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.
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).
Just a couple more days until 2013’s Game of the Year makes its rebuilt, 1080p debut: The Last of Us Remastered hits PS4 Tuesday, and we’ve got plenty of stories from the past week to prove it. Sid went hands-on, the photographically inclined will want to give Photo Mode a spin, we got a rundown on the game’s multiplayer enhancements, and the cast is taking to the stage Monday evening for a special, one-night event.
A few highlights from the last week: We got a look at the goods you can snag by pre-ordering Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, infographic puzzle platformer Metrico comes to PS Vita August 5th, we saw a new trailer for Sacred 3, Sid played The Last of Us Remastered, and we’ve got a bundle of 2-for-1 sales happening on PlayStation Store right now.
We’ve got details on Destiny’s impending PlayStation-first beta and its collectors’ editions (look at that Ghost Edition!), beloved indie rogue-lite Rogue Legacy lands on PS4/PS3/Vita this month, 2D fantastical fighter Skullgirls is headed to PS4 and Vita, Driveclub’s dynamic weather systems ensure that no two races will play out the same way, Alien: Isolation’s pre-order bonus lets fans play as Ellen Ripley herself, cheesy platformer Mousecraft is out on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, and experimental puzzler The Talos Principle hits PS4 later this year.
