PSN and Retail Releases for the Week of 8/31/10

After years of anticipation, Behemoth’s Castle Crashers is finally available on the PSN network. The distinct visual look and humor meld well with the side-scrolling beat-em-up with RPG elements. Up to four players can play at once and each player can build a character unique to their style. But unlike other games of its kind, don’t expect to beat it with your friends in one sitting. Castle Crashers takes quite some time to fully complete and rushing hurts the experience significantly so remember to take small bites and chew thoroughly. Sam and Max Episode 5 is now free with the purchase of the whole season. This is a good time to catch up if you’ve been away from the highly acclaimed point and click adventure for some time.


A free demo of Vanquish is available as well this week. The latest offering from Platinum Games is a frantic Gears of War clone that adds some interesting mechanics of its own. The demo includes a tutorial as well as a ten minute level with a boss battle. MAG players can now have access to additional character slots instead of committing to one of the three factions. These new slots do come at a price of $0.99 a month. Hopefully this payment structure will not become the norm in other games.
