164w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator Ryan Phillips has announced today that ZHP: Unlosing Ranger VS. Darkdeath Evilman is coming to PSP and PSPgo handhelds on October 26, 2010 and shared a video of it in action!
For those who haven't heard about it yet, it is a dungeon "grindfest" game featuring randomly generated dungeons and items allowing for endless possibilities and loads of replay value.
You star as the newly appointed "Unlosing Ranger" who has to defeat Darkdeath Evilman in order to save the mysterious "Super Baby." I know it all sounds confusing as the premise for a game, but as the story quickly unfolds you'll get introduced to some hilarious characters and some curiously familiar people - even politicians!?
Among the world of Dungeon Crawling RPGs or roguelikes, I think Z.H.P: Unlosing Ranger VS. Darkdeath Evilman really shines. Although, true to roguelikes, you are punished for dying mid-dungeon and may develop mental trauma against the mob that killed you, you still are able to maintain stats through...

166w ago - Senior Producer Josh Bridge has revealed today that Dead Rising 2: Psycho, Ninja, Sports, and Soldier DLC are all coming soon to PSN.
To quote: As a huge zombie lover, I am really pumped to see us able to get Dead Rising series out to PS3 owners. Everyone deserves the right to slice a zombie in two!
Developing the game for the PS3 was something that we started right at the beginning of our development process. We are not fans of porting, and wanted to be sure that we maximized the PS3's capabilities.
Our development tools allow us to be platform agnostic while at the same time maximize the power of the Cell processor. The zombies are handled by the SPUs, allowing us to throw tons of them onscreen while still managing their movement and AI.
We also have have lots of cool processing effects going, something that was also made possible by the PS3′s SPUs.
We have tons of stuff to mess around with in Dead Rising 2, and having a huge amount of disc space to use really allowed us to get everything we wanted into the game. Installing the game definitely speeds up load times, something that made developing for the PS3 a great experience.
We also have some cool DLC coming up that we got a kick out of making. We really liked the idea of customizing Chuck,...

166w ago - Today Spike Games Creative Director Prithvi Virasinghe has confirmed that Deadliest Warrior: The Game on PS3 is officially coming to PSN tomorrow.
To quote: We are really excited for the launch of Deadliest Warrior: The Game on PlayStation 3! In addition to the game we also have new avatars and themes that went up on September 28th.
If you are a fighting game fan then we hope you enjoy the realistic battle system we created. Prepare to slice and dice (literally) your opponents, but don't be surprised if your opponent also chops off an arm, leg or even your head.
The best advice we can give to new players is: play defense! Be tactical and look for the appropriate opening to strike. This is more a game of timing than it is about button dexterity. One-hit kills can happen so stay alert and don't rush your enemy foolishly.
Sometimes all you need are a few strokes to achieve victory. Because we wanted the game to stay true to the Deadliest Warrior show premise we wanted the warriors to be tough! So when you start playing, don't be surprised if the game is HARD. Because it is!
No really, if you go to the game settings and check the difficulty you notice that we start you on HARD. You're welcome! If you want to slice...
