As National Guardsman Tom Riley, you’re about to come face to face with the brutal Chimeran invasion force in the blistering shooter built from the ground up for the PS Vita. The latest installment in the  Resistance franchise focuses on an all-new mission that parallels and complements the existing Resistance storyline, as Tom Riley rises from an everyday hero to a legend of the Resistance.

Batman: Arkham City The Game of the Year Edition for PS3, includes Harley Quinn’s Revenge. Now more dangerous than ever and leading a homicidal gang of her own, she is hell-bent on taking revenge against the Dark Knight. Bonus content includes: Catwoman Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Arkham City Skins Pack and Challenge Map Pack. Also, the anticipated PS Vita title Gravity Rush, receives the demo treatment. Enjoy the gravity bending experience on this week’s The Drop.

PlayStation Vita

Resistance: Burning Skies (Also on PSN) – Resistance: Burning Skies is a unique Resistance experience developed specifically for PS Vita that takes full advantage of the system’s dual analog sticks and features an all-new hero and story written by William C. Dietz, author of Resistance: The Gathering Storm and Resistance: A Hole in the Sky.

Set in a tale of survival during the August 1951 Chimeran invasion of the East Coast, you take control of Tom Riley, an everyday firefighter from New Jersey who is thrown headfirst into the teeth of the Chimeran war machine, forcing him to redefine his notions of duty and heroism.

PlayStation 3

Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition – The Game of the Year Edition of Batman: Arkham City packages new gameplay content, seven maps, three playable characters, and 12 skins beyond the original retail release. Also included is the exciting epilogue, Harley Quinn’s Revenge — in this mission, players are sent back into Arkham City to face their final challenge as they interchange between playing as both Batman and Robin. Utilize each of the characters’ unique combat and investigative skills to uncover Harley’s vengeful plan and shut the gates on the urban mega-prison forever. In addition to experiencing a new storyline, fans can explore new environments and face-off against Harley’s all new gang of thugs.

The tiny kingdom of Arls, located on the northeastern border of the Arland Republic, is where Princess Meruru calls home. Ever since she was exposed to alchemy by famed adventurer Totori Helmold, all she could think about was becoming an alchemist. With Totori’s guidance, Meruru sets out to develop her home kingdom of Arls using the power of alchemy. On her way, Meruru will encounter new adventures, obstacles, mysteries, and friends, and discover what life is like outside the castle walls. How you choose to guide her through the advancement of her land will determine the final outcome in the tale of Atelier Meruru!

R3Y, Just picked up Burning Skies… I like it so far… being a firefighter myself, it’s cool to finally see a game with us in it…. also, I work with a guy named Riley and a guy named ‘Smitty”…

I see your old mate at Dtoid lambasted the game in his review…. but that’s nothing new…. I love resistance and this game is no different..

Learned my lesson the hard way. NEVER buy new on psn cause within 1 to 2 months that same game drops to 50% off or gets a price drop. I bought Mortal Kombat 3 weeks ago for 60 bucks on psn and then payed like 8 bucks for all the add ons on that plus add on sale not long ago and not the whole dam* thing is only 24 bucks? That really pisses me off now. I would’ve saved over 50 bucks waiting on that game. Thanks for informing us Sony and ripping most of us off 99% of the time on psn content. I’m NEVER buying a game day one again.

Oh and Jeff or the mods, stop being a*sholes and removing my opinions off the blog. I mentioned the comment I just left above days ago on this blog warning people to think before they blow 60 bucks on a new psn game just to see it drop a month down the road or get a 50% discount being a plus member and it includes all add ons. You never inform us this stuff may happen so e buy and get ripped off. Then I look through the comments today and that old comment warning about the corrupt ripping us off you do on psn and the comment is no where to be found. I’m really getting close to stop supporting you jerks. You say don;t be a jerk in the blogs well you all at the blog team treat us like jerks 24/7 so take your own advise and stop ripping us off, you lie 24/7 and always mess things up and we never hear a sorry or a post to fix it. Its always telling us oops and call customer service. Pathetic! If we speak out our opinion and you don;t like it you remove the comments. Pathetic!
