Video: ABZU, Giant Squid's First Project is Coming to PlayStation 4

50°
10w ago - Giant Squid Creative Director Matt Nava announced today that ABZU, their first project, is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: We are very excited to give you an early glimpse of ABZU, [Register or Login to view links]'s first project, coming to PS4. ABZU will take players on an epic adventure into the depths of the ocean, where they will encounter majestic creatures and discover long lost secrets.

The game draws inspiration from a deep, innate story that we all carry in our collective subconscious, a universal origin myth that resonates across cultures. As such, the name ABZU references a concept from the oldest Mesopotamian mythology: it is the combination of two ancient words Ab, meaning ocean, and Zu, meaning to know. Essentially, ABZU is the ocean of wisdom.





ABZU is being made by Giant Squid, a newly formed game studio intent on making creative and artistic interactive experiences. I started Giant Squid after working as the art director at thatgamecompany on two very fun projects, Flower and Journey.

I learned a lot about the game development process as well as design ethics from the great people on that team. On Journey, I was honored with the responsibility of designing...

11w ago - Klei Entertainment Community Manager Corey Rollins announced today that Don't Starve: Giant Edition is coming to PS Vita.

To quote: Hey everyone! I'm Corey Rollins from Klei Entertainment, and I'm happy to announce Don't Starve: Giant Edition is coming to PlayStation Vita and will include both Don't Starve and the Reign of Giants Expansion. Now, we're not sure of an exact release date yet, but it's happening.

Since we first released Don't Starve: Console Edition on PS4, a lot of people said they'd love to play it on the go with their Vita. Well, we agree!

Don't Starve: Giant Edition will include the original Don't Starve along with all of the updates currently released on PC and PS4, including the multi-leveled caves update and the discoverable "Adventure Mode" that puts your survival skills to the test with multiple randomly-generated unique worlds as you try to escape your wild and strange prison.

Along with the original version of Don't Starve, you'll also get the Reign of Giants Expansion included! So Vita players will get access to the original nine characters and two new additions.

Play as Wigfrid, a stage actress who went a bit too far with method acting on her latest role, an ancient Valkyrie, or Webber, a young boy who lives inside the spider who tried...

59w ago - Sony Contributing Editor Roland Fauster shared an interview today on Tales of Xillia with Hideo Baba on the return of an RPG giant.

Below are the details, as follows: Hi there RPG fans! 2013 has now silently swapped into its second half but beware - before the end of the year there are all manner of great new games lined up that have the potential to blow our minds.

Case in point - acclaimed JRPG Tales of Xillia, which [Register or Login to view links] is finally bringing to western shores after two years of waiting.

With the release now only a few weeks away, we caught up with the game's producer Hideo Baba and asked him to tell us all there is to know about this latest installment in the Tales franchise.

Can you describe the core concept behind the Tales games for any players who are not familiar with the series?

Hideo Baba: I would like to say that the key concept in the Tales series is that it is an RPG that is set in a fantasy world describing the growth of the hero, heroine and other main characters.

We always put a key theme and message in the storyline to convey to players through the gameplay and would like players to feel encouraged and moved, which leads them to take the first step towards a new...

To quote: Are you ready, guys? Because right now it's [Register or Login to view links] happy hour!

Or more like Happy Day, since today we celebrate the release of our precious PS Vita title. It's been a lengthy localization journey, but we're proud to bring out the Ragnarok Odyssey Standard Edition for $39.99, as well as the [Register or Login to view links], which includes a meaty monster guide with artwork, a full soundtrack, and 10 randomized collectable monster cards out of over 50 for $49.99.

The game itself is the real star of the show, though. Think of it kind of like Monster Hunter or [Register or Login to view links], but with more of a Norse mythology twist and a battle system that's all about knocking your enemies high into the air, then flying up after them and flinging them all over creation before slamming them back down into the hard dirt below.

It's a great game to pick up and play anytime, as you can just grab a quest...
 

Ragnarok Odyssey on PS Vita is a Giant-Smashing Good Time

50°
106w ago - XSeed Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has shared an update on Ragnarok Odyssey for the PlayStation Vita handheld console today.

To quote: I've been playing Ragnarok Odyssey for PS Vita. In English.

Are you ready to stand taller than giants? You should be, because that's what this game is all about.

One day, a passage along the Millennium Peaks gives humans access to the long-sealed off Sundered Land, and because they're really lucky, it's filled to the brim with mighty beasts that seem to want nothing more than to destroy mankind's territory - Trogdor-style.

Only they're not dragons with handsomely chiseled arms, they're ugly Giants. Giants who like to smash things.

That's where you come in. You're a mercenary on the front lines, and once you choose your sex, job class, and how cute you are (by way of hair style/color, skin color and voice type), you're ready to drop in on Fort Farthest like a bat out of hell.

And don't worry, you're only restricted to your default job class for a short time - you'll soon be able to go from hacking and slashing as a Sword Warrior to creating miniature explosions as a Mage with a mere wardrobe change.

And even that won't be a limitation soon enough, because I'm sure some of you would prefer...
