Gamer Limit Banner

Sony is offering PlayStation Network users free games as a part of the Welcome Back program. Unfortunately, the offer is ending this weekend. Sony’s been pretty generous, offering up to four free games on account of taking so long to re-secure their online service after that “unauthorized intrusion”.

If you want to get your hands on titles like Little Big Planet,  Super Stardust HD, inFamous, Wipeout HD, Modnation Racers, and Killzone: Liberation for free you should turn on that PSP or PS3 before Sunday July 3rd.

Limbo coming to PS3
By: | June 30th, 2011

I’m excited to tell you all that Limbo will soon be coming to the PlayStation 3. The title was previously an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive, being a part of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade 2010. The good word comes from the Korean ratings board, informing us that a multiplatform release is in the works.

When Gamer Limit reviewed the game last year, Sean Carey awarded Limbo a perfect 10 saying that it “it made [him] think, it made [him] feel, and it was incredibly fun to play.”  I, like many PlayStation 3 owners, had to sit back and watch everyone  gush about this game a year ago. This PlayStation Network release is really great news. Hopefully, Playdead’s premiere title will see similar success on PSN as it did on XBLA.


Lots of big news this week! Beyond Good and Evil HD has finally made its way to PSN. PlayStation Plus Members get access to the “free” Uncharted 3 Beta. Duke Nukem Forever is now available in demo form.  And there’s plenty of great PSP deals thanks to the new Dual-Pack deal.

Information on all this and more awaits you after the break.


Killzone 3 receives its third DLC pack, From The Ashes, today. The map pack features two entirely new maps and two “re-imagined Killzone 2 ‘retro’ maps”. The new map pack will be available for a mere $4.99. However, if you’ve yet to splurge on map packs there’s a better deal in town.

Killzone 3‘s new DLC Bundle Pack includes the Retro Pack, the Steel Rain Pack and the From The Ashes Pack for just $9.99. While I’m not one to splurge on new maps for every shooter I play, this sounds like a fantastic deal. I may just have to take Sony and Guerrilla Games up on this offer.


Alien Zombie Megadeath, a new Killzone 3 map pack, three new PSP minis, a host of deals and bundles and more are now available via the PlayStation Network this week. The full details await you after the break.


In the near future, Global Warming is causing natural disasters and widespread disease across the planet. After a comet hits nearby, you awaken to find the world you know has become infected by a mysterious virus that has sent the small town of Silver City into chaos.

As if government troops and horrific monsters weren’t enough to worry about, you soon realize you are among the infected. Your only chance of survival lies in a strange little girl and you’ll need to work together if you want to make it out of Silver City alive.

Sounds right up my alley. I’ll be looking forward to Amy‘s release on PSN later this summer. If you want to check Amy out, a video showcasing her impressively good looks awaits you after the break.

A large part of my childhood was spent in basements and libraries playing the collectable card game Magic: The Gathering with my brother and our friends. Sure it may have been a nerdy pastime, but I can honestly say some of my fondest memories are drawing the right card and just the right time to secure victory.

Thanks to Wizards of the Coast and Stainless Games, I can relive my former glory in the newly released Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, a follow up to 2009′s Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers. Read more… »

Have you heard of WayForward Technologies? Well, if you’re a fan of Nintendo consoles the answer is…well actually still probably no. They have an unfortunate track record of making awesome games that just don’t seem to sell. They’re the guys behind awesome games like Contra 4, the Shantae series, Lit, and (my personal favourite) A Boy and His Blob.

BloodRayne: Betrayal mark’s WayForward’s first entry on the high definition consoles. So now that WayForward are on your system of choice, with an established IP to boot, you’d better not ignore this one.


To help promote Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine‘s impending September 6th release date, THQ is releasing Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, a third-person action shooter, on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. The title is due out this summer and is meant to whet your palette and work up an appetite for the main event. Gamer Limit had an opportunity to sit down with THQ and check out both titles.

Hit the jump for some hands-on impressions of Kill Team.

Sony welcomes you back
By: | June 4th, 2011

Yesterday, Sony released the Welcome Back program. Because the PlayStation Network was down for so long, Sony would like to apologize and offer users free games and additional content. Sony is offering PlayStation Network users the opportunity to download two titles for their PSP and/or PS3 (for a total of free 4 games).

Additionally, Sony is offering a free 30 day subscription to the PlayStation Network Plus service, while current PSN Plus members will receive a 60 day extension of their membership. For the full list of free games you can nab with the Welcome Back package hit the jump.


It takes more than a look at the title for most to recognize Hard Corps: Uprising is actually part of the venerable Contra series.  The original Hard Corps a Sega Genesis game that was well-received but never made it to the level of greatness that its predecessors on the NES or even Contra III on the Super Nintendo did.  Like an increasing number of retro franchises Xbox Live and PlayStation Network have given Hard Corps a platform for a follow-up game and thus Hard Corps: Uprising was born.

Producer Kenji Yamamoto said that the intent was to make Hard Corps into a brand new franchise.  Does Uprising launch this new series into the stars or is it a failure to launch?  Hit the jump to find out.


Today table-top games giant Wizards of the Coast released some new details about the up coming sequel Magic: The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012. Slated to arrive on June 15 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, Duels 2012 features a whole slew of improvements over the previous iteration. These changes include:

  • Improved Deck Editing
  • Enhanced Co-Op Game Play
  • All New Multiplayer Game Mode “Archenemy”
  • New Planeswalker Opponents
  • New Decks and Puzzle Challenges
  • Integration between the digital and paper product offering – Duels players get the first look at cards from the upcoming Magic 2012 Core Set releasing July 15, 2011

It is also said that Duels 2012 will feature “strategic single player campaign game scenarios” as well as “competitive play, robust community features and un-lockable content.” Read more… »
