Minimur, WTH Happened This Week? More inFamous Screenshots& Gameplay, South Park: The Stick Of Truth Intro, And March’s PS Plus Games! (Rumour)

Hey guys we’ve got a couple of gameplay videos for you lot today, along with the rumoured news about next months ps plus content for the EU region.

Let’s have a look!

PS Vita news:

Release Date:

God Of War HD Collection – 8th May

Sly Cooper HD Collection – 16th April

Borderlands 2 – Spring (Amazon have it as May 31)


No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either! – Free to play ‘coming soon’


A lucky Playstation now beta tester has tested how long it has taken him to launch each game, and here are his findings:

  • Dead or Alive 5: 51.10
  • Disgaea 4: 47.12
  • Papo & Yo: 43.10
  • Killzone 3: 53.49
  • Darksiders II: 50.53
  • MX vs. ATV: Alive: 48.15
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: 50.89
  • Shatter: 39.77
  • Shadow of the Colossus: 53.98
  • Puppeteer: 44.16
He also provided his internet connection details (tested through speedtest), being as it would impact loading times.
  • Ping: 17ms
  • Download speed: 7.65 Mbps
  • Upload speed: 1.88 Mbps#

That seems pretty good to be fair, considering it’s in beta phase. I’m surprised it’s still in beta, how long is it going on for?


Now let’s get on to the PS Plus rumours. This is the second time it’s happened now, and it was spot on last time. So let’s hope this one is!


Dead Nation


Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons

Tomb Raider

PS Vita: 

Smart As

Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD

I’m pretty happy with that, even though I already own Tomb Raider. I enjoyed the Smart As demo but never got round to purchasing it so I’ll definitely give that a go if the rumours are true.

I’m pretty surprised they’re bringing Tomb Raider to PS Plus, being as Square Enix have just launched the definitive edition for the PS4, and would obviously try to push the sales of the game as much as possible. In any case, I’m sure many people who haven’t played it and didn’t want to pay £50/$60 for an HD remake will be pleased!


Here’s another gameplay video for you lot now, it’s South Park: The Stick Of Truth. The first 13 minutes of it, the game looks pretty funny and I’m going to be getting it from PSN, for convenience.

It was also reported this week that the game has finally gone gold, after being years in development.

Isn’t it nice hearing games are coming out soon that have been in development hell!

In an interview with with Videogamer, Final Fantasy XV is Series Producer Yoshinori Kitase gave us a few more details on his upcoming game:

We can’t give too much information, but certainly looking at Final Fantasy XV, it’s not as if it’s in competition with Kingdom Hearts 3 for resources or anything like that. It’s quite far into development now, and it is being given a very high priority within the company itself, but that doesn’t mean Kingdom Hearts isn’t.

Along other things in the interview, he also mentioned about how the series might improve due to next-gen consoles capabilities:

We are quite aware of [PS4 & Xbox One's] capabilities and certainly one thing that’s going to come up is having battles with a lot more participants involved, having a lot more characters, a lot more things happening, that’s one of the things that the new hardware does really well, so to maybe make a battle system for a Final Fantasy game or a future game that fits with that, I think it would be quite good to have more characters for the player to control and more participants in the battle.

Interesting, you mean like in Final Fantasy 1 where you could battle for FOUR characters?!?


The brilliant indie game, with roughly the same popularity as DayZ now, Rust, may be coming to next gen consoles! In an update by the developer Gary Newman (Yes, the Gary Newman from Gary’s Mod, it’s his game) said this:


So with Rust, we are planning to port it to consoles. We haven’t started that process yet. We’re not planning anything until we’ve tried to get it running on one of the consoles and know what problems we’re going to face. It’s important to emphasise here that we’re porting TO consoles. We’re not making a dumbed down console version and then porting it back to the PC. So might happen, might not. Depends on a bunch of stuff. Either way neither the PS4 or XBone have any kind of early access program as far as I know, so it will be a while away.

In response to lack of early access, Adam Boyes PS Devloper Relations said this:


After the lengthy stretch of time where we heard no information about The Evil Within, they’ve finally outed the most important bits, the release date, and the box art.

If you fancy this game, it’ll be in your hands by August 26 for the North American’s and August 29 in Europeans.

Here’s the ‘interesting’ box art:


There were rumours surrounding TurtleRock’s new game, Evolve, and they’ve finally come clear about how it works, gameplay and mechanics, like their previous game, they’ve decided to stick with 4 player co-op. You play one of four roles, and will fight against a monster… but there’s a twist…. The monster you want to hunt is actually a player too.

Have a look at the developer interview to understand it better:


Someone say inFamous: Second Son?


Why yes I did, now why could that possibly be?….. GAMEPLAY


What else could possibly accompany this game, besides some pictures?

A developer interview!

here ya’ go:

Weekly blog round-up


Reading the hardware mods were pretty interesting, and I must admit, the ‘play&peace’ advert was awesome!

Reddit Time!

This I found in the funny category, and was captioned:

      Monster Hunter in a nutshell


  2. RP’s avatar

    Four characters on screen. Bah. Dragon Force for Saturn has battles with 202 units on screen simultaneously. Two hundred and two. That’s two commanders, one on each side; and up to two hundred soldiers, one hundred for each commander.


  3. Hazer7’s avatar

    There should’ve been a hands-on video with PSnow section.

    BTW I got 70


    1. Hazer7’s avatar

      Hint=Use the pause button


  4. mma jedi’s avatar

    So, were those PS3 titles that beta played on Vita? Think the Vita will be able to play Ps2 games with Playstation Now also? Starting to think it’s gonna be badass for Vita only players like me…also you’ll be able to download & cloud play, yes?


  5. joshua’s avatar

    i only had a score of 40.
    and wow 4 characyers on screen you can play 2 to 3 people on a damned graphing calculator game by now ffs… advanced my ass…


  6. Ricky D’s avatar

    Those times listed for the Playstation Now beta tester are just plain retarded. Time isn’t measured that way. It’s not measured in a base 10 system like with money. Here’s what would make more sense with the standard of minutes:seconds like the entire world uses

    Dead or Alive 5: 51.10 = 51:06
    Disgaea 4: 47.12 = 47:07
    Papo & Yo: 43.10 = 43:17
    Killzone 3: 53.49 = 53:30
    Darksiders II: 50.53 = 50:32
    MX vs. ATV: Alive: 48.15 = 48:09
    Ninja Gaiden 3: 50.89 = 50:54
    Shatter: 39.77 = 39:46
    Shadow of the Colossus: 53.98 = 54:00
    Puppeteer: 44.16 = 44:10

    Seriously, can we stop dumbing everything down or trying to give better looking results by fudging the numbers? Does the 39.77 they have listed for Shatter really look that much different than the 39 minutes 46 seconds that it actually is?


    1. soulrazor’s avatar

      what makes you think it is minutes and seconds and not seconds and mili seconds (the thing that makes sense with that representation)

      from another source :As reported by DualShockers, the loading time for each PlayStation Now game clocks in at just under a minute.

      The exact time for each of the PlayStation Now beta games are as follows:


      1. Ricky D’s avatar

        It could be nanoseconds for all it matters – time is not measured that way. It’s just a marketing ploy to make the times seem better than what they are


  7. Ricky D’s avatar

    meh, goofed the time on Papa & Yo – shoulda been 43:06


  8. BahamutBBob’s avatar

    Minimur, how do you do an HD remake of an already HD game like Tomb Raider? Seriously…


  9. Draven’s avatar

    You’re aware that the EU PSN IGC is not the same as other regions, right?

    You’re aware that isn’t just a European website, right?

    Sloppy work this time. Very sloppy. Focus, before you post. Remember that you’re not only writing for a European audience.


    1. Minimur12’s avatar

      I did make it clear that it’s the European only content, but I posted this because it is a rumour which has been leaked, not the official announcement. If the US lineup was leaked, I would’ve posted that, if the Chinese lineup was leaked, I would’ve posted that as well, but japanese news like that obviously doesn’t always make it over to US, if you have a website that posts japan’s gaming news, besides the shambolic Kotaku, I’d be VERY grateful!

      but anyway, I do know it’s not just an EU website, I’m in UK, Wololo lives in Japan, people form all over the world thanks to google auto-translate! :D

      going foward, if you can suggest anything to make my weekly update seem more broad (in the sense involving every region) please let me know so I can do it :)

      I’m sorry if you thought it was a bit sloppy and unfocused.
