Journey, Warp, Shoot Many Robots, more added to PS Store

After a week of PlayStation Plus exclusivity, thatgamecompany’s Journey is now available to download from the PlayStation Store for all PS3 owners. And if our review is any indication, you should buy it right now. Leave work if you have to.

Also available this week are a pair of PSN shooters: EA’s warp (which was part of last month’s XBLA House Party) and Ubisoft’s Shoot Many Robots. I guess the question is, do you want to shoot humans who’ve cruelly kidnapped an alien or do you want to shoot alien invaders as the last hope for humanity?

If you’re interested in some gaming on the go, the Vita Store has added a pair of new games: Reality Fighters, an augmented reality fighting game (co-starring Mr. Miyagi!), and the latest entry in the Ridge Racer racing franchise. Excuse me… RIDGE RACCEEERRR!!!

Hit the jump for more details on all of this week’s releases and travel over to the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

Warp arrives on XBLA for the House Party

The 2012 Xbox Live Arcade House Party begins today with the release of Trapdoor’s adorable (and adorably bloody) puzzle-platformer Warp:

Warp is a puzzle based stealth action game where gamers play as Zero, a loveable yet lethal, little orange alien with a big score to settle. Abducted by a villainous General from his home world and taken to an underwater research facility, Zero must plan his ultimate escape by relying on his arsenal of special abilities.

Warp is available to download for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

Warp release date announced for PC, PS3

Trapdoor recently announced the PC and PS3 release dates for their upcoming game, Warp, via their Twitter feed.

The title will be coming to the PC and PSN on March 13, nearly a month after its release on the XBLA. It’s the first game in the latest XBLA House Party, available for Xbox 360 users on February 15 for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

I’ve been excited to play this game since last year’s PAX East. It promises to be a great downloadable game!

Warp will arrive first for the XBLA House Party on February 15

Before today, we knew that Microsoft planned to throw another ragin’ Xbox Live Arcade House Party and that it would begin on February 15.

Today we learned which order the party guests will arrive in and how much they’ll cost (the metaphor of the House Party being an actual party kind of breaks down at this point):

  • February 15: Warp (800 Microsoft Points)
  • February 22: Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (1200 Microsoft Points)
  • February 29: Nexuiz (800 Microsoft Points)
  • March 7: I Am Alive (1200 Microsoft Points)

As in years past, Microsoft plans to reward gamers who purchase every House Party title. This year, 800 Microsoft Points will be yours if you invite every House Party game into your home by March 13.

Alan Wake, I Am Alive lead this year’s XBLA House Party

Toga! Toga! Toga! Toga! Break out the kegs and your finest bed linens, Microsoft is getting ready to hold another Xbox Live Arcade House Party this year.

While an official announcement is still forthcoming, Microsoft has added a House Party 2012 trailer to the XBL Marketplace highlighting this year’s games. The guests are a bit of a gloomy bunch, but futuristic warzones and darkness-based demons will do that to any life of the party:

  • Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, the downloadable continuation of Alan Wake’s battle against Mr. Scratch.
  • I Am Alive, the long-in-development post-apocalyptic game where you have to figure out how to survive “The Event.”
  • Warp, the story of a teleporting alien who is trying to escape from a government lab.
  • Nexuiz, a futuristic shooter taking place in a Victorian arena.

A start date for the 2012 House Party promotion wasn’t announced, but House Party 2011 ran from the middle of February through early March with one new release a week. I expect a release similar schedule this year.

And if you’re away from your Xbox, you can check out the trailer at Joystiq.
