Jaywalkers Interactive: Kick & Fennick Launches on PS Vita in 2014

50°
34w ago - Jaywalkers Interactive Co-Founders Vincent Bonefaas and Laurens Bruins announced today that Kick & Fennick launches on PS Vita in 2014.

To quote: We didn't count, but we must have saved the world thousands of times. Like many of us, we spent most of our childhood being superheroes dressed in cardboard armor with a towel around our neck, having the most amazing and epic adventures.

Thankfully, now that we're adults *cough*, video games still allow us to immerse ourselves in imaginary worlds, without looking like fools throwing pinecone grenades at each other. But this image of us as kids, running around the woods with a big stick, is thoroughly stuck in our minds.

This is where the idea for Kick & Fennick originated, remembering the fun we had saving the world, and our friends, with our massive stick weapons.

There are no complications as a kid, but if a real ten-year old boy would fire one of our imaginary super guns, he would surely launch himself through the air just from the weapon's recoil... which would be pretty damn cool!

We love big, cinematic game experiences. We're just a two-man team, but we couldn't have Kick just jumping around a bit using his weapon.

No, he needs to jump across huge skyscrapers, breaking through walls...

35w ago - Sports Interactive Studio Director Miles Jacobson announced today at Gamescom 2013 that Football Manager Classic Lines up their PS Vita debut.

To quote: Hello everyone in PlayStation land! My name is Miles and I'm the Studio Director at Sports Interactive.

We're a development team based in London which has been making games for over 20 years, specializing in football management games.

You may well have played our Football Manager Handheld games in the past on your PSP, or even Football Manager on the PC or Mac if you have one of those home computer things.

As you may have seen during the gamescom PlayStation press conference, we've confirmed tonight that Football Manager is coming to PS Vita! Or, to be exact, Football Manager Classic is coming to PS Vita.

So what is Football Manager Classic?

Well, it's a mode that was added into last year's PC and Mac version of Football Manager as a quicker way to play the full Football Manager experience.

It has all you'd expect from FM - our huge database of players researched by a team of over 1,500 scouts around the world, a 3D match engine showing the action, a full tactics module, realistic transfers, AI that makes both players and managers act as you'd expect them to in the...
 

Video: How to Shmup: Mamorukun Curse from the Makers of Ikaruga

50°
43w ago - UFO Interactive Games Producer Andrew Wang posted up a video today on how to Shmup: Mamorukun Curse from the makers of Ikaruga below.

To quote: Mamorukun Curse! was originally developed by G.rev, the co-developers with Treasure Co. Ltd. on games such as Ikaruga and Gradius V.

The rush I got when I first started to understand the ammo-absorbing mechanic in Ikaruga was nothing short of exhilarating, as I'm sure many of you experienced the same!

A great shmup (shoot-em-up) will usually have one or two defining mechanics that makes it stand up way above the rest. For Mamorukun Curse!, that mechanic is the Curse Bullet.

The Curse Bullet is the key to surviving the game's toughest fights, but can also be the double-edged sword that causes the player's downfall. Specifically, the "Curse Bullet" will make a Cursed zone that weakens enemies' defenses but at the same time boosting their shooting pattern.

When defeated, a Cursed enemy gives off the highest amount of candy, Mamorukun Curse!'s collectible items for score, than when defeated normally.



 

Remember Me: New Art, Interactive Journal and Director PS3 Q&A

50°
48w ago - Dontnod Entertainment Creative Director JMax shared some fresh art, an interactive journal and a PS3 Q&A for Remember Me with fans today.

To quote: Hi everyone, this is Jmax, Creative Director at the developer Dontnod Entertainment. We are the guys behind Capcom's newest (and most exciting!) title, Remember Me.

The game will be coming out on the 7th June in Europe and in the run down to the launch I would like to bring you some news about the game, let you know what is going on and hopefully answer your questions.

Remember Me takes place in Neo-Paris in 2084. In this future, thanks to an implant known as Sensen, you can record everything you see, hear and feel, giving birth to a memory trading economy where you can share or even sell those memories.

As cool as all this sounds there is a potentially more sinister side to this world as one company, Memorize, controls all the memory data (imagine having a smart phone and social media directly tapped into your brain!) and this begs the question who is watching the watchmen?

Not everyone in Neo-Paris agrees with one company having so much power and set out to bring Memorize down, this group call themselves the Erorrists. In the...

60w ago - According to a recently uncovered Sony patent, it appears they are planning to implement a new form of interactive advertising in their next-generation PS4 / PlayStation 4 gaming console.

Below are the details from DualPixels.com (linked above), to quote: "SCEA is going next gen even with advertisements. Discovered just before PS4's imminent announcement, this new Sony patent shows new motion tech which allows you to interact with the advertisement.

This new form of marketing allows users to speed up the time of the ad by collaborating with it to complete virtual food orders; think Burger King.

The patent also seem to have a ton of social inter-connectivity as rumored that PS4 would sport large amounts of integration with the social networking universe. Check it out for yourself."
