Yakuza: Dead Souls PS3 Out Tomorrow - Fight for Zombie Rights

50°
110w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has announced today that Yakuza: Dead Souls is out for PS3 tomorrow with details below.

To quote: Whenever you see a zombie in a TV show, video game, or movie (or real life!), you need to kill it.

All of the zombies must die! The unforgiving slaughter of zombies goes back to the 1930s and is stronger than ever 80 years later.

What will it take to end the violence?

A group of activists in Yakuza: Dead Souls is trying to do just that. You can learn more, and even donate to their cause, in the game. Regardless of how you feel about zombie rights, it's worth a stop to admire their creative protest signs, with slogans like "Zombies are people too!" and "What if your child were a zombie?!"

This is just one of the weirdly funny ways that zombies and real life are linked in Yakuza: Dead Souls. The game is full of clever moments, so get out there and explore Kamurocho to find all that is waiting to be discovered! And if you're not fighting for zombie rights, you can get all the crazy zombie-killing action you're craving, with a distinct Yakuza twist.

You can pre-order the game to get a...
 

Video: Galaxy Fight Plays the Blues in the PSN Import Store

119w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has posted up a video today announcing that Galaxy Fight is now playing the blues in the PSN Import Store.

To quote: When my son talks about his favorite rock bands and the music of today, I always advise him to listen to the blues.

To fully understand music, you have to look at its roots. The blues brought us many of today's contemporary sounds. Art of any form is a collection of creative inspiration. Past masters influence resonate with today's prodigies and new art is conceived. The same is true of games.

One reason retro gaming is enjoying its recent renaissance is because gamers want to go back to their roots. Today's games, with their mesmerizing graphics, sometimes lack a simple hook. Graphics can become a form of marketing, which can distort the mechanics and gameplay. Retro games didn't have that luxury.





MonkeyPaw is all about the chance to relive some of those great games that made you a gaming junkie. So today we present a title that reminds us of our fighting game foundations. Galaxy Fight is a classic SunSoft title that strangely never found its way West.

You'll see the first time an "endless" platform was used in...
 

Fight Night Champion Customizable Now on PlayStation Network

100°
128w ago - Today Producer Jazz Brousseau has announced that Fight Night Champion Customizable hits PlayStation Network today for under $5 with details below.

To quote: Hey fight fans, I'm here to give you the run-down on Fight Night Champion Customizable, available later today exclusively on PSN starting at $4.99.

With Fight Night Champion, we delivered a dramatically new gameplay experience. In creating Champion Mode, it was the first time that EA SPORTS had incorporated a story-based game mode into a sports title.

Inspired by classic boxing movies, Champion Mode allows players to step into the shoes of Andre Bishop, an up-and-coming middleweight contender who learns that the road to becoming a champion in professional boxing is one that is filled with unimaginable highs and brutal lows. Champion Mode tells a story of redemption and perseverance in one of the toughest sports ever imagined.

Now with Fight Night Champion available as a customizable digital download exclusively on PSN, we're once again delivering a new experience to gamers; we're giving them the opportunity to customize their experience to meet their gaming needs. We anticipate a few questions, so here's more detail on this unique approach to downloadable games:

How does the customizable download work?

Download: Sketch Fight v0.2 PS3 Homebrew Fighting Game

To quote: I bought a second controller and with it I was able to figure out how to get the controls working properly. So that is what I fixed in this update to Sketch Fight (which for the uninformed is a two player fighting game). Nothing else has changed.

In the future I’ll now always be able to test multiplayer PS3 games before releasing them

PS3 controls:

  • Left directional button = Move left
  • Right directional button = Move right
  • Down directional button = Move crouch
  • X button = Jump

Sketch Fight v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Fighting Game is Released

300°
138w ago - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer ThatOtherDev has made available the initial release of a PS3 homebrew fighting game in development called Sketch Fight v0.1.

Download: Sketch Fight v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Fighting Game

To quote: This is a first version of something I have put together for the soon closing Scenery Beta 2011 international homebrew showcase.

Sketch Fight is a simple two player fighting game with crudely done hand drawn graphics that are intended to look like something a person would doodle when trying to cope with the mind numbing repetition and tedium that is school.

I only have one PS3 controller at the moment so I haven't been able to test it properly... Let me know if it isn't controlling correctly.

Edit: Apparently when a second controller is connected both controllers effect both players. So it is pretty much unplayable. I'll probably buy a second controller sometime soon so that I can test multiplayer games myself.

PS3 controls:

  • Left directional button = Move left
  • Right directional button = Move right
  • Down directional button =...
