Llamasoft: TxK Out Today: The History, Development and Gameplay

50°
33w ago - Llamasoft Founder Jeff Minter confirmed that TxK is out today on PS Vita, with details on the title's history, development and PlayStation Vita gameplay below.

To quote: TxK is the latest in a particular genre of arcade-style shooters which can be described as "neo-retro".

These games are characterised by gameplay inspired by arcade games of old, but take advantage of modern hardware to provide graphics and audio that far surpass anything that was possible back in ancient times.

Often they take as inspiration some aspect of an older display style and, through modern graphics hardware and techniques, seek to create an experience that is evocative of its ancestry but far nicer-looking.

You've all seen games like "[Register or Login to view links]", where the enemies and player characters are made of glowing lines.

These line-based displays go back to an old, obsolete yet beautiful display technology that was used in the arcades, called "vector graphics".

Back then it was not possible to generate pixel-based displays that had a high resolution, and as a result images in games tended to look blocky, as if made out of bricks. "Vector graphics" was a different way of driving a graphics display, causing...
 

Toukiden: The Age of Demons is Out Today on PlayStation Vita

33w ago - KOEI Co Ltd Producer Kenichi Ogasawara announced that Toukiden: The Age of Demons is out today on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Today's the day to become a Slayer and save the world from the Oni's destruction!

The most exciting aspect of Toukiden: The Age of Demons is the "targeted destruction system" where players can feel the exhilaration of severing parts of the Oni's body and destroying them. Players can choose from six different weapons, each with their own original attack methods and attributes.

Using powerful attacks to slash, thrust and crush parts of the enormous enemy, I think it might excite the natural instincts of players.

It is difficult to defeat the Oni, however, just by attacking them. By destroying parts of the Oni, the life energy that exists within them will be drawn to the surface. Attacking this life energy will truly damage the Oni.

However, Oni not only possess an enormous life force, they are able to regenerate parts that are cut off - and these regenerated parts become even more powerful.

The severed Oni parts that have fallen to the ground can be permanently destroyed through the Ritual of Purification, and this prevents the body part from being regenerated. Thus, in order to defeat the Oni, the destruction of body...

33w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo announced that Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is out today on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Greetings, doods! It's David again from NIS America here to let you know that the much anticipated title Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is out today in retail and digital form exclusively on PS Vita! If you haven't heard, let me - wait a minute, who's there? What's that crazy looking bear doing here with that hamme.

Hey, kids! David's decided to take a little nap, but your headmaster Monokuma comes bearing some great news! Today's the first day of school for you at Hope's Peak Academy, my super-special, super-elite high school for the best of the best and, since someone's too lazy to do it, I guess I'll have to give you the grand tour of where you'll be trapped - I mean, staying for a while. The whole tour should be quick and painless, so get off your butts already and follow me!





First off, you'll be seeing things through the eyes of Makoto Naegi, who won a ticket into this most prestigious school and is the Ultimate Lucky Student - but that's debatable. Everyone here is the best at what they do, because I've got very high standards and I don't even know why you're here....

God of War Collection is Coming to PlayStation Vita May 6th, 2014

33w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studios Developer Cory Barlog announced today that God of War Collection is coming to PlayStation Vita on May 6th, 2014.

To quote: Wait, what? God of War 1 and 2 are coming to Vita? Are you frakking kidding me? YEAAAAHH!!!

All of the work in my career is an important part of making me who I am but the first two 'God of War' games were truly the catalysts for a creative A-Bomb... and no small amount of F-Bomb's too.

'God of War' 1 and 2 changed the course of my career forever and nothing could please me more than to see them getting released on the Vita. We did some amazing work with the controls, seamless integration of an epic story into a load-free experience, and now that can be taken with you ANYWHERE!!

While I did not have a direct involvement in the actual process of bringing the epic-ness to the Vita I still feel an amazing connection to the release of these games, and a huge amount of respect for the wizards who made it possible.

I would not be writing this if it weren't for those two blood-soaked PS2 discs. Well, that's not true, I would be writing this but it would be with a well-worn crayon on the padded walls of a comfy cell in one of California fine institutions for the creatively insane, and the only person who would read...
