Dark Light

Here’s the full lineup of PlayStation 4 and PS Vita games coming to the PlayStation Store on 3rd October, 2017.

And breathe. Things are a little calmer on the PlayStation Store this week, a short lull before the next wave of AAA blockbusters arrive.

Highlight of the week is probably Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, the PlayStation 4 remaster of Capcom’s cult 2012 RPG. Although moderately successful on its initial release, the game was slightly overlooked, and its fortunes not helped by some irritating technical shortcomings. If the remaster gets the spit and polish it deserves, it will be well worth revisiting.

Also recommended is Red Candle’s atmospheric horror adventure, Detention. The game – which has a been a huge success on PC – is set in 1960s when Taiwan was under martial law, and tells the story of two students trapped and haunted by evil creatures.

This week also sees the PS4 release of Battle Garegga Rev.2016, a new port of the punishing 1996 arcade shooter from M2. The game is the first release in the new M2 Shot Triggers series.

And finally, the Game Name of the Week award goes to Jydge, the self-proclaimed “roguehate top-down shooter” from 10tons.

Here is the full list of PlayStation Store releases for next week:
