37w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has announced that Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory lands on PS3 today alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Greetings, doods! How goes things? Ryan from NISA here, dropping by to let you know that Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory releases today in North America exclusively for PlayStation 3!
It's time again to join the exuberant and extremely awesome Neptune and her gaggle of CPU goddess buddies for a brand-new adventure in Gamindustri!
For those new to the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, it is a turn-based comedy RPG set in a world called Gamindustri, which is governed by different CPU Goddesses. Each goddess is actually a living and playable personification of the different video game consoles that we all have come to hold dear to our hearts.
As the player, you take the role of the main character, Neptune, and along with a whole slew of strong female counterparts, it's your job to make sure that order reigns supreme in Gamindustri!
So what's putting Gamindustri at risk this time around? Victory begins several years after Neptune's sister Nepgear...
38w ago - Candygun Games Managing Director Roger Joswig invites fans to pull off the ultimate heist in Dollar Dash on PlayStation Network today!
To quote: Everyone here on the development team at Candygun Games is excited to see Dollar Dash release on the PlayStation Network.
Creating a game with local multiplayer mayhem was at the top of our priorities as we designed it to be entertaining to play with friends on the couch or online. We are quite happy with the depth of multiplayer options and configurations - there are so many ways to play.
In Dollar Dash, players control a cartoon thief and attempt to grab as much cash as they can carry in their bag. To secure victory, players must bring their bag of cash to a getaway car all while avoiding pratfalls from other thieves who are out to collect the cash for themselves.
Luckily, there are crazy amounts of weapons and power-ups to utilize in effort to gather the most amounts of cash and stand on top of the piles of cash to be called the number-one thief.
Speaking of weapons, Dollar Dash has 20 crazy ones: from hunting thieves by throwing a cactus pot at them or squashing them with a giant boulder, the game is truly mad. Players can throw down oil slicks or portable holes to shake off pursuers.
38w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has announced alongside a fresh video that the Assassin's Creed III: The Betrayal PS3 DLC is out today.
To quote: The Betrayal, the second chapter in Assassin's Creed III's The Tyranny of King Washington single-player DLC series, comes out today on PSN.
Trapped in captivity by the vicious King Washington, Ratonhnhaketon must free himself and seek aid to overthrow Washington's ruthless machinations. Check out the video below for a run-down on what to expect.
Similar to the Power of the Wolf, Power of the Eagle has two different uses. First, it enables Ratonhnhaketon to soar from one location to another quickly and invisibly as a ghostly eagle. You activate this ability by looking in the direction you want to go... if the Power of the Eagle is available to use, you will see a reticle appear with two wings.
Once you press the button to activate the ability, Raton will transform into an eagle and streak towards the new location completely...
38w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King confirmed that Star Trek: The Next Generation warps to The Pinball Arcade today.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone, Bobby King from FarSight Studios here. We just got back from Dallas and the Texas Pinball Festival.
It's a tremendously fun weekend that includes playing hundreds of classic and rare pinball machines to the latest tables from Stern Pinball, like The Avengers; and Jersey Jack's first table, Wizard of Oz (which looks and plays great and features the first LCD backbox display in pinball history).
Next weekend, we'll have a booth in Milwaukee at the Midwest Gaming Classic, so if you live in the area, stop by and check out the show. There will be everything from classic video game consoles and coin-op to tons of pinball.
In Dallas, we were lucky enough to get to spend some time with legendary pinball designer, Steve Ritchie. The "King of Flow" even took some time to check out our latest PS3 feature, stereoscopic 3D before heading back to Stern where we know he's working on his next pinball design destined to be a classic.
This week we'll be releasing one of his designs, Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's...
38w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared a Q&A from Team Ninja for Dead or Alive 5 Plus which arrives on PlayStation Vita today.
To quote: Dead or Alive, Team Ninja's long-running fighting game franchise, is getting its first PS Vita installment today in the form of Dead or Alive 5 Plus. How does one pack a game of this magnitude into a portable form factor?
Do any concessions need to be made to keep everything steady at 60FPS? What new features can we expect, given PS Vita's unique capabilities? We synced up with Yohei Shimbori of Team Ninja, who graciously answered these questions and more.
PlayStation.Blog: What has been your experience in terms of developing Dead or Alive 5 Plus for PS Vita? Have you had to make many concessions, or were you able to port the entire PS3 game over with minimal changes?
Yohei Shimbori, Director, Team Ninja: Certain elements of Dead or Alive 5 Plus (DOA5+) were relatively smooth in porting it to the PS Vita from the PS3. However, as you may notice from games already on the market today, a complete port in terms of graphics and physics remains a challenge which was also the case for DOA5+.
Fluid fighting motion and stellar graphics are all staples of the Dead or Alive franchise, so delivering anything...
