This Week On… US PSN Store (June 14th 2011)
Instead of just copy and pasting what is on the US blog, I have decided to change things up a bit. From now on I will just post the games and demos, along with trailers, and any note worthy sales or DLC. Let me know what you think about this in the comments.

Help these Akimi build their village and spread the purifying light that can free their island, and fellow villagers, from the Gloom’s dark power.

The 2D Adventures Of Rotating Octopus Character (minis)
The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character is a twitchy, fast paced platform game which you control with just two buttons. Rotating Octopus Character can’t stop spinning, and he sticks to everything, but he can change direction, and he can jump. So, armed with those two moves – Reverse, and Jump – you’re tasked with helping ROC to collect all the baby octopi who have been so unfortunately scattered all over the world. The videogame world is full of hazards for a spinning octopus, too, so it’s not just a case of jump-and-grab. Timing is everything to avoid sending ROC hurtling to his doom.
