The Drop: Week of August 2, 2010 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

It’s an honor and a pleasure to inaugurate our newest weekend feature — a little something I like to call “The Drop.” The video gaming scene can be quite a riot at times, making it difficult to keep track of the latest releases for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. Fear not, I’ve been given the weekly duty to keep you up-to-date and well informed with the week’s new releases.


Before I school you with the PlayStation goodness, let me introduce myself. You may (or may not) recognize me from Destructoid, where I managed and hosted all their video pieces and features as the Editor-In-Chief of video. After an amazing two years with Dtoid I am happy and honored to call SCEA and the PlayStation.Blog my new home. If you follow our Twitter (which you should — @PlayStation) you may also recognize my PlayStation ink that I proudly wear on my left arm.

My goal is to enhance your PlayStation.Blog experience with all things video, and showcase the amazing talent and work that goes on behind the scenes with brilliant first-party and third-party titles, and even hardware.

Let’s hug it out now, my fellow PlayStation brothers and sisters, as you hit the jump and check out this week’s new releases.

Superstars V8 Racing

PlayStation 3

Superstars V8 RacingThe last time Milestone dabbled in the arts of racing games was back in 2006’s Corvette Evolution GT. Based on the Italy-based Superstar Series, this is the first game to feature car racing at the Portimao and Magione race tracks.

Disney Sing It: FamilyIf anyone is going to have a guilty pleasure when it comes to singing Disney tunes in the shower, it’s going to be this guy. Designed for up to eight players and one microphone, Disney Sing It: Family has a healthy collection of songs from films like Toy Story, Mary Poppins and Aladdin.

PlayStation Network: Earthworm Jim HD

PlayStation Network

Earthworm Jim HD — Dude, it’s Earthworm Jim! What more do I need to say? If you’re not familiar with the classic 16-bit title, then you’ve been missing out. But don’t take my word for it: Senior Media Editor for Gameloft Jen Kye schooled us all earlier this week when she announced its August 3rd debut on PSN. Earthworm Jim in HD? Sold.

PSP: Warriors of the Lost Empire

PlayStation Portable

Warriors of the Lost Empire — The fine folks of UFO Interactive Games deliver a simple but yet addictive RPG title. Warriors of the Lost Empire isn’t short of dungeons, NPCs and quick load times to boot (according to UFO Interactive Games). Your diverse taste in heroes will be rewarded when given the choice to be a Highlander, the Dark Seeker, the Amazon, or the Gladiator.

minis: Widgets Odyssey 2

PlayStation minis

Widgets Odyssey 2 — Aboard the S-Pace, our five heroes must once again thwart Yagor’s diabolical plans. Visit new planets, meet new creatures and play more mini-games as you guide our friends in their quest to save the cosmos.

Arctic Adventures: Polar’s Puzzles — Play as Polar in 50 brand new brain-freezing puzzles from the icy north on the Icetruck to the explosive Oil Rig. Will you solve them all and prove to be smarter then the average bear?

Very nice to have this feature, thanks; quick question about it. Is this a complete list or just highlights? I’m wondering since I didn’t see any PS1 stuff, PSP back catalog releases, DLC, etc?

Cool. Now we don’t have to wait for the store to update on tuesdays to be disappointed with the lack of games being released.

But I don’t mind that nothing is coming out on tuesday (I don’t count EJ since its basically a remake.) because scott pilgrim vs the world will be sick when it comes out august 10, though i was hoping Blade Kitten would be out on tuesday.

Good to finally have “The Drop”

Hey, a good start so far, can’t wait to see more from you! Welcome!

Welcome Rey! Good weekly article idea. I know there’s been some stuff in the past, like most Minis, that get released with little to no info available on them, so this helps a lot.
Gameplay videos would be welcome too, but please don’t replace the wordage with moving pictures. The key word is “supplement.”

This is awesome sauce. A heads up of upcoming releases is most certainly welcome!! Way to come out guns blazing Rey, glad to have you on board!

Also a PS podcast would be great to add to my list of regulars. I think a special guest appearance by Greg Miller would be a perfect episode one kickoff! Speaking of which, gotta toss this in here, Beyond!

as Jeigh pointed out already….. The voice of Earthworm Jim has changed. In the orginal, The guy who does the voice of homer simpson voiced EJ. He is not featured in the HD remix….

…Do Not Buy this game…. :)

Where can I find a copy of Superstars V8 Racing here in the U.S.??? None of the stores I’ve checked (Best Buy, Hastings, Target, Gamestop) even have it listed in their computer systems…

What happened to Superstars V8 Racing? I can’t even find it online at E/B or Amazon. Was the game cancelled?

Same question as a few others, what happened to SuperStars V8 Racing? No brick and mortar store has it that I can see, and it’s not on the PSN, bummer I was really looking forward to playing that.

spell_GO said:

Yes, where is Superstars V8 Racing??? I know it was released in Europe a year ago… I’m really interested in purchasing the game. I’m a big racing/motorsports fan and enjoy playing their games.

So, when is Superstars V8 Racing going to be released officially?
