You can tell there’s no proper games coming out this week when the top 5 is this, sparse.

It’s 3 play on your mobile phone gimmick games and an overpriced VR minigame and something. I’m not sure there is even one that i’d bother with for free.

I wouldn’t exactly call any of those “big releases”.


To be fair, there isn’t really much to replace it…

They could have just called ’em “small releases”!?

What happened to the Stranger Things VR experience? Any new release date?


I look up since look on gamespot site since news post on November 7 . Since it said got no reasle date only said coming soon . Sorry couldn’t help.

Fishing in FFXV was very booooored and annoying.

FFXV in general is very boring and annoying.


And that game waste of money since just fishing game .

Game in general was very good. 2 things was bad game has not russian dubbing and isnt’t 4k

I miss Buzz! so much. Looks like Knowledge is Power could be fun if it only got two things. Local language support and a lot of different topics to choose from. If it will have it, you’ll have one buyer.

Yea local language support is nice :) .. we used to play Buzz dutch version so much during xmas/new years. But i fear this will be english only.


hmm storepage says :

Ondertitels (subtitles)

so will it be after all ?

On PSN store says that Hidden Agenda will be released at 7 March 2018, which one is correct?


Amazon UK also says 22nd November 2017, so I think the date here is the correct one.

If this was the list of free games with plus, I still wouldn’t be impressed.

MiseryPrincess 21 November, 2017 @ 08:38

Just wait a few months and it probably will be…

Cool, play link. Of course my kids don’t have phones… But they have PS Vita’s so they’ll be able to play along aswell right? Right?

If only

Playstation 4 owner need to

stop doing playlink games and spend money on great indies games or AAA Games . Nothing for me this week.

PlayStation 4 owner need to

keep as much diversity in games as possible. Play link has potential, just try jackbox

Weak week. Oh, Project Cars 2 demo! I’ll wait for A Hat in Time.

But for how long. Gears for breakfast never respond over on their twitter feed unless you are talking about the already released PC Version. They aren’t filling me with confidence at all.


Don’t know. But I saw the trophy list of the game. 1 person is already playing it.

Carnivius_Prime 20 November, 2017 @ 18:49

AH nothing for me. Maybe Mutation Nation. And maaybe Elevator Action though I really wish it was the much later sequel Elevator Action Returns which is awesome and still looks good to this day. I need to save anyways. Christmas is coming and folk are expecting gifts for some reason


Finally at long last with KOF 97 Which should have been released 2 weeks ago delaying the release of fighting History & Soccer brawl which should have been released.

I love these Arcade Archive i own all 88 titles with a little bit of importing wi tTop Hunter (SNK) on the way & Irem now signed up to the series Zippy racer & R-tyoes being the first 2 titles its getting better & better

Carnivius_Prime 20 November, 2017 @ 18:52

By the way whatever happened to that supposed Nex Machina demo that was actually listed in one of these blog store updates months ago? Housemarque have now said they’re not gonna make those sorts of arcade games anymore due to disappointing sales. Well some folk like me were waiting for this supposed demo to find if I was to pay £16 on a game that might be a lil too overwhelming for me (it does have a whole lot going on).

looking at DWVR, RecRoom and Final Fantasy Fishing makes me even more happy we finally got a real game with Skyrim VR.

Hopefully its success will convince bethsoft to give us Fallout New Vegas next and other devs to follow the lead and release older games in VR. imagine Deus Ex Human Revolution !!

MiseryPrincess 21 November, 2017 @ 08:32

Wasn’t that series put on permanent hiatus for doing terribly?


might have, I don’t know. mankind divided was pretty bad gameplay wise imho. the controls were all over the place and annoyingly long loading times punished every failed stealth attempt. that was the reason I just stopped playing.

But visiting the world in VR would be really cool. Raw Data on PSVR has this nice loft with a view over a future tokyo skyline and it make me think the setting of deus ex would look great.

I had a chance to try Hidden Agenda and Knowledge Is Power early and they are a lot of fun. I tried KIP with 2 players and again with 5 players and had a great time with it, although it moves between questions a little slowly. Hidden Agenda is really impressive, although I had it crash after one of the 5 players dropped out because his phone died, then we couldn’t get the game to work again on that save file without it crashing.

That is probably the biggest downside of these games, they can potentially chew through your smartphone battery so if you want to play them for an extended period of time everyone needs a phone charger close at hand. Having said that I still had a lot of fun with them.


When’s Valhalla out for Vita?Came out couple weeks ago in US.


Is the payday 2 DLC confirmed for coming out this week because it was on last week’s blog as well to release on the 17th of November.

What’s the master plan DLC for payday? I thought they had given out all the DLC already?


Why can’t I purchase the horus pack for assassin’s creed origins? It just says it’s because I already own the season pass this happend with mine craft not long ago please fix this so I can purchase it

I already own the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed Origins yet when I try to download the Horus Pack through the Playstation Store on PS4 console , all that comes up is a message saying “sorry, this item is not availible to for purchase at this time.” I have also tried through the Playstation Store website but a different message saying “You are not able to purchase this product for the following reason(s): You already own Assassin’s Creed Origins – Season Pass”
