109w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that a rare PSOne Classic, namely Vanguard Bandits, will be storming PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: When talk turns to classic strategy RPGs, most players immediately think of Tactics Ogre, Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy Tactics. These games could hold one's interest for hours upon hours.
Battles would be so intense and challenging that players needed to constantly find ways - no matter how small - to eke out an advantage that could be the difference between sweet victory or shameful defeat. Tomorrow, MonkeyPaw Games will revive the now-rare Vanguard Bandits on PSN and with it, resurrect the glory days of classic strategy RPGs.
Originally published as Epica Stella by Human Entertainment in Japan, Vanguard Bandits was released by legendary publisher Working Designs in North America. The PSone game was loaded with content: 60 different missions, three branching storylines, crazy plot twists and dialogue on the Ruin Branch, five endings and path-crossing narratives. Vanguard Bandits kept gamers glued to their screens for marathon gameplay sessions.
The game is played from an isometric camera view similar to most games within the SRPG genre. But the 3D battle animations...

Since its arcade debut, DAYTONA USA has stood the test of time as one of SEGA's top racing titles. The DAYTONA USA and retro game fans will certainly notice that every detail of the original hit has been meticulously preserved and polished for this ultimate version of DAYTONA USA.
113w ago - EA Community Manager Coulter Mulligan has posted up a video today and confirmed that the Need for Speed: The Run PS3 demo will arrive on PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: As PlayStation fans should already know, Need for Speed The Run is an illicit high-stakes cross-country race from San Francisco to New York. You'll be playing as Jack, who is a marked man and his only way out is to battle other 200 racers for a sweet $25 million dollar prize.
Starting October 18th, PS3 owners can get their hands on The Run demo on the PlayStation Store! Featuring the monster Lamborghini LP550-2 Valentino Balboni and the brand-new Porsche Carrera S, the demo will let you open them up in two locations set in the US.
(As a side note, don't forget that if you live in the US, Canada or the UK, you can win the new Carrera S in real life just by logging into your EA account!)
Desert Hills will have you jockeying for position through the sweeping Nevada highways, while Independence Pass presents an entirely different challenge.
An avalanche bears down on your Lambo (or Porsche) as you dice it up against an Audi R8, avoiding falling boulders and the onslaught of snow that's right on your rear bumper. At...
113w ago - Telltale Games Manager of Public Relations and Social Media Alan Johnson has announced that Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space will be hitting PSN tomorrow and shared a new video trailer on the title today.
To quote: The Freelance Police and Telltale Games can't stay away from the PlayStation Network for long!
After gracing the PSN in last year's Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse, the mostly loveable canine and rabbit-thingy duo returns on October 18th (woah, that's tomorrow) in another one of their off-the-wall adventures, Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space!
Always up to their neck fur in trouble as they get to the bottom of their cases, Sam & Max come face-to-face with some of the deadliest foes they've ever encountered, including Santa Claus, an emo vampire, and Satan himself. Well, two out of three isn't bad, right?
Sam & Max must survive some of the most exotic locales known to man and animal alike (the game is called Beyond Time and Space, remember?) if they're going to get themselves out of this somewhat death-defying adventure.
Of course, the PS3 version of Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space is chock-full of the Trophies that are coveted dearly by all, so your thorough...
113w ago - HandCircus founder Simon Oliver has shared a video today containing the Okabu soundtrack, and announced that the game is floating to PSN tomorrow!
To quote: Since we started development, a lot of people have commented on how much they love the music of Okabu, created by our very talented partners at Resonate.
Liam and the Resonate team have blown us away with what they've managed to create, and they've made a behind-the-scenes video to give you a bit of background. I'll let Music Director Liam Paton explain in his own words!
With the release of Okabu almost upon us, we wanted to share a short film that documents our last 12 months working on the soundtrack to the game. It has been such a great project to work on and hopefully the footage captures the fun that we had along the way.
Meeting and working with an amazingly talented group of musicians, learning to play the Kalimba properly and working out how to record six-feet wide Marimbas have been just some of the highlights of the year. It feels like a long time ago since Simon first showed us that early build of Okabu last October and it's really exciting to know that people will soon be playing the results...
