A GREAT day on the PSN! Updates! Add-ons! Demos! Videos!

PlayStation Network Update: 07/10/2008

Wow — you wanted demos, you got demos! First we had the successful re-introduction of in-game XMB and Trophies and the sound of trophies and SSHD being played is dinging around the world.

On the add-on front we have a FREE (I know) add-on for Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and the requisite Rock Band tracks. The demo section is HUGE this week with demos for Monster Madness: Grave Danger, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Wall-E and the creepy Siren: Blood Curse which was a nice surprise!

Tons of game videos as usual looking at SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation, Elefunk, Siren: Blood Curse, Super Stardust HD, AST Dew Tour, Civilization Revolution, Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway and Dead Space. We also have a movie trailer for Quarantine.

Not listed is the Cagney update for Burnout Paradise adding graphic tweaks for non-HD and 1080i support, freeburn modes and much, much more. Makes me want the game REAL bad. For the first time in…well maybe ever? We have no wallpapers or themes…shocking! Deets are below.

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.
