PSNStores Weekly Roundup: April 29th – May 5th 2013

Posted by on May 5th, 2013 | 0 Comments | Tags:

After finishing Guacamelee! a couple of weeks ago I started to get the urge for some metroidvania again, so I jumped back in and tackled Hard mode to get that coveted platinum trophy. Now I just have to impatiently wait to see what Drinkbox Studios cooks up for the DLC. I also revisited inFamous 2 to try and finish it up in preparation of Infamous: Second Son that will (hopefully) be available at the PS4 launch later this year. See, we editors do play more then just awesome PSN games as also evidenced in the two new features that debuted this week. First we have Editors Plays which has an editor write up their thoughts on a non-PSN game with this edition being what Ben thought of God of War Ascension, and secondly Quick Listens Deadly Premonition, which with the recent release of Deadly Premonition on PS3 Eric has decided to do something special and record blurbs (which will be available on our Podcast feed) after each of his play sessions to talk about the plot and other game elements.

Besides Deadly Premonition this weeks Store Update seen the release of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon which Ben reviewed and rated it 4 1/2 stars saying “If you love a good bad action film, and revel in grandiose idiocy, then have I got the game for you”. If words just aren’t enough you can see some gameplay on the archive of Fridays PSNStores Stream Show along with some Deadly Premonition. It seems like the overabundance of PSM releases last week has made it so there were none this week, but we did get our hands on some news about the upcoming title Rymdkapsel. Besides a video and game info you can also gaze at some Magic Eye posters (yes those autostereograms that were popular in the 90’s) to try and figure out the release date of the game. Finally if you are not too busy tomorrow (Monday, May 6th) Tuesday May 7th at 10 AM Pacific we have a special livestream going on here with the guys over at Drinkbox Studios that should be quite entertaining to watch and listen to.
