12w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke has announced release date details for Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut on both PS3 and PS Vita below today.
To quote: Hey everyone, Rob here, representing the fine men and women of Curve studios in London. I'm very happy to announce that Lone Survivor will be out this coming Tuesday, the 24th of September.
Lone Survivor was originally released for the PC last year by indie developer Jasper Byrne. After eight months of work with Jasper on the PS3 and PS Vita versions, we're very happy to say that we've created the definitive version of this game.
Jasper describes the game as a "Psychological Survival Adventure." It has all the hallmarks of classic survival horror games - high on atmosphere and low on available sources of ammunition.
Players can choose to use stealth or firepower to deal with the monsters in Lone Survivor. Depending on player choices, the game can play out very differently, with many optional scenes and different endings.
For the PlayStation version, we started with simple upgrades, like adding touch support on Vita and improving the lighting system... and things spiralled from there!
We've added over twenty new items, new endings, and new game locations. All of them have been...
14w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo announced that Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness will hit PS3 on October 8th in North America and has outlined the new features in a video below.
To quote: Hey, doods! Once again, it's David from NIS America with news on the latest in our fan-favorite, strategy-RPG series, Disgaea. Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is set to launch for PS3 on October 8th in North America.
Also, for the first 30 days from the launch of Disgaea D2, a costume DLC pack for Laharl, Etna, and Flonne will be available as a free download on PlayStation Store! Isn't that something? Now, without further ado, let's get into all the juicy new details of Disgaea D2.
Disgaea D2 is a brand-new entry in the Disgaea series that takes place immediately after the first one, with Laharl being Overlord of the Netherworld. Unfortunately, no one else has gotten the memo, so he sets out on a quest with Etna and Flonne to let the denizens of the Netherworld know who's boss.
Along the way, he meets a few rebel demons that found out he's Overlord and aren't too happy about it, along with other colorful characters - including a girl claiming to be his sister!
And if trying to get some respect wasn't a dangerous enough endeavor, Laharl discovers that bigger...
86w ago - Following last week's leaks, today Electronic Arts has had no choice but to spill the beans and announce Crysis 3, revealing its 2013 release projection and limited edition plans.
To quote: Crysis 3 returns to New York, with Prophet returning to find the city trapped in a "Nanodome" by the Cell Corporation. It promises "seven distinct and treacherous environments" as the city becomes engulfed in natural flora, having turned into an "urban rainforest." This seems to confirm suggestions that the game would blend the jungle setting of the first game with the city environments of the second.
Gameplay has been described as "sandbox," so don't expect it to be as linear as the last one.
Pre-order bonuses have already been revealed, with select retailers offering various multiplayer packs, detailed below. Furthermore, the Crysis 3 Hunter Edition is available to pre-order now, and includes the "Hunter" Nanosuit module, a bonus XP boost for the multiplayer, three exclusive dog tags, and a unique skin for the debuting composite bow weapon.
Crysis 3 will be available in Spring of next year.
97w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed a release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines alongside a chat with Randy Pitchford of the prometheus possibilities on PlayStation 3.
To quote: The Alien films have always held enormous power over me, occupying the same sphere of significance that Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings do for many others.
So it's been with great interest and no small amount of hope that I've watched the development saga of Aliens: Colonial Marines. This Gearbox Software-developed first-person shooter promises to pick up where James Cameron's 1986 classic Aliens left off - an irresistible premise for any diehard fan of the series.
A recent trailer (watch it below) presented a convincing succession of sound and images, yet carried the sadface news of a new fall 2012 release date. What's an impatient Alien fan to do?
Well, I went to Randy Pitchford to get some answers. The gregarious CEO of Gearbox Software was all too happy to share new insights into the studio's plans for Aliens: Colonial Marines, including multiplayer concepts, the control scheme, play style... and, perhaps most tantalizing, what he knows about the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed origin tale Prometheus....
