31w ago - Cyanide Producer Sylvain Sechi has shared a video trailer today announcing that the PS3 action RPG Of Orcs and Men is hitting PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Hi PlayStation players, this is Sylvain from Cyanide. I'm here to give you an introduction to the world of Greenskins and humans.
Of Orcs and Men is an action RPG, taking place in a dark and mature universe where Greenskins (orcs and goblins) have finally been defeated after a long war against the human kingdom.
The emperor has decided that, in order to prevent any further war against the Greenskins, it's best to just commit full-on genocide - unfortunately for you, you'll be controlling an orc and a goblin.
As the game starts, Arkail (the massive orc) and Styx (the stealthy goblin) are among the last of their race still alive. They are sent on a suicide mission - to reach the land of the humans and assassinate the Emperor, thus stopping the massacre and enslavement of greenskins.
Originally, while playing with the prototype, we enjoyed controlling Styx and Arkail individually, but even more, we liked the combinations they could have. We kept improving features to make them as unique as possible, but we also worked on tandem attacks for use in combat (like throwing...
93w ago - Bedlam Games Director of Production Tim Ernst has revealed details today from the Daggerdale PS3 development diary, covering the transition from Dungeons & Dragons to an Action-RPG on PlayStation Network.
To quote: When we first heard about the opportunity to not only work with Wizards of the Coast but on the Dungeons & Dragons property itself, well let's just say that the nerdgasm around the studio was at an all-time high.
We went with action-RPG as the genre based off of studio competency, market trends and general interest (basically, we thought it was cool and knew we can do a good job of it.) We knew that this the best fit for our first D&D game.
We wanted to make the game as accessible as possible, just let players play, harkening back to the 'old school' days of gaming. You should be able to play alone, call a buddy over and play locally or jump online and find a party of adventurers to group with.
There are definitely development issues with balancing and performance having a downloadable PSN game that is fully featured, but we felt strongly about the usability of the game. Besides, isn't that what D&D is about - freedom of play?
It was also important to us that the player has a persistent character without restrictions that he or she can continually...

210w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced news today that Devil Summoner 2 will be hitting Sony's PS2 console tomorrow.
To quote: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon, one of our biggest games (and game names) of the year, comes out tomorrow for PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.
The second game in the Devil Summoner series to make its way to North America, Devil Summoner 2 continues the tradition, putting you in the shoes of Raidou Kuzunoha, a supernatural private investigator in 1920's Japan.
The world design and character art soaks the game with early 20th century style, and lends a great deal of credibility and authenticity to the story. The Shin Megami Tensei series itself, if you're unfamiliar, is a franchise of deep, thought-provoking, character-driven RPGs, known for its powerful visual design, music, and writing.
As for the story, who better to tell you what it's about than the game's lead human editor, Nich Maragos (who also worked on Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army):
"It's about the 14th chosen protector of the Capital and his journey to discover a mysterious man's whereabouts. It's about a client who never quite tells you the whole story, and finding out...
