New PS3 and PSP Releases for the Week of January 10, 2011
Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has posted up this week's new PS3, PSP and PSN releases today as follows:
Historically I'm not the biggest MMO player, but I have to admit, I invested an unhealthy amount of time in the DC Universe Online beta when it went live weeks ago, making the inevitable drop of the Blu-ray that much harder to wait for.
For all you "saviors", you can call me Black Orchid and you'll be answering to The Calculator soon enough. (insert villainous theme music)
DC Universe Online - The first project out of Sony Online's Austin studio, this action-based MMO explores the various worlds of DC Comics' superheroes and villains. Key collaborators include comic veterans Jim Lee (who serves as the game's Executive Creative Director), Ale Garza, Carlos D'Anda, and Scott Iwahashi, in addition to EverQuest developers, Chris Cao and Shawn Lord.
A massively-multiplayer experience, DC Universe Online brings high-energy action to the forefront with a combat system designed to deliver a fast-paced action experience with the extraordinary powers of your personally created heroes and villains at your disposal.
Battle with or against their favorite DC Super Heroes and Villains including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and The Joker. For the very first time, players and fans will be able to enter this fabled world as an active force for good or evil.
Venetica - In the era of Venetica, Death walks among the living as a flesh & blood being, carrying out the deeds of an ancient council known by a few as Corpus. Each generation of the Corpus is set with the task of selecting the next predecessor of the bringer of death. Unfortunately, the most recent council had unwittingly selected a crafty necromancer who is determined on bringing death and destruction to the world.
This conniving impostor has managed to transform into an undead fiend, which no mortal man can kill. This power-crazed necromancer is hell-bent on destroying the reinstated Death and the council of Corpus. Only one person stands in his way, Scarlett, the daughter of Death. Up to now she has known nothing of her origins, her powers and the capabilities that she possesses - now she is challenged to learn how to develop and use her powers to save her father and curse the necromancer and his henchmen to the eternal hereafter.
Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood! - A sequel to Nippon Ichi Software's popular action game starring the unlikely hero Prinny. Like the original game, Prinny 2 is a side scrolling hack and slash action game.
Players control the demon penguin which are known to be the "weakest monster in the netherworld." Your prinny can run, jump, slash, execute special skills and ride tanks and jets to battle enemies. As an extra bonus a whole new main character and story is prepared after you defeat the main game.
Faery: Legends Of Avalon (Demo Available) - In Faery: Legends of Avalon, the player plays as an elf or a fairy that will evolve during the story, through numerous quests and epic turn-based battles. Throughout the adventure, the player will customize his avatar thanks to a unique system changing not only the whole look of the character in every detail, but also its spells and special abilities!
Recruit various companions during his journey to assist him in his mission, and he will be given the chance to explore mythical places full of magic such as the World Tree, the famous 'Flying Dutchman' ghost ship, and many others, in order to try to understand why the Kingdom of Avalon is dying.
