This Week in PlayStation

We’ll keep this one brief, because let’s be real — it’s officially The Holidays™ and we’ve all got games to play and cookies to eat.

Minecraft is out now on PS3! Somebody build a DeLorean in-game, please.

Other new releases this week: The first episode of Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season Two (tune in to this week’s PlayStation Blogcast for an interview with Episode 1’s director, Dennis Lenart), Terraria on PS Vita, The Pinball Arcade on PS4, and the first story DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Freedom Cry.

In between rounds of The Pinball Arcade, I’ve been booting up Resogun and fighting to keep raising my scores. I’m in the 120m range on Veteran (eat that, Sid), but I get really sloppy past stage 1, so I know I can do better. What’s your high score? Got any advanced tips to take it to the next level?

  • I’m playing: The Pinball Arcade on PS4 (Bride of Pinbot and Theatre of Magic)
  • I’m watching: Anchorman 2
  • I’m listening to: Anamanaguchi – Endless Fantasy (on vinyl!)

I’m not playing it yet but after I go in and buy a $20 psn card in a few hours I’ll be playing batman arkham origins blackgate on psvita , that sale price is too good to pass up
I’m watching my account balance go lower as I buy the last few Christmas gifts on my list this weekend , and ‘m reading that account balance print out every time I take out a few more bucks LOL

really want to get that walking dead season two game but I’ll wait until the seasons pass is out and hope it includes this first episode at a good price for the whole season ( $20 ? )

Anyone else wish it was easier to check your PSN wallet balnce on the Vita? When I’m browsing playstation store website on the PC, I can easily tell what my balance is at a glance, but on the vita, I have to jump through hoops (usually by “pretending'” to add money to the wallet) to find out what my remaining balance is.

And Tearaway at $17.99 is a must-buy.

I’m playing: (still) Dragon’s Crown (PSVita), Cytus Lambda (PSMobile); Tearaway next
I’m watching: Attack on Titan OVA, Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide; Wolf Children and Mood Indigo next
I’m listening to: Cytus soundtracks
I’m reading: Night Sessions (Ken Macleod), Alchemy of Stone (Ekaterina Sedia)

I’m playing: Velocity Ultra, Spelunky and Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate! I just bought Blackgate and Tearaway yesterday with the flashsale, and I’ve been playing it ever since. It’s a really underrated game. I really needed a break from Spelunky anyway, since apparently I’m the worst Spelunky player on Earth!

I’m watching: The women’s volleyball National championship tonight between Wisconsin and Penn St.(Penn st has some hotties!)

I’m listening: Nothing really, but I’ve watched Beyonce’s Drunk in Love video on Youtube way too many times! Great song and I love the video. It gives me funny feelings every time I watch!! lol

@5 This post is going downhill, but that’s only because people don’t post comments. I like it though. It’s supposed to get people to discuss their favorite games and other media, and to discuss the more popular topics from the PS Blog for the week. This is a good place to discuss why telltale keeps holding their Season passes back to punish their biggest and most impulsive fans, or why SquareEnix is only offering a digital download for FFX-2 for the vita.

I really enjoyed the links to other sites like neogaff and all that…

Ain’t the comments on those blogs for discussing those topics. We come to this site to read the posts. We do. And I like the reassuarance that they are actively seeking info on games from sources outside of Sony and I’m interested in knowing what Justin reads as gaming news.I know it’s a Sony blog. I know the articles I just enjoyed the outside links shows a litttle love in the game community.

Still feel stupid about the masojonistic coment however. Can’t think of the right word self promoting keeping it in the company. I dunno.

Still I got lots of love for the blogs and news.

I’m playing: PS3 – Dark Souls, Fallout 3, I Am Alive / PSVITA – Rayman Legends, Tearaway

Really loving Tearaway, thanks for the $18 deal. I didn’t really liked Little Big Planet, but Media Molecule just nailed it with this Vita game, just… amazing and wonderful.

Seeing how the PS4 is selling well. I might actually suggest buying out Nintendo, or make a partnership.
(PS4 to make the home consoles and Nintendo making the handhelds, and the other to make exclusive games on the each other console)
Just thinking out loud, nothing serious.

On the serious side. Get more games in stores for the Vita.
