We’ve hit that point in the summer when we’re all over it. The beach brings with it memories of sand in your bathing suit and those kids that kick it up all over your towel. The public pool is brimming with questionable liquids, barbecues only add more heat to the air, and the mall is already stocked with fall clothes. Now we're just waiting for the moment when it will finally cool off, and we can’t take the anticipation. Why do this to yourself? It’s far more relaxing to spend the day on your couch with a controller in your hand. Put your feet up, kick back with a nice glass of iced tea or a frosty beer, and check out these deals on PS4 for the week of August 5.
If you’re a fan of artificial intelligence, you should definitely check out the Quantic Dream/Sony Interactive Entertainment game Detroit: Become Human. In the game, you play as three androids: Kara, a house maid and caretaker; Connor, a cop who hunts down malfunctioning androids; and Markus, another caretaker. These three break through their programming and take part in a revolution. If you love story over fighting, this is the game for you. It’s incredibly immersive, and gets pretty deep into what makes something or someone human. The voice acting and mocap is phenomenal. The Deluxe Edition of the game is on sale for $49.69, down from $69.99. You can check out our write up here, and our thoughts on a new Chloe (spoilers) here.
