The Drop: Week of February 18th 2013 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on Feb 17, 2013 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance takes the renowned Metal Gear franchise into exciting new territory by focusing on delivering an all-new action experience unlike anything that has come before. Combining world-class development teams at Kojima Productions and PlatinumGames, Metal Gear Rising brings two of the world’s most respected teams together with a common goal of providing players with a fresh synergetic experience that combines the best elements of pure action and epic storytelling, all within the expansive MG universe. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Developed through a partnership with Platinum Games and Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance pits cyborg against cyborg in battle that blazes past every human limit!

The main character, Raiden, was once feared as the child soldier “Jack the Ripper” on the front lines of the First Liberian Civil War. Now, his combat mastery is channeled through a cyborg body as the strikes from his high-frequency blade slice even massive assault drones in two. Raiden is contracted for VIP protection, military training and other duties by PMSCs (Private Military and Security Companies) in a developing country piecing itself back together after a bloody civil war. Little does he know that the stage is set for a clash with an enigmatic force of countless cyborgs.

Crysis 3 – Crysis 3 is a First-Person Shooter set within a frightening future New York City. The game is a sequel to the 2011 release, Crysis 2, continuing an unfolding adventure revolving around the symbiotic relationship between the wearer of the game’s iconic nanosuit, the current protagonist, and the memories of an earlier protagonist stored within the suit. Game features include sandbox shooter gameplay that allows players to choose their path, an upgradable nanosuit, expanded multiplayer options, an explosive arsenal of weapons, and improved graphics provided by the CryENGINE game engine.

Capcom Arcade Cabinet: Retro Game Collection – Capcom Arcade Cabinet offers you many of the greats from the Capcom gaming vaults all in one place. Browse through a library of classic games, now loaded with special features that extend the gaming fun. A “casual mode” geared towards newcomers and less score-minded players lets first-time gamers discover Capcom’s greats. Or, if you are a hardcore gamer, take on players from around the world in “score attack” and even play together in select titles that support online co-op!

Urban Trial Freestyle (Also for PS Vita) – A motorcycle stunt game, Urban Trials brings players to abandoned districts of a city where speed, agility and ability to improvise are the key to massive scores.

Demos

  • Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
  • Urban Trial Freestyle (PS3 & PSVita)

PlayStation Portable

Generation of Chaos 3: Pandora’s Reflection – Dark clouds blanket the withered skies and block out the sun; cracked earth and choking fog rule the land. This colorless world, showing no signs of life, is known as Hades. The barren land is blasted by chilling winds that cut to the bone … This is where we meet our heroes — Yuri, a young girl cursed with a disease draining her life away; and Claude, her protective older brother who will stop at nothing to save her. As they travel in search of a cure, they find themselves embroiled in a conflict that will determine the fate of the world and, just maybe, the fate of the siblings. They’ll lose old friends, meet new friends, and travel on a path that will lead them to the very doorstep of destiny…

Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi – After 260 years of samurai rule, the shogunate’s hold on the country began to weaken as men ostensibly loyal to the emperor began to sow chaos and dissent throughout the nation. The Shinsengumi was formed to combat this rising tide of violence, and to protect the shogun and the people from dangerous ronin. As the country inches close to all-out war, Chizuru travels to Kyoto to find her missing father. She encounters both danger and the Shinsengumi, in quick succession. After learning that the Shinsengumi are also looking for her father, Chizuru goes under their protection. However, they soon find themselves in the midst of political intrigue, supernatural power struggles, and much more as they search desperately for the answer they need.

I just read reviews for Metal Gear Rising and I cannot believe that they are this high. Sure, the gameplay was fun but seriously, a 4 hour campaign? That is what constitutes good these days? Play Far Cry 3. Much more value for your money. Cancel the pre-orders and tell these companies that we want quality and substance.

I’ve been giving a return to the bad service provided by Playstation, here in Latin America. I find it incomprehensible, since, on the verge of the play4, Latin America still has no psn ​​service, whether they realize some Latin American countries have a store, disguised as official, with service and shoddy uncomfortable (I mean platform, and that in general the staff are polite and efficient in solving problems) is absurd, that we allow such discrimination, worse for Colombia, Peru and perhaps few other countries, if you want to have the Store disguise, what sorry for our community that has failed to perceive such immoralities and misfeasance. The truth is that I bought the console for my son, because he insisted on the play, though he warned that at first glance the XBOX 360, presents most prestigious technology and know-how, unfortunately let my son decide.

MGR:R just fell off my radar. Sorry, but no digital, no sale from me. Why aren’t new releases mandatory for a digital release like the Vita? Is this game too large for a PSN release or something? I’m currently living overseas and if I have to wait to import this, I will just wait until it hits the bargain bin. Knowing Konami, they’ll probably release it digitally months from now at full price.

As of 9:36 CST, I have seen new content in the psp section as stated in a post above mine. Noticed tons of LBP karting outfits and the like. Alien Breed from last week is the transition point. Loads of new songs too. No plus updates yet, and other categories seem to be missing.
