6w ago - Escape Hatch Entertainment President Garry M. Gaber announced today that Starlight Inception is coming to PlayStation Vita in December, 2013.
To quote: Welcome to Starlight Inception, a first-person / third-person space combat experience coming to PS Vita in December. It contains a single-player campaign, single-player Fly Patrol (tower defense), and several multiplayer options.
The inspiration for Starlight Inception was the old space sim games that we loved as kids, but with a more sophisticated, modern sensibility.
We don't intend the fighters in Starlight Inception to be retextures of World War II fighters, but something more modern and space capable. And unlike those older games, Starlight Inception was designed to allow flight from space down to planetary/lunar environments with seamless transitions.
In Starlight Inception, you're a young space fighter pilot assigned to the U.S.F. Midway (SCVN-41) one hundred years from tomorrow. In the first mission (included in the beta going live today) you'll learn about your ship, the controls, and face your first enemies.
This mission is the only one included in this early Beta, but it should give a taste for what this game looks like and feels like. The intention was to really integrate the training into the...

7w ago - XSEED Games Localization Manager Ryan Graff announced today that Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is coming to both PS3 and PS Vita in 2014.
To quote: Since we first announced our action RPG Ragnarok Odyssey ACE back in May, we've gotten all kinds of questions, the most popular among them being, "What exactly is Ragnarok Odyssey ACE?" Fans want to know if it's a DLC expansion for the original Ragnarok Odyssey, if it's a whole new game, whether your character and/or story progress carries over, and so on.
Because I've got a minute, in between proofreading ACE's script and heading out to the voiceover studio, I wanted to answer some of those questions now.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is a full game - a revised and expanded version of the original Ragnarok Odyssey. We'll be releasing it early next year in North America for both Vita and PS3, and up to four players will be able to cross-play between the two platforms.
Both versions will retail for $39.99. As a "thank you" to returning players on the handheld, ACE's Vita version will ship with a bonus soundtrack CD, with 25 songs - including one very nice composition from Nobuo Uematsu, called "Roar of the Black Dragon."
Players with existing Ragnarok Odyssey saves can import their character's physical appearance, voice, job class,...
7w ago - Mighty Rocket Studio CEO Francois Potentier announced today alongside a video trailer that Final Exam is coming to PlayStation 3 on November 5th, 2013.
To quote: Hey, I'm Francois. I run Mighty Rocket Studio, and I'm pleased to talk about Final Exam with you. There are nine people in the studio, and this is our first game. We created the studio for this game. So we hope that you'll love it!
Final Exam is a beat'em up in which your goal is simple: survive. You were going to a class reunion. It should have been a fantastic party... and you suddenly realize that there are monsters everywhere... and they're after you.
You can choose from 4 characters that are all classic, teen archetypes. Brutal Joe is the quarterback of the group. He likes hitting and everything related to raw power.
Cassy is a street dancer (I'm sure she was a cheerleader in school), and her special attacks are dance moves. Nathan is a geek. He loves technological stuff (and he's my favorite). The last one, Sean, is the handsome guy... but the bad boy. He likes playing with firearms.
Each character has unique, powerful attacks based on their skills. Each skill has 4 power levels, up to the ultimate attack that blasts everything...
