PixelJunk Eden! ‘Nuff said! In all seriousness, get this game if you download anything from this update.
Another great week on the trusty old PSN. We have the aforementioned Pixeljunk Eden game and a number of demos. LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, Madden NFL 09 and FaceBreaker all appear in demo form. We have DLC for Rock Band, as usual, as well as an equipment pack for Soul Caliber IV, which although I hate DLC like this may buy.
Multimedia is huge this week with a literal boatload of content. We have trailers for The Last Guy, Vampire Rain: Altered Species, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Beijing 2008 and the AST Dew Tour. Of all of these The Last Guy is a thrill to see. This will be a small game at a small price but incredibly unique in concept.
On the visual enhancement front we have a Killzone 2 and PixelJunk Eden Theme as well as wallpapers from Street Fighter IV, Soul Caliber IV and Siren: Blood Curse. Last but not least, there is the Soul Caliber IV soundtrack in bite size or full options.
A great week again, but come on, Sony, where are the trophies and PS1 classics? I kid, I kid. Now I have to go and play some PixelJunk Eden and finally add some different trophies! Huzzah!
