18w ago - Capcom Community Manager Greg Moore has announced alongside a Face Your Demons video trailer that DmC Devil May Cry officially hits Blu-ray and PSN today!
Below are the details, to quote: The time to face your demons has arrived! DmC Devil May Cry for PlayStation 3 is in stores now, and downloadable from PSN in a day-and-date digital release.
We're really delighted with the final project and I think Ninja Theory did an amazing job of combining existing elements of previous DmCs, while injecting their own flavor into the franchise.
Players can definitely expect to see both radically new elements and returning staple elements from past Devil May Cry games.
New to the gameplay are the Demon and Angel powers, which allow (and demand) Dante to switch fluidly between separate sets of abilities and weapons. The Demon side delivers heavy-hitting but slower attacks, while the Angel side unleashes swift area attacks that are relatively low damage.
Dante can now also use grappling chains to propel himself, enemies, and other objects between two points, allowing for a new emphasis on positioning, crowd control, aerial combat, and some flashy traversal.
As far as the gameplay experience, you'll see a return to the series' trademark mixture of gunplay and swordplay...

32w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff has announced today that Dishonored will unleash supernatural powers tomorrow on Blu-ray and PSN.
To quote: In one day, we will release Dishonored, our new first-person action game developed by the talented team at Arkane Studios. Dishonored puts you in the role of Corvo Attano, bodyguard of the Empress of Dunwall.
A pretty good gig... until you're falsely accused of killing her, kidnapping her daughter, and subsequently imprisoned and tortured by the sinister Lord Regent. Despite this, you remain the best hope for saving Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is on the verge of dystopia.
Early in your adventure, you will receive "The Outsider's Mark" -- a mysterious tattoo on your left hand that grants you supernatural abilities. As you progress through the game, this mark will allow you to unlock new abilities, each of which can be upgraded to a second level for improved functionality.
Below is a look at two of the development team's favorite abilities:
Devouring Swarm summons a vicious swarm of rats that will consume corpses...
