14w ago - Following up on Part 1, today Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore returns with the second installment introducing the boss battles of Puppeteer on PS3 below.
To quote: Hello everyone! I just got back from Germany where I had the amazing opportunity to discuss Puppeteer with so many people while at Gamescom. And, since Puppeteer is on the brain, I figured why not showcase the rest of the bosses in the game to you all.
So, take a look at the final six Generals as well as some small details about the Moon Bear King. Puppeteer is almost out and I can't wait for everyone to lose their head!
Appearance: Not a typical, solidly built Western dragon, but a Chinese-style flying, serpentine beast, with gemstones in his hands.
Personality: Brought up on the streets of the city of the Moon, Dragon is a wise guy. He is always saying "forget about it", although no one ever does and Dragon makes sure they don't.
Relationships: Dragon obeys the MBK like a "Made Man" to a "Don." Though Kutaro does not realize it, it was Dragon who snatched his soul from Earth and brought to the Moon.

Appearance: A gigantic tiger with a Moonstone shard for his left canine. His tail ends with a spiked iron ball, like a mace.
Personality: A true paper tiger, kowtowing to the tough, and browbeating the weak. Reflecting his personality, General Tiger has a slightly lewd turn of phrase. Earlier in his life, he was a complete coward.
Relationships: Tiger is overawed and obsequious to the Moon Bear King to an unnecessary degree. He treats the Witch, Ying Yang, the puppets, and the grubs with...

42w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has posted up a video today spotlighting the tough choices and colossal bosses in Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita below.
To quote: Soul Sacrifice is, as its name suggests, a game that asks the player to make an ultimate decision. It happens every time you defeat an enemy, actually - a choice to either save the enemy's soul, or sacrifice it for your own gain.
How you customize your character in this regard is crucial, since you're going to go up against some very large enemies. That scale, and the importance of making the player truly feel it, is at the heart of this piece from composer Wataru Hokoyama:
"An unbelievably gigantic enemy appears before you. For this piece, I focused on bringing out the full potential of a full scale orchestra by using bold orchestration to depict the immeasurable sense of scale of the enemy's size and power. I hope the score will make the players feel like, "there is no way I can beat an enemy with this kind of scale." - Wataru Hokoyama
Because there are gigantic, powerful enemies, it's important to build your character's stats and levels. Your decision of saving or sacrificing will affect what type of character you want to build.
