A PlayStation 3 exclusive headlines this week’s US PlayStation Store update, but there’s some meaty DLC and a couple of full games to tempt you.
The Twisted Metal multiplayer demo is well worth a look, especially if you’ve never tried the series before – like Eat Sleep Play always says, think of it as jousting, fighter jets, or duelling rather than racing and shooting. There are eight vehicles, all with unique weapons, and both free-for-all death match and a team mode called Nuke. Plus, for the nervous, there’s a challenge mode for getting some practice in.
Elsewhere, the Kane and Lynch games are available for download in full. Both hail from Hitman developer IO Interactive, but the second is significantly less popular. Mini Ninjas and a PSN game called Puddle are up, too, along with a Naruto game for PSP.
On the DLC side, Soul Calibur V has a number of music packs as well as the first set of add-ons for its character customisation suite; the new Dead Island pack is up; there’s a collection for Need for Speed: The Run; and you’ll find a whack of new Rock Band 3 songs.
