110w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has posted up a video showcasing Armored Core V customization and bosses for fans today.

To quote: Today we're coming back at you with more Armored Core V action, and a deeper look at the customization, weapons, bosses, and AC insanity that you'll be finding yourself in the middle of come March 20th.

Between the kinetic energy, the chemical energy, and the thermal energy, there's a massive arsenal worth of firepower that you'll be able to choose from when building your ultimate machine of destruction in the game.

As we've said before, the team at FromSoftware has been a leader in the genre with this franchise for nearly fifteen years, and with Armored Core V, and they mean business.





Each AC you build is highly unlikely to be identical to any others you come across online since customization is key. Brand new for this game are the recon units that players are going to be able to lay out all over the map to survey the land and take out your enemies.

What's also cool are the emblems and detailing customization aspects that let you trick out your AC like no other. You can get crazy with it, and...

We are pleased to announce that one of the most highly anticipated titles for the PlayStation 3 home console and the PlayStation Move motion control peripheral, the fantasy spell-casting game Sorcery, will be available in stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012.

The game is an action packed magical adventure where the PlayStation Move is your magic wand and only you, a sorcerer's young apprentice, can harness the true power of magic to save this mystical realm from the darkness of the Nightmare Queen.

Ready to get started? here's a quick summary of the story from Brian Upton, Creative Director on Sorcery.

Finn is in trouble. First, he accidentally blew up his master's alchemy lab. Then he's let Erline, his master's magical cat, talk him into trespassing in the realm of the dead. Now he's unleashed an ancient universe-destroying evil that won't stop until everything he cares about is utterly annihilated. It has not been a good day.

Even though he's only an apprentice, Finn must find a way to defeat the Nightmare Queen before she destroys the human world. To do this he must plunge deep into the...

Plastic Studios Introduce Datura, PSN Game for PlayStation Move

50°
110w ago - Plastic Studios Game Director Michal Staniszewski has officially introduced Datura today, an exclusive PSN game for PlayStation Move.

To quote: I'm Michal Staniszewski from Team Plastic (Plastic Studios) - yep, the same creators of Linger in Shadows.

Two years ago, we were asked to closely investigate possibilities of the PlayStation Move motion controller, which was still deep in its prototype phase.

Today, we are proud to present you with Datura, which uses the controller in a quite innovative way.

Finding yourself in a mysterious forest, you will navigate your way through the game by controlling your character's hand using Playstation Move technology.

From here, you are immersed into the game's unique experimental narrative and original way of interaction, which enables you to experience the world not only visually, but also empirically – an illusion that you can actually touch trees, faces, and other objects.

While taking inspiration from film-like narratives, Datura is a story you get a chance to physically participate in. As you travel through the game, you will encounter choices and face your consequences. It is through these puzzles that Datura explores an element of anxiety: was it a right choice or a wrong choice?
