Yes. I DID miss a couple of weeks, but it was all due to work and the vacation that followed right after. Don’t worry, I won’t try to make a post with everything that was released. I’ll just focus on this week, and you’ll act as if I actually posted all the others and you didn’t miss anything. All good? Great!
We get one retail release, three PSN games, and two games from the PS2 Classics series… and that is it. Well, I lied. One of the PSN games is a digital release of a formerly retail only game. BUT the PS2 Classics series makes a big comeback with not one but TWO releases for you to enjoy, so that makes up for it, right? Oh, almost forgot to mention. One of the PS2 Classics is GTA 3.
Full list of releases, as soon as you click!
When the store updates tomorrow, PS+ subscribers will be able to purchase The Expendables 2 at a 20% discount, as well as have it count towards the PSN Play promo. What else is there for the soon to arrive month of August? Well, you’ll get not one but TWO free episodes from Telltale’s awesome The Walking Dead series! You will also get a 20% discount on Sound Shapes, so be sure to have your account ready for these purchases. There will be another update in a week to let us know of the rest of the PS+ content for August. Also, don’t forget to download all the games currently available in the Instant Collection, or else you might miss out on some of them when the update hits on August 7th.
Well here we are a little late this week, we had some scheduling issues, but it’s a good one! We give away a code for a free month of PlayStation Plus so be sure to listen out for that. I’ll be giving away the rest of the codes next week on the podcast as well as other methods which I will announce. In the mean time pay close attention to PS3Blog.net’s Facebook page for more code giveaways from Oly!
WARNING: At 52 minutes into the podcast we go into a 10 minute discussion about The Dark Knight Rises that is spoiler heavy, so if you haven’t seen the film yet stop the podcast there. I give you a heads up when it’s about to happen so just pull the plug. The secret word as well as the giveaway are before this segment of the podcast.
I played Dishonored at E3, and found it to be quite fun. One of the things they pointed out to me was that there are many different methods to face any situation. This video is a great example of that.
In this video, Corvo is detected by the guards at the Boyle Mansion and must find a way to escape. The video showcases three possible routes using Blink, Bend Time and Possession – three of the many supernatural abilities you’ll gain access to as you play through the game.
