Dance with death

Sony’s hoping to brighten up your week with a couple of doozies as part of the latest North American PlayStation Store refresh. Cloudberry Kingdom and PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD both scored highly in our reviews, meaning that there’s no excuse for not adding the titles to your PSN basket as we type.

PLAYtime

The lineup of this year’s PlayStation Store PLAY promotion takes centre stage in North America this week, with all four titles available for pre-order.

Alphabetical animals

Quick, someone give the studio behind Aabs Animals a copy of Letterland – doesn't the developer know that it goes Annie Apple, then Bouncy Ben, then Clever Cat? We’re waffling in order to fill out words because there’s nothing really of note in this week’s North American PlayStation Store update. We suppose that Coconut...

The one we nearly forgot

We sort of forgot about the weekly PlayStation Store update amidst the E3 2013 madness. Fortunately, we remembered in the nick of time – while we were eating a bowl of strawberries as it happens. It’s a good job that it jumped to the front of our mind, too, as this is a surprisingly good one, with The Last of Us, Tekken...

Don't forget

Capcom’s likeable action adventure Remember Me may be the biggest new addition to this week’s North American PlayStation Store update – but it’s by no means the only noteworthy arrival. Other debuts include Limbo on the PlayStation Vita, alongside a couple of free applications for the portable platform. Shall we get down to...

After several strong updates, it was only a matter of time before expectations came crashing down to Earth. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so flat that we’re struggling to pick out a highlight. We suppose that the demo for Insomniac Games’ upcoming Fuse is interesting, right?
