New FirstPlay episode incoming - let the FirstPlay team tell you all about it...

Before we get started with the regular content list, let me offer you a welcoming gift in the shape of another two PSN avatars, this time to tie in with ace PSN viking %26lsquo;em up Swords %26amp; Soldiers and both free with this week%26rsquo;s episode of FirstPlay.

Speaking of which, episode 42 of FirstPlay will be on the Store this Wednesday, and it%26rsquo;s a cracker, with two huge sci-fi sequel reviews as we deliver verdicts on Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2, an expert guide to tuning your car in Gran Turismo 5, and a review of tie-in animation Dead Space: Aftermath.

We also sit down for a chat with Kaos Studios, the team behind upcoming shooter Homefront, check out some of the latest titles to appear on the PlayStation Store, and review PS Eye scrapper Kung-Fu Live. On top of all that we%26rsquo;ve got new screenshots from Resistance 3, Red Faction: Armageddon, Bodycount and more.

So that%26rsquo;s free stuff, two of the biggest games on PS3 this year, behind the scenes access, movie reviews and a round-up of the PSN, all for just 99p, or even less if you buy a 12 week subscription for %26pound;8.99.

We%26rsquo;d also like to remind you that you can stay in touch with all things FirstPlay by following us on Twitter at @firstplay_uk and on our Facebook page: FirstPlay (official).
