PSNStores Weekly Roundup: April 21st – 27th 2014

Posted by on April 28th, 2014 | 0 Comments | Tags:

Last week was dominated by headlines related to retro gaming. PS4’s getting some coin-op classics with the announcement of the Arcade Archives series. An ESRB rating has hinted at a potential PSone Classics release of Suikoden II. The nearly decade-old PSP is getting a new 16-bit inspired RPG called End of Serenity. But the biggest story on PSNStores was Sony enabling and subsequently disabling the ability for Vita users to download almost all PSP/PSone content on the PlayStation Store.

Elsewhere on the site, Chris reviewed the highly anticipated Octodad: Dadliest Catch as well as Vita’s free-to-play Destiny of Spirits. Curtis meant to review Demon Gaze, but a corrupted save file meant he could only post his impressions on the game.
