With PAX East behind us and GDC in full swing, it is understandable that Capcom be on a tear of announcements and new content. With a little hop from Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2, over DuckTales Remastered, and back into the realm of Umbrella Corp, they deliver unto us a brand new gameplay video for the Resident Evil Revelations console and PC port.

Rachel, the blonde, squirrely-voiced Federal Agent with luscious locks ever covering her eyes, gets all the attention as she shows off her skills in Raid Mode. A climactic and quasi metaphysical video it is, as she winds up coming face to face with … well, you’d just have to see.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault out on November 27th!

Do you have a Lombax-shaped hole in your life? Did the recent Ratchet & Clank Collection only make your longing for dry-humored robots even worse? Good news everyone! You can play Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault on November 27th.

Better still, the game is going to be available for download on PSN and as a retail copy. According to the post on the PlayStation Blog, “Both the download and retail versions support cross-buy as well, so your purchase gets you both the game on PS3 and a digital copy for PlayStation Vita.” Also Full Frontal Assault  is going to be bigger than Quest for Booty. It’ll set you back $19.99 when it comes out.

The critically and commercially acclaimed The Walking Dead games, developed by adventure veteran Telltale Games, previously available on XBLA, PSN, and PC, is getting a disc based version on December 4th.

So far, we have absolutely no details on the fourth and fifth episode, but I personally think this release will coincide with the delivery of the fifth and final episode of the collection. There’s no word on the pricing yet, but you can pick up each episode for $5 currently.

If the disc is going to retail for more than $25, hopefully it’ll come with some extras!

It’s a great week to be a PS+ member, as there are some pretty nifty deals this week. For starters, Double Dragon Neon, a brand new game, is free. If you’re a non-+ member you can also try the demo in lieu of the deal.

If you can’t fit enough beat ‘em ups in your life, you can also pick up the fairly awesome Scott Pilgrim game as well. If you’re really impatient, Jet Set Radio HD is yours a week early (in comparison to 360 and regular PSN folk) at a discounted price of $8.99.

Last, but not least, you can nab Max Payne 3 digitally for $40.49 until the 18th of this month. Make sure and do some comparison shopping before you buy it, but $40 isn’t bad. Out of all these, I heavily recommend Jet Set Radio HD, so long as you have an open mind towards quirky, cartoony games — it won’t let you down.

Review: Retro/Grade
By: | August 27th, 2012

A great deal has changed for the rhythm genre over the past decade. After experiencing a period of outrageous boom, things have been moving rather decidedly in the opposite direction for the past few years. A precipitous drop-off occurred in 2009, when the market reached the point of saturation, things have plodded along since but few releases have managed to capture community’s imagination, much less steal Guitar Hero‘s crown.

From that seemingly exhausted soil, however, emerges a PlayStation Network exclusive that is certain to provide a breath of fresh air for a genre that has become a tad stagnant. So, dust off those plastic guitars and read on to find out more Retro/Grade, a game that blurs the lines between music games and shmups to provide one of the standout PSN releases of the summer.

Rainbow Moon screenshot

Sidequest Studios will be bringing their RPG Rainbow Moon to the PlayStation Network on July 10th of this year. After two years in development, you’ll be able to get your hands on the game for $14.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers will get an extra 20% off, which drops the price down to $11.99.

I like strategy RPGs, and Rainbow Moon looks like it has some similarities to titles like Final Fantasy Tactics. Is anybody else interested in this?

Sine Mora coming to PS3
By: | June 21st, 2012

Sine Mora is coming to PS3 "soon"

Sine Mora is a great game; I think we can all agree on that. That’s why it was such a surprise when it was announced that previously XBLA-exclusive game was coming to the PS Vita. Now, that announcement is joined by this one: Sine Mora is coming to PSN too.

With the game’s XBLA exclusivity period up, there’s nothing keeping the Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality co-developed game from gracing the PS3 with it’s “dieselpunk shoot ‘em up” charms. The PS3 version does not have a release date other than a vague “soon.”

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Capitalizing on all the E3 hype, Valve announced the release date for the upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. CS: GO will launch simultaneously on XBLA, PSN, PC, and Mac on August 21, 2012.

The original Counter-Stike came out almost 13 years ago, and this new release will feature new maps, characters, and weapons. It will also have updated versions of classic maps like “de_dust.” CS: GO will cost around $15 or 1600 Microsoft Monoply Money Dollar Points.

Review: Awesomenauts

Awesomenauts Review

Developer Ronimo Games proved with Swords & Soldiers that they’re adept at merging real-time strategy gameplay with a two-dimensional world. But how did they do marrying MOBA mechanics with frantic side-scrolling action? The following should give you a hint:

When you start playing a game that features a giant robot, a space cowboy, a monkey with a jetpack, and the word “awesome” is mentioned well over five times within the intro movie, you know you’re in for something out of the ordinary. Welcome to the world of Awesomenauts.

PixelJunk fans, unite! As of yesterday, PJ Racer, PJ Monsters, PJ Eden, and PJ Shooter are all on sale for $1 on the PSN. If I had to choose one game for you to buy out of the lot, I’d easily say Monsters, but you can’t really go wrong with any of them (particularly Eden, which I think is extremely overlooked).

In addition to their classic line, two of their newer games are on sale as well: PJ Shooter 2 and PJ Sidescroller are $5. All of this lasts until May 18th, when their brand new PixelJunk 4am launches. This sale doesn’t personally effect me, as I already have all of their games. They’re just that good!

Awesomenauts - Lonestar

Yesterday we reported that DTP Entertainment AG was filing for insolvency, placing Ronimo Games’ Awesomenauts in potential jeopardy. Fear not! Today, despite the publisher’s financial situation, Ronimo Games announced that Awesomenauts will launch as planned on PSN and XBLA.

Tomorrow the game will be available for free for PlayStation Plus subscribers while everyone else will have to wait until Wednesday, May 2nd. Awesomenauts is a 2D MOBA-style game that has an “80s cartoon” aesthetic. It’s a May miracle!
