MLB 09 The Show: New Roster Vault Feature for PS3 Unveiled

50°
289w ago - Producer Jason Villa discusses a new feature to look out for in MLB 09 The Show for PS3, namely the Roster Vault as follows:

Following in the footsteps of the My Slider feature, we've put more control in the user's hands. Community shared content leverages the creativity of user's like you.

And if you're one of the users that love to customize rosters and share with others, you know how difficult it's been in the past to relay your settings to other users. The Roster Vault in MLB 09 The Show solves that problem. The Roster Vault allows you to make all your roster changes (some new to this year), save them off, and upload them for others to download and use.

Here's how to upload a Roster to the Roster Vault:

1. Take any roster (on disc or a weekly Live Roster update)

2. Make any changes you'd like to the roster and players within. This could be player names, attributes, jersey numbers, accessories, handedness, etc...

3. Save the Roster to your hard drive

4. Connect online with MLB 09, via SportsConnect, select the Roster Vault feature from the Community section.

5. Select Upload from the Roster Vault options

6. Select one of the Rosters from your hard drive to upload

7. Name...

50°
290w ago - If you have some extra money left in your gaming budget, you might want to consider buying a copy of the next issue of Game Informer. It takes an in-depth look into one of the most anticipated PS3 titles so far: God of War 3.

The mag's March issue will include exclusive info, art, and screenshots of the final installment of the brutal series. There's also some features on games like Resident Evil 5, Brütal Legend, and GTA 4: The Lost and Damned.

Aside from the meaty stuff found in its pages, the mag's also got a sweet cover showing Kratos being his usual bad-ass self.

Check out how he grabs onto the cyclops' eyelid in the cover shot to the right. Man, that's gotta hurt.
 

Velvet Assassin Screenshots Feature 'Normal Woman'

50°
296w ago - In a new glimpse at the star of the upcoming Velvet Assassin, developer Replay Studios stresses that Violette Summer is no Lara Croft or similarly disproportionate game babe.

A press release says the developers didn't aim to sensationalize the war against the Nazis.

"An integral part of that mission was to provide players with an intriguing view of the war by portraying a strong, yet normal (emphasis theirs) woman, not only in physique - but also in the reality of her abilities."

The stealth action game is inspired by the true story of Violette Szabo, a woman who joined the allied forces as a spy after her husband was killed in battle. Szabo was captured, tortured and killed during her second mission.

Violent Assassin sees Summer recalling her own story, of sneaking behind enemy lines to help defeat the Nazis, while comatose in a hospital. The entire game is a flashback, and players can use morphine to slow down Summer's dreams when the situation calls for it.

Today we got a few renderings of Summer's various outfits. We're told that all of Summer's possessions have a meaning and a use, hence the need for different clothing. The one above is her standard aviator outfit, and below is her night dress, which is suddenly donned when Summer uses morphine. I guess...
 

Chinatown Wars to Feature Almost the Entire Map from GTA IV

50°
302w ago - A Spanish magazine recently got their hands on Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS and discussed map details.

It appears as though the game will feature a similar map as GTA IV, though without Alderney.

To quote: Even though many people believed that Chinatown Wars would develop only in the Chinese neighborhood the game uses nearly the whole map that appears in GTA IV.

The districts that appear are: Dukes (Queens), Bohan (Bronx), Broker (Brooklyn) and Algonquin (Manhattan).

The only neighborhood from GTA IV that doesn't appear is Alderney (Jersey City).
