73w ago - Sony Assistant Producer Dais Kawaguchi has announced today that Malicious will be awakening on PlayStation Network this July 24th for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Malicious, a new, original action game for PS3 from Japanese studio Alvion, is coming to PSN July 24th. That's in less than two weeks!
In Malicious, you'll take control of a "Spirit Vessel" awakened by prophets to defeat Holders, evil giants bent on destroying The Kingdom. You're armed with the Mantle of Cinders, a magical artifact that takes the form of weapons or a shield.
Rather than crawling through lengthy dungeons to find and defeat enemies, this game gives you the power to select whichever stage you want and jump directly into epic boss battles in whatever order you please.
Upon defeating each boss, you'll absorb its power to obtain new and unique abilities, so the choice is yours as to how you'll progress. In the end, however, you have one goal – prepare to face the ultimate evil, Malicious!
Malicious will be available for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network starting July 24. We'll be announcing more information in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

PlayStation All-Stars' EVO showing included a chance to sample newly announced characters Heihachi and Toro. Intitially, I had the most luck with Toro, using his deadly Mochi bombs, shuriken blasts, and comical bicycle kicks to torment foes from a safe distance.
But despite his adorable appearance and goofy combat style, Toro is no lightweight. He's...

Quantum Conundrum, developed by Airtight Games has you play as a young boy who dropped off to visit your uncle, when you notice something's wrong. First, he's not there to greet you.
Second, there's the explosion that happened right as you arrived. And third, the house seems to be even weirder than you remembered it. Now, your job is to find–and ultimately rescue–your uncle, by using his newest invention, the Interdimensional Shift Device (or IDS), to switch between dimensions and solve puzzles.
That sofa too heavy to move? There's a dimension for that! Switch to Fluffy Dimension and that sofa is now light as a feather. Need to get up to a high ledge? There's a dimension for that! Just switch to Anti-Gravity Dimension and things begin to float upward.

Today, Dyad was approved by the U.S. Fun and Diversion Administration to administer extreme doses of sensory stimulation.
It is absorbed directly into gamers' cerebral cortex via their optical, audial and touch receptors. The game was approved for use in all patients in North America who are in possession of a PS3 console and $14.99, and who are not adversely affected by excessive synaptic activity.
Research on Dyad began in 2008 in TRNT by Shawn McGrath. After TRNT officials observed test subjects wholly absorbed in euphoric trances and reviewed testimonies of transcendental interactive experiences, TRNT halted development of Dyad and expelled Shawn.
Determined to finish his research and enlighten gamers worldwide, Shawn partnered with enigmatic composer David Kanaga and continued...
