35w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith announced alongside a launch trailer video that Guacamelee rolls onto PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: I'm extra excited to announce that Guacamelee! comes out today on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN.
We're releasing the game as part of the Spring Fever promotion: $14.99 will get you both the PS3 and PS Vita versions, with a 20% discount for PlayStation Plus members.
Still there? Then allow me to add that Guacamelee! is a metroid-vania style brawler that supports Cross-Buy, Cross-Save, Cross-Control, has a precious Platinum trophy, and comes complete with rapid punching action.
Punch, punch, punch! Speaking of which, you may now be saying, "Hey guy, what's up with all of the punch talk?" Take a look...
Well, when we started making Guacamelee! we knew we wanted to include punching, but not just ordinary punching. We built a proof-of-concept demo, a video of which I have included below for your approval.
As you can see, we had blocking, we had holds, and we had charge-up moves. You'll be interested to know that we now have none of those things! Why, you ask?
35w ago - Sony Lead Producer Garth DeAngelis revealed that XCOM: Enemy Unknown officially invades PS3 on PSN today!
Below are the details, to quote: 2K and the development team at Firaxis Games are excited to announce the release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown for PlayStation 3 on PlayStation Network in North America and Brazil on Tuesday, April 9th!
We hope the PlayStation community is ready to save Earth in a way they may have never experienced before.
As a lifelong PlayStation gamer, and a huge fan of PlayStation-bred squad-based tactical games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea, and Vandal Hearts, I'm proud to have something fresh and so easily accessible within Sony's amazing game catalog.
If you missed XCOM: Enemy Unknown's launch in October, this is a heck of an opportunity to see what the fuss has been about.
We're humbled by the 18 Overall Game of the Year wins we've been awarded, but even cooler to us as game creators are the individual stories we hear from gamers regarding their play experience.
In XCOM: Enemy Unknown, you'll defend the world against a global alien onslaught, making epic decisions via your secret underground base, and then deploy your squads...
36w ago - Trion Worlds Director of Community Elizabeth Tobey has revealed that Defiance is out today on PlayStation 3 alongside a video launch trailer!
Below are the details, as follows: Defiance, the massive open-world shooter from Trion Worlds, is out today on PS3. Set in 2046, Defiance puts you in the shoes of an Ark Hunter.
Hired by Von Bach Industries to scour the terraformed San Francisco Bay area for valuable alien technology that has crashed onto earth, your adventures are the result of a massive war that waged for years on the ground and in the skies.
During your journey, you'll team up with fellow Ark Hunters in order to find more tech, weapons, and loot. There will be times when you'll find yourself facing off against other players: in Defiance, friends are a rare and ephemeral commodity.
Get a taste of what awaits in our full-length launch trailer "Welcome to the New Age" featuring "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons.
Read more about Defiance soon and head to http://community.defiance.com to get the latest info on the game. Welcome to the new age, Ark Hunter. Good luck.
