Rag Doll Kung Fu, our favorite (only?) PSN kung fu fighting game featuring plastic dolls will release a pack today in Europe, nothing confirmed for North America but we expect it to appear there as well.

Hunt, Fish and Even Shoot The Bird(s) With Cabela’s Outdoor Adventures
While most of us were born into a life of comfort and relative luxury in the big cities of the world, some were born into a life of a little less comfort.

Assassin’s Creed 2: Black and White Editions
We suspect most people will be buying Assassin’s Creed 2 when it hits this Fall, judging by the popularity of the game steadily increasing over the past few months.
From AC: Bloodlines on the PSP having some crossovers with the PS3 game to Ubisoft plugging the game in “all platforms and mediums that could support [their] franchises”, it would apppear that the world is slowly going Assassin’s Creed bonkers.
Now it has been revealed that special editions of the game will be available for pre-order.
