18w ago - BitComposer Games PR Manager Daniel Krauss shared a video today showcasing the napalm-infused action of Thunder Wolves, which hits PSN on August 13th, 2013.
To quote: As kids in the '80s, we grew up with outrageous action heroes capable of toppling entire regimes without ever reloading - and as for how those bullets made everything explode... some questions just aren't worth asking.
Not everyone needs complicated storylines with brotastic melodrama, or epic amounts of padding to fill the hours. Sometimes, we simply have the urge to grab a controller and blow $#!& up from a chopper.
Maybe it seems weird to mention destruction as a 'feature' of gameplay, but in Thunder Wolves, out August 13th on PSN, we have buildings crumbling into searing clouds, tanks exploding on impact, foot-soldiers being utterly vaporized, and... you get the idea. In short, Thunder Wolves is a little adrenaline-surge rolled up with the perfect after-work stress relief.
18w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari revealed today that the Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta for PS Vita arrives in late August while the Closed Beta is live now.
To quote: We're excited to announce that the Killzone: Mercenary closed multiplayer beta (for which signups were held a short while ago and already concluded, if you're just tuning in now) is now LIVE. To those who got in, you should already have the necessary information to jump in and get going.
Note: If you received a multiplayer Beta voucher as part of the promotion via PlayStation Home, please note that your voucher is for the Open Beta in late August, not for the closed Beta launching today.
To those of you who didn't get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we're going to open the multiplayer beta right on up in late August - details will be coming really soon, so stay tuned.
And really, who doesn't like a good open beta? They're a bit draftier. They let in more natural light. Better for Agoraphobes and such.
Killzone: Mercenary hits shelves in North America on September 10th, 2013.
19w ago - Vivid Games Brand Manager Jan Chichlowski announced today that Real Boxing on PS Vita enters the ring this August 27th for $9.99.
To quote: Here at Vivid Games we do like a fight. The art team is terrible at making teas and coffees - so that often ends in fisticuffs.
The sound guys are always making too much noise - and with the recent warm weather that's meant we've been extra grumpy, so often their racket has ended in a punch-up. And as for the management team? Well they are often throwing their weight around - so the rest of us really enjoy punching them in the face.
Not in real life, obviously. Fortunately, as the developer and publisher of Real Boxing, we're able to settle any disputes we have in the virtual ring. And we're really excited to reveal that you guys will be able to do the same on PS Vita on August 27th, for $9.99.
As the name suggests, Real Boxing is a boxing simulation game where you'll create a boxer and take him on a journey from amateur to pro. There are also a multitude of other modes and features including multiplayer so you can touch gloves remotely with friends.
There will also be regular tournaments based on leaderboard rankings, so there's always a new challenge ahead. Boxing games seem to be rather few and far between, so we're...
