Video: GaiaSeed: Smooth and Silky Shooter Hits PSN Imports

100°
150w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has shared a video today announcing that their smooth and silky shooter GaiaSeed hits PSN Imports today.

To quote: Japanese retro lovers have a special attachment to the shooting genre. Remember the days when shooters ruled the skies?

So many great games came from that era but not all were shared with the West. Here's one you might enjoy.

GaiaSeed is for the pure shooter enthusiast. When you get your hands on this one, you'll be taken back to that era. Supremely smooth with a silky techo backbeat, GaiaSeed is one of those lost gems that should have become a classic. The game is guaranteed to satisfy, again and again.

This horizontal scrolling shooter from Techno Soleil has solid control, precise bullet collision, and a simple power-up system. With six stages, it's not the longest game on the block, but the massively scaling 2D backgrounds and variable difficulty make up for that.





But the real beauty of GaiaSeed lies in its subtlety. The technique and effects used will give shooter aficionados a work of art to go back to for multiple exposure. The soundtrack stands out for its techno/ambiance mood and adds to the subliminal nature of...
 

Video: The King of Fighters XIII Interview, Hits PS3 November 22

200°
150w ago - Sony Brazil PlayStation Manager Fabio Santana has posted up an interview today on The King of Fighters XIII, which will be hitting the PS3 on November 22, 2011.

To quote: We're truly living a fighting games renaissance. Ever since Street Fighter IV reignited the genre in 2009, we've been getting a number of interesting and diverse fight titles, ranging from the lush visuals of BlazBlue to the air combo extravaganza of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.

Along the way, we had The King of Fighters XII from [Register or Login to view links], touted as a "re-birth" of the traditional 3-on-3 series. And although it really gave new life to the franchise with gorgeous hi-def 2D sprite art and sleek animation, the game delivered little in terms of contents.

Two years later, SNK Playmore is hard at work to regain the crown with [Register or Login to view links] for PS3 courtesy of [Register or Login to view links] in the US. And based on the prospects, 13 seems to be the lucky number for KOF.

The game was originally launched in Japanese arcades back in July 2010, being praised by fighting game connoisseurs for its vastly expanded roster (31 playable characters, including the return of fan favorite Mai Shiranui), revised fighting system...
 

Aksys Games Announces Fate / Extra Hits the Sony PSP Today

50°
150w ago - Aksys Games Director of Production Frank "Bo" DeWindt has announced that Fate / Extra hits the Sony PSP and PSPgo handheld consoles today.

To quote: Fate. Destiny. A pre-destined future. Call it what you will, but fans of the highly successful Type-Moon franchise will come flocking at the mere mention of the word.

To those not quite as familiar with the Fate series or all things Type-Moon, we'd like to present to you an excellent entry point into the universe in the form of the exclusive PSP title Fate/EXTRA!

In this role-playing game you'll assume the role of a male or female protagonist as you pair up with one of three mystical and mysterious servants to aide you on your quest.

Saber: A class known for its well-balanced abilities and its superior swordsmanship. While Saber may be short in stature at a diminutive 4'9", her strength and skill with a sword make her worthy of the Saber-class designation.

Archer: A class that specializes in the use of ranged weapons such as bows. An enigmatic warrior clad in a scarlet coat who possesses the ability to excel at weapons other than the bow...

Caster: A class that excels at magic-based combat due to their superior intelligence, though at the cost of being woefully inadequate...

100°
151w ago - Dark Energy Digital Senior Creative Designer Rob Hewson has announced today alongside a video trailer that Hydrophobia Prophecy will be hitting PSN Tuesday with PlayStation Move support.

Below are the details, to quote: Launching a game is always a frantic, exciting time, especially when you are a small, close-knit team. The PlayStation Network launch of Hydrophobia Prophecy on November 1st is no exception; in fact we're even more excited than usual to have it launch as Game of the Month on PlayStation Plus, and we're really grateful to PlayStation for getting behind the game.

For those of you unfamiliar with the game, Hydrophobia Prophecy is third-person action adventure with a sci-fi twist and a unique dynamic feature; our custom HydroEngine fluid dynamics technology. It's a full physics simulation for flowing water - the only one of it's kind in games, which allows water to wash dynamically around the environments, carrying objects and characters along with it.

If you're a sucker for water or game physics, then it really is a sight to behold - we're very fortunate here at Dark Energy to have some incredibly talented tech-heads!





HydroEngine allows us to deliver dynamic and unique physics-based...

To quote: InFamous: Festival of Blood will be available on the PlayStation Store in just a couple days: Tuesday, October 25th in North America for $9.99, and $7.99 for PlayStation Plus members (you can even pre-order now on the PlayStation Store).

Play it with the classic DualShock or try it out with PlayStation Move support!

Before you get your hands on the game, we had Animation Director Billy Harper and Marketing Director Ken Schramm pack their bags for a whirlwind three-day tour spanning 5,668 miles, two coasts, three cities, and over 20 interviews with press from North America and beyond. It was an amazing couple of days of sharing the latest adventure in the inFAMOUS universe.

We have been pretty quiet about Festival of Blood since we teased you with a clip revealing Bloody Mary at PAX. Since then we have been hard at work crafting this next adventure, adding in all the final details and finishing touches on this standalone game to make the perfect purchase right in time for Halloween.

This press tour allowed us to pull the curtain back and give one big preview before the game comes out next week. Billy and...
