122w ago - Tozai Games Director/Producer Brett Ballow has confirmed that Spelunker HD hits the European PSN Store tomorrow alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Good news my fellow Spelunkers of SCEE territories - the wait is over! It's time to charge up your headlamps and push your cave exploring tendencies to all new heights... er, depths: Spelunker HD is coming to the PlayStation Store tomorrow.
Throughout your arduous adventure you will encounter all the wicked elements of Timothy Martin's original 1983 masterpiece, but with so many newly concocted ways to die it may feel a bit like a devilish set-up... a cave of untold riches guarded by more pits, tricks, traps and more enemies than are stars in the night sky.
But the only stars you'll be seeing for weeks will be the ones circling your head as you run, jump, blast and scratch your way ever deeper towards the 100,000 meter finale. The 100 newly devised caverns may be set in 10 brand new high definition environments, but are just as behemoth in size and complexity as you remember and expect. And getting to the bottom is only half the battle.
But that's not the only catch; Spelunker, reputedly the weakest...
123w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has shared a video trailer and confirmed that Monochrome Racing will be speeding into PlayStation Minis tomorrow.
To quote: I'd like to talk about Monochrome Racing - a minis game that we are releasing on the 3rd of August.
Monochrome Racing is a unique racing game that takes place in a black and white world. And since the world is black and white, colour becomes the scarce resource that players compete for.
You start the race with your car completely charged; it is bright and full of colour. As you drive, the colour gradually vanishes away and in order to recharge the car, you need to drive over the coloured checkpoints. If you car turns monochrome it is knocked out. The goal of each level is to finish first and earn as much money as you can.
There are several types of power-ups randomly spread across the level. Once taken, they can increase your car's characteristics (speed for example), or can damage your opponents with bombs that leave a huge wave behind them. There is a garage where you can spend your money.
To get a better idea of what is going on in Monochrome Racing, please have a look at the game video:
124w ago - Capcom Community Senior Manager Seth Killian has announced today alongside a video that EVO 2011 starts tomorrow, which will also be streaming in PlayStation Home.
To quote: EVO is the World Series of Fighting Games, and it's this weekend, July 29th through the 31st, in Las Vegas.
EVO has been running for over a decade, and has grown from a small gathering of friends into the biggest fighting-game event on the planet, with thousands of competitors and fans attending from dozens of countries (46 countries are represented this year!).
The best of the best come not only to win prizes, but to claim a place in fighting game history, to earn a name, and to test themselves at the highest levels.
For fighting game fans like me, it is so exciting that my body literally starts tensing this far in advance because of what I know is to come. Wonder how little kids feel when they are on their way to Disneyland? For fighting game lovers, this is that feeling.
If you've always wondered why people still talk about arcades, EVO is as close as you'll come to seeing it for yourself. It's this big space, filled with people who are – at the same time – your friends and your enemies. You can feel the thrill, excitement, and anxiety of competition...
125w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has posted up a video trailer today announcing that One Epic Game is hitting PSN tomorrow.
To quote: My name is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who gave you MiniSquadron and 5-in-1 Arcade Hits, and I'd like to tell you about our next project - One Epic Game, which is now being released via PlayStation Store tomorrow.
All of gaming's most notorious stereotypes finally make an appearance in one epic game - aliens, zombies, fantasy, World War II and nuclear wasteland. One Epic Game puts you in the shoes of Alpha Dog, another muscular, one dimensional action hero with the task to negotiate with the enemies the only way they understand - a bullet in the brain!
As you have probably guessed by now, everything about One Epic Game is intentionally over-the-top. The name, the action, the main hero, humour... One Epic Game is a parody of all the gaming stereotypes we see in almost every action game. But it does not stop only with games, as you'll see us pay homage to some popular movies and much more.
126w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today that the Catherine demo is hitting PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: We're so excited to reveal that tomorrow (7/12), we'll be releasing a demo for our upcoming game that explores of the psychology and horror of relationships, commitment, and love–Catherine.
What exactly is the game's story? What kind of play style can you look forward to? All such questions and likely many more will be answered with the demo. And all you have to do is download it and play!
The demo will take you through the opening hour or so of the game, learning about Vincent (the protagonist) and his life. Catherine is all about its story and characters; the fact that you'll meet Vincent, his girlfriend, and his close circle of buddies in your short time with the demo should give you a great idea of what to expect in the full game.
And then there are the nightmares... You'll have to contend with a couple of those. The experience should give you an idea of just how much stress Vincent deals with throughout the game. And just how much fun you're in store for if you opt to pick a copy up.
We're also thrilled to start teasing glimpses of the finished goodies to be found inside the limited...
