129w ago - Team17 Software Ltd Head of Design John Dennis has announced today alongside a video trailer that Alien Breed 2: Assault hits PlayStation Network on Tuesday.
To quote: With Alien Breed 2: Assault launching on the U.S. PlayStation Store on Tuesday December 7th, we'd like to share a handy list of things you may not know about the game.
It's the direct follow-up to the PSN game Alien Breed: Impact. What's more, it's the middle entry in a trilogy of downloadable PS3 titles that reinvent Alien Breed, a series which has roots dating back to 1991.
The game is an action-packed top-down science fiction shooter where you must conserve ammo, scavenge for gear, and upgrade your arsenal to survive against a vast alien threat.
We've added a new Survivor mode. This can be played in single-player or in two-player co-op (online or local), and you must resist endless waves of intense alien horde attacks in specifically designed arena environments. Get competitive and compete on the Survivor leader-boards!
Survivor Mode hits and tips: Before playing Survivor, take some time in the single player mode to learn the layout of the map. It's also crucial to keep moving, as you'll be overrun by aliens quickly if you stay...

129w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Adam Grant has announced that Pac-Man Championship Edition is hitting PlayStation Minis today alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Although PAC-MAN's 30th Anniversary celebration has already seen the game immortalised twice - first in the form of the PAC-MAN Google Doodle, then by induction into the Video Game Hall of Fame - nothing might be as exciting as what the developers at Namco gave fans of their legendary game this August: less a celebration of the past than an evolution in the game they love.
PAC-MAN Championship Edition, the latest in PAC-MAN's pellet-eating adventures, amps up everything the classic franchise is known for without abandoning any of the charms that defined it as a three-decade Arcade staple.
Boasting six game modes with unique mazes and time-limits, PAC-MAN Championship Edition fuses dynamically changing mazes and dazzling visual effects with a new time-based gameplay system. As in the original PAC-MAN game, PAC-MAN must eat all pellets whilst avoiding Ghosts.
New to PAC-MAN Championship Edition, however, is a unique and addictive element...
