PixelJunk Shoot your way through Dante's Inferno on a great update for the PSN.

PlayStation Network Update: 12/10/2009

A great update this week on the PSN! The big news is the release of the demo for Dante's Inferno. This is a timed exclusive demo for PS3, so enjoy my brethren! There are also demos for the already released PSN games topatoi and Mushroom Wars.

The other huge release is the highly anticipated PixelJunk Shooter. Priced at the attractive 10 dollar mark we love for their games, this is one I am itching to play! Revenge of the Wounded Dragons and Frogger Returns also appear this week. I think many people are looking forward to Revenge of the Wounded Dragons but it gets a meh from me.

A plethora of add-ons this week, some great, some not so much. In the useless and/or overpriced camp we have music packs for The King of Fighters XII and new characters/packs for High Velocity Bowling. The music packs are far too expensive and the extra content is really not needed.

In shocking news there is some free DLC, the previously pre-order only inFAMOUS Gigawatt Blades (which I have, and love) are now free for everyone. There is also, very surprisingly, free DLC for Need For Speed Shift and Dragon Ball: Raging Blast.

On the PSP front we have a couple of new Minis and a number of new digitized games. The standouts being Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles and the Gradius Collection. Both are great titles and priced not incredibly bad.

Of course there are numerous videos, themes and wallpapers to enjoy as well. 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.
