New Release Rodeo!

The biggest news this week is an oasis in the middle of a long desert of no new releases worth a damn. Fire up that PSP and download the demo for Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This?, then after you play for 3 minutes and realize that it is a frakking awesome game, go ahead and pony up the $19.99 to download the full thing from the PSN. Stop reading and go do that NOW. Then come back here and read more. Ok, I'll pause for a second to let you do that. Back? Good. I am sure you will agree Nippon Ichi has not only come up with the most confounding (and least descriptive) title in ages, but they can make a damn fun game too!

If you don't have a PSP, do not fret. There is something out there for you too (sort of), especially if you love ancient arcade games! Namco has released Namco Musuem Essentials for the PS3, which takes all those games from those Namco Musuem collections, throws away 90% of them, and leaves you with faithful recreations of Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig-Dug, Dragon Spirit, and Xevious. These ports faithfully recreate the boring graphics, droning sounds and repetitive gameplay of the original titles! Don't get me wrong, I grew up on these games and loved them to death in 1982, but 25 years later I feel there are better ways to spend my limited gaming time. But if you are a young pup who wants to see what we thought was the bee's knees back at the bowling alleys, then hustle on down to the PSN and plop down $9.99 in virtual cash and get your Pac on!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention this weeks DLC for Dynasty Warriors 6 : Empires. Available now on PSN is Desert armor set (for men), Paladin armor set (for women), Lion armor set (for men), and Shaman armor set (for women). There, I mentioned it.
