Borderlands 2: PAX East Returns to Pandora on PlayStation 3

100°
106w ago - Producer Matt Charles has shared details today on Borderlands 2 from PAX East for PlayStation 3 fans today!

To quote: This weekend at the Borderlands 2 booth, we granted PAX East visitors chance to play with two brand-new characters for Borderlands 2 - Salvador the Gunzerker and Maya the Siren - in a new environment called the Caustic Caverns.

The Gunzerker and Siren classes have made great strides compared to their counterparts from the original game. Players who choose to play as Salvador will be able to use his Gunzerking ability to run into a crowd with two guns blazing.

If you played the first game, you may recognize this as an evolution of Brick's Berserking skill. Meanwhile, Maya's new Siren skill Phaselock isolates an enemy inside a phase bubble for a short time.

Once you've Phaselocked a target, your primary choice is whether to focus your fire on the helpless foe before it breaks free or mop up any other threats nearby. Decisions, decisions!

Borderlands has a strong history of co-op gameplay and that's still a core promise of this game. At PAX, we watched as Siren players Phaselocked an enemy, leaving an opening for the Gunzerker buddy to run up, dual-wielding, and take out the target just in the nick of time.

I'm also happy...
 

Atlus Announces Persona 3 FES Hits PlayStation Network Tomorrow

106w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today that Persona 3 FES is hitting PlayStation Network tomorrow with details below.

To quote:... There's a new PlayStation 2 Classic coming to PlayStation Network. I want to talk to you about it. Instead of just getting to the darn point, though...LET'S DRAG THIS OUT.

Join me, won't you, as we take a trip back in time? Step into this police box with me, please. Get the door behind you? Thanks.

Ok, the year is 2008. You just saw Al Pacino's 88 Minutes in theaters. It was terrible.

You're on your way home, your head hung low in abject disappointment, when you pass by your local INSERT NAME OF YOUR FAVORITE VIDEO GAME RETAILER HERE. What's that? New releases? You wander in to take a closer look, thinking that a new game might help cleanse your mental palate...

Whoa. Wait, didn't Persona 3 come out in 2007? Sure, it was one of the best RPGs you ever played, introducing one of the most memorable casts of characters ever and a ridiculously sweet half-dungeon RPG/half-social sim gameplay mechanic that let you balance the everyday demands of a high school student with the every night demands of a world-saving, Persona-wielding badass.

And then there was FES. It took the original game,...
 

Video: MMO Shooter Defiance Coming to PS3, Watch the Trailer

106w ago - Senior Producer Rob Hill has announced today that MMO shooter Defiance is coming to PS3 along with a new video trailer of the game in action below!

To quote: I'm Rob Hill, Sr. Producer on Defiance, and today I'm here to unveil the first ever clip of gameplay for this very exciting shooter MMO for PS3.

For those that don't know, Defiance is the first persistent online world that plays like a pixel perfect shooter. Unlike other shooter games where you can play co-op with 4 or 8 players at most, Defiance supports thousands of players playing together in a game that never ends.

And if that doesn't raise your eyebrows just a bit, the world of Defiance exists not only in the game, but in a TV series of the same name that will air on the Syfy channel. The game and show will change and evolve together, to create an entertainment experience unlike anything you've ever experienced.





We're glad to be able to take advantage of the power and features of the PS3 to help bring such a world to life.

To quote: The first expansion to Mass Effect 3's critically acclaimed multiplayer experience is almost here! The Resurgence Pack is coming to PSN on April 10th and with it, a host of new weapons, characters, maps and more.

Video: Ride, Die, and Fly in Starhawk Vehicle PlayStation 3 Trailer

106w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has shared a new Ride, Die, and Fly Starhawk vehicle trailer for PlayStation 3 fans today!

To quote: With just over a month until our May 8th release, the time to fully experience the virtual glory that is Starhawk is rapidly approaching.

We figured what better way to raise the excitement level than to give you a first-hand look at some of the different vehicle options you'll have at your disposal when this innovative third-person shooter hits stores next month.

We've said from the very beginning that Starhawk will have a broad range of intense air, ground, and vehicular combat so I think our new Ride, Die, and Fly trailer will certainly drive that point home.

First up is the Sidewinder JetBike - basically a quick-strike hoverbike that's very fast, perfect for crazy jumps and a lot of fun to drive.

Next, the Razorback, which is similar to a buggy vehicle, a sturdy 4x4 that carries up to three players and comes with a mounted gun on the back, perfect for picking off Outcast scum in a hurry.





The Ox Heavy Tank is one of my favorites. The name basically says it all, right? It's a burly vehicle that's great for bombarding bases. It's...
