PSN Today: Max Payne 3, Double Dragon Neon, La Pucelle Tactics, more

There’s a lot to recommend in this week’s PlayStation Store update. The biggest new release is the downloadable version of Rockstar’s Max Payne 3, which can be purchased for a limited time for $44.99. It’s such a steal, Max Payne might arrest you… if he was still a cop…

Also available this week is the return of the Lee brothers in Double Dragon: Neon. The WayForward-developed beat ’em up is a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers (along with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) and a demo is available for the rest of us that want to test the waters before dropping $9.99 on the game.

It may not be of interest to many, but this week’s PS2 Classic is La Pucelle: Tactics. Nippon Ichi’s prequel to the Disgaea series hooked me hard back in 2004. If you like Strategy RPGs, give it a shot.

Hit the jump for the complete list of this week’s new downloadable games (including FIFA Street, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, and Red Johnson’s Chronicles 2) and travel over to the PlayStation Blog for a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

Anomaly: Warzone Earth invades XBLA on April 6

When 11 Bit Studios decided to bring their “reverse tower defense” game, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, to platforms beyond the PC and iOS, they realized that they needed to create the perfect control scheme. After testing an old joystick with suction feet on the bottom, a Virtual Boy, the Minority Report gloves, and several others, they were stumped. A breakthrough in the process came thanks to the tireless efforts of Mr. Dr. Ed. The 11 Bit scientists found their perfect control method in the Xbox 360 controller. You can relive the entire process thanks to the “documentary video” above.

So now, the developer is happy to announce that Anomaly: Warzone Earth will be available to download from the XBLA on Friday, April 6 (what’s with all the Friday release dates?).

Personally, I think the Twister controller had potential.
