To quote: "The first game, Dragon Age II, isn't due to hit retail shelves until March 8th, but hackers have managed to get their hands on an early leaked copy. After some experimentation, some people have reported success in getting the game to run on 3.55 with a simple modification to the version string in the PARAM.SFO along with a repackaged EBOOT.BIN.

Baseball fans will be disappointed to hear that the second game to require 3.56 is MLB 11 The Show. Like Dragon Age II, The Show isn't supposed to hit stores until March 8th. However, some users are reporting that certain stores have broken that street date and sold copies early. Little examination has taken place yet on MLB 11, so it is still unknown...

PixelJunk Shooter 2 Hits PSN Today with New Online Battle Mode

50°
190w ago - Q-Games Ltd President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has confirmed that PixelJunk Shooter 2 hits PSN today with a new Online Battle Mode.

To quote: The sequel to the technically and critically acclaimed PixelJunk Shooter will be with us later today!

It continues where the original left off, leaving you trapped in the deep dark bowels of an enormous alien entity.

Fight through the backwash and encounter the weird and terrible monsters that are living in the alien's gut, force your way through putrid stomach acid and strange slippery bubbly stuff, and be totally grossed out by thousands of iddy-biddy insects that come pouring out of strange pulsating larvae when you mix water with it.

Yes, this is a game you probably want to avoid playing immediately after eating, and you might feel a little queasy the next time you are staring down Sparrow-on-a-stick (a Kyoto traditional cruisine).

But wait... PixelJunk Shooter 2 isn't all about dieting and worm control! It has vast new worlds to explore that aren't part of an organism's digestive track, and new technologies too, such as the Hungry Suit and the Light Suit and a whole load more.

Use the new R3 spin-attack to wipe out chains of enemies at a time and revel in the destructive mayhem...
