PSN Roundup: Comeback Special

Armageddon! Red! King! Octopus! Siege!

PSN, we really missed you. Week after week of hopeful expectation that Sony would resume service went by, and nothing but sullen messages about maintenance. But it's back! Back! [We know, it's been back a while now, but this article got held up by some glorified meeting in America. -Ed.]

The expected content flood hasn't quite panned out the way some of you might have imagined. Wisely, Sony has given us extra helpings, but presumably not all the pending content that would have emerged had things operated normally.

User content key for Under Siege.

Portuguese developer Seed Studios has lifted the lid on PS3-exclusive RTS Under Siege.

There's not much else to go on, other than some pre-alpha screenshots, which show rural areas and what appear to be tribes and explorers. We can't see much evidence of technology, and the silhouettes on the site suggest swords are the staple weapon-type.
