Last Guardian lol it’s like a prophecy come true. Should make it an official holiday.

Is that a port of the original Red Faction or is this a new version?

    December 2nd, 2:07 pm

    and now I see the first sentence “The child of prophecy returns.” I checked the RF blurb to see if the answer to my question was in there too lol.

    My guess would be that it’s a PS2 Classic. Upgraded to 1080p/60fps, Trophies, etc, but not revamped graphics.


    December 2nd, 7:34 pm

    Pls need Scarface the game. And marvel vs capcom 2.

    RISE_UP44 said:

    Popbot said:

    MakaiOokami said:

    December 3rd, 9:21 pm

    Knowing the Blogcast team they might be playing Final Fantasy XIV on PC while playing XV on the PS4. I wouldn’t put it past them to have facial hair and a new pant size.

    funkmachine08 said:

    December 2nd, 2:39 pm

    Town of Salem is actually a copy of the game Werewolf. Fun fact.

Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian one week apart from each other. Remarkable.

    joh4nlee said:

    December 2nd, 4:13 pm

    sadly playing The Last Guardian gonna have to wait for a while

Mercenary09 said:

December 2nd, 2:44 pm

Been waiting so long for The Last Guardian and so happy it’s finally about here. Other games this week that are worth picking up are ARK and Demetrios for the Vita.

Also if you’re a trophy hunter Nubla is the easiest game to platinum. It’s been in EU for a LONG time now and trophy hunters have been asking for it here. Now is the time.

    COWCATGames said:

    December 2nd, 2:48 pm

    Hey, thank you so much for including my game Demetrios in the “worth picking” :p

    I’m a solo developer and being able to release it on the PlayStation Vita is a dream come true! (And a lot of hard work :)

    Band2eto said:

    December 2nd, 11:23 pm

    @ COWCATGames

    No, thank you! Thank you for supporting Playstation, but more importantly Vita!
    I think your game (Demetrios) is a perfect fit for the Vita, and I’m planning to get this Day One, as well.

    Keep up the great work, and best of luck to you in the future!

    MakaiOokami said:

    December 3rd, 9:31 pm

    I considered making my own game, downloaded a ton of stuff and was gonna do bite sized $1-$3 games on PS Mobile, and then they started phasing out PS Mobile and it ended up being like “Well so much for that.”

    I wanted to make 1 game that was going to be a comedic text adventure just for the heck of it. I figured if I could make a comical D&D like Campaign where you have to be careful when hunting for Mandragoras not to accidentally grab the Manlydragora instead.

    I figured if I put it up for $1 or $2 people could get some kicks out of it. Figured heck maybe I could get better at drawing or hire someone to do drawings and put the GUI upgrades as $2 DLC packages. XD

    Though the humor I had (for things like Manlydragora) might have been a bit of an issue with the ESRB lol.

    Trophy hunters you say?…hmm more like trophy who**s.

TrueAssassin86x said:

Nothing for me next week. I Couldnt careless about The Last Guardian. Hopefully with all 3 games out now Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian and Ark people will finally shut up about these games.

Dragjae55 said:

December 2nd, 3:40 pm

Is the 3 on 3 going to be free?


December 2nd, 3:48 pm

YES ARK IS AMAZING, if you want a survival game like day z or h1z1 but dinosaurs instead of zombies this is for you

BathoryBlaze said:

December 3rd, 6:00 am

There’s a bunch of games on this list I want to play but I don’t think I can stop playing Final Fantasy XV for anything else at the moment.

StephAkaSlave said:

December 3rd, 9:20 am

WHY is there not a page on PSN for ARK survival evolved yet??? I want to preorder/preload it to my console :(

    Hal_Jordan_1991 said:

    December 5th, 9:49 am

    I KNOW!!!! I want to be able to play ASAP. I’m curious about that as well.

Nightstream88 said:

December 3rd, 6:46 pm

Been waiting on The Last Guardian for a long time.
Is Ark Survival Evolved going to be the full game of it?
Since I was interested in getting that one as well

    Hal_Jordan_1991 said:

    December 5th, 9:43 am

    Yes from my knowledge it is the full game; well the most up to date version of the game in line with the PC and Xbox versions. It is technically still in early access but it is close to completion. And it will have split screen couch co-op which I’m super excited about.

Welmosca said:

December 3rd, 10:03 pm

Wow The Last Guardian is already (and finally) releasing…ha seriously I’m so off of gaming news that time is flying for me.Looking forward to play it but unfortunately I can’t buy it on launch,gotta focus on older games.

Aero_Guardian17 said:

December 4th, 12:21 pm

The Last Guardian is FINALLY almost here! I am so excited to get this in my hands. I am eagerly waiting gather release of the soundtrack as well. It better release on the same day!

OutOfMyWay54 said:

December 4th, 2:15 pm

The Last Guardian looks like crap. Who came up with this ugly looking thing. lol

watchdog1987 said:

December 5th, 8:56 am

It’s too bad that the PS2 classics purchased on PS3 don’t cross over to PS4. It’d be nice to play Red Faction, Siren, etc on the PS4 without having to repurchase them.

Hal_Jordan_1991 said:

December 5th, 9:40 am

ARK survival evolved!!! I have been waiting so long for this can’t wait to finally get my hands on this amazing looking game!!!!

timrowley said:

I think I’m done with game purchases for this year.
Nothing at all is coming out before March even that has any sort of graphically involved games. They’ve announced a couple for the end of Dec, but we all know they’ll get pushed back again anyway.
Even the last guardian doesn’t look good at all. The graphics remind me of Shadows of Colossus. And even the reviews said the controls were just as clunky. I’m sorry if my opinion offends. To me, this new console is supposed to mean better graphics, not worse. And 90% of what comes out anymore for the playstation just doesn’t have it. Even Nintendo is releasing better graphic stuff. And we all know they’re in last place when it comes to graphics anyway.
