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.
79w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has officially revealed Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita including some video footage fresh from E3 2012 today!
To quote: Bet you didn't see this one coming, eh PlayStation Assassins? It's with a great deal of pleasure and a substantial amount of pride that we announce Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita!
Liberation introduces an all-new assassin named Aveline, and takes place in the rich, varied and vibrant environments of 18th-century Louisiana.
For a better idea of how Aveline operates in the more populated urban areas, and to see just a tiny tease of Aveline's stealthy activities in the bayou, you should totally check out the announcement trailer.
During 1765, Aveline stands directly in the path of Spanish forces seeking to overrun and take Louisiana while the rest of the coastal colonies are occupied with the American Revolution.
Aveline is a uniquely effective assassin, employing tactics from her mixed French and African lineage and using weapons like the machete, poison-dart blowpipe and dueling pistols.
You should take a moment to better acquaint yourself with Aveline by watching this video:
79w ago - Associate Producer Jenny Barbour has shared some videos straight from E3 2012 today of Wonderbook: Book of Spells which features writing from J.K. Rowling.
To quote: As you may have heard, PlayStation had some exciting news to reveal tonight.
For some time now, we have been working on a project called Wonderbook - an interactive book that uses Augmented Reality technology and PlayStation Move products to bring stories to life before your eyes.
The AR in Wonderbook has been developed by London Studio - the team behind EyeToy and EyePet. We believe that this is the most advanced AR out there, not least because it utilizes brand new technology which enables enhanced fidelity.
Wonderbook is a physical book that will act as a platform for a range of different titles that the whole family will enjoy. Games, reading experiences, adventures - the possibilities are endless for Wonderbook, and we can't wait to tell you more about the exciting things you can look forward to on this peripheral.
It truly is one book, with a thousand stories. In North America, Wonderbook will be available for $39.99 for both the book and Blu-ray game.

To quote: Last week I was in Rome with some friends from Capcom to attend their Captivate event, an annual showcase of what's in the pipeline for such game series as Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Lost Planet.
While I could spend a couple of hundred words on fountains and pizza, there is a lot of game news to cover; here's a handy digest of all the best bits.
Resident Evil 6 is coming sooner than you think
We got to see an hour-long presentation on Resident Evil 6 that oozed with new information, including the announcement that the game's release date has been brought forward to October 2nd, 2012.
The game features three playable characters - Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Jake Muller - with three unique, intertwining stories that the player can choose to play through in any order. While the action takes place in various locations around the world, we do know that a large portion is set in China.
If you're wondering who Jake Muller is, he is a new character, a mercenary in Eastern Europe, and the son of maniacal...
