I owned Shadow of the Colossus on PS2 and PS3. The PS4 version looks so good, I might just get it again.

Mercenary Kings. Say what, a game on Vita that I might actually be interested in? Sadly, I am not interested in the jrpgs or some of the weird Japanese Vita imports (I prefer a Capcom type Japanese games like Mega Man or Devil May Cry). Mercenary Kings and Steamworld Dig 2 are the two recent games, that I might dust off the Vita for. More games like these please.

I know to a lot of people this is not important but it is to me. Please can you also re-release the PS2 version of Shadow of the Colossus? I wish that when a game is remastered or remake, the original version is also re-released too. Thanks.

    I’m not criticizing but I am curious. Why would you want a PS2 version of SotC? This is a faithful remake and is basically just a PS4 version of the same game that was on PS2. I suppose for nostalgia sake maybe? It wouldn’t make much sense financially for Sony to release a PS2 classic of a $40 PS4 game they are releasing at the same time.

    gohan16ken said:

    @DeGarmo2, faithful and exact are not the same thing. It is like saying, why watch the theatrical version of the original Star Wars trilogy when the special edition is a faithful remastered. There are changes to this version. Therefore, I believe both the original and the remastered/remake version of every game should be re-released. It does not have to be day and date but eventually. This is not a new idea. You can play both the X360 and XB1 version of Rayman Legends, BioShock series, Stick of Truth, etc. You can play both the original Gears of War and the remastered version on XB1. SNK and Hamster have been re-releasing both the console and arcade versions of several games. There are two versions of Art of Fighting, Metal Slug, etc in the PSN store. Nintendo sells both the original and remaster of several Mario and Zelda games. Choice and options are good!

    You can play the original SotC on PS Now,

    gohan16ken said:

    February 9th, 4:46 am

    @Frankyle09 the original SotC came out on PS2. PS2 games are not on PS Now. The SotC that is on PS Now is the PS3 HD remastered. I am asking about the PS2 version. And if it is was on PS Now, I won’t use it.

    Lol man the PS3 version of SotC is the same version of the PS2 one…its just in HD.Unlike this PS4 version which has changes like you mentioned.

Hell yeah, Mercenary Kings for Vita finally, and Shadow of the Colossus. Already crossbought and pre-ordered :)

i’d recommend you guys to buy dragon sinker because its a good 8bit nostalgic rpg and it has a good difficulty curve.i already have this game on steam.so if you really want to play an old and nostalgic turn based rpg then this game could be for you.enjoy :)

I found out that Mercenary Kings Reloaded will be a free update for folks who already own the original. I picked this up when it was on the PS+ Instant Game Collection at no extra charge, so double win. It’s good if you can team up with some people, online or local co-op.

Getting Dragon Sinker. Currently playing through the old Dragon Quest games and this reminds me of that.

    Check the blog post from 1/31. They just announced Knack and Rime on PS4 to be released as IGC titles on 2/6 when the store updates.

I am interested in Mercenary Kings. It has a good title. Will check price once released. Hopefully it is about 30 – 50 dollars. Thx.⛱

    magicmix13 said:

    February 2nd, 7:21 pm

    Current price in NA store is $19.99 US, so I wouldn’t anticipate it being much more, maybe same price, we’ll see.

Shadow of the Colossus is the MUST play game of the week by far. Can’t wait to get my special edition copy Tuesday. Other than that Aegis Defenders and Marooners look interested as well.

While there are some good stuff like Shadow of the Colossus coming back, and Mercenary Kings updating to the Reloaded Edition (and on Vita too), the only thing the comment section is missing…

Why you guys no mention anything of Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st], lol. Either way, gonna be ready to check that out on release.

Where are th VR games? There’s supposed to be 100 new ones this year

Wow, a new release for PS3! I still enjoying gaming on my PS3. Whoever does sales for digital has all but abandoned PS3 in the U.S. Discounts are almost non-existent for PS3 titles, not that PS4 or Vita are getting much love. Sure, PS4 is where the main attractions are these days, but it seems foolish not to encourage sales while there is still time. I think they have abandoned PS3 in an attempt to promote PS Now. Until they offer better streaming and the ORIGINAL game, not a water-downed version, i.e. reduced res and reduced audio, PS Now is a no-go for many of us.

Anyway, this week looks rather unappealing except for Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late, love that title lol, and maybe SotC, if you haven’t played it already. Perhaps we’ll have a better line-up of discounts this week.

Very interested to play the remake of Shadow of Colossus since I haven’t got the chance to beat the game during PS2 era, now it’s the chance to enjoy it with better visuals & sounds.

Poderia fazer Remake de Jogos do PS2 para o PS Vita ja que não querem gastar muito com Jogos AAA . Existe muitos jogos do PS2 que foi sucesso ( Under 2 Need For Speeedy ) ( Tony Hauwk Pro Skate 1,2,3,4 Under 1,2 ) só jogão de mil maraviha que ia fazer as vendas subi , mais nem isso eles pensa.
