Velocity-2X

Well, it’s the last weekend before Destiny hits, and I’m a bit torn about the whole thing. On one hand, I’ll finally get to trek across the solar system with my best buds and become legend, as they say. On the other, this likely means I’ll be neglecting all the other games I’ve got on deck: Velocity 2X, Diablo III, The Swapper, Rogue Legacy, Danganronpa (I want to play its sequel but haven’t finished the original), CounterSpy, and of course, Final Fantasy XIV. Hm… maybe I’ll just call out of work for the next week. Shh, don’t tell.

PS Vita exclusive Freedom Wars comes courtesy of Japan Studio, Dimps, and Shift, and places you into the unfortunate shoes of a prisoner facing a one million year sentence.

injustice-lead

It’s that time again! In a shocking upset, last month’s top PS4 title on PlayStation Store was Injustice: Gods Among Us, beating out even the mighty The Last of Us Remastered (hello, Photo Mode!) I’m assuming the fact that Injustice was $8.40 for PS Plus members had something to do with that. Moving on, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes rounded out PS4′s top three, while Rogue Legacy and Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty made strong debuts.

Yeah, Metrico’s gameplay centers around the world of infographics. Charts manifest and shift as you run and jump — one puzzle even requires the player to throw themselves into a bottomless pit to summon a bar graph, creating a bridge to the next area.

The Drop - Road Not Taken

Two long-awaited, rather mysterious titles are not only coming to PlayStation this week — they’ll be free for PlayStation Plus members from the get-go. The adorably puzzling Road Not Taken puts players into the boots of a tiny ranger, seeking to rescue lost children after an unforgiving winter storm. Procedural level generation will keep you on your toes, and will mean a different story each time you play.
