Before we start this week’s ‘Heads-Up’ I have an announcement to make, this will be the last time I will write for the PSN Store weekly blog post… However, this leads on to some great news because I am delighted to announce that, as of today, I will be passing on the mighty blog keyboard to the newest member of the PlayStation Store team, Jawad Ashraf. I will still be assisting him with comments but Jawad will have more time dedicated to try and get the answers you want. Jawad, over to you!"

Not a single Reistance? Fuck this article.

Starhawk over Warhawk?...... Dude, NO ONE should listen to you.

Odd choices for "best" more like you settled as these being the "best" that available to you at the time, cause a lot of these blow or were average to poor performers that ended up in bargain bin.

Missing too many great sci-fi titles here. The Void, The Resistance Series, Killzone 2 and 3, Enslaved, man.. there were so many, this is redicu-list.

FreeckyCake72d ago

Nobody should listen to you either with that attitude.

I agree that Starhawk shouldn't be above Warhawk, however I must say that Starhawk multiplayer was incredible for its time! Many people wrote it off bc the single player was quite terrible, bc it was basically 1 huge tutorial for the multiplayer. But I can tell you never spent any significant amount of time in MP. It was doing incredibly tense base building w air, foot and land vehicle (and mech!) combat long before Fortnite was ever a thing.

I bet it would have been much better received if it had just ditched the story mode all together. So many people like yourself completely wrote it off based on reviews by reviewers that let the criticism of single player weigh heavily on their scores. I bet you didn't even play it.

The riddick games are some of the best stealth titles ever, highly underrated

YourMommySpoils72d ago

What games? All recall plating was Escape from Butcher Bay.

Friendlygamer72d ago (Edited 72d ago )

There's also the less acclaimed 'assault on dark Athena'

( also, not saying this to you specifically but there's both resistance and killzone games on the list, it's amazing how even something so simple and innocent as a game list can be turned into misinformed vitriol here lol )

Glad to see Resonance of Fate. Enslaved was pretty good too. I’m sure there are others nobody has listed but I’m too tired to try and think of anything

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD: PS 5 Gameplay

Garethvk:

Here is a look at the new HD version of the game played on a PS5. I am not a fan of the camera system which makes viewing in third person harder than it should be but the game looks great otherwise.

Yi-Long861d ago

I liked the game back when it was released, especially the squirrel-gun of course (were they squirrels? Not sure) and the other weapons, and some fun enemies. A genuinely original game, but I doubt I’ll bother with the remaster. When you look at the textures they really feel low-res and outdated.

Garethvk861d ago

The camera was horrible 3rd person.

JL2930861d ago

Tried it on the Vita back in the day. Sucks.

Garethvk861d ago

Some are really good. This is a remaster and aside from the camera issues, its ok.

NecrumOddBoy860d ago

Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee and Exoddus on PS1/PC are 10/10 phenomenal. Munch’s Oddysee is a 7, Stranger is a 6, New and Tasty is also a 6, and SoulStorm is sadly a 3. I’m a massive Oddworld fan and I have been incredibly disappointed with the series after the original two titles.

Continue the Oddworld saga as Stranger's Wrath HD shoots onto Xbox and PlayStation

Neil writes: "For many the mere mention of an Oddworld game ushers up memories of Abe and Munch, even more so after the recent release of the brilliant Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition. But there's more to this universe and some seventeen years ago Stranger rocked up to deliver his wrath to the OG Xbox. It's fair to say it didn't go down as well as expected. Now though he's back, as Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD hits Xbox and PlayStation."

Excellent game. It was a bad decision not to launch on PlayStation initially.

MadLad862d ago

I have it on PC, but highly recommend those with a Playstation or Xbox to give this one a go. Great game.

SurgicalMenace862d ago

Again, the game's been out since PS2; it's about time for a sequel.

Mr_Luke862d ago

Ok, good game, i finished it on og Xbox, PSVita and PS3. But... enough, wasn't it better if they made a part 2 or something?

Phlacky862d ago (Edited 862d ago )

Shame, PS5 and XBSX could have easily ran this at 120fps. Even if they targeted a lower resolution like 1440p or 1800p still would have been worth it.

MadLad861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

I can run this thing 1440p 60fps on a rig I have with a now ancient 680 in it. The Series S should be able to do 4k 60, 1440 120 with no issue.
