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.
Diablo III Reaper of Souls: The Ultimate Evil Edition (phew!) is out now on PS4 and PS3, CounterSpy made its cross-buy, cross-save debut, we went hands-on with Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity, Powers picked up Sharlto Copley as Detective Christian Walker, FuturLab gave us a look at the sci-fi inspriations (and Abrams-esque lens flares) behind their upcoming dimension-shifter Velocity 2X, Warframe got a beefy new update… oh, and there’s a Flash Sale happening right now. Go!
An up-close look at Bloodborne gameplay, Tearaway Unfolded coming to PS4, new videos for Driveclub and inFAMOUS First Light, the debut of Michel Ancel’s new project WiLD, the reemergence of Until Dawn (now a PS4 exclusive), Journey and The Unfinished Swan coming to PS4, and The Tomorrow Children from Q-Games.
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. It’s not all bad news, though! By battling fearsome Abductors and rescuing citizens, your captors will generously reduce the length of your imprisonment — a few years at a time.
This week, we found out that Blizzard will keep the updates coming for Diablo III on PS4, The Last of Us got some new add-ons (on PS3 and PS4), we took a look back at July’s top PS Store sellers, we got release dates for Velocity 2X (9/2) and Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition (Tuesday), and this month’s PlayStation Plus lineup went live (yes, you can download the whole set right now).
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.
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.
