8w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford outlined some of Tearaway's papery challenges and PS Vita character customization for fans below today.
To quote: Even though Tearaway is a single-player game - a personal journey shared by you, and your little messenger friend, iota or atoi - we couldn't resist giving Tearaway players the chance to express themselves creatively.
We've already talked at length about the oodles of papercraft models you can collect as you play through the game, but there are also in-game challenges that will allow you to personalize the world as you travel through it.
A squirrel who needs a new crown, a chap whose moustache has been stolen by crows, and a pig that's too ugly... these are all examples of problems you'll be asked to solve through the cutting out of virtual paper shapes.
When the time comes to get crafty, you'll be presented with a virtual cutting mat, and a selection of colored paper sheets. Using the pencil tool, you can trace a shape that you want to cut out using the front touch. If you make a mistake, you can erase your flawed pencil lines with the eraser tool, but once you're happy with the shape, hit the scissors icon to cut it out.
You can layer multiple sheets on top of one another, just like using real paper, and once...
14w ago - Sony French Blog Coordinator Marianne Sartori is here with a fresh video and interview spotlighting Customization, Class Types, and Multiplayer on Bungie's Destiny for PS4 below.
To quote: During Gamescom, I was very pleased to meet with Bungie's David "DeeJ" Dague, who was kind enough to answer questions about Destiny - the studio's keenly anticipated project.
We covered a number of topics, including item customization, class types, weapons, and details on how multiplayer will work.
PlayStation.Blog: Bungie is staying in the science-fiction realm with Destiny. How are things different this time?
DeeJ: Destiny takes place in an entirely new world, with lands that are different from anything that we've created before. And we actually call it "mythic science-fiction," where we're fusing Destiny with science-fiction, fantasy, and mysticism.
I think the players will relate to the heroes of Destiny as knights more than soldiers. Destiny is all about your own personal quest. It's about an epic adventure to solve the mysteries that are encountered through the story.
PSB: The landscapes are post-apocalyptic ones. You mentioned that it would be something people would feel comfortable in.
43w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has outlined Urban Trial Freestyle PS3 and PS Vita customization and challenge details today.
To quote: One of the really cool features in Urban Trial Freestyle for PS Vita and PS3 is the ability to customize your motorbike - but it's more than just picking out shiny new parts.
Bike customization is a key factor that directly affects your performance in both the Stunt and Time Attack Modes. Bike Customization allows you to adjust your bike to best meet the conditions on each of the available tracks.
Urban Trial Freestyle provides you with three main bike components to customize your vehicle - engine, chassis and wheels - customizing these parts influences three main parameters: speed, acceleration and handling.
As you advance and unlock more parts, you will ultimately have four engines, four pairs of wheels and four chassis to choose from, giving you altogether a possible of 64 combinations.
If you maximize the speed parameter, you will compromise balance (along with more rigid chassis), so you will perform better in Stunts like Highest or Longest Jump but worse in Flip Meter. When you want to beat a particular Stunt record, the choice is pretty simple and you would focus on one or two factors.
55w ago - UFO Interactive Games Producer Andrew Wang has shared a video today announcing that Eliminage Original brings deep RPG customization to PSP today.
To quote: I think RPG gamers need no introduction to the concept of customization. In Elminage Original, the customization options are... abundant, to say the least.
There are 12 character races and 16 classes to choose from, so players will be able to tailor their party to suit their specific play styles.
Elminage Original is a dungeon-crawling RPG, and it doesn't try to hide it. It doesn't waste time hand-holding, and it lets you jump into the action very quickly if you so choose.
Parties are formed in groups of six, so whether you think you'll do better with Humans, Fairies, Werebeasts, or Magic Dolls, you can rest assured that there are plenty of combinations to try!
Customization is a big reason why I love RPG's. When I start to play a new RPG, I tend to get caught up when I'm allowed an unlimited amount of time to grind and discover new tactics, and I spend way too many hours doing so. I'm sure that some of you reading this know exactly what I am talking about.
In the case of Elminage Original, I even spent time customizing my entire party to make sure that they all had matching themed portraits....
92w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has posted up a video showcasing Armored Core V customization and bosses for fans today.
To quote: Today we're coming back at you with more Armored Core V action, and a deeper look at the customization, weapons, bosses, and AC insanity that you'll be finding yourself in the middle of come March 20th.
Between the kinetic energy, the chemical energy, and the thermal energy, there's a massive arsenal worth of firepower that you'll be able to choose from when building your ultimate machine of destruction in the game.
As we've said before, the team at FromSoftware has been a leader in the genre with this franchise for nearly fifteen years, and with Armored Core V, and they mean business.
Each AC you build is highly unlikely to be identical to any others you come across online since customization is key. Brand new for this game are the recon units that players are going to be able to lay out all over the map to survey the land and take out your enemies.
What's also cool are the emblems and detailing customization aspects that let you trick out your AC like no other. You can get crazy with it, and...
