Best of PlayStation Network Vol. 1 | OpRain

If you’ve been waiting for a good opportunity to explore what the PlaySation Network has to offer, this is definitely it. The first volume of the Best of PlayStation Network Collection will include four PSN-exclusive games together for the first time: When Vikings Attack!, Sound Shapes, Tokyo Jungle, and Fat Princess.

The collection is described as being able “to give you a taste of what the PlayStation Store has to offer,” but rest assured that this isn’t just a pack of demos. The collection includes the full version of each game. It will be on sale June 25th for $39.99.

When Vikings Attack!


This game takes place in modern-day Britain, but your enemies are anything but modern. Viking hoards have come to town looking to wreck the place, so it’s up to you to organize the townspeople to defend yourselves against an all-out invasion. When Vikings Attack! features co-op play for up to four players and a versus mode.

Sound Shapes

Sound Shapes is a sort of mesh between platformer and rhythm game that features music from artists like Beck, deadmau5, and Jim Guthrie. You make your way through a colorful but dangerous world to the sound of some catchy tunes. The game also gives players the option to create their own levels to share online.

 Tokyo Jungle

Tokyo Jungle gives you the option of playing as one of 50 different kinds of animals trying to survive in modern day Tokyo. The catch? The entire city is devoid of human life. You don’t know what sort of apocalypse has overcome the human race; but whatever sort of animal you choose to be in the game, it’s up to you to  survive in this new jungle.

Fat Princess

It’s a classic video game conundrum- your princess has been kidnapped and stolen away to another castle. In Fat Princess though, fighting to get her back won’t be so easy. Your enemies have been feeding her nothing but lots and lots of cake, which has made rescuing her a bit… problematic. Your army has five different character classes with unique skills you’ll need to rescue and defend your princess, and there are several different game modes available.

  • Worth it for Tokyo Jungle

    • Which is 20 dollars on PSN btw. If you’re buying it for just one game, it’s a mistake. If all 4 sound good and you don’t own any, it’s a value proposition.

      Some people like having things on discs?

    Temped because I don’t have Fat Princess and I heard it was good. I have Tokyo Jungle, but wouldn’t mind having it on a disc. Dunno much about the other two, but they sound crazy enough to work, so… maybe! (Or I can wait a few months and get this for $20 when it inevitably becomes a Greatest Hit or something…)

    I already have Journey Collector’s Edition, this will make a nice addition.
