Video: Telltale's Poker Night 2 Goes All-In: New Characters Arrive

50°
65w ago - Telltale Games Producer Adam Sarasohn announced today news of new characters including Brock Samson, Ash, Claptrap, GLaDOS, and more in Poker Night 2 alongside a video below.

To quote: You may be familiar with Telltale's episodic games like [Register or Login to view links] or the recently announced series [Register or Login to view links], but I'm here today to discuss the latest game that we've been working on – Telltale Games' Poker Night 2.

We got some of the best characters from film, television and video games to sit down at our table to play a few hands of Hold 'Em and Omaha.

On top of that, the game is bursting with unlockable content: you can unlock new decks, chips and felts, which can cause the Inventory (the venue for the game's chicanery) to take on a whole new look. You'll even unlock items outside of the game.

But first, let's talk about the characters you'll be facing at the table. To your immediate left looms Brock Samson, the (former) bodyguard to the Venture Family from Adult Swim's Venture Bros. This guy just oozes cool, but don't think about stealing his chips, because he has a license to kill and he's not afraid to use it.

He literally plays his cards close...
 

Sony Announces Divekick: A Tale of Two Buttons for PSN and PS Vita

50°
67w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has announced today that Divekick: A Tale of Two Buttons is coming for both PS3 via PSN and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: If you follow the fighting game community, you probably already know all about Divekick. If not, take a moment to read this intro post from Iron Galaxy to get up to speed.

Talk of Divekick at GDC last week was impossible to ignore, but how does it actually play? The game's minimalist design invites skepticism, but rest assured: this is a deeper, more addictive experience that you might imagine.

Divekick shrugs off the fighting game genre's longstanding barriers, creating a sleek, streamlined competitive experience - it's the primordial essence of what makes fighting games fun.

This is a game about outsmarting and outmaneuvering your opponent. Gone are complex input commands, phalangeal acrobatics, and superhuman timing windows. There are only two buttons: Dive and Kick. You won't be using the D-pad or analog stick. You can't block.

You can't even move... at least, not traditionally. To advance towards your opponent you tap Dive (a vertical leap), then Kick to propel your fighter feet-first.

A tap of the Kick button while on the ground results an evasive hop backward. Connecting...

69w ago - Tales Franchise Producer Hideo Baba announced today that Tales of Graces F hits PSN on 3/26 with Tales of Xillia coming to PS3 this Summer!

Below are the details, to quote: This is Hideo Baba, producer of the Tales of franchise. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of our fans in North America and Europe.

It's been an absolute pleasure attending various overseas events and interacting with so many of you. I really feel like we've been able to sustain our franchise for 15 years because of such a loyal fanbase. I cannot thank you enough.

Starting March 26th, we'll be digitally distributing Tales of Graces f on PlayStation Network. I strongly urge anyone unfamiliar to the series to give it a shot. An epic adventure of unimaginable proportions awaits you!

We will have two versions of the game available next week; the Standard Edition ($34.99) and Knight Edition ($54.99). The Tales of Graces f: Knight Edition will come bundled with more than 10 DLC items to help new adventurers on their quest including increased stats, health and currency.

In addition, the western release of Tales of Xillia on PS3 is right around the corner - it'll be out this summer!

For the first time in the franchise, you'll be able to select between two main characters...
 

Tales of Voice Recording: A Tales of Xillia Update for PlayStation 3

300°
88w ago - Tales of Xillia North American Producer Ted Tsung has a shared voice recording update today for Tales of Xillia on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello everyone, my name is Ted Tsung and I am the North American Producer for Tales of Xillia for [Register or Login to view links].

I'm happy to announce that we recently completed our voice recording session for the game, an extremely important part of the localization process. It's a huge milestone for us to pass and it means that Tales of Xillia is that much closer to its 2013 release.

Eight hours of voice recording across an eight week span, filled with late nights catching up on emails, proofing, and preparation for the following day. It's a grueling process that's both physically and mentally taxing.

Despite this, it was a fantastic experience, thanks to the support from Cup of Tea, 8-4, and the voice actors. I might be looking through rose-tinted glasses, but you won't find a better group of people.

It's always impressive to see how well voice actors can improvise on the spot. They have very little interaction with each other. The most exposure they'll get with one another is hearing a voice that may be played back for reference....
 

Tales of Xillia Interview: Namco's RPG Series Gets Bigger & Bigger

200°
92w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview today with Namco Bandai on their upcoming Tales of Xillia RPG series video game below.

To quote: Good news for anyone who's been enjoying Namco Bandai's enormous JRPG Tales of Graces F since its launch back in August: its immediate successor, Tales of Xillia, is on its way exclusively to PlayStation 3 in 2013.

We've struggled our way through an hour or so of the original Japanese version, which launched overseas back in 2011, and the 13th entry in the long-running series brings with it a number of significant new innovations for the much-loved franchise.

Duly, we took the time to check in with producer Hideo Baba while in Tokyo last month to find out exactly what fans should expect.

PlayStation Blog: What are the key new additions to the Tales formula since Tales of Graces?

Hideo Baba, Producer: There are many unique features in Xillia but I'd like to emphasise that the battle system is very unique and much improved over the previous title. Also, the portrayal of the game world and its atmosphere has also changed a lot too.

In the previous games the characters were very deformed - they were much shorter - but with Xillia the team has tried to show the characters in realistic proportions...
