1. Playstation Now Beta Allows for Digital Game Rental System

As you can see from our photographs, users now have the option to "rent" a game for one, sevenv, or 30 days. As PlayStation Now is still in beta, prices are currently not available, though prices previously hinted at may give us a clue. It'll be interesting to see if rental is a feature Sony sticks with, and if so, what the cost of each rental tier will be.


2. Walking Dead Game of the Year Edition coming to PS4

According to the GameStop listing (which we have screencapped for you above), this PS4 edition of the episodic game's first season will be released in North America on June 17, and will cost $30.

The Walking Dead already has a Game of the Year edition available on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, comprising the entirety of the first season, the 400 Days DLC, the soundtrack, and a behind-the-scenes video. We can probably assume that the PS4 version will be similar, but details are yet to be confirmed by developer Telltale Games.

7. Conception 2 Review

Conception 2: Children of the Seven Stars isn't a race for the skilled, but a marathon for the determined. I spent more than 45 hours exploring the game's repetitive dungeons, wooing its generic characters and desperately trying to care about what I was doing. As if the game's drab gameplay wasn't enough to turn me away, Conception 2's underage eroticism is alienating and just plain icky. Animated scenes feel like an ode to upskirts, and the game has enough boob jiggling to give me whiplash. It's a trashy, thoroughly underwhelming experience I cannot wait to forget.

10. Severed Preview

In Severed, players take on the role of a woman who wakes in a desert with a missing arm and perhaps missing memory.

The game, which uses swipes with a finger on a screen in combat, has players on the hunt for body parts and the story of how this unnamed protagonist woke in a desert.

It's a compelling story coming from the creators of Guacamelee. It's also the first game in Drinkbox's history that won't be a platformer.
