5w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared a video spotlighting Assassin's Creed III: The Redemption for PS3 which arrives today.
Below are the details, to quote: The final chapter of Assassin's Creed III's three-part Tyranny of King Washington single-player DLC series is nearly upon us! The mad King George Washington has retreated within his New York stronghold and Ratonhnhake:ton must prepare an assault against Washington's incredible fortress.
As the stakes continue to rise in Ratonhnhake:ton's pursuit of Washington, so too must his strength and ferocity. Calling on an ancient source of might, Ratonhnhake:ton must once again risk his sanity to embark on a mysterious and dangerous Sky Journey in order to release the Power of the Bear.
The Power of the Bear enables Ratonhnhake:ton to strike the ground with such immeasurable force that all nearby enemies will be hurled into the air or crushed into the ground. Even more remote enemies will be staggered by the concentration of will and raw power, making the Power of the Bear an effective method of crowd control.

Using Saber's technology and development platform, we strive to create digital games that look like retail products. With our first release, God Mode, we wanted to create a lighthearted throwback experience, which focuses on arcade-style action over story. We came up with a classic premise - fighting to get out of Hell - then wrapped it in a third-person shooter with 3D graphics on par with full-price titles.
Finally, we added a slew weapons: plasma launchers, rail guns and what we affectionately call the "buzzsaw," in order to wipe out waves and waves of demonic hordes.
We decided that God Mode should be less about deep narrative and more about action. This approach gave us the ability to really go crazy and build a unique world full of plenty of characters to shoot, blow up, impale and maim.
After making this decision early on in the design process, the designers...
5w ago - Mass Creation Producer Artur Gosk has confirmed alongside a video trailer today that Draw Slasher is coming to PlayStation Vita on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: I'm Artur Gosk of Mass Creation from Warsaw, Poland. This is my first time here, so 'hello' to everyone.
I'm here to introduce you to our first PS Vita release - Draw Slasher. On April 23rd, players can test their fingers in what we believe is the most dynamic drawing game ever made for PS Vita, for $5.99.
Draw Slasher tells a story of Hanzo, not-so-high ninja, whose family was abducted by Pirate Monkey Zombies™. The basic game mechanics are one-of-a-kind - honestly, I don't think they could be any simpler.
The player will tap to run, draw lines to slash, and pinch the screen to pull up the abilities menu. The rest is done by Hanzo. Watch the trailer at the top of this post and see for yourself.
We have prepared three game modes: Story, endless Arcade and Challenges. Story is the main mode, where the player meets Hanzo and aids him in a quest to free his family. They will face various opponents, go up against tricky bosses and finally find out who sent the "rottents" to kidnap Hanzo's family.
