Tuesday is a big day for fans of Everyday Shooter with the long-awaited PSN release of Queasy Games’ PS Vita and PS3 musical platformer Sound Shapes. I’ve watched this game evolve by leaps and bounds in the last year, from its first public showing last July through the participation of artists deadmau5, Superbrothers, Jim Guthrie, and Beck. Even though I’m not much of a musician, I’m dying to get my hands on Sound Shapes’ extensive level editor and try out the challenging Trophy Mode.
This week also saw the announcement of the highly amusing PSN party game Lights Camera Party! and the PAYDAY: The Heist Wolfpack DLC; the PSN launch of The Expendables 2: The Video Game, Escape Plan’s new DLC Underground, and the first wave of Disney Princess costumes for LittleBigPlanet; a look at Papo & Yo’s realistic graffiti and Darksiders II’s cast of creatures; and the Trophy list for Metal Gear Solid 4’s long-awaited Trophy update.
