North American PS Store Update For April 22nd – So Good!

Another great week for the PSN in North America.

The highlights of the week are definitely Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition and After Burner Climax. Want more? You got it! Puzzle Chronicles and Hyperballoid HD are now available as well. Sadly there are no demos for any of these games. Boo!

The lone demo this week is for Lost Planet 2. This is the multiplayer TDM demo that was only downloadable if you had a voucher. Don’t forget that by downloading the demo you are participating in Capcom’s “Kill Big for Charity” program. Even if you have no interest in Lost Planet 2 you might as well help a good cause.

On the add-on side of things there’s content for Rock Band and the Rock Band Network, Buzz!, Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing, and Uncharted 2.

Enjoy!

Paul W.S. Anderson, the Hollywood director best known for the atrocious Resident Evil film adaptations (among others), is planning to develop games in the future. After 15 years talking to developers, Anderson feels he has a “very good appreciation” for what makes a good game.

His first game? That would be Buck Rogers.

Big VidZone update released, adds ‘VidZone TV’

VidZone, the European music video streaming service for the PS3, has been updated today and it packs in some great improvements.

The biggest addition is what they call VidZone TV. Sometimes you just can’t make your mind up on what you want to listen to, and so this is where this feature comes in very handy.

European PS Store Update For 22nd April – This week is pretty awesome

The PS Store updates have been on a role lately!

The Lost Planet 2 Multiplayer demo is now available to everyone without a voucher. By downloading this demo you will be participating in Capcom’s “Kill Big for Charity” program. Nothing beats playing videos games for a good cause.

The highlight this week is definitely After Burner Climax. This game just looks incredible. If After Burner isn’t enough for you there’s also Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West and… Hamsterball Unleashed…

There’s a healthy amount of DLC for various games, including Magic Orbz, Uncharted 2, Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing. As always, there’s tons of content for Rock Band and you’ll also find user generated tracks from the Rock Band Network.

We’re going to ignore the latest PSone “Classic” and pretend it never existed. Enjoy!

Why don’t movie tie-ins work?

Why don’t movie tie-ins work?

It’s common knowledge that movie tie-ins come under much more scrutiny and criticism than any other type of game. Most would argue (perhaps justifiably) that this is thoroughly deserved, and that they can never replace such blockbuster titles as Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and God of War III. On this front I would have to agree, but why exactly is this the case?

Transformers: War for Cybertron is the real deal

Transformers: War for Cybertron is the real deal

The Transformer concept is one that should be ideal for creating a fantastic video game. Giant robots smacking seven bells out of each other, whilst morphing into vehicles – how could it possibly go wrong?

Well it has gone wrong in the past, several times in fact – but High Moon Studios upcoming ‘Transformers: War for Cybertron’ looks set to put all the bad stuff behind it.

Let’s roll out!
