Another week brings with it another PSN Store update, again smaller than normal with only a small handful of games, demos and content, but there could still be something there that takes your fancy. As for me, it’s been yet another week of online Red Dead Redemption madness. What I find when playing this game online in Free Roam mode is the lack of competitive nature. Sure you are playing with and against other people, but you get the feeling that everyone is just playing to have some fun. Even when you are in a heated gun fight with other players, you feel that everyone is just having fun. Until the new games I am looking forward in the upcoming months, Red Dead Redemption is more than enough to keep me happy.
That’s quite enough of that though. Onto what you are all reading this for, what’s included in the PSN Store update this week.
SAM AND MAX THE DEVILS PLAYGROUND EPISODE 4 BEYOND THE ALLEY OF THE DOLLS FREE WITH SEASON PASS
And So for those with the season pass to The Devils Playground adventure, this week brings Episode 4 Beyond The Alley Of The Dolls. The freelance police continue on their multi episode adventure. As this chapter begins, our heroic duo find themselves under attack from a crowd of zombie like cloned Sams and Maxs. Our heroes do the best thing they can think of, barricade themselves inside a diner. What happens next is anyone’s guess. What we can be sure of however is the fact that the story continues as it has from the beginning, with much tongue in cheek humour that these characters and the world in which they live is full of. So, as of this week those of us with the full season pass can pick up this episode right now.
KANE AND LYNCH 2 DOG DAYS SINGLE AND MULTIPLAYER DEMO FREE DOWNLOAD
The demo for Kane And Lynch 2 offer players the chance to try out both the single player and multiplayer versions of the gritty and brutal crime based shooter, giving players a taste of the upcoming title. Kane and Lynch 2 is still a third person shooter with all the usual run, cover and shoot gameplay that you would expect from it. But to make it a little different, the developers have told us that the game will be viewed by the players as if through shaky handheld cameras and CCTV security cameras. It’s an original idea and will be interesting to see how well it plays, which you now can thanks to this demo.

The pack gives you the chance to dress our cute little friend up as super heroes such as Spider man and Thor amongst others. Here is the full list and as usual when it comes to Little Big Planet you can buy these as a pack or pick and choose.

MODNATION RACERS SHERIFF SIRLOIN PACK Â£1.39/â‚¬1.75
Sheriff Sirloin is this weeks ModNation Racers DLC. The character himself, Sheriff Sirloin, is as the name suggests a sheriff and the Sirloin part is because he is a cow and he comes with stamp-able straw, chaps and a cowboy hat. Like most content for this game he also comes with a kart. The sheriffs vehicle comes in the shape of an old beat up truck, just the kind of thing you would imagine a cowboy to be driving. This vehicle can be broken down into three parts that can be used to build your own vehicles and these include the old battered truck body, rope steering wheel and the saddle seat.
ZEN PINBALL MARS TABLE Â£1.59/â‚¬1.99
Zen pinball is still one of, if not the best pinball game available on the Playstation and the fact that they are continually releasing new tables ensures we pinball fans continually have a new challenge. The latest of these is based around the planet Mars and the exploration of it. I have yet to play the table so I cannot really comment on it, but if it is as much fun as those that came before it then it could well be worth checking out.

And with that we bring to a close another weeks worth of store updates. So far it’s been a couple of quiet weeks, but I believe it’s only a matter of time before we are hit with another huge one. For now, the small updates mean we have more time for gaming and I am feeling like a little more Red Dead. However, Uncharted 2 has been tempting me for the last couple of days, so the chances are that I will be slipping that disc into my console once again for some fun and frolics with Drake and Chloe. Until next week, I once again wish you all a good week and happy gaming.
