After some thought we decided to open up the giveaway to USA, Canada, Europe & South America. Please note that the PSN codes for the games must be redeemed on the EU PlayStation Store. But we are willing to …
Things slow down a bit, and we are getting waaaaaaaay less releases when compared to the totals from the last couple of weeks.
We get one release for each of Sony’s services/platforms: One for PS3, one for Vita, one for PSN, and one for the minis range of games.
Oh, and FIFA 12 is now available as a digital download.
Full list of releases, coming right up!
Zipper Interactive is showing the Vita some Socom love with Unit 13, and it gives us a glimpse of what 3rd person shooters will be like on the handheld. Rather than having a deep story, Zipper has decided to give the player a set of 36 missions and 10 High-value targets, which can be done solo or online with a friend or random stranger. It is a great look at what “Could be” on the Vita. Sadly, it doesn’t deliver on what it set out to achieve.
Everyone hates HD collections until the one series they love comes along and then suddenly their attitude changes. For quite a while now, I have refrained from buying any HD collections because I viewed them as a cheap tactic to earn a few bucks. I passed on the God of War remakes, I didn’t even bat an eye at the Tomb Raider games, and in the end, even the Team ICO collection didn’t sway my stance. However, the Jak and Daxter HD collection is the series that finally won me over and made me rethink my views on the situation.
When I first started replaying the games, my biggest fear was that my nostalgic childhood bias had lead me astray, and I would realize the games really weren’t that good (or worse, were just plain horrible). Thankfully, I was completely and utterly wrong. The Jak and Daxter HD collection is what every HD collection and reboot so far should have been. It contains three fantastic games, a true HD upgrade, trophies, and a low price. The games have racing, platforming, shooting, exploring-something for everyone.
If you’ve never played the games before (and there is really no good reason to have EVER passed them up if you owned a PS2), now is your chance to jump on board and trek through the story. The Jak and Daxter series creates incredible worlds and fills them with lovable and quirky characters. They all have that unique and illusive quality to them that makes you remember the games years later.
A world in chaos and a war that seems to be almost lost. Monsters have risen from the sea and the titans have ravaged the world, endangering all that live. But there is still hope: one man, a nameless hero, takes it upon himself to save the world. Only the fearless pirates seem to know a way to deal with these beasts from the deep. Will he succeed in obtaining their secret artefact?

Epic Mickey is the only game I have played on the Wii all the way through. It was a great game, and I am extremely excited to see part 2 coming to the PS3.
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, will allow drop-in, drop-out 2 player co-op, and be fully dualshock and PS Move compatible. You will play as Mickey, with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and for the first time ever, as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. Mickey and Oswald will return to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions, and work together this time around. “The new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.”
