Video: RetroGrade Video Walkthrough on PlayStation 3 Unveiled

50°
165w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a RetroGrade video walkthrough on PlayStation 3 today with details below.

To quote: We've featured Retro/Grade several times on the PlayStation.Blog over the past couple of years.

And so, we know a lot about it: it's a shooter, controlled with a guitar controller, in reverse. But before Fantastic Fest 2011, I had never seen someone actually play the thing. As a pretty experienced Rock Band-er, I thought I'd be able to jump in and kick some ass, but the reality is, my gaming brain had never been taxed in quite this way.

So we set up a camera for [Register or Login to view links]' Matt Gilgenbach, clad in a hard hat, to show you how the game actually plays. He actually beats the game in the first 30 seconds, but that's not an accident...





While at Fantastic Fest, Destructoid called it "a blast in the pants." I agree (I think). Retro/Grade will be coming exclusively to PSN in 2012. Hold on to those plastic guitars.
