Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on Feb 03, 2013 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time marks the franchise’s biggest and most ambitious game yet with completely re-designed characters, worlds two times the size of those in previous Sly games, more vibrant and dense environments, and real-world physics allowing for a realistic gameplay experience. Staying true to the franchise’s signature gameplay style of blending stealth, thievery, exploration, and combat, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will take players on a thrilling journey around the world filled with epic boss battles, action-packed missions, engaging puzzle elements, new stealth moves and much more for both the PS3 and PS Vita.

Dead Space 3 is a third-person shooter with survival-horror gameplay elements that challenges players to work singly, or with a friend to stop the viral/monster Necromorph outbreak. The game features the return of franchise hero, Isaac Clarke and the necessity of his weapons making abilities and precision skill in using them against in order to defeat enemies. Other game features include, drop-in/out co-op support, the additional character John Carver, evolved Necromorph enemies, a new cover system, side missions, and more. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customise weapons and survival tools. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague forever, but first Isaac must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness. Facing deadlier evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s. Play together with a friend or go it alone as Isaac Clarke using the seamless new drop in, drop out co-op functionality. Each mode offers unique story elements and gameplay.

Here Comes The Boom – Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old, apathetic high school teacher. When budget cutbacks threaten to cancel some of the school’s programs and lay off its music teacher (Henry Winkler), Scott creates a scheme to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter.

I originally wanted to buy Thieves in Time on PSN, but ended up pre-ordering a Blu-Ray copy at a local retailer because I wanted the pre-order bonuses. Will there be a way for us to get those bonuses if we buy it through the Playstation Store?

I like Sly. Bentley’s minigame should be fun. Also, Fist of the North Star 2 (I think this one isn’t getting a disc version?)! Cool week, now gotta wait on info on sales and PS Plus.

Is it that much of a hassle to list each week’s new DLC in the Drop as well?

@dragon_night

Kingdom Hearts HD is being released March 14 in Japan, so in what multiverse do you think they will bring the PS2 classic to the PSN store, when they are already releasing a remake?


34

+ passivefamiliar on February 3rd, 2013 at 2:12 pm said:

No search function for download list yet? Also, the EU store has a sale on all finalfantasy games…i hope we are getting it. Last time it happened i didn’t jump on it, and ive been putting off buying a couple classics until another sale. Mostly because i won’t play them much not for moneys sake.

Sadly not to happy with the new sly. It is really well done, really stuck to the way the other games were. It just didnt click for me. Might pick it up when its on sale, but im in no rush. Same with dead space. Unless the co-op ends up being awesome. Not a bad drop though. Still waiting on a few older aditions. Give me FFX, kingdom hearts, orphen scion of sorcery, and megaman x. My credit card bill will take a hit but i will buy all that. (I understand how it works, not ranting just voicing desires. Except about the search/filter for my download list. Why sony? Why no filter at least?)

As much as I would love to get Sly, I don’t think I can support cross-buy until you guys give some answers about Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault Vita. I don’t care if it’s been delayed…it would just be nice to know, since you know…I did buy the product and all.
