PlayStation Network Releases, November 1st: Hydrophobia: Prophecy, More PS2 Classics

It’s November 1st, 2011, which means a new month with a lot of new stuff, including this week, Hydrophobia: Prophecy and three new PlayStation 2 Classics.

Hydrophobia Prophecy Image

Obviously the really big news this first week of November is the launch of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 3 in North AmericaI’m sure you’ve heard about it plenty enough — and while Drake’s latest quest throws players through the sun-scorched sandy drenches of the Rub’ al Khali desert located in the Arabian Peninsula, Hydrophobia: Prophecy on the other hand, makes great use of an opposite, but almost equally adversarial, element.

Water. A force of nature which can take many forms and in large amounts can be seriously deadly. It’s this constant threat throughout Hydrophobia, as you, Kate Wilson, try to escape a sinking underwater city (I’m guessing the builders never saw the movie Titanic) by risking though dangerous pathways filled with flooded obstacles and electricity-prone hazards. PlayStation Plus subscribers get the game free for November ($10 regular price), so if you’re still thirsty (see what I did there!) for more adventure once you’ve put down Uncharted 3, how about giving Dark Energy Digital’s recent creation a dive! (See what I did there again!)

Also available this week, Sony returns to the endless catalog of PlayStation 2 games and retrieves three new titles to download: Raiden III from Seibu Kaihatsu, Bloodrayne from Terminal Reality (oh hey, the made Ghostbusters: The Video Game), and Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland from Natsume. Personally, if last week’s PixelJunk SideScroller left you itching for Japanese-centric 2D shooters, it’s a good itch believe me, Raiden III is your best bet to ease that affliction. Pretty pseudo-3D graphics and a neat power-up mechanic that let’s you level-up specific weapons is what’s in store if you pick up this absolute gem of PS2 game for the absolute steal of a price — so please, check it out!
