11w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton went hands-on today with Deep Down on PS4, which he states offers some ambitious dungeon crawling!
Below are the details, to quote: Tokyo Game Show was arguably a little light on big, never-before-seen new games this year.
Sure, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Driveclub, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, Resogun, and the like were all present, correct, and looking very shiny. But if you were after something truly fresh out of the oven, pickings were slim.
There were a handful of exceptions, of course: Yakuza Ishin from Sega (as yet unconfirmed for a Western release), the very sexy looking Soul Sacrifice Delta on PS Vita, and Deep Down - Capcom's ambitious PS4 exclusive.
Along with Yakuza, Deep Down was the game that scored the biggest queues at the show, and my very first port of call. On the face of it, it looks like something gamers will have played more than a few times before.
You step into the sabatons of an armour-clad knight as he explores a dimly-lit dungeon, crawling with hideous creatures, and armed only with a lance. So far, so Dark Souls. However, there are three aspects to the Deep Down experience that set it apart as something entirely different.
Firstly, all its dungeons are procedurally generated. As with, say,...
75w ago - Following up on their previous details, today Game Creator Chris Boelinger at Ludically has shared a video dubbed From Board To Screen on Dungeon Twister for PSN.
To quote: Hi - I'm Christophe Boelinger, and I create board games.
My life is dedicated to games. I've made more than 30 games to date, and have always dreamt of seeing one of them turned into a video game. This week, that dream is going to become a reality when that will help you knock me off the top.
When I first designed Dungeon Twister as a board game way back in 2003, I knew it was the perfect candidate for a video game. Its infinite gameplay, the fact that no two games ever the same, the tremendous number of strategies that can be deployed and just how addicted we all got to it suggested that it would be a great videogame.
So I really am delighted that it is coming to PSN tomorrow for £7.99/ €9.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers can also enjoy a 50% reduction on that price for the first two weeks following launch.
As I said, my life is dedicated to games. So please come find me on Playstation Network...
76w ago - Today Creator Chris Boelinger has revealeed that the Dungeon Twister board game will be arriving on PSN this coming Tuesday with details below.
To quote: My name is Christophe Boelinger, and I create board games.
To date, I've made more than 30, most of which are available in North America. My life is dedicated to games, so it goes without saying that I've always dreamt of having one of my board games turned into a video game.
Its modularity, its infinite gameplay, its never-ending renewal, the tremendous variety in strategies that can be deployed, and most of all its addictive nature.
So when I met the guys from Hydravision at a board game convention, it was a revelation – and the beginning of Dungeon Twister as a video game. Dungeon Twist makes the jump to PSN this Tuesday, July 3rd.
So what is Dungeon Twister? It is a turn-based strategy game that some describe as a mix between chess and Dungeons & Dragons. The story is simple: A powerful character called the Arch-Mage has discovered immortality.
98w ago - Today Ubisoft PR Specialist Alex Monney has outlined the epic fantasy journey that Dungeon Hunter Alliance brings to PS Vita.
To quote: Over the next week, Ubisoft will be profiling our upcoming portfolio of launch titles for the PlayStation Vita.
All these titles will be available a week prior to launch, giving gamers the opportunity to build up their library prior to the launch of this highly anticipated PlayStation handheld or experience the games early if you are picking up the First Edition bundle on February 15th. Let's kick off the week by stepping into the fantasy genre.
But first, a question for my fellow PSP launch owners. How much fun was exploring the fantasy world of Untold Legends? I remember going over to my friend's house to sit side-by-side as we tackled different dungeons. With Dungeon Hunter Alliance, we're bringing back that feeling of exploring a fantasy universe along with your friends.
You may already be familiar with the PS3 version of the game, but soon you'll be able to take the experience with you, exploring the depths of Gothicus, facing off against evil creatures, and enhancing your character while you're on the go.
Dungeon Hunter Alliance will also enable PS Vita owners to team up with up to three friends locally and via WiFi –...
