97w ago - D3Publisher Assistant Producer Miki Takahashi has announced today that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable invades the PS Vita on January 8th, 2013.

To quote: We are excited to share the news today that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will be available as a digital download on PlayStation Vita at the beginning of the year.

The game will be available on January 8th, 2013 in North America for $39.99 and players will get to experience all the intense action that the Earth Defense Force can endure.

What is really cool is that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is completely remastered from the original classic shooter (Earth Defense Force 2017) and with so many extras, players will truly get a new EDF experience that wasn't possible before.

Players will get to check out seven new levels plus dive into all the action with fan favorite Pale Wing, giving players the power to soar high over buildings in her jet pack and cause massive destruction from above.

You will also find some new enemies in the game, and blast them to smithereens with your choice of more than 230 weapons, including many new ones. For the first time, save the world with your friends in online multiplayer for up to four players in co-op and versus mode.

We look forward to hearing...

Addictive Puzzler Burn the Rope Singes PlayStation Vita Today

50°
97w ago - General Manager of RingZero Game Studio Franck Blaevoet has announced that their addictive puzzler Burn the Rope singes PlayStation Vita consoles beginning today!

To quote: We are happy to announce the release of Burn the Rope for PS Vita. Burn the Rope is an game where you - as the title implies - must burn as much rope as possible in each level.

To start burning the rope you simply tap PS Vita's front touchscreen wherever there is rope. Once the rope starts burning, you control the direction of the flame by rotating the screen.

The flame always burns up and it will burn out if it runs out of rope. The speed at which the flame travels along the rope is determined by the angle of the rope. You can also control the flame using the touch screen, by rotating the PS Vita or you can use the rear touchpad if you don't want your fingers to block the view.

In addition, you can pinch on the rear touchpad to zoom in or zoom out. This can help if you have really big fingers or are all thumbs. Oh, it also helps if you want to be more precise in starting the flame.

As you progress through the levels, you will encounter bugs crawling along the rope, different flame colors, and different colors of rope. Different bugs react differently to the flame: For instance, the...

To quote: What can a small team achieve in 10 months? How about porting a classic Oddworld console game to the PS Vita!

The heroes at JAW beavered away since the launch of the handheld in February 2012 to bring you the most the console has to offer.

Like the PS3 version before it, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD features high-quality graphical assets, better textures and high poly models. But this isn't a lazy port... The game makes use of PS Vita's touchscreen and rear touchpad for added controls and runs at the native screen resolution to give you a genuine Vita experience.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Hits PS Vita Today, Nab Bonus DLC

50°
97w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has announced that Sonic & All-Stars Racing hits PS Vita today, inviting fans to nab bonus DLC.

To quote: Why hello there, PS Vita owners! We heard you guys were hungry for an awesome multiplayer Vita racing game... and we're here to deliver. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed hits PS Vita today, and we're super-excited to share the game with all of you!

The game is out now both in stores and also on PlayStation Store. As you can probably guess, the game also isn't your average kart racer. The reason we have that fancy "Transformed" in the name is because your vehicle is going to transform in every single race: from a car to a boat to a plane!

My last few blogs here revealed quite a few old school Sega fans, so it's worth noting that the entire roster is essentially a love letter to gamers. Beyond your traditional Sonic cast, we've included the triumphant return of Vyse from Skies of Arcadia (a personal favorite of mine), Gilius from Golden Axe, NiGHTS, and many more. We've even got Wreck-it Ralph included as a playable character. (Don't worry, though - he's not going Turbo.)

One of the things I personally like most about the races is that "Transformed" doesn't just apply to your vehicles. It applies to the tracks, too!...
