A Pair of Trailers for Dead Block

Our own Sam Tyler announced Dead Block on Co-Optimus a few weeks ago.  In his article he subtly alluded to the gaming industry's tendency to occasionally overuse an idea once it has proven popular.  I like his style, so in the spirit of the industry, I'm going to "borrow" it.  (I'm even reposting one of the  trailers he linked.) Dead Block is the latest "dead" title to "deaden" up the "undead" market place.  Seriously, type "dead" into Co-Optimus' search box.  Attack from the Dead, Dead Block, Dead Horde, Dead Island, and Dead Nation pop up.  Don't forget Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Dead Rising 2, House of the Dead Overkill, etc.  And remember, we only cover co-op games.  I am officially copyrighting the titles Dead Dungeon, Dungeon Dead, and either or both of those titles with an "of the" crammed in the middle.  Okay, I came up with the title.  Now someone go make the game and give me 50% of the profits.  Game development is easy!

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Rumor - You Are the Controller

So here we are, one week from E3... What does that mean? It means that most of the good surprises are going to be spoiled. Whether by rumors and leaks or by publishers trying to get their names in your lunchline conversations, expect a solid amount of exciting info to come your way before the expo even begins. Case in point - Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, a game heavily delayed and short on meaningful details, has a couple of tricks up its sleeve that may have already been outed.

PlayStation Store Re-Opening This Week

Despite today as being the original planned "full restoration" date - the PlayStation Store and several other Sony services still aren't back online as a result of the PSN Outage from the hacker attack.  All isn't lost though as Sony has assured us that the services will be back online before the week's end in all territories.  Its a good thing too, it would have made for an awkward E3 press conference next week.

Radiant Silvergun XBLA Details Emerge

It's been a long time coming, but it appears the wait for the XBLA release of Radiant Silvergun has an end in sight.  We hadn't heard much about it since last year's Tokyo Game Show, but now more information has been released, a good sign that the release is nearing closer.  In addition to local two-player co-op, the Xbox Live Arcade port boasts two-player online co-op.  The standard leaderboards, as well as the ability to watch replays from around the world, will let you share your uber shmup skills with everyone.  Enhanced graphics and an "Ikaruga shooting style mode" round out the package.  Radiant Silvergun is still listed as a general 2011 release, and will cost 1200 MS space bucks.

Dead Island Box Art Revealed - Surprise! There's a Zombie!

Publisher Deep Silver just sent over the official box art for Dead Island in North America on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.  Its not too revealing, though we have one kneeling zombie in the front who looks like he could be a companion to Nathan Drake on his next expedition - he's only missing the half tuck.  There appears to be a hurricane going on, which can never be good when trying to contain a zombie outbreak.

Sony's Free Identity Theft Protection Now Available for PSN Members

Possibly the worst thing that happened during the PlayStation Network outage of the past month was the theft of personal information.  This includes not only names and email addresses, but also credit card numbers.  While the data was encrypted it obviously doesn't mean its safe.  There's plenty of anecdotal evidence of people's credit cards being used for fraud, and many banks - mine included - decided to reissue new cards just to be on the safe side.
