4w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo confirmed that The Guided Fate Paradox is out today on PS3 with details below.
To quote: Hey, doods! Your humble Prinny David from NIS America again, and I'm here to ask: are you prepared? Have you made peace with your social life?
Because The Guided Fate Paradox is finally upon us - out in stores today and on PlayStation Store. Now then, gather ye 'round, that we may bear witness to the glory that is this story-based roguelike!
In The Guided Fate Paradox, Renya Kagurazaka is an ordinary high school student who wins a mall lottery and becomes a god! Guided by an angel named Lilliel, he learns that a god's job isn't just sitting around in the clouds.
He must help people (And mermaids, and zombies...) by guiding them to their proper fates - a task that can only be done in the Copy World, which renders each person's fate into a different, randomly-generated dungeon. There, Renya can lay a hammer of judgment down on the aberrations holding these folks back from their fates.
And you don't just have hammers, either. You've got tank treads, a Prinny hat, electric plug hands there are hundreds of items you can equip, each with their own unique "Divine Skill" attached, which will help you blast your way through these dungeons....
4w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher confirmed that CastleStorm is out today on PS3 and PS Vita platforms.
To quote: If you like building castles, destroying castles, knights, vikings, war, weapons, spells, troops, multiplayer, PS3, PS Vita, cross buy, well... CastleStorm is your game! CastleStorm launches today for both PS3 and PS Vita.
For those of you getting ready to play later today, we thought it would be nice to give you some tips on using the ballista, the primary weapon mounted just above your castle's gate.
Starting out, you'll utilize the low-powered, quick-spawning javelin, while the vikings fire harpoons. As the game progresses, you'll unlock more projectiles for your arsenal and upgrade these with gold you earn during missions.
The javelins and harpoons have the shortest regeneration period and will be your best asset in early levels. Getting five kills at once activates a shooting frenzy, which means you can shoot all projectiles in rapid succession for a few seconds. No regeneration period means you can do a lot of damage in a short amount of time, so don't hesitate to fire away.
While javelins are meant for targeting specific enemies on the ground, the Knights' Apple Grenade can either be used to take out a cluster of oncoming enemies,...
4w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared details today on cleaning up with Dustforce for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.
To quote: Sprint, leap, and clean towards victory. Dustforce celebrates precision platforming, and embraces its 2D roots by spritzing the whole experience with colorful characters and a grooving anime twist. In Dustforce, players gun for the best time and most complete run through more than 50 stages.
Originally developed by a small indie team for the PC crowd, Capcom is bringing Dustforce to PS3 and PS Vita. All the charm and addictive play of the PC version returns, along with online multiplayer (ranked and private), shiny Trophies, and cross save support. Now the PlayStation community can train to become the greatest of ninja janitors the world has ever known.
The Capcom crew brought Dustforce by for Justin and me to play. Listen to our interview with them below, then read on for our full impressions.
Dustforce gives players room to breathe. At the start, stages are short, simple, and teach newcomers how to successfully navigate obstacles and clean up the most dust to achieve high scores. Jumps are cozy, and the levels themselves are designed to pull the player into a flow.
One run through a stage reveals the layout and enemy placement,...
4w ago - CEO Francois Potentier at Mighty Rocket Studio announced that Final Exam is out today for PS3.
To quote: Hi everybody, this is Francois from Mighty Rocket Studio. This is our big day, because Final Exam launches on PlayStation Store. It's available for $9.99.
Final Exam on PS3
Do you like action games or beat 'em ups? If so, I encourage you to try the demo. In Final Exam, you can maim monsters with baseball bats, shotguns, flamethrowers, and many more.
There's a solo mode, a co-op mode for two players on the same screen, and a multiplayer mode, with up to four players online. You'll have plenty of fun in solo mode, and even more fun when playing in multiplayer mode.
Choose your favorite character: Brutal Joe (the quarterback), Cassy (the street dancer), Nathan (The geek, my favorite!) and Sean (the handsome bad boy). Learn to take advantage of each one's unique characteristics, make them evolve, and discover their most powerful attacks through eight monster-packed missions. We can promise many hours of fun.
There's also a time attack mode that you'll have to unlock. One particular guy on the team that really, really likes getting high scores inspired us. In this mode, you have seven minutes to get the highest possible score. So you'd better unlock all...
