6w ago - Mighty Rocket Studio CEO Francois Potentier announced today alongside a video trailer that Final Exam is coming to PlayStation 3 on November 5th, 2013.
To quote: Hey, I'm Francois. I run Mighty Rocket Studio, and I'm pleased to talk about Final Exam with you. There are nine people in the studio, and this is our first game. We created the studio for this game. So we hope that you'll love it!
Final Exam is a beat'em up in which your goal is simple: survive. You were going to a class reunion. It should have been a fantastic party... and you suddenly realize that there are monsters everywhere... and they're after you.
You can choose from 4 characters that are all classic, teen archetypes. Brutal Joe is the quarterback of the group. He likes hitting and everything related to raw power.
Cassy is a street dancer (I'm sure she was a cheerleader in school), and her special attacks are dance moves. Nathan is a geek. He loves technological stuff (and he's my favorite). The last one, Sean, is the handsome guy... but the bad boy. He likes playing with firearms.
Each character has unique, powerful attacks based on their skills. Each skill has 4 power levels, up to the ultimate attack that blasts everything...

7w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with details on the new PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases for the upcoming week below today!
To quote: Don your cape and cowl - the Batman Arkham series is readying its return, along with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It's a tremendous week of superheroes and cybernetics in this week's Drop.
Lauded for its gritty visuals and stellar play, the Arkham games have garnered a huge following in the world of gaming. That tradition is sure to continue with Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to Rocksteady's revolutionary first two games in the series.
The latest Batman features the intense, single-player experience you'd expect from an Arkham game, but will also include a robust online suite for gamers to compete within.
But Batman isn't the only dark hero making a comeback this week. Adam Jensen, with all his powerful augmentations, slinks back to PS3 in Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut. An enhanced version of the already well-loved original, the Director's Cut includes The Missing Link DLC, as well as other improvements.

7w ago - Sony's Jawad Ashraf of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PlayStation Store updates today, which include The Wolf Among Us, Muramasa Rebirth and more below.
To quote: TellTaleGames are at it once more with an all new episodic series based on the Fables comic book series (from DC Comic/Vertigo). The Wolf Among Us - Faith is the first of a five part series from the same team that gave us The Walking Dead.
You won't need to have read the comic as the game precedes the events in the first issue. So jump straight into a new game where your choices will affect the story.
Vanillaware. It may not be a name many know, but you should definitely be able to identify their games. Last Friday saw the release of Dragon's Crown (developed by Vanillaware, of course) and this week there's another drop dead gorgeous treat in Muramasa Rebirth.
Muramasa is a 2D sidescrolling action RPG with gorgeous hand drawn artwork that really stands out on the Vita's screen.
Check the rest of this week's line-up below, as well the Cross-Buy and Horror sales that begin today.
