The Drop

Assassins, overlords, rock stars, and heroes — this week’s lineup of new games is brimming with all sorts of characters, and you’ve come to the right place for details.

Form the first organized crime family as a team of sibling assassins, and look good doing it.

    Ryan Clements said:

    October 18th, 11:03 am

    Sweet! Thank you for stopping by.

    Korahn27 said:

    October 19th, 7:30 am

    I hope Ubisoft learned from Unity and will have a working game at launch this time.

Mazyx said:

October 18th, 10:57 am

This week on PSN:

Waifus (Zestiria) and Husbandos (Code: Realize)

something for everyone

Alucard-XII said:

October 18th, 11:00 am

I like the Arcade Archives concept, but I think it could have been improved by a better emulation (more visual options, online play ….etc) and a better library.

Some suggestions:

Shinobi – Sega
Shadow Dancer – Sega
Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder – Sega
In the Hunt – Irem
GunForce 2 – Irem
Captain Commando – Capcom
Three Wonders – Capcom
Elevator Action Returns – Square Enix
Contra – Konami
Crime Fighters – Konami
TMNT / TMNT Turtles in Time – Konami (more like wishful thinking but would be great if done)
Gang Wars – SNK
P.O.W. – SNK
Street Smart – SNK

Thanks for the updare.

    October 18th, 11:03 am

    why you want play very old games ? no wondering why

    shogun00 said:

    October 18th, 12:49 pm

    If you have a PSP, Vita, or PS3, you can get those SNK titles on PSN (as Minis). I have Street Smart myself and I’m surprised at how well it plays as a Mini.

    NeoMahi said:

    October 18th, 12:58 pm

    You may as well include: Virtual On HD (that was on Xbox Live), Radiant Silver gun HD, Dragon Force, Panzer Dragoon Orta HD, Gun Valkyrie on top of all that. Playing Virtual On with twin sticks would be awesome on the PS4.

    Alucard-XII said:

    October 18th, 10:14 pm

    @Shogun00: yeah I have them too but the lack of 2 players is a huge turn off

    @NeoMahi: uh I would love to get these too along with Guardian Heroes but I think they are outside the Arcade Archives category (classic 80’s arcade games)

    SpooNManX said:

    October 19th, 2:20 am

    I’d say yes to most of those as long as the emulation is accurate and they have some nice extras. M2 does an excellent job so it would be very if they handled it.

    I’d love to see these
    Sega Arcade Classics:
    Golden Axe
    Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder
    Shadow Dancer
    Virtua Racing HD
    Space Harrier
    Planet Harriers

    Neo-Geo games: (NAM-1975, Metal Slug X, Sengoku 1-3, Super Spy, Top Player’s Golf, 2020 Super Baseball, Blue’s Journey, Riding Hero, Cyber-Lip)

    And others such as: Marble Madness 1 & 2 (Cerny!), Track & Field, Midway classics…. and so on..

October 18th, 11:01 am

What an excellent lineup! Really looking forward to Tales of Zestiria the most! Too many games I tell ya’. ^-^

    Ryan Clements said:

    October 18th, 11:04 am

    There are so many games!

    hawjboi2009 said:

    October 18th, 11:06 am

    which games are many ?

    erosfortones said:

    October 18th, 11:23 am

    Generally speaking there are a ton of games. Didn’t specifically mean for this week alone. I’ve, personally, been swamped with games. ^-^

eggmiester28 said:

October 18th, 11:06 am

A nice week of games, it has a mix of different types of games.

    Ryan Clements said:

    October 18th, 11:44 am

    Agreed! Good mix of genres.

Onideka said:

October 18th, 11:11 am

There are so many games I want to buy and play but so little time.

Ryan will you be playing Divinity when it drops next week?

    Ryan Clements said:

    October 18th, 11:44 am

    I want to! But I’m getting pulled into Transformers: Devastation right now. So good.

NX_Nytrux said:

October 18th, 11:23 am

Waiting for these PS2 Classics:
– Silent Hill 2/3/The Room/Origins (i don’t like HD remasters)
– Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria
– Xenosaga 1/2/3

    dkarlowicz10 said:

    October 18th, 12:48 pm

    You are probably one of few that does not like HD remasters. I am the opposite, I prefer HD remaster over originals. I know that Silent Hill 2 and 3 HD were kind of a mess, but the originals will never be released. First off, the HD editions (even if they are messy) were released and the company will not go and release the originals after that. Second, I believe that Konami had lost the original game code which resulted in the sub HD port as they had to write the code from scratch. Third, this is a Konami game, and Konami is kind of abandoning consoles for the most part. Might as well not ask for any Silent Hill game (new or old).

Wtf Code REalize is out this week!! I already preordered Tales of Zestiria the game look awesome .

sciteach said:

helbertpina said:

October 18th, 11:33 am

Wow, AC:Syndicate is out already?! So many games, so little time… :(

sajoey said:

October 18th, 11:35 am

I’m getting both Guitar Hero Live and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate this week. Frankly, I’m more excited for Syndicate as I’ve been a huge fan of Assassin’s Creed for years now, even going so far as to pre-order Syndicate from GameStop the day it was announced. That being said, I’m shockingly excited for GH Live. I’ve been playing the demo at my local GameStop for a little while now and am enjoying the crap out of it. The controller definitely takes some getting used to, but when you do, it feels fantastic.

Cool Drop! Any word on the other three games in the Hasbro Family Fun Pack? I see Monopoly Plus in the pic.

locolukah said:

October 18th, 11:52 am

AC needs to take a few years off…and who would buy it at launch after the mess that Unity was?

    CapnSquiggles said:

    October 18th, 1:01 pm

    Come on, now. Unity had the burden of the first attempt at multiplayer and development for multiple generations. It WAS a crap shoot that was a bit over the top but in general their releases are about as solid as any other AAA. Once it was patched it was a great game… but Syndicate looks way better.

    opikal said:

    October 18th, 4:39 pm

    I agree. Unity made me mad in so many ways, and I just played it last month. AC games come out so fast they end up $20 or less within 6 months.

    cusman said:

    October 19th, 1:53 pm

    I didn’t buy Unity because I was busy with Destiny at the time. I guess I got spared. Not getting Syndicate in any hurry because have too many other games to play, and seems better to wait for these annual release AAA games to get patched before playing.

Phenix--Nguyen said:

October 18th, 12:35 pm

Don’t know if anyone knows this but…
The Order 1886
Killzone: Shadow
Little Big Planet 3
And couple more games are now $19.99
Don’t know if it’s a price drop or discount. But it’s weird Sony never mention these price changes.

    Phenix--Nguyen said:

    October 18th, 12:41 pm

    These are digital download on PSN (SEN).

dkarlowicz10 said:

October 18th, 12:42 pm

Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations is also coming to 3DS, but not Vita. I am hoping to see it on Vita at some point.

    kmtburton said:

    JuggaloHomie4321 said:

    October 19th, 7:38 am

    Rezolution77 said:

    October 20th, 10:03 am

October 19th, 11:48 am

October 19th, 5:38 pm

More PS1 classics please!

Saga Frontier 1 and 2
Vandal Hearts 1 and 2

ImAPirateSoSueMe said:

October 20th, 8:44 am

Can you please confirm is Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 is releasing today or tomorrow? I was soooo bummed that it didn’t have a midnight release like previous episodes, stood up most of the night waiting to just be disappointed, now on the EU blog it shows 10/21 as the release.

xtal84 said:

October 20th, 9:25 am

Ooh, I played Forced (then “FORCED” for some reason) when it came out on PC .. I want to say that was early 2014ish. It’s a great 4 player co-op game, quite fun.

DragonessHera said:

October 20th, 11:40 am

Holy smokes you guys finally released One Piece themes for the PS4! They’re rather outdated (Going Merry instead of Thousand Sunny and such old Wanted Posters), but it’s still a great step forward!

Naustradamus said:

October 20th, 12:36 pm

highlights are important, I get it, but some things are missing, such as Tales of the boarderlands episode 5, life is strange episode 5 … think the list you were producing in the past was better =/
