110w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has posted up a video today spotlighting Corpse Party and the Psychology of Horror on Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We love to be scared. There's something so primal and universal about fear, and a good horror story can really bring out the best of it, making our hearts race and our minds veer toward the darkest recesses of the human psyche. And we just keep going back for more!
Yet by the same token, horror has become so passe that we barely even react when we encounter imagery of skeletons, zombies, witches, bats, vampires and ghouls. True primal fear is hard to come by in the modern world, and this applies to video games as well.
When you hear the term "horror game," what's the first thing that pops into your mind? Probably "zombies" since that seems to characterize much of the horror genre nowadays.
Most modern horror games assault you with wave after wave of zombies, and you can typically one-shot them back to their graves. They may look scary, but when's the last time you were actually frightened in a zombie shooter game?
Maybe you had an exciting time playing one, and jumped at a handful of startling moments, but the mere fact that you're able to defend yourself - that you have a means of fighting...
112w ago - Sony Associate Product Marketing Manager Sharon Kapitula has announced that Everybody Dance launches today, and shared a Party Play video with the 49ers Gold Rush cheerleaders below!
To quote: Everybody Dance, the ultimate party game for PlayStation 3, launches today! Now, with the power of PlayStation Move, you'll be able to dance alongside authentic music videos for 40 of your favorite hit tracks.
To celebrate the game's release, we're happy to unveil the latest addition to our Dancer Diaries video series - Party Play with the San Francisco 49ers Gold Rush cheerleaders!
A few weekends ago, we invited the squad over to PlayStation HQ for an Everybody Dance party. Check out the video for a glimpse of the 49ers Gold Rush showing off their best dance moves while playing Everybody Dance!
Spirits were high as the ladies played through several rounds of Everybody Dance's Party Play mode, which allows up to 20 people to compete in head to head dance-offs.
To get the party started, each dancer simply sets up their profile by taking a photo with the PlayStation Eye camera and then the game automatically matches players up and tracks their wins.
114w ago - Today XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has shared a video introducing Corpse Party for PlayStation Portable fans below.
To quote: So you've taken an interest in Corpse Party, have you? Perhaps you were intrigued by the launch trailer, or laughed at the name when you saw it mentioned on your favorite gaming news site (or hilarious webcomic?).
Perhaps you're a fan of survival horror games, or visual novels, or point-and-click adventures... or perhaps you simply enjoy Japanese horror movies like The Ring and The Grudge, and are always looking for your next fix.
Regardless of why you've taken an interest or how you got to this blog, there's one thing that most likely holds true: You have very little idea what Corpse Party actually is.
Our launch trailer focused on the most important aspects of the game - those being its unsettling atmosphere and its dark-as-night storyline - but did very little to indicate exactly how it's played. So, let's dig a little deeper and find out exactly what horrors await, shall we?
In the broadest terms, Corpse Party is a horror adventure game. You play as an ensemble cast of seven senior high school students, one junior high school student and one senior high school English...
117w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has posted up a new Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One PS3 video today dubbed A Party of One with details below, as follows:
The team at Insomniac Games in North Carolina has been working hard to wrap up their first game, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
It's a terrific four-player co-op adventure, and we're really excited to have it in your hands next month. A frequent question we've been getting is "how is it when you play alone?"
While bringing co-op to Ratchet & Clank has been by far our number one request for the franchise, we know many of you love to sit down and play Ratchet & Clank and enjoy the fantastic worlds, inventive weapons and hilarious storylines on your own time.
I'm here today to talk a little bit more about the single-player experience. Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is built from the ground-up to be a co-op game, and many of the mechanics are very co-op based. So quickly realized we needed to give you a computer-controller partner to keep the gameplay balanced.
In that regard, if you play All 4 One alone as Ratchet, Qwark or Nefarious, you'll be teamed up with an AI bot playing as Clank. As you traverse the levels,...
120w ago - Sony European Product Manager Erica Doddato has shared a video trailer today for the PlayStation Move party game Start the Party's sequel dubbed Save the World!
To quote: Following on from the 2010 Move-exclusive smash-hit Start The Party! comes a heroic sequel that will turn every party into a race to save the world.
Packed with over 20 fun filled mini-games, Start The Party! Save the World! puts you, your friends and family into the heart of the action and on the screen.
The evil Dr Terrible has gone berserk and is trying to destroy the world - use your PlayStation Move to stop him!
See how with the trailer below:
Get your face in the game and interact with some wacky objects that will appear straight into your living room: save stranded divers, defuse bombs before they explode, splat shoals of mutant piranhas, do battle with dinosaurs and zap alien invaders out of the sky.
As you can see, they are pretty dangerous missions - but no need to worry: you can always ask your friends and family to help out.
Every mini-game can be enjoyed in two types of multi-player mode: pass the controller to get your friends into the action or use both a motion controller...
