This week PSN is giving away Rag Doll Kung Fu for free. Unless you’re an idiot that hates free things go download it. For those in the dark its by the same guys that made Little Big Planet, and plays a lot like Super Smash Bros. DO IT.
So, last night I picked up Flower from the PSN. I’ve only played the first 2 levels, but I was really impressed with it. Normally when games use Sixaxis control it kind of makes me want to barf. I couldn’t get used to it in Wipeout, or Motorstorm, but in Flower it really works. The goal of the game is to fly around and tap unbloomed flowers in the landscape and when all of the ones in the area are bloomed life and color is restored. Its a really simple premise, but it translates to really fun gameplay. Visually, this game is ridiculous. every blade of grass is visible, and waves around as you pass by, the colors are amazing, and the lighting is fantastic. Flower is the perfect game to play after getting a Platinum trophy in Fallout 3 (woo hoo!). Oh, and its only $10.
I just got an email from Sony saying that I’m in the Home Closed Beta. I am excited to give it a shot later today.
[Update]: I played around with it last night. Though I’m not certain how much of it is under NDA (didnt read the legal stuff), so I wont say too much about it. It seems pretty cool, though. I am curious how they are going to deal with more people when its fully released. The spaces arent big enough to have everyone on PSN on at once, so they must have some way to send people to different home servers or something, maybe based on location? Who knows.
This week’s PSN update is pretty expansive. There are 2 new downloadable games: Siren Bloodcurse, and 1942: Joint Strike. The Pixeljunk Eden Demo is also out today, which I can’t wait to play.

Sony has just rolled out the ability to link your PSN ID to playstation.com. This gives you a little portible ID badge as well as the ability to check your friend’s list. I dont currently see a way to message your friends on PSN but its probably on the way.
Pretty lame update this week. But that’s to be expected the week before E3. Hit the jump for the full list of updates.
Last night I bought Super Stardust HD off of PSN. It is (I believe) the only game that has already been patched to include trophy support. I beat the first 2 worlds and ended up getting 3 trophies for it. The game itself is really cool, and much more fun than the demo suggests. I think once trophies catch on playing games on the PS3 will be much more attractive to people who are currently “Achievement Whores” on Xbox Live.
This Week’s PSN update has some pretty decent stuff. I decided not to include all the downloadable songs for games. I am downloading the Hot Shots Golf demo right now. For t he full list of updates from the playstation blog hit the jump.
This week’s PSN update is up. It went up later than normal and contains a bunch of good stuff including their new service Qore. Qore is pretty cool. I subscribed to the year subscription and got Calling all Cars for free. After watching the first episode, I like it and look forward to more. The only problem I have is that every time you go into a section there is like a 30 second ad. Annoying for something you’re paying for. Anyway, the video features are pretty great for people like me who love documentaries and interviews.
This week’s update… is pretty bad. There is really nothing that I’m interested in. Eh… Take a look for yourself. After the break.

This Week’s Playstation Store update is live, and this week its not bad. Not great! but not bad! At the top of the list is probably the Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit demo. Not a huge fan of DBZ anymore, but hell, I’ll give it a shot. Hit the jump for the full list. Continue reading →
