Gamer Limit Review: Shank
By: | August 29th, 2010

When I was younger, games like Double Dragon were the reason I fell in love with games. Challenging, strategic games with a combat system that was altogether enjoyable – at the time. Shank attempts to capture the same enjoyment that side-scrolling beat-’em-ups in the past provided.

However, games have evolved quite a bit since the 8-bit era. The many cheap, shallow game design issues found in games of the past have evolved into something much more refreshing. The question is, does Shank fall right back into these past issues? Read more… »

A marked improvement on some recent summer offerings in the PSN Store : among this week’s highlights include a playable demo of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, the release of Pixel Junk Racers: 2nd Lap, and fresh DLC for Mafia II and Naughty Bear.

The timeless MotorStorm: Pacific Rift also enters the third dimension in a stripped down version entitled MotorStorm 3D Rift for those few souls that own one of those newfangled 3D TVs by having more money than sense.

The rest of this week’s PSN store update can be read in full after the break.


Guess what!? You’ll never believe it! Finally, a week that is actually worthy of our praises.

This week you can enjoy Shank, PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap, Press Your Luck, and more! You can even extend your PlayStation 3 warranty if you wish. Also, a couple of goodies for you PlayStation Plus subscribers. So hit the jump for more on this week’s update.


Man, remember back in the day when Ron Gilbert and Hothead Games released that game DeathSpank? If my foggy memory of those long-long-ago times serves me right, we here at Gamer Limit even reviewed the game. Boy, those sure were the days, but they’re long forgotten now. The world has moved on in the, you know, month since all that happened.

But do not despair! Hothead Games is bringing it all back! DeathSpank, the long-forgotten hero, is making a triumphant return just when we all had forgotten completely about him!

All right, now that the “boy this sure is happening soon” joke has been beat like a dead unicorn, we can focus on the goods: a DeathSpank sequel, entitled DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, is coming on September 21st for PSN and September 22nd for XBLA. Did I mention how ridiculously soon this is happening?


Hello there again PS3 user. As with most PlayStation Store updates this summer, disappointment is once again inevitable. Honestly, demos are the most interesting part of this week.

The three demos offered this week are Joe Danger, NHL 11, and Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2. Also, for you PS+ users, you get nothing. Enjoy!. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.


A few weeks ago I mentioned that THQ was working on a downloadable XBLA and PSN game set in the Red Faction universe. Today, during a GDC panel, THQ Digital Warrington creative director Don Whiteford revealed this downloadable title when he announced that his studio’s first game will be Red Faction: Battlegrounds.

Said to be a “topdown car, mech and rover combat title,” Battlegrounds will feature local multiplayer, with up to “four players on the same screen.” As with all good tie-in games, Battlegrounds will allow gamers to unlock “unique elements” for the next upcoming installment in the Red Faction series; Red Faction: Armageddon.

Another Wednesday is upon us which of course means the latest PSN Store update is ready and waiting. While there isn’t a truckload of must have content, this week’s standouts are nice and clear-cut: there’s the multiplayer Red Dead Redemption and a sterling playable demo for Mafia II, due out later this month.

Elsewhere, PlayStation Plus gets a last minute update with Pixel Racers 2nd Lap, a few new minis for sale and the usual batch of DLC for a certain pair of overworn music games.

A full list of this week’s PSN Store update awaits you after the jump.


PlayStation Store update for the United States of America has arrived this week. And, another sad day it is as there isn’t much to speak of. Maybe next week will be better to us PS3/PSP owners?

Anyhow, the most notable release this week is Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game which is available for $9.99. Other than that, a couple of addons, music, and free stuff for PSN+ subscribers. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.


This week’s PSN update is sadly rather slim on notable releases, with only a handful of worthy downloads on offer. There’s a few new scraps of DLC to be had for Bioshock 2,  ModNation Racers and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, but the highlight for some will undoubtedly be the inclusion of the PSOne fighting classic Tekken 2.

Bizarrely, there is also a playable demo of Modern Warfare 2. Because nobody bought that game when it was released some nine months ago.

The remainder of this week’s Store update can be found after the break.


Not too much of an update this week. And no PS Plus content to boot. Fret not though, for there is a Summer Sale!

I strongly recommend taking advantage of at least one game offered in the Summer Sale. If you had to choose one, definitely go with PixelJunk Shooter. It is easily one of my favorite PSN games. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.


For those of you willing to tear yourselves away from Starcraft 2 today, you will find the PlayStation Store update to be, yet again, underwhelming. Unless of course you are a football fan or a PS+ user. To the former, I applaud you. To the latter, there are some that question your taste (just so you know).

This week there is my personal favorite: Madden NFL 11 demo. For those PS+ users, you can enjoy Critter Crunch, FREE! Last and certainly least, Kane and Lynch 2 demo is available – just in case you feel like torturing yourself. Anyhow, hit the jump for the full list. Read more… »

This week on PSN: the Kane and Lynch 2 demo finally makes its way onto the store for those who didn’t take the plunge and splash out on a subscription for PlayStation Plus.

Continuing with the theme of dastardly duos, the latest chapter in Sam and Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Episode is now available and fighting fans are in for a treat in terms of special offers, with Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, Mortal Combat 2 and Street Fighter IV DLC all up for grabs at a discounted rate.

A full listing of this week’s PSN Store update can be read in full after the break.
