70w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Lead Combat Designer Paul Edwards has posted up some Kratos and Radec strategy videos today for the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars video game.
Below are the details, to quote: I'm responsible for bringing everyone's favorite Spartan warrior, Kratos from God of War, into our world of ultimate crossover fighting with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
SuperBot Entertainment was incubated within Sony Santa Monica Studio, and their feedback and involvement ensured Kratos' transition from his game to ours was smooth.
One of the biggest challenges was taking this immensely powerful god-killing character from a single-player game and try to balance that design within a multiplayer fighting game.
To get you a better feel for Kratos' combat strategies ahead of the public beta later this fall, we've enlisted SuperBot's Game Director Omar Kendall and PlayStation.Blog's Sid Shuman to give you a breakdown of Kratos!
We wanted to pay proper homage to Kratos, so the approach we took was to have his playstyle reflect some of the most iconic weapons in God of War, such as the Blades of Chaos and Apollo's Bow. And we wanted his Supers...
In addition to checking out some of the best fighting games in the community and the heated competition between the fans, we're also here to make a very special announcement.
Tonight during an Exhibition Presentation, we are excited to announce two new challengers in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale - Heihachi Mishima and Toro Inoue!
Hailing from the ever-popular Tekken series, the original mastermind behind the Mishima Zaibatsu joins the battle!
Making his first appearance on the PSX in 1995, Heihachi is one of only five characters to appear in every iteration of Tekken thereafter, brawling his way through 17 years of King of Iron Fist tournaments. Heihachi fans will feel right at home with this newest interpretation.
Familiar moves such as his Electric Wind God Fist and Twin Pistons are intact and as deadly as ever. He excels at close-range combat,...

76w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has announced today that PS3 RPG Rainbow Moon rises on PSN this July 10th alongside some new video footage below!
To quote: Rainbow Moon is our upcoming role-playing game for PS3. It's been nearly two years since we started working on Rainbow Moon, so we can hardly believe that the game releases on PSN in just over two weeks – it'll hit PlayStation Store on July 10th for $14.99.
If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you'll enjoy a 20% discount, paying just $11.99, for the first two weeks after launch.
The last time we spoke, I explained Rainbow Moon's battle system. This time, I'd like to give you some insight into the game's character development system.
Many gamers think that character development is just about battling and leveling up. While that's partly true in Rainbow Moon, there's a lot more that can make or break a game.
Aside from RPG standards like experience points and gaining levels, in Rainbow Moon you can earn a resource called "Rainbow Pearls." You can exchanged these for improved character attributes or increased health and magic limits.
This system gives you a certain freedom in how you'd like...
77w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy is here today with a KickBeat PS Vita gameplay video and some Zen Pinball 2 updates from this year's E3 convention.
To quote: Zen Studios is fresh off an exciting and successful E3. Although our presence was modest, we still made a big impact.
KickBeat for PS Vita won Destructoid's Best of Rhythm E3 award, and Zen Pinball 2 was nominated for Best of E3 2012 by IGN and Best Portable Game by Destructoid. We are extremely honored to be included alongside the industry's best!
KickBeat sure received a positive response at E3. We think it's because there is nothing else like it, and a lot of people caught on to that.
There were also some people who simply told us we were crazy when they watched us play, but once they got their hands on the game they had BIG smiles on their faces. We have some new video that was released right before and then during E3, we wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to view as well.
The first video is the intro story chapter to KickBeat, setting up our Kung Fu style cheesy story. All of these story scenes are hand animated, and yes, we hired professional voice actors. As a matter of fact, at least one of the actors we've used came by the Sony booth to say "hi," as they are all from Los Angeles.
