Version 1.06 and its new features.
Patch 1.04 for Fat Princess is released today, says the PlayStation blog, and it includes a free new map.
The map's called Brownie Town and it's city-themed. Among the fixes is the correction of a problem with online rankings whereby Team Deathmatch and Invasion all-time and monthly scores weren't posting correctly.
Elsewhere on PSN, it's worth reminding you that the European beta for intriguing build-your-own kart racer ModNation Racers begins tomorrow, and today's the day you'll be able to download the client from the PlayStation Store.

It's probably bad form to start a review with a cultural reference that is alienating to anyone who didn't grow up in England in the 1970s, but you're going to have to bear with me.
Back in the time of polyester and oven chips, there was a show on Children's BBC called We Are The Champions. Essentially a televised schools sports day, it pitted provincial comprehensives against each other in a frankly bewildering range of beanbag and quoits challenges. The finale always took place in a swimming pool filled with inflatables, and thus the only bit anyone was ever interested in was the very end, when gruff presenter Ron Pickering would bellow "Away you go!" and all the kids would hurl themselves into the water for a few blissful minutes of anarchic arsing about while the end credits played.
Fat Princess often feels a lot like that - a giddy, noisy catharsis that makes a big splash, but to no great lasting effect.

The word "unique" gets bandied about a lot these days, so it's hard to stay awake when you hear it coming out of a developer's mouth. Especially when you're jetlagged and you've had no lunch and you've already seen seven videogames today, all of them variations on the popular theme of shoot-the-monster-in-the-face. And especially when the word "unique" is followed by the phrase "combination of gameplay elements you've seen over the past ten to 15 years".
Gory and colourful PSN game.
