Dead Space 3 Interview: Sci-fi Survival Horror Multiplayer Make-over

200°
76w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared a Dead Space 3 interview with fans today announcing that the Sci-fi Survival Horror Multiplayer game is getting a make-over.

Below are the details, to quote: Next February sees the release of the third main entry in EA's critically lauded sci-fi survival horror series, Dead Space.

While the first two games followed very similar templates, the latest installment really mixes things up by introducing full co-op play to the main campaign.

The optional drop-in, drop-out multiplayer lets a second player join in the story as new character Sergeant John Carver. While the game is fully playable as a solo experience, if you play with friend you'll have an expanded story and get to experience a number of extra sequences and set-pieces.

We sat down with the game's producer Steve Papoutsis to find out how - and why - developer Visceral Games has implemented this new system and what fans of the series can expect from reluctant hero Isaac Clarke's latest adventure.

81w ago - SCEE Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview today with Capcom discussing their new Resident Evil 6 video game for the PS3 entertainment system.

Below are the details, to quote: It's a big week for gaming! The release of a new mainline Resident Evil game is one of those events where gamers the world over prepare to bunk off school/work and devote their every waking hour to the noble pursuit of zombie slaughter.

The sequel to 2009's Africa-set Resident Evil 5 is an absolute beast of a game, offering one of the largest single player campaigns in recent memory.

Ahead of its global release today, we caught up with executive producer Kobayashi-san, director Sasaki-san and producer Hirabayashi-san at Tokyo Game Show, to find out how Capcom went about creating such a mammoth title.

Fred Dutton, PlayStation.Blog Europe Manager: What makes Resident Evil 6 stand out from its predecessors?

Sasaki: I think it's the human drama that we really wanted to convey. The script is just so packed with stuff. Trying to blend everything from the script with the game design and make that come together was really a challenge. What we tried while writing the script was to incorporate the level design and the design of the game itself so they blended seamlessly...

81w ago - Today Writer Gary Whitta has confirmed that The Walking Dead: Episode 4 - Around Every Corner is coming soon alongside a new video trailer and screens below.

To quote: Congratulations. You've made it. You've survived. This far.

If you're reading this blog, that means you've probably already played the first three installments of Telltale Games' episodic video game adaptation of Robert Kirkman's never-ending zombie epic The Walking Dead. And you've been put through an emotional meat grinder unparalleled in interactive storytelling.

You've had to deal not just with the dead rising up, but with the living brought low as the scattered and desperate survivors of the zombie apocalypse have struggled to hold onto their humanity under impossible pressure.

You've seen murder, cannibalism, fear, paranoia, insanity, betrayal, and even the tragic death of an innocent child. And all I can say to you after all that is, I'm sorry. Because it's about to get worse. Much worse.

At the close of Episode 3, Lee Everett and his fellow survivors were just about to arrive by train in Savannah, where Kenny, distraught after the recent loss of his wife and son, has pinned all his hopes on finding a boat that can carry the group to safety.
 

Video: Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit Out on PSN Today

50°
82w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has shared a video announcing that Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is out on PSN today!

Below are the details, to quote: Have you heard about Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit? If not, you are truly missing out on a totally amazing, incredibly ridiculous, and completely hilarious adventure. I am not making that up. You legit need this game in your life.

Hell Yeah! puts you in control of Ash, a devil rabbit and the prince of Hell. As so many celebrities are these days, Ash is the victim of a vicious smear campaign as somebody posts scandalous bath-time images of him up on the 'Hell-ternet'. This is a really good way to piss off the prince of Hell.

Ash gets so pissed off, in fact, that he wants to make sure that everyone who saw the photos dies. It's a totally reasonable, logical response, right?

This is where you help Ash achieve his goal to destroy all of the monsters of Hell who have seen him in all his naked and embarrassing glory. And that turns out to be a whole lot of fun.

Although you start the game with nothing, Ash very quickly starts accruing some awesome gadgetry to help with the monster destruction. It all starts with the painful looking "Jet-pack Driller", which does exactly what it sounds like....
