  • Enjoy the Drop!

  • hi Ryan, can’t wait to play Assassin Creed Syndicate this week Friday. i also getting Life is strange episode 5 and Tales from the borderland episode 5..

  • This week on PSN:

    Waifus (Zestiria) and Husbandos (Code: Realize)

    something for everyone

  • I like the Arcade Archives concept, but I think it could have been improved by a better emulation (more visual options, online play ….etc) and a better library.

    Some suggestions:

    Shinobi – Sega
    Shadow Dancer – Sega
    Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder – Sega
    In the Hunt – Irem
    GunForce 2 – Irem
    Captain Commando – Capcom
    Three Wonders – Capcom
    Elevator Action Returns – Square Enix
    Contra – Konami
    Crime Fighters – Konami
    TMNT / TMNT Turtles in Time – Konami (more like wishful thinking but would be great if done)
    Gang Wars – SNK
    P.O.W. – SNK
    Street Smart – SNK

    Thanks for the updare.

    • why you want play very old games ? no wondering why

    • If you have a PSP, Vita, or PS3, you can get those SNK titles on PSN (as Minis). I have Street Smart myself and I’m surprised at how well it plays as a Mini.

    • You may as well include: Virtual On HD (that was on Xbox Live), Radiant Silver gun HD, Dragon Force, Panzer Dragoon Orta HD, Gun Valkyrie on top of all that. Playing Virtual On with twin sticks would be awesome on the PS4.

    • @Shogun00: yeah I have them too but the lack of 2 players is a huge turn off

      @NeoMahi: uh I would love to get these too along with Guardian Heroes but I think they are outside the Arcade Archives category (classic 80’s arcade games)

    • Yes!
      I’d say yes to most of those as long as the emulation is accurate and they have some nice extras. M2 does an excellent job so it would be very if they handled it.

      I’d love to see these
      Sega Arcade Classics:
      Golden Axe
      Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder
      Shadow Dancer
      Virtua Racing HD
      Space Harrier
      Planet Harriers

      Neo-Geo games: (NAM-1975, Metal Slug X, Sengoku 1-3, Super Spy, Top Player’s Golf, 2020 Super Baseball, Blue’s Journey, Riding Hero, Cyber-Lip)

      And others such as: Marble Madness 1 & 2 (Cerny!), Track & Field, Midway classics…. and so on..

  • What an excellent lineup! Really looking forward to Tales of Zestiria the most! Too many games I tell ya’. ^-^

  • A nice week of games, it has a mix of different types of games.

  • There are so many games I want to buy and play but so little time.

    Ryan will you be playing Divinity when it drops next week?

  • Waiting for these PS2 Classics:
    – Silent Hill 2/3/The Room/Origins (i don’t like HD remasters)
    – Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria
    – Xenosaga 1/2/3

    • You are probably one of few that does not like HD remasters. I am the opposite, I prefer HD remaster over originals. I know that Silent Hill 2 and 3 HD were kind of a mess, but the originals will never be released. First off, the HD editions (even if they are messy) were released and the company will not go and release the originals after that. Second, I believe that Konami had lost the original game code which resulted in the sub HD port as they had to write the code from scratch. Third, this is a Konami game, and Konami is kind of abandoning consoles for the most part. Might as well not ask for any Silent Hill game (new or old).

  • Wtf Code REalize is out this week!! I already preordered Tales of Zestiria the game look awesome .

  • oh man, when is the next chapter of King’s Quest coming out? My kids and I are anxious to get back to Daventry!

  • Wow, AC:Syndicate is out already?! So many games, so little time… :(

  • I’m getting both Guitar Hero Live and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate this week. Frankly, I’m more excited for Syndicate as I’ve been a huge fan of Assassin’s Creed for years now, even going so far as to pre-order Syndicate from GameStop the day it was announced. That being said, I’m shockingly excited for GH Live. I’ve been playing the demo at my local GameStop for a little while now and am enjoying the crap out of it. The controller definitely takes some getting used to, but when you do, it feels fantastic.

  • zestiria 4me

  • Cool Drop! Any word on the other three games in the Hasbro Family Fun Pack? I see Monopoly Plus in the pic.

  • AC needs to take a few years off…and who would buy it at launch after the mess that Unity was?

    • Come on, now. Unity had the burden of the first attempt at multiplayer and development for multiple generations. It WAS a crap shoot that was a bit over the top but in general their releases are about as solid as any other AAA. Once it was patched it was a great game… but Syndicate looks way better.

    • I agree. Unity made me mad in so many ways, and I just played it last month. AC games come out so fast they end up $20 or less within 6 months.

    • I didn’t buy Unity because I was busy with Destiny at the time. I guess I got spared. Not getting Syndicate in any hurry because have too many other games to play, and seems better to wait for these annual release AAA games to get patched before playing.

  • im so psyched for ac syndicate. i hope we get to drive a Mercedes Benz in this game.

  • Don’t know if anyone knows this but…
    The Order 1886
    Killzone: Shadow
    Little Big Planet 3
    And couple more games are now $19.99
    Don’t know if it’s a price drop or discount. But it’s weird Sony never mention these price changes.

  • Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations is also coming to 3DS, but not Vita. I am hoping to see it on Vita at some point.

  • FINALLY THE FIRST PROPER JRPG FOR PS4! Can’t wait to pick up Tales Tuesday ‘

  • Hello Greg and Colin!
    Kinda Funny!

  • And Life is Strange Episode 5
    Tales From the Borderlands Episode 5
    and GTAV Online Lowrider Update.

  • so when will the twitch app drop?

    • Probably in Nov or Dec. Could be released during Paris Games Week which Sony is having a big conference at this year. Its next week I believe.

  • Assassins Creed Syndicate!!! The wait is almost over!

  • Definitely can’t wait to play Primal Carnage: Extinction looks fun as hell to play and I get to play as my favorite dino, Spinosaurus! Any idea what the price is?

  • Oh yes. My paycheck is going to get used up. Does this make me irresponsible? Yes it does and I”M EFFING PROUD OF IT!!!

  • Code:Realize & ToZ

  • I dont usually comment but i had to do so now to say oh yeah Tales of Zestriria PS4!!!!

  • Looking forward to Life is strange finale as well as the tales from the borderlahnds finale An idea on a price for the rocket league BTTF DLC?

  • Guitar Hero Live for me then next month Fallout 4…that’s all for this year although I’d love to get more of course lol but they should keep me going for the fall and winter.

  • Celebrating my birthday with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate!

  • any infos about the upcoming halloween sale ?

  • One of the best Drops of the year – I need more money to continue my RPG fix, but Guitar Hero also has my interest. Greatness is Here.

  • Is life is strange the final episode releasing tomorrow?

    • This is confirmed per an awesome new final episode trailer they put out. Find it on YouTube on the Life is Strange channel.


  • Adventure Time: Finn & Jake Investigations ( + Trials)? What does + Trials mean? Is there a playable demo for Adventure Time Finn &Jake Investigations?

  • More PS1 classics please!

    Saga Frontier 1 and 2
    Vandal Hearts 1 and 2
    Jade Cocoon

    And make Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain playable on the Vita please!

  • i dont see Life is Strange episode 5….:( why is that?

  • Can you please confirm is Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 is releasing today or tomorrow? I was soooo bummed that it didn’t have a midnight release like previous episodes, stood up most of the night waiting to just be disappointed, now on the EU blog it shows 10/21 as the release.

  • Ooh, I played Forced (then “FORCED” for some reason) when it came out on PC .. I want to say that was early 2014ish. It’s a great 4 player co-op game, quite fun.

  • Holy smokes you guys finally released One Piece themes for the PS4! They’re rather outdated (Going Merry instead of Thousand Sunny and such old Wanted Posters), but it’s still a great step forward!

  • highlights are important, I get it, but some things are missing, such as Tales of the boarderlands episode 5, life is strange episode 5 … think the list you were producing in the past was better =/
