13w ago - Muteki Corporation Founder, President and CEO Bryan Sawler announced that Dragon Fantasy Book II is out on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms today.
To quote: After almost two years, four PAX showings (as well as GDC, E3, etc) it's almost bittersweet to be finally announcing this.
It was just over a year ago that we first announced this game was coming to PSN. But you can't understand why that is until you look at what really went into this game...
Dragon Fantasy Book II's origin is a long tale, going back almost 20 years to when myself and Adam Rippon, the game's writer and creative director were just teenagers. Knowing nothing about what it takes to make games, we looked at the JRPGs we loved at the time and wanted to make our own.
Over a dozen failures later we eventually gave up and went on with life, ending up in the game industry and working together at a number of companies. It wasn't until just a few years ago that the passing of Adam's father brought back the desire to make Dragon Fantasy (now titled Dragon Fantasy Book I).
As far as generic 8-bit style JRPGs go, we had a great response and added a ton of content until it became the game we eventually released on PSN earlier this year.
21w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer Exofreak has released a Facebook integrated PS3 XMB mod and video which allows you to use the basic functions of the Friends category (block list, add new friend, etc) if you got banned or can't access PSN and your friends category is empty.
To quote: This is a mod i have been working on for a few hours. Basically if you got banned or cant access psn and your friends category is empty, you can use this mod to have the basic functions of the friends category (block list, add new friend etc)
BUT HERE'S THE CATCH: it uses facebook to achieve them... eg, message box would take you to your psn messages normally but now it will redirect you to your facebook messages instead! basically its facebook integration into the xmb. Here's how to do it:
Unrar the file from this link (above)
Copy xmlhost to the root of the hdd
Then from multiman enable dev_blind and replace catgory_friend.xml (dev_blind>vsh>resource>explore>xmb)
Now log into facebook from the main browser with cookies enabled.

25w ago - Muteki Corporation President, CEO and Founder Bryan Sawler announced that Dragon Fantasy Book II is coming to PSN at E3 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: Since we announced Dragon Fantasy Book II back in August, we've had a very, very busy year. Our little 16-bit RPG that could has grown into quite a beefy project! Most of the game is now complete, with big chunks of the game tuned and fully playable.
We've got some big ol' bosses in there ready to stomp on people. We've beefed the engine up quite a bit from the SNES-like roots we were originally targeting, using way more layers, sprites, and rotation and scaling effects than that console was ever capable of.
We've travelled to two PAXes and a GDC, showing the game to everyone we could - and losing our voices several times in the process. And we even spent a good chunk of time and brought Dragon Fantasy Book I over to PSN as well, thanks pretty much entirely to the comments on this blog!
Most recently, we've added area-of-effect attacks to Book II. Getting attacked by a cluster of rowdy rock monsters is now no big deal when you can hit all of them at once with a well-placed spin attack!
Many magic spells have AoE effects as well, such as Freezios, which now freezes all the enemies in a straight...
