Some of our personal faves now available at the Video Store
188w ago - Bend Studios Creative Director John Garvin has unveiled today that on June 1, 2010 Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow will be heading to Sony's PS2 console.
To quote: I'm excited to announce that Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow will be available for purchase on the PlayStation 2 on June 1!
Coming just a couple of years after our first PSP game, award winning Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, our goal was to create another great chapter in the saga of Gabe Logan, blowing out both the game play and production values to create a state-of-the-art Syphon Filter experience.
We got Azam Ali to write an amazing soundtrack, Syphon's first theme song with lyrics and vocals. Azam's haunting score is a large part of why this game is one of my personal favorites.
209w ago - While currently in development and set to launch for both PC and Macintosh first, the Longbox Digitial Comics service is also being tested as a new addition to the Xbox Dashboard.
To quote: "Working in a similar way to iTunes it will allow you to browse, purchase and then read a broad variety of comics directly from your console. Functions such as zooming in and out will also be available to those with a scrutinising eye.
Featuring works from celebrated publishers such as Top Cow and Image Comics, users will be able to either subscribe or purchase specific titles from a whole range of both current series as well as archival collections.
CEO of Longbox, Rantz Hoseley states "With the Twitter/ Facebook/ Last.fm integration it was very obvious to us that this was a great fit."
Whilst prices are yet to be confirmed, Hoseley has said that they were aiming at 99 cents for single issues and $10 for a 20-issue archival edition for US audiences."
214w ago - According to the latest Famitsu Magazine, the Playstation 3's BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will be ported to the PSP under the name of BlazBlue Portable.
This is definitely an interesting move considering BlazBlue on the PS3 featured Remote Play support - allowing you to play the game on the PSP already.
To quote: "The latest Famitsu issue revealed that BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger will be heading to the PSP in the near future under the name, BlazBlue Portable.
The high-definition 2D fighting game was released this summer for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A sequel, titled BlazBlue: Continuum Shift was revealed in September for the two aformentioned home consoles.
It should be interesting to see how the fluid and fast-paced fighting game fare on the PSP when BlazBlue Portable comes out in Japan on February 25th."
215w ago - Today Nintendo unveiled that Excitebike World Rally will be heading to WiiWare on the Nintendo Wii this November 9th.
