85w ago - Writer and Designer Jake Rodkin at Telltale Games has confirmed today that The Walking Dead is now available on PlayStation Network and shared a Choice Matters video below.
To quote: Hey everyone! Hoping you're all enjoying the zombified fruits of our labor now that the first episode of The Walking Dead arrived just yesterday on PlayStation Network.
We're insanely busy already getting the next episode ready for all of you, but I wanted to pass along this sneak peek at a video that will help explain why all of the choices you make in the first episode will matter from episode to episode, and also all season long.
Sit back and watch as my good friend Harrison Pink explains how different each outcome can be for each individual player throughout the season.
There are more juicy The Walking Dead details to come, so stay tuned here and look (listen?) for me later this week on the Official PlayStation Blogcast!
On behalf of the whole team here at Telltale Games, thanks again for all of your support, and we hope you enjoy the first episode!
85w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has posted up the 4/24 video edition of Pulse today, which features Mortal Kombat for PS Vita and The Walking Dead Game.
To quote: With April coming to a close, this edition of Pulse highlights several must-have titles that are newly available (The Walking Dead) and coming soon (Mortal Kombat for PS Vita).
PS Vita owners should check out StarDrone Extreme, which combines dazzling pinball-like physics in a interstellar environment for some nicely addictive game play.
Also, preview Mortal Kombat for PS Vita before it arrives next week featuring the Challenge Tower II mode with 50+ PS Vita-exclusive missions and new touchscreen fatalities.
Up for some zombie bashing? With the second season of The Walking Dead television series now complete, it's a long wait until season three kicks off. But starting today, Telltale Games begins to release the first of five episodes of the new The Walking Dead game. Get a glimpse of the first episode in our video preview.
For PlayStation Plus subscribers, we've got a look at the two multiplayer modes of the exclusive private beta of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
85w ago - Telltale Games Writer and Designer Jake Rodkin has announced today that The Walking Dead video game series will be lurching on PSN Tuesday with pre-purchase details below.
To quote: I'm Jake from Telltale Games and I'm clawing my way to bring you up to speed with our latest game series.
While some of our previous games like Back to the Future: The Game have been pretty light-hearted, we couldn't have gone darker than our next project, a five part episodic series based on Robert Kirkman's Eisner award-winning comic book series, The Walking Dead.
First, the good news: The first episode of The Walking Dead, 'A New Day,' will arrive on PSN this Tuesday, April 24th. Each episode will cost $4.99 on the PlayStation Store, and you'll be able to pre-purchase the entire five-episode season for $19.99 to save $4.99 off of the total season price and nab an exclusive PS3 premium theme (head to the bottom of the post for more details).
Not only is The Walking Dead game darker and more violent than anything the studio has done before, but it also provides a very different gameplay experience compared to our previous games.
One major way that the game differs from previous...
86w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with some video footage of the Deadmau5 SoundShapes stage for PS Vita below.
To quote: It's no secret that electronica artist deadmau5 signed on with Toronto-based Queasy Games to collaborate on the upcoming PS Vita musical platformer Sound Shapes.
But last week we finally tasted the succulent fruits of that creative collaboration.
During a media showcase in New York City, Sound Shapes Producer Jason deGroot kindly demonstrated a new set of levels (a "Record" in the game's lingo) that featured audio effects provided by the mousey maestro and pixelicious art courtesy of indie developer Pixel Jam.
You can analyze the results for yourself below - headphones recommended!
It's worth noting that deadmau5's album tracks, such as the pop cut "Ghosts 'n Stuff," won't be appearing in Sound Shapes. And that's by design: the game's interactive soundtrack synthesizes with your platforming progress, making each "performance" a unique arrangement.
But deadmau5's sounds, loops, and rhythms are showcased in a dedicated set of levels. Better yet, his library will be available when it comes time to construct custom...
91w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has shared a virtual tour of Tokyo this weekend through the eyes of Yakuza: Dead Souls on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Many people dream of visiting Tokyo and a few lucky ones actually get to go. If the long flights, heavy suitcases and language barriers just aren't in the cards for you, don't fret.
You can still see some actual real-life Tokyo sights, restaurants, amusements and more in Yakuza: Dead Souls - which is out now on PS3, by the way.
Just like any good tourist guidebook, here's a map of Kamurocho (a city inspired by the famous red light district in Tokyo), with a numbered list of restaurants, advertising and more that are actually real-life things. We've also added the location of the first three zombie bosses*. We're just nice like that.
*The location of these items doesn't match those that can be found in real-life.
Also, we must warn you: there are no zombies in the real Tokyo - at least, as far as we know - but there are many, many more of them in Yakuza: Dead Souls than we've shown on this map. We'll let you find them all (or let them find you first)!
2. If you'd prefer to eat at home or in your hotel room while watching strange Japanese TV shows, you could buy a pack of...
