The Drop: Week of July 16th 2012 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on Jul 15, 2012 // Senior Social Media Specialist

On PSN this week, experience a transcendental sensory overload in Dyad. Race through a reactive audio-visual tube creating a harmonious synthesis of colour and sound as you hook, graze, and lance enemies to master Dyad’s 27 unique levels.

Embark on a mind-altering interactive journey through Dyad’s Game Mode in order to prepare yourself for Trophy Mode’s tactical freakout variations wherein a Platinum Trophy awaits only the most skillful. Or choose to sit back and chill with Dyad’s hallucinogenic Remix Mode on this week’s The Drop.

PlayStation Network

DYAD – Dyad is an abstract racing/shooter/puzzle hybrid where players move forward by manipulating other vessels on the track. Dyad also explores the mind state of the player — the game is designed to create a strong sense of flow, upon which it offers different contemplative approaches.

The topics of contemplation, called Mantras, create a thought-based metagame on top of the audio-visual gameplay. An independently-developed project created by Shawn McGrath, Dyad is made for play on PlayStation 3 consoles.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles – Arm yourself against the horrors of the city in this sequel to the gun shooting game Umbrella Chronicles. Darkside Chronicles takes place in Resident Evil 2′s Racoon City. It’s September 29, 1998, and the city has turned to hell due to the effects of the T-virus. Players take control of Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy to deal with the undead. Only this time, the enemy is not the Umbrella Corporation … instead, players venture into the unexplored areas of the Resident Evil story, along with the darker passages of the characters’ histories.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles – Umbrella Chronicles takes place from the first person as your characters move through a fully 3D mansion. This action/shooter hybrid reveals the back story behind the fall of the Umbrella Corporation by exploring locations from past Resident Evil 0, 1, 2 and 3 as well as new never-before-seen locations, such as Umbrella’s stronghold.

Record of Agarest War 2 – Following up in a series by acclaimed Japanese role-playing game designers RED and Idea Factory, Record of Agarest War 2 features all-new strategy RPG gameplay, HD graphics, and bonus mini-games! The Limited Edition release enhances the experience with a unique set of items for franchise fans.

One day, the world was enveloped by a mysterious blinding light. The destruction it caused was terrible, even as the light itself was sublime in its beauty, and it made those who witnessed the awesome display think of the unrestrained rage and fury of the divine. The central continent, from where the light is believed to have originated from, went silent, while at the same time demons began to spread throughout the world like a plague. Amongst the survivors of the catastrophe, that fateful day became known as the “Day of Light.”

I love PS2 games, so many i still Haven’t played- thus I got the system and go on Glyde. I still wanna get Mana Khemia 2. Loved the first game. Oh, and I agree with North. If you’re unhappy with the choices of Sony, and discontent with the gaming industry- go play basketball. 0.0 I like Rainbows and unicorns. Seriously, just be patient. I remember a time back in 2005 when the 360 was released. So many people lined up to get the damn system, then so many cried at the lack of games.

Looking forward to Record of Agarest War 2. I however will buy the Blu-Ray, but putting another RPG on the store is wonderful.

It seems silly, but I see the “is that all” on the first page a few times. I harken back to a few weeks ago, when the Raymond issue hit and then people complained about being lied to. So the Blog took it upon themselves to only post in the drop the confirmed titles. So now people complain about “is this all”.

I realize it isn’t the same people who complained about one and then a few weeks later complained about the repercussions of what they asked for, but it seems you can’t please them all.

Although I think that there has been a lot of unwarranted “whining” going on (especially as of late), I’ve also been seeing a lot of “sucking up”. At the end of the day, HONEST FEEDBACK is what Sony wants/needs; from its consumers. Often I think like to think of Sony as the perfect “girlfriend” *will elaborate further in a future post*. The claim of said “perfection” is based solely upon Sony’s performance; but especially in relation to the “other girls” I know. One is a GOLD*wink wink*digging wh0r3 and the other, although we used to date (my first love in fact), just isn’t “mature” enough for me :D. I used that cute euphemism to say this: relationships require honest feedback to remain healthy…

Is Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 going to be released on the PS store??????

To those trying to point out that the drop is never the full update, your correct. Only problem with that is it DOES list everything NEW. Only things that won’t be on this list will be sales and price updates, no new content. If anything sometimes content is dropped between the drop and the actual update, never the other way around. With that being said, this is a poor update but I didn’t really expect much more this time of the year, seems about the norm. They really should have a better summer sale, maybe they will in the next while but if not that’s another thing lacking.

No, what’s REALLY annoying, is these people saying QUIT COMPLAINING! People have a right to voice their opinion. Otherwise, this forum wouldn’t exist. So suck it up buttercup! If ya don’t voice your opinion, things won’t change.

I’m curious as to why Jet Set Radio hasn’t been released yet. It seemed like it was supposed to be a late June release and now it’s practically off the radar.

@108: That’s not true at all…


115

+ Elvick_ on July 16th, 2012 at 3:17 pm said:

@78: That’s not true, a lot more are… but at the same time, ideas have issues appearing. I’ve been trying to submit ideas for weeks with no duplicates of them but no… yet the only idea I’ve ever been able to get through, has at least two duplicates submitted (and accepted) since mine. So there are at least 3 on the same thing. :/

So they don’t actually do anything with it anymore. Or if they do, they do it REALLY badly.

You know what i love about people, i love that people complain about stuff like not good updates for the ps 3 when in reality the ps 3 has a really good update just these people don’t seem to want to look right in front of them to see this..

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/07/16/playstation-plus-update-launch-week-discounts-and-more/

i swear if this article was jason voorhees your computer keyboard and monitor would be covered in your own blood!

it was right on the front page! Right on the same page the drop was on.

So instead of complaining no this or that try looking at the other articles on the blog!

oh and @49 you can play psp games on the vits the digital downloded games n ot all of them but my friend is currently playing the psp version of persona 3 on his vita

For everyone wanting to sort their games alphabetically… If you go to the PS3 recovery menu and rebuild the database, it will do just that.

Hey sony can you put Sonic adventure 2 on the PSN store it would be nice. For the PS Vita owners might like Sonic adventure made available for them to buy, or if Sonic A2 got available for it, and mabey score bord or online multiplayer.
