PSNStores Weekly Roundup: July 15th – 21st 2013

Posted by on July 21st, 2013 | 3 Comments | Tags:

With this summers wedding season now in effect it means me getting dressed up in stylish (but uncomfortable) clothes to have a great time. But it also means lots of traveling for me, which is of course a perfect time for Velocity Ultra on the Vita. This week I started my perfect run through of the missions and now only have the last two missions left. It won’t be long til I have that platinum trophy (figuratively) in my hands. I also had planned to play some Picbox on my travels since it made its return to the PSM store in this weeks update, but Velocity Ultra was having none of that. But if you have been looking for a good picross puzzle game on the go this seems to be a great choice according to Curtis’s review of the game.  You can also check out some gamplay in the newest PSM Quick Play along with some of the other big releases this week.

If you remember Nick’s hands on preview of Splice from E3 he talked about a Q&A with the developers about their upcoming PSN version of the game. Well that Q&A is now live on the site so read on to hear more about the devs Cipher Prime and the process of bringing the game from concept to reality. Fans of classic game revivals also got some great news this week as CAPCOM has announced a new Strider game! You can check out some gameplay in the post and look forward to a PS3/4 release in early 2014.

To finish off this weeks roundup I am happy to talk about our Pinball Arcade tournament  that will be starting this week. A new table will be selected each Sunday for the next 8 weeks and you will have from that Monday till Sunday at 3:00 PM CST to post your best score on the table. Participants will receive points based on how they do at the end of each week and the top player at the end of the tournament will walk away with some PSN cash. Not too bad for spending some time with one of the best virtual pinball games ever made. Check out the post for the complete rules and make sure to jump in on Monday July 29th when the tournament starts.
