All Articles: Stacking

Stacking DLC coming early next month

Stacking is one of our favorite digital titles to have kicked off 2011, so we’re understandably delighted to learn that the game will be getting a DLC add-on entitled The Lost Hobo King. This episode sees Charlie helping his artistically-inclined hobo friend Levi and his Uncle Rufus find the fragmented pieces of the lost crown so that Rufus may ascend to the throne of Hobo. The all new environment and story come with new challenges, hi-jinks, over fifteen new dolls, and trophies/achievements. No word on pricing or specific dating, but the pack will come to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in early April.

That’s pretty soon, so if you haven’t checked out Stacking yet, be sure to get the demo or read our review linked above.

Microsoft is gearing up for their second annual Xbox Live Arcade House Party promotion, but they still added a pair of new games to the XBLA today.

Stacking, Explodemon, Plants vs Zombies added to PlayStation Store

Microsoft may be planning a five-week blowout of big games beginning next week with the Xbox Live House Party, but Sony has decided to dump a massive amount of cool games onto the PlayStion Store in a single day.

Leading off this week’s PlayStation Store update is Double Fine’s Stacking, perhaps the finest (AKA the only) game about Russian stacking dolls. Best of all, it’s free to PlayStation Plus subscribers. What a deal!

Also available this week is Explodemon, a platformer with an exploding hero that is totally not at all similar to last year’s XBLA game ‘Splosion Man.

Finally, Sony has made Tales From Space: About a Blob available to all PSN users and PopCap has fertilized the service with their hit game Plants vs Zombies.

More details on all of these games can be found after the break with even more game add-on news available at the PlayStation.Blog. (more…)
