PixelJunk Monsters Patch Gives Replay Incentive

posted in: Game News 0

I’ve always wanted to play more PixelJunk Monsters. It’s an awesome little game which my brother and I sank plenty of hours in. We’ve achieved “Rainbow” ranking for every single level and thus the incentive to replay them isn’t quite there.

Sony is going to fix all that with a patch.

Come October 30th (if all goes well), we’ll be able to replay each of those levels for Trophies. I’m not a Trophy or Achievement whore, but any incentive to replay this game is a good enough for me!

Aside from Trophies, this patch includes:

  • Selectable difficulty settings – casual, regular and hardcore
  • Default Tower menu option
  • Video recording/ YouTube support
  • XMB custom soundtrack support

The keyword is ‘bits’ since nothing huge and/or surprising was revealed. The best of GDC was in listening to all the developers talk about their games, the industry and just shootin’ the shit. 1UP’s coverage of this year’s GDC was immaculate. The podcast discussions were both very informative and entertaining. It’s just something you cannot do via an formal interview. Well done, 1UP.

Personal highlights from this year’s GDC were as follows:
