61w ago - Smart As Assistant Producer Nicolo Accordino has posted up two new videos today showcasing Smart As, which hits PS Vita on October 30th, 2012.
To quote: We're launching PS Vita's all-new social brain training game, Smart As, on October 30th in North America.
We've been hard at work loading Smart As with fun and engaging puzzle games to put your mental might to the test with challenges in four key areas: Logic, Arithmetic, Language and Observation.
As we recently announced, Smart As also features the voice talent of Monty Python's John Cleese; so as you train, you'll receive his encouragement and cheeky commentary. Better still, as you play and improve your scores, you'll get to share your stats with Smart As fans from around the world via the online leaderboards, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Here's a sneak peek at the some of our favorite Logic and Arithmetic challenges.
As you can see in this video, the Logic games are designed to test your ability to solve puzzles as quickly as possible. Inspired by the popular scientific opinion that the brain's frontal lobe is used for executive functions like problem solving, organizing and planning, our goal was to design games that tested...
64w ago - SCE Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore has shared a new Puppeteer PlayStation 3 trailer from Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2012 today!
To quote: Hi guys, back again to give you an update on Puppeteer.
First off, please let me thank you all for your wonderful, supportive comments after our announcement at Gamescom last month. It's dedicated PlayStation fans like you that make the incredible amount of hard work that goes into making games worthwhile.
You never know what reaction you will get from your work, and it seems that Puppeteer has hit the right nerve with gamers. So, when I got back from Germany, I started getting ready for Tokyo Game Show.
We aren't showing a playable demo on the show floor, but I have put together another trailer for the show. This one is longer and shows a little bit more of the story, without giving too much away and ruining it for you all. Have a look up above.
We are currently casting in London for the voice actors, so I apologize for the voices in the trailer. It's a little embarrassing because all of the voices are done by me, apart from the narrator.
Actually, I am thinking of doing the Witch's voice...
69w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi has officially announced their new PSN title Rain today and invite fans to watch the PS3 trailer below!
To quote: Japan Studio has a pedigree in creating a breadth of incredibly unique games, so it is no surprise to see that their next is a stylistic, original title.
Crafted by a team of talented creators known as PlayStation C.A.M.P., we're pleased to introduce their latest game, rain.
In this dark, mysterious world, you take on the role of a boy who becomes invisible, so his figure can only be seen in the rain. Freshly revealed at Gamescom, watch the announce trailer for a first look at this wondrous story.
That's all for now, but keep an eye out for more news about rain in the coming months.
69w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has made available a new Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time video trailer from Gamescom 2012 today confirming that fans who buy once will get it on PS3 and PS Vita.
To quote: Hello from Germany! I'd like to talk about the cool stuff we're showing off at this year's Gamescom for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
First and foremost, we'd like to introduce you to a new Cooper ancestor, Salim Al Kupar. You'll meet Salim as Sly travels back in time to the enchanted world of ancient Arabia - a land of magic genies, flying carpets and lost treasures.
Sly quickly discovers that Salim is nearing retirement and looking forward to taking a little break from thievery, but recent events have put an end to those plans! Now Sly and the gang will need to goad the slightly recalcitrant Salim back into action as they work together to restore his legacy.
We're also giving you a look at a brand new mission in Arabia so you can see Salim in action. We find him on a quest to free one of the members of his band of thieves from a strange imprisonment. To do so, he must use his signature ability - the Cobra Climb.
This technique allows him to rapidly ascend vertical ropes, chains or poles to quickly evade an attack. This comes in very handy as he makes...
69w ago - Guerrilla Games Managing Director Hermen Hulst has shared a new video trailer today at GamesCom 2012 for Killzone: Mercenary on the PS Vita handheld console!
To quote: Today we're really excited to present the first official gameplay trailer for Killzone: Mercenary at Gamescom.
Designed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform, Killzone: Mercenary is a first-person shooter that makes full use of the device's graphical and input capabilities.
It was built on the same powerful engine as Killzone 3, and it enhances the familiar twin-stick FPS control scheme with touch pad functionality for interesting new gameplay possibilities.
With Killzone: Mercenary, we want to offer PlayStation Vita owners a fresh perspective on the brutal conflict between ISA and Helghast - literally.
For the first time in a Killzone campaign, you'll be fighting alongside Helghast forces as well as ISA specialists, carrying out missions that the regular soldiers just won't - or can't.
As a mercenary, you're free to decide which tactics and loadouts you'll use to fulfill your contract; your employers will reward you with state-of-the-art weaponry and cold, hard cash as long as you get the job done. But what is the price of that freedom - and will you discover it before...
