47w ago - CCP Games Creative Director and Praetorian Atli Mar Sveinsson has announced that Dust 514's open Beta for PlayStation 3 officially goes live today!
Below are the details, to quote: Pioneering PlayStation community! We've reached an exciting milestone in our development of DUST 514: the open beta. Some of you may already be familiar with the concept after having followed our dev blogs or news articles, or perhaps you have been helping us in the closed beta.
But some may be hearing about this for the first time. I would like to give you guys a quick overview on the game, and the new phase of development, the open beta.
What is DUST 514?
DUST is a PS3-exclusive triple-A free-to-play MMOFPS (massively multiplayer online first person shooter), directly set in and connected in real time with the science fiction universe of EVE Online.
What that means is that not only is DUST a full-fledged MMOFPS in its own right, with unrivaled persistence and customization, it also coexists on the same servers as its older PC sibling, EVE Online. DUST and EVE share several game systems such as mail, text and voice chat, corporations, the in-game market and more.
Not only are the players of the two games able to communicate with each other and belong to the...
47w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has announced that Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories hits PlayStation Network today with details below, as follows:
Greetings all! We're super excited that Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories is coming to PSN later today as a PS2 Classic! I'm dropping by today to talk briefly about the title and to answer any questions you may have for us!
First let's talk about the Disgaea in general for those that are new to the series. Disgaea is a turn-based strategy role-playing game series that is well known for its over-the-top attacks that give you the ability to inflict millions of points of damage on your enemies, its cast of hilarious and memorable characters, and lastly its deep customizable gameplay and seemingly endless replayability. If you're an RPG fan and new to the series, this is an opportune chance to try it out on your PS3 for only $9.99!
Here is the story in a nutshell: a mighty Overlord named Zenon (one of my favorite characters) has cursed the land and now Veldime is transforming into a nasty Netherworld. Memories are sterilized, bodies demonized, and the world is generally falling into chaos.
The only one unaffected is a young man, named Adell. He stands up to fight the curse, but of course things never go as planned. Enter...
48w ago - Capcom Community Manager Greg Moore has announced alongside a Face Your Demons video trailer that DmC Devil May Cry officially hits Blu-ray and PSN today!
Below are the details, to quote: The time to face your demons has arrived! DmC Devil May Cry for PlayStation 3 is in stores now, and downloadable from PSN in a day-and-date digital release.
We're really delighted with the final project and I think Ninja Theory did an amazing job of combining existing elements of previous DmCs, while injecting their own flavor into the franchise.
Players can definitely expect to see both radically new elements and returning staple elements from past Devil May Cry games.
New to the gameplay are the Demon and Angel powers, which allow (and demand) Dante to switch fluidly between separate sets of abilities and weapons. The Demon side delivers heavy-hitting but slower attacks, while the Angel side unleashes swift area attacks that are relatively low damage.
Dante can now also use grappling chains to propel himself, enemies, and other objects between two points, allowing for a new emphasis on positioning, crowd control, aerial combat, and some flashy traversal.
As far as the gameplay experience, you'll see a return to the series' trademark mixture of gunplay and swordplay...
48w ago - Gearbox Software Writer Anthony Burch has announced alongside a video that Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt begins today.
To quote: Hey there, Anthony Burch from Gearbox here! Sir Hammerlock had told me that in the past he wrote his PlayStation fans a letter, so naturally when I mentioned I was writing this blog post he jumped at the opportunity to do it for me. Sucker! He's all book smarts.
Salutations, Vault Hunters!
Sir Hammerlock here, with a cracking proposal for you. Being the oh-so-well-armed badass you are, you've already saved the world, found a pirate's treasure, and spectacularly murdered your way to the top of a badass leaderboard or two. But.
Have you - he asked, pausing for dramatic effect - have you ever fought a Stalker the size of a small building? Have you ever fought a mystical shaman bandit who can level up his companions at will? Have you ever hunted down Scaylions, Boroks, Spores and Savages?
As you have not yet joined me on my excursion to the brutal continent of Aegrus, I shall pre-emptively answer on your behalf: "No, Sir Hammerlock," you say. "I have yet to do any of these things. Pray tell - how could a no-nonsense brigand like myself experience...
