Store Update: 25th February 2014 (North America)

Posted by Sammy Barker

Steal yourself

We’re going to assume that it’s not easy to rob the North American PlayStation Store, but if it was, you’d easily be able to fill a swag bag full of digital goods. In addition to PlayStation 4 sneak-‘em-up Thief, this week’s update brings Bomberman-esque multiplayer title Basement Crawl, arcade compilation Pac-Man Museum, and role-playing bundle Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. What are you, er, buying?

PS4 Games

Thief ($59.99)
You are Garrett, the master thief. Step into the silent shoes of Garrett, a dark and solitary thief with an unrivalled set of skills. The most challenging heists, the most inaccessible loot, the best kept secrets: nothing is out of your reach. The city is yours for the taking. Sneak through the streets, infiltrate heavily-guarded mansions and lurk in every dark corner… unnoticed and unsanctioned.

Basement Crawl ($9.99)
Enter the basement, explore dark, sinister arenas and be at one with the insanity. Bomberman inspired mechanics bring party games to the next generation level. Staying alive won’t be easy. The only way to survive is to become death itself, crushing all opponents. Fight with, or against your friends in a intensive, packed with action online and offline game modes. And remember, because of the horror-based graphics and themes, it’s best if you don’t play this game alone in the dark. You never know what might be hiding behind you.

Magus ($24.99)
Since the creation of the world, and of mankind, obeisance to the gods and their whims was the focal point of the lives of all who inhabit the lands created by the divine. However, as the gods disappeared from people’s daily lives, their power and influence began to wane, and cynicism and secularism replaced piety and belief. Amidst the world’s slow abandonment of the gods, a profoundly devotee and servant of the gods named Kinna infiltrated one the many prisons of the Waterfall Realm in hopes of finding one who would become a god. Encountering Magus, a prisoner who has spent his entire life incarcerated, she believes that she has found who she was sent to look for.

Nothing for me this week, but now that that Olympics are over and I am over this stomach bug thing I had for the past week I will be catching up on some lost game time.

I did however download the WWE Network App a few days ago and as a WWE fan I have to say I am enjoying it.

@RyoHazuki I was just nitpicking, but Hercules is Jupiter's son and Heracles is Zeus' son. Same stories (hence Greco-Roman mythology) but with different cultural details. Disney even got it "wrong" too, cause nobody cares lol

Not to mention Herc’s Adventures looks like a fun platformer.
