11w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced that Lords of the Fallen on PS4 leads Bandai Namco's 2014 showcase.

To quote: Lords of the Fallen for PS4, What do fallen gods and iconic ninjas have in common? Bandai Namco, of course!

Earlier this week, the publisher held a showcase in San Francisco to exhibit its 2014 lineup. A diverse sampling of games made an appearance - some for the first time since their announcement.

Dark Souls II and Lords of the Fallen won special attention at the event, thanks to their striking art direction and uncompromising combat systems.

But there was much more than tales of dark fantasy to entertain and entice attendees. The latest in Naruto's long-running Ultimate Ninja Storm series was featured, along with a new side-scrolling platformer from developer Suda 51.

If you're craving a punishing challenge and twisted story, look no further than Sid's hands-on experience with Dark Souls II. And read on for the highlights from the rest of Bandai Namco's impressive showing.

Sony PlayStation Mobile Spotlight: Switch Galaxy is Showcased

100°
58w ago - Atomicom Managing Director Gary Nichols showcased Switch Galaxy today for PlayStation Mobile with details below.

To quote: As with many games industry developers of a certain age I grew up with the classics: Atari 2600, Commodore 64 etc. with my very first gaming experience being on a Binatone with Pong.

One game that was always a favourite of mine was Dodge-em from the Atari 2600 which I would play for hours and hours. It was so frustrating at times, especially when it got quick, but that made me really want to beat it even more.

Back in 2011 we'd just finished development of Bang Bang Racing and while thinking what we should do next, I thought about creating a 3D title that paid homage to Dodge-em.

So we started work and soon came to the conclusion that it was going to take way too long and be too difficult to make it enjoyable in full 3D, so we simply just got rid of the turns and made it straight instead.

We ended up with Switch, a mobile game that has gone on to be downloaded 1.7m times so far, which was so awesome considering it was a very simple endless runner that took six weeks to make. Even though it was simple, people loved it...
