PlayStation Store Update: 20/08/14 – CounterSpy, The Last Tinker & Garden Warfare

If there’s one word that could be used to describe this week’s store update, it’d be ‘colourful’. Just take The Last Tinker, for example, where even its subtitle is “City of Colors”, as it brings vibrant greens, blues and reds and blends them all together in a gorgeous looking 3D platformer. It’s out on PS4 for £18.99/€19.99, or £14.24/€14.99 if you have PS+.

The overall palette in CounterSpy might be a little more subdued, but it’s no less stylish and is more than capable of giving your Share button a bit of a workout. This 60s themed Cold War espionage game blends 2.5D gameplay and graphics with some clever shooting mechanics, as you try to avert the end of the world, or something. We’ll have a video up around 4PM, but it’s out on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita today with cross-buy for £9.99/€12.99, or with a 20% PS+ discount.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare also brings a vibrant palette of cartoonish fighting to the PS4 and PS3, landing on Friday for £34.99/€39.99 and £19.99/€29.99 respectively, while Oddworld gets some DLC with Alf’s Escape Mission, free for PS+ subscribers if they buy New ‘n’ Tasty before September or £2.99/3.59.

Rounding out the colours is Crimsonland, though this game seems to stick to muddy reds and browns. While Tuffcub was less than enamoured with it, if you’re looking for a top down, twin stick shooter, it’s on PS4 and PS Vita for £9.99/€12.99. Then there’s Tales of Xillia 2 for £44.99/€54.99 on PS3, Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition comes in at £29.99/€39.99 on PS3 and a somewhat less appealing £59.99/€69.99 on PS4, while Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment hits the PS Vita for £32.99/€39.99.

  1. Probably CounterSpy for me. Didn’t think it was cross-buy over all three platforms as I saw there was a separate trophy list for PS4 and PS3/Vita, so that’s good. Guess that means you can double-up on the trophy list too then for extra silverware.

    Will also check out the TLOU scoped weapons bundle, might make my next journey a bit more interesting, although I don’t tend to use scoped weapons.

    Cancelled my PvZ:GW pre-order sadly, I just have too much to play. :(

  2. Was considering The Last Tinker but it’s just a bit too pricy. Considering it’s only $20 (or 15 with plus) it should’ve been nearer the 15 quid mark (or 11 with plus). I know it’s only a few quid extra but they seriously need to look at their pricing policy.
    I’ll just be content with the new Trials dlc.

  3. £25 sounds very expensive for the ‘Ultimate headgear pack’ for TLOU. What’s the pack contain?

    • Unless is comes with a free headset, that price is pretty mental.

    • Yes ,I also think that it sounds very expensive. I got an hdmi converter for my PS4 from http://www.hdgenius.com . That is just very cheap.

    • I too expensive feel it is. I added inches onto my hdmi converter, to please the ladies, from http://www.hdjustaboveaverage.com. It wasn’t cheap, but the series of painful procedures were worth it.

  4. That PvZ game looks fun, but the difference in PS3/PS4 prices is silly. 75% more for the PS4 version? For a game that should probably only be a £10 or £15 downloadable title anyway?

    Maybe there’s something in that Rockstar sale to tempt me. Although I did pick up Dynasty Warriors 8 for the PS4 in the sale a couple of weeks ago, so that might just keep me going for about a billion years.

    • Agreed, PvZ is silly money. Not even slightly tempted. And not exactly a great way to endear yourself to customers after the timed exclusivity on Xbox.
      Two low blows in a row.

    • Just tried Garden Warfare co-op last night with Tef/Stefan L (TSA), AG2297 (TSA) and another friend. It was a bit of fun but I don’t feel any desire to return to it to be honest. The actual multiplayer element leaves me cold so I was only in there for the co-op part which feels very small in comparison.

      (It was part of Origin’s ‘Free Time’ on the PC so we have a 72 hour period to enjoy it for zero cost)

      Saying that, it was a stunning looking title. Very pretty with it all on Ultra settings.

  5. Just grabbed the Abe DLC, nothing else interests me this week. Well, some stuff does like PvZ, but way too expensive.

  6. Crimsonland is a tenner?? Jebus.

  7. Just SAO for me, can’t wait!

  8. aww, still no Minecraft. :(

    • The devs tweeted that it failed Sony certification due to a small no. of issues, (probably a logo in the wrong place rather than a game bug) but that means it will be delayed.
      Anyway don’t be in any rush .. one you start playing it there’s no getting out! ;)

  9. Manhunt, Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories (if it can actually be found on the store. Seems to disappear down a glitchy black hole usually.)

  10. £4 for Max Payne 3 is an absolute bloody bargain. If I didn’t already have it, I would now! Otherwise just the Abe DLC for me this week
