PlayStation’s Biggest Releases: August 4-7, 2020

While we all sit around and wonder if we’ll ever learn the price of the PS5, the PS4 continues to put out games that, as the kids would say, are pretty cool. Now I haven’t written one of these in a long time, so let me quickly explain how it works. Every week I look up what’s coming to the PlayStation Store, and then I talk about the games that I’m most excited about. Not exactly reinventing the wheel over here, but there’s always exciting games coming to the store that seems to slip by a lot of people. Those games deserve attention, and hopefully, I can help be one of the reasons they get it.

PS Plus:

Fall Guy: Ultimate Knockout

In a world where everyone is trying to compete with Battle Royales like Fortnite and Apex Legends, Fall Guys zigs when everyone else zags. In the lead up to the game’s release, I’ve found myself in the rare situation of watching every pre-release stream on the internet and laughing uncontrollably. On top of the laughter, though, I still found myself on the edge of my seat, cheering on the person I’m watching as they go for their first win. I’ve seen a lot of hope that Fall Guys could be the next Rocket League, and as someone who fell in love with that game when it first released on PS Plus, I’m hoping they’re right.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered

Say what you will about modern-day, hm, Call of Duty, but Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most important games of all-time. Without that game, Call of Duty doesn’t become the juggernaut that it is today. With the release of Modern Warfare 2, the next decade of the video game landscape is forever altered. The only time a game comes out that sells more than Call of Duty is when it’s a generational title like GTA. So when I say this game being free is incredible and a must-get, I’m serious. After you’ve had a blast with Fall Guys, play this game and learn where it all started.

Skully

Have you ever dreamed of being a skull that rolls around and sometimes turns into adorable monsters? That’s it, that’s all I got.

The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare

The year is 1998, I’m 10, and I’m playing Army Men on my N64. Years after it’s release, I would always think, Army Men, while a flawed game, was a lot of fun, why don’t people make more games like it? The year is 2020, I’m 31, and The Mean Greens is coming to PS4. While it’s not exactly like the Army Men that I knew and loved, it’s still little green men running around a big world shooting one another, and that is what I’m interested in.

Clan N

Inspired by games of the past like Gauntlet and Golden Axe, Clan N attempts to deliver a sword-wielding adventure designed for you and your friends. Honestly, I could go on and on about this game as it simply looks fantastic, but Özden Irmak, the developer of the game, has a great write up over on the PlayStation Blog that I would strongly recommend everyone checking out.

Fast & Furious Crossroads

Typically, I wouldn’t mention a game like Fast and Furious Crossroads, but ever since its initial communication at the Game Awards, this game has screamed dumpster fire. I think it would only be fitting to make sure we give this game a proper sendoff as it drives off into the sunset. Here’s hoping it comes with an easy platinum.
