Hi everyone, it€s Store update day and the second title in the PlayStation Network PLAY series is released today €" The Baconing €" the third instalment in the saga of Deathspank, defender of the downtrodden and thong enthusiast.

You are DeathSpank, a hero and the ultimate Dispenser of Justice. You must defeat the Anti-Spank and his army of Cyborques, before they cast an evil shadow over Spanktopia. Discover exciting new worlds and battle hordes of enemies as you search to unlock the secret within the Fires of Bacon.

Your free gift with this title is an extra character, Roesha, who will be available to download from next week€s publish €" you can grab it from the PLAY Offer section on the Store, where you€ll also be able to pick up your pre-orders.

Also new this week, we have Elevator Action Deluxe from Square Enix, a retro-reboot of the classic spy, document collecting arcade game from days of yore. Well, 1983 was not quite the days of yore but it was a long time ago in videogames! The original arcade game is included in this release so you can see what all the fuss was about.

We also have the PSN version of 4 Elements HD,...

To quote: PlayStation Store (via PS3, PSP and Media Go)

Yes, the first of the PlayStation Network PLAY titles launches this week in the form of Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition. If you haven€t already pre-ordered the title you can grab it from today and get the GILL character unlock as part of the package.

Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition, one of the most revered, deep, and sophisticated fighting games of all time, now takes the battle online. Fighting game fans new and old owe it to themselves to experience this mastery of 2D fighting.

Throw down with enhanced HD-filtered graphics, arcade-perfect gameplay, GGPO seamless multiplayer, YouTube replay sharing, new art, and I am assured there is no Capcom Online DRM (for those of you who were worried).

If you have pre-ordered, after the publish today you can visit the PLAY section and download a bundle of the Trial/Unlock/DLC at no cost. You should also be receiving an email in the next day or two as a reminder.

And for those of you in Italy, Capcom (after discussion with us) has taken the decision to hold back the publish of SF III for you guys, which...
 

They Do Not Die 2 v0.3 PS3 Homebrew Game Update Arrives

139w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his homebrew game They Do Not Die 2 to v0.3 for PS3 Custom Firmware and JailBreak users.

Download: They Do Not Die 2 v0.3 PS3 Homebrew Game

To quote: Here is another updated version of They Do Not Die. This new update Most notably features destructible walls and the ability to save the game state. Game saves are fairly large and consequently rather slow to create and load but that will improve over time.

I’m still undecided about what the subtitle should be so keep posting any ideas you have. Right now I’m leaning towards going with Collateral Damage (suggested by Griffunt) or Life After Death (suggested by Annelies)

On a less obviously related subject does anybody know how to go about measuring the passage of time with millisecond precision (or near enough to it for it to be usable when calculating the frame rate) when developing for PS3 with PSL1GHT?

What has changed:

  • You can save the game at any time and obviously also load that save.
  • The on screen text now scales so it no longer fills an overly large portion of the screen at low resolution.
  • In addition to your gun you now have a rocket launcher.

PlayStation Store (via PS3, PSP and Media Go)

The star of the update this week is of course a large selection of Gamescom related videos for all the hotly anticipated titles being shown €" you€ll find those in their own section as usual.

For downloadable titles this week, several retail games get the digital download treatment, including Dead Space and Far Cry €" but if you€re into fast-paced little numbers, you€re going to adore Cubixx HD €" arcade puzzle action, where the simple goal is to cut away enough of the cube to move to the next level.

This title supports split-screen local multiplayer, has loads of different game modes and looks simply fantastic €" if you€re a fan of the genre you should definitely give it a go and even if you€re not I urge you to try the demo.

There€s a also a few more minis this week, including a Fighting Fantasy adventure, a selection of DLC for LBP2, InFamous 2 and more, and a selection of themes.
