The Round-Up – PlayStation News Recap (July 24–30)

As always, it’s been a busy week filled with news, features and reviews over at PlayStation LifeStyle. In order to help our readers make sure they didn’t miss anything huge, we’ve created The Round-Up. It’s a weekly look at what has happened on the site, and will get you all caught up on the latest PlayStation news!





  • Chandler kicked Monday off with the highest rated game of the week, as he found Supergiant Games’ Pyre to be fantastic.
  • New freelancer Ken Barnes wrote his first two reviews for the site. He found Aven Colony to be a decent, if underwhelming, futuristic city-builder, and didn’t have much fun with the twin-stick shooter Circuit Breakers.
  • Meanwhile, I had a fun time learning how to play Tiny Trax, the VR-exclusive slot-car racer from FuturLab, and was really impressed by Thunder Lotus Games’ Sundered, a hand-drawn Metroidvania.
  • Jowi Girard-Meli returned to the site after a few months away (he even found time to get married!) with reviews of Zen Studios’ Infinite Minigolf and the visual novel Collar x Malice.
  • Finally, Chandler continued to play way too many PlayStation VR games. He was disappointed by Theseus, but found Smashbox Arena to be a pleasant surprise.



What’s Coming Next Week:

  • Reviews for the latest releases, including Leaving Lyndow, Dino Frontier, CastleStorm VR, The Long Dark, Patapon Remastered, and Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.
  • The staff discusses their most anticipated games in August.
  • A look at the lowest scoring games PlayStation LifeStyle ever reviewed.
  • We’ll have plenty of coverage of Hellblade and LawBreakers.
  • How Gran Turismo Sport can counter Forza Horizon 3 getting the Regalia from Final Fantasy XV.
