88w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has unveiled today that Way of the Samurai 4 is coming exclusively to the PS3 entertainment system with details below.
To quote: Say WotS?! You heard me right! Spike and Acquire's Way of the Samurai 4 is confirmed for release in North America on the PS3, and we at XSEED Games are pleased to be bringing it to you fully uncut and uncensored.
Torture chambers, naughty midnight missions in the dark and all the brutal slaughtering you can handle await in this riveting and 100% historically accurate (shhhh!) sandbox-style samurai period drama.
Admiral Perry has just opened Japan's borders to the British, allowing for a long-overdue globalization process to begin.
Unfortunately, one of the open ports happens to be a modest Japanese burg called Amihama, where a resistance group known as the "Disciples of Prajna" have taken up arms against the arriving foreigners and all who support them.
As a lone samurai who's just arrived amidst the chaos, it's up to you whether you want to join forces with the Prajna resistance, fight alongside the foreigners in the name of progress or take your stance somewhere between the two by supporting the local government's attempts to quell the violence (through any means possible).
90w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has announced that Sumioni: Demon Arts will be inking its way to PlayStation Vita today, with details below as follows:
Well, the day has finally come. We've talked about the many ways to play Sumioni: Demon Arts and gone into great detail on how the game perfectly complements the PS Vita's many unique features, but now it's time to see for yourself just how addictive it truly is.
Sumioni: Demon Arts is an exclusive PS Vita action platformer from Acquire and XSEED Games that taps into PS Vita's powerful touchscreen. Using your finger, you'll be able to draw bridges to cross dangerous obstacles, summon thunderclouds or sacred lions to attack enemies, and much, much more.
Sumioni will be available to download for $19.99 later today on PlayStation Store. Or, if you're feeling lucky, listen to the latest PlayStation Blogcast now and submit a user tip or user question, then tune in later this week to see if you won a free download code for the game.
Still not convinced? Check out the game's official North American Web site for gameplay descriptions, screenshots, videos, music, wallpapers and more.
This is our first foray into the wonderful world...
97w ago - Laughing Jackal Community Manager Ross Brierley has shared a video preview today announcing that Hungry Giraffe is eating its way onto PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: I'm here to talk to you about our latest PlayStation minis game, Hungry Giraffe, which will be released tomorrow, exclusively and FREE for PlayStation Plus users.
Hungry Giraffe will then go on general release on the 15th of February for just £2.49/€3.49.
Hungry Giraffe is our first foray into the endless climbing genre and is based on the experiences* of one particular giraffe who - bored of the foliage of the acacia tree - decided to stretch out his neck to reach the burgers floating in the sky. Using the calories from the burgers to make his neck even longer, he moved from burger to french fries, taco to sandwich, on a desperate quest to stuff his face.
Of course our giraffe friend had to be wary of several hazards floating in the sky. After all, an anvil to the head seldom does anyone any good and as for poison, well, would you want clean up when a 1200 kg giraffe loses its lunch? Unprescribed drugs are also best avoided, as human medicine tends to have strange hallucinogenic properties when taken by giraffes.

98w ago - Today Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is officially heading to the PSP.
To quote: It's been years since the last Growlanser game, dearest members of the Blog of PlayStation (Growlanser: Heritage of War, for those of you playing "PlayStation Blog: The At-Home Edition," was released for PS2 back in 2007).
Even before that, hardcore RPG fans have been clamoring for the fourth entry, one of their favorites in the series, to make its way to North America. Now, there are always factors for games released in Japan to either never come or come much, much later to US shores. This was one of those cases where hope seemed quite faint.
Just this past week, those hopes were given a prescription-strength injection of horse steroids as Atlus (that's us) officially announced Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, the enhanced PSP version of the long-beloved and much-requested fourth chapter in the popular series of RPGs, for release this summer in North America.
Let's tune out all those exclamations of shock that ATLUS is releasing a PSP game in 2012 (because it isn't going to be the only one) and get to the heart of the matter: telling you everything you need...
