'Heads-Up' Game Store Update (13th October 2010)

If you have any heart at all, then you will have spent the last few months giddy with excitement over the coming release of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. I know he’s hurt us all in the past, but now we can officially move on, because this new game hurtles us straight back into the old-school action you know and love.
If you did not play the Sonic games back in the day on a Master System or Mega Drive then you won’t have the same fuzzy nostalgic feeling that I (and many others) have, but I played this new version to completion the other day and it was everything I wanted. If you’ve never played a Sonic game before, then prepare yourself for…well, I’ll just let the mighty blue one speak for himself.
That’s not all this week though, EA release the animated comic/meta game/mini games/unlock mechanism that is Dead Space Ignition. This is a glimpse into the world between the two main games, and you’ll receive unlockable content for use in Dead Space 2 when it releases.
Continuing the sci-fi theme, The Force Unleashed 2 is now available in demo form, so you can practice your lightsaber and force skills on pretty much everything you’ll see. So you can fling, push, smash and combo to your hearts content!
Petrolheads are catered for with a host of DLC for Split/Second, WRC (World Rally Championship) and Moto GP 10. As for the rest, surely I don’t need to mention this anymore…but the full list is below.
Enjoy.
