We’re back! While I continue to explore the nerve-jangling depths of Dark Souls, the rest of the Blogcast cast rewinds time to chat about all sorts of old favorites. Plus: A major PS4 release highlights the new PlayStation releases for January 28th, we debut a voicemail you can’t afford to miss, and end with an especially sneaky Mystery Theme. Not too shabby!
Following its strong showing in Game of the Year awards industry-wide, all eyes have turned towards the future of The Last of Us. And that would be The Last of Us: Left Behind, the upcoming story-driven epilogue written by TLOU scribe Neil Druckmann and starring Ashley Johnson as Ellie and Yaani King as Riley, Ellie’s older and arguably wiser friend.
We’re off and running with a special preview of our (and your!) most anticipated games of 2014. Also: I finally play Dark Souls, we share a new batch of voice mails, and dish out those oh-so-important new releases for next Tuesday, January 21st.
Our very first 2014 interview focuses on the dark world of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 with Producer Dave Cox. Then we discuss CES highlights, including my hands-on experiences with newly announced game streaming service PS Now, favorite gadgets from the show (4K TVs!), next week’s new PlayStation Store releases, and new letters.
It works! That’s the biggest compliment you could pay the newly revealed PlayStation Now game streaming service formally unveiled at CES 2014. Set to roll out this summer on PS3 and PS4 — followed by PS Vita and an array of internet connected devices such as 2014 BRAVIA TVs — PS Now will enable users to stream a library of PS3 titles in real time over the internet.
Today, at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, we announced that PlayStation Now (PS Now), our new streaming game service, will be available in the US this summer. With PlayStation Now, you will be able to stream popular hits and classic games from the PS3 library, first on PS4 and PS3 systems, followed by PS Vita.
Happy holidays! Here’s a festive yule log for you: Our very first clip show, complete with our favorite interviews, from Ken Levine and Ron Gilbert to Nate Fox on inFAMOUS Second Son and the first five minutes of our very first show. Enjoy!
