Call of Juarez: Gunslinger has to be better than Cartel
Of course, that’s not saying much as Cartel was a disaster in many ways and way under-delivered on a promise to take the modern-day issue with the Mexican drug cartels into a game. It could be forgiven for not meeting that admittedly lofty goal if it hadn’t been paired with some poor design across the board. I am lukewarm on Westerns as a film genre, though I count Tombstone as one of my favorite films of all time. In the gaming world however, Westerns have been consistently some of my favorite games dating back to things like the arcade classic Sunset Riders. 2005 saw the release of GUN (Still waiting for a sequel) and excellent western game. 2006 followed with the release of Call of Juarez. I don’t remember the game receiving much hype, but I do remember thoroughly enjoying it and being very impressed with the game graphically; one of the first DX10 games.
A sequel came out in 2009, not as good as the original in my opinion, but a good game nonetheless. Following up on the formula of the original. The 3rd game sought to bring the series into more modern times with the summer 2011 release Call of Juarez the Cartel. Game received mostly negative reviews, and having played through the game myself I can see why. This latest announcement through the link below, takes the series back into the old west and will be a downloadable title for consoles and for PC.

More Bonuses for PS Plus Members.
Perhaps the best news here is not a large game for free, though, if you have plus and haven’t played Red Dead, free means you have to. I think it becomes law. No, the best thing for plus members is the expansion of cloud saves to 1 GB. Anyone who has quickly hit the 100MB wall or even worse, like myself, has had a PS3 died and lost tons of saves because there was no room in the cloud to save everything, this is a good thing. However, that 1GB is going to fill up a lot faster than you think.

Puppeteer Announced by Sony. Read the brief article with a few screenshots of yet another innovative and interesting sounding game coming exclusively to the PS3. Sony seems to be bringing out some big guns at Gamescom, which is of course easier to due with no Microsoft in attendance.

The very impressive debut trailer for PSN exclusive Rain. This is a gorgeous debut trailer and an interesting concept. Follow a boy waking up in a strange place and slowly disappearing, you can only see his outline through the rain and footsteps in puddles.
