PlayStation Update: Toro’s Revolution
There are some new apps on the Vita this week and one you will hopefully fall in love with as I have. We will get to that in a minute, first lets get to the games added this week on the PSN. The new IP from Capcom, Remember Me, is now available to download from the PSN. The game will run you $59.99. Limbo, one of my favorite indie titles is getting a release on the Vita. The game is $14.99 and I know that is a bit much for a game that is a few years old, but it does come with cross-buy if you have not nabbed the PS3 version of the title. The sequel the PSP title, Class of Heroes is now available on the Vita as well. Class of Heroes 2 is a PSP title, and amazing enough it is on the PSP store as well. The title will run you $24.99 and since it is a digital download will work on both the PSP and the Vita. Now on to the new apps on the Vita. Paint Park Plus is an updated version of Paint Park that will let you draw and color with the ease of the Vita’s touchscreen. Paint Park Plus is free to download and has add-on extras that you can purchase individually. Now on to something that had me addicted since I downloaded last night, Toro’s Friend Network. Toro is the mascot for the PlayStation brand in Japan and he is trying to have you connect with other PSN users. Toro’s Friend Network is much like the Mii Plaza from the 3DS, a place where you can meet new PSN friends and interact with one another. You when you get friends, they head to your garden where you can have them help build you a quaint garden. You can also head to Toro’s Friend Dungeon and adventure with your new acquainted friends. You can earn coins to buy outfits and outfit you ID card. It’s a fun little distraction that could grow your friends list. The music resembles elevator tunes, but is so happy and addicting, you can’t get mad at Toro and his gang of avatars. Toro’s Friend Network is free to download. If you are a PlayStation Plus member it is June and that means a new list of games added to the Instant Games collection, and we start off with a bang. The incredible Deus Ex: Human Revolution is available to download for free for all PS+ members. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an incredible action RPG, full of mature story telling, stealthy action, and incredible music/visuals. So if you are a PS+ member, please go and chase this game down; one of the most superb games of this generation. For everything here and anything that I didn’t cover head over to the Official PlayStation Blog.
