103w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has announced today that Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is now live on PSN.
To quote: Few game series have as long and storied a history as Wizardry, which is the same age as Mario and helped inspire entire gaming genres.
Much has changed in this series over the years, but the base formula has remained the same: create your avatar, hire some help at the local guild, accept a quest or two, then crawl through a seemingly endless maze of corridors, traps, treasure chests and secret passageways... all in glorious first-person 3D!
But do mind the monsters. Everything from adorable Vorpal Bunnies to giant dragons, to a demonic face made out of corpses is traipsing through these same cavernous depths, always just around the next corner. Once you're spotted, it's time to fight - and if you're not strong, clever or fast enough to take them down, you're going to wind up as a spot on the wall - like all the others.
In the end, it comes down to tweaking your stats, finding or buying new equipment, keeping track of your whereabouts, exploring thoroughly and strategizing like there's no tomorrow. Think Etrian Odyssey, or Dark Spire, or... well... Wizardry!
There are 10 main characters to choose from, consisting...
104w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today alongside a video trailer that Lost Persona Chapter Persona 2: Innocent Sin is hitting Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We're willing to guess that until someone finally dares to make The Adventures of Methuselah Jones, it'll be hard to find a game that's been anticipated by fans for over a decade.
That's right, back in 1999--in between all those exciting millennium parties, of course--a new chapter in the acclaimed Persona series of roleplaying games came out in Japan and was ultimately never published in North America. This "lost" chapter, long anticipated by fans of Atlus, the series, and RPGs in general, is extremely overdue.
Apart from one other game coming out this year that has teased and tortured its fanbase for a similarly agonizing stretch of time (you know, the one that wants bubble gum but is out of it), there really isn't much else out there that fans have been waiting as long for.
Which is why we're so excited to announce that the wait is nearly over. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin, or rather, an enhanced version of it for PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, is finally coming to North America!
133w ago - Today Production Coordinator William Weissbaum has revealed alongside a video the God of War Collection: Lost Atlantis level for PS3, as follows:
With the recent release of God of War: Ghost of Sparta, players now have the opportunity to explore Atlantis on the PSP.
But this isn't the first time Atlantis was going to be featured in a God of War game. Back in 2005, Senior Level Designer Jonathan Hawkins was given his first assignment on God of War II - create an epic experience set in the fabled lost city of Atlantis.
Unfortunately, after months of work, Jonathan's designs had to be cut from the game due to some high-level changes. Afterwards, he went on to create some of the more memorable moments and puzzles in God of War II, such as the heart pounding Grapple Bridge sequence.
In honor of God of War Collection being release in HD on the PSN, we have delved into the Santa Monica Studio archives and found the never-before-seen layouts and sketches of this lost level.
In the video above, Jonathan walks us through his designs and the heartbreak...
158w ago - Capcom's European Brand Manager Richard Earl has unveiled a PS3 exclusive coming to Lost Planet 2 today- Helghast Troops!
To quote: Hot on the heels of the Monster Hunter skin announcement earlier in the week we now have more very special guests making their presence felt on the PS3 version of Lost Planet 2...
E.D.N.III is a harsh place, a planet where you must fight against vicious akrid and the hostile elements. It takes a particularly double hard bastard to take on these odds and they don't come much tougher than the Helghast Assault and Helghast Scout troops.
The most feared units from Killzone now get to take on Lost Planet 2's pirate factions and the deadly giant Akrid. These skins will be available to download for free on PSN from the end of June.
I also wanted to say thanks to all of you who posted comments on my last post. In answer to the question from LAClennell, yes, Frank West is also available in the PS3 version of the game!
158w ago - Today Capcom's Europe Brand Manager Richard Earl has announced alongside a video trailer that Lost Planet 2 is officially released for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: The sequel to Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions has seen massive changes take place across the planet of E.D.N.III.
We think we've got climate change issues? Earth has nothing on this place! The snow has melted across the planet to reveal all kinds of hostile environments in which you will have to adapt and do battle.
The local Akrid creatures are also still as angry as ever... As well as changes to the environment the game has also seen massive advances for the sequel.
The multi-player mode for the game sees you and three mates work together through 6 massive levels battling rival pirate clans, akrid creatures and massive (and I really mean MASSIVE) bosses. To help you take on all these enemies there is a huge array of weapons and Vital-Suits which amounts to some seriously hard firepower.
There's also a huge level of customisation in the game with which you can create your own unique pirate and unlock weapons, power ups and emotes. You can then take your own character into the online multiplayer modes to unleash some serious pwnage.
