on the shelves

08/07: Monster Madness: Grave Danger (metacritic) – port of the 360 title, with new features (and a new subtitle) but nothing that actually fixes some of the game playing problems of the first game, and the visuals are really bad.

Qore #3 ($3, or $25 for a yearly subscription) – DC Super Heroes preview, invite into the Resistance 2 beta

Downloadable Games

PS1 Classics (3 weeks)

Game Demos

Game Videos
– PS3 Home (E3)
– The Last Guy (BTS)
– Star Wars: the Force Unleashed
– Tomb Raider: Underworld Trailer
– Madden NFL ’09 (3: E3, 20th Anniversary Details, Adaptability)
– TNA iMPACT (trailer/AJ vs Joe)
– Dead Space (Dev Diary #5, Animated Comic #4)
– AST Dew Tour (4)

Movie/Blu-Ray Trailer (3 weeks) – probably just moved to the video service and I haven’t paid attention. I’ll drop it after this week.

PS3 Theme
– PlayStation Home. This is less a theme and more a lottery ticket to get in the beta. How they choose who gets in isn’t completely specified. The only thing mentioned is “activity on the Playstation Network”. It stands to reason you’re more likely to get access to a future method of selling you stuff if you’re already buying from the store.

PS3 Wallpaper
– Disgea 3: Absence of Justice Wallpaper (x3)
– Tomb Raider (SHARK)
