Sony is going to great lengths to keep the summer drought at bay with another solid batch of new video game releases for the week of August 10, 2014. Absolutely nothing is releasing on the Xbox One this week, continuing a very long stretch for Microsoft’s latest next-gem console. The Xbox 360 will see the solitary release of Risen 3: Titan Lords on August 12 in the US and August 15 in Europe. while Sony has 8 releases across the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
Starting with the PlayStation BlogDrop, the big release headlining their post is Hohokum, a cross buy and cross save game across the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita. The game has you guiding a kite-like being through a colorful playground in which “you alone decide your goals, pace and purpose”. The bright pastel colors that border on neon give a whimsical sense of an updated aesthetic to The Beatle’s The Yellow Submarine.
