55w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today that Persona 4 Golden is coming to PlayStation Vita this Fall!
To quote: Look at it. Just look at it. Your PlayStation Vita. It's so sexy, isn't it? Those sleek, glossy curves...Those adorable analog sticks... That gigantic OLED screen. Oh my goodness, dat screen.
Wouldn't it be amazing if there were some RPG, some massive RPG with dozens and dozens of hours of tried-and-true gameplay and a captivating story to tell?
Sure, it takes a while for every system to really get to that meaty part of its lifecycle, but luckily for PS Vita owners, their new handheld is going to get that game this fall.
That's right, boys and girls, Persona 4 Golden, the enhanced and expanded (yet comfortably handheld) upgrade to the award-winning RPG classic, is coming to a PS Vita near you-preferably the one in your hands as you're reading this-this fall.
The original game has an overall Metacritic score of 90 and tons of "Editor's Choice" and "Best Of" awards. It's generally considered one of the finest games ever made, certainly one of the best in its genre, delivering oodles of hours of enthralling storytelling, immensely satisfying combat, intricate party management, and addicting Persona collection...
56w ago - Today CCP Community Manager CmdrWang has revealed how dynamic battlefields take shape in Dust 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: In traditional or mainstream FPS games, the mission area, i.e. the layout of objectives, structures, and spawn locations, are fairly static, thus making missions predictable after playing them a few times.
This is not the case in DUST 514. Because of its sandbox nature, we want to give players the freedom to change the battlefield through choices and this is where the "dynamic" part of the battlefields will come from.
This means that battlefields in DUST 514 could change based on the actions that players make - from innocuous actions such as changing one's character fitting before a deployment, all the way up to decisions made light years away in a player owned corporate board room.
However, giving players a big sandbox to play in does not simply mean throwing a bunch of random choices at them and say, "go." For players to experience the uniquely emergent gameplay offered by the EVE Online universe, the freedom that these choices offer must be handled in a meaningful manner.
To illustrate this, we will be looking at how battlefields in DUST 514 are...

57w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.
To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.
Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.
And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.
Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.
I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his Dyad EP, and you can hear more of his interactive music here.
