‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (26th May 2010)

327 55

So I’m pretty confident that this week, there’s got to be something available for everyone…I’ll be surprised if there isn’t. Oh, hello by the way, hope you are well :-)

So, let’s get cracking. The first of the new games I want to highlight this week is Fret Nice, which takes the world of guitar based rock and platforming gameplay mechanics and combines them into a side-scrolling game…intriguing no? Moving on, we have the sequel to Soldner-X: Himmelssturmer, this time with an easier to pronounce title too; Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype. This game features masses of enemies, an arsenal of explosive weaponry, and looks pretty gorgeous too, it’s also a great reminder of the old-school side-scrolling shooters of yesteryear too (what is it with side-scrolling games this week?).

For those of you who have bought the Sam and Max bundle, then Episode 2: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak (catchy title huh, did you see what they did there?) is available this week too. I’m sure there will be many of you who have not had enough Final Fantasy in your life recently, so we’re pleased to say that the PSone release of Final Fantasy IX also hits the store today!

As mentioned on the blog earlier this week, we have the madcap mini Feel For Two available this week, and what’s there not to love about a game that features mini-games with names such as Pile Up! Bakery and Sheep Defense.

I also want to mention quickly that we have MAG dynamic themes available and new avatars from the worlds of Uncharted 2 and Soldner-X 2

As always though I don’t have enough room to write about everything that’s released this week, there are other games, demos and additional content that I have not been able to talk about. So I suggest you take a look below for the full rundown.

As usual, comments fun shall be had, so let me know your thoughts. Cheerio ;)
