Killzone 3 and PS3 Bundle Confirmed

Have you not picked up Sony's big black box yet?  Well, now may be the time to act.  On February 22, the PS3 and Killzone 3 package will be available.  The good folks over at CVG spotted the bundle listed on  Amazon.com, and Sony recently confirmed it.  Here's a little pro tip; if you can find it on Amazon, then it's probably real.  They don't make stuff up for fun. (Unless it's George R. R. Martin's A Dance of Dragons.  That's been listed since 2008, and it is never coming out. Curse you, Zach G.)

Painkiller Redemption - 6,000 Dead Monsters for $5

Painkiller Redemption is a new stand alone expansion pack for the Painkiller series which promises dozens of new levels in a seven to ten hour campaign with over 6000 "uniquely spawned monsters."  The best part about this expansion, which supports four player online or LAN co-op, is the price - $5.  A little math reveals a CPDM (Cost Per Dead Monster) ratio of just .083 cents - seems like quite the bargain to me.

Hide the Hotdogs! New Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime Screenshots

It seems like only yesterday that Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime was announced for the PC, XBox Live Arcade and PSN.  The four player co-op isometric shooter is sure to test your ability to NOT get slimed - and the best way I can think to do that is to stay away from any hot dogs you see in the game.  A Hot dog to Slimer is like Charlie Sheen to a bottle of Jack - irresistible.

Spare Parts Achievement Patched

The co-op friendly casual game, Spare Parts, released a few weeks ago.  We thought co-op added a lot to this otherwise vanilla game, giving it a 3 out of 5 in our co-op review.  Completionists might have have noticed that it was impossible to attain all of the Achievements.  A Co-Optimus community member noticed as much and commented on the review.  Never fear, 100 Percenters!  A new patch will automatically install the next time you boot up the game, making the final ship piece appear where it should have been.  Collecting this piece will  allow you to get the Ship's Engineer Achievement.  Happy hunting!

Have You Forgotten About Moon Diver? New Screens and a Trailer Will Refresh Your Memory

Last year, Square-Enix announced a four player co-op game called Moon Diver.  It was revealed shortly before E3 and may have been lost is all the hubbub.  Moon Diver is 2D side-scrolling, action-platformer that puts players in the tabi boots of four ninjas. The sharp eyes at Silocnera caught new screens that have been appearing on Square-Enix's downloadable game's Facebook page.  Many of the screenshots show off some of the ninjas' special moves.

World of StarCraft Resurrected as Starcraft Universe

The World of StarCraft MMO mod for StarCraft 2 has been rename and retooled into Starcraft Universe.  The change comes on the heels of a wild week for the mod's creator in which he was given a cease and desist letter from Activisions Lawyers, offered a job by League of Legends developer Riot Games, and finally flown out to Blizzard HQ to present his case to the team.  The end result of this yielded a new mod that's slightly retooled, renamed, and not quite the MMO people originally hoped for.
