on the shelves

05/02: Iron Man [gamestats] - not so good. IGN's sub hub: "It's games like this that make Tony Stark drink." Repetitive and not that interesting. Typical video game based on a movie.

05/06: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (game of the year re-release) - you get the first map pack for free, in exchange for paying full price for a game 7 months old.

in the store

Downloadable Game

Rocketmen: Axis of Evil ($10) - didn't this already come out? And was on XBox months ago? And wasn't much good?

Add on Content

PixelJunk Monsters Encore ($6) - 15 new levels on a new map. I finally got around to the demo for this thing, and it's an okay strategy game. Feels like it should be a PC game.

- Rock Band {$2, or all for $5.50}
* "Date with the Night" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
* "It Hurts" by Angels & Airwaves
* "The Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" - Fall Out Boy

Previously released, but cut to $1 until 05/15
* "CrushCrushCrush" by Paramore
* "Rock N Roll Band" by Boston
Are they testing out the price point?

- Guitar Hero III: Muse Track Pack ($6.25 for all 3)
* "Exo-Politics"
* "Stockholm Syndrome"
* "Supermassive Black Hole"

Game Demos
* Bourne Conspiracy
I wanted to try these demos, but my TV is not working. For real.

After seeing preview videos for Ironman, I was stoked. It looked so good, but damn am I glad I waited.

These firmware updates are almost exclusively to defeat PSP piracy and hacking efforts. There is all sorts of homebrew software that you can run on earlier firmware versions (1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and now to some extent, 2.01).
