Howdy, once again folks! Time to catch up on this week’s releases for the PlayStation Network, and the spread this week is something else. Full of strange, new, and fascinating things from the sea to the stars.

From the murky depths there’s new stuff like Octodad: Dadliest Catch for the PlayStation 4, where you control an octopus trying to live his life out as a human. Yeah, really wild stuff. But if that’s too funky for your senses, then have some multiplayer fun driving cartoon racers in Cel Damage HD, a title that’s the cross-buy value of the week.

Over on the PlayStation 3, digital offerings like the tower defense game Defense Technica, and the free-to-play sword-fighting of Soulcalibur Lost Swords (based off the popular fighting game series from Namco Bandai), might be your fancy. The latter is free, so it’s bound to be worth a try.

Plus, don’t overlook what’s new on the PlayStation Vita either: Demon’s Gaze is the big Japanese role-playing game release for this week, with futuristic dog-fighter Starlight Inception, and the Vita debut of The Walking Dead: Season 2 — Episode 1 also being huge highlights.

Sounds like a great menu for this week! Although, that’s just a taste of what you can find on the PlayStation Store. The rest of which you can find out about on the PlayStation Blog.
