FirstPlay Thursday – Week 9

Submitted by on Thursday, 3 June 2010No Comment

firstplaylogo e1266182902404 FirstPlay Thursday   Week 9FirstPlay has been with us for a few months now and it’s really starting to get into its stride, with decent content appearing every week. But what can you find in this week’s episode?

In Episode 9 of FirstPlay, you’ll be on a similarly numbered cloud when you discover that it includes the awesome minis game Age of Zombies, worth £3.99. In our opinion it’s worth getting this episode just for that game, but if killing zombies isn’t your thing (seriously?) then there are also better-late-than-never reviews of Red Dead Redemption and ModNation Racers, a preview of Demon’s Souls (thank you Namco Bandai!), and the usual slew of other videos and screenshots for your viewing pleasure.

As always, this episode can be individually purchased for 99p, or you can save some money by taking out a 90-day subscription for £8.99.
