This Week in PlayStation: To the Blogmobile!

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by

It’s not every week we see a new Batman game announced, but here we are. On PS4, no less! Based on what little we know about Arkham Knight, I think we can already safely get hyped up for it. Batmobile!

We’ve got yet another bunch of discounts on deck (extra dollars saved if you’re a PS Plus member). Watch_Dogs got an official release date — May 27th. Fez is out later this month, and it looks like the PS4 version is the best iteration of the indie legend yet. We got an unsettling new trailer for SOMA, the upcoming PS4 horror title from the makers of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Bandai Namco dropped off a few hot tips for Dark Souls II (out Tuesday). Hatsune Miku made her portable debut in North America on Tuesday with the release of Project Diva f on PS Vita. Two PS3 favorites are making the jump to PS4 with new upgrades in tow: PixelJunk Shooter and Guacamelee! I wiped both those games clean on their original release, and I’ll be happy to do it again with a DualShock 4.

Oh, and one last thing: we’ve now sold more than six million PS4s, and we can’t thank you all enough for the support. Game on, friends.

  • I’m playing: South Park: The Stick of Truth, Resogun, TowerFall Ascension
  • I’m watching: Frozen (just as good the second time!)
  • I’m listening to: Tycho, other Ghostly artists

    We just got some fancy new ones made up to match the Blog’s new background, and when we were making the list of games we figured it’d be silly to leave those out.

Sweet, sweet sound. Still waiting for the critics on Watch Dogs; 8-player free roam sounds nice in the world they created.

i’m pretty excited for arkham knight: the graphics look interesting, and i really just like the arkham games. plus, i finally get to play as the coolest looney ever, harley quinn (injustice has been the only one so far). can’t wait to see what crazy/funny gadgets they give her. i’m also curious to know what happens in the story because, well you know… arkham city ending, and that’s all i’m saying.

hopefully arkham origins can hurry up and go on sale before i get my ps4.
