Video: Sweet Fuse: At Your Side Lights Up PSP, PS Vita August 27th

51w ago - Aksys Games Editor Ben Bateman shared a video today announcing that Sweet Fuse: At Your Side lights up PSP and PS Vita platforms on August 27th, 2013.

To quote: Sweet Fuse: At Your Side (hereafter referred to as "Sweet Fuse," "The Product," or "Oh Captain My Captain") is an otome game, developed by Idea Factory and Otomate, and published by Aksys Games.

Coming to PSP and PS Vita (via PSN) on August 27th (and to retail soon after that), it follows the escapades of Saki Infaune, irascible fictional niece of legendary game developer Keiji Inafune as she navigates a deadly theme park and searches for that most elusive of emotions: Love.

What is Love?

Apart from, presumably, not hurting me anymore, that's a question history's great thinkers and poets have been asking for ages. Some say it's an illusion-Plato seems to think it has something to do with the pursuit of knowledge and perfect, unknowable, divine objects.

Scientists might tell you it's a biological and chemical imperative that drives us to procreate and thereby propagate our species. I certainly can't claim any special knowledge as to the answer, but I can tell you that Sweet Fuse is dedicated to the examination of it. But not exclusively!



 

Video: Thunder Wolves: Napalm-Infused Action on PSN August 13th

100°
51w ago - BitComposer Games PR Manager Daniel Krauss shared a video today showcasing the napalm-infused action of Thunder Wolves, which hits PSN on August 13th, 2013.

To quote: As kids in the '80s, we grew up with outrageous action heroes capable of toppling entire regimes without ever reloading - and as for how those bullets made everything explode... some questions just aren't worth asking.

At [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links], we wanted to combine the over-the-top destruction and old-school sensibilities with one of gaming's most underutilized vehicles; the helicopter.

Not everyone needs complicated storylines with brotastic melodrama, or epic amounts of padding to fill the hours. Sometimes, we simply have the urge to grab a controller and blow $#!& up from a chopper.

Maybe it seems weird to mention destruction as a 'feature' of gameplay, but in Thunder Wolves, out August 13th on PSN, we have buildings crumbling into searing clouds, tanks exploding on impact, foot-soldiers being utterly vaporized, and... you get the idea. In short, Thunder Wolves is a little adrenaline-surge rolled up with the perfect after-work stress relief.

Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta in Late August, Closed Beta Live Now

100°
51w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari revealed today that the Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta for PS Vita arrives in late August while the Closed Beta is live now.

To quote: We're excited to announce that the Killzone: Mercenary closed multiplayer beta (for which signups were held a short while ago and already concluded, if you're just tuning in now) is now LIVE. To those who got in, you should already have the necessary information to jump in and get going.

Note: If you received a multiplayer Beta voucher as part of the promotion via PlayStation Home, please note that your voucher is for the Open Beta in late August, not for the closed Beta launching today.

To those of you who didn't get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we're going to open the multiplayer beta right on up in late August - details will be coming really soon, so stay tuned.





And really, who doesn't like a good open beta? They're a bit draftier. They let in more natural light. Better for Agoraphobes and such.

Killzone: Mercenary hits shelves in North America on September 10th, 2013.
