Video: Skullgirls Dev Diary: Skullgirls' Perfected Pugilism on PSN

100°
129w ago - Today Reverge Labs Designer, Producer and Community Manager Peter Bartholow has shared some new Skullgirls development diary video footage and details on the PSN title below.

To quote: A few weeks ago I gave you a run-down on our new 2D fighter, Skullgirls. Last time I discussed the game's story and its characters, and exclusively revealed Ms. Fortune.

This week we'll be talking about the really important part: the gameplay.

As I noted last time, Skullgirls' lead designer and programmer is Mike "Mike Z" Zaimont, a noted tournament fighter and (regretful) creator of the "real soviet damage" Internet meme.

While our art team strives to make the game look amazing, gameplay always comes first. Mike's impetus to create Skullgirls was to make a game that was as fun to play as Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but addressed the system and balance problems that kept that game from being competitively viable.





The bane of many a fighter is the infinite combo: these are easily-repeated, inescapable attack patterns, and they can completely ruin games. Skullgirls gets around this by monitoring the players' attacks, and if the game detects a looping combo the...
 

Video: InFamous: Festival of Blood Now on PSN, PS Move Support

130w ago - Today Brian Fleming at Sucker Punch Productions has shared the launch trailer for InFamous: Festival of Blood which is now on PSN and includes PlayStation Move support!

To quote: It's been a long time since my last PlayStation.Blog post, and today's entry is a little....different. I'll start with the marketing facts (inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood available now!! $9.99!!

Only $7.99 if you are a PlayStation Plus member!!!) but really, I thought I'd give you a little insight into why and how we ended up making a vampire based spin-off of inFAMOUS.

For us, we'd been working for two projects and five-plus years on the main storyline of inFAMOUS. We wanted the DLC to be a chance to take all that art and technology and do something fun and different for players.

We knew we couldn't just release some more missions or a skin pack, so we took a bunch of pitches from all the departments here at the studio for what we might do. We wanted something that fit the world of inFAMOUS, would be fun to work on, and ideally would be unexpected, too.





One of the strong pitches we got was originally called "Vampire City" (a play on "Empire City" from inFAMOUS). The pitch was that Zeke was trying to impress a...
 

Video: Soulcalibur V PS3 Interview: Sharpening the Blade

250°
130w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Soulcalibur V PS3 interview and video today dubbed Sharpening the Blade below.

To quote: It's a tale of souls and swords, eternally retold. And on January 31st, 2012, that tale comes full circle on the PS3 with Soulcalibur V. Set 17 years after the events of Soulcalibur IV, Soulcalibur V is a return to the fast, furious feel that marked earlier entries in the series.

I was able to put a pre-release version of Soulcalibur V through its paces to get a feel for the new gameplay tweaks and refinements. After a few intense bouts, I noticed that Soulcalibur V moves at a slightly faster clip than SCIV, and that the Soul Gauge gem has evolved into a full-blown Edge meter that powers Brave Edge attack enhancers and the ultra-damaging Critical Edge finisher. I also spotted new defensive maneuvers, such as the Quick Step evasion and a Just Guard parry.

The fighter roster is getting a shakeup as well, with a core group of classic characters being supplemented by a large cast of mysterious new combatants (read more here), headlined by guest character Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed.

After going hands-on with the game, I discussed Soulcalibur V's gameplay evolution with "Filthy" Rich Bantegui, community manager for Namco...
