98w ago - Smart As Assistant Producer Nicolo Accordino has posted up two new videos today showcasing Smart As, which hits PS Vita on October 30th, 2012.

To quote: We're launching PS Vita's all-new social brain training game, Smart As, on October 30th in North America.

We've been hard at work loading Smart As with fun and engaging puzzle games to put your mental might to the test with challenges in four key areas: Logic, Arithmetic, Language and Observation.

As we recently announced, Smart As also features the voice talent of Monty Python's John Cleese; so as you train, you'll receive his encouragement and cheeky commentary. Better still, as you play and improve your scores, you'll get to share your stats with Smart As fans from around the world via the online leaderboards, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

Here's a sneak peek at the some of our favorite Logic and Arithmetic challenges.





As you can see in this video, the Logic games are designed to test your ability to solve puzzles as quickly as possible. Inspired by the popular scientific opinion that the brain's frontal lobe is used for executive functions like problem solving, organizing and planning, our goal was to design games that tested...

Video: The Last of Us PS3 PAX Theater Gameplay Demo in HD

103w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has made available an HD video of The Last of Us PS3 PAX Theater Gameplay demo below today.

To quote: Pax Prime was a blast! We were amped to publicly show off our behind-closed-doors gameplay demo of The Last of Us that only a very select few media members saw at E3.

If you weren't able to make it out to Seattle we don't want to leave you out (or leave you watching someone's illicit shaky-cam YouTube video) so here it is:

This demo highlights narrative exploration through interactive prompts, environmental puzzles, the balance of power AI, and some of the dynamic stealth elements you'll be able to use to plan Joel and Ellie's survival.

How many resources are at your disposal? Do you go offensive or defensive? You'll have to keep calm, think, and rely on your partner, Ellie, as you survive and make your way westward.





We can't thank you enough for the reception we've received so far for The Last of Us. At PAX Prime, we had some awesome conversations, saw some amazing things, and met some truly dedicated fans.

You guys and gals make all our hard work that much more rewarding - thank you.

104w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Community Manager Daniel Maniago has announced today that Nariko and Sir Daniel are joining the fight in PlayStation All-Stars as showcased in the videos below!

To quote: The doors to the PAX convention center are officially open here in Seattle. The show is now in full swing, and so are our character reveals!

We already unveiled Evil Cole and Raiden this week, and now we have two more characters that we're announcing at the show today.

Heavenly Sword's Nariko has joined the cast of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale! Heavenly Sword's cinematic experience and engaging gameplay dazzled gamers in 2007, an experience we wish to re-create for those playing as Nariko in PlayStation All-Stars. Nariko has proven to be a strong female lead, and was a prime candidate for inclusion in the roster.

During Nariko's combo attacks, players can trigger different actions during key poses within her offense. This opens up defensive options such as dodging, jumping, or parrying mid-combo, or offensive options such as continued combo attacks or juggle starters.





She also has several projectile attacks to harass opponents with from a distance. During her level 3 super, Nariko uses...

105w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared some video interview footage today spotlighting Tearaway by Media Molecule below.

To quote: One of the big highlights of [Register or Login to view links] last week was [Register or Login to view links]'s return to the spotlight with Vita adventure Tearaway - the UK studio's first title since LittleBigPlanet 2.

Predictably, it's a riot of colour, creativity and wild invention, telling the story of iota - a plucky young hero on a mission to deliver a unique message to you, the player.

You'll help him on his way by interacting with his environment via the Vita's touch screen and rear touch panel. It looks like an absolute delight to play, leveraging all the Vita's features to offer up a unique, exciting gameplay experience.

The morning after they revealed the game on stage during the Sony press conference, Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans and "design lead/chief doodler" Rex Crowle kindly sat down with me for a quick chat about the ideas driving the game, as well as a few words on the [Register or Login to view links] series.

Take a look at the video below, and then, for good measure, treat yourself to one...
