PlayStation Mobile: EcoFish Makes a Splash Tomorrow

50°
107w ago - Eclipse Games Founder Eduardo Jimenez has announced today that EcoFish is making a PlayStation Mobile splash tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: EcoFish is a game I personally wanted to do for a long time. It's based on games from my childhood - games that I loved but for some reason haven't been re-done and re-invented a million times already.

If you liked old-school platformers you'll find lots of new games still being made in that genre, but if you look for games like QiX, Styx or Gal's Panic, you're not likely to find many.

It wasn't hard to convince the rest of the team since they played those classics too and loved the 'genre' as much as I did!

The core mechanic of the game consists of drawing lines starting from the borders of the playable area enclosing parts of it that are 'acquired'. If you enclose an enemy within the area you acquire, it is destroyed. We thought this kind of gameplay would fit particularly well on touchscreens and, of course, the PS Vita.

There are different objectives in every level, such as destroying a concrete enemy, eliminating all enemies, acquiring a certain percentage of the screen, and so on. We have deviated there from the original formula, as well as with the enemies.

We designed a...
 

Video: Wizarbox: Realms Of Ancient War Makes PSN Its Battlefield

118w ago - Wizarbox Project Manager Julien Millet has posted up a video today announcing that Realms Of Ancient War is making PSN its Battlefield.

To quote: Hey there, it's Julien from [Register or Login to view links] here with word on our new game, Realms of Ancient War.

RAW has been in development for over two years, inspired by our deep love of hack 'n slash games. We've played practically every game in the genre (including some pretty obscure PS2 efforts) to seek out the best ideas from the past.

The rest of our inspiration comes from our designers, who came up with crazy ideas to give our title its own signature fast-and-furious style of action. Every decision was met with one simple question: "Is this a fun idea?"

• Do you want to spawn dozens of huge swords from the ground? Yes!

• Should the screen be covered with hordes of enemies, all hell-bent on the goal of killing you? Oh yes!

• What about taking mind-control of gigantic enemies, turning around and pounding the &@*% out of their minion buddies? Hell, YES!

• Maybe you could ride a flashy pink pony and battle your enemies with a giant toilet brush? Uh... let's forget that idea...



 

Sony Makes Giant PlayStation 3 and PSP Sand Sculptures

280w ago - In keeping with the PlayStation Beach Resort theme we have going today, here is another bit of related news.

Siliconera (linked above) has posted up some pictures (below) taken from Korea's world sand sculpting championship where Sony made giant PlayStation 3 (dubbed "SandStation 3") and PSP sand sculptures.

To quote: Donghae City was the held the first Korean Invitational World Sand Sculpting Championship. What does this have to with video games?

Sony Computer Entertainment Korea showed up and joined the sand sculpting fun.

That's what SCEK made and they seem quite proud of it since they sent out a news bulletin reporting their marketing stunt.
 

Capcom CFO Makes Statement on Bringing Resident Evil 5 to Wii

292w ago - After recent rumors, Capcom's Chief Financial Officer Abe Kazuhiko has updated his statement about Resident Evil 5 coming to Wii.

To quote: "Up until now, after releasing our PS3 and XBox 360 games, we have brought them to Wii.

Basically, this is the approach we are considering taking."

More ports? Even Peter Moore knows thats a bad word.

With Dead Rising being on Wii expect more ports to come out of Capcom's camp.
 

Soulcalibur Makes its Portable Debut on Sony's PSP Console

295w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell confirms the news today that Soulcalibur will indeed be making its portable debut on Sony's PSP console.

To quote: Soulcalibur is officially coming to the PSP this summer. Called Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, this marks the series' first foray into handheld consoles... and of course, what better place to debut than the PSP.

Yesterday, Namco Bandai invited us to San Francisco for the unveiling, where a demo of Broken Destiny proved that it is already looking graphically impressive on the PSP. While Namco is remaining relatively tight-lipped on specifics for the time being, I fired off a few questions to Director Noriyuki Hiyama.





Unfortunately we were shooting in a loud room speaking through a translator, but I think you'll get the point about the new characters, multiplayer and the possibility of secret content.

Check out the vid for his responses. And drop us a note with your burning questions, as we'll most likely be getting more time with the game/team at E3 in June!
