Ragnarok Odyssey on PS Vita is a Giant-Smashing Good Time

50°
88w ago - XSeed Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has shared an update on Ragnarok Odyssey for the PlayStation Vita handheld console today.

To quote: I've been playing Ragnarok Odyssey for PS Vita. In English.

Are you ready to stand taller than giants? You should be, because that's what this game is all about.

One day, a passage along the Millennium Peaks gives humans access to the long-sealed off Sundered Land, and because they're really lucky, it's filled to the brim with mighty beasts that seem to want nothing more than to destroy mankind's territory - Trogdor-style.

Only they're not dragons with handsomely chiseled arms, they're ugly Giants. Giants who like to smash things.

That's where you come in. You're a mercenary on the front lines, and once you choose your sex, job class, and how cute you are (by way of hair style/color, skin color and voice type), you're ready to drop in on Fort Farthest like a bat out of hell.

And don't worry, you're only restricted to your default job class for a short time - you'll soon be able to go from hacking and slashing as a Sword Warrior to creating miniature explosions as a Mage with a mere wardrobe change.

And even that won't be a limitation soon enough, because I'm sure some of you would prefer...
 

Video: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West PS3 Questions Answered

400°
185w ago - Namco Bandai Games America Brand Manager Laili Bosma has shared a video today showcasing Enslaved: Odyssey to the West PS3 alongside a Q&A session, as follows:

Recently we began a Q&A segment, and we're never ones to shy away from a great opportunity, so here are the answers to some of the questions we've received.

What gameplay elements in Enslaved will help players become as emotionally invested in Trip as we will be in Monkey?

Now that you've played the demo, you've probably seen how Trip and Monkey meet. Their relationship starts out as a harsh one; Trip hacks a slave headband and places it on Monkey's head. If he tries to leave her or leave her in danger, then he feels the consequences. Basically if she dies, he dies.

But despite the intensity of this initial meeting, you'll learn over the course of the story that Trip has her own motivations, fears, and complexities. She's not a weak woman by any stretch of the imagination.

And as she and Monkey take their journey to the West, they also begin to bond and learn more about one another. As much as this is about a physical journey, the characters are also taking an emotional one as well.





Do the playable characters have a leveling...
