EU PlayStation Store Update 30th March

Swarm! The 3rd Birthday! Ghosbusters!

There are no new demos on the PlayStation Store this week, but there are new games, new special offers and downloadable content by the truck load.

The games to focus on are 8/10 action puzzler Swarm - made by DeathSpank and Penny Arcade Adventures studio Hothead - and The 3rd Birthday. The latter is a showy PSP crime shooter by Square Enix that involves a steamy, "erotic" shower scene.

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime turned out to be a load of old ectoplasm (4/10 - Eurogamer).

There are new cars for new and good (8/10 - Eurogamer) racing game Shift 2: Unleashed. And DragonForce's wheat/chafe separator "Through The Fire And Flames" arrives for Rock Band 3. This made headlines way back with Guitar Hero III - how times have changed.

Disappointing final Mass Effect 2 DLC, The Arrival (5/10 - Eurogamer), also shows its face.

And would you look at the obscene amount of DLC for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters - are you sure it's not a free-to-play game, EA?
