PixelJunk Shooter Confirmed For December 10

The PSN is home to some of the most original and entertaining little titles of the generation, and we've already seen some excellent efforts in the PixelJunk franchise.

Well, yet another is prepared to hit the Store next week: it's PixelJunk Shooter, which will be available to buy on December 10. You can view what we consider to be the launch interview at the PlayStation Blog, where SCEE's Jem Alexander speaks with Q Games President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert about the unique old-school-style shooter. You get a great look at the gameplay in that trailer and as you can see, it takes the concept of 2D shooting and brings it to a new level; the concepts in these games are always simple, but they're also both ingenious and extremely well implemented. If you've played any of the PixelJunk titles in the past, you know how original - and how addictive - they typically are, so you'll definitely want to snag this one next week. Granted, it now has to battle recently released gems like Braid and Trine but this is further proof of the diverse quality that can be found online. Anybody think we'll have to give PixelJunk some sort of downloadable lifetime achievement award in like 10 years time?

Anyway, watch the video and decide for yourself. If you're not familiar, it's likely to surprise you...

Gravity Crash is also worth an old-school look.

LOL! I was just gonna say, Alienange's gonna love this. I was figuring based on your less-than-flattering comments about blockbuster hits such as "Braid", that 2D psn downloadables aren't quite your thing. But really, I just checked out the vid, and those new fluid dynamics, and it's really worth a peek.

I'm more against the price than anything. A game is a game. But $10? $15?! Not for me. Not anymore.

pixel junk monsters is one of the best and most addicting tower defense games ever! its worth the $10 and the $5 for the dlc for sure!

Then again thats what i think...

This game looks fun in sorts, but i didnt like eden, and racers was ok... But really they are ingenious games that deserve credit!

PJ Monsters destroys any other PSN content out there. I play it on my PS3 and PSP long after finishing countless other 60 dollar games for my PS3.

This looks good, might get it with my first psn card.

Well buddy, since you asked, let me tell you what happened between me and PJ. I gave them a decent sum of my money and they gave me a boring bag of 1s and 0s. A lot of people like Monsters and say it's their best game. I see that as a sure warning sign that the other two games are junk. 1 out of 3 is poor odds. I'm not about to throw more money at PJ hoping their fourth game is good.

I still can't believe they went with the name "Shooter."

Very bland, kinda meh even. Anyways, looks like a good way to kill a few minutes, but like most PSN releases I'll wait till the price reflects my interest in the product.

How do you play Point Blank w/out a GunCon?

I know you can use the face buttons and d-pad, but that control scheme is wonky for a light gun game.
