122w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO 2K update today, with details on both Tekken Hybrid and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue as follows:
I spent the weekend at the EVO Championship Series, a mecca for fighting-game competitors and home to the biggest Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, Mortal Kombat tournaments in the world.
This year, I'm told, EVO attendance spiked sharply to nearly 8,000 attendees – enough to strain the confines of the biggest ballroom in one of Las Vegas's larger resort hotels.
With EVO's popularity soaring in recent years, it's become common to see legendary figures in fighting game design prowling the demo stations, studying player reactions and answering questions.
At EVO I caught up with Katsuhiro Harada, the outgoing game director for Tekken since its inception on the PSone. I particularly wanted to discuss this November's PS3-exclusive Tekken Hybrid, the upcoming Blu-ray compilation that will include CG film Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D, an enhanced version of the seminal PS2 fighter Tekken Tag Tournament, and an appetizer in the form of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue.

133w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman shared a PS3 Multiplayer report today alongside a fresh Resistance 3: Campaign Tour video available below.
To quote: Earth's cities lie silent. Mankind teeters on the brink of extinction. The Chimera have won. Six years after the Chimera invaded in Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 3 depicts a bleak world where the survivors have laid down their weapons and curled into seclusion to await the inevitable.
One such survivor is Joseph Capelli, last seen (spoiler!) executing series frontman Nathan Hale at the conclusion of Resistance 2. With Resistance 3's narrative focus shifting from military might to hometown heroism, the gaunt-looking Capelli stands in stark contrast to Resistance 2's square-jawed super soldier.
Having abandoned the fight to be with his wife and child, Capelli holes up in rural Oklahoma to evade Chimeran raiders and scavenge for ever-dwindling supplies.
A chance visit by xenobiologist Dr. Fyodor Malikov reveals a desperate plan to destroy the Chimera in New York City, sparking a road trip through an American heartland warped by the Chimera's corrosive influence.
The original Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced and accessible RTS, with a quaint, anime-inspired visual style in which players send their cute armies into battle, upgrade their mushroom bases, improve their weaponry and fight skirmishes in close-quarter maps.
Mushroom Wars Online introduces several expansions to these features, the most exciting being the ability to spread their fungal domination into the online realm with four-player online multiplayer support.
Along with the addition of online multiplayer support, Mushroom Wars Online introduces a number of new features to the original title, including local multiplayer support for up to four players. Players can enjoy custom matches against online friends for training and entertainment, or watch others battle from the sidelines to hone their strategic skills....
But first: what is an EX Burst? EX Burst is equivalent of a super move in a game like Street Fighter. Each character has a special move which you'll recognize from their original game. During the EX burst, you'll have to input several button cues but each is customized for each unique character.
For example, Tifa's EX Burst features the same slot reels for her Limit Break in Final Fantasy VII. For Tidus, you'd have to align the cursor in the target zone like his Overdrive attack in Final Fantasy X.
For Squall, you'll have to pull the trigger just like in Final Fantasy XIII. The more successful you are with the button cues, the more devastating the attack.
The EX system is actually more than a special move because, during battle, you'll have to fill up a meter called the EX gauge. Once...
