EU PS Store Update 11/08/15: Gauntlet, Everybody's Gone To The Rapture, And Goat Simulator

The Prototypes arrive

Well hello there, once again Teflon is off on a jolly so for the second time in as many weeks I get to the host the store update post. Let’s hope it’s a bit better than last week’s when over half the games on the store were not available on Tuesday, the day of the store update.

PlayStation 4 games first and Green Elf needs food! It’s the return of a classic arcade game in the shape of Gauntlet: Slayer Edition, a spruced up version of the PC game. There is a considerable list of new features and improvements, you can find more details here, and the game will cost £15.99/€19.99 when it launches… tomorrow.

Brilliant.

Also on PlayStation 4, and out today – huzzah! – is Commander Cherry’s Puzzled Journey, which requires a PlayStation Camera and a flexible body, as you must take pictures of yourself to create the platforms for the game.

The mysterious Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture also hits the store with a 20% PS+ discount, and joining it is funky puzzle action game TorqueL, and Kung Fury: Street Rage. Goat Simulator lands on Wednesday, as does PrototypePrototype 2Knock-Knock, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.  That’s a packed week for PlayStation 4 owners and there’s even a demo of PES 2016 to play.

Moving on the PlayStation 3 and we start with the PES 2016 demo and we end with it as well. Slim pickings for PS Vita with just TorqueL on the store.

    I have already grabbed Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, and Tales from the Borderlands in the sale (which I thought was a steal at £7.99).

    I have a bit of spare cash and a moderate interest in Gone to the Rapture. I also have fond nostalgia for Gauntlet. I think I might actually buy something!!!!!

    Ooo Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Didn’t realise it was out this week.

    I recently completed The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and I’m not sure what I really made of it. It was a great looking game but not really knowing anything about it, I found myself wondering around an empty world unsure what I was supposed to do. I had to check a guide eventually to get myself on the right track and I did start to enjoy it but it was an odd experience overall. Not sure if it was worth the money if I’m being honest but I am glad I played it.

    The reason I say that is because Rapture and Vanishing both look pretty similar from what I’ve seen. Has anyone played both games and know if they are?

      I did a Let’s Play of that. Go to 56:00 minutes and you can hear me piecing things together. Found the ending utterly fascinating. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O86eMj4xIzs

      EGttR is getting good reviews too. Might be less cryptic than Ethan Carter. Will have to find out. :D

        Can’t say I’m too far into EGTTR yet, but so far the gameplay does indeed appear to be less cryptic than TVOEC. Whereas that game didn’t hold your hand at all, EGTTR seems to guide you a little more (although there’s still plenty of opportunity for exploration).

        Cheers, I must have missed that somehow.

        I pretty much had the same thoughts as you did. As soon as the credits started rolling I googled the ending to see how others had interpreted the game and if I had overlooked anything.

        I think my main issue was not really knowing what the game was about or what I was supposed to be doing. I completely missed the trap puzzle at the beginning and had to back track later on. Managed to uncover some clues around the legless body but wasn’t sure if I need to keep going to find more clues or keep searching the area. I did manage to solve the portal house puzzle but I started to feel like I was playing the game wrong and was worried I might miss something and not be able to go back.

        Once I found a guide online and saw how I was meant to play the game, I did enjoy it a lot more. I had no idea you had to line up the floating text to reveal a clue for a start. I think a few optional hints for the first puzzle would have helped solve a lot of problems. Or maybe I’m just a dumbass :D it was an interesting experience either way. Loved the astronaut puzzle (bizarre) and I’m still having nightmare’s about that thing in the mines!

        Think I’ll give Rapture a try and see how I get on. Thanks for the comments guys.

    I just picked up QUBE which i’m enjoying so far and will probably grab EG-to-the-R once i’m done with that.

    Do we have any idea of prices for any of these things? I clicked the links (ooh, risky!) for Goat Simulator & Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, but they go to blog posts about those games with no mention of pricing (not that I could see anyway).

    I also clicked the link for Kung Fury Street Rage, but as before (I believe it was listed last week?), it’s a broken link.

      I followed one of the broken links to the store, then searched for rapture. In euro it’s 19.99 or 15.99 with plus (so i’m guessing that’s around £15 or £12 with plus)

        EGttR is £12.79 with the plus discount.

        From a quick play, it looks absolutely gorgeous, with lots of little details that make it a completely believable world. It also sounds great too.

        Not sure what’s going on yet though. It seems a remarkably ordinary and polite apocalypse.

        You just want to wander around and explore everything, and the story kind of just happens to pop up while you’re doing that.

        And the end of the first chapter (if you want to call it that) is one of the nicest looking things I’ve seen in a game in a long time.
