Fatal Frame III: The Tormented Reemerges Today on PSN

28w ago - Series Director Makoto Shibata announced that Fatal Frame III: The Tormented Reemerges today on PlayStation Network for PSN fans.

To quote: Before work began on Fatal Frame III, I heard that PS3 would be launching soon, so I conceived this project as a compilation of the past games, and our final game for PS2.

The first Fatal Frame used the Japanese horror technique of relying on the user's imagination to create a sense of fear, while the second placed the emphasis on storytelling. For the third, we went with "fear lurking within the everyday" as the theme.

In horror movies and such, the bedroom or bathroom are often where scary things happen, so we decided to try our hand and venture into these classic realms as well.

Yet, leaving it at "scary things in realistic places" would lack beauty, which is essential for any horror game. We needed more.

What I came up with was this: an old Japanese house within a dream, a house in the real world, and a player that travels between the two. In the Japanese house surrounded by thickly falling snow are the remnants of a mysterious ceremony, and the spirit of a girl covered with painful-looking tattoos can be found wandering around. Interacting with her causes the dream world to corrupt the real world.

Video: DuckTales: Remastered PSN Hits PlayStation Network Today

35w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered PSN hits PlayStation Network today with a trailer video below.

To quote: I've been working with the team at WayForward Technologies to bring you guys DuckTales: Remastered, launching today for PS3 as part of PlayStation Store PLAY.

At the start of development, the main goal of the project revolved around updating the game while keeping the gameplay true to the original NES game.

As the game progressed in development, we found that all of the new content really started to bring the original cartoon to life as well.

For those that may not know, the original DuckTales is firmly seated in the pantheon of the greatest NES games of all time. Widely praised for its tight controls, addicting platforming, and some of the best 8-bit music known to humanity, DuckTales stood apart as a fantastic licensed game.

When creating DuckTales: Remastered, the very first step was to make sure the game felt right, meaning it played just like the NES version. To do this, early versions were tuned so that you could play the original NES version of the game and our new version at the same time with one controller. So for your pure platform gamers, you're going to find that this game just feels right.
