    Two New Casual Titles Added to PS Mobile

    If you've got a Vita (or some other PlayStation Mobile Certified device) then you have access not only to standard PSN titles but also the entire PSMobile library. This section includes games that were primarily made for smartphones but also can be a great deal of fun on the Vita. Today two new titles were released and both seem to warrant their sub $3 prices. First there is Ten By Eight. This is a puzzle game with pastel-colored graphics and cute little characters. Your goal is to match blocks on screen just like other games of the genre. There are three modes available which switch up the gameplay a tad. Ten By Eight is being sold for $2.99. Next is iBomber Defense which is the more well known of the two. As the name implies, it is a (tower) defense game. There are a large amount of weapons you can use to defend yourself from anti-aircraft artillery to simple machine guns. iBomber Defense also appears to make use of the Vita touch screen. You can download it for $2.79. If either of these games look appealing to you then you can read more about them via PS Blog.

  9. Did you know that Deep Silver had a twin stick shooter waiting to be published? They sure didn't seemed to advertise it much. This game goes by the name of Narco Terror and has made its surprise debut on PSN today. Although we don't know how good the game actually is, shooter fans should at least be able to appreciate some of the inspiration for it. The developers named the likes of Commando, Geometry Wars, Ikari Warriors, and Renegade Ops as titles that helped shape Narco Terror. In the title you proceed through a scrolling 2.5D landscape while spewing bullets and destruction at everything in your path. Of course, this is pretty much expected of the genre. There will also be sections in which players use planes and boats although these are not the standard. Narco Terror is $9.99 on PSN today. However, if you can wait one more day the game will also make its way to XBLA and PC for the same price. Well, XBLA's version costs 800 MS Points but that equates to $10 anyway.
  10. Today, the Playstation Blog has announced that a bundle of Journey and The Unfinished Swan went up with the new PS Store update. You can now buy both games together for the price of $14.99; two-for-one, essentially, as both were that price individually before today. If you haven't played them yet, both games were critically acclaimed when they launched last year, and were also considered for Game of the Year 2012 awards throughout numerous media outlets. Of course, we happened to like both quite a bit as well as each earned very favorable reviews. It's currently unknown whether this is the new status quo price for both games or if it's a limited time sale (as the PS Blog doesn't allude to a closing date), but hey, the deal is out there right now as you read this.

    Fatal Frame II on PSN Finally Receives Fix

    Back on May 7th, Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly launched on PSN as a PS2 Classic. As far as most of us were concerend, it was cool to see the Tecmo Koei game getting attention again. Those who purchased and downloaded it however came across a multitude of issues trying to play the game. Thanks to the careful eye of Rely on Horror we see that a patched version of the game has just been launched on PSN. This update coincided with today's PS Store update. If you already downloaded Fatal Frame II before then you will have to completely delete it though before downloading the new version. Players who were interested in but forgot about this PS2 Classic release should now feel safe in purchasing a copy. It costs $9.99 on PSN and the first game in the series is also available.
  12. If you've been looking for a fiendishly hard game to play then perhaps you're in for a treat with Cloudberry Kingdom. Okay, so the name sounds incredibly sweet, but that is just an attempt to throw you off guard. This platformer is made to be difficult, just like some other infamous platformers out there. Strangely, the game also has randomly generated levels. This sounds incredibly dangerous for a platformer but developer Pwnee Studios assures players that the AI is far more intelligent then we all expect. It is apparently able to judge distance between platforms, what would be considered a good layout for various difficulty settings, and the like. You can download Cloudberry Kingdom right now on PSN (for PS3) for $9.99. A Vita version is likely to launch next month. If you absolutely hate PSN though you can wait until August 2nd to grab the game on Steam. Or you can even wait for the eventual launches on XBLA and Wii U. Cloudberry Kingdom is ready to spread the pain to all types of gamers.

    Real Boxing Brings Virtual Boxing to Vita

    For some reason, there has been a trend for a while to name games Real [blank]. Why? They certainly aren't "real" in the typical sense, even if they are the most realistic portrayals of their specific sport/event. With that said, there's yet another game with this sort of title and it is Real Boxing for the Vita. Real Boxing is a simulation game by Vivid Media that lets players participate on action inside the ring but also outside of it. So while there's a ton of actual boxing involved you also have to train your character outside the ring to prepare them to become a champion boxer. As you might expect, there are also multiplayer modes available such as tournaments or simply playing with a friend. Real Boxing began as an iOS/Android title but still looks pretty good thanks to being powered by Unreal Engine 3. You'll be able to pick up the Vita version on August 27th for $9.99.
  14. Looking for more horror in your gaming diet? Unfortunately most big developers are not yet ready to chase it, but the genre does see continued attention from the indie developer crowd. One such upcoming title is Forgotten Memories, which likely has escaped attention due to being an iOS title. Of course, Psychoz Interactive isn't going to keep their game restricted to one console. In the Touch Arcade forums they have been saying a whole lot of stuff, including that Forgotten Memories will come to Wii U and likely Vita. In fact, Psychoz Interactive owner Georges Paz said this: "Btw, Forgotten Memories will be showcased in the Official Nintendo Magazine for the best upcoming Wii U games. More info soon." This of course doesn't make sense if you consider that Nintendo Power is no longer being published in the United States and Canada. We'll just assume they perhaps mean a Nintendo magazine in some other English-speaking location. In any case, it seems that this horror game is going to proliferate itself all over the place.

    Square's Chaos Rings Now on PSN

    What is Chaos Rings? If you're not familiar with the Square Enix property it's likely because it is a smartphone game. The RPG has higher than average quality graphics as well as a story to go along with the adventure. In order to uncover everything about the game, you've also got to play it a few times through. The game has now been made available in English via PlayStation Mobile. Of course, since the Vita has a PSM section accessible on the PS Store that means anyone with a Vita can give the game a go. Just be to remind yourself that it is a smartphone game at heart. If you're interested in trying out Chaos Rings then you'll be glad to know it is available today at the cost of $7.99.
  16. Last month a game by the name of Atomic Ninjas was announced. Despite having a lovely description, we still weren't exactly sure what the game was going to be like. After all, nothing showcases a game better than an actual video. Today developer Grip Games took over PS Blog to share just that. First off, the game is very multiplayer-centric and includes fast ninja action. This includes the ability to jump high, float around (with jetpacks), become invisible, and swing/cling to the ceiling and walls when it suits you. Players cannot kill each other with their ninjas explicitly, but must force them into dangerous predicaments. This leads to a bit of strategy in an otherwise frenetic match where players must try and lure others into the path of deadly lasers, fire pits, or squish them with blocks. Players can engage in a variety of modes in free-for-all style or on teams. Atomic Ninjas is still slated for late summer launch on PS3 and Vita. Although they couldn't announce it now, Grip Games have said chances are "VERY high" it will be a Cross Buy title.

    Do Not Fall Coming to PSN Tomorrow

    Here's an odd little game that has definitely not seen much press up until now. Do Not Fall comes to us from XPEC Entertainment and has the main mechanic of, well, not falling. The ground in the game is comprised of blocks which disappear after you step on them. Walking where these gaps now are cause your character to fall and that's obviously a bad thing. The single player mode features traps and puzzles that connect with this floor-falling mechanic to challenge players. There are also multiplayer modes which allow up to four players to do their best making their friends fall off the stage. A soccer mode was also detailed which seems it would probably be extremely hectic as the floor falls to pieces. Although this is likely the first you've heard of the game it is not just some announcement post. Nope, Do Not Fall is out on PSN tomorrow at an unspecified price. The PS Blog post does not even mention whether the game is PS3 or Vita, but we will update once they clarify.

    PS Plus Brings Metal Slug XX to PSN

    So you might be disappointed about Steam's sale but at least those with a PS Plus subscription will continue to be able to reap the reward of free games with their subscription. The weekly PS Plus post went live on PS Blog today which reveals that not much is actually happening right now. The newest Instant Game Collection inductee is Metal Slug XX. This is the PSP version which came out in 2010. As with other PSP PSN games, you can download and play it on Vita. Without PS Plus, you'd be spending $20 on the pixelated mayhem. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward leaves the service shortly so definitely pick that up if you had been waiting. Thomas Was Alone fans can also pick up Benjamin's Flight DLC at the discounted $1.74 price. Beyond that there's no other sales to speak of. Of course, the PLAY event also goes live this week which probably explains why the PS Plus update is so bare.
  19. Do we have any Hot Shots Golf fans in the house? The series, which first arose on the PlayStation, has seen a great deal of iterations over the years across platforms. Now the very latest is just about to arrive on PS3. Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is the game and it was the focus of PS Blog's latest post. If you have a Vita then you likely recall Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational already coming out on the system. Changes to the PS3 edition include local multiplayer as well as PS Move compatibility. Players will also be able to tee off online from either PS3 or Vita version. They have also made sure that any Vita DLC you purchased will be unlocked for the PS3 version. Fans should look for Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational in store or on PSN when it launches on July 23rd. The game will be sold at a discount price of $20.

    Worms Revolution Extreme Inching onto Vita

    Worms fans may have played Worms Revolution last year, but if they own a Vita they're definitely lacking any sort of portable Worms action. In an attempt to remedy the sad situation, Team 17 announced that they are bringing an updated version of Worms Revolution to the handheld. The PS Blog post offered up a good deal of information about Worms Revolution Extreme. There are nearly 50 missions and 25 puzzles. It includes online or offline play and has even added in an unusual new feature called Cross-Gifting. This works between players on Vita who connect with a PS3 player to give them a key. These special keys unlock presents of some sort. Expected new features such as touch screen control were also added. Players can also transfer their saves between the Vita and PS3 versions so they theoretically never have to stop playing - however, the post did not mention Cross-Buy. Expect to see Worms Revolution Extreme out late this year.

    Review: Sanctum 2

    Developer: Coffee Stain Studios Publisher: Coffee Stain Studios, D3 Publisher, Reverb Platform: PC (Steam), PSN, XBLA Release Date: May 15, 2013 ESRB: T for Teen This review is based on the Xbox 360 version of the game. A download code was provided by the publisher for this review. Tower defense game Sanctum initially came to PC in 2011 to surprise success. It was right around the time that the genre was getting a fresh start and PC gamers had a blast. Unfortunately, console owners were left out of the fun. With Sanctum 2, upgrades have been made, as well as bringing the game to Xbox 360 and PS3 alongside PC. Is this the definitive experience or can players skip it? Sanctum 2 brings us back into the fight with even greater flair than before. Of course, it also retains the features that made the original so refreshing. This isn“t a traditional tower defense game as it includes FPS elements as well. Setting up towers is done from a first-person perspective and, once that“s done, so is each wave. When enemies swarm it feels much more like a sci-fi shooter although you have the aid of your towers along the way. At the start of each level, players must select one of four character classes. Each has their own skills which aid various play styles. Characters also have their loadouts which allow you to swap weapons, usable towers, and perks. At the start, you can“t really do anything with these, but completing levels rewards players with new weapons, towers, perks, and more slots to place them all. Once in a battle, the game is divided into two sections. First is the mode of placing towers and the other is when enemies charge into battle. Towers can only go in specific areas and only if you have enough currency to place them. There are a multitude of tower types to choose from which all have their benefits and weak points. For example, some are best at slowing enemies, while others are great for land-based creatures only. All towers have their own fee requirements and once built will remain there unless you choose to dismantle them for parts. They are also able to be upgraded a number of times, which is useful as each level has a max amount of towers that can be built. Placing towers is of such importance because there will usually be enemies coming from multiple directions at once. You could place all your goods around one entrance, but what will you do when a new entrance emerges? Keeping a plan in mind is absolutely necessary as waves become more hectic. With everything placed, the attack starts. Enemies will emerge from their specified entrances and you“re tasked with keeping them away from the core. The core is critical to mission success. If enough monsters manage to destroy it then you lose the match. There are perks to allow the core to regenerate health in between waves, but mostly, you should be able to keep enemies at bay for as long as possible. Using shotguns, sniper rifles, and a variety of other weapons you can curtail enemy progression, as long as attention is kept on the best way to dispatch them. Many enemies have red weak spots which are by far the best way to destroy their armored bodies. Playing can be done in either single player or co-op. Up to four players can join in on the action via online play. This works well, and seems to be the intended mode of play. This is because, even on easy, maps can become pretty tough for a single player. There are some issues with multiplayer, but only if you“re not playing on PC. In fact, it seems that most of the problems with the game are only still present for console players. When Sanctum 2 launched, it still required some tuning up. For one, the game would always throw you a new stash of resources near the core. This may sound good until you have to trek back from wherever you are in the level to collect them before building more towers. It was a completely silly design decision considering the game could just as easily automatically deposit them among players. In regards to multiplayer, it was also not possible to share resources among players. Instead, they could only be used exclusively per player which seemed unfortunate. These issues have been addressed in a patch for PC. Players on Xbox 360 will see no such changes however. Perhaps the patch will come to all systems later, but as of right now it definitely isn“t there. It“s a real shame considering there are so many small annoyances that were fixed but players like me won“t be able to experience the streamlined game - at least not yet. Sanctum 2 is still a game full of mostly good concepts that upgrade the original. Players, either alone or in multiplayer, can have fun decimating wave after wave of enemies and there are enough levels to keep you entertained for a handful of hours. If you have to choose which version to get, though, it would be best to go with PC. Those in need of a new tower defense game may have just found a good new game to add to their list. Pros: + Great deal of weapons and towers to use + Strategy is integral to success in later waves + Co-op provides a more accessible game Cons: - Post-release patch has not been applied to 360 game - Becomes somewhat unfair difficulty-wise on single player - Some levels are cramped Overall Score: 7.5 (out of 10) Good Sanctum 2 stumbles in only few ways making it a worthy choice for tower defense aficionados.

    Voodoo Chronicles Brings More Casual Fun to PSN

    Although many in the gaming community have an issue with the label "casual", there are definitely times when we are looking for simpler game experiences. There isn't always a need to play a highly difficult and consuming title, after all. With that said, a new hidden object game launches on PSN tomorrow. The game is Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign and it'll be playable on PS3 with tomorrow's regular PS Store update. Developer Space Monkeys International is known for their work within the genre as they provide high-quality hidden object adventures. Voodoo Chronicles isn't a brand new game. In fact, it has already been on PC for a while. When it comes to PSN it will include 1080p resolution. Players will also be able to use a standard PS3 controller or Move. In this case the Move would probably be a better choice so you can simply point at the items on screen. You'll be able to snag the game for $5.99.

    Nab Jet Set Radio on PS3 with PS Plus

    It's the start of another week which means PS Plus subscribers are about to get a brand new game for the Instant Game Collection! Well, kind of, this time around. A while ago Jet Set Radio was added to IGF for Vita only and has since been removed. Alongside the PS Store update tomorrow we'll see Jet Set Radio for PS3 making the rounds instead. Normally the game costs $10 on PSN but PS Plus members can enjoy defacing public property and grinding on rails for free! On the opposite side of events, Germinator will make its exit from IGC tomorrow. Beyond the "new" game, there is also the upcoming PLAY sale. Even though that is quickly upcoming, discounts have also been placed on the following games for PS Plus users: Carnival Island (PS3) - $5 Datura (PS3) - $2.50 Draw Slasher (PS3) - $3.19 Sorcery (PS3) - $5 Do you think it is a good use of IGC to release the same game at different times for different platforms? Should Sony just release PS3/Vita versions together?

    PlayStation Store PLAY Sale Gears Up for Launch

    Microsoft isn't the only one with a "Summer of Arcade". Sony has their own event titled PLAY which puts the focus on a handful of neat new games with a discount. From July 16th (tomorrow) to August 20th, PSN users will be able to pre-order or buy four new titles. The dates for game launches are as follows. PS Plus members who pre-order will pay the price listed second: July 23: Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark (PS3/Vita) - $9.99 / $7.99 July 30: Cloudberry Kingdom (PS3) - $9.99 / $7.99 August 6: ibb & obb (PS3) - $9.99 / $7.99 August 13: Ducktales Remastered (PS3) - $14.99 / $11.99 There's a little more to it than just four games on sale, though. If you buy two of the selected games then you'll get $3 back. If you buy three then you're awarded $6 back. Finally, if you really wanted all of these games then you would get $10 back, which equates to basically getting one of the games for free. Do you think you'll make use of any of these upcoming PSN sales?

    Capcom vs SNK 2 Finally Appears on PS2 Classics

    It has been a long time coming but fighting fans will soon be able to buy Capcom vs SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium on the PS Store. The latest PS2 Classic release is incredibly timely, as fighting game championship EVO 2013 just concluded over the weekend. This title was initially made for the arcade before seeing releases across multiple platforms. In the US we saw it first in 2001 on PS2 before being followed by GameCube and Xbox versions. With a fairly massive roster of 44 characters, it was a much-loved fighter. As usual, we'll see Capcom vs SNK 2: Mark of the Millennium hit PSN tomorrow. Interested players can pick it up for $10. Are you going to download Capcom vs SNK 2?
