  • I can understand not including Dreams Early Access in this because of the limited-ness of it, but that’s by far the most important thing coming out this year and I’m glad it’s soon!

    • I agree, but thankfully I already knew about that.

      I did learn about QuiVr here. Will look for more info on that.

  • God’s Trigger has a neat cover art. Hope the game itself is decent.

  • Didn’t know about Anniversary Collection Arcade Classics by Konami. Day 1 purchase for me!!!

    • Make sure to keep tabs on their other 2 collections coming soon too. They have a Castlevania one and a Contra one.

  • Strange how you don’t list Dreams Early Access here even if it is limited.

    I’ve already been playing Ghost Giant, Table of Tales and Heaven’s Vault and all three are worth your attention. I’ll also be picking up World War Z, Truberbrook, and QuiVR. Great week if you’re a PSVR owner.

  • I can’t find Dark Quest 2 on PSN is there a mistake?

  • My Time At Portia Retail isn’t releasing until May 14th. I think it’s due to a manufacturing delay.

  • I miss the games from back during ps 2 ,3. The ps4 games just dont live up. Tooooo much ridiculous childish nonsense, where’s the art?Yes there are some greats , but too few & very far between … Ah well

  • The SHOVELWARE is strong this week. Never thought I’d see the day where consoles got as much shovelware as PCs.

  • QuiVr is already available for purchase on North American store.

    Ghost Giant looks fantastic. PSVR is killing it over & over again.

  • Two Snooker games in the same week. Yes!!!

    • As much as I love billiards, we need an all-in-one billiards game; 3, 8, 9, 15.1, snooker, trick shot, etc. There was a top-down one on PC over 10 years ago that I truly loved, but I’m still looking for the best 3D one.

  • DREAMS EARLY ACCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYYAYAYAYAHOOOOOO

  • Where is Graveyard keeper?! Yesterday it was here…

    • I was looking for it here too. I saw it a few days ago. Anyone have any info?

    • I bought it, its really good! But maybe they took it down because it was released a little too early or something.. i dont know, hopefully they put it back up for everyone soon! Its fun!

  • Sony, please respect developers and consumers. Stop the censorship.

    • I cannot agree more.
      Neptunia RPG got the same censored treatment.
      That’ll be a Switch, if not, PC, buy for me.

  • Is anyone else having issues with PlayStation 4 controllers?? I have had 6 controllers in the last 6 months between me and my 2 daughters and everyone of them the analogs have gone out on them. Mainly the left analog! My dad and brother are having the same issues and we live in different counties. Are they just made cheaper then ps2 and ps3?? Our controllers are put up to where nothing can get to them, no drinks or food! I feel like something is going on with the manufacturer. The whole time I had the older consoles we never had to buy a replacement controller.
