Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Developed through a partnership with Platinum Games and Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance pits cyborg against cyborg in battle that blazes past every human limit!

The main character, Raiden, was once feared as the child soldier "Jack the Ripper" on the front lines of the First Liberian Civil War. Now, his combat mastery is channeled through a cyborg body as the strikes from his high-frequency blade slice even massive assault drones in two.

Raiden is contracted for VIP protection, military training and...
 

Video: Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita: Tough Choices, Colossal Bosses

100°
93w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has posted up a video today spotlighting the tough choices and colossal bosses in Soul Sacrifice for PS Vita below.

To quote: Soul Sacrifice is, as its name suggests, a game that asks the player to make an ultimate decision. It happens every time you defeat an enemy, actually - a choice to either save the enemy's soul, or sacrifice it for your own gain.

How you customize your character in this regard is crucial, since you're going to go up against some very large enemies. That scale, and the importance of making the player truly feel it, is at the heart of this piece from composer Wataru Hokoyama:

"An unbelievably gigantic enemy appears before you. For this piece, I focused on bringing out the full potential of a full scale orchestra by using bold orchestration to depict the immeasurable sense of scale of the enemy's size and power. I hope the score will make the players feel like, "there is no way I can beat an enemy with this kind of scale." - Wataru Hokoyama





Because there are gigantic, powerful enemies, it's important to build your character's stats and levels. Your decision of saving or sacrificing will affect what type of character you want to build.

Urban Trial Freestyle PS3: Customization and Challenges Detailed

50°
93w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has outlined Urban Trial Freestyle PS3 and PS Vita customization and challenge details today.

To quote: One of the really cool features in Urban Trial Freestyle for PS Vita and PS3 is the ability to customize your motorbike - but it's more than just picking out shiny new parts.

Bike customization is a key factor that directly affects your performance in both the Stunt and Time Attack Modes. Bike Customization allows you to adjust your bike to best meet the conditions on each of the available tracks.

Urban Trial Freestyle provides you with three main bike components to customize your vehicle - engine, chassis and wheels - customizing these parts influences three main parameters: speed, acceleration and handling.

As you advance and unlock more parts, you will ultimately have four engines, four pairs of wheels and four chassis to choose from, giving you altogether a possible of 64 combinations.

If you maximize the speed parameter, you will compromise balance (along with more rigid chassis), so you will perform better in Stunts like Highest or Longest Jump but worse in Flip Meter. When you want to beat a particular Stunt record, the choice is pretty simple and you would focus on one or two factors.

For Highest...

93w ago - Team 17 Digital Ltd Communications Exec Bethany Aston has announced today that Superfrog HD is leaping onto PS3 and PS Vita this year.

Below are the details, to quote: You may remember that last week we published a blog piece on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita release of Alien Breed, in which our Creative Director, Kevin Carthew, made a sneaky reference to potential future retro-revivals of other classic Team17 titles.

Today, we're unveiling our plans to release Superfrog HD later this year, 20 years after the regal amphibian's first appearance. Superfrog HD will feature all new graphics, and is set to make an appearance on both PS3 and PS Vita.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17's Managing Director, says, "We're extremely excited about bringing Superfrog HD to PS3 and PS Vita; it's the most requested game that our fans are always requesting to see make a return.

Now, with the 20th anniversary of the original Superfrog and the recent re-release of our classic survival-horror Alien Breed, we feel the timing has never been better."

Superfrog was originally released on Amiga in 1993 and received much critical acclaim:

The One Amiga - 93% - "With Team17's impeccable track record I was expecting Superfrog to be well above par but it's far more than that...
