There are a lot of new games on PSN this week, though nothing that will tear this writer away from Destiny 2. This week includes the return of NBA Live, as well as the early release for NBA 2K18, JRPG Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana and Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. Below, I’m going to highlight a couple smaller games that interest me. Also this week, we will take a look at some of the sales available in the PSN store.
Tooth and Tail
Adorable mice, pigs and owls in an engaging Real-Time-Strategy game, Tooth And Tail reminds me of some of the things I love about Age of Empires, while populating the genre with a fantasy world and addictive competitive gameplay. Sessions are shorter and more streamlined, while still requiring strategy and planning.
Happy Dungeons is a cute dungeon crawler that you play with up to three of your friends. It’s absolutely adorable, and should make a great co-op option for you and your friends — if you can find three others who actually own the game, of course.

While there are a few other new games out this week, I wanted to highlight PSN’s weekly sale, called the Playstation Picks sale this week. Here are a few of my highlights for the week. Prices listed are for PS+ subscribers:
