65w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has detailed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for PlayStation 3 today stating that it cuts to the chase!
Below are the details, to quote: Let's not mince words. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is in most ways the polar opposite of the Metal Gear Solid series, abandoning restraint and resourcefulness in favor of unapologetic brutality.
If Metal Gear Solid was an elegant switchblade, Revengeance is a rip-roaring chainsaw.
The opening tutorial mission wastes no time in showing off the game's much-touted Blade Mode, a surprisingly intuitive mechanic that boasts palpable precision. You press and hold L1 to slow time, then hold the right analog stick to wind up your slice.
Hold the stick to the right and Raiden will draw his sword to the right; release the stick and he'll slash from right to left, cleaving obstacles and baddies in two. It's a devastating and deeply satisfying attack, but it's slow and expends fuel cells so it's best reserved for surgical strikes.
Blade Mode has been much discussed, but less has been said regarding Revengeance's impactful combo system. You can tap Square and Triangle (wide attack and strong attack, respectively) to fire off rapid slashes and acrobatic flip kicks ala Dante in Devil May Cry.
121w ago - Bend Studios Creative Director John Garvin has made available a video trailer today spotlighting Uncharted: Golden Abyss for PS Vita which introduces Marisa Chase.
To quote: We've just released a trailer that introduces a new and important character from our story. You met Jason Dante in our E3 demo and learned a little bit about him: that he and Drake have known each other a long time, that they each know Sully, that Drake taught Dante a lot about treasure hunting, that Dante can be a little, well, greedy.
This time we're introducing Marisa Chase. But as she tells Drake at one point, call her "Chase," only her grandfather calls her "Marisa."
I don't want to give too much away at this point, but I can say this: once again Nathan Drake finds himself on a quest to solve a historical mystery which he hopes will lead to a fantastic treasure. The trick is staying alive long enough to get there. No easy task. And when Drake gets between Dante and Chase, events quickly spiral out of control.
We were lucky to get some really great talent to play our key characters. Nolan North, of course, reprises his role of Nathan Drake. Nolan...
165w ago - Today Head of Production Ben Creasey has detailed this weeks VidZone PS3 update, which includes a Chase & Status exclusive and more, as follows:
Chase & Status have been ON... FIRE... recently and let's just say the fire brigade haven't got a chance against this inferno.
Especially now with a massive freshly thrown Molotov cocktail fuelling the fire in the shape of their new single "Hypest Hype" featuring Tempa T, and guess who has got exclusive rights to fan the fire with the first play of their new video on the 7th of October? VidZone of course!
So watch it and fall in love, then you can download the track FOR FREE from www.chaseandstatus.co.uk on the 8th of November. Which is about as nice as you can be... Isn't it? The answer is yes.
Even Zane Lowe thinks so, so much so he has been his "HOTTEST RECORD IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW".
