Another big day for the PlayStation Store as indie platformer Thomas Was Alone, zombie melee-er Dead Island: Riptide, and movie tie-in Star Trek are now available to purchase with your download dollars. Like the rest of the games in Sony’s Spring Fever promotion, Thomas Was Alone is a Cross-Buy title, meaning you’ll be able to pick up the PSN and Vita versions in the same download.
Also available this week is Ubisoft’s World War II dogfighter, Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII; the latest game in the Soul Calibur series, Soul Calibur V; Capcom’s standalone Dragon’s Dogma expansion, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen; and the retro shooter God Mode.
Finally this week, Sony has added a pair of Vita games, the ninja-riffic Draw Slasher and the ridiculously titled Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R… I mean, seriously now… there are four extra modifiers in that title. Even Capcom won’t go that far.
Hit the jump for more details on all of these games and a few others (including a new PSP game!). And be sure to visit the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)
Today is my Friday! Woohoo! Take that, Thursday. And to top it off, I’ve actually got a pretty decent deal to share with you!
The weekly ad at GameStop has some deals, including a deal to get a free guide with select games. The games are Dark Souls, Max Payne 3, Ninja Gaiden 3, and Soul Calibur V. That’s a great selection of games with free guides, especially Dark Souls. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to have your spirit completely crushed, I would say this is as good a time as any.

The 2012 video game year can officially begin… NOW! It’s been a long (and mostly dry) month, but publishers are finally ready to start unloading their big guns.
This week we can look forward to Final Fantasy XIII-2 Square Enix’s latest RPG sequel; Soul Calibur V, the next entry in Namco Bandai’s fighting franchise that still burns; and NeverDead, Konami’s dismemberment action game.
You can check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Hold onto your hoods – the new Soul Calibur V trailer is about to blow you away. The newest character is none other than the master assassin from the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Even if you’re not a fan of the bold Italian killer, watching the artistic way in which he does away with his enemies is graceful and intense. Check out the trailer, and be sure to add January 31, 2012 to your calendar, which is when you can pick it up on PS3 or Xbox 360.
A tale of souls and swords… and you! Well, at least a name of your choosing. Namco Bandai Games America is holding a promotion that lets fans name a non-player character in Soul Calibur V, the next iteration in the weapons-based fighting series.
All you have to do is go to soularchive.jp/npc_recruitin, fill out a character name and fighting style, and answer a few questions related to Soul Calibur. Some of the questions include your favorite tactics, whether or not you prefer online play, and they even ask if you think the game’s director, Daishi Odashima, is annoying. So if you’ve ever wanted to fight a character named “FUZZYDEATHBUNNY” who wields a snake sword, you have until 11 PM on August 5, 2011 to make that dream a reality.
A few days ahead of the game’s E3 debut, Namco Bandai has unleashed the first gameplay trailer for Soul Calibur V. Get your first glimpse of the tale of swords in the trailer above!
Soul Calibur V will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
