North American PS Store Update – February 19th (Noby Noby Whaa? Edition)
Not even its creator can explain it; he only wants you to play it. At $4.99 how can you say no Noby Noby Boy? Except for the first two letters in ‘noby’; we can’t.

Speaking of demos, the foul mouthed Afro Samurai has a demo for you (I wonder if it was toned down for the demo). The legends are in Paradise; go get your favorite one or all four (you know you want to). Your Guitar Rock Hero Band DLC is here despite someone forgetting to tell you it was coming (sorry). Get yours while they last, full details after the break.
