This weekend is all about the simple pleasures in life: Stomping through Necromorph in Dead Space 2’s New Game Plus mode (I highly advise maxing out the Javelin gun) and mowing down Helghast in Killzone 3’s Campaign Demo. I’m also infatuated with the charm and whimsy of
Stacking, the adorable new adventure game from the minds of Double Fine’s Tim Schafer and Lee Petty. If you’re a PlayStation Plus user, you have no excuse — it’s free for a limited time.
I’m also hoping to sink my teeth into two PSN exclusives this weekend:
Explodemon and Tales From Space: About a Blob. Oh, and I’ve got to see how Plants vs Zombies translates to the DualShock 3. Guess I shouldn’t plan to leave the house…
