This week the PlayStation Store is loaded with new releases that put you in control of zombie armies, magic powers and more!
Get ready for a crazy intense combat experience where every decision comes at a price in Soul Sacrifice. In this highly anticipated PS Vita release you play as a slave with a forbidden book that allows you to relive past battles and grants special magical powers. The magic is strong, but to use it during a battle you must make a “sacrifice” (hence the name of the game) in exchange, including parting with a limb or two.
Being a super hero is awesome. But let’s be honest, not everyone can be born with a mutated gene, be bitten by a radioactive spider or be a billionaire genius playboy philanthropist who has designed himself a flying iron suit.
In honor of today’s theatrical release of Iron Man 3 we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite movies featuring mutants, dark vigilantes, demons protect the world and some anthropomorphized, sewer-dwelling turtles :

LL Cool J – Authentic LL Cool J has certainly kept himself busy since his last album, Exit 13, juggling his acting, hosting and music career alongside venturing away from Def Jam Recordings for his latest album, Authentic. His splintered direction projects through much of this album, exploring new territories and genres, specifically with guest appearances. He returns the favor(?) of appearing on Brad Paisley’s latest with the far less controversial track, “Live For You.” He also brings in the shred factor with Eddie Van Halen and Tom Morello, alongside Monica, Snoop Dogg and Seal. This album marks a new chapter of the many storied book of LL Cool J.
