April 30, 2009 // 9:21 pm - PAIN Associate Producer Jason Coker has made available a PAIN 'Sore Spots' trailer below, as follows:

Hi folks, In May, we will be releasing the Sore Spots add-on for PAIN. Check out a preview below.

Not only does Sore Spots continue the rich tradition of the silly fun that is PAIN, Sore Spots also includes a new multiplayer Mode that I'd like to introduce.

It's called "PAINalympics", and it's where two to four players can compete in the following events:

Horseshoes - There are four giant horseshoes floating in front of the launcher, and your task is to snatch them and try for a ringer. You have four launches.Whatcha gon' do?

Bull Ride - Imagine a large group of mechanical bulls, each atop a large column. Launch, grab, and hold on to as many bulls as you can. Ready to ride, cowboys and cowgirls?

Rope Kick - Test your Ooching skills by launching and grabbing a rope that you have to hold onto and swing on, knocking down as many of the characters in the area as you can in 30 seconds.

Balloony Bin - You have 45 seconds to push, pull, drag, or otherwise force balloons into trash bins. Extra points for the red ones!

Stack Whacker - All you have to do here is knock down a wall of boxes in as few launches as possible. If you're good, you can probably use some exploding objects to help do the job more quickly.

Anvil Toss - Snatch an anvil out of the air and chuck it as far as you can. Watch out for the cherry bombs and exploding chemicals on the floor, though!

Relay Race - Keep your Pimp Slap Hand strong and smack, smack, smack your way to the finish line in the best time...and don't forget the baby powder!

Punt Ball - Knocking a ball through a goal is sometimes a lot harder than it seems. Extra points if you hit the characters who are dancing between the goal posts.

Swing N' Dunk - Grab the ring, swing, release...wait for it...wait for it...Oooch your character through the basketball hoop. Harder rings grant a higher reward.

Sore Spots is headed your way on Thursday, May 14th, and we'll be releasing Ded Baron, a new launchable character, the following week. At the same time as Sore Spots, though, comes a little bonus - You'll also be able to get a free download of another beloved PlayStation personality, which you may have just read about.

He's a little shy, but here's a screenshot that will give you an idea of who we're talking about. See you in Sore Spots!

I remember my PAIN review when I said they needed online. They added it and it was pretty cool with the exception that you couldn't play where you just went around the city blowing stuff up. It's a expensive and unnecessary 2 player game. I honestly have more fun on a 20 year old game then I do on pain.

PS: Daxter = Win

I have been playing this game a little.

This level is really small, but still kinda fun. They keep on adding new content and are pretty steady with patches for the game....even though it does seem to get old quickly...

But for a lil added fun in this level you can try to score a basket by launching your character through the basketball hoop
