142w ago - Today Producer Brynley Gibson at Zoe Mode has shared a video announcing that Chime Super Deluxe hits PSN on March 29, 2011 and includes four-player multiplayer.
To quote: We're excited to announce that Chime Super Deluxe will be released and available to download from the PlayStation Store on 29th of March in the US. We can't wait!
In the meantime, I would like to tell you a little more about what Super Chime Deluxe has in store for you.
To play the game, you have to place down irregular-shaped blocks one at a time on the grid, fit them together 3 X 3 or more and you will build a quad. The quads score you points and this creates coverage, which fills the grid.
The challenge is to fill the grid before the time runs out. This core rule set alongside multipliers, time bonuses, block fragment crashes and more create an addictive and mesmerising strategic experience.
But where does the music come in? Each block you place plays a note, and a different note depending on where it is placed. Every quad you create plays a longer musical phrase depending on the size and shape of it. The backing track is driven forward depending on how much coverage you have. The composition of the music is therefore remixed by you as you play.
143w ago - Today XSEED Localization Specialist Jessica Chavez has announced that The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky hits PSP on March 29, 2011.
To quote: If an all-consuming desire for a meaty RPG replete with a shiny metal Bracer badge, soundtrack and poster* should sacrifice your wallet to the gaming gods, your PSP is ours for the next 50+ hours of your life. You will be held hostage to its crushing narrative, and YOU WILL LIKE IT.
Salutations, readers. My name is Jessica Chavez, and I have worked on such delights as Half-Minute Hero and Rune Factory: Frontier, and inserted something salacious about Pikkards into Ys I&II. I also toiled for months on the enormity that is The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, which hits the PSP on March 29, and I shall tell you about it today.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (also known affectionately as "TitS" thanks to the tender caress of the internet) is an RPG that was first released in 2004 for the PC. It gained fame and notoriety on the computer circuit by virtue of being both massive and the first 3D iteration of its kind within the Legend of Heroes series.
Fast-forward to 2011 and you now have a PSP version crammed with all the original goodness, polished to a blinding sheen...
143w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN Game Store updates today, as follows:
We're launching a new round of Special Offers - this time with a special PlayStation Move focus to help you get the most out of your magic wands.
We've got some great third party titles like Flight Control HD, DeadStorm Pirates, Planet Minigolf and Swords and Soldiers at as much as 50% off, and some of our great Move-enabled first party PSN games too. Take a look and see if anything grabs your attention.
In the field of new titles we've got Slambolt Scrappers from our friends at SOE - a game that combines Tetris, Tower Defence and maybe... Joust? Try it, you might well like it!
Demo-tastic today as well, with the Crysis 2 Multiplayer demo, Heroes demo and Tiger Woods, so plenty of options to choose from.
DLC today too - you can expand your roster in Marvel vs Capcom 3, expand your décor in The Sims 3 or expand your fish collection in My Aquarium. So go... expand!
You may have noticed that the PSone title we've got this week, while undeniably awesome, has slightly less in the way of the living-challenged, sinister mansions and poor voice acting than perhaps I had led you to believe last week. I'm sorry guys...

143w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez has posted up the new PS3, PSP and PSN releases for this coming week today, as follows:
This week delivers a long list of titles that will make your stack of backlogged games tower even higher.
I'm guilty of name dropping, especially when games like Slam Bolt Scrappers, Homefront and Parasite Eve arrive on PlayStation 3 and PsOne Classics this week.
You'll also get your chance to try PlayStation Move Heroes when the demo hits PSN, followed by demos for Mortal Kombat (open to all PSN users) and Crysis 2 Multiplayer.
Homefront - The year is 2027. The world has suffered a decade-long energy crisis, and economies have crumbled. Reduced to a mere shadow of the super power it once was, the United States became the target of a North Korean takeover.
Featuring a compelling single player story crafted by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn), Homefront immerses gamers in an interactive and cinematic FPS experience where they will assume an infantry role or take command of a wide variety of aerial and ground vehicles.
