184w ago - Today Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has offered a preview of FirstPlay episode 28 today, which arrives on the PSN store this Wednesday.

To quote: We've got another packed episode this week, with an exclusive PSN trial of the brilliantly bloodthirsty side-scrolling RTS Swords & Soldiers, and our last bit of PlayStation Home Top Gun attire - the one you've been waiting for, Maverick's helmet.

Show me the way home. Home! I've been waiting weeks to say that.

We've also got another strong line-up of games, with reviews of EA's rebooted blockbuster Medal Of Honor, and muddy-as-hell puddle sim FIA World Rally Championship.

We've also got a behind-the-scenes preview of EA Sports' MMA, and a round-up of other releases featuring Jon Daly's ProStroke Golf, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

And there's more - a huge hands-on multiplayer preview of Call Of Duty: Black Ops, including interviews with developer Treyarch, our top ten list of the best weapons you can build in Dead Rising 2, and a look at your latest skin-tearing Skate catastrophes.

On top of all that we've got a review of Swords & Soldiers - luckily, it's not rubbish - and another round of screenshot galleries, this week featuring Batman Arkham City, Ratchet...

185w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a FirstPlay Episode 27 preview today, which arrives this Wednesday via PSN.

To quote: We've got a big, big episode of FirstPlay for you this week. Firstly, we've got more things to give away - extra Top Gun stuff for your PlayStation Home avatar and an exclusive FirstPlay dynamic theme, built with our own occasionally fair hands.

Then we've also got a stellar line-up of games. Two of the year's epicest adventures are given the full HD review treatment - Enslaved: Odyssey To The West and Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow. If you're a fan of Uncharted, or God Of War, or just good games, you'll want to take a long, hard look at what this pair have to offer.

We've also got a verdict on the slightly less stellar Quantum Theory (funeral march should be playing right about now) and a reviews round-up including HAWX 2, the actually very decent RUSE and Madden NFL 11.

On top of that we've got the best of the PlayStation Network, this week featuring an online review of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, a look at the latest minis, and reviews of Blade Kitten and the Move and 3D-enabled Flight Control HD. Land. LAND YOU IDIOTS!

186w ago - Sony's Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 26 today, which arrives on PSN this Wednesday for subscribers.

To quote: I've spent a hazardous (certainly to my marriage) amount of time this week hammering Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which is three things: huge, amazing, and not reviewed in FirstPlay until next week, so I'll shut up about it now.

So what is in episode 26 of FirstPlay, available on the Store from this Wednesday? We've got some more Top Gun gear for PlayStation Home - Goose helmet, kids - and another chance to grab our exclusive Joe Danger PSN avatar.

We also have two huge reviews, with in-depth HD verdicts on EA's footballing juggernaut FIFA 11 and Codemasters' beautiful F1 2010, as well as a look at pec-tastic blockbuster Prince Of Persia on Blu-ray.

And there's loads more, including a countdown of the top ten PlayStation games of all time, as voted by Official PlayStation Magazine readers to celebrate the magazine's 50th issue, and a personal take on why MLB The Show is the best sports game on PS3 from the mag's editor Ben Wilson (apparently not because he's rubbish at FIFA. I know, I was surprised too).

We've also got a review of PixelJunk Racers: 2nd Lap, a look at the latest movies...
