    Thanks Hidden, this will come in handy! Also I'd recommend Costume Quest. Great little game with a ton of charm.

    I like it when he's angry.

  • Deleted user 29 March 2011 00:32:23
    Mmmm, even alphabetically listed! Nice one HiddenAway. Under Siege is another one that should be out this year but currently stuck in QA hell apparently.

    Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars, for the love of God put that in the list, although you could just add SARPBC 2 which is out at some point in the future and how could I forget Critter Crunch? Great fun in local co-op

    I'd like to know how you can recommend The Secret of Monkey Island and Tales of Monkey Island, but forget Monkey Island 2, the absolute best in the series (and possibly the best adventure game ever).

    Heh, I forgot that was even on PSN :-D

    Another upcoming release I'm really looking forward to is Spelunker HD.
  • Deleted user 29 March 2011 08:36:34
    Oh, and StarDrone is already out (and pretty good too)

    No Dead Nation in the recommended games?

    Also Nobi Nobi Boy - not everyone's cup of tea obviously but worth a look IMO.

    Stranger's Wrath is supposed to be coming this year, though it's been a bit quiet.

    Mainly because:

    1. I wasn't aware it was out
    2. No-one else told me when I was asking for recommendations.

    Like I say, the list isn't static, I'm willing to add titles as they come in as long as the titles are on PSN and people recommend it enough/is ranked well in Metacritic with reputable reviews.

    Not a bad idea but it won't be long until most of the games on PSN have at least one recommendation. :) You might as well just link to a Metacritic search.

    In the upcoming releases, as someone else pointed out StarDrone has been out for a while. You could also add Stranger's Wrath, Retro/Grade, Outland, Amy, and Tokyo Jungle if it's not cancelled.

    Trine is worth adding to the recommended list.

    And Trine 2 to the other.

    Great to see Choplifter is getting a remake.

    I'd add Tekken 5: DR and Siren Blood Curse to the recommended list, and to a some extent Cuboid and Lead & Gold.

    Is this list for Sony exclusives? If not, then Afterburner Climax is pretty good, and Final Fight, Sonic The Hedgehog and Worms 2.

    flOw for another chilled game?
    I'd also recommend Sackboy's pre-historic moves if it didn't come with the LBP2 disc.

    edit: Does the list look at value for money also?

    Doesn't have to be exclusive to PSN, no.

    It does come with LBP2 in fact.

    That's what I mean. I'm not recommending it because it's better to get it with LBP2 rather than off PSN.

    @M_of_the_sys: Ah, sorry. Misunderstood you there.

    I'm quite looking forward to Auditorium HD. It's out in NA already, but if I'm not mistaken it's supposed to be released over here as well.
