This Week in PlayStation: GotY May Cry

Go vote for the best games of 2014! Feel free to share your picks in the comments — I’ll do the same.

A few highlights that didn’t quite make the top ten this week: Sid went hands-on with Evolve’s terrifyingly graceful new monster, the Wraith, Square Enix revealed a lust-worthy Collector’s Edition for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Supergiant and Roll7 (two of my favorite studios!) stopped by to wish everyone a happy holiday, and Road Not Taken got a new update that a) you can download for free and b) adds a bunch of new stuff.

I’m back on the Destiny grind since The Dark Below came out — see you in the Iron Banner? I also finally got around to checking out the first episode of Tales From the Borderlands. I already regret one of the decisions I made, but I will not go back and replay it. I will stand by my choices! I’m this close to logging back into Final Fantasy XIV after all the Heavensward announcements they just made at Tokyo Fan Fest (three new jobs, Alexander raid dungeon, new playable race), but once I do I fear I may not be able to log out. Maybe I’ll try the new Destiny raid one more time…

What are you playing?

  • I’m playing: Destiny, Tales from the Borderlands
  • I’m watching: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Cowboy Bebop
  • I’m listening to: Cowboy Bebop soundtrack(s)

  • True to my word, here’s how I voted in the GotY polls:

    Best PS4 Game – Destiny
    Best PS3 Game – Dark Souls II
    Best PS Vita Game – Hohokum
    Best Digital Release – Transistor
    Studio of the Year – Square Enix (shout-outs to MachineGames and Sucker Punch)
    Best PS Plus Game – Binding of Isaac
    Most Anticipated 2015 – Batman: Arkham Knight (reallllly hard to choose between this and Bloodborne)

  • I’m playing Phantom Brave on my PS2

  • GOTY for the Vita deserves to be ( in my opinion): Velocity 2x…
    It was an amazing game and best of all it was free to PS+ owners, I got Velocity Ultra for $1 on sale and got 2x for free ain’t that awesome. Velocity 2x has an amazing concept that never has been done before, combing a shooter and a platformed into one fast paced crazy adventure. The story is captivating and as you progress you get new equipment and new ways to play and pass each stage. The final stages where especially captivating. It was worth buying the dlc to enjoy the game a bit more after the awesome main campaign. To conclude I can say that the game has amaizing replay value as you try to beat your best time and the time set by your friends.

    Merry Christmas Sony and to all PS gamers out there.
