Well, well. You're on the battlefield now, Sammy Boy.

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 arrives this week on PlayStation Network for $19.99, but PlayStation Plus subscribers can give the game a whirl for free.

Dust 514's Starter Pack and PSP classic Mega Man Maverick Hunter X also come gratis, while Urban Trial Freestyle is marked down to $11.99 for PS3 and $7.99 on Vita. But seriously, you should play Vanquish. That game is an absolute blast.

It looks like the polarizing Platinum Games classic Vanquish is heading to the PSN next week. While there isn't a price set at the moment, the 360's Games on Demand service has it going for $19.99, so expect a similar pricing...
Platinum Games is a studio to admire. Its titles have never been huge sales successes, but the developer's status as a critical darling and a maker of great games, going right back to its Clover Studios roots, cannot be denied.
