288w ago - SCEE has confirmed that LocoRoco 2 will be shipping across Europe this November.

The sequel to 2006's PSP hit "uses both music and colour as part of the gameplay" reads the press release.

The story begins when the happy and harmonious LocoRoco are attacked by the evil Moja army - who want to destroy their beautiful planet with their evil music.

Easy to pick up, players use the simple buttons of the PSP to tilt the LocoRoco's planet back and forth, manoeuvring the jelly-like bubbles of fun to collect musical notes and other colourful items.

As LocoRoco collect more musical notes, various bonus features will unlock, such as viewing maps. SCEE hasn't given a firm date in November, but rest assured it'll be here next month.
 

Mirror's Edge finally gets Dated, Arrives on November 11

200°
291w ago - EA has announced that the much-hyped free-running FPS Mirror's Edge will launch on November 11th on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version shipping "later in the winter". That of course means that it might not make 2008. Sad times for PC gamers.

Nevertheless, the publisher also confirmed that a demo would be available prior to release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, allowing gamers to trial a segment of the single player mode. Starting September 26th, gamers who pre-order the game at selected retailers will also get an exclusive code that unlocks a Time Trial mode in the demo.

"Mirror's Edge is bringing something new to the action-adventure genre this holiday by putting the player in the shoes of the hero, seeing what she sees, feeling what she feels," says Owen O'Brien, Senior Producer, DICE. "We wanted to create an entirely new experience, with a different type of heroine and a world that not only looks fresh and new but has unique gameplay."

As EA were quick to remind us, Mirror's Edge delivers players straight into the shoes of Faith, a modern day heroine who traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat, fast-paced chases and challenging puzzles. And it looks great.

Sony has just updated PlayStation.com (linked above) with an introduction to the game as well as 20 screens! The description kicks off with "Savage Moon sees you protecting a remote off-world mining facility from waves of ravenous space bugs, looking to consume everything in their path."

To quote: Armed with a fearsome array of defensive weapons, your mission is to take your choice of the finest armaments known to humankind and keep the facility safe by strategically placing these guns which then automatically fire at their targets.

Will you select the dependable rapid-fire machine gun? The intimidating Chaos Tower? Or opt for another item taken from the range of destructive weaponry at your disposal? Choose carefully, as each one has to be manually positioned for the greatest effectiveness in destroying the increasing waves of monstrous insects.

You are the only hope left on this Savage Moon.

* Upgrade your weapons to increase their size and firepower, and research even more devastating technologies to aid your mission
