Video: 17-BIT Announces Skulls of the Shogun is Rolling Onto PS4

50°
13w ago - Senior Producer Raj Joshi at 17-BIT shared a video today announcing that Skulls of the Shogun is rolling onto PS4.

To quote: It's been a long road for us at 17-BIT getting Skulls of the Shogun out the door - and we hope you're ready for what's set to be the ultimate version of the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game: The Bone-a-Fide Edition, finally coming to PlayStation 4!

Skulls of the Shogun is a mash-up of turn-based strategy and fighting-game flare, scientifically engineered for lightning-quick rounds, thoughtful strategic play, and a frequently inappropriate sense of humor with its tongue planted firmly in cheek.

And whether you're into single or multiplayer, Skulls has you covered.

You play General Akamoto, Japan's greatest shogun, who's been stabbed in the back on the eve of his greatest battle - and transported to the Samurai Afterlife. But an impostor has taken your place, and it's up to you to shatter his plans and regain your honor as Shogun - of the Dead!

As you play through a beefy 10-hour single-player campaign, you'll build up your undead army, assembling infantry, archers, and scouts, along with a magical menagerie of animal monks.

You'll haunt rice fields, build units, and power up your troops by feasting on the skulls of your...
 

Video: Nidhogg on PS4: Sidescrolling Competitive Fencing Action

50°
13w ago - Messhof LLC Co-founder Kristy Norindr posted up a video today announcing some sidescrolling competitive fencing action in Nidhogg on PS4 with details below.

To quote: Hello blogizens, we at [Register or Login to view links] are super excited to announce that [Register or Login to view links] is coming to PS4! The game has always been best played with gamepads, so we're pumped to be working with Sony on our newest release of Nidhogg.

We have the most fun playing Nidhogg in front of our TV with friends. Sharing a TV and controllers is way more comfortable than crowding around someone's desk and sharing a keyboard. Exclusive to the PS4 version, the built-in tournament mode now indicates your fencer's color on DualShock 4's light bar... how cool is that?!

When you're not hosting an awesome Nidhogg tournament at home, you can get some practice in by playing through the single-player training mode, which has a variety of AI personalities you can practice against. Of course, sometimes you want to play against a real human, so playing with your friends via PSN is going to be super sweet.





In the past few months we've been watching Twitch streamers play Nidhogg on...

To quote: Sonic is headed to LittleBigPlanet next Thursday!

Sonic the Hedgehog, along with Sonic's alter-ego beast form, the WereHog, his pals Knuckles and Tails, and his nemesis Dr. Eggman have come to LittleBigPlanet to break some sound barriers!

You can get all five individual character costumes for SackBoy, but you'll want to be sure to pick up the Costume Kit that not only includes all five costumes, but also a selection of retro stickers based on the classic Sonic the Hedgehog adventures. This way you can make your own Sonic levels with Sonic style!

And speaking of Sonic levels... Here's an awesome level made by the extremely talented Creator Curator Kiminski. The level is called Sonic the Hedgehog: Greenhill zone and you can play it right now!

SackBoy is extremely excited about this weeks launch of God of War III exclusively for the PS3 system! He's been all nostalgic about the event by going back and playing his favorite God of War themed community levels in LittleBigPlanet!

Video: Sega Unveils Sonic the Hedgehog 4 - Episode I

250°
234w ago - Sega has unveiled Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I, previously Project Needlemouse, on Gamespot (linked above) which will be downloadable on Sony's PS3, Microsoft's XBox 360 and the Nintendo Wii console.

While the game retains the classic 2D gameplay that made the series great, Sonic 4 will include 3D visuals, and be digitally released over Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, WiiWare and the iPhone.

Due this summer, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 will take place after Sonic & Knuckles, but is "a brand-new adventure... what you are looking at is the beginning of a new story arc," says associate brand manager, Ken Balough to GameSpot:

"I think the best way to view it is as a first part in a much larger adventure. When Sega released Sonic 3, ultimately it was the part 1 of a story that saw its conclusion in Sonic & Knuckles.

In that same spirit, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is a bigger story, and this is that first chapter. I think it's also safe to say that by the end of the episode one, fans will be very excited to see what's in store for episode two!"

"We're going to deliver a Genesis-era Sonic game as if it were created today that goes to the core of what classic Sonic fans desire. All the Sonic favorites [are] here for sure!

The Reason Sonic The Hedgehog Lost His Way

400°
295w ago - Ever Since Sonic Adventure 2 on the Sega Dreamcast, the hedgehog has suffered some pretty piss poor releases. Sonic fans have been hurting for a long time now with titles like "Sonic Riders" and more recently "Sonic The Hedgehog".

What little good will gamers had left for the blue blur is quickly evaporating thanks to Sonic Unleashed, an otherwise decent Sonic game ruined by brawling levels that turn Sonic into a werehog combatant.

So why exactly do the development team keep screwing things up exactly? Turns out it's an entirely conscious decision.

In the latest IGN Three Red Lights podcast at the 19:40 mark David Clayman recalls a time when he talked to a member of the Sonic Unleashed team about this very issue...

"I asked one of the developers at TGS, you know I was like, come on everybody just wants Sonic running, like whats up with the werehog? And he was like, well, heres the deal... he runs at this miles per hour, kilometers per hour, and he laid out all of the statistics on how fast this hedgehog goes, and he was like:

In order to make a game where Sonic is running and everybody enjoys the whole thing we'd have to design this many miles of level,...
