2w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill is here with this weeks new PlayStation and PSN game releases below, as follows:

Two long-awaited, rather mysterious titles are not only coming to PlayStation this week - they'll be free for PlayStation Plus members from the get-go.

The adorably puzzling Road Not Taken puts players into the boots of a tiny ranger, seeking to rescue lost children after an unforgiving winter storm. Procedural level generation will keep you on your toes, and will mean a different story each time you play.

Metrico is an infographic-inspired side-scrolling platformer that uses PS Vita's unique hardware to deliver an experience you won't find anywhere else. Figure out how to manipulate the very world around you to overcome unassuming obstacles, and veg out to an ultra-chill soundtrack by Dutch composer Palmbomen.

Other highlights this week include The Swapper, part of the PlayStation Store PLAY 2014 promotion (PS Plus members can pre-order to save a few bucks), and a standalone version of legendary brawler Ultra Street Fighter IV. Read on for more details on this week's new releases, and enjoy the Drop!

To quote: Hey budding C.O.U.N.T.E.R agents! David Nottingham, (Dynamighty Creative Director) here with some exciting CounterSpy news!

Yesterday, the good folks at Sony, along with our co-conspirators at C.O.U.N.T.E.R declassified the Release Date information for CounterSpy.

The day that you will be able to get your hands on CounterSpy (and hopefully prevent this crazed superpower plot to destroy our moon), is August 19th in North America.

For those who are not familiar, CounterSpy is an Action Stealth side-scroller from Dynamighty (that's us) set during the Cold War. You play as an agent for C.O.U.N.T.E.R, whose singular goal is to prevent the superpowers from accomplishing their crazy race to destroy the moon with nuclear missiles.

The August 19th PSN release is for PS4, PS3 & PS Vita and the price is $14.99. As a reminder, the game is Cross-Buy & also Cross-Save, so purchase it once and you'll have a copy on all three devices!

As we count down to that date, we've also got some help from some talented folks at PlayStation, who helped us by putting together this launch...

To quote: Hi, I'm Nick Burcombe, head of Liverpool-based indie development studio [Register or Login to view links]. We've joined forces with publisher [Register or Login to view links] to bring our award-winning game Table Top Racing to PS Vita on August 5th.

I was part of the original team that created WipeOut back in the mid '90s for PlayStation, and I have always loved combat racers and driving games above all other genres - games like Micro Machines and Mario Kart.

So when we were looking at building a new racer, it felt natural to reference those classics when crafting Table Top Racing. We set out to capture some of that essence of what made them so much fun, and I think we've done a pretty good job on that front!

Table Top Racing features a host of crazy tracks complete with shortcuts, over-sized obstacles, jumps, and all manner of other hazards. As the game picks up speed, you need to understand the best racing lines and drift momentum you can get with some of the later cars - it's pretty frantic.

We've included one shot weapon power-ups which give players a temporary advantage, be it a speed boost, missile...
