Is BlazBlue’s Valkenhayn DLC worth $8?

A couple of months ago, BlazBlue:CS received its first downloadable character in the form of Makoto. She’s an awesome character to play as and is definitely worth the price. At the end of September, BlazBlue’s second downloadable fighter, Valkenhayn, was released on the PSN. Unsurprisingly, the DLC is once again priced at $7.99.

Don’t cry just yet. This butler is easily one of the most interesting characters in the game.

North American PS Store Update for October 26th – Zombies and the Forsaken Dragon Ball

This week has quite a bit of content. For downloadable games there’s Blacklight: Tango Down and Superstars V8 Racing, which is nice. It took awhile for Blacklight to hit the PSN for some reason though.

You’ll definitely want to check out the demo for Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom. This game is made by the developers of Folklore and it’s looking quite beautiful. If that’s not enough for you, there’s a demo for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, Blacklight, and TV Superstars.

The highlight is definitely the undead DLC for Red Dead Redemption. If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you can even purchase it at a reduced price. Not bad! The Fan Axxess pack for Smackdown vs Raw 2011 is now available and this pre-purchases any DLC coming to the game in the future. It’s an interesting idea by THQ, let’s see if it works out in the end. Move support for High Velocity Bowling is now available to all PSN users and it’s still free. If you have a PS Move you’ll probably want to try that out.

If you’re a fan of Super Street Fighter IV, you’ll be happy to know that the first pack of new costumes have been released. Enjoy!

The Brink Diaries; ‘We view Brink as having the opportunity to convert single-player gamers into online’ gamers

In last week’s Brink diary, Richard Ham explained how Splash Damage are catering for its hardcore audience, and, in another diary, he explained how they are trying to bridge the gap between single-player and multi-player. In theory, this shouldn’t work because a single-player game is a completely different experience from that of a multi-player game; they each require different skills. In addition to this, the multi-player arena is an intense and often hostile environment, so it’s not a great place to learn how to play properly.
