The PlayStation Recap — New Guy Edition

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

Greetings, friends. The name’s Justin — I’ve been skulking behind the scenes here at PlayStation.Blog for a few months now, helping to get posts put together and looking extra-slick before they reach your fatigued eyeballs. See how game thumbnails are tucked neatly in with the text in recent PlayStation Store Updates, for example? Yep, that was me.

You may have heard me on a PlayStation Blogcast or two, but otherwise I’ve kept a pretty low profile since I started here. That changes today! Well, sort of. I’m taking over the weekend Recap post, where I’ll recount the week’s most-read PlayStation.Blog posts (read below for the full list). Taking this post over from Sid, I know I have a lot to live up to — I’ll try not to disappoint.

Last week, we proposed we roll the “What We Read” recap into this one, to form one giant, unstoppable, Voltron-esque Recap. You all seemed to agree that this was a good plan, so we’re going to do that starting next week. We’ve got an idea of how we want to implement it, and we think it’s going to fit perfectly in here.

With the formalities out of the way, let’s talk videogames.

I grabbed a copy of Lollipop Chainsaw on sale recently, and I’m surprised I didn’t get to it sooner! Exploding with style (and zombie bits), a fun, upgradeable combat system, and one of the most ridiculous stories I’ve seen in gaming. I loved every minute! I’m also gearing up for my fourth playthrough of Journey in honor of its multiple nominations in this year’s VGA’s. Toss in a bit of Persona 4 Golden love on my PS Vita, and my week has been pretty well set.

What are you playing this week?

Most-Watched Video of the Week: Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified PlayStation Vita Commercial

I’m playing: Paper Mario: Sticker Star (got it off of Newegg.com for $30)
Will be playing once it comes in the mail, Kirby: Mass Attack (got it $9.99 total off of newegg.com as well)
-also regret not pre-ordering a Wii U

Don’t mean to go all Nintendo on a Sony PS blog but that’s what’s on my mind.

I have been playing more of Dead or Alive 5 on my ps3.

Since Sony doesn’t want to do what they have to and should with PlayStation Vita I’m playing PlayStation Portable and won’t PlayStation Vita because they didn’t do and still haven’t done something they should have like let consumers play their UMD content on their PSVita for free or a very small fee.

I still want my PSN store fixed/updated/patched. Whatever. It is to slow on the first load. Takes to many screens to download anything. And most of all. I want A SEARCH FOR MY DOWNLOAD HISTORY. The store is fine otherwise. But every time i go to download a new demo/tv episode movie/game i will be coming on here to grief. Carry on playstation. I still love my ps3, and im still paying for plus and happy to do so. I just want the store to be a little tweaked still.

I also grabbed Lollipop Chainsaw recently and it has been pretty good for the first few hours. There is a lot more style than substance, but it is pretty funny and I’ve had a good time with it.

I’ve put that on hold for the moment for the most part though and currently

I’m Playing: God of War HD (remote play on my vita mostly, I wanted to try out remote play and it’s working great). Also playing a lot of NFS: Most Wanted. Anxiously awaiting Persona 4 Golden this week, the original is my favorite game of all time.

I’m listening to: The Killers, Gaslight Anthem, Giant Bombcast, PS Blogcast
