The Drop: Week of May 13th 2013 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on May 12, 2013 // Senior Social Media Specialist

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within.

Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour in Metro: Last Light on PSN and PS3 Blu-ray. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

Metro: Last Light

(Also on PS3 Blu-ray) – The sequel to 2010’s critically acclaimed cult classic Metro 2033. Experience thrilling combat with an exotic arsenal of hand-made weaponry against deadly foes – both human and mutant – and use stealth to launch attacks under the cover of darkness.

Metro Last Light Logo

Explore the post-apocalyptic world of the Moscow Metro, one of the most immersive, atmospheric game worlds ever created. Fight for every bullet and every last breath in a claustrophobic blend of survival horror and FPS gameplay. Next generation technology boasting stunning lighting and physics sets a new graphical benchmark on both console and PC

Dust 514

(PSN Exclusive) – Dust 514 is a free-to-play first-person shooter that’s being incorporated into the EVE universe, acting essentially an action MMO for consoles. The game offers a mix of first-person shooting and real-time strategy gameplay where you play as a marine with a rifle running around on the ground.

2500x1200-Vista

It’s not only set in the EVE universe, it’s actually connected to EVE. The Dust battlefields will determine who controls territory within EVE’s world. The EVE Online players will have to contract players of Dust to go in and destabilize territory.

Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery (PSN Exclusive / PS Vita) – Jacob isn’t one to mix with other kids, he prefers the great outdoors and the company of his parents, so spending his summer with a load of weird kids at Summer Camp isn’t exactly his idea of fun, However, when he stumbles upon the mysterious Bigfoot, his summer takes on a whole new twist. Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery is an episodic adventure brimming with weird and wonderful characters and a host of brain teasing puzzles.

Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny – Aden and Sonja, two lifelong friends, live a tranquil life on Fenith Island until they’re struck by a mysterious curse: they awaken to find both of their souls are now trapped in the same body! On top of this unusual calamity, the Fenith they knew is gone, replaced by a strange island populated with unfamiliar faces. Only by exploring this new world will they be able to solve the mystery of this curse and save their beloved Island.

During the course of their journey, Aden and Sonja will be aided by a colorful cast of characters, as well as take command of the towering golem Ymir. Using their newfound giant friend, they’ll cross vast seas, discover hidden islands and dungeons packed with riches, and battle fearsome monsters of the deep!

Star Wars Pinball

Star Wars Pinball (PS3/PS Vita) – Star Wars Pinball is a collection of tables developed with authentic Star Wars moments. Each table features a different iconic moment from the Star Wars universe, with interactive 3D characters, and unique gameplay.

Adding even more features to the Star Wars Pinball experience, this stand-alone version allows you to choose to support the Galactic Empire or the Rebel Alliance with your high scores as the Star Wars Pinball community fights for the Balance of the Force! An experience point progression system lets players move up the ranks based on Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance support. Star Wars Pinball contains the first three tables — Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars — and additional tables can be purchased and added in as they are released. For those who already own the Star Wars Pinball add-on set for Zen Pinball 2, you can re-download the stand-alone version at no extra cost and enjoy these exciting new features that will have you flipping that steel ball for the fate of the galaxy!

Tiny Token Empires – Tiny Token Empire is an turn-based strategy game. The player plays one of the five major ancient empires: Rome, Greece, Egypt, Persia, or Carthage. By developing cities and armies, and annexing new territories, the player gradually expands his power over the world! But Tiny Token Empires is also a “casual” strategy game that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It contains a crazy comical universe: goofball gods, super cute mythological monsters, clown legionnaires, and much more.

Demos

  • Resident Evil Revelations
  • Star Wars Pinball
  • Tiny Token Empires

ManhuntPlayStation 2 Classic

Manhunt – A violent action game from Rockstar, Manhunt is the story of James Earl Cash, a man previously thought dead who wakes up in a town filled with deadly gangs. Guided only by the whispers of a man named “The Director” through his earpiece, Cash must find whatever he can to survive the night.

Players must make strategic choices as to which weapons to use, ranging from silent and stealthy to loud and destructive. Everyday items may be the key to your survival, as plastic bags become instruments of strangulation, and shards of glass your defensive weapons. Escape the nightmare that is Carcer City and maybe you’ll learn the identity of the mysterious “Director”.

Pretty decent drop. Was not expecting Metro Last Light at all. Manhunt is a very nice addition to the classics & Resident Evil Revelations demo is gotta be my highlight for this drop. Will definitely try it out.

@6 I guess they will wait like for august and then say “Hey guys its PS Vita PS1 compability update anniversary! here you go Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon titles” , which would mean it took a YEAR to make it compatable! not even mention that EU customers got them from DAY 1, and considering we are 99% have same version of PS1 emulator, means there was not even a attempt to bring it to US customers.

Any chance of Velocity Ultra making it onto the list before Tuesday?

With the exception of Manhunt and Star Wars, not much there for me. Since I already have the first three Star Wars tables and I don’t absolutely have to have Manhunt this week, it will be another money-saver, which is just fine with me.

What! No Spyro or Crash Bandicoot PS1 classics for vita yet? What about more compatible PSP titles for PSVITA?

Oooh goody, just what we need are more crappy FPS!

why do they make FPS? They’re all the same shallow experiences and they suck. FPS have really ruined the video game industry. You guys aren’t bored of these tedious boring games yet?

I was looking through the store saw Sanctum 2 listed never heard of it so looked it up and it said it was releasing the 15th, but obviously its not listed here. Will it release next week?

Crash is one of the most popular PsOne games on the store, why is Dora getting compatibility on the Vita but not Crash? PLEASE JUST PUT THE CRASH BANDICOOT GAMES ON THE VITA PSN STORE!!!!

Wasn’t expecting Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery to be out this soon, they’re haven’t been any gameplay video for it, may wait for a review b4 picking it up, but will pick up manhunt.

+ komentra on May 12th, 2013 at 5:58 pm said:

Was going to purchase Manhunt but I’m assuming it’s going to be $10 and Amazon is having a sale right now for the digital version for $5 and since it’s a older title pretty much any PC in the last 7 years can run it.

I’m stoked for The Warriors release though and am hoping Metro doesn’t suck.

Will definitely check out the Revelations demo and compare it with the 3DS and Wii U versions. I don’t have a Vita yet, but it sucks people still can’t play Crash or Spyro. I’m assuming there are some licensing issues.


34

Crash Team Racing for Vita. All Crash’s games and Spyro too.


35

I saw on the Dev Facebook for Sanctum 2 that it was out this week. Has it been moved back or does it release this week?


36

+ marporte on May 12th, 2013 at 6:59 pm said:

The developers purposely took out the hardcore Ranger Mode out of Metro Last Light. If you buy the game new at retailers at full price you don’t get it and you have to pay an extra 5 dollars for a hard mode with better AI. If I buy it on PSN will it include Ranger Mode or do I have to pony up an extra 5 dollars just to get the hard mode that should already be in the game like it was in the original Metro 2033?

Manhunt is good and I’ve excited for the new Metro. Does anyone know whats gonna be added for the IGC. I want pinball arcade as soon as possible so I can buy the twilight zone table.

+ veryhoudini11 on May 12th, 2013 at 7:04 pm said:

Crash and Spyro aren’t owned by Sony, I think sony still has the rights for publishing the first 3 crash’s but to me I think Activision at this point has alot of say in both franchises. So I think Activision would be the best people to ask about this, now that they own both IPs


39

+ ZaGe-zAiKaNo on May 12th, 2013 at 7:08 pm said:

@veryhoudini11

I think Knytt Underground will be the next freebie or Germinator.

+ veryhoudini11 on May 12th, 2013 at 7:17 pm said:

scratch that last comment. im pretty sure sony has publishing rights for the first three spyros and first three crash. sony even put crash on their sony ericson xperia cell phone, that has the dual shock style controllers as a slide out insted of a keyboard. that smartphone comes with crash… so im not too sure what the issue is but if anything due to the popularity of both franchises its probably is still something to do with activision or getting devs to make it compatible with ps vita. either way it would be really smart to put it on vita, weren’t those two franchises the most popular games on psOne if im not mistaken?

No Crash on Vita
No Spyro on Vita
No FFV on Vita
No Crackle on Vita (suppose to come summer 2012)
No Crunchyroll on Vita. (suppose to come by the end of 2012)
No Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault on Vita (half a year later and I’m still waiting and I bought the ps3 version for no reason cause i only want it to play on my vita)
The list of things I just named are things way overdue for Vita. What is really going on. *smh*

I really want to know more about Jacob Jones & the Bigfoot Mystery. I can’t believe they haven’t released a better trailer yet. I’d like to get an idea of how much story there is to it, and if it’s an explorable world.

Though I am sick of seeing the weekly, “Crash/Spryo on Vita?” weekly posts, I really have to agree with these guys.

It’s obvious this will NEVER happen, but I think you should give us a reason….I.E.:
“Sony really doesn’t care what you want…Take a hike!”
“Sony is planning to sell a Crash Bandicoot Trilogy Vita game and giving it away for free makes no sense!”
“Sony is having trouble obtaining the licensing from Universal*”
*I think that’s who owns the current IP.

Then people can at least accept this and move on.

When you think about it, Crash Bandicoot is the Mario of the PlayStation. Can you imagine if Nintendo released tons of Virtual Console games for the Wii, but neglected to release a single Super Mario Bros. NES game on it. People would be a tad angry.

Just my 2 cents.

Star Wars Pinball (PS3/PS Vita) Stand alone version…

What?! So the $9.99 pack is now worthless and I have to buy it again to play the extra modes?
Please give us more info when releasing this type of thing. All it does is anger/confuse the people who already shelled out money for it and people who didn’t probably don’t care to buy the new version either.

I hope Zen Pinball is not getting greedy so soon. I was just starting to like them.

Dear, Sony

Ya’ll are some big fat LIARS, and i’m not tring to be a jerk but its true. Where is the HULU and CRACKLE apps you promised for the VITA. Where is the freinds app and Imagineinstruments app you promised? What happened with BIOSHOCK for the VITA? Where is the Ratchet and Crank Full Frontal assualt? Its a shame that Sony is making its own Console fail, by lying to its own customers!
