Just because Tokyo Game Show 2011 is going on and attention spans are center focused on that, doesn’t mean we haven’t forgot about what’s hot and fresh on the PlayStation Network this week. We have two particular gems that are certainly worth your time, and possibly money, so let’s get right to them shall we!

As the PlayStation Network PLAY event draws to a close, much like the summer weather around the country, it does so with Sega’s Renegade Ops, a top-down vehicular combat game from Avalanche Studios (hey, the guys who did Just Cause.) Specifically where it’s at for this digital-download is it’s 4 player co-operative play that gives players tons of different weapons and automobiles to do battle in.

There’s also a single player campaign in case you’re wondering (offline two-player split screen as well) that is a blast to play! No seriously, a lot of blasts from what I can tell from images and videos.

A long time ago, which isn’t so long ago if you think about it, but this industry moves so fast that noteworthy items go by the wayside quickly, umm anyway… there were two exceptional games created by two now legendary game designers. Populous, developed by Peter Molyneux, and Out of This World, developed by Eric Chahi.

Today, and available now through the PlayStation Store, we have one of those men trying their hand at making a spiritual successor to one particular aforementioned title. In this scenario, it’s Eric Chahi with Ubisoft’s From Dust, a truly unique god game that takes its inspirational cues from Peter Molyneux’s Populous.

From Dust, like many god games, places players in the role of controlling the world, strategically, on a large scale. Where in lies the wrinkle though in this game, is that instead of controlling people — you control environmental elements of soil, lava and water in an effort to save, and enlighten, a nomadic tribe. All in real time, and all with interesting combinations that greatly effect the world and the tribes people that live on it.

What I find quite alluring about From Dust are it’s visuals. Something about it’s primitive-man like themes mixed with bright colorful splashes of scenery, really pop out. And with a time-killer of genre that are god games, that’s certainly a plus when you’ll be staring at a them for such a long period.

Both Renegade Ops & From Dust receive 20% discounts this week if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you lucky dog you! As always, try before you buy and well see you next week!
