Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on Oct 31, 2010 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Happy Halloween! Not only do I bring you this week’s new releases on your favorite PlayStation console, but I bring you a collection of last minute Halloween costume ideas. Zeus! Ares! Athena! Oh my. Your favorite mythological Greek God-killer, Kratos, returns on the PSP this week with God of War: Ghost of Sparta. Stayed tuned this week when we debut my latest video feature when I visit the set of “God of War: Game Director’s Live,” where the game directors of God of War reunite and dissect the making of their epic saga. David Jaffe’s and Cory Barlog’s PlayStation 2 classics God of War and God of War II are remastered in high definition and bring the Blades of Chaos to the PlayStation Network this week.

The-Drop-Main-Header

Not big on dressing up with you family’s ashes for Halloween? Maybe dressing up as the adorable EyePet is a good alternative to the blood spilling and vengeance of Kratos. Grab your PSP, PSP Camera and your EyePet and take your virtual critter out to the park this week, when EyePet: Your Virtual Pet comes scratching at your door. The PlayStation horizon is filled with games this week branching from the PlayStation 3, PSone and even the PlayStation 2. Ditch the candy corn and get ready for delicious PlayStation Halloween treats in this week’s The Drop.

Nothing is what it seems as each adventure reveals a deeper and more sinister conspiracy.

Face undead frat boys, cops and strippers, each with their own special brand of death and devastation – and ways to die! While these rotting monsters wander the streets of a desert sin city craving sweet, succulent brains, your enemies have come equipped battle hardened armed vehicles, including heavily weaponized muscle cars, hot rods, and more.

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2The second game in this high-flying, fast-hitting, and intense versus battles series, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2 promises over 90 characters from the massively popular anime franchise. Dragon Ball Z fans can rest assured that the destructible environment, and character trademark attacks and transformations will be true to the series.

@Rey Gutierrez, for a senior social media specialist you are rather quiet. I was under the impression that the power of social media was to get directly in touch with your audience.

Mind replying to the comments so far? Else this blog post is little more than a combined press release, very web1.0 like.

So all the people complaining about no GT5 must have just joined the blog.. Welcome all new users! GT5 has been postponed again, accept it and move on.

Those attacking Rey personally need to take an extra dose of STFU. It’s not Rey’s fault that Polyphony pushed GT5 back again, do you all understand that?

@Rey, keep up the great work man and don’t let these ignorant children get to ya. Also, no Patapon3? :P

If anyone at Sony is reading this, shame on you. Where in the world is GT5? I have been an avid Playstation patron since PS1 however my relationship with your company is slowly dwindling. If we do not have a release date for GT5 by the end of the first week of November, then I am canceling my GT5 pre-order. Sony, you really need to get your act together. For God’s sake, listen to your customers. First you promise a release date of Nov 2nd for the US, then you brake this promise with another promise of delivering a new release date by the end of October. Well, here we are and you haven’t delivered squat. Sony, Sony, Sony, it’s all about the money, right?

I understand we were never promised a new date, but if the game is to release before Christmas like PD and Sony said it would, then it’s about time a date was decided and we are informed.

It’s very frustrating for the GT community to be supportive of the game all this time only to be kept in the dark on simple matters and passed aside like we are merely customers of the franchise, not fans.
