PlayStation Store Update: 03/12/14 – Game Of Thrones, The Crew & Teslagrad

Telltale Games have come out swinging, with a one-two punch of character driven point & click adventuring. Both Tales from the Borderlands (admittedly a week behind the US) and Game of Thrones get their first episodes and season passes released today for PS4 and PS3, and from what I’ve heard, both are pretty good.

Joining them on PS4 is the last big release out of Ubisoft this year, as The Crew arrived on the console yesterday. If you hadn’t been able to play this during the handful of beta periods that it had, then my advice would be to wait for reviews to start hitting you favourite sites, because it feels like this could be one with a rather mixed reaction.

There’s also Secret Ponchos on PS4, part of this month’s PS+ Instant Game Collection, the quite lovely Metroidvania-styled Teslagrad lands on PS3 and PS Vita – which I reviewed almost a year ago on PC – and plenty of other additions which I’ll leave to the full list below, which comes courtesy of the EU PlayStation Blog.

Before you scroll further, don’t forget that there’s the December PS+ update, the second of the 12 Days of Christmas sale as well as a celebratory 20th anniversary sale since the first PlayStation arrived on the scene back in 1994.

  1. Well I’m currently trying to set some downloads from work, but for some reason I can’t seem to connect through to my PS4. I’m assuming it’s probably got something to do with the firmware update.

    • Now, if the PS4 had some sort of feature where it could perform downloads and installs in the background whilst in standby…

      • Or even better, whilst in Rest Mode.

      • Sorry, that’s me living in the past. It’s now known as ‘Rest Mode’. Either way, neither mode ever downloaded updates whilst at rest/standby.

  2. Guys, I think you’ve made a mistake with the price for The Crew, you’ve listed it as £59.99.

    • So… I’m going to blame the blog, since I just copied and pasted. Is £54.99 better, though?

      • I’m sure that £54.99 is incorrect as well (I’m being facetious).

  3. This week, I shall be getting Costume Quest 2 for the PS4.

    Oh. Wait. It’s still bloody missing.

    PS+ time then. I’d get that Tales from the Borderlands thing, but (a) it’s more expensive on the PS4 (which doesn’t seem to be the case in the US, or apparently XBox land) and (b) we know how those episodic games turn out with their release dates.

  4. Just the Minecraft Skyrim mashup and Steampunk packs for me this week.

  5. Only the plus stuff for me cos it’s too close to xmas and i’m still totally absorbed by Inquisition anyway.

  6. Why is the PS4 version of Game of Thrones and Borderlands more expensive than the PS 3 version? I don’t believe there is a significant difference between the two.

  7. With the PS+ games today, I’ve just got one question…

    Deadly Premonition?? What?? Why?? How??

    OK, that’s several questions. After just an hour of playing, I’m trying to work out if it’s just an enormous steaming pile of crap, or a work of pure genius. The graphics hurt my brain. The voice “acting” seems to have involved getting anyone they could find to try and read some dialogue. The gameplay is barely the right side of “broken”. Dying enemies saying the same thing every single time has gone beyond annoying and is now just hillarious. And there were comedy squirrels.

    All in the first hour.

    So what the hell am I playing? WHY am I playing it? And how did it ever get released??

    I shall award it zero points in every possible category and somehow make that add up to 10/10. Because reasons.

    • You’ve got the idea of what the game is all about then!

      Congratulations, you’ve answered your own questions. A celebratory cake is on its way via drone delivery.

      • You’d better be serious about the cake. Because if you’re not…

    • That’s exactly how the reviews of the original went- some game it ten, some 1. It’s a very decisive game.

      • I’d give it both 10/10 and 0/10. At the same time. It’s a horrible broken mess of a game. And strangely compelling.

        I’ve seen people comparing it to Twin Peaks. Which was kind of shit. But not on the level of awfulness on display in Deadly Premonition. Which then instantly makes it better than Twin Peaks.

        Rather than score things on a simple scale out of 10, I’m now going to use a 3 dimensional scale, based on how good something is, how entertaining it all is despite any tendency towards being shit, and if you’d do it all again.

        In this case, I’m giving it 0-10-0. Some films are brilliant but hard to watch and so would score 10-10-0 on the Cube of Judgement. Very few things are ever in the 10-10-10 corner.

  8. So has anyone else got issues with Injustice?

    I was playing it last night and it said I was playing GOT that I also downloaded yesterday, then every time I got a trophy in Injustice I actually got a GOT trophy – Yes I am one of the few people that have a Gold trophy for completing episode 6 already!

    Bit weird.

    • I was playing Injustice and got trophies for… Injustice.

      But it looks like there’s some sort of problem with trophies. Most mentions of the problem involve the new PS+ games and Game of Thrones, but that’s probably to be expected (people playing games they downloaded yesterday). Any of the games can give you trophies in different games. Except it’s not happened to me.

      New PS4 firmware coming very soon then, I expect.

      Injustice seems to have an issue on the PS4 version where unlocking a single extra costume gives you the trophy for unlocking all the costumes. But I’d quite like it if random games were to start giving me trophies for Injustice, since some of those are quite hard.
