13w ago - Muteki Corporation Founder, President and CEO Bryan Sawler announced that Dragon Fantasy Book II is out on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms today.
To quote: After almost two years, four PAX showings (as well as GDC, E3, etc) it's almost bittersweet to be finally announcing this.
It was just over a year ago that we first announced this game was coming to PSN. But you can't understand why that is until you look at what really went into this game...
Dragon Fantasy Book II's origin is a long tale, going back almost 20 years to when myself and Adam Rippon, the game's writer and creative director were just teenagers. Knowing nothing about what it takes to make games, we looked at the JRPGs we loved at the time and wanted to make our own.
Over a dozen failures later we eventually gave up and went on with life, ending up in the game industry and working together at a number of companies. It wasn't until just a few years ago that the passing of Adam's father brought back the desire to make Dragon Fantasy (now titled Dragon Fantasy Book I).
As far as generic 8-bit style JRPGs go, we had a great response and added a ton of content until it became the game we eventually released on PSN earlier this year.

20w ago - CCP Games developer CCP Sentinel announced today that PS3 fans can suit up and roll out with new Dust 514 Battle Kits.
To quote: In DUST 514, a massively multiplayer free-to-play first-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation 3, you can build an empire, wage war on a galactic scale and change the notorious sci-fi universe of EVE Online forever. But you can't do it without the right gear.
As an immortal mercenary, you'll want to outfit your battle clones with the best dropsuits, weapons, enhancements and equipment to suit your fighting style.
The customization options are nearly endless and with a galactic battlefield that's constantly shifting, you'll need to experiment with the latest military tech to maximize your performance.
One of the best ways to test out new gear in DUST 514 is with a newly offered Featured Fit. These fully-fitted dropsuit and vehicle setups are custom-made by our designers to showcase the combat advantages of individual races, weapons, defensive strategies and more.
Featured Fits are ready to go and don't require any skill training to equip, so Mercs can use them without burning through hard-earned Skill Points. Just slot them onto your character of choice, and hop into battle.
20w ago - Lead Creative Farl Lee at XPEC Entertainment Inc made available a video today spotlighting Do Not Fall Out PSN, which arrives to fans on PlayStation Network tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: Have you ever thought: "What if the floor disappeared after you stepped on it?" Perhaps you have seen this idea in a game before. What if whole levels were built around that? That's the starting point for our new game, Do Not Fall.
Starting a title from scratch, creating a gameplay mechanic, story, art direction and a brand new IP was definitely not an easy task. Actually, it was challenging, but exciting at the same time.
Originally, we wanted to create a game that allows four players to play together. A disappearing floor is a common gameplay design in action platform games, but what would it be like with four people playing together at the same time? We could already imagine the fun and laughter when picturing friends trying to push each other off the floor or set each other up while looking out for themselves.
Besides this core idea, we thought about adding different objectives in the game, which later on became different multiplayer modes. In soccer mode, for example, players compete to kick...
