Playstation Store Gobble Gobble Early Update

Those great guys at Sony have shoved out the weekly PS Store update two full days early this week in anticipation for the most gluttonous holiday known to the modern American; Thanksgiving.

Some of the highlights from today's early update includes the "Fall Sale" where you can pick up your very own Echochrome, The Last Guy, Novastrike, PixelJunk Eden, or Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 for the low, low price of 4.99. That's 50% less than retail price, or half off for those of you who aren't very good with percentages.

You can read the whole list of updates complimentary of Destructoid after the break.

Awesome Things In Gaming #3: Destructable Environments

You're running down a mountain cliff road when suddenly you're faced with what seems like an unbeatable blockade of enemy soldiers, then you notice the explosive barrel on the ledge above them, you carefully aim your semi-automatic 9mm Uzi and open fire.

The barrel lights up like a Christmas tree and cracks the precarious ledge, sending it crashing down to your foes leaving them smashed or tumbling down the mountain side with no hope for survival. You climb over the debris and continue along your journey showing no emotion like the bad ass you are. Awesome.
