The Drop

New Releases: Week of July 18, 2017
PS4, PS3, PS Vita — Digital (Cross Buy)


99Vidas is a brawler set in a contemporary world that pays tribute to both classic and new games in the industry. Brought to you in 16-bit pixelated glory, chock-full of references to not only gaming but also 80’s and 90’s pop culture.

PS4 — Digital (Out 7/21)


Superhot is the FPS where time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.

PS VR — Digital (Out 7/21)

Superhot VR

Lose track of what’s real. Commit yourself, body and mind. Confront the evocative, elegantly brutal world of Superhot VR. Enemies pouring into the room from all sides, a dozen bullets coursing through the air… wait. Something is different here…

PS4 — Digital


Gemea maintains the appearance of a paradise, yet an evil murk has enshrouded the land and its people in despair. As the hero of Yonder you will explore Gemea and uncover the island’s secrets and mysteries within yourself.

Fallen Legion all day long – game looks like a breath of fresh air. Beginning with the Vita version. Awesome deal going on btw, preorder the PS4 game, get the Vita game free – and it’s on discount!

    That is a good deal. I have pre-ordered digitally once in my entire life. I preordered south park to get stick of truth. Now it will be twice. A great deal and a great concept; two games being two sides of the same coin.

Can someone tell me the difference between both Fallen Legion games? Which one should be played first?

    Guardian_owl said:

    July 14th, 2:19 pm

    They are 2 side of the same story. The protagonist in the PS4 version and the protagonist in the Vita version are each others antagonists.

    You shouldn’t tell people your birthday online, it can be used to get into your account.

    If you search “heart” on the psn webstore you get 299 hits. Can anyone think of a word that gets more?

    StevenJamesHyde said:

    @matdubtruck – nearly 4x that for “dead”

99Vidas is a must buy for me.

I hope we have some awesome sales like we did this week!…….oh wait, they didn’t bother to have a sale this week.

    Nithorias said:

    July 15th, 2:14 pm

    I know what you mean. If we compare our sales with EU or JPN, ours kinda suck most of the time. Their BIG JAPAN sale was miles better than our Golden Week sale :( and the mid-year sale only had a few good deals (I’m looking at you Ratchet & Clank) xD Anyways, I’m here hoping for a good Dark Souls discount, specially the Season Pass of DS3 hehe.

Was thinking of getting Fallen Legion but they made a separate version on vita with a different story??? Why? Trying to make a system mover for a dead portable? If the I cant get the full experience I’ll probably just wont get it. Didnt know it existed until today anyway.

    Kishnabe said:

    July 15th, 9:15 am

    Vita is not dead….it has had it best 2 years so far. Tokyo Xanadu, Trails of Cold Steel 2, and so many other games I won’t bother providing.

    Both games are the same story it is just another viewpoint….probably going to be a few sentences of difference. if you preorder the PS4 version you get the Vita version free.. Used Vita worth picking up, some amazing games on that platform.

    You have PS+, must have checked out all the titles…have some Vita elusive games waiting to be enjoyed.

Nice, but is Constructor ever coming out in the US?

God-Of-Lyf said:

I honestly don’t see what all the hype over Super Hot is? May pick it up when on sale, priced to high when it’s cheaper on other devices.

    SteveTheHype7 said:

    It’s because jacksepticeye played it. Btw

    VinsanityV21 said:

    July 18th, 12:29 pm

    Its real cool man. That core mechanic of time not moving unless you’re moving lets you do all the cool things. Just like, all of them. Dodging bullets, throwing guns, grabbing guns out of the air that you threw into a guy’s face, slicing a bullet in half, etc. Its just rad af. :)

SteveTheHype7 said:

July 15th, 3:49 am

I played a game called Dungeon Defenders and the description of Orcs Must Die is basicley the same. Btw

    ksmooches said:

    July 15th, 4:19 am

    The orginal Orcs Must Die released about a week before Dungeon Defenders did on PC. They are close but Dungeon Defenders is a game were you lay down “towers” based on your class and do some attacking. Orcs Must Die is where you lay down traps like in Deception or Fortnite. I don’t believe the classes determine your traps, but they obviously have different attacks and such based on the character.

Children of Zodiarcs had me until they said deck of cards. Jrpg fans of the 90s don’t want pokemon or yu gi oh, god damnit.

    Slayn_W said:

    July 19th, 3:11 pm

    It’d be more prudent to look at the cards akin to D&D, and nothing at all like Yugi-oh/Pokemon. Cards are your abilities, dice amplify your damage/proc special effects of said cards etc.

We’re never getting Patapon Remastered, are we? First, June 15th comes and goes, now July 18th comes and goes…

A lot of great variety this week, but I can only afford Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles.
Have a great week, everyone!

Sefier said:

I pre-ordered Fallen Legion, but cannot download it. I can purchase it in the playstation store at full price and play right now, but my preorder has a Lock icon displayed next to it? What is the point of pre-ordering a game that I cannot play with its concurrent release? Is this a punishment for paying less?

    VinsanityV21 said:

    July 18th, 12:26 pm

    YES. Thank you! I came here to complain the exact same thing. The Pre-Order is busted. Its been “unlocked” and live on the store all day, but I pre-ordered it and it hasn’t downloaded yet. Go to the Library and it says “Check Back Soon!” when I should be able to manually force it to download. Its like its not even there. What the heck is going on with that Pre-Order?

    SilentNova said:

    July 18th, 1:12 pm

    Same complaint here on my end. We were supposed to get access to both games plus the theme for the pre-order deala dn it is not working.

    VinsanityV21 said:

    July 18th, 2:31 pm

    I just checked YummyYummyTummy’s Twitter:

    They said they got it fixed about a half hour ago. Just checked the Library and the padlock icon is gone – we can download it finally.

    VinsanityV21 said:

    July 18th, 2:34 pm

    I just checked the Fallen Legion Twitter – FallenLegionPS. Or just google it like I did ;)

    About 5 hours ago they posted they were looking into the issue. And about a half hour ago, they said they got it fixed. Just checked the Library and the padlock icon is gone – we can download it finally.

    (Apologies if this double posts – my other comment is awaiting moderation for posting their Twitter :P )
