This Week’s New PS4, PS3, And Vita Deals Announced For US

Another week of deals and discounts have arrived on the PlayStation Store in the US. There is no game- or publisher-specific sale this week–and thus, far fewer things are on sale–but there are still some worthwhile deals to be had across PlayStation platforms.
Two of the year's best PS4 games are both on sale right now. Most notably, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which was only released in August, has dropped from $40 to $30 for everyone. Meanwhile, PlayStation Plus members can get Nier: Automata for $39 ($42 without Plus).
Other PS4 deals of note include Murdered: Soul Suspect for $5 and RBI Baseball 17 for $8. Warhammer fans will find Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch for $28, Space Hulk: Ascension for $24.49, and Space Hulk for $21.
PS3 and Vita owners have almost no options at all. Space Hulk's Vita version is $16, AeternoBlade is $3.74, and Blue-Collar Astronaut is $4 (with Plus, or $7 without it). Beyond that, there is some discounted Pinball Arcade DLC and little else.

There's no arguing the fact that Cuphead, the punishing action game inspired by 1930's animation, is beautiful to look at. But how did the game's creators, Studio MDHR, achieve its uniquely distinct style? And, why does that style seem to work so well with the game's mechanics?
In the above video, Dan Crowd dives behind the scenes to take a quick look at some of Cuphead's cartoon inspirations. He takes a look at the traditional animation techniques they used in their creation, and how that process influenced some of the game's particular visual flourishes. He also takes a look at the limitations of these methods of creation, and how they inadvertently mesh perfectly with the genre of game Studio MDHR decided to make.
If this is the first time you've heard about Cuphead, be sure to check out our review. Peter Brown sums up its near universal praise by staying that it “flawlessly captures the era its developers so clearly revere” and that It's also..
