The PlayStation Recap

45 8

With virtually all my free time going to Fallout: New Vegas, I haven’t had much time for anything else this week — except for the delightful PSN dragon game Hoard (and it looks like I’m not the only one).

Otherwise, it’s been a big week with the launch of God of War: Ghost of Sparta on PSP, plus MAG: Escalation and The Walking Dead debuting on PSN. Next week’s shaping up to be a real earth-shaker with The Fight: Lights Out hitting PlayStation Move and Call of Duty: Black Ops landing on PS3. What are you looking forward to?
