Braid leads the pack this week on the PSN, additional games games, demos and a Mini make this a great update.

PlayStation Network Update: 11/12/2009

Another week, another great PSN update. Again we have some deals, some great add-ons, new games and some demos.

The big addition to the PSN is the hugely successful and critically acclaimed game Braid. This time altering puzzle game will have you thinking in different ways then ever before, it also features a beautiful water color inspired look. Braid is joined by Star Trek D-A-C, a top down shooter that comes to the PS3 with some updates and new modes.

There are a number of demos available, most I am not terribly interested in, but nice to see them. You can try out Inferno Pool, NCAA Basketball 10, MX Vs. ATV Reflex, and Star Trek: D-A-C before you buy! There is a new PSOne classic (not Vagrant Story, sigh!) in the form of Command & Conquer: Red Alert as well.

A nice selection of add-ons, particularly so because some of them are free. A fat princess character for PAIN is joined by two Rag Doll Kung Fu characters for the lovely price of nothing. A new PAIN mode and a character pack for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 are joined by the regular Rock Band and Guitar Hero releases for various amounts of real dollars.

On the PSP we have four Pinball Heroes games featuring tables based on High Velocity Bowling, Hot Shots Golf, PAIN and Uncharted. A new PSP mini, Bubble Trubble, is available for your playing pleasure as well.

Many great videos and some nice Tekken 6 wallpapers round out the update for this week. A good week with plenty to check out, for more details, please visit the official PlayStation Blog.

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.
