Double Eleven: PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD Coming to PS Vita

50°
69w ago - Double Eleven Limited Chief Operating Officer Mark South announced today that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD is coming to PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Double Eleven, Ltd been entrusted with the keys to the kingdom for classic series such as LittleBigPlanet and Limbo.

For us, PixelJunk Monsters sits alongside those hallowed classics. In designing PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PS Vita, we wanted to take the fabulous PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe and make it an even better experience.

We worked closely with Q-Games to get it right, and then chose the name "Ultimate HD" at the end of development. We hope that's what we have created!

We've been big fans of Monsters and the other PixelJunk games for some time; the sharp, colorful graphics and addictive gameplay had us hooked. Monsters is one of those games that is super casual, but incredibly difficult at the same time: a quality which made us - and many others - keep coming back for more.

The tower defense premise is very familiar, but Monsters' effortless execution sets it apart from other games in the genre. We realized that if Monsters were remade today, it would still stand out amongst other games in the genre.

So we set out to make the definitive version of PixelJunk Monsters...
 

Video: The Monsters of God of War: Ascension for PS3 - Megaera

50°
107w ago - Sony Community Strategist at Aaron Kaufman Santa Monica Studio has posted up a video today showcasing the monsters of God of War: Ascension for PS3 which spotlights Megaera below.

To quote: From a titan-sized showdown with Ares to battling Zeus at Gaia's heart, the antagonists of God of War have provided some of the most memorable encounters in gaming history. God of War: Ascension promises to continue with this tradition by introducing a challenge that will push Kratos to his physical, mental, and spiritual limits to say the least.

In Ascension, Kratos is sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, and will battle insanity at the hands of the Furies - perhaps the most terrifying spectres of the ancient world.

The six-legged Fury Megaera is the first of three to be revealed in our latest Monsters of Ascension entry, with Lead Concept Artist [Register or Login to view links] - the mastermind behind their creation.

Since Ascension is set before the events of the first God of War, what specific role does Megaera (of the Furies) play in Kratos' journey from mortal to God?

Izzy: Megaera is the first of three deadly sisters that Kratos must push past to free himself from an oath he has come to greatly regret....
 

The Monsters of God of War: Ascension PS3 - The Satyr Captain

112w ago - Following up on their previous update, Sony Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman at Santa Monica Studio has detailed another of the Monsters in God of War: Ascension for PS3 today, namely the Satyr Captain!

To quote: As we continue the journey to March 12, 2013, we want to further explore all aspects of the God of War universe, giving you deeper insight into the creation, lore, design, and gameplay of God of War: Ascension. Welcome to our third Monsters of Ascension feature.

The Satyr Captain in God of War: Ascension continues the evolution of the "Satyr," an enemy that has featured in every God of War game from the beginning.

This time, however, these grunts are getting a "pack master" in the form of the vicious Satyr Captain. In today's post, our famed concept artist [Register or Login to view links] continues his dissection of the Monsters of Ascension. Let's roll!

The God of War Satyrs are traditionally pretty formidable alone and even more so in groups. Now with the addition of the Goat Captain, they add rank and structure to their arsenal. Those are some pretty stacked odds that Kratos is up against. What sparked the idea to give them a...
 

Sony Details The Monsters & Magic of Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita

100°
114w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared details today from Gamescom 2012 on the monsters and magic of Soul Sacrifice for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: It's been a while since our last Soul Sacrifice blog post, so with Gamescom taking place this week I thought I'd take a moment to share some new game details.

In our debut post, we talked about the reality-blended experience and the concept of sacrificing in Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita. Now, I'm going to provide a deeper insight into the game.

In the world of Soul Sacrifice, monsters are what have become of humans who succumbed to darkness, using magic according to their desire. The mission of a sorcerer is to exterminate these monsters.

Now, you may be wondering what sort of monsters you will come across and how they succumbed to this fate. Let's take a look at the back story of one of these monsters - "Griffon."

Griffon

He was a noble. His lands were vast, and he lived in opulence, supported by heavy taxes exacted from those who lived in his dominion. One day, he was presented with an offering from the people - a golden statue of a figure combining beast, bird, and man.

His heart was swept away by the figure, and he felt an unnatural adoration for it. The power of the...
 

Video: The Monsters of God of War: Ascension - The Elephantaur

200°
116w ago - Today Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman at Santa Monica Studio has shared a video spotlighting the monsters of God of War: Ascension for the PlayStation 3 console dubbed The Elephantaur.

To quote: God of War: Ascension's Elephantaur is a Minotaur hybrid unlike any ferocious enemy you've seen yet in the God of War universe.

You could call him an evolution of the Minotaur... or perhaps the beginning? We'll let our famed concept artist Izzy answer that for you. Let's roll!

Now that you've given us a glimpse into the creative process that spawned the monstrous Polyphemus, let's plunge our blades into God of War's newest baddie: The Elephantaur!

Tell us a bit about its history and how you managed to turn one of nature's most noble creatures into such a hulking juggernaut.

Izzy: For God of War III I had worked on the Berserker class Argus monster that was later cut. When I originally started doing sketches for that guy, I had done a painting of a pale elephant coated in blood like a gladiator. That image got scrapped, but ever since, I've wanted to do another scary elephant monster.

When the Elephantaur came up, it was originally an assignment to reskin the Minotaur from God of War III for God of War: Ascension. We had planned to do a different...
