109w ago - Today Djamil Kemal at Lexis Numerique has shared some PS3 video footage dubbed Surviving the Horror of Amy: Salvation is Within Reach.
To quote: PlayStation fans have been following the development of AMY for some time now and have been giving us tremendous support - we sincerely thank you for that.
Others are just discovering this original upcoming PSN survival-horror game for the first time. What none of you have seen is the actual gameplay that lies at the heart of the game: the very unique relationship between Amy and Lana, our lead character.
When you mention 'a very unique relationship' in a video game, it may bring to mind ICO, a game that many of us consider a milestone in video game history.
The recent re-release of the HD version by PlayStation brought back many memories for us. The first time you finished ICO, what remained was great emotional depth and a rare feeling of empathy for Yorda, the young woman you try to protect.
Before playing ICO, the simple idea of protecting a non-playable character seemed tedious and dull. And yet, in ICO, you never had the feeling of doing a long escort mission. You really wanted to protect her.
109w ago - IO Interactive Community Manager Nick Price is here with a new video previewing Hitman: Absolution on PS3 that showcases both the Stealth and Combat features below.
To quote: IO Interactive has been on quite a ride with the first demo of Hitman: Absolution - touring the world with the code, showing it off to hundreds of thousands of excited people.
The response was so overwhelming, we decided to release the full playthrough a few weeks ago. And now, after having captured two of the most busy gentlemen on the team, we are following up with a new video to ensure everyone gets the full experience.
Join Game Director Tore Blystad and Gameplay Director Christian Elverdam as they take us all behind-the-scenes of the award-winning Hitman: Absolution, with a full 17-minute commentary version of the "Run For Your Life" playthrough.
The commentary will let you learn first-hand what it takes to create a living and breathing world. The aim is for the fans to gain new insight into the creation and ambition for the game and get a taste of what players can expect when they enter the mindset of the original assassin: Agent 47. We hope you will enjoy it!
