The PlayStation Recap – Avengers Assemble Edition

Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on May 05, 2012 // Senior Manager, Social Media

I’m running late for a matinee screening for The Avengers, so we’ll keep it short. This week, SideQuest Studios revealed a scintillating new trailer for PSN strategy RPG Rainbow Moon, LightBox Interactive showed off the full Trophy list and pre-order bonuses for Starhawk, Sony Santa Monica Studios shared a new dev diary for PS Move spellbinder Sorcery, Dakko Dakko release its new minis title Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims (free for Plus members this month!), Media Molecule shared a new batch of top LittleBigPlanet creations, Free Realms celebrated its third birthday, and PlayStation Blog announced a big Toronto-based community meetup this Tuesday that will feature a host of playable games: Retro City Rampage, Sound Shapes, Dyad and many more.

What are you playing this weekend? Will you be joining us in Toronto on Tuesday? Sound off in the comments.

    I’m playing FFXIII-2 (got it for $25 BRAND NEW off of amazon.com with the gold box event deals) as well as Mortal Kombat on the Vita, so much fun, it may have not as great graphics as other Vita games, but definitely an awesome game.
