Video: Sony Announces EscapeVektor Launches on PS Vita Tuesday

66w ago - Nnooo Creative Director Nic Watt has announced today on Sony's blog alongside a video trailer that EscapeVektor launches on the PS Vita handheld console this Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: We're happy to bring you information about escapeVektor, a new game coming to PlayStation Vita from Australian independent developer Nnooo.

Vektor is trapped inside your CPU and needs your help to escape! Each node (level) consists of a series of interconnected lines which form cells. These are claimed as Vektor moves along them.

Claiming all of the cells in a node unlocks the exit to the next node, bringing Vektor closer to his escape. Watch out because the CPU sets up obstacles and sends out its army to destroy him.

There are four main abilities to unlock and use in escapeVektor.

Detonate

This ability allows you to destroy enemies which get too close. If you can escape a node without detonating you'll earn a star! Getting stars on all the nodes is going to be tricky.

Boost

Boost allows you to travel much faster than normal for short periods of time.

Super Boost

This is a much faster version of boost which drains boost energy even quicker!!

Atlus: Download Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 on PSN Tuesday

67w ago - Atlus Editor Nich Maragos has invited fans to download Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 on PSN this coming Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: A lot of unusual things go on here at ATLUS, and as a publisher known for delivering great JRPG content, Demon's Souls represented something unique even for us: runaway mainstream success.

In the years since its release, Demon's Souls went far above and beyond our usual humble offerings, partly because it's such a special game. It's a Japanese-developed RPG, made by From Software, but it has a distinctly Western look and feel in the weight of its movements and the ruthlessness of its enemies and environments.

It's a single-player title, but it has a strong online component unlike anything that came before it, where you can summon other players as friendly ghosts to give you a hand, or be invaded by hostile marauders without warning.

Its unsparing difficulty seemed to mark it as destined to be appreciated only by a select few, yet it's been universally lauded (and awarded Game of the Year by a few, including GameSpot) and remains our highest-selling title ever.

As a thank you to the fans who have supported it this far and kept the servers burning, we're excited to announce that Demon's Souls will...

Video: Flex Your Lexicon in Page Chronica, Out Tuesday on PSN

50°
72w ago - Red Hare Studios Producer Wee Lit Koh has invited fans to flex their Lexicon in Page Chronica, which is out Tuesday on PSN with a video trailer below.

To quote: During the making of our game Page Chronica, a common question has been "Is this an edutainment game?" Whenever we hear that word, our bodies cringe and we adamantly deny the claim.

In the gaming industry, the term conjures memories of boring school educational games that would alienate the majority of our console gamers. So for a long period of time, we would refuse to admit that our game is such a thing.

However, we eventually lightened up to the notion. That is not to say that we have fully accepted the classification, but it is more of a matter of tweaking our perspectives. So to all the edutainment-haters out there, we're here to convince you to withhold judgment and give Page Chronica a try.

Page Chronica is not your average side-scrolling action-platformer. It is an action-oriented word-puzzle game that combines elements of action-platformers with the forming of words. Capture letters and form words of various lengths and complexity to gain the power to unleash a variety of Spells and Attacks. The stronger the words formed, the more powerful you will be.
