Some decent titles. Long time members of PSN Plus will already have Simpsons The Arcade Game, showing what is in my opinion one of the more minor annoyances with the membership. We’ll lose the game after our subscription expires and there’s no way to participate in this sale if we’re really big fans of the arcade port (which is actually quite excellent if you haven’t tried it).

Journey is an interesting choice though I still recommend you save your money and buy the triple game collector’s edition that includes Fl0w and Flower. Pacman DX was a fantastic title that holds up even now. I haven’t heard similar praise for it’s brother in DX arms Galaga Legions. Still the demo was fun and it’s likely the only game I’ll be picking up this week. As I already own Duke Nukem ($2.50 in stores) and Metal Gear Solid Trilogy HD ($1.00 Door Buster). Quest for Booty is a great game and if I didn’t already have it on my UK account from the PSN Blackout I’d happily pick it up for $8. It’s short, it’s a touch linear, but it looks fantastic, controls great, and wasn’t over priced.

Are there any titles you plan to pick up or would like to suggest? How was Papa & Yo. The demo was interesting but not quite compelling enough to make me bite at $8 with my backlog. Care to try to convince me otherwise?

Play Mortal Kombat as Freddy Krueger

Apparently the last DLC character for the summer, which has been kept a secret until now, is no one less than Freddy Krueger himself. Scorpion is no longer alone in the depths of Hell and will be joined on August 9th by the nightmare haunting vengeful whatever he is.

He doesn’t seem to have the greatest set of attacks out there, but you can see all his “classic” moves in there. He’s certainly a very interesting choice of character, his fatalities look pretty fun. Any of you guys going to pick him up for $5?

MK9 Rain Gameplay with a Peek at his X-Ray

Cruising the interwebs, I came across the gameplay trailer for Rain, Mortal Kombat’s upcoming DLC fighter. Rain is a fighter from Mortal Kombat 3, and is being brought into the new age of fighting. Like his name would suggest, his attacks are water based; he also has a few attacks somewhat based on Noob Saibot. For the most part, his style is pretty fresh. He’s got some pretty unique attacks; what I gathered from the gameplay video hes heavy on lift attacks and control from there.

Well I don’t want to completely ruin it, so here’s the vid, enjoy!
