Okay, what stands out on this weekend's PSN flash sale..?
Still plucking away on the Hype List - but that's no excuse to let a day go without a post, so let's take a peeksie at the sale on PSN this weekend... it's an all indie, all the time smorgasbord with some fantastic prices. Top picks?
Guacamelee (PS3/Vita cross-buy) for three bucks? That's one of the best platformer/brawlers of the past few years for the price of a (cheaper) Starbucks coffee. Definitely get Guacamelee if you haven't already played (and loved) it.
Resogun is absolutely incredible, it's cross-buy, which means you can get the game for PS4, PS3 and Vita for just three bucks. Definitely snag that, if you haven't.
Also of note:
Road Not Taken (PS4) is a gorgeously-presented, insanely deep survival/puzzler/Roguelike from indie studio Spry Fox. I feel like it would do better on my Vita than my PS4, but for four fifty you can afford to be wrong.
Shadow Warrior (PS4) is a rather classic-feeling, arcadey FPS with some nicely crude humor. I'll admit, I feel a bit fleeced that I paid forty bucks for a disc copy, but I'd encourage you to check it out for six.
Oh, and I'm actually pretty tempted by the PS4 version of Costume Quest 2 for three bucks. A Double Fine-produced adorable RPG? That's just good value.
Limbo (PS3/Vita cross-buy) for three bucks. A great price for a short, excellent, play-it-once game.
Fez for three dollars? I didn't fall in love with it, but it's one of the most critically-acclaimed indies of the past ten years - you might want to check it out.
Finally, I would absolutely encourage you to grab Olli Olli, At two ninety-nine, you can afford to find out it's not your cup of tea - and if it is your cup of tea, you're gonna' love it.
