50w ago - Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray has announced that Munch's Oddysee HD officially hits PSN today!
Below are the details, to quote: Munch the Gabbit is now in HD! The team at Just Add Water, with help from the programming staff at Four Door Lemon, worked hard over the last 18 months to bring you an updated version of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee on PS3.
Gamers met the crazy planet of Oddworld back on the original PlayStation, with Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus quickly becoming classics.
If you played those games, you'll remember the reluctant hero's destiny to rescue his fellow Mudokons from corporate slavery at the hands of Glukkon Companies Rupture Farms and SoulStorm Brewery.
Munch first burst onto our screens in 2002 (on that other console that sounds like egg-fox), following in the footsteps of the now-classic Abe games. Another reluctant hero, the diminutive Munch, is the last of his kind.
His mission: To escape from the evil Vykkers Labs, save all the lab animals and liberate a can of Gabbiar, using the eggs to get his species going again. All with the help of Abe, of course!
We have no doubt that one look at these screenshots will bring all those childhood memories rushing back. Just don't cry on...

51w ago - General Manager of RingZero Game Studio Franck Blaevoet has announced that their addictive puzzler Burn the Rope singes PlayStation Vita consoles beginning today!
To quote: We are happy to announce the release of Burn the Rope for PS Vita. Burn the Rope is an game where you - as the title implies - must burn as much rope as possible in each level.
To start burning the rope you simply tap PS Vita's front touchscreen wherever there is rope. Once the rope starts burning, you control the direction of the flame by rotating the screen.
The flame always burns up and it will burn out if it runs out of rope. The speed at which the flame travels along the rope is determined by the angle of the rope. You can also control the flame using the touch screen, by rotating the PS Vita or you can use the rear touchpad if you don't want your fingers to block the view.
In addition, you can pinch on the rear touchpad to zoom in or zoom out. This can help if you have really big fingers or are all thumbs. Oh, it also helps if you want to be more precise in starting the flame.
As you progress through the levels, you will encounter bugs crawling along the rope, different flame colors, and different colors of rope. Different bugs react differently to the flame: For instance, the...
