PlayStation Network Releases, October 25th: PixelJunk SideScroller, inFamous 2: Festival Of Blood

It’s the final week of October and we celebrate with the last two Only On PSN games, PixelJunk SideScroller & inFamous 2: Festival of Blood, in the October 25th, 2011 edition of the PlayStation Network Releases.

We sadly say goodbye this week to the Only On PSN campaign, which began this very October, with again two exclusive PlayStation Network titles, Q-Games’ fantastic homage to arcade space-ship shooters, in the vein of Gradius and the like, PixelJunk SideScroller (we did a short preview of the game a long while back, check it out), and just in time to get into the spooky spirit of Halloween, a separate downloadable expansion to one of this year’s best games for the PlayStation 3, inFamous 2: Festival of Blood.

A dark sinister force invades New Marais, inFamous 2’s New Orleans-esque setting, and it’s up to Cole MacGrath to defend his turf with a dangerous set of new powers — vampire powers. DUN, DUN, DUNNN! Right at the beginning of Festival of Blood, Cole gets bitten by a nasty blood-sucker and to save himself and the city from becoming the next vampire hot-spot, our hero must search out the head vampire (hint: he wears a red cape and a tux) and kill him/her/it. What? You thought maybe they would share a box of tasty-sweet beignets at the end of the game and talk the whole thing over? Heck no!

Festival of Blood is deeply darker all throughout, as evident by one of the first trailers showing Cole as a vampire violently sinking his fangs into an unsuspecting victim as spray of blood pours from the wound, and as such, brings a John Carpenter’s Vampires feel to the inFamous franchise that includes new missions, grimly-themed environments, plus new character and enemies all for just $10. Nice. Probably one of the best pre-Halloween “trick or treat” goodies ever, so enjoy!

But it’s not all hauntingly-themed trappings this PlayStation Network Releases go around, there’s other new offerings like Daytona USA and a new demo for Sonic Generations to try. Don’t forget also about the batch of downloadable content now available for Gran Turismo 5, which we wrote about here of course, that features new tracks, new cars, and new in-game options to dress-up your racing avatar.
