117w ago - Today Sega Digital Marketing Coordinator Mia Putrino has announced that Renegade Ops is now live on PlayStation Network.
To quote: It's been many, many months in the making, but as you'll have noticed yesterday, we've unleashed Renegade Ops onto PSN as part of the PSN PLAY promotion.
We're incredibly pleased to be part of this new promotion, and hope that you are ready to help General Bryant and the Renegades defeat the tyrannical Inferno and thwart his dastardly plans.
Hopefully you already have a good idea of what the game is about, you may remember I did ramble at length in previous blog posts, but if not allow me to give you a quick reminder; Inferno is threatening to detonate bombs in capital cities around the world, unless his demands are met, and it is in the hands of the Renegade Ops team that the safety of the world now rests.
General Bryant and his crack team are taking their range of vehicles, weapons and various specialities to the battlefields to destroy the Inferno threat once and for all.
If you haven't had the chance to try the game yet, then please help yourself to the trial that is now available via PlayStation Store; we're confident that once you've had this game in your hands for a couple of minutes that you'll be converted.

117w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has unveiled the sequel to Arcade Essentials dubbed Arcade Essentials Evolution for PSN alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Almost a year ago we released a Minis called Arcade Essentials. The game was very warmly received by the players, so we decided to produce a sequel with 5 new games. So here it is - a Minis called Arcade Essentials Evolution.
As was the case with its predecessor, Arcade Essentials Evolution is a collection of 5 arcade games, remakes of the classic arcade hits of the 80s that we all know. Each game consists of 50 levels, so there is quite a lot of gameplay time here.
We made minimalistic visuals with lots of special effects, so that they would feel like we are in real arcades. To get an idea of how it looks like and plays, please check the trailer:
First game is an enhanced version of a game about asteroids. In the beginning, levels are quite easy, however as you progress further, difficulty increases and new bonuses and asteroids types start to appear.
For example, there is a bonus that allows you to fly through the planets destroying them as you move forward. There are indestructible asteroids that you cannot shoot....
