North American PS Store Update For August 3rd – Groovy deals and a worm named Jim

Submitted by on Tuesday, 3 August 2010One Comment

US PSN 21 e1271376053310 North American PS Store Update For August 3rd   Groovy deals and a worm named JimHaggar approves of this update! RAWR!
*piledrives a car*

Tons of deals this week. We already mentioned the contents of the Summer Sale but there’s even more! Most notably, Final Fight: Double Impact is 50% off. There is nothing more satisfying than piledriving your way through countless waves of thugs as you try to save your daughter from a dude in a wheel chair. Yeah!

PS3 owners finally gets their hands on Earthworm Jim HD today.  It’ll be interesting to see how new gamers react to the very oldschool design. Gameloft didn’t make any changes to the gameplay at all. All the problems that existed then are still an issue now. There is a trial  so let us know what you thought of it.

Lots of DLC this week from all the usual suspects. The 3rd Marvel pack for LBP is out. Now you can dress your sackboy up as Wolverine and slice your way to happiness. Trine has a new downloadable level and it’ll only cost you a dollar. Not bad, although it was free for PC owners. Perhaps the most bitter DLC of the bunch comes from Aksys Games. Squirrel girl Makoto is now available, which is nice, but she’s $8. There’s also a bunch of other pointless DLC for the game that will cost you quite a penny. Colors, voices? Really? Why would someone buy that? Just stick with the Squirrel and you’ll be fine.
