  • I have been really impressed with how many great Indie Games have been coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Store lately and at decent price points as well..

  • Are we getting another Golden Week sale this year?

  • Kate’s the heroin, huh? The game must be pretty addictive.

  • Anyone know if Period:Shackles of Amadeus is a Visual novel, or one of those Otome games

    • It’s an otome visual novel with choice-based combat, apparently. Here’s the website. >

    • Otome are visual novels. Kind of like rectangle is a square but a square is not a rectangle. Otome are just visual novels that have male cast dating emphasis.

  • “Heroin”

    Ha ha, Ryan! I’m guessing that’s the publisher’s copy.

  • Is Puyo Puyo Tetris really not digital? That’s a bummer. I’m looking forward to that game a lot and hope it’s available digitally some day.

    • 100% of ps4 are digital at release. that a rule for ps4. they can delist it later and keep physical only.

    • “100% of ps4 are digital at release.”

      That’s already false

    • nope that a fact for ps4 game, vs 50% are physical and digital (including indie). sony told publisher all game release for ps4 need to have a digital version. That why game like Kingdoms heart have a digital version on ps4 and never had a ps3 digital version.

    • im not talking about compilation of game. each game got a digital release seperatly.

    • Elk, you’re mistaken on this one. Puyo Puyo Tetris wasn’t even digital when it came out in Japan like 3 years ago on PS4. It’s some weird rights issue. Also, Guitar Hero Live wasn’t released digitally because you HAD to buy the disc because that was the only way to get the required guitar peripheral.

    • Yeah it because of a rights issue but since I own a Switch I’ll just buy it digital from nintendo

    • i see… probably because ubisoft owning tetris copyright presently

  • Some corrections: Period: Cube – Shackles of Amadeus is also available at retail and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is also coming to PS Vita.

  • That 8 games i want across 3 gaming platforms.

    Dragon Quest 2, Little Nightmares & What remain of edith finch for Ps4
    Outlast 2, Outlast Trinity, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, Syberia 3 for XB1
    And Puyo Puyo Tetris on my brand new switch

    damn its a great time to be a gamer

    • You mean 7 games as Outlast 2 is a part of Outlast Trinity. ;) . But that’s awesome you have the time and energy to spread it out between 3 systems though bro. I have an PSPRO, Vita and a PSVR and barely have time for those. :0
      That’s a lot of games in the DROP! Woot woot.
      Definitely a great time to be a gamer, so many games and so little time. This gen my backlog is insane… :)

  • I know Portal Knights isn’t out until 5/2 but the demo is now on the PS Store! It’s really fun and I highly recommend it. Also, it has split-screen COOP!! However split-screen COOP doesn’t work in the demo. The game is seriously a better more charming graphic Minecraft with RPG elements, lock-on and bosses. Day one buy for my son and I!

    • Crap, Portal Knights doesn’t come out until 5/23. Supposedly COOP does work in the demo however I haven’t figured it out yet.

    • Right in the upper right hand corner it says Options to add local player haha! My bad, it’s there and COOP is great!

    • Buy Dragon Quest Builders, it and Portal Knights are very similar

  • WOW! Syberia 3!! Day one buy!

    • I really liked the first Syberia. The second was okay. The third one has gotten pretty mediocre reviews so far. Make sure you look into this since unlike Steam you can’t refund.

      Major beefs are so-so graphics, animations worse than MEA, weak voice-acting, and a forgettable story. I refunded the Steam version after an hour with it. It’s just not worth the price of admission. I wish that had not been the case….

      For modern adventure gaming, Silence is good although it’s way too short for the asking price….

  • Loved the demo for Outlast 2 so can’t wait to get to buy that, Got what remains of Edith Finch on Pre-order, Really want Dragon quest heroes 2 because i loved the first, also Shovel Knights 2nd free add on Specter of torment is finally coming to PS4 can’t wait to re-download Shovel Knight onto my console and play it.

  • I wish these games could each have a PSN store page up by the time this post comes out. Even if there’s nothing there except a “coming in 6 days” marker. I know for sure there are some small games I’ve lost track of because they had no store page to put on my wishlist.

  • I’ll be picking up Puyo Puyo Tetris. I love both Puyo Puyo and Tetris so this is a great game! (I think I’d have a heart attack if Tetris Attack was thrown in as well.)

  • Zombeer seems interesting..

  • Is Crossout going to scratch my years-old Auto Assault itch?

  • Some of these look like they might be interesting, but to be honest, i’ll likely never know. Why arent there links to gameplay videos or previews or even the store page? This doesn’t seem like it would be a difficult feature to add, but i may be wrong.

  • Period:Shackles of Amadeus Does have a physical release. You can Preorder it on amazon right now for release day delivery.

  • Zombeer on PS4….. Didn’t see that coming…

  • I didn’t know Crossout was coming to console. Looks like next week is gonna be a good one for me.

  • I am stoked for River City Melee: Battle Royale Special. If you get this game, friend me! :)

  • Pretty interesting games. I’ve always been curious about Sniper Ghost Warrior and had no idea Outlast 2 was coming out but I might have to check it out. I have $60 total in psn gift cards and have been having a severe itch for BF1 now (but I just can’t justify spending $60 on it at this point and desperately want it to go on sale). Persona 5 looks amazing too and so does the Kingdom Hearts collection. Rime actually looks pretty cool but I’ve had my fill with Breath of The Wild so idk…I’m torn on what to get…I wanna make this $60 count.

  • Aside from the Vita Releases and River City, the rest is meh. And why the hell is Hamster Corp. giving us the crappy Neo Geo Games when the Switch got Samurai Shodown 4 and KOF 98, as well as Xbox One getting Fatal Fury 2? Anyone wanna answer that?

  • When will the store update for outlast 2?

  • Crossout is crossed out.

  • So no new ps now games and when are ps4 games comming to ps now. I just signed up for a one month subscription wondering when new ps now games will be in.

  • *Expects a golden week sale*

    *Gets a Tom Clancy sale*
    *Next week sale is probably Starwars because of May the 4th*

    SIEA just broke a three year old tradition

    2014 April 28
    2015 April 28
    2016 April 26
    2017 April ??

    I haven’t receive a playstation newsletter since september 2016, playstation live chat is not working either

    Thanks SIEA, my wallet remains untouched one more time, nothing for me this week.

  • Any idea why Deathstate is on the US store, but can’t be found or purchased on the Canadian store? That was at the top of my list this week, so it’s super disappointing to see it missing on the Canadian store.

    • happening all time this year with indie,

      Flying Bunny – Wonder Boy return – Deadstate ..

      Some indie seem to not care about canadian market since they have an insertion fee for canada

  • Got Dragon Quest Heroes II and Puyo Puyo Tetris. Both are pretty enjoyable.

  • Outlast 2 on the PS Store is $39.99 Canadian, while it’s $32.99 Canadian on Steam, and $29.99 Canadian on Xbox One. I want Sony to explain why there’s a $10 difference for the same exact game on 2 different platforms.

  • Where is Syndrome for ps4 VR? Everything I have read says April 28th. Where is it?!
