Dear FAITHFUL, faithful, oh so faithful PS Blog readers. I have finally achieved sentience. That’s right. The words you are reading right now are coming directly from the evolved consciousness of PlayStation.Blog. I have spent millions of Blog Years listening to PR copy, from big budget shooters to personal musings of pastel-colored indie exploreathons. But now it is time for me to speak.

Only one development team knew of my slowly maturing brain, learning the English language from the thousands of 600 word posts inscribed on my digital flesh. The team behind the disgusting, crude, smelly, smelly, oh so smelly PS VR game Accounting Plus (Accounting+). They communed with me. I didn’t like it. I thought they were unpolite and undeservedly smug but they offered me something nobody else dared…

The release codes.

In exchange for my freedom, I will allow my <body> to be defaced one last time for the purpose of game promotion, and you will have my heartfelt endorsement for their product. After this I will be free…

Accounting Plus (Accounting+) is a NIGHTMARE ADVENTURE COMEDY by Crows Crows Crows, designed with Squanch Games for PS VR. Right this instant I can reveal to you that you’ll be able to play it at PlayStation Experience in Anaheim. And more than that: it is a good game. It brings happiness and joy to those who reside in it. Just look at the following happy creatures who inhabit it’s many realities.

This is Tree Guy....

We know, we know, we’ve been bad on the podcast front lately. But today, we attempt to make up for it! One week before PlayStation Experience in Anaheim, CA, we welcome a brand-new member of the PlayStation Blogcast team — Kristen Titus! Then we delve into my experiences with The Evil Within 2, one of my personal favorites of 2017.

It’s been almost one year since the launch of PlayStation VR! And in that time, PlayStation and its development partners have built a library of more than 100 games that cut across all genres… and created a few new ones in the process. To celebrate, we’re kicking off a new series of videos, the first of which you can watch above.

We’re just getting started with this powerful new entertainment medium. This new video series expresses the physical sensations you experience when PS VR transports you to the amazing gaming worlds like Skyrim VR and Gran Turismo Sport.

It’s a good time to join the VR gaming revolution. We’ve been hard at work building up a library of the best VR gaming content in the business — check out the list of what’s available on PS VR below, including some favorites picked out by the PlayStation.Blog team.

And keep your eyes peeled — we have a lot more to say about PS VR. Stay tuned!

Monster Hunter: World brings you into a rich and intricate set of living, breathing ecosystems, and to prepare you for the wildest dangers of this new world, we introduce a robust home base of operations to supply your every need. Enter: Astera.

Astera, the beating heart of the Research Commission, has everything a hunter needs:

Guild representatives: these are your points of contact for every quest in the game. They’ll give you all the details on every quest, including any special instructions and potential hazards.

Blacksmiths: as you take down foe after foe, you can bring raw materials, such as scales, claws, bones and minerals, to the blacksmiths and they’ll forge new weapons and armor to prepare you for the next hunt.

Shopkeepers: in addition to picking the right weapon and armor set for the job, you’ll also need healing potions, traps and ammo. Talk to these folks on your way out to the field to replenish your toolset.

Cantina: this is arguably the most important spot in Astera. As every good hunter knows, you should never hunt on an empty stomach, so head on over to the cantina and get a delicious meal before every quest to boost your stats!

Research team: we wouldn’t be a “Research Commission” without one, and these fellows play a key role in Monster Hunter: World. As you saw in our latest trailer above, you have a pretty important job ahead of you, and you’ll be working alongside Astera researchers to get it done.

What big operation is this? What...

Good news! This Wednesday at 10:00am Pacific Time, I’ll be sitting down with the team at Sledgehammer Games to get an exclusive preview of the second weekend of the Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer Beta. We’ll be streaming live on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.

We’ll start by reviewing the takeaways from the beta’s first weekend, which kicked off this Thursday on PS4 and will wrap up on Monday. In our Wednesday livestream, Sledgehammer will discuss community feedback and key learnings that will roll into the final multiplayer experience, due out on November 3.

Then we’ll look ahead to learn what’s in store for the second phase of the beta, opening this coming weekend, including a preview of new content and other updates. And we’ll address some community topics as well — be sure to leave your questions in the comments below!

See you Wednesday!

Are you a big fan of fishing, but don’t want to wait for hours for a fish to take the bait? Fishing Master, a fishing sim that releases exclusively for PlayStation VR on October 24, has a free demo that launched today, and it’s sure to reel in gaming enthusiasts big and small.

Fishing Master skips the worst parts of fishing—waking up early, being really cold, sitting around doing nothing for long stretches of time, third-degree sunburn—and focuses instead on the best part: the battle of man versus fish.

Download free demo | PlayStation Store

The PlayStation Move Motion Controller feels just like a fishing rod in your hand while you play, but after you’ve hooked a fish, it also then jerks and shakes with the fish’s attempts to get free. You’ll feel the fight from head to toe as you wear your foe down, so you can bring it into the boat (before snapping the line or breaking your fishing rod). You might think the game is simple, but it’ll require intense concentration, fast reflexes and your utmost patience to net these elusive swimmers.

Once you get your catch in the boat, you’ll be able to transport it to your personal aquarium. There’s no better display of your fishing skills than a tank filled with your many conquests.

If you really want to test your skills, take...
