Naughty Dog Shares the Latest Details on The Last of Us for PS3

50°
138w ago - Today Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared the latest details on The Last of Us for the PS3 entertainment system below.

To quote: February has been a month flush with new information about The Last of Us trickling out from a variety of Web sites, magazines and more that have visited the Naughty Dog studio over the past three months.

One of the more in-depth looks at The Last of Us came from the US publication Game Informer, who put together a cover story hub for all the OTHER information they managed to squeeze out of us from a very, very short visit.

The most important part of their visit, to me, was that we were able to show a well-polished, nearly fifteen minute game demo of [Register or Login to view links].

The gameplay demo starts with Joel and Ellie driving down a highway congested with abandoned vehicles, eventually encountering another survivor who looks hurt and is limping towards their pickup truck. Surprisingly, Joel hits the accelerator and just before he barrels into the survivor, he pulls out a gun and shoots at Joel - missing Joel and only breaking the windshield.

With this immediate threat behind them, Joel doesn't have time to react as another survivor in the group rolls a bus downhill towards...
 

PS Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) Release Incoming, Details Arrive

1300°
138w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PS Vita homebrew developer wololo has announced that the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) will arrive shortly after March 1, 2012 with details below.

To quote: "This has been a tough week for lots of you, coming to my blog everyday to see that no new information was available about the release of VHBL. Trust me, it's been a much tougher week for me, making sure things go according to my humble plan, coping with a few more issues than expected, and overall, taking all the insults about "being a faker" or "trying to boost my ego" without being able to say anything else than "please trust me".

Ok, let's reveal a few essential things here, starting with the bad news: The game used by Teck4′s exploit is not available on the US vita store. Blame Sony and their "275 out of 900 PSP games available for your vita" scheme for this, not us. Part of the waiting time was to see if Sony would add this game to the US store at some point. It is obviously compatible since it is available in other continents, so my guess is that this is a marketing or a legal decision.

Long story short, people in the US who want...

Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus Confirmed for Vita Launch, Details Arrive

50°
141w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has confirmed several launch details today for Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus on the PlayStation Vita handheld console, as follows:

If you're a fan of ninja games, PS Vita won't leave you wanting - or waiting. The system's upcoming launch will be supported by two ninja-centric titles: Shinobido 2 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus, and I spent some time with the latter this weekend. NGS+ is an updated version of an early PS3 title, which itself was an enhanced version of an original Xbox game that debuted back in 2004.

Despite some control choices which have clearly evolved over the past 8 years, the source material holds up pretty well in 2012.

Playing through the first few levels of the NGS+, memories from nearly a decade ago came flooding back to me: the placement of treasures, decapitating enemies with a single charged slash (hold down the triangle button to, um, execute), and the difficulty.

The Ninja Gaiden series resides firmly in the "tough, but fair" challenge department. When you die - and you will - it's usually not due to AI cheapness, but rather a mistimed block or a delayed dodge.

That doesn't mean the game can't get frustrating, but when you prevail, the frustration melts into delicious satisfaction. For those...
