The PSNFancast is back in your life, and Chris Hague, Angelo Valdivia and Josiah Renaudin have plenty of catching up to do. The crew opens with both what’s coming out this week on PSN and what they missed last week. The wonders of football, why there shouldn’t be any new Frogger games, the awful release of Bellator and the wonderfully violent The Walking Dead are all discussed, as well as all the serious gaming everyone has been doing over the past two weeks. Angelo puts on his news hat and covers the few recent, PSN-related happenings, which leads to a lengthy discussion on why Sony’s purchase of Gaikai could be a really great thing for the next generation of consoles. Lastly, the group attempts to find a solution for episodic gaming on consoles, which as you’d guess, leads to even more conversation on The Walking Dead.

SideQuest Studios’ new tactical RPG Rainbow Moon has seen the torrential release of new screenshots showing off the gorgeous visuals of this download-only adventure. The vibrant and inviting art style makes the game seem like less of a hardcore strategy experience, perhaps to help entice new gamers to the genre.
