  • So pumped for Bloodstained

  • rafael_martines

    Can’t wait to play Crash :D

  • Crash is the main game Im looking at lol

  • iKickBullies

    Crash Team Racing is already my fav kart racer. Can’t wait for Nitro fueled. Loved CNK too growing up.

  • CTR launches one day early digitally?! When did they announce that?

    • iKickBullies

      It’s probably a midnight release for some and maybe 3 hours before friday whereever this post is made at, so it’s technically released thursday in some places. Even if it’s hours before friday. It was like that for Tales of Vesperia on Steam. I bought on Steam and it unlocked maybe 10 hours early. So essentially I had it the day before and was playing while my PS4 and switch friends had to wait. Times kinda make the preorder and release times weird

  • NotACouchPotato

    I’ve got the Nitros Oxide edition of CTR: Nitro-Fueled pre-loaded and ready as soon as it releases. Next weekend will be nothing but racing!

  • 198X comes out 6/20

    • Never mind, they announced today (lol) on Twitter that it’ll be a week late, the Drop is correct.

  • B:ROTN, CTR, J, and MMM preordered. Will most likely also pick up VS, SB, LSL, and CoS as well.

  • Crash and Judgment for me.
    Sadly, Neptunia RPG is released FIVE DAYS EARLY on PC.
    Add Netflix adding Evangelion finally, and I’m pretty much sitting with my PS4 Pro.

  • Do Jeff still work at PlayStation? I think I seen a E3 video with him wearing a Xbox shirt. “Not that’s its anything wrong with that”.

    • Mercenary09

      Jeff Rubenstein? He has been gone from PlayStation for years and years now. He left to go work at Xbox.

    • lol he’s been gone for a long time now. Probably got paid more to work for xbox.

  • The only game I’m interested this week (198x), you don’t even mention it.

  • ScimonFromQuebec

    My daughters and I are looking forward to Vacation Simulator !

  • Citizens of Space! As in “yes, the criminally underrated RPG Citizens of Earth got a sequel”! I am so ready for this!!!!!!!

  • Tatanka2007

    I can’t imagine Judgment being anything other than a stellar game. They assembled a great cast for the English VO. Graphically the previews look amazing. The gameplay is said to improve on the already solid Yakuza series. Sony does things right by bringing us great exclusives such as Judgment that are single player experiences.

  • CenterCoastVideo

    Being a very old feller – I was shocked to see a reboot of LSL .. way to much time spent on adventures back in the 80’s
    on this awesome game. I will be first inline to see my friend from long ago again on the 19th

    • The new LSL has absolutely nothing to do with the classic Sierra games! It’s more a collection of “sexy” mini-games as far as I know. The quality standard of the new games are also very, very low.

      Would be very careful before buying it…

  • So is CTR running at 60fps?

  • Such an amazing lineup this week

    • Wingman_SRK

      Looks like a great week of releases. Looking forward to Bloodstained and Crash Team Racing!

  • ExtremeBlue90

    CTR, Judgment & Bloodstained are my picks for June.

  • Wanna try Bloodstained I think it will be good. But i”m really hyped for Sinking City, it should be one of the best games of the year

  • Anyone have info on the digital release? The game still comes up as “Pre-Order” on PSN and should have been available today.
