32w ago - Community Developer Zack Cooper shared a video trailer today unveiling Splinter Cell Blacklist emerges from the shadows on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: I'm stoked to speak with you guys about our latest trailer for Blacklist, which we're calling "Stalk. Strike. Silence." If you're a Splinter Cell fan, you know that there's a rich history to the franchise.
The idea behind Blacklist is to embrace those roots by bringing back most of the core elements and merging them with the advanced gameplay and graphical evolution of the more recent Splinter Cell games.
We're also bringing back that sweet, dark, geopolitical drama that Tom Clancy fans are familiar with. In Splinter Cell Blacklist, the high-level storyline centers on a group of rogue nations coming together to create an ultimatum; they've had enough of the American occupancy on their land. This collective institutes a countdown, warning the United States to back off... or else.
That 'or else' involves specific threats to American interests. That's where Sam Fisher, now the leader of his newly formed Fourth Echelon unit, their mobile command center, the Paladin, and the classic Splinter Cell globetrotting come into play.
Looking at this trailer in particular, we wanted to re-establish Sam for both...
59w ago - GungHo Online Entertainment America Community Associate Antonio Cara has shared a video spotlighting Dokuro: A Bone-a-fide Hero which emerges on PS Vita today.
To quote: In my last post, I talked a bit about the origins of my favorite numbskull, Dokuro, and the story surrounding his heroic exploits. My ever-diminishing pool of skeleton-themed puns notwithstanding, I'd like to go a bit deeper into the gameplay elements of Dokuro as well as the concepts that spurred development choices.
Although Dokuro was inspired by children's books - The Velveteen Rabbit and a Japanese children's book called Kuma to Yamaneko - don't let the adorable chalk-laden game fool you into thinking the Dark Lord's castle is child's play.
At first, Dokuro may look like a pretty straightforward 2D side-scrolling puzzler: You've got a clear goal of escorting the princess from point A to point B, and a seemingly narrow list of what you can and cannot do to accomplish it.
You push a few boxes around, toggle a switch or two, and bash a few bozos who try to hurt your precious princess. The game wouldn't be a fraction as interesting as it is, however, if it simply stopped there.
As you progress through the treacherous castle, you...
You awaken to find the world in ruin, your heart beset with unexplained guilt. A cataclysm has destroyed the cities and empires of men and disfigured the spirit of humanity. In this nightmare, it falls to you to descend a mysterious tower in search of absolution.
Battle merciless foes through treacherous dungeons, scour for new items to aid you in your travels, and unlock the secrets of a devastated land. You will find death in the depths, yet learn that death is not the end of the story; in the twisted world of Baroque, it is only the beginning.
- Hardcore dungeon-crawling RPG action! With its many ever-changing levels, each teeming with perverse monsters and tormented souls, the world of Baroque is a frightening and unforgiving realm....
