Video: Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut Hits PS3 on April 30th

52w ago - Writer and Director Swery made available a video today announcing that Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut hits PS3 on April 30th, 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: The development of Deadly Premonition is sort of like finishing a full-length marathon...several times over. In other words, Deadly Premonition is my hobby, my business, my study, and my motivation in life - it's an all-encompassing journey and adventure.

Especially to me, it has been a very vital tool to connect with people around the world. It is a feeling that I equate with romance or marriage; like somebody I love dearly, or like a kid who will never listen to his parents.

But I don't have any kids though. Haha! It has been a wonderful journey, and one that I hope will continue to always live on.

I have always been surprised and humbled by the feedback that fans and press have given Deadly Premonition, and by the adornment and cult following that it has garnered. Personally, I would like to think that Deadly Premonition has received the status that it has because there weren't really any games out at the time that were quite like it.

Fans who enjoyed the original will look to seek out another game that will provide them with a similar level of interest and excitement, but perhaps...
 

Video: Dragon's Crown for PS3, PS Vita Melts Faces August 6, 2013

52w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin posted up a video today announcing that Dragon's Crown for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms will be melting faces this August 6, 2013.

To quote: Dragon's Crown has had a long development process - especially for those of you who remember E3 2011 when Ignition first mentioned the game.

But now ATLUS and Odin Sphere developer Vanillaware are putting a stake in the ground for August 6th, 2013. If you're not familiar with Dragon's Crown, it's a 2D multiplayer action beat-em-up exclusive to the PS3 and PS Vita that features four-person co-op play, six character classes, skills that can be leveled up, and all the dungeon-exploring, orc-slapping, treasure-seeking action you can shake a magical staff at.

If you're not familiar with the date August 6th, please consult a calendar.

One of the reasons development took so long is the painstaking detail that makes every character, background or combat animation worthy of the artistic vision of Vanillaware. The intricacies in the artwork are immediately noticeable on both the PS3 and PS Vita versions.

Speaking of, we're working right now on making sure that gamers can take their saved games with them on the Vita. So while Vita adventurers can't party up with PlayStation dungeoneers, it doesn't...

Sony Unveils God Mode, Storms PlayStation Network on April 23, 2013

52w ago - Old School Games Producer Nick Madonna announced via Sony's blog today that God Mode storms PlayStation Network on April 23, 2013.

To quote: Old School Games is a new game studio launched by Saber Interactive whose focus is to deliver low-cost, high-quality downloadable titles.

Using Saber's technology and development platform, we strive to create digital games that look like retail products. With our first release, God Mode, we wanted to create a lighthearted throwback experience, which focuses on arcade-style action over story. We came up with a classic premise - fighting to get out of Hell - then wrapped it in a third-person shooter with 3D graphics on par with full-price titles.

Finally, we added a slew weapons: plasma launchers, rail guns and what we affectionately call the "buzzsaw," in order to wipe out waves and waves of demonic hordes.

We decided that God Mode should be less about deep narrative and more about action. This approach gave us the ability to really go crazy and build a unique world full of plenty of characters to shoot, blow up, impale and maim.

After making this decision early on in the design process, the designers...
