European PS Store Update for March 9 – Yet another avalanche of avatars

This week the cupboards are rather bare. No new games to speak of aside from the trial and unlock for Back to the Future: The Game.

If you’ve noticed that you and your current avatar have grown apart over time and the mere sight of Crash Bandicoot’s face evokes a nauseous feeling, you are in luck my friend. Brand spanking new avatars featuring Killzone 3, Grand Theft Auto IV and Red Dead Redemption are now available. A perfect rebound.

As per usual there is a hefty amount of add-on content hitting the store. Perhaps you will unearth something that strikes your fancy. Happy hunting.

Fight the giant insect invasion in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

What if a game excels in the gameplay department but is lacking in practically all other aspects? Could the game still be great despite it’s obvious flaws? Maybe you could even learn to love it for it’s shortcomings. Those of you that played Earth Defense Force 2017 know exactly what we’re talking about.

Fans of the cult classic were thrilled to see that a sequel was in production. Springing forth from GDC was news of the new ‘survival’ mode and a host of trailers and screenshots. Enjoy.

European PS Store Update for March 2 – Fast cars and avatars

PixelJunk Monsters 2 rules the update this week but what the avatars lack in content they make up for in sheer numbers.

Not to be outdone by the swarm of avatars is a healthy batch of add-on content. The Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack is sure to be the top download of the week but do not look past Dead Space 2 – Severed and the Dragon Age 2 downloads.

All told it looks like a good week. Take a look and download away.

Readers meet Catherine, Catherine these are the readers

Once in a while a game is made that bucks the notion of a proper genre. Catherine definitely lives in the murky realm of the indescribable.

Really this game has to be seen to understand so have a look for yourself and appreciate the loss for words (expletives notwithstanding).

Crysis 2 to feature invisibility – ninja vanish!

Quick question: invisibility or flight? Take some time to mull it over.

Hopefully you chose invisibility (let’s be smart about this jet packs already exist) because by the look of this trailer you’ll be able to achieve just that in Crysis 2.

Battlefield 3 gameplay trailer

Recently we were given a brief glimpse at Battlefield 3 via a short trailer. In that trailer we saw a lot of tanks, helicopters and text but unfortunately no gameplay.

In the latest trailer we see flickers of gameplay intertwined with a shaky video feed and the same rather cinematic presentation featured in the previous trailer. Smash cuts abound.

New Dead Space 2 DLC coming right at you!

We can’t help but notice that you finished all of your Dead Space 2. Nice work but there’s more to do on the Sprawl.

We’ve got all the details on the add-on content. Check it out.

European PS Store Update for February 23 – Try before you buy

This week is all about demos and add-on content. Yes there are more minis on sale this week (the same from last week) but you saw that coming.

Highlights this week include demos for Dragon Age 2 and Yakuza4. If you’re looking for add-on content, Fallout: New Vegas – Dead Money is hitting the store to go with brand new downloads for Killzone 3 and Need for Speed.

North American PS Store Update for February 22 – Vote for your future dollars

Normally as consumers our only vehicle with which to voice our opinions with any sort of weight is with our dollars. How can Activision charge $15 for a pack of broken maps? Because it was downloaded about 2.5 million times in the first week.

This week however we get the chance to actually vote for our favorite games featured on PSN in the last year. Winners will be determined in the following categories: exclusives, PS3 games, PSP games, and minis. Said winners will then go on sale following the March 1 deadline (although if you bought it, loved it, and then voted for it what good would a sale be?). Make sure you get to the store and cast your vote.

Get your RAGE on

Take a trip if you will to the Wasteland. A post-apocalyptic world characterized by lawlessness and abject violence. As gamers this is familiar world to an extent.

What we haven’t seen is id Software’s take on the idea. The word ‘famed’ hardly seems to encapsulate the studio that created the first-person shooter. Derivative isn’t exactly their style. Check out their newest trailer and screenshots.
