PS Plus Update: Free Vanquish, Mega Man Maverick Hunter

In case Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance isn't enough action from Platinum Games for one week, PlayStation 3 owners can step up to the plate for a second helping in the form of Vanquish. The high-energy third-person shooter arr...

New releases: Slicing and dicing in Metal Gear Rising photo
New releases: Slicing and dicing in Metal Gear Rising
by Fraser Brown

I'm aching all over after enjoying the weekend just a wee bit too much, so I don't really feel ready for another Monday. Not having the ability to stop time, I'm just going to have to power through. At least there are plenty of games to help me forget the fact that I feel like death warmed up.

Two big releases are looking set to dominate this week: the obnoxiously named Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Crysis 3, which I guess also has a silly, if more mundane, title. I'm not particularly excited about either of them, but as a chap who favors swords over guns, I'm far more likely to indulge in Raiden's cyborg adventures than any nanosuit shenanigans.

Also dropping this week is Paradox's war-focused Napoleonic romp, March of the Eagles; PC puzzler, The Bridge; crazy platforming, exploring, and turn-based strategy in A Valley Without Wind 2; things for your old PSP; and a bunch of DLC.

What are you splashing out on this week?

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment surfaces on ESRB

[Update: The commenters have brought up a good point, that this could also be a PSOne Classics release and not a localization of the Japanese PSP version. Of course, we'll let you know as soon as we do.] Another of those atte...

Aksys localizing game where you are Keiji Inafune's niece

I have to hand it to Aksys. They've been taking a lot of risks on titles which, even in today's tolerant environment, would still be considered niche-within-niche. Games like this one, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side (Bakudan Handan...

Final Fantasy Type-0 fan translation is coming along

What to do when your supplier of JRPGs won't give you the one you want. You could bitch on forums, or maybe start a petition. Or just do the dirty work yourself. That's what is happening with PSP game Final Fantasy Type-0, a...

PSP RPG Sword Art Online looks surprisingly good

Let's face it, the Vita is struggling. But that doesn't mean one of Sony's handhelds isn't doing well. Despite the presence of sexy new technology, the PlayStation Portable is still enjoying quite a bit of success&...

Demon-slaying Vita owners, put Toukiden on your radar

Gaijinworks taking pre-pre-orders for latest PSP RPG

Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows photo
Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows
by Kyle MacGregor

The original Corpse Party follows a group of children's descent into hell. After performing a ritual, these students are unexpectedly transported to an alternate dimension and trapped in a cursed elementary school. Malevolent spirits await who are intent on toying with the kid's innocent minds and eviscerating their helpless bodies.

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows picks up where the last one left off. Well, sort of. The game tells seven standalone stories that range from backstories, to what if scenarios, off-camera events, and even some canonical new territory. Unfortunately, much of this won't make sense to newcomers, so playing the first entry is highly recommended. For those in the know, a poignantly macabre tale awaits.
