Critter Crunch

Critter Crunch is one of the most adorable games you will ever discover; yet below it’s seemingly simple and cute gameplay lies a deeply complex and challenging puzzle game that will take you hours, or even days to master. The title revolves around the life of Biggs, a weirdly cute jungle creature that is dedicated to feeding his children.

If only it was that simple.

If you have yet to take a quick look at October 22′s PSN Store update, Trine is currently available for purchase in North America. Earlier this year, when we had a look at the fiendishly handsome title, we found the game to be…well, fiendishly handsome.

Explode inside for the press release. Read more… »

US PSN Store

Half of the promised Ratchet and Clank demo is out this week in the form of a playable Clank level, although what happened to the Ratchet level is currently unknown. Trine has also finally made it to the US this week after months of problems and delays; so be sure to pick it up if you haven’t had a chance to play it yet.

On the PSP side, a host of awesome titles hit the store today, including two Grand Theft Auto games and the innovative Half-minute Hero. Read on to see the full list!

To say the least, this week’s update is rather devoid of fresh content. For PS3 owners, there is just one playable demo of NBA 2K10 along with the usual wealth of music orientated downloadable content, including an extensive Queen track pack for Rock Band. On the other hand, PSP players will be graced with GTA: Chinatown Wars this Friday and who could live without Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show?

There is just one question on my mind – where is our promised playable demo of Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time?

After 15 long years, Konami has decided to remake the Sega Mega Drive classic Rocket Knight for the Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Steam. Originally released in 1993, this remake will feature updated graphics (seen above), although no other updates have been specified just yet.

At this point in time however, you might be asking yourself what is Rocket Knight about exactly?

There are certain types of games that strut with a swagger, backing every step up with substance, variety and finesse. Then there are those ‘other’ games that march, chins held up high, but lack the confidence to back up their gaudy walk. They’re called one-trick, all hype, no show ponies.  

Mushroom Wars, a cartoony real-time strategy (RTS) title released on the PlayStation Network (PSN), walks a flashy line. While it ostensibly is a game based on strategy, there’s something about Mushroom Wars that makes it more brawn than brains. It’s not spectacular, but that’s not the question. The question is that for the $9.99 price it’s pitching, does it offer enough of a stride? Read more… »

Calling All Cars

Who here remembers Calling All Cars? This gem of a game was an absolute riot to play on the PS3 at the time, with its unique automotive take on capture the flag providing hours of heated gameplay. Fond memories of shouting “go for the paddy wagon!” in an appalling Irish accent were frequently had.

Unfortunately, much to my surprise hardly anyone bought the game on PSN, or at least didn’t venture online as every time I attempted to join a game the servers were disappointingly desolate. As a result, the servers are to be taken offline from January 14 2010, which is a crying shame.

Of course, players will still be able to take part in local multiplayer matches, but it’s still disheartening to see David Jaffe’s masterpiece be the first PSN title to be closed down.

US PSN Store

A host of interesting new games have popped up on the PSN store today, including the tactical real time strategy game Mushroom Wars, which is similar in style to Pixeljunk Monsters, and .detuned, a rather odd application that allows people to create dynamic visuals that go in time to their favourite music.

Of course, if you’re playing Uncharted 2 like the rest of us, you probably won’t have time to purchase any of these games just yet. Keep on reading for the full list.

Let’s be honest, with the release of Uncharted 2 imminent this week, most of you probably won’t be interested in this week’s store update. But for those of you who are, the likes of Mushroom Wars and Uno awaits you. You lucky people!

You can read up on this week’s delights after the break.

Not only that, but these PSN cards are also packaged in a blu-ray case, so you essentially get a free case to boot!

Sony Bluetooth Headset

It appears that a Naughty Dog employee might have let slip that the next PS3 firmware update will contain the long awaited cross-game voice chat functionality.  This information comes from a Playstation.com forum post in which a user with a “Naughty Dog Dev” stamp has been quoted saying “the next PS3 firmware update is going to allow cross game chat.”

Of all the features that Sony has yet to implement on the PS3, this is probably the most requested.  The fact they haven’t added it to the system has been a point of contention amongst many PS3 and Xbox 360 fanboys.  I myself think this is the one hurdle the Playstation Network has left to leap before it can be considered on par with Xbox Live.

Do you think the PS3 needs cross-game voice chat?
