3w ago - Messhof LLC Co-founder Kristy Norindr confirmed today that Nidhogg is coming to PS Vita with Cross-Buy, Online Play, and more details below.

To quote: We are super stoked to announce that [Register or Login to view links] is coming to PS Vita, and it will be released simultaneously with the PS4 version!

It will be cross-buy, so if you grab one you'll get both the PS4 and PS Vita versions. How dope is that?!

If you haven't heard of Nidhogg yet, thats cool. Its been around the PC game world for a while, and at super awesome parties around the world. Its a two player fencing/fighting game where the ultimate goal is to get eaten by a massive pink dragon: the Nidhogg.

Nidhogg is pretty much the ultimate party game, but you can also practice in single player mode against an AI opponent or play with friends or randos online. When you inevitably have a Nidhogg party, there's a built in tournament mode for 3-8 players. We had some crazy [Register or Login to view links] tournaments at EVO.

You can also toggle a bunch of different variants on and off, or combine them for endless weirdness (baby mode + spine swords?).

The soundtrack consists...
 

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer by Playdek Coming to PS Vita

3w ago - Playdek Community Manager Shyla Schofield announced today that Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer is coming to PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Greetings, everyone! This is Shyla, Playdek's Community Manager, and I'm here to share some exciting news with you all.

Currently our team is busy working on bringing our award-winning game Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer to PS Vita! But what is Ascension, and what exactly is a "deck-building" game?

To put it simply, a deck-building game is a game where players take turns adding cards to their own playable decks. Players start with identical cards in their decks which places each player on an even playing field. In Ascension, you and your opponent will start with 10 cards in your deck and will use these decks to draw cards to create your hand.

By playing your cards, you're given either a special ability to use during your turn such as adding more cards to your hand, or the cards may generate Runes or Power which allow you to purchase or defeat cards in the Center Deck.

Purchasing cards with Runes will usually provide you with a special ability of some sort that you can use to aid you in your game, while defeating a card with Power removes the card from the game and will award you with Honor Points which...

3w ago - Reaper Creative Director Luc Bernard introduces Online Multiplayer Desert Ashes for PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Hey, fellow PS Vita and future [Register or Login to view links] owners. Luc Bernard here again, you may remember me close to E3 when I announced Reaper.

Now I'm here to announce a new title, which will be coming out this fall. The game is called Desert Ashes. It's a free-to-play, turn-based strategy with local and online multiplayer for PlayStation TV and PS Vita.

Let's first go through what will be available at launch:

• 3 single player campaigns
• Online PvPmultiplayer
• Local PvP multiplayer on PS TV

Now, a bit of information on the online multiplayer (the local is pretty straightforward - sit on the couch with your friend and play on your PlayStation TV). Now for the online multiplayer, once you've taken your turn you don't have to wait for your opponent to make his move if you're too busy doing other things.

For example, there are different timers you can set before you can declare victory on your opponent if they take too long. There will be 5 minutes, 20 minutes, 8 hours, and 24 hours. Also with the online multiplayer you can play on your Vita while you're out,...
 

Sony Details How the World Cup Influenced FIFA 15 on PS4

3w ago - Sony Content Producer Tom Wallis detailed how the World Cup influenced FIFA 15 on PS4 today for PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: "We picked the winner of the Brazil World Cup with our simulation."

It's a lofty claim to make, but one that Nick Channon, Senior Producer on [Register or Login to view links], doesn't make lightly.

"We do a simulation every year and we actually, before the tournament, picked Germany. I'm not sure too many people agreed with us. A lot of people were looking at Argentina or Brazil as the favorites."

When talking to Nick backstage at Gamescom this year, talk inevitably kept returning to this summer's footballing extravaganza over in Brazil and perhaps unsurprisingly, it becomes clear that the tournament had an impact on how the final game is turning out.

One area in particular - goalkeepers - came in for special attention as the tournament wound to its conclusion.

"It felt for a lot of the World Cup that the standout position was the goalkeeper," explains Nick.

"Tim Howard from the USA had the record for the most saves in a game. That was something we didn't see coming - just how the World Cup became a story of the...
