An average week on the PSN. Where are the games Sony?

PlayStation Network Update: 06/26/2008

Well, I suppose every week can't be a blockbuster. I am still peeved at the drought of PS1 classics considering the announcement that Einhander and XenoGears will be on the Japanese PSN. If they ever release Vagrant Story I may have to move to Japan…or something.

Well it isn't a completely horrible week. I am loving this trend of FREE game themed music for Guitar Hero III; we have a World of Warcraft song if you can believe it this week. The requisite late Rock Band content is here with the Pixies album and three Weezer tracks.

Take the good with the bad and yet another character you have to pay for is released for PAIN, but the second content update should be online as well. To balance that out the North American Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds demo finally makes an appearance, and we also see a demo drop for Top Spin 3.

As usual we have a literal boatload of game videos focusing on Battlefield: Bad Company, Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway, Call of Duty: World at War, The Incredible Hulk and HAZE. We also have movie trailers for The House Bunny, So I Married An Axe Murderer Blu-Ray and Men In Black Blu-Ray.

Finally we have a theme for PAIN featuring Nigel and a PSN theme. Not a horrible week, but definitely nothing compared to the last few weeks. Sony, we want to buy stuff aside from songs and you give us no options. Hook us up already! Deets on the update are below!

Add-on Game Content

PAIN Nigel Character ($0.99)
Meet the newest downloadable character Nigel, a British punk so full of rage that the only thing he doesn’t hate is PAIN, and he hates the fact that he doesn’t hate it. He’s brassed off and ready to bang his head into whatever and whoever gets in his way (watch out for those spikes!). Well, it sounds like he’s asking for for it, so give him a launch…and make it a PAINful one.

PlayStation 4 Review: ‘Risen 3: Titan Lords Enhanced Edition’ from Piranha Bytes

'Risen 3: Titan Lords' is a flawed, but deep pirate-themed, action roleplaying game. While the new Enhanced Edition's release lacked much fanfare, it is a significant upgrade. Unfortunately, the game still lacks the polish required for wider appeal.
