Today’s European PlayStation Network Store Update is a good one for anyone looking for full, meaty gaming experiences that represent great value for money. Yes, that sounds like the nasty verbose nonsense you get in a PRESS RELEASE but it’s true, there’s some great games out today.
First up is The Cave, a game that Teflon took a good look at recently and came away with positive vibes – we’re playing through the full game just now and it’s a good one. It’s a tenner, but there’s a trial and unlock so you can give it a go for free first. That’s on PS3, by the way.
Also on PS3 is Demon’s Souls, the rock hard adventure-em-up. It’s only £16, too, which is a bit of a bargain. If you’ve played the second game but not the first this is a nice way to get into the series, it’s a little different but still well worth picking up.
Zombie Driver HD also hits PS3 today, that’s £8, and the Dust 514 Beta lands too. Keep an eye out for the ‘classic’ shooter Mad Dog McCree, the 1990’s arcade laserdisk game, if you like your action cheesy (and a bit low-resolution).
PS Vita owners should definitely pick up the free Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed demo. It’s fantastic on Vita, with some really clean visuals (some bits actually look better than they do on the Wii U, especially on the Afterburner stage) and the same excellent gameplay as the big console versions. Doodle God, the top selling iPhone game, also lands on Vita for £4.79.
A new arrival on PSN is something called Mix Superstar. “Think you can be the next big music star?” it says. “Well now you’ve got all the tools right at your fingertips with Mix Superstar. Create, mix and record your own royalty-free musical masterpieces right on your PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. There are over 1,000 Dance, Hip Hop and Rock loops included across multiple instruments like Drum, Bass, Synth, Guitar and even voice tracks.”
There’s a shop in there for DLC too, with 20 packs of music loops to buy. The base package is £8, but there’s a free demo too.
Dead or Alive 5 fans will no doubt be delighted to see there’s a “hotties” swimwear DLC pack. It’s a tenner. Yeah. There’s also DLC for Angry Birds Trilogy, the Dead Space 3 demo (which is obviously free) and the Metal Gear Rising demo (again, free).
We’re expecting more to be confirmed in the next few hours, we’ll update this post as and when those games come through.
