To quote: Hey folks, I'm here today to announce a new PSN title coming this year! I'm very excited to introduce When Vikings Attack for PS3 and PS Vita.
In this all-action fighting adventure, a battalion of Viking invaders, 1200 years late to the party, are causing havoc in your town.
Imagine getting together a posse of local citizens: a construction worker, a butcher, a policeman, a pastor, and a schoolboy, then ripping up a phone booth or picking up a car,and hurling it at the advancing Viking hordes. That's the sort of crazy action you can expect in this totally new and original PSN title for PS3 and PS Vita.

Will you know what to do when well-meaning scientists unleash a brain-rotting plague or when a curse causes long deceased loved ones to claw their way out of earthen pits?
Of course not - contending with the constant demands of today's society doesn't leave most of us with time to think about things like whether a raid on an abandoned grocery store is best done alone, with a group, at night... or not at all. So here are a few study aides to help you defend yourself against a necrotizing neighbor in the ensuing chaos.
First on our list is Left 4 Dead, a multi-player co-op zombie shooter that forces you to rely on your fellow survivors to make it through a campaign. Left 4 Dead differs from other zombie games in its dynamic enemy dispersal, meaning when the dead rise - there will be no way to predict where they will lurk. Unfortunatey, Left 4 Dead is also currently unavailable, having been pushed back to November for release. (So should the unthinkable happen before then, you have my humblest apologies.)
Up next: Resident Evil. Early games focused on the conservation of items and ammunition because of limited carrying capacity. With Resident Evil 4, the focus on conservation...
