Tactics Ogre is half price on the EU PlayStation Store

One of the reasons why I picked up a PlayStation Vita, other than submitting to gadget lust, was the prospect of catching up on those games I had missed out on by never owning a PSP. Some great titles, like Patapon 2, Half Mi...

PlayStation Store is back with a stampede of updates photo
PlayStation Store is back with a stampede of updates
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Good news: The PlayStation Store is back online in North America! Bad news: There's so much new content that was put out all at once that it's simply overwhelming. Not saying it's bad news for the consumer, but it's just a shame that all these games are basically trampling over each other for proper exposure.

While the Store is back, there might be some spotty issues while the service is fully restored. Destructoid editor Conrad Zimmerman can access only some of the Store content at the moment. You should also know that the Welcome Back freebies aren't online just yet. Grace Chen on the PlayStation Blog states that the free games are "in the final stages of testing and will be available to download soon."

The PlayStation Blog has the full list of new PlayStation Plus content; price changes; new downloadable games for the PS3, PSP and PSP minis; demos; PSone Classics; add-ons; like, a hundred Rock Band songs; music; avatars; and themes. All the games you can fully purchase are listed below so you don't have to sift through it all.

Whiny Hamza News: I think Nick needs his own show, because his new releases videos are hilarious.
Companion Block News: Someone made a Minecraft mod in which you can play Portal. It's total Reddit porn.
Frustratingly Vague News: We don't know when the PSN will be fixed, or who hacked it, but hey. Free games.
Noisy Machine Gun News: There's a rumor about the next Call of Duty game, the top-secret "Project Colossus." It probably won't involve any Russian X-Men.
Fat Kid News: Burgertime: World Tour is a game about hamburgers, we have the new trailer and oh! What's this--
Contest News: Follow @monkeypawgames, and tweet at them why you're excited about #burgertime, they might give you prize. Do it!
Powerglove News: This week's movie club movie is The Wizard, which is actually about video games, and is on Netflix instant watch. (Oh, look! Free trial memberships!) Send us your video responses before Friday, and we might put your precious lil' face on the intertubes.

Also, special thanks to Neil LaPointe, who mailed us awesome toys that I can play with while Tara's talking boring girl stuff or Minecraft or whatever.
