Ahoy there, one and all. Fred here with your weekly glance over the shoulder at the week that was. I think ‘quality not quantity’ is an accurate summation of PS Blog’s output over the last seven days. While it was certainly quieter than usual, there was a fistful of very pleasing announcements. My highlights? A new behind-the-scenes video for the thoroughly charming Diggs Nightcrawler, a look at Watch_Dogs on PS4, and a first glimpse at the brilliantly bonkers Men’s Room Mayhem on PS Vita.
Also, a quick reminder to check out our limited-time flash sale on brilliant PSN adventure The Unfinished Swan. It’s a steal at 50% off.
