The Demos section is the star of the show here, with the anticipated Mortal Kombat for PlayStation Plus subscribers and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters for everyone. Sports fans should definitely check out the latter as it’s doing some really interesting things.
A lot of killer DLC has also arrived, with new content for Dragon Age II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: The Porsche Unleashed pack we’ve been talking about. Even our (not so) beloved Mindjack got an add-on.
Lastly, you might want to be watching the sales, as the PSN Gamers Choice winners have been announced and these excellent titles are half off for PlayStation Plus subscribers and a third off for regular users. Hit the jump for the highlights and head to the PlayStation Blog for the full list. (more…)
Square Enix has let loose on content for Mindjack, the recently-released sci-fi shooter for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Two new map packs will soon be available for download on each console’s online service. The first pack was actually released yesterday, on Valentine’s Day. D’awwwwww, how sweet. The second pack is scheduled for March 8th.
Each of the two collections will cost $7.00 (or 560 Microsoft Points) each, and will each feature three new maps which allow the player to continue the fight against the endlessly-invading Nerkas soldiers.

Ever since Square Enix teamed up to publish games by other developers, the quality of the company’s branded output hasn’t been quite the same. This logic is proven with the recent release of developer FeelPlus’ title Mindjack. The attempt to make it a unique multiplayer shooter was well-intentioned, but once Mindjack is put to the test, it crawls like a handicapped, elderly secret agent. (more…)
What this week’s new releases lacks in quantity, it makes up for it in quality.
Sony’s second Sackboy adventure on the PS3, LitleBigPlanet 2, will be released this week. The sequel will add even more level creation options as well as include an expanded single-player campaign.
As PS3 owners get their second crack at Sackboy, they’ll get their first chance to experience BioWare’s Mass Effect series with a PS3 port of Mass Effect 2. Sticking with the science fiction theme, Square Enix will be bringing their body-hopping shooter Mindjack to the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Finally, PopCap Games has shrunk down Plants vs Zombies for a DS release.
The full list of the rest of this week’s new releases can be found below. (more…)
