214w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman had some time to speak with Localization Producer Ted Tsung today, and shared more about the new PlayStation Move shooter collection Time Crisis: Razing Storm.

To quote: It's scientific fact: Adding pirates to anything increases its fun factor exponentially.

It holds true for Time Crisis: Razing Storm, the new PlayStation Move arcade shooter collection that packs more play modes on one Blu-ray Disc than most games manage in three sequels - in this case, DeadStorm Pirates and Time Crisis 4.

We caught up with Localization Producer Ted Tsung to learn more about what Japanese gamers call "[Register or Login to view links]."

Let's start with the titular Razing Storm, which replicates Namco's trigger-happy shooter in its full arcade glory. Using the PlayStation Move, you and a partner tear terrorists to tatters with SMGs and riot shields and blast massive robot bosses with rocket launchers.

This PS3-exclusive edition adds a new off-the-rails Story campaign where you can freely move using an analog stick FPS-style, as well as throw grenades, swap weapons, and engage in mission objectives. You'll also find a new eight-player online deathmatch mode, as well as the pass-and-play Sentry mini-game where you take turns sniping escaping prisoners.

That's just Razing Storm. Also included is the separate arcade game DeadStorm Pirates, which ups the awesome significantly with its blistering, carnival-ride pacing and campy Pirates of the Caribbean pastiche.

The variety is impressive: One minute you're propelling cannonballs at menacing ghost ships, the next you're blasting bats on island rapids or frantically steering your ship away from the grasping arms of the Kraken. DeadStorm Pirates strongly emphasizes two-player cooperative play, and both players are encouraged to concentrate fire on tough armored enemies. Other times you'll spin the ship's wheel, using circular motions of the PlayStation Move, to dodge wrecked ships and over-sized octopi.

An arcade-perfect version of Time Crisis 4 (Read more here) is the icing on this thousand-layer cake. As with The Shoot, the games in Time Crisis: Razing Storm are compatible with the PlayStation Move Shooting Attachment, though for Razing Storm you'll want to use a two-handed grip so you can hit the Move button to deploy your shield. GunCon 3 is also fully supported, as is DualShock 3 if you're brave.

I'm using Hermes4b payload and Open Manager 1.17. I can't seem to properly configure the move controller to work. Can anyone give me an advice on how to do it?

I'm hungry of MOVE, but my friend said he is very tired everytime he plays, so maybe better to walk a dog

Bought it. And I have to say, does not impress me...

- Story mode (and sentry mode) are only available on Razing Storm. Time Crisis 4 & Dead Storm Pirates only have Arcade mode.
- In Story mode, you use 1st person style, like Time Crisis 4 story mode, but with slight change. You walk using navigator/A stick/left stick, but to move camera you point your gun to the edge. Maybe to compensate psmove that don't have right stick?
- It's not hard, but awkward.

*the pirate shooting game is fun though.
