The PS Play 2016 Lineup Has Been Announced

"I'm prejudging these games on a weirdness= quality quotient. "
In a post on the Playstation Blog, Sony has posted its upcoming releases for PS Play 2016, and that line up is: Headlander, ABZÛ, Brut@l, and Bound. Per the PS Blog: All four games are available for pre-order starting today, making their console-first digital debuts on PS4. To celebrate the launch of these titles, PlayStation Plus members will save 20% on pre-orders for PLAY 2016 games. As an added bonus, each game in the PLAY 2016 lineup comes with an exclusive PS4 theme when pre-ordered. But that’s not all, anyone (PS Plus member or not) who purchases two or more PLAY 2016 titles by August 23 will receive a coupon for 20% off their entire cart purchase at PlayStation Store. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Cl79YPnBQQ&feature=youtu.be So lets take a closer look at these games starting with Headlander. This one is from Adult Swim and Double Fine. It’s a puzzle platformer. In it you play a disembodied human head that takes over robot bodies. I give it a stamp of weirdness approval. It launches on July 26th. Next is ABZU an underwater game that has you explore the beautiful underwater world. It’s underwater. There’s underwater colors. You wear scuba equipment and flippers. It’s probably going to look great, but I’m not seeing any disembodied heads so… kind of a let down. It launches on August 2nd. Then we have Brut@l which it looks like a DND style fantasy role playing game, only everything is made out of ASCII characters. Ok, here we go. Amp up the weird. I like it. It launches on August 0th. [caption id="attachment_85721" align="alignnone" width="640"]Yeah, that's exactly the weirdness I'm looking for. Yeah, that's exactly the weirdness I'm looking for.[/caption] Lets keep going. And Finally there is Bound which looks like it will be pretty intriguing from the trailer, and has “story and gameplay mechanics infused with modern dance.” I’m going to hold up my hand flat here and tilt it rapidly from side to side saying “Ehhhhhh,” in a very unsure manner. It launches on August 16th. Alright Fuse fans get out there and play!
