Sony Goes Hands-on With Borderlands 2 on PlayStation Vita

50°
12w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on with Borderlands 2 on PlayStation Vita today with details below.

To quote: The PlayStation social team recently had a chance to play a build of Borderlands 2 on PS Vita, and as the group's resident Borderlandophile, I immediately called dibs. What can I say about this game? It's Borderlands 2 on the Vita!

Controlling Borderlands 2 on PS Vita is a customizable affair: just go into options and remap to your heart's content. To change a control, tap the action or button (even the abilities assigned to the touch screen or rear touch pad) you want to change, then tap wherever you want the action to be.

By default, tapping different areas of Vita's rear touch pad yield a sprint or a melee attack, while a tap on the front screen tosses a grenade or activates your character-specific ability.

Shoulder buttons L and R still aim and shoot, though I did notice a useful new feature that takes advantage of PS Vita's built-in gyroscope: when you're aiming down the sight, moving PS Vita will adjust your aim.

Environments and character models are surprisingly detailed, and the game overall runs at a solid clip, generally hovering in the vicinity of 30 frames per second. Slicing dudes up as my main cyborg-man-alien-mystery-assassin-thing...

To quote: The day has arrived! The first two episodes of The Walking Dead: Season Two are now available on PS Vita.

Each episode is $4.99 - or you can save 20% over purchasing each of the episodes individually by getting the Season Pass.

As with The Walking Dead: Season One, we've added a little something special for Vita: you can play with the analog controls and face buttons, or switch to touchscreen only for a more "intimate" undead experience.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and be sure to keep an eye out for news on the upcoming Episode 3 - In Harm's Way!
 

Video: NIS America: Demon Gaze is Out Today on PlayStation Vita

13w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo posted up a video today announcing that Demon Gaze is out today on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Greetings, doods! It's your humble Prinny David, and I'm excited to let you know that the dungeon-crawling RPG Demon Gaze is out today in North America exclusively for PS Vita!

For the first month of the game's release, we'll also be offering free Disgaea DLC that will allow you to download character portraits of Etna, Flonne, Sicily, Asagi, and Prinny as party members.

What sort of dungeon-crawling madness can you expect from the game? Let's get right into it!





You'll play as an unnamed hero who awakes in the strange land of Misrid with no recollection of your past. You soon find out that you're no ordinary amnesiac, however, and that you're actually a Demon Gazer - someone born with the ability to control demons.

This is quite handy, because Misrid is riddled with demons who control different parts of the world. Now it's up to you to control all these demons and discover who you truly are in the process.

You're not alone in this quest, however. When you're not crawling through dungeons, you'll be spending a...

14w ago - Guerilla Cambridge Tech Director Matt Porter announced that Killzone Mercenary Botzone is officially out today on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: A few weeks ago we added two classic Killzone multiplayer maps to Killzone Mercenary.

Since then we've been working on adding more to Killzone Mercenary, and finally it's here on PS Vita. We're very pleased to announce the release of our latest update for Killzone Mercenary, delivering an offline multiplayer experience to our 8 maps.

With the purchase of the Botzone Soldier Training Pack, all of our multiplayer maps can be played offline in Mercenary or Guerrilla Warfare modes, against up to 7 AI soldiers. As the game host, you'll have control over the number of teammates and enemies joining you in battle.

In team modes, you have the luxury of picking your compatriots and foes: play with 3 against 1 for a quick kill, or go brave and take on an entire team of bots alone. Your choice, soldier!

Killzone Mercenary Botzone brings new skills to the series' traditionally strong AI bot experience: Vanguard usage, zip line navigation, interrogations, rescues, capsule hacking, and valour card collection are all behaviors unique to the game and our AI is going to challenge you with all of them. Not only that, but our cunning bots...
