Developer Giant Sparrow’s arty paint-throwing title is coming exclusively to PSN on 24 October 2012 in Europe, so we assume North America gets it a day earlier. But better yet, if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you get it an entire week earlier!
Despite the title of the game, it actually will be finished when it goes up on the PlayStation store and you won’t need to spend extra to unlock missing parts, etc.
Escape Plan, an artistic puzzler on the Vita, has received another bunch of DLC as well as a patch – 1.04 – which allows you to use the handhelds buttons rather than the touch controls.

Isometric shooters are easily found on PSN and you may be thinking, “do we really need another top-down shooter?” and well, the answer is yes.

Similar to the debut CGI trailer for the original Dead Island, this clip focusing on a couple as they make their last stand against a group of incoming zombies.

Read on to see what is included, stranger…

Square-Enix have announced the latest installment in the Final Fantasy XIII saga dubbed Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Judging by the title, we assume we’re going to play as a Chocobo but it’s all up in the air, really.

Will he be able to hold his own against the impressive cast or will he forever lose due to Rose calling him at inopportune times?
Don’t you hate it when you call in a care package and all that is to be found inside is banana skins, underwear and, well, a really cool flying drone that you take control of and when spotted, you say, “this is not the droid you are looking for” and escape?
With the Care Package edition of Black Ops II coming, you can control your own drone but the most you’ll probably do with it is frighten somebody on the toilet.
