Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, Swarm on XBLA today

It’s Wednesday and two new games have been added to the Xbox Live Arcade. If you’re already familiar with this week’s PlayStation Store update, then neither of these titles should be a surprise to you.

First up is Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime, which is a top-down, twin-stick shooter starring a team of Ghostbuster rookies. It’s available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

Also available this week is Swarm from the developers behind Penny Arcade Adventures, Hothead Games. Swarm is likely the only platformer where you’ll control “50 pudgy blue morons” and it’s available to download for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).

More information on both titles can be found after the break. (more…)

Ghostbusters, PlayStation Move Heroes answer the call on PlayStation Store

Welcome to one of the biggest PlayStation Store updates ever!

It’s possible you’re too busy playing the newly released SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy Seals beta to notice, but Sony added seven games to the store yesterday and another two to the PSP store. But first things first, the Spring Fever 2011 sale continues this week with discounts on Tetris (now $4.99, regular price $9.99) and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (now $9.99, regular price $19.99).

As for the new releases, check ’em out:

  • Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime – A top-down twin-stick shooter starring the Ghostbusters and this week’s “spotlight update” to boot.
  • Swarm – An action platformer from HotHead Games.
  • Battle: Los Angeles – A first person shooter based on the hugely popular new movie.
  • Premier Manager – A front office simulation of Europe’s numbe one soccer league.
  • DC Universe Online – The superhero MMO is now downloadable.
  • PlayStation Move Heroes – Everyone’s favorite Sony mascots (except for Kratos) go head-to-head-to-head in this Move-powered crossover.
  • Legend of Mana – It’s not as cool as Secret of Mana, but it’s definitely a PSone Classic.

As I said, the PSP store also received two updates: Hoard, a dragon-powered “action strategy” title; and the increasingly illnamed Dissidia 012 [duodecim]: Final Fantasy.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime calls in March 23 release, new trailer

When there’s something strange in the neighborhood… Who you gonna call? WARP ZONE-ED!

I know, I know, it doesn’t exactly fit the rhyme scheme.

But that’s OK, because you can check out the new trailer for Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime and see how the real ghost chasers do it. No location is too scary… whether it’s inside a building, on city streets, in underground sewers or at the graveyard, the Ghostbusters bust ghosts because bustin’ makes me feel good.

You know what else makes me feel good? Knowing the game’s release date. According to a Tweet by publisher Atari, the game will be available to download on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on March 23. A PC release is also planned, but no date was listed.
