The Drop

Steel yourself. One of the most punishing names in gaming makes a brutal return to PlayStation this week, igniting a joyous fire in the hearts of hardcore RPG fans. Dark Souls II comes to PS3 this week, bearing the haunting aesthetics and teeth-gnashing difficulty that gamers have come to expect. Wield swords, shields, crackling spells, and powerful potions in an effort to thwart death itself.

For those interested in the competitive side of gaming, look no further than TowerFall Ascension, which hits PS4 on Tuesday. This addictive multiplayer arena pits archers against each other in heart-pounding battles where a single arrow can spell the difference between victory and defeat. With blissfully simple play and enormously rich strategies, TowerFall Ascension celebrates the thrill of couch competition. Ascension also features brand new Quest and Trials modes for a more robust experience.

For a complete list of games coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

Amazon lists Putty Squad as coming out on PS3, PS4, and Vita this week. Apparently that game has a storied history. It was supposed to be an Amiga game, but never came out, yet it received reviews.

Already purchased the digital copy of Dark Souls 2 and inFamous SS. I really want to support Towerfall, but I promised myself that I wouldn’t keep expanding my already massive backlog.

(Why is inFamous1 $29 and inFamous2 $19. My Blu-ray broke and I really would like that game digitally, but not for $29)

    I understand your concern, but FYI TowerFall is a pretty straight-forward multiplayer game, so it’s best when you have buddies or family over to play with you. Doesn’t need to taunt you from the sidelines!

Hi Ryan
Do you know if Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will be avalaible for digital pre order?
And if it is, do you know if the digital pre-order will have the same bonuses of the retail one?

Just wondering when Minecraft is going to Drop for Vita and Playstation 4? There is too much stuff in March. With Dark Souls 2, Metal Gear Solid 5, Second Sun, Boarderlands 2, and soo much more. Just wanting to know cause I am fighting for Vita space now on my 32 gig stick.

My guess about the FFX l X-2 HD Remaster Preorder is that I have to ask square right?

Regardless, this week is gonna be nice. Keep putting out content like this and its money well spent.

Having Dark Souls 2 pre-ordered, I hope some of the gripes from streamers about the game are not game shattering.

Hope everyone is ready to die this week, Dark Souls 2 will be here. I wish I could buy it, but happy I can rent it.

Dark Souls 2 for PS4 would have nice and when mercenary kings (sorry if spelled wrong) is coming out? Plus I the Japan PSN Store has a game called Overdrive (don’t know the full name) but I like to see a English copy, because I know 360 got it and thats the last place I want to go to get it.

I am tired of this. PS4 consistently gets a raw deal. You continuously release games that don’t even come close to showing the the power of the PS4, while they drop blockbusters for the PS3. I would like to see Dark Souls 2 on the PS4. It didn’t take long to get Tomb Raider on the PS4. Everyone knows the next gen consoles are here. Why are they not producing PS3 titles on the PS4?
