Red Baron Arcade is out today, exclusively for the PlayStation Store.
The original game was released by Sierra back in the 90s, and was considered the number four Best PC Game of all Time by Computer Gaming World. Amazing.
The arcade-shooter format was been updated for PS3, and has 20 WWI aircraft for you to customize and control through various single-player campaigns.
Online mode is available for up to seven players to go at it via Deathmatch, Team-Deathmatch and Capture the Flag.
A free demo is out for it now as well.

In wake of the recent news that Ghostbusters: The Videogame has been put out to tender, Terminal Reality boss Mark Randel told videogaming247 today that the game will be published.
“Ghostbusters will be published,” said Randel. “That’s all I can say at the moment.”
Ghostbusters wasn’t the only Sierra casualty of the Activision Blizzard merger, with 50 Cent, World in Conflict and Brütal Legend all having to find new publishers as a result of the deal.

IGN has what we’re pretty sure is the the first hands-on of Sierra’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game, and it seems the site was suitably impressed.
“Although it’s way too early to sit here and give you the final word on Ghostbusters, I can tell you that it seems like it has the pieces in place to become a solid affair,” says the article.
“The environments are detailed, living places that change as you blast them apart; the Ghostbusters themselves and their equipment looks really good; the dialogue is funny and fitting for the franchise; and the gameplay feels solid.”
Full thing through the link.

After the link. See associate producer Ryan French walk you through Sierra’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game, revealing how you get cash for upgrades for every ghost you capture but conversely get billed by the city for all the damage you cause.
Loads more after the break. Looking good we think.

European Nintendo fans who haven’t caved in and bought a Freeloader, or re-bought a copy of Twilight Princess simply so they can mess around with a save game file, can finally get their hands on Super Smash Bros. Brawl this week.
If that is not enough smashing for you, then how about Sierra’s The Bourne Conspiracy? There you can smash people’s faces in all day long. With radiators and other household objects if necessary. Smash smash smash. That’s out on 360 and PS3.
If you don’t like smashing things – like, if you’re weird or something – then we’re certain you’ll find something on the list below that might be worth a purchase. Which is good.
