Today sees the release of the In Motion DLC for Portal 2, a video explaining the new (Move) controls is below but in short it’s a new set of test chambers that use the motion control exclusively, and the option to use the Move through the main story mode. Sadly it’s not free – the pack costs £8 – but we’ll take a look at it as soon as possible and let you know what we think about it – throwing and Portal surfing look cool at least.
There’s also a demo for Need For Speed: Most Wanted, so if you’ve yet to try out EA’s latest driving game then today’s your chance to do so for free.
Agarest: Generations Of War 2 is also out on PS3 – £27.99/€34.99, Of Orcs And Men is £49.99/€59.99, and Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package is £39.99/€49.99. And if you’re looking for some kart action and aren’t sure about F1 Race Stars, check out Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for £29.99/€39.99 – a great price.
Over on the PS Vita there’s the much anticipated but currently under-reviewed Black Ops Declassified, which apparently only takes an hour to get through the main single player campaign – a set of small missions that play like those in Unit 13. There’s more to the game (and 4 vs. 4 online of course) but that does sound pretty short considering it’s a £45 gamble.
“Single Player Operations are a blend of story missions and short objective-based missions,” explained Nihilistic’s Robert Huebner. “They are tight, fast-paced and meant to be replayed to get higher scores and better times. Similar to story missions, they weave together and tell a story, including cinematic moments that feature dialogue and reveals.”
Over on PlayStation Mobile there’s the quirkly looking Panic! and the return of Amiga classic Alien Breed, which now features the same updated graphics and a chunk of levels that the recent iOS version did. Yes, it’s more expensive than it is on iPhone at £3.19/€3.99 but those Vita buttons will make dispatching the bad guys considerably easier. Alien Breed was great, and hopes are high that the PSM release still has that magic.
Obviously Retro City Rampage isn’t there – hopefully, unlike Counter Strike, it will appear at some point. I think we’re pretty close to just giving up hope on RCR, but we’ll give it another week or two.
