‘Heads-Up’ PlayStation Store Update (23rd June 2010)

459 0

Welcome to what future civilisations may describe as something of a monster week of content.  I’m going to be modest and say it’s only slightly monster, but you get the picture; there’s a serious amount of content available this week (before anybody says otherwise, I have not been sitting on it all this time, I promise) :-)
Before we tuck into the main bulk of the update, there are new Special Offers available this week, with some monstrous PixelJunk related goodness on offer amongst other titles, and we also have a collection of Sonic goodies from SEGA on offer to help celebrate the blue one’s 19th birthday.  I asked if the spiky one was available to come to the blog to comment, but apparently he’s a game character and doesn’t actually really exist.  Shame.
So, onto the new content, let’s head straight into one of the most discussed games in these comment sections of late…The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, yes indeed it’s here at last.  Avast mateys!  Come and enjoy the piratey goodness that’s in store.  Classic gameplay, liberally covered with lovely new splashes of paint, and more Guybrush than you’ll know what to do with, sounds good right?
If you want more, then Battlefield: Bad Company 2 drops new supplies onto the front, with the new Onslaught Mode hitting hard and fast.  Adding new multiplayer co-op gameplay elements for you and three friends – thus meaning four players can test their skills across new maps – this is an explosive new addition for all you battlefield veterans out there.
Not enough for you?  Well then I hasten to add that we have the latest Sam and Max episode, retro based fun in the form of 3D helicopter adventure game Landit Bandit, Helghast additions to the world of Lost Planet 2 via the Killzone 2 Character Pack and much more besides.  There literally is too much for me to try and do justice to through my mere words…therefore, as usual, there’s a full list below.
One final thing to mention, Red Dead Redemption had its first piece of additional content hit the store yesterday in the shape of the Outlaws to the End Co-op Pack, so get downloading for more multiplayer fun in the Wild West…and even better, it’s totally free!
If you’re mean to me this week in the comments I will likely cry (which will probably happen anyway this afternoon if England get beat by Slovenia), so let’s just all bask in the glow of the global harmony the World Cup has brought and only trade compliments this week.  Deal?
Cheers all.
