The PlayStation Recap: What We’re Reading

Justin Massongill's Avatar + Posted by Justin Massongill on Nov 24, 2012 // SCEA Social Media Specialist

Turkey! Stuffing! Various types of pie! By now you’re probably nearly recovered from Thursday’s feast (and the subsequent trip to grab one of the many available PS3 and PS Vita Black Friday deals), and ready to catch up on some gaming news from what turned out to be a surprisingly busy week on PS.Blog.

This week saw new LittleBigPlanet outfits from one of my favorite PS Vita games head to LittleBigPlanet, a new Zen creation based on one of the most popular story arcs in recent comics history, a look at the second of four games coming to next year’s Sportsfriends compilation (Kickstart it here), a guest post from legendary game designer Warren Spector, and lots, lots more. Build yourself a leftover turkey sandwich, pour a glass of cranberry juice, kick back, and catch up on the week in PlayStation.

What are you playing this weekend?

  • I’m playing: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Persona 4 Golden, Sine Mora
  • I’m watching: Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace (so I can catch Skyfall this weekend)
  • I’m listening to: The PlayStation Blogcast 052, The Unfinished Swan Soundtrack

Cool I didn’t know that the Recap and What We’re Reading were together now. Nice little idea you got there.

This post looks very classy, well done.
You forgot the “What Sid’s not playing” thing though with “Journey” right after

    Classy is what I was going for, so mission accomplished!

    My strategy re: Sid now is to avoid talking about Journey completely, since bugging him about it daily hasn’t worked yet.

Great Voltron-sized post Justin. Next step I think should be making the PlayStation Recap the Top Story on the Blog. Just a suggestion ;)

I’m Playing: God of War II, God of War III, and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

I’m Reading: Claymore Manga Volume 20-21.

I’m Listening to: Official PlayStation Blogcast Episode 052: A Plus Sized Thanksgiving.

to deathshadow799
Far Cry 3 is scheduled for release in stores on Dec 4th. I pre-ordered a PS3 version.
If you go to the PSN Store, it lists Far Cry 3 as “Disc only”, and no price is listed.

    What do you think about All-Stars so far? I’m cleaning house with PaRappa; his Lv2 is too good.

@ Butters360 Reading Claymore huh? I liked the anime. Have you seen it? I was wondering how the Manga compares.

@Justin The new format is clean and well done.

+ Butters360 on November 24th, 2012 at 10:27 pm said:

@8

I’ve seen the anime and liked it for being faithful up until episode 21, then Jr goes in a completely different direction. It ends up losing a LOT. I’ve always been the type if I like the anime, buy the manga as you have the complete story.

    I haven’t seen a good anime since FMA: Brotherhood, and before that it was Death Note. You think Claymore is worth looking into for a casual anime watcher?

Hm so is the “What We Read” list been shortened down to keep in line with the Top 10 posts of the week or there just wan’t what many links? Overall though very neatly organized! hopefully the PS store will follow suit soon :)

Kinda like how the two old Blog posts are combined into one! More convenient!

I’m Playing: Borderlands 1 PC(Steam sale for 5 bucks!), soon to be AC3 on PS3, and soon to be PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale!

What I’m reading: Any rumors about TimeSplitters, really. New petition for an HD Collection sponsored by Crytek. https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/crytek-uk-create-a-timesplitters-hd-collection

Other than that, busy with school, holidays and a girlfriend!

@ Justin,

Yeah! If you’re a casual anime watcher I would suggest Claymore and wash it down with Guyver: The Bio Boosted Armor.

I’m looking forward to a couple games releasing on PSN in the first half of December, and I’m curious if there are any scheduled blog posts/interviews planned with the developers as of right now? The games are Guardians of Middle Earth and the console version WWE WrestleFest.

I would really love to read or watch interviews with both, if by chance you’re fishing for ideas for posts in December.

im playing PS ALL STARS VITA.
Im watching NFL SUNDAY TICKET :)

good reads, i read alot of that during the week. i love ps all stars, i tell people it has the complexity like street fighter, once you figure it out, you can really enjoy the game much much more. i dont think it’s comparable to the other game.

finally said bye bye to my 60gb ps3..upgraded it for the 500gb…it was such a bitter feeling. but i feel like i made the best possible choice.

@justin i truly recommend you to watch claymore because the anime is pretty good.i wished myself that the anime was still ongoing because it is just that good and the plot is not kiddie as some anime are.think of it as a female version of berserk but much much better plot wise!

@Justin Only thing that I would like to see added is perhaps a “See more” link at the bottom of “What We Read” list for those who want to see the entire list. And how is Sine Mora? I found the demo a little difficult..

I’m playing: sine mora, persona4g, cod declassified

Really persona4g will be my GOTY this game is just to great to miss, well the voice acting is weird whenever Japanese names are sounded but other than that it’s okay

On the other hand, cod declassified makes me forget how bad it is resistance, coming from the same developer. Nihilistic made a greatest game ever they have made (because they rename nihilistic after this)

Proud new owner of both a PS3 and PS Vita this week. Really blown away by Playstation Plus and the great selection of games. Synergy between the two systems is pretty boss as well.

I’m watching: Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy and Regular Show

I’m listening: Foster The People, M83 and Underworld

Liking this layout. It would be nice for a “read more” or something to see more of the “what we’re reading”. Since only 10 isn’t that much of what’s going on online.

You should reach out to the developers (WaterMelon) of Pier Solar HD to get the updated version they’ve got a kickstarter for on PS Vita. Because they have no plans for anything PS, PS3 makes sense since it’s hard to develop for. But it couldn’t be too difficult for Vita to nab the game.

Justin, I really like how you’ve redesigned the various blog layouts this year. You’ve really made a positive impact so it’s nice you’ve been “rewarded” with your own weekly blog. Now please, put your eye for streamlined clarity to the new store. It’s very glitzy but needs to be made more simply functional again.
