Before you get your hopes up: no, this is not the long awaited console port of the indie classic, Spelunky. Spelunker HD is a brand new remake of the Brøderbund Atari/NES classic.

In fact, as it was released in 1983, Spelunker was one of the first “cave exploration” titles, and helped pave the way for many modern cave crawling classics. But does the PSN HD remake live up to the original’s name? Read on to find out. Read more… »

You must have played Flight Control on your iDevice right?  Sure you have, it just might not have been the original Flight Control by Firemint.  Even if you’re devoid of an Apple product you will have most likely played something similar on a score of flash based games sites.

The thing that made Firemint’s version of this formula compelling was the clean presentation and well balanced gameplay approach.  Has this made the transition to the PS3?  More importantly, does the Move controller bork it all up? Hit the jump to find out! Read more… »

It’s that time of year again when most gamers are spending their hard-earned cash on Christmas presents rather than full-priced titles. But while you may not be able to splurge on all the latest AAA releases this month, at least you can rest easy in the knowledge that there are plenty of Mini and indie games out there to while away the time.

Mediatonic has already staked its claim on the market with the surprisingly enjoyable Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess, and they are up to their old tricks again with the new PSN Mini release, Who’s That Flying?!

Video games themed around holidays like Christmas or Halloween aren’t nearly as prevalent as books or films.  There’s definitely potential in the idea but game makers haven’t really touched upon it yet.  Double Fine Productions decided to explore this new territory for games to bring us Costume Quest.  Double Fine’s creativity shines through in this endearing XBLA/PSN release to deliver a memorable experience.

Indie games are coming in thick and fast on the 360, and with so many “Free MS Points” offers being peddled by various publishing firms, gamers are able to take advantage of titles they may never have noticed before.

Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess may not be a shoe-in for GOTY, but at just 240 MS Points, this addictive little title is sure to entertain you for a couple of hours.

Poor old Sonic. Two decades ago he was a leading mascot figure on the face of every lunch box, defining SEGA and spawning one of the greatest rivalries in the industry. Since then, teary-eyed fans have watched as their beloved blue hedgehog became a shadow of his former self in the transition to 3D, resulting in a seemingly endless supply of dismal games that didn’t do the license justice.

It’s only taken them 16 years too long, but SEGA has finally seen sense and are gladly dismissing that anything after the original Sonic trilogy ever existed. Enter Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, a high definition revamp of the classic 2D formula that aims to finally redeem the faltering franchise. Is this the game that Sonic fans have been patiently yearning for?

The latest trailer for EA’s upcoming DLC expansion Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam not only contains high-octane gameplay footage of the game in action, but also reveals the pricing details.

According to the trailer, Vietnam will retail for $14.99 /1200 MS Points, which doesn’t sound too dissimilar to last year’s Battlefield: 1943. In a similar vein, the DLC will include four new maps along with four new vehicles and 15 weapons that compliment the new era.

A precise release date has yet to be disclosed however, as the trailer still points to a winter 2010 date for deployment.

A mammoth update this week, thanks largely to the arrival of a spikey blue hedgehog. Yes that’s right, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 is now available to download and has already been touted as a belated return to form.

Elsewhere, there’s an enticing playable demo of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II and a trial and unlock for Dead Space Ignition to complete the sci-fi theme, along with new DLC for WRC, Split/Second and Moto GP for racing fanatics.

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

After years and years of wishing, my dream is finally coming true. Yesterday at a Marvel presentation at Comic-Con, Konami announced that its classic arcade beat ‘em up X-Men is coming to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Store.

Originally released in 1992, X-Men allowed gamers to take control of their favorite mutants (Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Dazzler) as they beat their way through a seemingly endless supply of sententials. Read more… »


It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the stunted ‘series’, so it will be unsurprising that I am delighted Ryo Hazuki will once again be donning his iconic tan jacket in a brand new Shenmue title. Today, Sega Japan marked the end of the abandonment of the series by announcing what its publicity machine is already hyping as the “third instalment” of the series.

Don’t expect a continuation of the story, however, as Shenmue Town is, at present, going to be exclusive to mobile phones via Yahoo’s MobageTown mobile social network. Oh, and it’s currently only planned for a Japanese release. Sorry.

A rather tepid shower of offerings this week on PSN: Ferrari: The Race Experience is the only new PSN game and the playable demos are equally barren with just DJ Hero 2 on offer.

Elsewhere, there are at least a slew of tempting special offers, including a deduction on the ridiculously priced Modern Warfare 2 DLC and a new batch of PlayStation Plus content is also available to subscribers for this month.

Hit the jump for a full list of this week’s updates.
