Woo! Excellent way to do trophies when they can't apply them retroactively, too.

Game Difficulty settings
You can now choose between three different difficulties of gameplay! There is a Casual mode, the Regular/Ranked mode, and Hard-core mode. The great news here is that you can use any combination of difficulties to complete your progress through the islands! Is there one particular map thatís too hard? Try it in Casual mode. If you Rainbow the level, that rainbow counts and will remain on the map no matter what difficulty the other rainbows were achieved at! Only the Regular difficulty will register on the ranking boards, though.



Tower Menu selection
You can now set the default menu to appear when selecting a tower! How many times have you sold off a tower and run over to another tower to quickly upgrade it and accidentally sell it by mistake? I know Iíve done that many, many times. Now you can choose which option appears as the default, instead of the last action you selected.


Tower Balancing
Those of you who have purchased Encore know about the reduced cost on the Ice Tower, and balanced functionality of the Tesla tower. This patch applies those changes to BOTH islands, not just the Encore island.

Video Recording / YouTube Support
Ever since Q-Games included this feature into PixelJunk Eden, we knew it needed to be in Monsters as well. You will be able to record up to 10 minutes of gameplay and upload it directly to your YouTube account, or send it to your video folder on your PS3ís XMB.

XMB Custom Soundtrack Support
You can now make your own custom soundtrack to listen to as you play PixelJunk Monsters and Encore! Iíve personally been enjoying listening to the PixelJunk Eden soundtrack while I play Monsters, as well as listening to the PixelJunk Monsters soundtrack within Eden! Itís great how well those fantastic soundtracks work in other games.

With these features being added, and several other small bugs being fixed in the game, we think youíll have a great time playing PixelJunk Monsters and Encore all over again.

I think thatís about it Ö But it feels like Iím missing something Ö Hmm Ö I canít quite put my finger on what I might be forgetting. Wait a minute Ö I remember now Ö


TROPHIES
Trophies are now added for both PixelJunk Monsters and Encore. We werenít able to retroactively apply Trophies to the previously played data, but Q-Games didnít want to force people to play everything all over again. They came up with a great idea by creating Trophy Challenges. These challenges have specific maps with set rules or objectives that will reward you with Trophies if you complete them properly.

geat news, me and my better half love this game, but it got too hard for us so the casual mode on a few of the levels will be welcome relief.

Just when we start drifting away from it, they go and do this. Did I mention this is the best console game I've played in this generation? Best co-op game ever.

I don't think I have a single trophy yet on my ps3, mostly as I don't feel like replaying stuff I've already cleared. This sounds like a great way to get around that. Might get me and my wife back to playing it.

No trophies for co-op, and hardcore mode seems to consist of the last couple of waves being purple instead of blue.

This patch fucking sucks.
