113w ago - Square Enix Marketing Manager Jem Alexander has unveiled their first PlayStation Vita game today, entitled Army Corps Of Hell as seen in the demo video below!
To quote: Army Corps of Hell is our first game for the PlayStation Vita. In the game you will control the King of Hell, who has been banished and is seeking to reclaim his throne with the help of an army of goblin soldiers.
Army Corps of Hell is being developed by Entersphere and will feature plenty of dark humour as you venture further into the depths of Hell.
With Army Corps of Hell we're taking full advantage of the Vita's unique features; you can use the rear touch pad to play a rhythm based mini-game and heal your troops.
The game also includes a crafting system and a leveling system to improve and equip your goblin soldiers to expand their skills and abilities. Want some rare items? Team up with some friends via ad-hoc multiplayer and take on tougher monsters.
You can expect to see Army Corps of Hell available for the PlayStation Vita in 2012.
We'll have more information in the coming months before launch, so keep an eye on the Square Enix Blog for any...
113w ago - Today Klei Co-Founder Jamie Cheng has announced that Shank 2 will be coming to PSN complete with sharper graphics and new co-op functionality.
To quote: I'm here to talk a bit about our newest PSN title – Shank 2! Honestly, it's been a fantastic journey. We bet everything on the first game, and the fans both supported us and gave us meaningful feedback on the game.
The encouragement has not only allowed us to survive and thrive, but gave us a huge reason to take a look at the game and make big improvements. I'm here to talk a bit about what we've been working on.
Let's start with the art. As you may know, our entire art team consists of professional animators and painters from the 2D animation industry, and again Jeff Agala directed the visuals. The goal here was to blow away our previous fidelity and set a new bar for ourselves.
To do that, we doubled the resolution of all the source character art to push the graphic novel style, adding a huge amount of extra detail to the environment and even doubling the amount of animation in the game.
We've also worked hard on making environments are far more interactive – collapsing ceilings, crumbling floors, fiery environments, barrels and other large objects that...
113w ago - Today HandCircus Founder Simon Oliver has introduced the heroes in the upcoming PSN exclusive game Okabu as part of the video trailer below.
To quote: Its been a couple of months since we were last here talking about OKABU, our upcoming PSN-exclusive action-adventure, and we're thrilled to be part of this month's "Only On PSN" program, sitting alongside such awesome titles as Pixeljunk Sidescroller, Eufloria and Rochard.
So the big news is that we finally have a release date! OKABU will be hitting PSN on October 18th, and there'll be a demo available on launch day that'll let you take our cloud-flying heroes for a test flight. With launch only a couple of weeks away, we wanted to share a few more details about the game, and what you'll be doing as you guide Kumulo and Nimbe through the four worlds that make up the story campaign.
Since we started development one of our biggest goals has been to pack a ton of gameplay variety in the game, from physics-play and drivable vehicles to the ability to control the creatures that fill the world. These powers come from the cloud-flying heroes in the game, which you can pick up and drop off to swap abilities on the fly.
With our previous trailers we've been keen to show off everything that you can do in the game, but I realize that...
114w ago - Today Spanish PS3 developer DemonHades has posted up a video demonstrating PS1 Game Backups loading from CD and from PS3 USB / HDD via a Plugin on PS3 Custom Firmware using the upcoming JFW DH CFW alongside an OpenPStore update below.
To quote, roughly translated: Who says 3.55 is needed to load ps1 backups?
In this video we just want to show that in JFW DH can also use the method with Multimedia from backup ps1 cd (not recommended) and a plugin we load it via usb or hdd.
The video looks bad, but nothing for the quality of recording of the phone and the cabin where they recorded, but ultimately what you want to show is that it is necessary to be in a 3.55 for using such method, as it used in the 3.41.
1saludo and those who criticize that the video is blurry and FUD, if you want to look better give you the account number and we buy a better camera (from 100 thousand mega pixels) and you get caught, but digital video editing and remaster, for all other thanks again.
We advance the OpenPStore, and it is becoming less
How about demons, and the wait is being boring ... but I will not tell me that I am the one to respond and come forward
114w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has confirmed today alongside a video trailer that Yakuza: Dead Souls on PS3 is heading to the US.
To quote: Greetings Sony fans and Yakuza enthusiasts! Today is an exciting day, both for PS3 gamers and for us here at SEGA - the PS3 exclusive, Yakuza: Dead Souls is coming to the west!
It seems like only yesterday we were all sitting on the edge of our Sony-branded seats, hoping desperately that Yakuza 3 would see the light of day overseas. In the years since, we've seen not only the US release of Yakuza 3, but Yakuza 4, too - and, thanks to the fantastic support of fans and PS3 gamers like you, we're proud to now announce the latest chapter in the Yakuza franchise. What was once Of The End is now Dead Souls!
So, what is Yakuza: Dead Souls all about? I traveled to the top of the mountains and spent two weeks meditating to bring you the answers. In the end, that failed, so I just played the entire game instead.
It was awesome, and in doing so, I found that this game is a mix of:
• Zombies in Tokyo
• Yakuza with guns
• Beautiful Hostesses
And while I'm not able to reveal how much content from the Japanese version is coming over,...
