I have Pain - it's fun. I bought and beat Ratchet and Clank QFB. I may get Super Stardust eventually.

I can't wait for this one, Soldner-X: Himmelsstürmer. Pixy(pours one out) got me interested a few months back. Looks like it's coming in October.

This looks very cool indeed! Where did you see this announced for October?

The Pain update is live as of a few hours ago. Trophies are included and you can purchase the Amusement Park add-on through the game.

How much is the PAIN add-on?
I believe Jeopardy should arrive today also.

Really?
I was playing Pain last night. Do I have to start from scratch or does it recognizes my previous trophies?

In game trophies are different from the new update that was released. So now we have double the trophies to score.

Have you, or has anyone else, tried it out yet?

Between the lower pricing of the Xbox and the huge desire to play Braid, I was mighty tempted to get a 360.

But, I read Braid will be available on PSN "eventually". Has anyone seen anything that will narrow that window a bit?

The only ones I've bought and been thoroughly happy with are two of Capcom's most recent: 1942 and Bionic Commando. They're a fantastic take on the classics I hadn't played in years, look beatiful and are packed with extra content beyond the main game. There should be more PSN stuff like these...

I had PAIN at one point, but got bored with it pretty quickly because it was much more restrictive than I'd hoped for. Also bought Loco Roco the other night since the preview video looked so cool, but I hated playing it, so that was a waste of money. Didn't care for the Pixeljunk or Last Guy demos, but Stardust and EchoChrome were solid and I might consider buying those eventually. Anyone want to sell me on Everyday Shooter? The preview video looks cool and I think the concept is interesting, but there's no demo, so I'm wary.

I'm definitely picking up R&C:Quest for Booty, but I'd like to finish playing Tools of Destruction first.

I don't know which Pixeljunk game you're talking about, but most people seem to really like Monsters. I have it but I haven't played it yet, I'm waiting for the trophy patch.

Any reviews of the Jeopardy! game? Wondering how challenging it is, and if there's any repetition of questions over the course of a few games.

I was reading people are getting repeated questions after 3-4 games. I believe there are only 2000 questions (so I can imagine they would repeat relatively quickly). You figure 60 questions a game or so.

I plan on getting it via a GAMESHARE, but not for $15.

Anyone else get the Pain Amusement Park? I gotta say, it's a heck of a lot of fun with a lot more to aim at. The downside is that without cars rolling around, it's much harder to keep long chains going; I often find myself stopping on walkways. Still there are plenty things to target and it's fairly awesome to cling onto a ride and then let go at the peak swing to keep flying in a different direction.
It's certainly worth $5.99 to download. It really makes the game fresh again.

Thanks ... that's very helpful. That's exactly what I was afraid of ... I'll skip this one.

I heard the same thing. I'll have to pass on it.

I got it and played it for a little while. If you can get into the water ride's stream, you can keep a chain going for a bit. I was hoping for online play to be added; so I was really disappointed.

* And more, including Trophy support, which we’ll outline for you in a future post - so keep your eyes peeled.

Is "wipEout HD" a totally orginal game or is it a port of a previous PSP version?
