Perhaps this is going to be a big announcement at PSX. One of the bundles for Star Wars Battlefront featured three PS2 games to be included. While it was initially thought that these would be remasters of some kind, Digital Foundry has taken a look and it seems that these PS2 Star Wars games are being emulated. For a video showcasing the difference between the games running on PS2 and on the PS4 emulation, you can check it out here. And while the Playstation 2 generation was over 10 years ago, there are certainly some classics that players would love to play again on their Playstation 4.
Something different and unique is coming to Steam Early Access, titled, Space Food Truck. With a name like that, it might think this to be a simulation game of sorts, but in fact it is a deck building game. Players use cards to perform actions, move around the ship, and help avoid the deadly hazards in space. The premise sounds fun, and the art style certainly fits the mood. Check out the trailer below for a look at the game. If you'd like to know more how the game works, click here to see a basic overview video.
With online digital stores such as Steam and GOG, it might be easy to overlook the Microsoft store on PC. Microsoft today announced 10 Days of 10 Cent Deals which gives great savings to music, apps, movies, and games for the price of a dime. Most of the games that are on sale can be played on a Windows 10 device. While there are several games that seem to be mobile titles or straight mobile ports, there are a few that are Xbox-enabled. This means you can earn achievements by linking your Xbox Live profile. Games such as Hitman GO, Hydro Thunder Hurricane, and Reckless Racing Ultimate are some Xbox-enabled games. Paying 10 cents for these games is a steal, and one sale you should take advantage of. Of course, if you are wanting to stay in for the night, you can rent Jurassic World for the same price. Either way, keep checking back everyday for more deals.
