Sony Outlines Resident Evil 6 for PS3: Bringing People Together

100°
110w ago - Sony Brazil Blog Manager Fabio Santana has outlined Resident Evil 6 for PS3 in an interview today, which arrives on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system this October.

Below are the details from the interview, to quote: At E3 2012, Capcom offered a glimpse of the three different scenarios we'll be playing in Resident Evil 6.

Players could enjoy a co-op between Leon Kennedy and newcomer Helena Harper in classic survival-horror style in a Tall Oaks full of zombies, face a boss battle with Jake Muller (son of longtime series baddie Albert Wesker) and Sherry Birkin (aka the little girl from RE2), or battle across the rooftops of China with Chris Redfield and his partner Tony Ponce.

But the company also revealed a new feature behind closed doors: the Crossover system, an evolution of the dual-threaded Scenario mechanic from Resident Evil 2, this time not only intersecting the story of different characters but also bringing their gameplay together in four-player co-op situations.

To demonstrate Crossover, Capcom's developers played a scene where Leon and Helena meet with Jake and Sherry in China. En route via airplane, the US agents are attacked by a B.O.W. (that's Bio-Organic Weapon for the uninitiated) and crash. Wesker's son and his young partner are already on the ground...

Outlaws Of The Lost Dynasty Fights Onto PlayStation Network

200°
115w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has announced today that Outlaws Of The Lost Dynasty is fighting it's way onto PlayStation Network with details below.

To quote: The Import section is now over a month old. Thanks for tuning in and showing interest!

So far, we've built up the shooter portfolio with some old-school twitchers. Now we're going to switch gears and present a great fighter from Land of the Rising Yen.

Our release this week will be Arcade Hits: Outlaws of the Lost Dynasty, a classic fighter from the era of when beat'em-ups ruled the consoles. It had progressive and pioneering elements that many future fighters mimicked.

And in some aspects, it exceeded what the legendary games of the fighter class established. This was Data East's second major attempt at a fighting game series, after Fighters History.

The game is set in the world of the ancient novel Water Margin, also known as the Legend of 108 Outlaws. In Japanese, the novel is translated as Suikoden - and this is a fighting game in that same universe. The story surrounds 12 of the 108 outlaws, testing their skills in Liangshan Marsh (where the novel takes place) as the Gods of War judge from the heavens.

We hope you'll like this fighter as it really brings back...
