Binary Domain Free on PS Plus

playstation-plus-binary-domain
If you happen to have a PS3 and a PS Plus membership, then you can now download and play Binary Domain for free. Nagoshi’s third-person shooter became available on November 18th on the service. It received fairly decent scores from the press upon it’s release, averaging about a 75% out of 100% score.

I guess there’s a bright side to my having forgotten to cancel my PS Plus subscription this month!

Atlus Announces New Persona Games

So Sega bought Atlus’ parent company recently, as we wrote about previously being rumored. I’m personally pretty stoked by it, having been a fan of the SMT franchise for a number of years now. This means Sega will receive additional revenue and Atlus might end up sticking around for the long haul.

Atlus has released a teaser trailer for Persona 5, due out in Japanland Winter of 2014 for the PS3.

New Site: Sega Masters

I just wanted to drop a memo about a newer website started recently called Sega Masters. It seeks to do with the Sega Master System’s library what Chrontendo did with the NES. That is, to work through the console’s library by release date, one game at a time. So far, the author’s up to 7 games and counting.

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate Anime Trailer

Bayonetta was one of my favorite games from the last handful of years. It sucks a fat one that it’s sequel is headed only to the Wii U, but I suppose it had a much smaller chance of happening otherwise.

Regardless, some folks made an anime movie based on it. It’s being helmed by Fuminori Kizaki, who is renowned for his work on Afro Samurai. It is being released in Japan on November 23rd, 2013. It looks… pretty decent. I’m hoping it will be a lot of fun.
