30w ago - XSeed Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has posted up a video today on Ragnarok Odyssey, a giant-sized RPG that is assaulting PS Vita today!
To quote: Are you ready, guys? Because right now it's Ragnarok Odyssey 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 Mercenary Edition, 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 Gods Eater, 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...
33w ago - XSeed Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has revealed the cards and classes in Ragnarok Odyssey for the PS Vita handheld console today.
To quote: It's Ragnarok Odyssey time! I wanted to share more details about the game's beloved card equipment system, as well as the six job classes available in-game, so if you're all about the meat of the gameplay, this will be an informative blog entry for you.
If any of you have played Ragnarok Online, you may already be familiar with how cards work in Ragnarok Odyssey. For those who haven't played, don't worry! I'll explain. You will find cards in shops and from defeated monsters.
Depending on what monster you defeat, different things will appear on these cards, such as their likeness, rarity, and specific new abilities and stat boosts. Taking advantage of this is easy, as all armor in the game has a Card Capacity gauge - and the more you upgrade your armor, the more cards you can equip.
It's a nifty little system for when you need an extra boost in firepower to defeat an ugly FrostGiant (they really aren't all that cute) or a little extra HP.
How else do you change abilities in this game? Naturally, you change job classes. Ragnarok Odyssey provides six awesomely awesome job classes for you to choose from:...
41w 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...
138w ago - Namco Bandai Games America Brand Manager Laili Bosma has shared a video today showcasing Enslaved: Odyssey to the West PS3 alongside a Q&A session, as follows:
Recently we began a Q&A segment, and we're never ones to shy away from a great opportunity, so here are the answers to some of the questions we've received.
What gameplay elements in Enslaved will help players become as emotionally invested in Trip as we will be in Monkey?
Now that you've played the demo, you've probably seen how Trip and Monkey meet. Their relationship starts out as a harsh one; Trip hacks a slave headband and places it on Monkey's head. If he tries to leave her or leave her in danger, then he feels the consequences. Basically if she dies, he dies.
But despite the intensity of this initial meeting, you'll learn over the course of the story that Trip has her own motivations, fears, and complexities. She's not a weak woman by any stretch of the imagination.
And as she and Monkey take their journey to the West, they also begin to bond and learn more about one another. As much as this is about a physical journey, the characters are also taking an emotional one as well.
140w ago - Namco Bandai Games America Brand Manager Laili Bosma has shared a video announcement today that Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is coming to PS3 on October 5, and revealing how fans can win a limited edition statue.
To quote: Ninja Theory has upped their game with ENSLAVED: Odyssey to the West, with their development focus on merging story-telling and gameplay.
ENSLAVED features a rich narrative, deep and believable characters, some of the best talent in the video game, music and motion picture industries, and a production value that's second to none. It also combines puzzle-solving, combat and platforming to keep the gameplay varied and intriguing.
ENSLAVED: Odyssey to the West takes place 150 years in the future, after several wars have obliterated nearly all of the planet's population. In this post-apocalyptic future, mysterious slave ships harvest remaining survivors and take them out west, for unknown reasons.
You'll take on the role of Monkey, a loner who has spent his whole life on the run. Monkey finds himself captured by one of the slave ships and uses his brute force to break free from his cell. Meanwhile, he notices a young girl named Trip who uses more refined hacking skills to also break free, though she inadvertently sets the ship on a crash course...
