Sony is ushering in 2012 with a “12
for '12” promotion, enticing PlayStation Network and PS Plus
members alike with significant discounts on a dozen of PSN's newest
and most buzz-worthy titles...
Oddworld: Strangers Wrath HD
will be releasing December 27 on PSN, with plenty of
immediately-visible improvements over the original. Stewart Gilray,
CEO of Just Add Water, says his company has been working on the port
“one way or another for around 15 months.” As well as bumping the
whole game up to 720p, character models and environments have been
overhauled, as you can see here...
has announced sale prices on nine titles across PlayStation Network
and Xbox Live, offering cheap retro reissues of some solid classics
and newer titles alike. PSN fans get their discounts immediately,
whereas XBLA subscribers have to wait a week. Knowing what happens
when XBLA players get impatient (namecalling, griefing, possibly the
Apocalypse), 2K's stepped in with some bargain content available
you haven’t tried cloud gaming with OnLive,

31, you can play Orcs Must Die, Fear 3, Metro 2033, and Amnesia for free.
Become a fan of OnLive on Facebook for an unannounced fifth free game that’ll

Remember how PSP Go was supposed to let you transfer UMD games onto the
system's hard drive? Well, it never happened. The closest we got was a
reward scheme that let you get some free games if you registered any
single UMD, even though the message that flashed up on the screen said
'you may now download this game from the PlayStation Store'. Well, it's
all coming back, only this time with Vita, if rumours are to be
believed. Only this time, suggestions are that you can pay a small fee
and transfer any game.
of Thrones: Genesis developer Cyanide has released a batch of shots for its
upcoming Of Orcs and Men. Produced in partnership with Faery: Legend of Avalon
developer Spiders, the game is Cyanide's first shot at bringing a large-scale
new IP to the fantasy RPG arena. The game's hook rests on a simple perspective
shift: those big green guys? That's you and your crew. The little pink dorks
with the swords and armor? Those bastards are the enemy...
Today Sony via the PlayStation Blog
announced its new PlayStation Network promotion. Titled “Only on PSN,” the blog
post highlighted multiple downloadable offerings like this week’s Eufloria and Rochard,
plus the Infamous 2 DLC Festival of Blood. And tucked away at the bottom, given
barely a mention was the real big news: Starting tomorrow a handful of
underrated PS2 games will be available for download, including staff favorites
like Odin Sphere and God Hand...
Must Die! will be out on October 5 for XBLA and October 12 on Steam and other electronic distribution platforms. The game is a blend of tower
defense and third-person action, similar to Double Fine's mech-assault game
Trenched, where you take the role of a powerful soldier in the battlefield,
deploying defenses and fighting at the same time. Orcs Must Die!, however, is
in a brightly colored medieval fortress — tower defense that's, logically
enough, in a tower...
Could it be? Could it really be? Yes. Yes it could. Sit yourselves down people, and regulate your breathing, because it looks like Valve's epic Portal 2 ARG might just be about to drop the motherlode.
That motherlode? Half-Life.
Yeah. Half-Life. Finally, blessedly, mercifully, after our years of frustration and faith, it looks like sweet, sweet Half-Life might be set for its next reveal. My feelings? Incandescent, explosive joy, obviously, and also a hint of smugness, because I called this one in an excitable semi-drunken tweet to Tyler Wilde the other night. If you want my (non-booze-related) reasoning for that tweet, and the evidence backing up this latest potential development, click on.
