Time to splash the cash.


Worth a look

It's another drab week as far as new releases go, but there are a few titles that are at least worth considering should you be feeling particularly flush. Phantasy Star Portable for the PSP offers a surprisingly solid take on the classic multiplayer RPG series, delivering the kind of co-op fun the Monster Hunter series had monopolised on Sony's handheld. Also worth a look is Dementium on the DS. This first-person survival horror is unlike anything else we've seen on the portable wonder and delivers more than a few chills when played using headphones.
