104w ago - Free Realms Producer Jose Araiza has announced today news of a PlayStation 3 snow days celebration with details below, as follows:
Do you love the winter snow but not when it comes to shoveling it? Are you tired of holiday shopping? Take a break and see what awaits you under the Gifting Tree as we celebrate Snow Days in Free Realms!
Snow Days brings to life the legend of the Gifting Tree. Known as the oldest pine in Sacred Grove, the tree is the enchanted center piece of Snowhill and blooms with presents every winter.
Folks from all over Free Realms are encouraged to gather around its base every day while it is in bloom to receive an abundance of magical gifts, and until all the presents have fallen from its branches.
The selfless nature of the tree spread the spirit of giving throughout Sacred Grove, and began the tradition of Winter Holiday.
You can begin your quest by meeting Candi Ivy, a Winter Holiday celebrator who looks after the Gifting Tree in Snowhill. After providing you with the Gifting Tree's history, Candi Ivy will launch you into a fun quest to collect the presents under the tree.
Additionally, for those of you who are members, you will have a chance to earn even more gifts by displaying your giving spirit and helping others through...
104w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has announced that beginning today Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue Expansion are available on PSN alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Tables starring Ghost Rider, Moon Knight, Thor, and the X-Men will be available for Marvel Pinball in the brand-new Vengeance and Virtue table pack, coming to PlayStation Store later today for $9.99!
Owning the original Marvel Pinball is required for the V&V expansion - but if you don't already have that critically acclaimed four-pack, you can download it now for FREE for a limited time as a PlayStation Plus member (more on that at the end).
Let's take a brief look at each of the tables in the Vengeance and Virtue pack so you can understand how we've captured these dynamic concepts and the personalities of each character.
The Ghost Rider table captures the atmosphere and apocalyptic visuals from the comics of the past few years, inspired largely by his 2006 series as well as Jason Aaron's 2009 "Heaven's on Fire" storyline.
The table is set up like a stunt show set from Hell, with Johnny Blaze front and center on his custom chopper and the Hellfire shotgun at...

To quote: Time for some Friday fisticuffs now, as Access Episode 11 drops onto YouTube starring Soul Calibur V as Game of the Week.
In a thorough hands-on with Namco-Bandai's sidestepping brawler, the team try out the fresh-faced trio of newcomers that is Patroklos, Leixia and Natsu, plus get stabby with guest star Ezio Auditore. Don't worry - old favourites Mitsurugi and Voldo are given worryingly special attention too.
Elsewhere on the show, Access pays a visit to Special Effect - a gaming charity set up to help disabled gamers play the games they love by making custom-built controllers. Charity founder Dr. Mick Donegan gives us the lowdown on the work the organisation has already been doing, plus you can hear how Prime Minister David Cameron got thrashed by racing enthusiast Shaz Hossain.
Access also chats to trouble-happy twins James and Oliver Phelps - otherwise known as Fred and George Weasely from the Harry Potter movies - as we celebrate the launch of The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 on blu-ray. You'll never guess what James (or is it Oliver?) nominated for his favourite ever game. No really, you never will.

107w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that two new imports, namely Dezaemon Plus and Blockids are now out on PlayStation Network alongside some video footage of each below.
To quote: Well we're a few months into our new venture and we've put out a lot of gaming in that time. Dezaemon Plus! and Blockids will mark the fifth and sixth additions to the MonkeyPaw classic European game portfolio on the PlayStation Network. And we have a lot more surprises planned for our retro-gaming fans.
But we'd like to ask your assistance. We need you to tell your friends about what we're doing and get the word out. We know our core fans are dedicated gamers and that you've picked up some titles already.
But we need a bigger response so that we can influence more Japanese companies. We need to show them there is a viable market in Europe and that licensing is worth their effort. It is like voting with Euros. Spend more on the candidates of your choice!
Here's a good choice for shooting fans. Dezaemon Plus! is a chance to play game god. You get to create a game using a robust game editor that allows you to form sprites, level designs, boss characters, music and more. Use parallax scrolling and other game design techniques...
