The Drop

This week is not for the faint of heart! Slender: The Arrival hits PS3 this Tuesday, alongside the strategic and exhilarating CastleStorm Definitive Edition.

Slender: The Arrival is an adaptation of the original horror phenomenon, forcing players to face the chilling entity known as Slender Man. This collaboration features a brand new storyline, enhanced visuals, and a new way to experience survival horror. Dark rooms and quality headphones come highly recommended for this one, folks.

If that sounds a touch too scary, CastleStorm Definitive Edition brings its unique blend of tower defense and brawling to PS4. Build up your dream castle, but be ready if and when it comes crashing down.

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

Hey Ryan, have u heard of Operation Kos-Mos, us Xenosaga fans are trying to get Harada of Tekken to make an HD collection of the trilogy, we just have to rally up the fans.


+ Sonicfan11589 on September 21st, 2014 at 8:35 am said:

If possible I would love to see these added to the PS2 classics especially since at least some of them are on the Japanese PSN.
-Virtua Fighter 4 (Vanilla version) I actually like the stage design and music better compared to VF4: Evo
-Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution (It is superior to the vanilla version but it be nice to have both on PSN)
-Bloody Roar 3
-Bloody Roar 4

Also for PS1 Classics:
-Tomb Raider Chronicles
-Fear Effect
-Fear Effect:Retro Helix
Europe has had these PS1 classics for some time, I’m glad we finally got Gex: Enter the Gecko. I know they were made by Eidos.

Can we see some more ps2 games that’s better than the ones that we are geting now. I really want to see games like:
Burnout Revenge
Nfl street 2
Nascar thunder 2004 or Nascar total team control 2006
Its so many ps2 games i use to enjoy but the ones i just name was my favorites. I would buy these games in a heart beat if i see them in the store.


+ txwolf63 on September 21st, 2014 at 9:57 am said:

How many times are we suppose to buy ps3 games ported to ps4,indie games from ps3 and just crap with ps4 plus. who needs plus on ps4, big 1080p indie machine. Six months ago xbox games with gold was crap compared to Plus. Now Games with gold is golden over plus. No firmware updates and nothing that the ps4 can do over ps3 except look pretty and some 1080p games. Back to Mario cart 8, smash bros and bayonetta1 and 2


+ LightTriforce on September 21st, 2014 at 9:58 am said:

So I’m guessing there’s going to be a few Disney PS2 classics then? Well sounds great. Can’t wait to get Arcana Heart 3: Love Max and Slender: The Arrival.

Also I think you guys can ask Atlus to port Thousand Arms onto the PS Store?


+ Remmy8199 on September 21st, 2014 at 10:22 am said:

Once again my wallet is safe. Seriously though, we could really use some new CLASSIC rpg’s or something. I’m getting bored with most of what’s available because you guys hardly ever put any new ones on the store except the usual Atlus/Square Enix sales.

They aren’t missing Natural Doctrine from this list. The game got pushed back by a week. Now it’s supposed to come out on Sept. 30 instead of Sept. 23 as initially announced.

Really looking forward to it!


+ Sonicfan11589 on September 21st, 2014 at 11:05 am said:

I agree about Crisis Core: FF7, I’m playing Theatrythm FF Curtain Call and I miss playing that game.


+ RetroDaddySlim on September 21st, 2014 at 11:10 am said:

So, how long are PS3 owners going to look at japanese imports only as new content?

In last 45 days only Slender is coming to ps3 psn. Pathetic.

Cant remember the last time ps3 had two or more psn games out in one week.
Digital retails I dont count as real psn games, those are just an option next to physical disk version.


+ Nerroth on September 21st, 2014 at 11:10 am said:

While it may not count as a new game, I’m looking forward to the major update to Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment on the 23rd.

The “v1.05” update offered for the Japanese version back in July added around 30 hours’ worth of extra content, and tweaked a few details from the core game (such as making the Hollow Area map easier to navigate).

Hopefully we will also see Kirito and Sinon’s GGO DLC outfits show up, as well as the Mahouka crossover items announced by Bandai Namco at TGS 2014. (The crossover goes the other way also, since a set of SAO costumes will be made available in Japan for the upcoming Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Out of Order – another PS Vita game I hope may be considered for a release over here.)

That same event also saw Bamco confirm that a “Sword Art Online III” game is in the works. There should be more information revealed for it at a Dengeki Bunko event on the 5th of October.

I read on the internet that if you play slender you turn into a sociopath teenaged girl. it totally must be true since it was on the internet. I am so playing that.


+ Remmy8199 on September 21st, 2014 at 11:20 am said:

@42 Lol, I figured it was only a matter of time before someone brought that up. I saw that on the news too.


+ RetroDaddySlim on September 21st, 2014 at 11:25 am said:

I think Sony turned into socioapth teenaged girl, because they have nothing for ps3 except Slender in last 45 days.
Kiling ps3 softly is worse then killing it over night.
Want to buy new psn games for me and kids, but for the love of God I cant. Nothing there for ages.

I guess retail games are all we can hope for, unless they delay that too as Mordor for ps3.

LMAO, no wonder sony got $2 billion in loses this year.


+ SilentNova on September 21st, 2014 at 11:31 am said:

I am excited about Ar as I have 1-3 of Tonelico. Also really excited about Arcana Heart 3 Love Max!!!! Any chance we could get the PS2 Ys games on the store though?


+ Ikusa02 on September 21st, 2014 at 12:07 pm said:

@4 + @16

The price of Slender: The Arrival is $9.99 USD. It was mentioned in the announcement post of the game.


+ shogun00 on September 21st, 2014 at 12:16 pm said:

I really wish Square Enix, Bandai Namco, Activision and EA would release their PS1 and PS2 catalogs onto the PSN. They are sitting on a gold mine of several great PS1 and PS2 titles, but yet they don’t even bother. Square Enix has only released out their old Final Fantasy titles and that’s about it. Namco released out Tekken 1, 2, and Ridge Racer Type 4 and that’s it. Where’s Tekken 3, Tekken 4, Rage Racer, Ridge Racer (and Revolution), Dragon Quest (all of it), Bloody Roar 3, Bloody Roar 4, Vigilante 8, Nightmare Creatures and the list go on and on.


+ AizawaYuuichi on September 21st, 2014 at 12:22 pm said:

I remember when people used to use this section to be excited for what was coming out, helpfully notify the Blog guys if they forgot a title, and generally just be excited.

Now it’s all about wishlists and endless complaining. So sad how things have changed. Popularity seems to have also brought the scurge of the internet. I almost wish for the old days, when Playstation was considered the underdog, even if it was selling better over its lifetime than Xbox was.


+ NSFan62595 on September 21st, 2014 at 12:34 pm said:

So, when are PSONE and PS2 Classics and maybe even PSP Classics going to arrive on PS4? I sure would like to replay some on PS4, like the PSONE Megaman X games.


+ gamerx42z on September 21st, 2014 at 1:02 pm said:

Will most likely buy Ar Nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star in a few months when it price drops/goes on sale. Possibly Slender too. Hoping for some good $15 or under rpg sales this week.
