Welcome to another PlayStation Store weekly update. This week, Telltale Games has released the fourth episode of their second Walking Dead adaptation, The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins. It is available to download on the PS3 and the Vita starting today.
Also available today is Oddworld: New N Tasty, the PS4 remake of the PSone classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. The world is much more receptive to quirky platformers in 2014 than it was in 1997, so I predict big things for the return of Oddworld. The game is also in development for the PS3 (and the PC and the Xbox One and the Wii U), though no release date has been announced.
But speaking of multiplatform releases, a pair of games from this week’s update are available on both the PS3 and the Vita (though neither are Cross-Buy compatible). Entwined brings its bird/fish flying to the PS3 and the Vita after a successful PS4 launch during the E3 Expo and Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland is a remake of the 2010 PS3 RPG of the same name (sans the Plus).
More details about all of these titles (as well as a few others) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Store (don’t forget the PS Store Play pre-order promotion starts today too). (more…)
Sony’s surprise E3 announcement, Entwined, is now available to download from the PlayStation Store. The gorgeous tube flyer (seriously, check out that trailer above) will be joined by a variety of PS3 and Vita titles including Enemy Front (a WWII shooter for the PS3), Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2 (the PS2 Classic RPG, now available on the PS3), and Soul Sacrifice Delta (the ultimate edition of Keiji Inafune’s Vita monster hunter).
Next up on Sony’s E3 announcement block is Entwined, a trippy-looking PS4 title where you control two phoenix-looking souls with the DualShock 4’s sticks. The game looks beautiful – a lot like Rez – but a lot more tranquil.
Surprise – the PS4 game is available right now for $9.99 – so go get it!
Do you smell that? The air is filled with the scent of trademark applications and secret meetings and teasing hints. That’s the smell of speculation… and an imminent E3 Expo.
Sony and Microsoft have been busy little beavers over the last few weeks, trademarking five new game titles between them. As with all issues regarding trademarks, it’s important to remember that these applications do not represent confirmation of a game in development, merely a title that Sony or Microsoft may turn into a game someday. That said, let’s get to speculating.
Back in March, Microsoft registered a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for “Secrets and Treasure.” No additional information was revealed in the filing, but “Secrets and Treasure” has the feel of an Xbox Live Arcade game, doesn’t it? More recently, the consolemaker filed applications for “Screamride” and “Eden Falls.” If I had to guess, I would peg “Screamride” as some kind of racing game and “Eden Falls” as a horror title.
Over at Sony Computer Entertainment, the publisher has filed trademark applications for “Entwined” and “Kill Strain.” While “Kill Strain” sounds like the type of shoot ’em up that people typically equate with Microsoft, “Entwined” definitely has that artsy-but-not-too-artsy vibe of a game published by Sony.
Hopefully we’ll learn more about all of these games at this year’s E3 Expo. And, one more time, it’s important to remember that these applications do not represent confirmation of a game in development, merely a title that Sony or Microsoft may turn into a game someday. And my speculation should just be viewed as guesswork, and does not represent how these games may develop in the future.
