'Heads-Up' Game Store Update 27th October 2010

Welcome one and all to another EU PlayStation Store ‘Heads-Up’ blog update. Mr Kebby may have left the building, but I will strive to continue his good work and keep on improving the Store as much as we can. If the next two years of upgrades and changes are in any way as welcome and successful as the improvements that happened under Mike’s care, then we’ll be in good shape.
Enough about Mike anyway… he’s undoubtedly sat at home in his pants playing Fallout New Vegas, but I have to talk about what we’ve got for you this week.
You’ve probably already downloaded Undead Nightmare, and if not then you really should – the chance to play another brand-new chunk of story from the sublime Red Dead Redemption should be reason enough, even without the promise of hordes of zombies to run down in your little red wagon. Don’t forget, if you’ve been holding out on grabbing all the Red Dead DLC, then the perfect chance has arrived in the shape of the Undead Collection, which also includes the ‘Liars and Cheats’ and ‘Legends and Killers’ packs at a cut down price.
No fewer than four demos for you this week – of course we have Time Crisis: Razing Storm for you Move owners, as well as NFS: Hot Pursuit, FOTNS: Ken’s Rage and the intriguing and quite charming Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom.
Continuing the zombie theme we’ve got the Sports Fan Skill Pack for Dead Rising 2 up for grabs – it’s a good one too, wearing the costume means your run speed really increases, which helps you dodge those nasty infected and for a bit of extra crowd control ability, try holding an American Football.
For your handhelds this week we’ve got Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, a really great RPG from Game Arts. Hopefully we’ll see more of these kinds of games on the Store soon.
And Pro Evolution Soccer makes a triumphant return to PSP this week with PES 2011. I should point out that you won’t be able to get this today – mainland Europe can snag it from tomorrow, UK bods will see it hit the Store on Friday and it’ll be next Friday (5th November) before you can grab it in Australia or New Zealand.
Anyways, I hope we’ve got something to please you this week and if not, odds are there’ll be something for you next week when it’s going to be crazy busy on the Store. I’ll be around for comments for chunks of the afternoon so if I don’t reply to you right away, check back a bit later on.
Bye for now!
