The PlayStation Recap – What We’re Reading

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

PixelJunk PixelJunk PixelJunk. I can’t get Tiki dude and his little Tiki dudelets out of my head this week, since I’ve got PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD on my Vita now. I’m just about to wrap up the first island (last level’s a bit of a pain), and I’m already laying out strategies to rainbow the earlier stages.

But enough of that! Plenty more happened this week on PS.Blog, including Ryan’s Lost Planet 3 hands-on, and my Batman: Arkham Origins multiplayer hands-on — we both interviewed Alastair Cornish, creative director at Splash Damage on this week’s Blogcast, by the way.

Fans of last year’s PSN SRPG Rainbow Moon, this one’s for you. You saw a spankin’ new trailer for Ubisoft’s open-word techfest Watch_Dogs, the PS.Blog team was lucky enough to play Dragon’s Crown and interview Atlus’ John Hardin about it (of course, Rey was there to get the whole thing on video), one of the strangest games in recent memory is out this month, we’ve got a bundle that’s just perfect for those of you who somehow don’t have Journey and The Unfinished Swan yet, and lots more!

What are you playing this weekend? (PixelJunk)

Oh really, thanks! I would love to download this version of DOA5 this time, since i clocked in over 100 hours with the original version and 50+ hours on the Vita version. Anyway, any info is very much appreciated. I am not worried about the download size, just want to know those 2 things listed or at the very least, if it comes with at least some of the pre-order items.

    Just an update: I’m reaching out about this but it doesn’t look like I’m gonna have a solid answer for a bit. Sorry. Keep an eye on PS.Blog though — hoping to get some news about this out before launch.

I would like there to be a moment of silence for my Fatboy 60gig that kicked the bucket today. You will be missed my friend. But I want to punch it too because it was in the middle of popping my final few Last of Us trophies and the platinum. I’d cry but jeebus hates crybabies, snitches, and softcore pornography.

I’m playing: Nothing at the moment. Just beat Uncharted Drakes Deception last night though. It was amazing. The graphics and gameplay were so good I forgot I was playing on vita. Vita needs more games like that. Waiting for Tales of Xillia tuesday. I’m watching Season 2 of The Killing on netflix and eagerly anticipating August 11th for the final Breaking Bad episodes.

Can’t wait for gamescom but please when the ps+ update we’re on august 4th and we haven’t seen anything yet.

PS4 questions i want answered

1.for online will everyone on the console have to buy ps+ or will one ps+ let everyone to play multiplayer
2.is there a posibility of a ps4 and vita bundle
3.in a video i saw a person using the controller motion contorl to message is the cam required
4.will ps home be on ps4

not a question but i think it would be sweet if gta 5 was one of the first games on gaikai since no one knows if it will comes to next gen
