PlayStation Around The Web: What We Read

38 12

I’m back home from Fantastic Fest in Austin, a relatively new movies and indie games event. My time there this week cemented a couple of things in my brain:

PlayStation.Blog Fantastic Fest Meetup in Austin, TX: September 22nd, 2011

1) The future and present of gaming on PlayStation Network looks really bright. PSN was a sponsor of the Fantastic Fest Arcade, and we brought along games like Journey, PixelJunk 4am and Sidescroller, PAYDAY: The Heist, Retro/Grade, Closure, Sideway, and more. While some of the titles won’t be seen until next year, one of the featured titles, Rochard, will be here in just two days. IGN is a fan.

2) California needs to get its act together when it comes to barbecue. We have meat here, we can get the mesquite. Why can’t we have what Austin has? Not fair.

There are a number of impressions and pics from Fantastic Fest in the links below, and more are yet to be posted, including a couple of our own that you’ll see early this week.
