Outlaws Of The Lost Dynasty Fights Onto PlayStation Network

100w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that Outlaws Of The Lost Dynasty is fighting it's way onto PlayStation Network with details below.

To quote: The Import section is now over a month old. Thanks for tuning in and showing interest!

So far, we've built up the shooter portfolio with some old-school twitchers. Now we're going to switch gears and present a great fighter from Land of the Rising Yen.

Our release this week will be Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty, a classic fighter from the era of when beat'em-ups ruled the consoles. It had progressive and pioneering elements that many future fighters mimicked.

And in some aspects, it exceeded what the legendary games of the fighter class established. This was Data East's second major attempt at a fighting game series, after Fighters History.

The game is set in the world of the ancient novel Water Margin, also known as the Legend of 108 Outlaws. In Japanese, the novel is translated as Suikoden - and this is a fighting game in that same universe. The story surrounds 12 of the 108 outlaws, testing their skills in Liangshan Marsh (where the novel takes place) as the Gods of War judge from the heavens.

We hope you'll like this fighter as it really brings back...
 

Video: The Making of Sorcery for PS3: The Music Behind the Myth

50°
101w ago - Sony's Sorcery Creative Director Brian Upton at Santa Monica Studio has shared some video footage today spotlighting the making of Sorcery for PS3: The Music Behind the Myth!

To quote: In this installment of our "Making of Sorcery" video series, we turn our attention to the music and sound design in this upcoming PlayStation Move title.

It was very important to have a Celtic inspired score for this game, but we wanted to do something a bit unusual with Celtic music, almost stretching the use of the instruments where possible in an effort to give the world of Sorcery its own unique sound.

As you'll notice, we have drums, flutes, and other instruments that give the music somewhat of a medieval feel, but at the same time we didn't want to be limited to that.

We wanted to bring in as many other sounds as possible to create a wider palette.





The result is a fusion of traditional Celtic music with more contemporary instrumentation and sound effects that boost the feeling of immersion you get by casting spells with the PS Move controller.

Here's a look, and don't forget Sorcery will hit stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd!
