North American PS Store Update For April 23rd – Undisputed Red Guerrilla

Sorry mates, this update takes the cake. We share the same demos, most of the add-on features and videos; but North America edges out Europe thanks to Sonic, Disgaea, Naruto, and a couple of Alpha Protocol dev videos. Oh yeah, let’s not forget a crazy little thing called Pulse. But today, the demos take the center stage.

The Joker as playable character exclusive to PS3 version of Batman: Arkham Asylum

If you were quick enough, you may have noticed some posters in Home today advertising the fact that The Joker will be a playable character in Rocksteady’s upcoming Batman: Arkham Asylum game.

And just as people were trying to wrap their heads around the announcement, the ads were gone – leaving people to question if the Killing Joke was on them.

The Homerun – 23rd April 09; EA Sports Complex and Star Trek

Welcome to another Homerun – the weekly run through of the biggest things happening in the world of PlayStation Home. There is a lot to talk about this week, so let’s get down to it!

Without doubt, the biggest new addition and probably the biggest shock is the introduction of EA’s Sports Complex.

Sony: An ‘electrifying announcement’ on April 27th

Sony is teasing us today on what they call an ‘electrifying announcement’ on the 27th of April, which is a Monday.

This tease comes from one of the rotating banners on the North American PlayStation website.

European PS Store Update For 23rd April – Episodes Galore

Now this is more like it. A more hefty PS Store update complete with demos, PSone and PSN games, on top of a ton of downloadable content. Europe is such a big place; some games take a little bit of time to make it all over the place. Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode Two (big title, let me catch my breath) makes it to Europe today.
Help us lay the hammer down in Mars with the public release of the Red Faction demo, throw fisticuffs with UFC 2009 Undisputed, get them HAWX up in the air, or refuse (or not) to give your money to The Godfather.

Hong Kong PS Store Update For April 23rd – Linger In MLB Themes

Not a very eventful Hong Kong update today either. We got the motley crew of Linger in Shadows loose in the streets of Hong Kong spreading tons of free MLB PS3 themes. Nite Owl and Rorschach are promoting physical pain to the criminal element in that region. Naruto is keeping up the free storm packs, but this time in Japanese.
We are waiting for more robust European and North American updates.

Star Trek D-A-C to launch soon

Star Trek D-A-CParamount have announced today that Star Trek D-A-C (we still have no idea what this stands for but we dutifully note the addition of hyphens) will be hitting the PSN “shortly”. With the XBL version beaming down in May, we expect this to mean possibly the following month or so.

Japanese PS Store Update For April 23rd – Not A Lot Going On

Our Japanese friends sure love their PS One classics; five more are here to get your Yen like a greedy Meowth. Somebody enlighten us on these four Godfather II DLC items before we make EA an offer they cannot refuse. Civilization Revolution extends its grasp on the world by offering Japanese DLC to the Japanese people. Look out for that Bayonetta trailer, we surely will.

Plants Vs. Zombies “on as many platforms as possible” – PopCap

Our good friends over at MCV pointed us towards CasualGaming.biz’s recent article outlining the possible invasion (again!) of even more zombies to the PSN. This time, they’ll be fended off by some lively flora however.

Commandos Are So 1988; Enter The Bionic Fireman

Bionic Commandos are not that impressive these days. Sure, they had their shining moment in the 80’s. They even staged a brief comeback in 2008 by rearming themselves and are planning a full 2009 revival by donning dreadlocks and finally daring to jump; but we see through the gimmicks.
Deep down they are all the same commandos we have seen before.
But not this guy. He is the Bionic Fireman.

Resident Evil 5 Versus; The PS3 Attitude Review

Resident Evil 5 Versus; The PS3 Attitude Review

The Resident Evil series is most notable for its single player campaign. In fact, there hasn’t been any true sense of multiplayer until now.

At the games release, gamers could play co-op in either the main story or Mercenaries mode. Now, with the Versus expansion, they can take their anger and frustration out on each other rather than Majini.

But is multiplayer meant to grace the world of Resident Evil or should it stick to the likes of Killzone 2 and Resistance?

Q-Games visionary extraordinaire Dylan Cuthbert has now created a Facebook page with the intention of driving up some early buzz for the next Junk title. Not that he needed to whip us into a frenzy of course. We’ve been rocking back and forth silently for months now waiting to get our hands on some more Junk.
