24w ago - Grimm Bros Co-founder Ash Monif announced today alongside a video trailer that Dragon Fin Soup is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: Hello, we are Grimm Bros, nice meeting you all! We are Ash Monif and Randis Albion, long time friends and industry veterans.

Over the last twelve months, we've been working with a small band of indie developers and today we're proud to share with you our debut title - [Register or Login to view links]!

Dragon Fin Soup is part roguelike and part classic console RPG, with a persistent world and story. It plays like a mix of Chocobo's Dungeon and Secret of Mana, and it comes with two main gameplay modes. Story Mode focuses on storytelling, character progression, and plays more like a classic RPG, while Survival Mode plays more like a Roguelike and features permanent death.

Dragon Fin Soup is a turn-based game - not quite like Final Fantasy Tactics or XCOM, but more like Shiren or Chocobo Dungeon where foes take their turn simultaneously with the player, allowing for more dynamic and fast-paced gameplay.





The world of Dragon Fin Soup is inspired by fantasy and fairy tales and is set on Asura, a giant space turtle. We are not...
 

Video: Assassin's Creed IV on PS4: A Truly Next-Gen Experience

350°
51w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani posted up a video today showcasing Assassin's Creed IV on PS4, proclaiming it is a truly next-gen experience on PlayStation 4.

To quote: A lot of people have asked us what kinds of technical advancements can be expected from Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on PS4, so we asked Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier to give us a couple of examples...

He went a little nuts, and delivered an entire video detailing a ton of improvements.

CAUTION: Things are about to get a little techy, so put on your coder hats!

Some of the highlights include our use of real Beaufort scale waves for a realistic ocean and the new sea engine, which follows real world physics. Complex shaders work to give the ocean that translucent appearance.





Each raindrop is an individually lit object, puddles accurately mirror the world around them and volumetric fog accepts and reflects light from different sources. Dynamic Navmeshes (three dimensional objects you can run around on) ensure that you can jump from one ship to another without encountering weird collision issues, and can seamlessly interact between two ships involved in a boarding action.

We can use the...
 

Video: The Dark Sorcerer: A Next-Gen Comedy E3 2013 Trailer

64w ago - Quantic Dream Director David Cage announced news today on The Dark Sorcerer: a next-gen comedy at E3 2013 alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: We Love Prototypes

In 2005, Quantic Dream started working on a short film in real-time 3D called The Casting, using the PS3 graphic engine we had just developed.

Our initial objective was to make a technical prototype to test the limits and performance of this new engine, but Sony, with whom we had not yet started working, quickly encouraged us to present it publicly at its booth at E3 in order to illustrate the graphic potential of the PS3, which was launched that same year.

Everything we learned from making the short, particularly the immense difficulty of creating emotion in real time, but also the importance of the actor's performance, facial motion capture, the challenge of lip synchronization and especially eye animation, would enable us to develop Heavy Rain.

After this somewhat fortuitous first effort (which succeeded in attracting the attention of the press and players, and largely contributed to creating interest in the small French company that is Quantic Dream), the idea of making it a recurrent principle quickly developed.

After all, our prestigious and infinitely more talented...
