New PS3 and PSN Releases for the Week of February 7, 2011
Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3 and PSN releases for this coming week today, as follows:
Tales From Space: About A Blob - Tales from Space: About a Blob is a game about a race of alien blobs that land on an Earth-like planet and start eating everything around them. Eating is just what Blobs do - they can't really help themselves.
Although the Blobs aren't really out to hurt anyone, mistrustful humans greet them with hostility. Players will interact with the game environment using unique growth and absorption-related control mechanics, experiencing the world at vastly different scales as they progress. Both single-player and co-op play will be supported.
Plants vs Zombies - Help! The zombies have invaded! And don't look now, but they're coming for you next! You'll need to think fast and plant faster to fend off this mob of helmet-clad, pole-vaulting zombies.

Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll - Trinity is an action RPG set in the world of Zill O'll. You lead three characters of different types, Aleus, Daguza, and Zelena, through a massive story that features plenty of optional sub quests.
The game's combat system is party-based, with all three characters using swords, magic, and other attacks to defeat the sometimes massive enemies. The fields of play themselves contribute to the action, changing as you cast magic and break down columns. As an example, you can freeze a lake to walk over it, or pick up a column that's fallen due to your attacks and use it as a weapon.

Not a great update, but there are some gems there. I never can get enough Plants vs Zombies, so that's an insta-buy for me.
I have a feeling the developers for the Hoard game really don't know what they are doing. They just recently had a half price sale for the game, and now they are putting out a demo. Seems a little backwards to me...
