Deathspank follow-up Thongs of Virtue arrives on the PlayStation Store today. It's only been two months since Deathspank turned up, mind you, and game creator Ron Gilbert has left developer Hothead Games. Will this be a turkey? Smother us in early impressions below.

Other full games include refondled Dreamcast game Sonic Adventure, cutesy anime swordplay game Blade Kitten and Sky Fighter. There's more detail on Blade Kitten and new PSP game 101-in-1 Megamix on the EU PlayStation blog.

Demos today are NBA Elite - the basketball game EA claims will revolutionise the genre - and Summer Challenge: Athletics Tournament, which shows up alongside controversy about facilities at the imminent Dehli Commonwealth Games. Exacty the publicity it was after.

Today's other addition of note is the Liars and Cheats add-on for Red Dead Redemption. No, it really is there, honest.

PlayStation Plus subscribers may also download the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow demo.

Oh, and don't forget about this week's SingStore and Digital Comics Store refreshers.
