  • Finally Crystar!
    Also Tokyo Chronos looks very unique and interesting

  • Wreckfest is on PS4 now!?!?!?

    Bought it in Early Access for PC yeeeeears and years and years ago and i play it every once in a while. Glad they finally finished the game! It’s really fun – the damage on the cars is the best youve ever seen in anything

    • Mercenary09

      Yep and the PS4 version turned out great. Give it a shot.

    • Wow. Strength of the Sword Ultimate was announced so long ago that it was coming to Vita. Pretty sure that ain’t happening anymore.

    • Dang it, I commented in the wrong box and I can’t figure out how to delete it on my phone. Sorry, carry on with your Wreckfest conversation

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Sony needs to rejuvenate the Destruction Derby IP.

  • Lord of the Rings & Control

  • Mercenary09

    This is pretty much the start of the crazy Fall season. So many good games this upcoming week. Planning to get Control, Man of Medan, Knights & Bikes, and already have Wreckfest. Also games like Agent A, Headspun, Waltz of the Wizard, Tokyo Chronus and several others look good too. My poor wallet.

  • Man, Strength of the Sword Ultimate was announced so long ago that it was coming to Vita! Pretty sure it ain’t happening now

  • The fact that this post has NO LINKS to any of the content is just weird.

    • Once the games release the titles become links to their respective PS Store pages

  • Wasn’t The Ninja Warriors Once Again/Ninja Saviors supposed to release this week also? Was the localized game delayed again?

    • NeoStrayCat

      Yeah, however, the US release got delayed to October 15th. The EU/PAL release though is coming out this week without problems.

      However, the delay for the US release was some logistics issue or something like that.

  • Lots of great looking games here!

  • Decay of Logos looks pretty awesome.

  • There are a lot of good choices this week. I’ll have to limit myself to Control and Man of Medan and come back to some of the others (like Hookbots and Wreckfest) further down the road.

  • FONGOOL2099

    Okay, I admit I don’t know how anything works, but I have to say that it is annoying as hell when these blog posts pitch games that don’t have a “preorder” or even a “coming soon” page on PSN so I can add them to my wishlist. Especially when they are supposed to come out in a day or two. I stumble across games in PSN all the time that came out YEARS ago and I’m like “oh yeah! I remember that game! I was really interested in it back in the day, but couldn’t add it to my wishlist and totally forgot about it!” Seems like basic sales theory would suggest that if you actually want to make sales, you make it as easy as possible. Expecting me to remember every kinda-sorta interesting game that maybe I might want to buy at some point rather than just putting an “add to wishlist” button on every one of ’em right here on this page, seems… incompetent. Not to mention that allowing early wishlisting would actually provide Sony with a measurable metric to help gain insight into the interest surrounding a given game. Lose-lose. Next topic: why the hell can’t I add more than 95 games to my wishlist??? I thought Sony wanted my money…

    Wasn’t the lotr game supposed to be out today?
