70w ago - After playing the game on my PS3 for a few weeks, here is my Rainbow Moon PSN review for PS3News.com!
Rainbow Moon is a SRPG for PSN from SideQuest studios and Eastasiasoft. You play the role of Baldren who at the start of the game is cursed into a portal by his nemesis.
You find yourself in a beautiful, enchanting once peaceful land of Rainbow Moon. Unfortunately you are not the only thing that has come through the portal. The curse has unleashed hoards of monsters upon this paradise.
The people of Rainbow Moon are very weary of you at first and believe you are behind the infestation detroying there land. Your goal as Baldren is to Rid the world of monsters and find a way back home, if possible.
I started my quest on Normal difficulty and had little trouble learning what I needed in terms of strategy to win battles in this turn based grid battle system. You will meet many people along the way, some of who will join your quest after you save them from an enemy or complete a quest for them. This greatly helps...
71w ago - Today VP of Products Michelle Chen has announced that the Crunchyroll application is now out on PS3, which brings Anime & Asian Drama to your TV set.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi, anime and Asian drama fans out there. Today, we launched the Crunchyroll app on PlayStation 3!
The app allows Crunchyroll premium members to watch our entire catalog of anime and Asian drama, while free members can stream a sizeable collection of our content.
You can learn more about our membership plans and pricing here, and you'll be able to sign up for a free 30-day trial on your PS3.
Crunchyroll has hundreds of Japanese anime titles across a myriad of genres. The app includes access to our simulcast titles, usually available a few hours after the first broadcast in Japan. My personal favorite is Gosick, a series full of mystery, history, and romance. It's true - anime is not just for guys.
We hope you enjoy watching anime and Asian drama on Crunchyroll!
213w ago - SCEA Marketing Specialist Brian Chou has revealed that European and Asian PS3 Rag Doll Kung Fu Doll designs will soon be hitting the rest of the world.
To quote: "Earlier this year, our friends at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Asia held a Rag Doll Kung Fu Online Competition in their territories, and they have been nice enough to share the winning rag doll designs with the rest of the world!
As winners of these design contests, Tarsier Studios has turned these into real downloadable characters, which will become available on the PlayStation Store for free on Thursday, November 12.
Pictured below are "Mistress of Mime" (SCEE) and "Shaolin Scarecrow" (SCEJ). Don't forget that all parts of Rag Doll Kung Fu characters are interchangeable, so you will be able to personalize your own dolls. Have fun!"
252w ago - Arc System Works' quirky 2D fighter, Battle Fantasia, saw a US release last year as an Xbox 360 exclusive, although the game is available on PS3 in the rest of the world (Europe and Japan).
However, it looks as though American PS3 owners may be getting a new chance at playing the game.
Siliconera (linked above) discovered a recently-appended entry to the ESRB listing for Battle Fantasia. The ratings board has the game covered on PS3 and "PSN via PS3."
To quote: It looks like there is a chance the PS3 version of Battle Fantasia could come to North America in a rather peculiar way. The ESRB re-rated Battle Fantasia as an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and "PSN via PS3 game".
So, Aksys is planning to distribute a retail PS3 game as a PlayStation Network download? We've seen this happen before with games like Warhawk, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, and Siren: Blood Curse which unlike the rest of the world was only a PSN download here.
