Pata-Pata-Pata-Pon!

The iconic rhythm RPG marches onto PlayStation once again with Patapon Remastered, which brings the classic adventure to PS4 on August 1.

Behind the Patapon tribe’s cute exterior beats the ferocious heart of a warrior. Pound the drums of war and lead the Patapon tribe into battle against the evil Zigoton army. Every command, from surging attacks to strategic retreats, requires the rhythmic beating of the drums. Campaign across more than 30 missions to discover 100+ items and weapons in the Patapon’s noble quest for victory.

For a full list of new games coming to PlayStation, read on. And enjoy The Drop!

    I couldn’t care less about Castlestorm VR but, The Long Dark sounds interesting. I’ll definitely have to watch a few videos before I make up my mind and decide to pull the trigger on it.

Patapon Remastered, Dino Frontier and Demetrios this week for me. There are just too many good games coming out to keep up with.

Saw a live stream by The Long Dark devs a while ago, looks like it could be interesting, just wish there were more demos of games to let us get first hand experience before release.

Why bother hyping gamers up for new PS2 games with trophy support if you plan on shipping out 2 every 3-4 months this year.

Dead on Arrival Sony

Do we know if Demetrios is cross buy?

    COWCATGames said:

    July 28th, 11:44 pm

    Hi!
    Yes, it is crossbuy with Vita, and trophies lists are separate :)

It’s all about that Frisky Business!…and anything that comes to vita. Greetings from Vita Island

That’s fine but, where are the GOOD indie games that Sony OFFICIALLY announced forever ago like Gang Beasts, Home Improvisation and Wattam?

I’ve been waiting forever for those and frankly I’m getting sick of most of this generic copy-paste indie garbage.

Like honestly, how long does it take to get licensing rights and stuff? Certainly not years if you’ve already prematurely announced the games on your official channels.

sigh.

    Instead of trashing games that other people have take the time and effort to create that you haven’t played, maybe do a search online for the ones you’re excited about and see what the latest updates are.

If you are curious about Demetrius The Big Cynical Adventure I won’t say to much yet except for the fact that I am really enjoying it.

LATIN AMERICA WANTS JUST CAUSE 3 TOO!!!! DO IT OR WE ALL GONNA CANCEL OUR PLUS!! THIS IS DISRESPECT

    xSoftAssassin said:

    July 31st, 11:29 am

    Sony doesn’t own or have ANYTHING AT ALL to do with Just Cause 3. SQUARE ENIX owns the rights to Just Cause 3. How about, instead of immediately logging onto this website and throwing a temper tantrum like a 2 year old baby, you do some reasearch and find the correct gaming company as well as the correct gaming website to throw your threats at? Also, I’m sure that ALL OF LATIN AMERICA is going to cancel their PS Plus subscriptions because you say so. Please, do yourself a humongous favor and grow up. You’re embarrassing yourself!

    I agree with you, disrispect like Sony use to do with those Ps Vita Owners, but You can’t even say nothing here in the (suppose to be) Sony Ps blog, There is always a Sony fanboy ready for the answer….

Will never understand why they didnt just make the patapon remaster include the whole series, would’ve made more sense.

    ShadowOfEden said:

    July 31st, 5:24 am

    I agree. Patapon 2 was a lot better than the first, so having played all of them, I don’t really think I want to go back to the first one. 3 was good but was too dependent on the online, which is not my cup of tea, especially for a portable game. With the PS4, making a party would be a breeze so I’d really be getting an new experience. So yes, having 2 and 3 as part of the remaster would be better.

Again, super lazy the drop post. Why is there a physical picture of the game case on the front page of this article! who can be this lazy to not find a picture of the game online and post it? Years ago the drop was awesome, now it’s Post 1 picture of the game (the more ambiguous the better), copy and paste game description. Done!

Is anybody getting paid for this??

    pablikenemy79 said:

    August 6th, 11:58 am

    You right…
    I wonder what the devs think about this mess

Kaznasty- said:

July 31st, 11:07 am

I can attest that The Long Dark is amazing! I’ve been playing it for about a year in Early Access on PC and it’s easily one of the best (and hardest) survival games out there but it’s also incredibly satisfying when you bring yourself back from the brink of death.

    satxwolf said:

    Oh man, this title has me eager to play just by the description of “survival”. I love a new challenge. One game from Xbox One that had me playing for hours/days was the State of Decay series (along with their expansions) I’m hoping PlayStation pulls the trigger on some survival/adventure games like that. I will check out YouTube on The Long Dark and decide if it is something similar that I will love. That being said, I’m excited for the title Days Gone.

Will Patapon 2&3 coming in the near future, i hope so. These Patapons cured my boredom for my child self and it was hard enough to ask for a PSP xD got a used one and it broke so I’ve been buying digital ever since.

L337-D4D said:

So happy to have Patapon!
When do we get the rest?

Demetrius looks fun and the plus price is hard to pass up.

So many games, so glad too.

Now if there were just more couch co-op games.
