194w ago - Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has released the official 3D Dot Game Heroes PS3 trailer today!
To quote: 3D Dot Game Heroes, the PlayStation 3 exclusive that promises to inject retro-saccharin goodness directly into your corneas (those are part of your eyes, whippersnappers), has a full video trailer... And here it is!
So why should you be excited? Aside from the retro 3D visuals, ear-gratifying musical score, and extremely addicting, nostalgic action-adventure gameplay, you mean? Well... BECAUSE IT HAS TRAILER MUSIC!
Did you hear it? Like, the part with the chorus singing in the background? Who cares if the game is awesome (it is, by the way) when you have trailer music with voices chanting in the background!?
Oh, and to address a couple comments that have been popping up in posts relating to 3D Dot Game Heroes:
The huge swords evident in some screens/videos do NOT break the game. It is not a design flaw. You're only that big when you're at FULL health (intuitive, right?), and you'll rarely be at full health for long stretches of time.
Moreover, only near the end of the game will you have a sword THAT large, not to mention one with the ability to penetrate geometry...
195w ago - SCEE Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has shared video footage of this week's European PlayStation Home update today, which includes GAME, a Warhawk apartment and more as follows.
To quote: We know you've been waiting to find out more after seeing the GAME posters in Home Square; well, we're pleased to confirm that this week will see the launch of the GAME Moonbase in PlayStationHome!
The Moonbase, set on the Moon's surface, is a fantastic place for gamers of all types to hang out, socialise and pick up all the latest info on upcoming releases.
On the ground floor of the Moonbase you will find an information hub, with posters, internet terminals and a video screen. On the second floor you'll find everything you need to let your hair down: a dance floor, meeting places and more.
Being devoted to gaming, the Moonbase will also host a number of interactive elements and at launch you'll be able to jump straight into the Lunar Leap mini game. Take giant zero-gravity leaps across a crater full of special pads to complete the goals. Beat the time limit and you'll be rewarded with an exclusive GAME space suit outfit.
That's not all. Also launching into Home this week is the Warhawk personal space, along with a range of furnishings. There's no better...
