129w ago - Today Djamil Kemal at Lexis Numerique has shared a video on Amy, an evolved survival horror video game that is hitting PSN this summer.
To quote: If you're into new survival-horror experiences, this post is for you! After recently releasing Red Johnson's Chronicles on PSN, we're excited to be publishing Amy on PSN later in 2011.
Amy is the upcoming game from Paul Cuisset, who may be a familiar name for some of you; In the early 90s Paul created Flashback, a classic game that is credited today as a great source of inspiration by respected game designers.
With Amy, we're now bringing Paul's innovative concepts to PS3 owners with a new development philosophy that bridges the gap between innovative indie PSN games and very ambitious Blu-ray titles.
The story begins on a rainy December day in 2034. Global warming is in full swing, spreading diseases and natural disasters all around the world. You play as Lana, a character who regains consciousness following a comet impact in the small town of Silver City.
Upon awakening, you discover that Silver City has descended into chaos. Violence, fury, rage, wreckage and death: the world you knew has been torn to Hell.

175w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced today alongside a video that Valkyria Chronicles II is coming to PSP and PSPgo later this summer.
To quote: Valkyria Chronicles is one of those hidden gems from the early-ish days of the PS3; a strategy-RPG with third-person shooter controls and stunning anime styling. If you're into any of those genres (or World War II, for that matter), I highly recommend you procure a copy.
While Valkyria Chronicles didn't top the sales charts, it inspired intense fandom among many who played it (be prepared to open your wallet wide if you want to get ahold of the detailed Valkyria figurines coming out of Japan).
Like many of these fans, I'm particularly excited about the prospect of carrying the game's sequel with me for most of the 2nd half of this year.
So I took the short trip to Sega's US HQ to play an English build of Valkyria Chronicles 2 for PSP, and report back to you. VC2 may be shrunk down to portability, but there are significant advancements in this sequel, including multiplayer.
We'll have more details on Valkyria Chronicles II soon.
