‘Heads-Up’ Game Store Update 20th October 2010 (And A Goodbye)

'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 20th October 2010

This week’s update is going to be a bit different to previous weeks; it’ll be a bit more personal than usual…though I’ll go into more detail after discussing this week’s content.
Tim Schafer’s latest creation Costume Quest hits the store this week, and it’s the perfect title for unleashing your inner child and embracing Halloween with pure unadulterated joy (that you would usually get scorned for as an adult). No matter how I try and describe this title I’ll most likely do it a disservice, so just check it out and make up your own mind (Ed: you could also watch the video interview with Tim and Tasha Harris here).
Swords and Soliders also joins the ranks this week, and any game that can say (taken straight from the marketing material) “blend ninja monkeys, attacking Aztecs and brutal Vikings with everything you love about real time strategy games and you’ve got Swords and Soldiers” must be worth a look, right? Not only does this game have local and online multiplayer, it also supports 3D too, so definitely something for you with swanky 3D TVs to be taking a look at.
The rest of the content is, as ever, listed below.
Now for my news; this will actually be my very last PlayStation Store update, as I’m actually leaving SCEE next Tuesday.
[pause for effect]
It’s still hard for me to believe my time at PlayStation is coming to a close, but I’ll still be involved with the platform as I’m off to join the digital team at SEGA; so I’ll definitely be coming back every now and again with the latest news from the world of SEGA. You won’t be getting rid of me completely.
Sincerely though, it has been a pleasure being here and talking to you all on a weekly basis, and all the best for the future to PlayStation, the staff here, and you the community!
It’s been emotional.
