Really hoping Absolver isn’t another indie disappointment,looks promising, and Yakuza Kiwami will be awesome if its even half as good as the original.

Solh0und said:

MapleStory said:

Star Wars (Episode III, Starfighter, The Clone Wars, Battlefront, Battlefront II), Dragon Ball Z (BT1, 2, 3), Dirge of Cerberus, Romancing SaGa, Front Mission 4, Dawn of Mana, and Sony still has a ton of their own.

The Metronomicon is a rhythm + rpg game with a dope soundtrack, that’s all you need to know. Plus it has two player co-op.

Superstone said:

Can’t wait to play Windjammers on my Vita.

Please Sony give us another handheld to play these PS2 games on.

Question, whats the point of releasing SNK arcade games in the Arcade Archives if you’re going to release the PS2 Anthologies?

X-GALVEZ-X said:

August 25th, 6:43 pm

But what about GangBeats?

UberCactuar said:

August 25th, 7:36 pm

Windjammers! And white day! Haven’t played that one for almost a decade now. That’s a great, tense, atmospheric horror game. Wonder how it holds up, or if it’s been touched up!

KBG29 said:

August 25th, 8:39 pm

What! No Jak II? I was kind of hoping they would drop each week.

At any rate, here are my grabs for this week;

PSVR
-Sparc

PS4
-Everybody’s Golf! =)

Gonna skip out on Wonder Woman. Still interested when 4K HDR content is coming to PS Video on PS4 Pro though.

So many games, so little time… X-Morph Defense has had my eye for a bit now, can’t wait to finally give it a go.

Redout looks really good, was released on PC last year, got great reviews, going to pick that up.

Everybody’s Golf- I am waiting for reviews because this is not a traditional hot shots golf game. Hoping the embargo is lifted before release.

How many courses/holes and challenges will there be that are created by the developers? Just concerned about an awesome arcade series that might count on solely an open world online community.

August 27th, 12:12 pm

i personally would still love to see some of the older games from ps2 make it onto the ps4, the legacy of kain games like soul reaver 2, army men rts, lord of the rings the third age, jaws, and that is only to name a few of what i would really love to see available on the system, maybe even a revisiting back the everquest like champions of norrath and champions return to arms.
