This week's update is going to be a bit different to previous weeks; it'll be a bit more personal than usual... though I'll go into more detail after discussing this week's content.
Tim Schafer's latest creation Costume Quest hits the store this week, and it's the perfect title for unleashing your inner child and embracing Halloween with pure unadulterated joy (that you would usually get scorned for as an adult).
No matter how I try and describe this title I'll most likely do it a disservice, so just check it out and make up your own mind (Ed: you could also watch the video interview with Tim and Tasha Harris here).
Swords and Soliders also joins the ranks this week, and any game that can say (taken straight from the marketing material) "blend ninja monkeys, attacking Aztecs and brutal Vikings with everything you love about real time strategy games and you've got Swords and Soldiers" must be worth a look, right?
Not only does this game have local and online multiplayer, it also supports 3D too, so definitely something for you with swanky 3D TVs to be taking a look at.

If you have any heart at all, then you will have spent the last few months giddy with excitement over the coming release of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1.
I know he's hurt us all in the past, but now we can officially move on, because this new game hurtles us straight back into the old-school action you know and love.
If you did not play the Sonic games back in the day on a Master System or Mega Drive then you won't have the same fuzzy nostalgic feeling that I (and many others) have, but I played this new version to completion the other day and it was everything I wanted.
If you've never played a Sonic game before, then prepare yourself for... well, I'll just let the mighty blue one speak for himself.
That's not all this week though, EA release the animated comic/meta game/mini games/unlock mechanism that is Dead Space Ignition. This is a glimpse into the world between the two main games, and you'll receive unlockable content for use in Dead Space 2 when it releases.
Continuing the sci-fi theme, The Force Unleashed 2 is now available in demo form, so you can practice your lightsaber and force skills on pretty much...
166w ago - SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store PS3 and PSP updates today, as follows:
We have one full game for you this week in the form of Ferrari: The Race Challenge.
Fully featured with (up to) 16 player multiplayer, and a single player tiered career mode, you can show off your prowess with a range of some of the best vehicles ever manufactured (no Ferrari didn't pay me to say that).
For your PSP needs we have Phantasy Star Portable 2 available, and the Essentials range keeps growing with nine additions this week (this necessitates an exclamation mark)!
I also feel the need this week to highlight one of the latest minis added to the roster; Ace Armstrong Vs. The Alien Scumbags. Not only is the name fantastic, but it looks like a pretty nifty old-school shooter (like Mum used to make).
Modern Warfare 2 saw a week's price promotion on the Stimulus and Resurgence Packs start yesterday, and we have another week of the recent Special Offers to go.

167w ago - SCEE PlayStation Store Manager Mike Kebby is here with today's European PSN game store PS3 and PSP updates today, as follows:
There's a certain game featuring a certain Lara Croft releasing today- Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light.
That's not the only content releasing this week featuring a truly iconic character though; the demo for Ghost of Sparta hits the store, so now non-Plus subscribers can try the latest instalment featuring the angriest man (god) ever seen in gaming!
That's not all for PSP owners, UFC Disputed 2010 brings its incredible MMA action to the store, as well as there being a new GTI Club title, and two new additions to the Essentials range released.
Not forgetting that this Friday FIFA 11 will be released digitally too. That's quite a lot of handheld action for one week right?
One of my favourite games of the past year see's the fourth and final piece of DLC released, with Claptraps New Robot Revolution hitting the world of Borderlands, so grab three friends (this game is great single player, but best played co-op) and enjoy this madcap action.
There's also a smattering of new demos, minis, add-ons, the ModNation Racers soundtrack and more; for the full list you know what to do.
