179w ago - Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video today from E3 2010 previewing Two Worlds II for Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Fans of epic open-world RPGs like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3 will want to keep their eyes peeled for Two Worlds II, an upcoming fantasy RPG that's headed to the PS3 this fall from developer Reality Pump.
I sat in on a demonstration at E3 to learn more about the game, but before I start yammering away, check out the trailer below to get a sense of the universe and visual style.
Set in a massive open world teeming with animal life, Two Worlds II is an RPG that's intensely focused on player freedom. You won't find rigid character classes like "Barbarian" or "Thief."
Instead, you'll build a custom class by assigning skill points across a wide range of talents: assassination, melee combat, trade, lockpicking, and magic to name just a few. Want to combine the spell-casting acumen of a Wizard with the brute melee force of a Warrior? No problem: just assign your skill and stat points accordingly.
You use the directional pad to swap quickly between your gear loadouts, so you could soften...
I didn't know much of the Edgar Wright-directed, Michael Cera-starring movie hitting later this summer. I had never read any of the comics by Bryan Lee O'Malley (though I'm rectifying that now).
All I know is, I played a game that took me back to my gaming childhood: 8-bit beat'em ups with brightly colored sprites, old-school music, and couch co-op.
The key thing to note: Scott Pilgrim vs The World is debuting exclusively on PlayStation Network, and that you'll be playing it in just about a month: August 10th.
You'll be seeing a lot more about Scott Pilgrim vs The World here on the PlayStation.Blog in the coming weeks, including updates from Comic-Con and a post directly from Anamanaguchi, the famed chiptune band who behind the game's sountrack.

179w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a PS3 demo video from E3 2010 showcasing Spec Ops: The Line for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: In 2K Games' upcoming PS3 third-person action game Spec Ops: The Line, catastrophic sandstorms have assaulted Dubai and left the City of Gold's famous gravity-defying skyscrapers entombed under mountains of choking, swirling sand.
I sat in on a demonstration of Spec Ops: The Line at the 2010 E3 Expo, and learned more about the game's improvisational combat and tense atmosphere, as well as the difficult decisions you'll face as a Delta Force squad leader.
The story finds inspiration in the film Apocalypse Now. As Delta Force Captain Martin Walker, your team ventures into the Dubai wastes to track down a distress signal from Colonel John Konrad, who went AWOL following the sandstorms.
The fate of Col. Konrad and his men will be revealed as you play, but if you've seen Apocalypse Now, you might have some clues about the dark territory this tale will explore.
179w ago - Sony PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen is here with this weeks Digital Comics Store PSP and PSPgo update today, as follows:
Hi Everyone- Here's this week's Digital Comics update. This week was a big one, with over 54 new Comics. Here are some highlights broken out by publishers.
DC- We have issue 3 of Frank Miller's Batman: Year One, and more of the amazing DMZ series.
We also have two special one-shot crossover issues from the disturbed mind of Warren Ellis - Planetary/Authority: Ruling the World, where Ellis almost brings the two teams together to fight a giant octopus-like monster; and Planetary/JLA: Terra Occulta in which DC and Wildstorm universes clash in an alternate reality.
Finally, DC is offering another free comic from their Zuda imprint. The Night Owls #1 is a light hearted strip set in 1920's New York following a group of detectives who solve supernatural crimes.
Marvel brings us another splash of brains with the start of the five issue Marvel Zombies 2, plus we see more Black Panther and Astonishing Tales.
