This week, instead of a new game tommorow, Xbox Live gamers are greeted with a refreshingly cheap download content package. For only 160 Microsoft Points ($2.00 US), you can buy this new add-on, with enough content to keep you playing this gem for quite some time. Will this content make up for the fact that it took developer The Behemoth 6 months to come out with a patch that fixed game breaking, data deleting glitches? Only time will tell, but at the moment Castle Crashers is sitting up top of Microsoft’s throne as the #1 played Live Arcade game.

Well, up until now, I had not even heard of Merchants of Brooklyn, so I checked out the latest gameplay video from CES, and as I said, it looks interesting to say the least. Over on their official website, you can read more about this FPS from Paleo Entertainment, and did I mention it is powered by the Crytek Engine? That is the very same engine that powered the PC hit, Crysis, which I must say, has broken barriers when it came to graphics in videogames.



It’s almost mind blowing that the DS version of GTA could hold 2 hours of cut scenes but apparently so, according to the BBFC.

So those of you PS3 owners who bought Socom Confrontation on release and never played it again, get ready! The 1.30 patch is out and ready for install.
