31w ago - Fatal Frame Series Director Makoto Shibata announced today on Sony's blog that Fatal Frame 2 hits PSN Tuesday alongside some details on the video game below, as follows:
Following yesterday's restrospective on the original PS2 Classic Fatal Frame, series director Makoto Shibata returns today to talk about the development of Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly, which comes to PSN next Tuesday.
The Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly project started relatively soon after the first project concluded. Since we received lots of feedback that players got too scared to complete the game, we shifted our attention to making the storyline more interesting, to encourage such players to overcome the scariness in wanting to see the end of the story.
The storyline is based on a dream I had after the initial project concluded. Thinking back about it, I recall it being a complete dream in many ways. The dream was scary, magical and traumatic, and it had a perfect plot - even with a title and a structured ending. Thus, it was simply a case of how to interpret the dream and recreate it as a game.
In a psychic horror scenario, it is normal for ghosts and spirits to not...
32w ago - Writer and Director Swery made available a video today announcing that Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut hits PS3 on April 30th, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: The development of Deadly Premonition is sort of like finishing a full-length marathon...several times over. In other words, Deadly Premonition is my hobby, my business, my study, and my motivation in life - it's an all-encompassing journey and adventure.
Especially to me, it has been a very vital tool to connect with people around the world. It is a feeling that I equate with romance or marriage; like somebody I love dearly, or like a kid who will never listen to his parents.
But I don't have any kids though. Haha! It has been a wonderful journey, and one that I hope will continue to always live on.
I have always been surprised and humbled by the feedback that fans and press have given Deadly Premonition, and by the adornment and cult following that it has garnered. Personally, I would like to think that Deadly Premonition has received the status that it has because there weren't really any games out at the time that were quite like it.
Fans who enjoyed the original will look to seek out another game that will provide them with a similar level of interest and excitement, but perhaps...
32w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson is here with the first video below showcasing the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie which hits theaters in 2015.
To quote: One of the biggest questions we've gotten in the last few years is "When are you going to make a Ratchet & Clank movie?" The truth is, we've wanted to do a movie for a long time!
Ratchet & Clank's action, humor and galaxy-spanning adventures have really been the basis for a fantastic game series, and we think it'd translate perfectly to the big screen.
We've been looking for the right partner to help us bring a Ratchet & Clank movie to life, and we're thrilled to announce that Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are currently in production on Ratchet & Clank's first cinematic adventure.
Insomniac is honored to play a hands-on role with the film's production, screenplay, character development, and animation consulting. Furthermore, our own Ratchet & Clank writer, T.J. Fixman, who has written all of the recent Ratchet & Clank games, is writing the script for the film as well.
33w ago - Digital Leisure Supervising Producer Paul Gold has posted up a video today spotlighting Mad Dog 2: The Lost Gold announcing it will hit PlayStation Network this Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: Following the successful launch this January of arcade classic Mad Dog McCree, gamers have been asking us "Where's Mad Dog 2 already?!"
Well, we listened, and now I'm happy to say that you'll be searching for 'The Lost Gold' this Tuesday with the release of Mad Dog 2 on PSN. We once again went back to the original video and gave it a fresh HD upgrade for this PlayStation Move release.
So pick a guide and get ready to take down the ruthless outlaw Mad Dog McCree once and for all!
This release includes a bunch of extra features, much like its predecessor Mad Dog McCree. We bumped up the original video quality, and remastered it in 720p. We created a fresh new interface to give the game a true western feel.
We've added all new difficulty modes, which will give even the fastest quickdraw a run for their money in their quest to take out Mad Dog - and post their high scores to the worldwide Leaderboards.
Now this might not be the toughest shooter you've played through recently,...
