19w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements posted up a video today spotlighting fighting together in Dragon's Crown on PS3 and PS Vita below.
To quote: The kingdom is boiling in war all around you, and brigands threaten the crown just as much as the encroaching orc forces.
But you, noble adventurer, have loot to earn and treasure to find. You have swords to wield and spells to sling! Welcome to Dragon's Crown. Your adventure begins next week.
Dragon's Crown, from the developers at Vanillaware, follows in the footsteps of Odin Sphere and Muramasa Rebirth. It blends eye-popping, hand-drawn animation with RPG-fueled combat.
An ambitious project, Dragon's Crown features six characters for players to select, and a bevy of stages to fight through. Though there are chests to open and skills to learn, the combat in Dragon's Crown is more like a side-scrolling brawler. A brawler you can invite your friends to!
Dragon's Crown encourages four-player cooperative play on both PS3 and PS Vita. You and your fellow adventurers can brave the dark and dangerous labyrinths together, building characters to complement each other's skills, or tempting fate with difficult combinations. Want to dive into a dungeon with four wizards?...
37w ago - Divekick Creator Adam "Keits" Heart has confirmed that the fighting community phenomenon Divekick is coming to PSN.
To quote: Divekick began as a late night joke. I asked aloud to my friend Stephen, "What if there was a game called Divekick, and the characters were Dive and Kick, and the buttons were Dive and Kick?"
He shot up and proudly announced to me that he could make such a game, and by morning we had a design document and we were ready to start. I didn't know it when I made the joke, but Stephen apparently knows enough to code a game!
As we developed the prototype, it became clear that this game was a great tool to clearly explain how deep a single move can really be, and that the high-stress, high-tension gameplay was keeping our test groups hooked. We couldn't get rid of them! We would invite a test group in for a four-hour session, and after fourteen hours they'd still be there laughing and raging at each other.
I'm so excited to finally show what we've been working on to the public. You just really have to try it for yourself to understand what it is all about! We've been playing it every day in serious competition in the Iron Galaxy office after lunch for six months now.
As our players' skill increases, and the number of mistakes they...
56w ago - Community Editor Victor Zuylen has posted up a video today which spotlights fighting the Helghast on film alongside a Killzone Intercept Q&A below.
To quote: Killzone Intercept is a fan-made live action short set during the ISA evacuation of Helghan in Killzone 3.
The 14-minute film follows a small ISA squad as they're ordered to prevent a large contingent of Helghast troops from intercepting the retreating ISA convoy. Outnumbered, the squad takes on the task with hopes of getting everyone off the planet alive.
Since its release on the Internet last week, Killzone Intercept has been a small sensation among Killzone fans and novices alike.
At the time of writing, the fan film has amassed nearly 170,000 views - and it's not showing signs of slowing down. We got in touch with director (and longtime Killzone fan) Brian Curtin to find out how Killzone Intercept came together.
PlayStation.Blog: Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get started making fan films?
Brian Curtin, Director of Killzone Intercept: I consider myself an Art Director/Graphic Designer by day and Independent Filmmaker by night. I've always been interested in the arts. Early...
91w ago - Sony Senior Producer Matt McEnerney at 345 Games has outlined Bellator MMA Onslaught details on building a more accessible MMA fighting game.
To quote: You may or may not heard of 345 Games, but we are part of Viacom Entertainment Group, which also houses cable TV channels like Spike TV and Comedy Central.
We've also launched a few recent PSN games such as Deadliest Warrior and Ugly Americans. I wanted to take some time and let you all know that our next title Bellator MMA Onslaught will be arriving to PSN this summer.
Bellator MMA Onslaught is an arcade-style fighting game grounded in the reality of an established MMA brand. If you've never heard of the Bellator Fighting Championships, it's an MMA organization that currently airs on MTV2 but will be moving to Spike TV starting in 2013.
Bellator is unique compared to other MMA leagues in that tournaments are held to determine who fights for the championship belt rather than having promoters select the fighter for a championship match. If you win, you move on.
If you lose, you go home. This philosophy works well in the video game space, where we are used to tournament-style progression...
