The Drop: New PlayStation Games for November 6, 2018

Featuring Tetris Effect, Déraciné, The Forest, 11-11: Memories Retold, and more

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

What if the creator of groundbreaking audiovisual masterpieces Rez and Lumines made a Tetris game? Tetris Effect, from Tetsuya Mizuguchi and Enhance Games, is the answer to that question.

Experience the new “Journey” mode or a number of “Effect” modes, including an unpredictable new Mystery mode that’s sure to keep even the most hardcore Tetris veterans on their toes. And for the ultimate immersive experience, strap on your PS VR headset and a set of headphones to be enveloped completely by the mesmerizing sights and sounds of Tetris Effect.

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

The Forest for sure, and probably Jagged Alliance and Omen of Sorrow. Great week!

Nekopara……..Sony, why do not you simply cancel this game, as it already happened with another in particular…

Any word on pricing for The Forest? The PC version had some pretty great reviews so I fully intend on buying it.

Tomoprime said:

The PSN Store out of no where just added Digital Sales Tax for NY. It would have been nice to get a warning beforehand as there were many great sales ending today that people could have used the day before!

    Funny my friend just got a email a few days ago about that. Maybe they haven’t gotten to you yet. We had it for a few here in Philadelphia. It really sucks.

    I can understand state tax for physical goods bought at local retailers but sales tax for a bunch of copied bytes that we can’t resell or lend out is nuts. And you need to free up your own disc space to boot. Rats even all PlayStation services is being taxed.

    Game Over Man LoL!

Tetris Effect and Omen of Sorrow! Nice week. Curious to see how Road Redemption is. Hard to make a good Road Rash successor.

forest is not VR?

    Tomoprime said:

    November 3rd, 4:32 pm

    Forest is a Unity3d game.

Being (probably) the only person to be interested in PS4 Carnival Games does it suport the PS Move/PS Camera?

KBG29 said:

Carnival Games has been out on PSVR for a long time. A non VR version of this game is kind of pointless. PSVR uses the PS Move Controllers, and it is a blast.

DON’T BUY NEKOPARA PEOPLE! Screw you for censoring Japanese games when they were perfectly fine before! Just cancel this release so people can move on, but hey what do I know. Any Western AAA title with fan service content in it is a-ok!

    Mr_Pokirby said:

    November 8th, 6:45 am

    Isn’t the Steam version also censored? Or did they change that once Steam announced they were going to start allowing porn games?

Grip is pretty much an updated version of Rollcage for the PS1. Take a gander of it on YouTube.

Out of these I am interested in Steel Rats and Tetris Effect. The Forest might be good, but I am not sure I would enjoy it.

I hope The Forest is only $20.

WHY CAN’T WE PRE-ORDER GRIP?!
This game has been available for pre-order on the EU store for weeks. WTF?! We’re just not able to get the pre-order bonuses. That’s fked up! I really wanted to pre-order that game and it turns out Sony only gives EU users the privilege and screw us, right? smh

What’s the price of Road Redemption?

sirtintly said:

November 5th, 11:31 pm

No mention of World of Final Fantasy Maxima?

It’s official. Sony has no respect for ANY SNK classics anymore. I no longer have a reason to spend any money whatsoever on PSN. Time to switch to a console that doesn’t cater to the TRENDY.
