Hotline-Miami-2-Screen-1-1280x720

Starting out as a lone PC indie title, Hotline Miami has somewhat become a cult classic. The ultra violent and psychologically thrilling 2D action title has already made its way to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, and next week it makes the jump to Sony’s new hardware.

The PlayStation 4 version is being handled by port developer Abstraction Games, who announced yesterday that the game will be available for download via PSN on August 19th. Better yet, publisher Devolver Digital loves the idea of cross-buy, meaning those of you who already own the game on a Sony system will be able to download the PS4 version absolutely free.

If you don’t own Hotline Miami yet and you’re a little confused about it, don’t worry. All you really need to know is that you’re going to die…a lot. Hotline Miami is brutally difficult but also extremely rewarding, with bite-sized areas allowing you to experiment without the harm of losing lots of progress if you’re reckless.

The game is also extremely violent, with the 2D perspective not really doing well to hide the actions of your characters. Hell, you probably won’t even know why you’re tasked with cleaning out buildings full of goons in the first place. Your phone rings, someone asks you to go to an address, and you start killing. Confusing, right?

Despite that, Hotline Miami really is a gem of a game, and you should consider giving it a go before the sequel releases in the near future.

I am a little snowflake, and you can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Also, Geoff's a bastard.

    More people need to play Hotline Miami, loved and hated it while I was still doing a series on it. The Soundtrack is also pretty epic, along with the plot twists :D

  • Sith JJ

    This is such a cool game. Another one to try is Monaco. Pretty darn fun.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Like I need a reason to kill. MWUHAHAHAHAHA!

    • Kensei Seraph

      There’s always a reason to kill a random goon.
      They probably kick kittens and punch puppies.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        And always alliterate?

        • Sith JJ

          Is that a warning to Kensei?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            And ruin the surprise?

            Oh I see what you did there, it was a trick question. :/

          • Kensei Seraph

            I’d make a great elite random goon.
            You know those ones who wear a different coloured outfit and have twice the health of the standard random goons.

          • Sith JJ

            By paying for it in micro-transactions? Wouldn’t that make you the noob with cash though? ;)

          • Kensei Seraph

            I’m thinking old school games where they only have 5 character models for enemies and stronger enemies are just palette swaps.

          • Sith JJ

            Haha. Oh dude. That’s so legend.

  • Pieter Kruger

    Rejoice, yet another mobile quality Indie title to be re released on PS4……

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Dude, where were you yesterday when the Xbone killed it with their presentation (including all the indies)? It was your moment!

      • Sith JJ

        Indies: The AAA’s of quality gaming today.

      • Pieter Kruger

        I knew MS would kill, just didn’t expect Sony to bring a knife to a gun fight, sad really!

        • Hammersteyn

          Hopefully they can start moving console now.

          • Pieter Kruger

            Numbers is vanity, quality is sanity! ????

          • Hammersteyn

            And if I quoted the same to you when the 360 outsold PS3? Yeah numbers are still numbers ????

        • Sith JJ

          That’s probably because Sony’s knife works better than MS’s gun. ;)

          • Hammersteyn

            The gun uses a kinect scope?

          • Sith JJ

            LOL

          • Pieter Kruger

            Lara’s knife works better than, oh wait, you wouldn’t know……ROFL!

          • Hammersteyn

            I thought about this last night and I bet you it’s a timed exclusive. Otherwise I will probably buy a XBOX

          • Pieter Kruger

            It’s not timed unfortunately, but would’ve thought if anything Quantum Break, Fable Legends, Halo:Guardians, Forza, Sunset Overdrive, Titanfall, Forza Horizon 2, Project Spark, Scalebound, D4, Crimson Dragon (sure there’s more, did I mention any Indies?) EA Access, external HD/USB support, all the media support you’d ever need etc. would be good reasons to get a XB1? ????

          • Sith JJ

            I’m only interested in Quantum Break and Forza there. And the EA access puts me off enough to not worry about it.
            Absence of good indies and strategy games is a bummer though.
            BUT
            Dat controller.

          • Pieter Kruger

            There’s literary 100’s of indies coming, “good” Indies, exclusive Indies and times exclusive Indies (not a fan really)

          • Sith JJ

            Oh. I couldn’t figure out if you were sarcastic or not there. My mistake. That’s cool then. I’m not a fanboy per-se, I’m just a pc gamer because it does everything I need it to and because financially it makes more sense to me. My pc is literally what holds every electronic thing in my house together. Like the SkyNet of my house (only it hasn’t traveled back in time to kill me, yet)

          • Hammersteyn

            Indies are like Nes games. I know you like to throw the term indiestation but seeing how it’s coming to XBOX you need to check it out.

          • Hammersteyn

            Quantum Break maybe, reviews depending. Halo 5 almost definitely. Titanfall? Hahahahah no. Media Support? The rest of the games not so much (thanks for the list, I had no idea any of these existed :P) Watching movies on my console? Why? No.1 reason would be Tomb Raider. But I still stand by my gut feeling that it’s a timed exclusive.

          • Pieter Kruger

            I noted how MS went out of their way for the 1st time to clearly state and show on screen if games were timed/console or PC and Xbox exclusive. They clearly stated at one point that everything shown now will be Xbox One exclusives. Think they’re worried about being sued, Sony’d better do the same to avoid spending more time in court! ????

          • Hammersteyn

            Guess we will have to wait and see.

          • Sith JJ

            Oh woe is me. One game I can’t play. ;)

    • Hammersteyn

      Mobile? Oh you.

      • Sith JJ

        lol

  • Hammersteyn

    Yay, oh wait. Played this on PC i dunno. Centuries ago?

    • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

      I think it released a few days after WW2 ended IIRC

      • Hammersteyn

        hahaha

      • Sith JJ

        Great time for gaming.
