Battle Tanks Coming to PSN this Month for PlayStation 3

250°
265w ago - Today Gameloft's Philippe Laurens has announced that Battle Tanks will be hitting PSN this month for the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Battle Tanks features World War II tanks that face off against each other in hopes to blow the other to smithereens. You can play against the AI or co-op with a friend in Campaign Mode to overcome 50 maze and paint ball-like levels.

There's also a fun multiplayer option also allows two to four people to challenge each other in Death Match modes or Capture the Flag mode.

Nothing beats blasting through walls with rockets, scorching enemies with flame throwers and carefully calculating the trajectory of bullets to win battles. The controls are simple: the left stick moves your tank and the L2 and R2 buttons are used for firing.

The aiming guide is highlighted when you hold down the L1 button and comes in extremely handy when you're trying to stealthily eliminate enemies on the field. To reduce the waiting time when a player dies, we added a new feature: Gun Turrets! When you've lost all your lives, you still can play and help your partner win the game.

As soon as an early version of Battle Tanks was installed on our PS3 test kit, it quickly became the most popular attraction in the Gameloft Studio. Everyone who passed...

Video: Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - Momiji Battle and a Challenge

50°
274w ago - Today Team Ninja Producer Yosuke Hayashi has shared both a challenge and a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 - Momiji Battle video via the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: Since this is the PlayStation Blog, I'm going to refrain from comparing Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 to Ninja Gaiden II (Xbox 360).

All you really need to know is that this isn't just a port and this will be the most complete Ninja Gaiden game released to date. Team NINJA has put out five Ninja Gaiden games in five years and we are confident that this is THE one you want to play and own!

Today, I'd like provide a quick overview on our three sexy, female PLAYABLE characters: Rachel, Ayane, and Momiji.

Rachel: Strong and powerful. Signature weapon - War Hammer. New weapon - Machine Gun!





Ayane: Young, purple-haired female ninja from the Dead or Alive series. Quick. Weapons - Dual short swords and a dagger with a pinwheel carrying her signature iris.

Momiji: Heroine from Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword, who trained under Ryu. How much sexier can a female ninja get? Weapons - Naginata long sword and bow.

Each character has its own unique set of weapons, moves and ninpos. If you thought you mastered Ryu, that won't be enough in Sigma 2! There...
 

Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament Hits PSP on June 30 '09

50°
276w ago - Lead Editor Mike Meeker has announced that Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament will be hitting Sony's PSP on June 30 2009, along with the following details:

Take a trip back in time, to a simpler era where people lived in friendly communities, the Industrial Revolution was in full bloom, and people rode about town in those new-fangled two-legged Trotmobiles.

That's right. The automobile is still around, but the walking Trotmobile is much more popular, especially in Orion City, where the game takes place. Incidentally, that's also where the nation's largest Trot company is headquartered, and the Orion City Trotmobile Battle Tournament decides who's the best Trot driver in the land.

At the start of the game, you're out to make a name for yourself as an up-and-coming Trotmobile driver, with an antiquated machine and no respect. Luckily, you'll earn the friendship of a mechanic named Venus, and the two of you will take on all comers in your quest for championship.

Of course, if the game was all about gladiatorial combat, it would get a little dull. You'll get a lot of say in how your character acts, and your responses might have an impact on what happens later... But I recommend going with your gut, because I and fellow editor Clayton Chan had a lot of...
 

Computer Games of the Future to Simulate Real Smell of Battle

50°
280w ago - It is one of the most memorable lines in movie history. As the air around him is rent by explosions and the whiz of bullets, Colonel Kilgore stands nonchalantly with hands on hips, sniffs the acrid breeze and declares: 'I love the smell of napalm in the morning.'

Now actor Robert Duvall's famous scene from the Vietnam epic Apocalypse Now could be re-enacted in millions of teenagers' bedrooms - thanks to technology that will allow computer games consoles to release the stench of war.

The Ministry of Defence is part-funding a project in which foul smells are released into the air during training videos so that recruits literally learn to sniff out trouble.

If the technology proves a success, it is expected to be taken up by manufacturers of top-selling consoles - such as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The team of psychologists and computer engineers developing the technology, on behalf of the British Army, plan to bombard troops with odours ranging from body sweat to diesel exhaust.

The aim is to teach recruits that the presence of some smells and absence of others could indicate danger.

At the moment, the technology is still in its infancy. But the scientists say it will soon be possible to design games in which the screech of tyres...
