Greetings, friends. The name’s Justin — I’ve been skulking behind the scenes here at PlayStation.Blog for a few months now, helping to get posts put together and looking extra-slick before they reach your fatigued eyeballs. See how game thumbnails are tucked neatly in with the text in recent PlayStation Store Updates, for example? Yep, that was me.
You may have heard me on a PlayStation Blogcast or two, but otherwise I’ve kept a pretty low profile since I started here. That changes today! Well, sort of. I’m taking over the weekend Recap post, where I’ll recount the week’s most-read PlayStation.Blog posts (read below for the full list). Taking this post over from Sid, I know I have a lot to live up to — I’ll try not to disappoint.
Last week, we proposed we roll the “What We Read” recap into this one, to form one giant, unstoppable, Voltron-esque Recap. You all seemed to agree that this was a good plan, so we’re going to do that starting next week. We’ve got an idea of how we want to implement it, and we think it’s going to fit perfectly in here.
With the formalities out of the way, let’s talk videogames.
I grabbed a copy of Lollipop Chainsaw on sale recently, and I’m surprised I didn’t get to it sooner! Exploding with style (and zombie bits), a fun, upgradeable combat system, and one of the most ridiculous stories I’ve seen in gaming. I loved every minute! I’m also gearing up for my fourth playthrough of Journey in honor of its multiple nominations in this year’s VGA’s. Toss in a bit of Persona 4 Golden love on my PS Vita, and my week has been pretty well set.
What are you playing this week?
- I’m playing: Lollipop Chainsaw, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Persona 4 Golden
- I’m watching: Season 3 of The Walking Dead, The PlayStation All-Stars Intro on repeat
- I’m reading: The Elements of Style (Gotta try to get on Sid’s literary level)
- I’m listening to: Trifonic‘s new album, The PlayStation Blogcast’s One-Year Extravaganza
