Capcom: Dustforce Launches Today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita

11w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez announced that Dustforce launches today on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: In any other context outside of games, "S" rank being the pinnacle of grades wouldn't make sense. But since we're talking games here, we all know that the "S" rank is where it's at.

I have a theory that it originated in Japanese games (where many of the great gaming traditions started) and their disregard for A being the first letter of the alphabet. Whether or not that's true, the tradition of Capcom platforming lives on in Dustforce, which launches today on PS3 and PS Vita.

Originally made by Hitbox Team and released for PC, Dustforce caught our eye because it shares a few elements of the best platformers we've made: challenge, design, and soundtrack.

Dustforce seems very simple at first glance, and it really is. The idea is to move your acrobatic janitor through the level as fast as you can, while cleaning all the dirt, dust, and grime. You're given a few abilities to do this: double jumps, wall runs, dashes, etc.

There are also some tricks that you need to learn, like down dashing onto a slope for max speed, or learning to dash as soon as you land to maintain dash speed. Using these tools, it's up to you to find the...

Below are the details, to quote: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is the first entirely new Dragon Ball Z game in over two years, and it launches next week, January 28th, on PS3.

It comes packed with a number of attractive features, including team battle and co-op missions. It also allows players to create their own team of up to four players.

The game's battle system has also evolved from a "one-on-one" setup to more team battle focus.

With so many warriors fighting at once, these battles will surely give players a sense of camaraderie in hyper-fast gameplay.

14w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani announced that Assassin's Creed Liberation HD launches today on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Aveline de Grandpre is no stranger to PlayStation Assassins. Making her debut as the first playable female Assassin on PS Vita a little over a year ago, Aveline has quickly grown to be one of the most popular and praised Assassins in the series.

She even took on a few missions on the PS3 and PS4 versions of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (And if you haven't played those yet, be sure to download them for free from the AC4 main menu!).

Now, Aveline will arrive on PS3 in the fully-upgraded Assassin's Creed Liberation HD!

Liberation HD includes a complete graphical overhaul, fully-remastered audio, and all-new, never-before-played missions designed to engulf you even further into Aveline's world. For the first time on PS3, you'll be able to use Aveline's trademark whip in both combat and navigation.

Stalk secretly while hiding in plain sight, dressed in any of Aveline's three disguises. Dash effortlessly through the trees of the bayou, across verdant jungles and Mayan ruins, or perch over the sprawling port city of New Orleans.

Don't miss out on your chance to play as one of our most deadly Assassins yet.
 

Video: King Oddball Ends The World Launches on PS Vita Today

14w ago - 10tons PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi shared a fresh video announcing that King Oddball Ends The World launches on PS Vita today.

To quote: Greetings from still miraculously snowless Finland, PlayStation Blog readers! This week 10tons is back with another game to PS Vita, and what a game it is.

I'm quite frankly not sure what to say about King Oddball. Or, King Oddball Ends the World, as the full name goes in all its glory. The game is a bit peculiar, you see. You're probably better off trying the free trial.

While it's technically true that King Oddball falls in the same physics-based puzzle category as Angry Birds, the fruitfulness of the comparison doesn't last long. Sure, you lob objects at things in both games, but that's largely as far as the similarities go.





First of all, King Oddball is a bit weird. What the heck the titular main character even is? What is he a king of? Why is his tongue so absurdly long and stretchy? Why is he in such a foul mood? Your guess is as good as mine. All I know is the eccentric art style and accordion-heavy soundtrack fit the game perfectly.

Gameplay-wise, and this is probably the part everyone is the most interested in, King Oddball is equally uncommon:...
