PSNStores Weekly Roundup: August 27th – September 2nd 2012

Posted by on September 2nd, 2012 | 0 Comments | Tags:

With PAX Prime going on this weekend we have new trailers for Strike Suit Zero and the recently announced Plants vs. Zombies table for Zen Pinball 2 which is coming to PSN next week. Besides Zen Pinball 2 fans of virtual pinball have something else to look forward to next week: Table Pack 3 for The Pinball Arcade will be releasing along with a patch that add trophies for the DLC tables.

Speaking of patches Vita Firmware 1.80 released this week which allows users to finally play PS1 classics on the go. Although the list of supported titles is missing a lot of classics (at least in NA) there are still a few games currently supported that are worth (re)experiencing (might I suggest Wild Arms, a great RPG and the first PS1 game I owned).  As a bonus unannounced feature the patch also allows you to control PSP games using the touch screen. For fans of free to play awesome games the patch also allows the trophies for Treasures of Montezuma Blitz to finally sync with the trophy server.

A new title was announced that is sure to excite classic RPG fans: Dragon Fantasy Book II is the new game coming from Muteki Corporation that is styled like those great 16 Bit RPG’s we all used to play. The game will be released on PSN and Vita (#yopo) in 2013. Now from classic looking games to an actual classic (albeit from a different generation) CAPCOM has announced the release date for Okami HD. You will be able to play Amaterasu’s journey all over again when the game is released in October for the price of $19.99.

This week we have a review for Deep Black, a third person shooter that Curtis ..ah.. didn’t really enjoy. At all.

With Chris, Brad, and Eric attending PAX Prime this weekend we have a new episode of the PSN Stores podcast that reveals what they have seen and played on the first day, including titles Guacamelee, Frobisher Says, Knytt Underground, and the elusive Wake Up Club. Heisters out there who have been wondering what you get for laying down money on the new Wolf Pack content for PAYDAY: The Hesit, Chris has got you covered with a comprehensive hands on with the new DLC. Also like always we have your global store update for this week and a sneak peek at next week’s NA update. All of this and more in this edition of the PSNStores Weekly Roundup:
