Now you can buy PSN games from Amazon

Amazon has a PlayStation Network store now, and it is exactly what you think it is. You can buy digital copies of games and downloadable content to play on your Sony gaming device. Right now you can get a $5 credit if you buy a select title from the new store, so it might be worth checking out. Some games I saw are discounted a little bit too, which is always nice.

Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons photo
Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons
by Brett Makedonski

It all starts innocently enough with a pair of brothers making their way through town. Sure, there's a task at hand, but urgency isn't an issue. It should be, but it isn't. Soaking in the warm glow of the sun and playing with some bunnies feel like more pertinent matters.

Before long, it's not apparent where the siblings are, but it's obvious that they took an unexpected turn toward Crazyville. Thinking back to just a few hours prior, it's remarkable that this is even the same adventure -- how far things have come.

That's when it hits you. Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons isn't about the destination; it's about the journey, cliché be damned. And, oh, what a journey it is.
