Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Monster Madness: Grave Danger (PS3)

Staying true to the original comic book art style and hard hitting gameplay of the first title, Monster Madness: Grave Danger boasts vast improvements across the board. Now running on the Unreal 3 engine, the graphics look even more crisp, vibrant and enthralling. The control scheme has been totally revamped to get players knee deep in zombie carcasses in a flash. With 25 brand new single player challenge modes, unlockable costumes for all characters, online and local cooperative story mode and over 100 new power-up items, Monster Madness: Grave Danger is set to put top-down gameplay back on the map.

“We’re excited to provide this new and expanded version of Monster Madness to gamers,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Interactive Corporation. “All of the new content, combined with co-op and multiplayer modes make this a great title that PlayStation players are sure to enjoy.”

Players enter the world of four suburban teens as their town is completely overrun by creatures of all shapes and sizes. Follow along with our heroes as they battle their way to the bottom of this deadly mystery, making a few friends (and more enemies) along the way. Equipped with an arsenal of homebrew weapons and devices, the fate of the world balances on the shoulders of four mismatched high-schoolers.

The top-down, four player beat-em-up brings classic arcade style gameplay to gamers for a great price of $39.99.

Summer Athletics (PS2/Wii)

Featuring more than 25 events including sprinting, archery, javelin, hammer throw and swimming, "Summer Athletics" will have family and friends battling it out for the top podium positions! Custom-tuned Wii controls, an enhanced character editor, lifelike graphics and realistic animations will immerse players in the game's variety of challenging events, turning everyone into a world-class virtual athlete.

Developed by 49Games, "Summer Athletics" brings more than 25 action-packed sports right into your home. Featuring controls custom-tailored to each platform, the game is accessible to all types of gamers. A character editor, career mode, 3D animations and realistic environments round out the game's offerings, ensuring fun for the whole family and sports fans alike.
