More fun in kickstarter-land:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1005365109/jane-jensens-pinkerton-road-2012-2013-csg

Jane Jensen is the person behind the Gabriel Knight series, among others. A third of the way funded already, so this one looks like it'll go.

Finally (for the non-clicky types, it's the Ratchet and Clank HD collection)

No Deadlocked which is a disappointment, but the delay on the NA version is due to a "surprise". I hope it's a downloadable version of Deadlocked, but expect it to be an exclusive beta of Overstrike

Speaking of the Souls franchise..

The US multiplayer servers for Demon Souls will be going down on May 31st. This is pretty unfortunate, since the game is only 3 years old and apparently that's a lifetime in console terms, but you'll have all May to finish up your MP stuff.

If only it were Bulletstorm 2...it could be a Mac exclusive and I'd probably still buy it.  I'd still like to know what they spent on that game, considering it sold decently well and still lost money.
One Man Band Riffs.  18 riffs, over 600 served, since 2009.

Coming this winter to the PS3:



Play Station AllStars Battle Royale

It's a fighting game with Sony characters, and a few others. Yes, you've seen games like this before, although I don't know where. (cough) But since PS3 players can't play that one, well, here's one for you.

Announced characters so far include Kratos, Radec from Killzone, PaRappa the Rapper, Sly Cooper, Sweet Tooth and a Fat Princess. The above pic also shows Cole from inFamous, What'shername from Heavenly Sword, and I think that's Daxter & Jax, Ratchet and I guess that's supposed to be Nathan Drake on the left bottom. No idea who the far left guy is though. Levels include ones based on Little Big Planet, Patapon, Buzz and God of War.

The guy on the left is a chimera, the aliens from the Resistance series.

I knew they were making something that was like Smash Brothers, but then I saw the video.  I had no clue they were doing a shameless carbon copy.

Everyone wants to be Nintendo. No one wants to admit it.

Naughty Dog almost made one, but decided on making The Last of Us instead. Everything I've seen about TLOU makes me think this was a good decision.

Still it would be nice to have a new PaRappa and I would love more Jak and Daxter.  Then again I would also like to see a new Crash Bandicoot game so there are a lot of series out there I would like to see make a come back.
