27w ago - Drinkbox Studios Production Assistant Matthew Johns announced today that new Guacamelee costumes and both PS3 trophies and PS Vita trophies arrive tomorrow.
To quote: It's been two months since Guacamelee launched on PS3 and PS Vita. Thousands of you have uppercutted, slammed, and derped your way through the evil forces of Calaca onto our leaderboards.
Hopefully the blisters on your thumbs have healed enough so you can enjoy the DLC we're releasing tomorrow. New costumes! New Trophies! And at only $1.99, you could buy it twice and it's still cheaper than your favorite premium coffee...
First up: the Identity Swap costumes, starring Juanita or Tostado! (Tostado is PS3 only.)
Juanita wears blue tights held up by a championship belt, and a tank top with a flaming, flying heart logo on it. Tostado (not to be confused with Tostada), wears matching pink shpants and luchador mask, and has dead bandaged-up blue skin.
These two deal extra damage with punches/kicks, but have weaker throws. You'll get a new 'Heroine-ism' trophy when you defeat Calaca with Juanita.
Have you ever wanted to run around wearing a chicken...

28w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has gone hands-on today with Media Molecule's new PS Vita adventure game entitled Tearaway below.
To quote: Media Molecule have proven themselves the masters of cuteness and community creativity, constructing a passionate fanbase worldwide through the madly successful LittleBigPlanet series. But what happens when the house that built a Planet sets out to create something completely new?
Maybe I should rephrase that. Their new project, Tearaway, isn't completely outside the studio's comfort zone. It's still adorable, inventive, and a true showcase of its platform's capabilities. Built with PS Vita in mind, Tearaway makes impressive (but not excessive!) use of the integrated camera and rear touchpad to craft a more tactile and immersive world.
Case in point: You'll occasionally come across transparent surfaces marked with PlayStation symbols, an indication that you can interact with that area via PS Vita's rear touchpad.
Sometimes this means tapping on the back of your Vita to beat a drum, which will launch iota or atoi (your fearless paper protagonists) far into the air above. Other times, it means poking your finger straight into the game to protect your companion from incoming enemies, or to move an object that's...

In these new quests, you will see two new boss characters called Dullahan and Behemoth and a new map called Caverns of Goliath.
There was once a knight whose name was known the world over... But it was not his abilities that had made him famous. Indeed, he was viewed with curiosity, not respect. Many thought him downright unsettling; it was the way in which he did battle.
While most warriors took pleasure in striking their enemies and avoiding their blows, this knight was the exact...
