97w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates today, as follows:
This week, the folks at Konami are excited to bring you the new PSN Release Puddle! Relying on the physics of water and other fluids (hot magma anyone?) in ever-evolving environments, you'll need to guide the fluid flow with precision to get to the goal.
While it seems like a simple concept, the gameplay requires a fun puzzle-focused mentality where you must tilt the entire environment, balancing the push of each fluid's unique properties with the pull of environmental factors of gravity, friction, and obstacles.
With PlayStation Move compatibility, and a demo available as well, Puddle is set to make a big splash on PlayStation Network.
You may have seen EA's news predicting the Super Bowl winners with Madden NFL 12. If you haven't picked up this year's edition yet, you can set up your own Super Bowl match yourself as it's now available in the PS3 Full Games category.
Joining it is also Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, its predecessor Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, and Mini Ninjas. PlayStation Plus subscribers will have access to a 1 hour rental of all of these via Full Game Trials as well.
Twisted Metal fans; the big day is almost here. Although you won't be able...
