77w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up a video today showcasing Assassin's Creed III Liberation's touch controls in action on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: A bit of advice for Assassin's Creed fans: get some sleep this weekend. Come Tuesday, you'll get to immerse yourself in the Revolutionary mythology of Assassin's Creed III both at home and on the go.

If you've been keeping up with our coverage of Aveline de Grandpre's portable adventure, you're likely already aware of Assassin's Creed III Liberation's open-world gameplay, its crossover with the PS3's Assassin's Creed III, and it's PS Vita-specific features.

But showing is better than telling, so have a look at some of Liberation's (optional) touch controls in action, as AC3L Writer Richard Farreese tells us how the team adapted the series' new control scheme to PS Vita. Spoiler: they didn't have to change much.





You're forgiven for gawking at that Crystal White PS Vita. I haven't washed my hands since we recorded that footage. Assassin's Creed III Liberation arrives this Tuesday alongside Assassin's Creed III, both in stores and via PlayStation Network.
 

Video: PS3 Action RPG Of Orcs and Men Hits PSN This Tuesday

79w ago - Cyanide Producer Sylvain Sechi has shared a video trailer today announcing that the PS3 action RPG Of Orcs and Men is hitting PSN this Tuesday.

To quote: Hi PlayStation players, this is Sylvain from Cyanide. I'm here to give you an introduction to the world of Greenskins and humans.

Of Orcs and Men is an action RPG, taking place in a dark and mature universe where Greenskins (orcs and goblins) have finally been defeated after a long war against the human kingdom.

The emperor has decided that, in order to prevent any further war against the Greenskins, it's best to just commit full-on genocide - unfortunately for you, you'll be controlling an orc and a goblin.

As the game starts, Arkail (the massive orc) and Styx (the stealthy goblin) are among the last of their race still alive. They are sent on a suicide mission - to reach the land of the humans and assassinate the Emperor, thus stopping the massacre and enslavement of greenskins.

Originally, while playing with the prototype, we enjoyed controlling Styx and Arkail individually, but even more, we liked the combinations they could have. We kept improving features to make them as unique as possible, but we also worked on tandem attacks for use in combat (like throwing...
 

Video: Fuel Overdose: A Tactical Action Racing Game Coming to PSN

85w ago - I-Friqiya Executive Producer Skander Djerbi has shared a video today spotlighting the upcoming tactical action racing game coming to PSN called Fuel Overdose below.

To quote: In 2010, we started the development of Fuel Overdose with the ambition of offering a new kind of solo and multiplayer action racing experience, by bringing more variety to the combat gameplay as well as a tactical approach to the genre. That's why we like to think of Fuel Overdose as a "Tactical-Action-Racing" game.

Our first decision was to go for a top-down/isometric perspective, as we wanted to have a camera system that gives you the innovative features that make Fuel Overdose feel unique. Today, with the first official trailer, we're introducing the racing component of the game.

When we decided to go for a top-down/isometric camera system, we pulled our old consoles out of the closet to try to recapture the spirit of classic racing games. We immediately remembered that what we loved about them is that balance between the immediate fun they deliver and the depth of their gameplay.

With Fuel Overdose, we want to deliver a game that walks the line between arcade and simulation. In order to show their edge, the best drivers will have to master many different vehicles, each with its own specific handling.

100w ago - Retro City Rampage developer Brian Provinciano has posted up a video today of Retro City Rampage in action on PlayStation Vita with details below.

To quote: As I announced in the last blog post, Retro City Rampage is coming to PS3 and PS Vita! But today I bring more great news...

Recently in Toronto we held an amazing event called PlayStation Heart Canada to promote and support Canadian indie game developers.

In attendance were us here at Vblank Entertainment, Drinkbox Studios (Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack), Queasy Games (Sound Shapes), ][ Games (Dyad) and more. It was a blast!

For me, the highlight was finally giving fans a chance to see and play the PS Vita version of Retro City Rampage for the first time. I've been going on for a while about how amazing it looks on the PS Vita, and now you can see what it looks like for yourself.

Those of you who are worried that the characters might be too small on the PS Vita screen needn't be! It supports two screen modes.





The standard mode designed specifically for the PS Vita scales everything up and ensures that the characters...
 

Video: See PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in Action on PS3

103w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Game Director Omar Kendall has shared a video today showcasing PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in action on the PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: Today marks a special day for us here at SuperBot Entertainment, as we finally get to share our game with the world! PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale existed as an idea in the hearts of gamers way before SuperBot got around to making it, and the expectations of the fans are really what drive us.

This game is a labor of love, and we're excited to be able to finally show it - learn more in our new video interview above.

So what is PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale? First and foremost, it's a celebration of a storied history of great characters and rich worlds brought together in one game.

And for us, there's no better way to celebrate than by creating an experience that players can sit around one screen and enjoy together.

There are probably a few types of games that can be enjoyed by four players simultaneously, but for us at SuperBot, a brawler was the obvious choice for one really good reason: the developers here at SuperBot really like fighting games
