New Year, New Games: Top 10 PS3 Games to Look Out for in 2011

2010 has come and gone. I’ve spent the last week off from work and in a haze of diet, exercise, and WoW: Cataclysm. I did have the time to check out a great new PSN game, EAT THEM, which is vaguely reminiscent of SNK’s King of Monsters, but focusing on the destruction rather than battling […]

PSN Tuesday – August 24, Shank

The traditionally slow summer season has been anything but this year, with most weeks bringing forth an excellent downloadable game either on the PS3 or the 360. This week bring the highly anticipated Shank, a 2D sidescrolling brawler from Klei Entertainment. While there are a number of excellent choices in this genre even just in […]

PSN Tuesday – August 17, Sackneto Was Right

Please excuse the lateness, here’s what has graced the Playstation Network today. Flight simulators seem to be in fashion this week, with the release of Top Gun and a demo for Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2. Top Gun is a downloadable adaptation of the film, focusing on arcade-style air combat. The game contains single player missions […]

PS3 Throws Down at Köln Gamescom

Today saw huge announcements from a number of companies at Gamescom in Köln, Germany. On the Playstation side of things, there were five new trailers for PS3 exclusives accompanying the long-awaited announcement of Mass Effect 2 for the PS3. Having played both Mass Effect games on the PC, I really can’t recommend the series highly enough. […]

PSN Tuesday – August 10, Scott Pilgrim vs My Free Time

Some football something or other came out today. I couldn’t care less. I’m currently listening to the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack while watching Scott Pilgrim the Game download. Available now for $9.99, Scott Pilgrim is a River City Ransom-style 2D sidescrolling brawler. With 4-player local co-op allowing you to play as Scott, Ramona, Kim, or Steven, the only negative that […]

PSN Tuesday – August 3, Launch a Sodding Cow

So this is what happens when I get excited for something. Instead of the big monthly updates to Playstation Plus content that were promised, Sony has switched to a bi-weekly system. I can’t help but feel like they’re caving in to people who were crying for more Plus content every week because they don’t understand […]

PSN Tuesday – July 27, Wings of Liberty

Starcraft 2 doesn’t have anything to do with the PSN, but that doesn’t change the fact that ignoring Blizzard’s newest game is doing yourself a disservice. From the moment the opening cinematic starts, this game is epic. I’ve been playing since the first day of Beta testing, and I tore into my Collector’s Edition the […]

PSN Tuesday – July 20, Kane and Lynch and Thor

Calling today a slow day on the PSN is a bit of an understatement. There are only a few noteworthy releases, and one of them is Plus-exclusive for the time being. The exclusive in question is the demo for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, sequel to a game that was more famous for controversial […]

PSN Tuesday – July 13, DEATHSPANK

It’s a strange week on the Platstation Network. My never having played a non-soccer, non-NBA Jam sports game leaves me completely baffled when reading over the list of TWENTY new downloadable add-ons for NCAA Football 11. Having never finished Cross Edge, I couldn’t justify purchasing Trinity Universe, and so they may as well be speaking […]

PSN Tuesday – July 6, Persona 3 Portable and the rest of it

Welcome to July, folks. Go buy Persona 3 Portable. I’m not pulling any punches today, and I’m completely serious when I say that Persona 3 is one of my favorite games of all time. It’s a brilliant JRPG, combining a highly enjoyable social sim with a great dungeon crawl. I’d be playing it myself now, […]
