Video: The Ratchet & Clank Never Seen: 10 Years of Concept Art

50°
128w ago - Insomniac Games Chief Operating Officer John Fiorito has unveiled some rare concept art today spanning over the last 10 years from Ratchet & Clank for die-hard fans.

To quote: The Ratchet & Clank franchise turns 10 this year, and to celebrate their anniversary we will release the Ratchet & Clank Collection on PS3.

Ever since the first Ratchet & Clank game launched, fans have written us wanting to see concept art. While concepts are just one of many pieces we use to put our games together, they are a fun way to show the history of the Ratchet & Clank universe.

So I searched around the studio and pulled together a collection of images that go all the way back to 2002 when Insomniac started working on a new game...

In The Beginning... well actually it was 2000. We were wrapping up Spyro: Year of the Dragon and looking ahead to the PlayStation 2. After spending a year developing a new game code-named "I5" and later known as "Girl with a Stick," we canceled the project and decided to shift gears.

(To find out more about Girl with a Stick and its ultimate demise, check out the [Register or Login to view links]). That left us with only a few months to present a new idea and we started working on...
 

Video: XSeed Announces Way of The Samurai 4 Out on PSN Today

50°
128w ago - XSeed Senior Editor Jessica Chavez has announced today that Way of The Samurai 4 is out on PSN beginning today with a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last time , my colleague Tom introduced you guys to our upcoming release (out today!), Way of the Samurai 4.

He expounded on the back story, the sandbox nature of its gameplay, and a bit of the silliness you will encounter if you take up arms in Amihama.

He tried to warn you. I'm just going to tell you. This game is crazy. Like, if you punch people, eggs fall out crazy.

Way of the Samurai 4 drops players into a period drama populated by Edo-era Japanese citizens, trade-hungry foreigners and hundreds of crates flaunting their breakability. As a masterless samurai, you're free to aid whichever faction vying for dominance in Amihama that you like.

You can choose to support the local government (the Shogunate forces), the isolationists movement (the Prajna), or the diminutive, sweets-obsessed diplomatic envoy from the British. Or you can do what I did and just run around killing everybody.

Whether or not you play by the rules is up to you. With ten endings and a ton of branching story potentials, I highly recommend just trying everything. Everything.



 

Orgarhythm by XSeed for PlayStation Vita: Music Meets Strategy

50°
129w ago - XSeed Senior Editor Jessica Chavez has outlined Orgarhythm for PlayStation Vita today describing the PS Vita title as music meeting strategy.

To quote: Orgarhythm is a game that's going to puzzle a lot of people.

It's certainly not a premise that I've ever seen before, much less played. In short, Orgarhythm is the marriage of music and strategy - and some very nice touch controls. It's a game where you march to the beat, literally.

The premise is simple: There are two brothers, one that embodies creation, the other destruction. Together they settle on a planet and set about pumping out hordes of mini-tribal dudes who seem to really enjoy dancing.

The God of Light (the brother who thinks growing stuff is neat and probably listens to Jack Johnson) is making great progress spawning kittens, erecting maypoles or whatever kind of idyllic stuff you might imagine a sparkling deity likes.

Meanwhile, the other God (of Darkness) would rather just break all of his brother's toys. Understandably vexed, the God of Light decides it's time for a dance off and begins his slow-mo march to battle.

That's where you come in. Using the touch screen controls on your PS Vita, you'll direct the God of Light's backup dancers and tap-tap-tap your way through enemies. The...
 

XSeed Unveils Way of the Samurai 4 is Coming Exclusively to PS3

200°
148w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has unveiled today that Way of the Samurai 4 is coming exclusively to the PS3 entertainment system with details below.

To quote: Say WotS?! You heard me right! Spike and Acquire's Way of the Samurai 4 is confirmed for release in North America on the PS3, and we at XSEED Games are pleased to be bringing it to you fully uncut and uncensored.

Torture chambers, naughty midnight missions in the dark and all the brutal slaughtering you can handle await in this riveting and 100% historically accurate (shhhh!) sandbox-style samurai period drama.

Admiral Perry has just opened Japan's borders to the British, allowing for a long-overdue globalization process to begin.

Unfortunately, one of the open ports happens to be a modest Japanese burg called Amihama, where a resistance group known as the "Disciples of Prajna" have taken up arms against the arriving foreigners and all who support them.

As a lone samurai who's just arrived amidst the chaos, it's up to you whether you want to join forces with the Prajna resistance, fight alongside the foreigners in the name of progress or take your stance somewhere between the two by supporting the local government's attempts to quell the violence (through any means possible).
