43w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared details today on PSN title The Walking Dead as part of a 9-minute interview with Robert Kirkman.
Below are the details, to quote: Like many of you, I'm eagerly awaiting news on the release date of the third episode of Telltale Games' superb PSN series The Walking Dead, a game that is intimately connected to the grim world of Robert Kirkman's celebrated comic series.
I've long wondered just how involved Kirkman was with Telltale's hit game series, so when I got a chance to interview him during Gamescom in Germany last week, I dropped by bratwurst and Kolsch and picked up the phone.
I first met Kirkman during an interview for the late, great GamePro and, as always, the man is nothing if not humble about his considerable creative achievements.
He modestly described The Walking Dead's surge into mainstream pop culture as "a wild ride," and expressed great satisfaction with Telltale's work on the game.
My chat with Kirkman was short (he's a busy man!) but it yielded some fascinating insights into the creative processes behind one of the biggest properties in comics, TV, and gaming.

TEKKEN Blood Vengeance digs deeper into the corrupt underbelly of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Ling Xiaoyu and Alisa Bosconovitch and uncovers dark secrets that could destroy the Mishima family for ever, but will they survive long enough to reveal all?
"There's a lot that TEKKEN fans will learn when they watch TEKKEN Blood Vengeance, and I'm excited to give people this sneak preview," said Katsuhiro Harada, TEKKEN Project Leader at NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc.

196w ago - Today gimmeGTD of GameTrailers have shared a new Bayonetta video which covers the first 10 minutes of the game.
According to Kotaku, Sega plans to region-lock the title which is quite unusual for a PS3 game indeed.
To quote: "Unsurprisingly, we were told that the Japanese version would not be region free, meaning that North American and European consoles won't play import copies. The reason? It would impact sales of the game outside of Japan, we were told.
That's not that uncommon for Japanese Xbox 360 releases. The vast majority of games released in Japan for Microsoft's box won't play on anything but Japanese consoles. But the PlayStation 3 version? The games are almost all (thankfully) region-free. Locking down that version would be an unusual move on Sega's part."
Below is a 10-minute sneak peek at the upcoming action title developed by Platinum Games. Bayonetta is set for European and North American release in January 2010 on Sony's PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft XBox 360 console.
