PlayStation Store Update: The Future Legend of Tomb Raiding
There is plenty to love in this weeks PSN update, and if you are a Plus member you are in luck. PS+ members get Spec Ops: The Line added to the Instant Games Collection. I didn’t get to play the game until this year, but it is one of the best written games in a long time. Some of the mechanics are not the best in the world; but the story, dialog, and voice acting is top notch. Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics reboot of the venerable franchise, is available for download and has added bonuses over it’s retail counterpart. PlayStation owners finally get the amazing Bit Trip Presents: Runner2 – Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, and PS+ members get an even better deal with 20% off. The new puzzle game, Germinator, is available for bot the PS3 and PS Vita with a demo on each, but sadly there is no cross buy. PS3 users get the final Battlefield 3 DLC ahead of everyone else with End Game rounding out the 5 downloadable packs. There are two new PS2 classics hitting, Midnight Club and Midnight Club 2. MC2 was the height of the franchise. There were no licensed cars, no crappy DUB adverts making your cars looking like chrome abominations; just cars, open cities, and fantastic racing. I hope at some point the PS2 classics make their jump to the Vita, it’s more than capable of handling the games, its just a question of the emulation software being installed. For everything that I covered and anything I didn’t, head over to the Official PlayStation Blog for the details.
