DeathSpank Smacks PSN On July 13
Ever since we heard about it, we've been waiting for an official release date for the aptly-named DeathSpank.
And now we have it. EA has announced that Hothead Games' latest will hit the PlayStation Network on July 13 for $14.99, and on the following day on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,200 Microsoft Points. At first, this loopy title was supposed to be an episodic project but eventually, the game evolved into a full downloadable title. We'll get a very cool action/adventure format with some hacking 'n slashing, along with the benefit of puzzles and a zany storyline; the video below certainly appears promising. We might even be able to call this one an "action/RPG," as you will level up during your progression.
Remember, Ron Gilbert was responsible for the famed Secret of Monkey Island franchise so this should feature some humor reminiscent of that classic series. Gilbert has left Hothead, though, so you better be happy with this product 'cuz there isn't likely to be more from this guy any time soon. The PSN is really starting to pick up lately, too; the likes of Joe Danger and Soldner-X 2: Final Prototype have been great additions.
