IT’S MAHVEL BABY! Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is on sale via the PlayStation Store for a tempting $7. Or perhaps you’re more interested in fatalities than pulling off quarter circles? Online Passes for Moral Kombat, which was released today by the way, are also on sale. I’ve been on a bit of a fighting game kick lately – could you tell?

Interested to see what else Sony has in store for us this week? The full update awaits after the break.

ifun4all aims at the ground just between their feet. In an attempt to make ‘the worst game ever’, the European collective managed to make a fun iOS title, Crap of Defense, that garnered a number of good reviews. Snapping their fingers and hoping to get a harsher reception from the more hardcore handheld crowd, they ported the game as PSP mini Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder. Again much to their despair, they receive high marks. So, when other developers are shooting for the stars today with the likes of Bulletstorm and Killzone 3, ifun4all is limbo-ing under the bar with the Playstation Network version of the game, crap-tastic graphics in tow.

Blimp: The Flying Adventures is not a terribly deep or substantial game. It’s a twenty level downloadable Steampunk 2D version of Crazy Taxi with bombs available for the PS3, PSP and iOS devices. If that sounds like your cup of tea hit the jump for the full review.

From the makers of Zombie Tycoon and Young Thor comes … A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! This PlayStation minis title is making its way to PS3 and PSP via the PlayStation Network for the low, low price of – yes, that’s right, $1.99. For PlayStation Plus subscribers the title will be absolutely free when the game launches next week.

The game is pretty much what you would expect, which is entirely fine by me. The PlayStation Network really could use some more good shmups. So if you could use a little more alien blasting in your life, be on the lookout for A Space Shooter for Two Bucks! on December 21st.

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?!

PSP Minis were kind of dead on arrival. iTunes has them beat in just about every respect: lower price points, a wider variety of genres, and most importantly, the fact that there are more iTunes games released in one day than there are currently on the minis marketplace in total.

Can Stellar Attack’s old school charm bring PSP Minis back from the dead? Read more… »

I’ve been following Halfbrick’s progress as a developer for some time, chiefly for the fact that I like to support Brisbane devs. Having been lucky enough to do some focus testing on their upcoming XBLA title, Raskulls, I was keen to see what titles they were able to pump out on the side.

Enter: Rocket Racing for the PlayStation Minis collection. The introduction of these pint-sized productions has been something of a revelation for PS3 and PSP owners, as they are often the perfect games to play on the run.

Rocket Racing seeks to punch players in the face with a fistful of fast-paced racing, while at the same time, appeal to our obvious lust for all things retro. But does it succeed?

I loved Van Helsing, the 2004 movie with Hugh Jackman tearing through wolfmen, vampires, and all sorts was just too much fun. Sadly, the official game wasn’t up to much. Dracula: Undead Awakening (D:UA) takes that Van Helsing vibe and puts it straight into a top-down shooter for the PlayStation Minis collection.

Originally an iPhone release, D:UA has now been ported for Sony’s ever increasing range of Minis. Just how does this twin-stick shooter translate to the single stick PSP?  Answer: Not too badly, actually.

Matt Davis, creator of the popular Avatar Golf for Xbox Live’s Indie section, recently lamented the often critical attitude of gamers to indie sports titles: “You will still get compared to the elite developers and their games,” he complained.

Whether it is fair or not to compare something like Avatar Golf to EA’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour series is an argument for another day, though. Gameloft’s Let’s Golf! for the Playstation Minis collection is what we’re talking about today – a port of an iPhone game that actually does stand up quite well when compared to another full priced title, Hot Shots Golf.
