This week’s list o’links is a bit PS Vita heavy, but that’s probably a good thing. Below, find reviews of titles such as Smart As…, Assassin’s Creed III Liberation, Orgarhythm, Ragnarok Odyssey, and the game that has been owning my Vita as of late, Need for Speed: Most Wanted. With Persona 4: Golden, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Call of Duty: Declassified dropping over the course of the next couple of weeks, it’s not a bad time to have a commute. For a change.
Enjoy the extra hour today, everyone. You didn’t forget, did you?
The PS.Blog weekly reading list (Week of October 29th, 2012)
I just peeked at this week’s complete list of new releases (which will publish here in a few hours), and it’s doozy. Two great Assassin’s Creed titles, a new (and awesome) Need for Speed on both PS3 and PS Vita, the HD remake of one of my favorite games of all time, and actually a lot more. Forget Halloween, October 30th should be a national holiday this year.
Oh, and if you’re watching football this afternoon, keep an eye out for the Assassin’s Creed III Liberation/PS Vita commercial, which will debut today.

Any of you playing the PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale beta going on right now? While I think that the ultimate experience with the game is 4 people huddled around a single TV, talking trash and pummeling each other on the PS3 version, I’ve been putting a lot of time into the PS Vita beta this weekend. I’m finding it a very impressive experience to be sitting on my couch, watching football and enjoying a smooth online fighting game experience on a handheld. I just wish you all weren’t getting so good so fast.

Seems like everyone this week is talking about Dishonored, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Retro City Rampage. There’s a reason for that – all of them are excellent, and you’ll find more stories on all of these titles below. Also, the next few weeks are shaping up quite well for PS Vita owners: find features below on Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, and a number of games making their way to US handhelds from Japan. And don’t sleep on SunFlowers; I’ve been having fun with that one this weekend as a palate cleanser between playing, well, Dishonored, XCOM, and Retro City Rampage.
I’m quite looking forward to this week (and so should you) with the arrivals of Dishonored, XCOM Enemy Unknown, and Retro City Rampage to PlayStation platforms. I’ve played all three at recent industry events, and I’d expect the reviews to come in quite high across the board – good news for us gamers. Heck, even though I’m currently on vacation (we’re in Florida for a wedding), I packed my PS3 to get on these games ASAP. I’ll link to coverage in next week’s post.
Below, find stories on Tokyo Jungle, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and a comprehensive title update for PS Vita’s Madden NFL 13.
We’re not even into October, and I’m already wayyyyyy behind in my Fall gaming. Despite putting about 20 hours into Borderlands 2, I’ve got a lot to go (love the side missions). Resident Evil 6 is out this week, XCOM Enemy Unknown (looking great) and Dishonored (also looking stellar) are out next week – and I just started Tokyo Jungle. I love it.
I’m stuck heading out to Florida this week to visit some family, and I dont want to slip any further behind… I’m thinking it’s time for my parents get a PS3.
With Tokyo Game Show 2012 now in the books, the major gaming shows and conferences are now wrapped up. There’s only one thing left to do: play the games we’ve been seeing since E3. The big new release weeks are underway; you’ll see the full list for September 25th in a few hours with this week’s The Drop. As far as TGS coverage goes, I’ve linked out to a number of stories below.

A great couple of weeks lie ahead of us, and the highlight over the next few days is likely to be Tokyo Game Show. Fred from the EU PlayStation Blog is winging his way to Japan as we speak, so look for TGS-related posts to start popping up here on the Blog late midweek.
For those of us that won’t be in Tokyo this week, look forward to Tokyo Jungle. This most unusual game is coming to PSN next week, and is pulling some rave reviews (find them below). And this week brings us Borderlands 2. Reviews should start rolling in tomorrow, and I expect them to be very, very high.
