Gonna try SS demo. Notvsure what the problem with PSN was since EU got there update early this morning ( early am ) but NA not untill around 5 pm est. Not a deal breaker but Sony needs to be more consistent about update times and more open in communicating when there are delays.

What exactly is Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen? Is it a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma or DLC or what? I haven't really been paying attention but was interested in getting around to Dragon’s Dogma some time.

@Splat It's a re-release of Dragon's Dogma that includes a large expansion called Dark Arisen. It apparently also fixes up a few things as well, like pawns talk less and menus load faster.

Not the greatest of weeks though if you prefer digital over discs Injustice is awesome. And that GTA sale is pretty good too.
