Welcome back! August was a heck of a month for game launches — let’s see who came out on top (besides people who like to play good games, of course).
Madden NFL 18 was the most downloaded game on PS4, followed by Hellblade and Sonic Mania. Undertale (a recent favorite of mine) led the PS Vita list, and Superhot VR topped the PlayStation VR chart.
Miss any of the games on this list? Head over to PlayStation Store to pick ’em up! At least one of them will fill you with determination!
Knack’s (almost) back, baby! Join the Blogcast crew as they prepare for two of the most anticipated sequels of the year. Also, Sid reports back from The Crimson Court, Justin learned to embrace a life of pacifism in Undertale, and oh so much more. Enjoy!
Destiny fans worldwide are stocking up on snacks, booking time off work, and bargaining with loved ones in anticipation of Bungie’s long-awaited sequel, launching next week. We’re looking for any last scraps of info we can squeeze out of the team behind Destiny 2 before it’s time to dive in and embark on our quest for vengeance against
Gary Glenn Gil Ghaul.
Earlier this year, we travelled to Amsterdam to talk to Guerrilla’s audio team about the importance of sound in Horizon Zero Dawn and the ways the game makes use of 3D audio technology built into the Platinum Wireless Headset. The resulting video, which you can watch above, provides a brief but tantalizing glimpse into the world of audio creation.
With Uncharted: The Lost Legacy out Tuesday on PS4, we’ve curated a collection of wallpapers optimized for your desktop (oooh, 4K!), tablet, or phone. Click the corresponding link under each image to download the full-resolution image.
If you haven’t pre-ordered The Lost Legacy yet, you still have a few days to do so and snag a download of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for PS4!
So adorn your devices with a new wallpaper or two, watch the launch trailer above, and don’t miss Naughty Dog’s latest adventure when it launches next week.
Woah! Crash Bandicoot’s long-awaited N. Sane Trilogy spun to the top of the PS4 download charts last month, followed closely by Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (there’s still time to catch up before Shadow of War!). The insanely stylish (and just awesome overall) Superhot VR took the top spot for PlayStation VR, which makes sense since the game can, ya know, control the flow of time and everything. Seems like an unfair advantage, to be honest.
Please enjoy this interview with Greg Kasavin, recorded on location at Supergiant’s San Francisco headquarters, and the following PlayStation (me) vs. Supergiant (Greg) battle royale in Pyre’s robust local multiplayer mode. I won’t spoil who wins, but I will make the excuse that he spent the last few years making the darn game, c’mon.
Special guest host Greg Kasavin from Supergiant Games joins the team to talk about Pyre, and his experience working in game development. What does it mean to write for a story-based game? How does the team at Supergiant come up with their ideas? And how tall is Greg’s Backlog of Shame right now?
