I really hope that everyone checks out InnerSpace as well as a few other titles this coming week because if you are into exploration games then you will absolutely love InnerSpace. It is very relaxing and def. not for someone that is simply looking for action but if you are into games with meaning and that are very well built and designed then you will love InnerSpace.

    Kang_81 said:

    I’m looking forward to InnerSpace myself, but I’m picking it up on the Switch. Vesta looks interesting as well.

    Bah hum bug! There is only one Innerspace. It stars Dennis quaid, Martin Short and Meg Ryan. Also the doctor from voyager plays a weird cowboy dude.

RISE_UP44 said:

January 12th, 2:05 pm

Other games that I am super eager to check out are StarDrone, Vesta, and Beholder. I’ve spent time with Albert & Otto and can tell you that it is also another awesome Indie Game.

Albert & Otto, Beholder, and Vesta all look interesting to me, but I’m looking forward to finally playing as Sakura on Street Fighter V.

    HeathenFriar said:

    January 13th, 12:18 pm

    Yeah, me too. Sakura looks great, and SF5 seems to finally be approaching its true potential.

I am going to buy Digimon for the Vita, last year was a bit of a mix up, couldn’t find a good title.

FlyGuy4 said:

Trying to find more info on StarDrone for the PSVR and can’t. No gameplay on Youtube, nada. Not a good sign.

I wish PlayStation would update us on the indie games that get delayed. I was very excited to get my hands on planetbase which was supposed to come out on 1/11/18 but I don’t see it anywhere. I really try and support the indie developers so please Sony give us a update on some of these games.

Heyitsjosh said:

January 12th, 5:42 pm

Hey Ryan, where is PlanetBase? Is it delayed? Thanks!

Heyitsjosh said:

January 12th, 5:42 pm

Hey Ryan, I don’t see PlanetBase on the PS4 Store; any idea when it’ll be up? Thanks!

bonghitsallday said:

January 12th, 7:25 pm

Any word on Anamorphine for PSVR? Heard it was releasing the 16th.

    Mercenary09 said:

    January 13th, 9:55 pm

    It was delayed a few months I believe.

Welmosca said:

January 12th, 9:19 pm

Damn who has Viewtiful Joe outfit on SF5?…thats really cool.And I’m in doubt if I should get Arcade Edition or wait for the next version.

    Sam_73 said:

    January 14th, 11:04 am

    There’s only one fighter on SF5 who has that exact pose when he jump kicks the enemy………..

Really wish that this feature covered all content coming to the PS Store each week. There is no good comprehensive list of all games, apps, dlc movies, TV, themes, ect., and it doesn’t really do the store justice. I think this is something the Blog and the PS Store team could work on to really improve the business going forward.

Not looking forward to anything this week. Still working through the Saw collection and Jigsaw on PlayStation Video from last week though, so it’s all good. Looking forward to The Inpatiant on the 21st.

Have a good weekend y’all.

Albert and Otto
Beholder Complete Edition
Kerbal Space Program Enhanced edition
Portal of evil: Stolen Ruines
Innerspace (for the switch game is perfect for a handled)

Saw the headline pic and thought it was a Viewtiful Joe ps2 classic and got super upset when I found out it wasn’t :(

“StarDrone is a high-kinetic action puzzle with a mix of arcade, pinball, breakout, physics, and collect-the-objects.” That description is something else…

Thought Wonderful 101 got a PS4 port nobody told me about there for a second. But then it was ok b/c I realized it was Viewtuful Joe. But it wasn’t that either. I feel doubly trolled.

Tatanka2007 said:

January 13th, 3:24 pm

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory looks interesting. The last one was a good game to chill too.

Definite PASS on Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition. I’m sure that Capcom will have Street Fighter 5 ULTIMATE Arcade Edition out in a few months. Plus, Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 are way better anyway.

Slow time for actual good game releases, eh?

    Tommygunnz98 said:

    January 15th, 12:36 pm

    January 26th is just a round the corner…new Monster Hunter and amazing looking Dragonball Z fighter. Both games will be 8/10 at the very least in my humble (but right this time) opinion!

Was that Viewtiful Joe? Man I made those games my ***** on the PS2. Henshin a go go baby!

    garindamnt said:

Aero_Guardian17 said:

InnerSpace and Kingdom: New Lands for me!

musibat said:

January 15th, 3:45 am

Viewtiful Joe???? nope that was a bummer.i thought we were getting a new Joe game or a remake :P

ImThunderSs said:

January 15th, 12:42 pm

I’m still hoping that they’ll add the original Star Wars Battlefront 2 to the store.

cupcake267 said:

January 15th, 6:04 pm

Planet base.

TooTough_Delta1 said:

January 16th, 7:47 am

We are officially 100% cell phone and games we already bought at least once on a previous system. Why everyone promotes this is beyond me… You could just get a pc with sream, quit showig these devs we like getting shafted.

cupcake267 said:

January 16th, 7:59 am

11am est 1/16/18 the only new game in store is kerbal. Who runs psn? Can we get someone else to? Oh Ryan I hope it’s not you….. Sony is trash now haha this sucks

NickNacca611 said:

January 16th, 8:57 am

Where. Is. Planetbase? Someone should at least update us or respond to the comments asking about it.

    bryanh7 said:

    January 16th, 11:09 am

    Ya, not sure what’s going on with the guys that run the psn and the blog but they do a very bad job of keeping us informed on delayed games. I realize they are very busy but talking 5 minutes out of there busy schedule just to give us a update would really mean alot to most people.

djsaiyan said:

I don’t know if it’s just me, but every time I hit the “new this week” button all I’m getting is a janky empty screen. Kinda hard to browse what’s new this week when I can’t even see any of it.

Dumping my cache and cookies did nothing, and I can’t see what’s new on my phone either.

tlc7629 said:

January 17th, 5:43 pm

Beholder sounds very interesting. I will have to check it out. And thanks to everyone here who left comments about Innerspace. I never heard of it but the insightful comments on it have convinced me that it is something I will probably like. Happy Gaming, everyone.

LonKAT08 said:

January 17th, 7:21 pm

Innerspace looks really bad. Almost embarrassing. I do, however look forward to StreetFighter!!

SirRealDeal said:

January 18th, 12:50 pm

Happy Drummer. Seriously.

Hopefully, The Inpatient is still coming in five days.
