41w ago - Senior Combat Designer Edward Ma at Superbot Entertainment has shared some new PlayStation All-Stars strategy videos today spotlighting Sly Cooper and Fat Princess below.
To quote: We're back this week to share our next two character combat videos for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
Today, we're examining strategies for Fat Princess and Sly Cooper with Game Director Omar Kendall.
Fat Princess, much like Sweet Tooth, is a character who has never found herself participating directly in battle, so one of the challenges for us was to design her play style from the ground up.
Her design has gone through radical changes 0 at one point, we had plans for her to grow larger depending on the amount of cake she ate mid-battle. We made sure to follow character guidelines provided by the producer, one of which is the fact that Fat Princess isn't actually aware of her weight.
We incorporated this into her play style by giving her these graceful ballerina pirouette attacks.
Her loyal villagers are, of course, a key weapon in her arsenal. There were a lot of questions raised from the start: should we let her villagers do the fighting while Fat Princess hangs out in the back?
45w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has announced today that the Ratchet & Clank Collection hits retailers and PSN on August 28th with a Sly Cooper demo!
Below are the details, to quote: As the celebration of Ratchet & Clank's 10th Anniversary has unfolded this year, we've received your anxious e-mails, tweets and Facebook messages asking us when you can get your hands on the Ratchet & Clank Collection in North America.
Today, we can tell you the remaster of three original PS2 Ratchet & Clank games will be available at retailers and via PlayStation Network on August 28th for $29.99!
The Collection features 1080p HD remasters of three PS2 Ratchet & Clank classics: Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal.
In addition, these three games have Trophy and 3D support (in 720p), and the fine folks over at Idol Minds have restored online play to Up Your Arsenal.
At last, those who missed out on competitive R&C gameplay during the PS2 Network Adapter era can finally check it out!
We realize that the Ratchet & Clank Collection is arriving in North America a bit later than it did in Europe and Japan. To reward you for your patience, we're giving you exclusive first access to the Sly Cooper:...
52w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a demo video today of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for the PS Vita handheld console below.
To quote: You've probably seen the news: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time doesn't just mark Sly Cooper's first full-length adventure on the PS3 - it'll be his first appearance on PlayStation Vita as well.
We invited Thieves in Time's Lead Designer Matt Kraemer and Sanzaru CEO Glen Egan into the studio for a deep conversation about bringing Sly, Murray, Carmelita, and the gang to PS3 and PS Vita in yesterday's edition of the PlayStation Blogcast (click here to listen). But maybe you just wanna see what Sly looks like on PS Vita. We understand.
So here's a video of Egan demoing some of the PS Vita-specific features you'll find when Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time drops this Fall:
We'll show you more of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time on our PlayStation E3 Livestream, starting Monday, June 4th at 5:30 pm Pacific/8:30 pm Eastern.
53w ago - Sanzaru Games President Glen Egan has revealed news of a PS Vita port and Carmelita gameplay today for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time with details below.
To quote: We recently joined Spike's Geoff Keighley on the latest episode of GTTV tonight to show off some cool new Carmelita gameplay in addition to a very special announcement: Sly Cooper is coming to PS Vita this fall!
First off, a look at new gameplay. As every Sly fan knows, Sly Cooper and Carmelita Fox have a long and torrid history - a history that's destined to continue in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
The game picks up where Sly 3 left off, and Sly is feigning amnesia so he can be with the love of his life, Carmelita. But when he rejoins the Cooper Gang on their time-traveling escapade to restore his family's legacy, you can be sure Carmelita will quickly become embroiled in their wild adventure.
Carmelita is radiant on the PS3, and the powerful graphics hardware allowed us to make her much more detailed and expressive than in the past titles on PS2. She is, of course, a fully playable character in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and so we also spent a lot of time evolving her gameplay.
64w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with some fresh video footage on Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time below.
To quote: Earlier this week, Rey and I visited Foster City-based Sanzaru Games, the developers of this fall's Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.
As the first original PS3 entry in the classic PS2 thieving series, and the first to be developed outside of Sucker Punch Studios, Thieves in Time represents a long-awaited return to form as well as a natural entry point for series newcomers.
Where Sly 2 and Sly 3 let you slip into the roles of Sly's partners in crime, Thieves in Time expands upon that concept by granting you control of Sly's infamous ancestors - the Cooper Clan members named in the hallowed pages of the Thievius Racoonus. In one chapter set in ancient Japan, I played as Riochi, Sly's sushi-slinging ninja ancestor.
Slinking past sleeping guards while searching for a special set of sushi knives, I used Riochi's Leaping Dragon ability to soar through laser fences and other high-tech traps designed to derail the Cooper Clan's devious destiny.
Other playable ancestors, including the medieval...
