The PlayStation Recap

25 5

Helluva week, guys. On top of getting some hands-on time with Resistance 3‘s multiplayer and single-player modes, as well at Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Twisted Metal as part of our Worldwide Studios Tour, I’ve returned home to an avalanche of fan-freaking-tastic PSN game releases. And Tuesday marks another milestone with the release of major PS3 retail games SOCOM 4, Mortal Kombat, and Portal 2. Gaming gods, give me strength…

What are you playing right now? What are you most excited to play on Tuesday?
