The testing phases seem almost skipped nowadays. I DO NOT MIND waiting! My Logitech G25/Evolution racing chair is not complaining either :)

+ fijski8 on November 1st, 2010 at 8:23 am said:

Wow. People rated this blog bad over GT5. Ever hear of “good things come to those who wait”

I guess I must be the only person alive who doesn’t really care THAT much about GT5. Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to buy it first thing but the delays just don’t bother me as much as it is seemingly bothering everyone else.
I have to laugh at all these comments saying, “YOUR TREATING US GT5 FANS LIKE CRAP AND YOUR LOSING US!!!!”. No, they are probably not losing anyone. I bet money that 9/10 people who made similar comments are going to whip right out to buy that game the minute it hits the shelves. So stop fronting people. And unless you are a game dev or work for Sony then I am pretty sure you have no idea as to what goes into the development of a game like GT5. You don’t know all the factors that could cause these delays your all whining about. You just want your wittle game and you want it wight nows! =(
Cry me a river. If Sony would have released the game way earlier and it had tons of glitches and flaws you’d all be on here saying how they should have treated the game better and took their time with it like it deserves.
Not only is IT JUST A GAME people but it’s a game that your going to go out and buy regardless. I know it, you know it, and Sony knows it. =)

Hey Sony, I hear people might want a release date to some game that rhymes with Man Furismo Jive. Just in case you hadn’t noticed.

But seriously, this is pretty ridiculous. Holding back a new release date to you’re biggest and only holiday release?

Theres tons of other great racing games out there as well as non-racing games to tie you over.Dont U people have school or a job to go to – get a life -A REAL LIFE…!!! OR why dont U hop into your own car and go to your local mini-mall & do a few laps after hours in the dark. Maybe if youre lucky, Mall security can chase u around. Or if youre REALLY LUCKY, local police can chase U up the PARKADE to see who gets to the top level first…!!!

The delays don’t bother me, as it shouldn’t bother many complaining on this board. But at the same time I feel sony/pd should stop giving the community bs release dates. Don’t lie to the community, give honest answers. There wouldn’t be any complaining if sony simply said “we don’t know when the game will be released, but hopefully it will release sometime this year”. People would still complain, but the ratio wouldn’t be so high :P

Anyways, I’m not really geeked about the game, but I look forward to purchasing it.
