Before we get started: PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD! Yes!
Don’t miss this in-depth interview with PS4 system architect Mark Cerny, conducted by our European counterpart Fred Dutton. Gran Turismo 6’s pre-order bonuses got an official reveal, we looked back on year one of PlayStation Plus’ Instant Game Collection, and Ready at Dawn revealed new details about The Order: 1886.
I’ve had a very 80’s week, starting with the release of Hotline Miami on PS3 and PS Vita (ten bucks nets you both versions!). I just finished the game for the first time, and… I’m confused. If anyone wants to point me toward an explanation of the ending, I’d appreciate it (no spoilers in the comments though, please).
Speaking of PS Vita: Muramasa Rebirth, the revamped new version of the acclaimed side-scrolling classic, is out now as well. With Hotline finished, this one’s up next.
I was recently introduced to the music of Kavinsky, whose track “Nightcall” features on 2011’s 80’s-inspired Drive, and that’s made it into my regular driving playlist. A full-trilogy marathon of Back to the Future rounded out my 80’s week, and now I’m ready to return to the present, and indeed the future when PS4 is released later this year (got your pre-order in yet?)
What are you playing this weekend?
- I’m playing: Hotline Miami, Muramasa Rebirth
- I’m watching: Back to the Future (Trilogy marathon!)
- I’m listening to: PlayStation Blogcast 079, Jamiroquai, Kavinsky
