PlayStation Store Update: PixelJunk or Die

pixeljunk_logo

When a buddy of mine got his first PlayStation 3 a couple of years back, he asked me what he should get. After the requisite answers of Valkyria Chronicles, Demon’s Souls and the Uncharted series, I pretty much knocked him off his seat with the sheer amount of enthusiasm I had for the PixelJunk series of games.

This week, if he doesn’t download them now, we’re not friends. Seriously, these games are too good to pass up. For the sale price of $1.00 for PixelJunk Eden, PixelJunk Monsters, PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap and PixelJunk Shooter; while some of the newer titles like PixelJunk Shooter 2 and PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe for the PSP are on sale for $4.99. As an added bonus, Monsters Deluxe will be playable on the PS Vita on May 14.

The sale is to commemorate Q-Games’ 10 year anniversary and PixelJunk’s five years. Seriously. Just do it.

Outside of my fandom, there’s the release of Datura, a game “inspired by film narrative and immersing players in an experience never seen before.” A demo for Spec Ops: The Line is also out this week. We had a hands-on preview of it at PAX East and now everyone can check it out.
