3d ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow posted up some new videos today announcing that Big Band is coming to Skullgirls Encore on PS3 this Tuesday.

To quote: He's almost here: Big Band, Skullgirls Encore's first male character, arrives for free next Tuesday, April 22nd!

Once a regular beat cop known as Ben Birdland, he fell flat when he got on the wrong side of New Meridian's corrupt police force. Birdland was broken and bent out of shape by his former colleagues, but was tuned up by Dr. Avian and ASG Lab 8. Now he is armed with a full ensemble of pneumatic weaponry, transforming him into the full fortissimo instrument of justice: "Big Band."

Big Band is Skullgirls's first male character, and lives up to his name with unique gameplay mechanics that take advantage of his tremendous size and musical motif.





Big Band's a high risk / high reward sort of character - he has a versatile and powerful moveset...

6d ago - XDev Associate Producer Neil McPhillips announced today that PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlour is coming to PS Mobile.

To quote: It's not too long now until PS Vita Pets launches in June, but maybe that's too long? So to keep you going until then we're launching a mobile app, PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlour.

We wanted to give people the opportunity to get to know the pups in advance of the full game's release and experience one of the core aspects at the same time, so we put together the app to allow players to run their own puppy pampering parlour.

Each day a new dog will arrive into your parlour and you'll be tasked with meeting their specific needs through a range of activities such as taking them for a walk, showering, feeding and playing a number of different games.

Completing these games and looking after your pups will also earn you points that you can use to upgrade your parlour and unlock new items and clothes.

As you can see, there's loads going on! One of the really cool things about the app is that you can unlock exclusive costumes that can be transferred...
