Video: Tim Schafer on Why You Need to Check Out Grim Fandango

50°
8w ago - Today Sony's Dan Hsu shared a video and Q & A interview with Tim Schafer on why you need to check out Grim Fandango on PS4 and PS Vita below.

To quote: Tim Schafer is never "off." The funnyman game designer and founder of studio house Double Fine Productions is constantly cracking jokes, even when he's trying to be serious.

So when we had a chance to interview him about his upcoming adventure game, Grim Fandango Remastered, we didn't even try to play it straight (for the most part).





The original Grim Fandango originally came out over 16 years ago and became a cult classic. Now it's getting a full, fresh HD makeover for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, due out January 2015. But who should care? Schafer explains:

Q: I'm a 15-year-old gamer, and the original Grim Fandango came out before I was even born. Why should I play your old-man game?

Tim Schafer: When my older brother went away to college, I raided his record collection and randomly pulled out Led Zeppelin III. I had never heard Led Zeppelin before, so when the opening notes of Immigrant Song burrowed into my brain, I was not prepared.

My head exploded and my life was forever changed. What...

8w ago - Capybara Games Co-founder and President Nathan Vella announced today alongside a video trailer that Super Time Force Ultra is headed to PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Nathan here from Capy. It's... TIME... to have a little chat, folks.

It's been while since I've been on the Blog (anyone remember Critter Crunch?), but I couldn't be more stoked to be back. I'm very excited to announce that our time-travelling platformer SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA is headed to PS4 and PS Vita! Here's a little trailer to prove it:





We've been super proud of the response to the game so far- including tons of great reviews from fans & critics, some insane speedruns on YouTube, and even some fancy awards! However, we often got messages from fans that fell into two categories:

1) questioning the plausibility of time travel truly altering the future (we hear you, astrophysicist fans!), and 2) loud pleas to bring the game to PlayStation (we heard you too, loud and clear!).

Concerning the often-misguided exploits of a rag-tag bunch of time travelling lunatics, SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA is a crazy romp through the space-time continuum. Using a Mega-Man-style world select, players can...

8w ago - Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono announced today that Street Fighter V will be console exclusive to PS4 alongside revealing the first PlayStation 4 gameplay video below!

To quote: Hey guys, big news: STREET FIGHTER V is coming and will be console exclusive to the PS4.

What's even bigger news is that our partnership with Sony will result in SFV having cross-platform play, which will in turn unite our Street Fighter fans into one grand player base.

That's right; PS4 owners will now be able to lay the smack down against PC owners and vice-versa, a first for the Street Fighter series!





As I'm sure a lot of you out there are eager to see how the game looks, we've provided some screens below. Please take note that SFV is still early in development.





Here's the logo and the packaging. We felt the bold design really speaks to the bold game play of SFV!

But the hype doesn't stop there as Sony is also bringing USFIV to the PlayStation 4 brought to you by their Third...

8w ago - Yacht Club Games Developer David D'Angelo announced today alongside a video trailer that Shovel Knight digs into PS4, PS3 and PS Vita in 2015.

To quote: Hey Shovelers and Shovelettes! We're Yacht Club Games: a new game studio dedicated to creating fun and challenging gameplay! We aspire to both tug at your heartstrings, and delight you with levity and charm.

We're very proud to announce that our debut title, Shovel Knight, will be tunneling its way to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita next year! We hope everyone will enjoy the game!

Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It's a hot mashup of new and old that may remind you of Mega Man, Castlevania, or Dark Souls! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest.

Shovel Knight has two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and save his lost beloved. He wields a Shovel Blade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly!

But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have...
 

Video: Severed Coming to PS Vita in Spring 2015, Gameplay Trailer

50°
8w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith announced today that Severed is coming to PS Vita in Spring 2015 with a PlayStation Vita gameplay trailer below.

To quote: Well it is an exciting month, with all the work we've put into our newest game Severed, and the announcement that we'll be launching on the PS Vita this Spring. But let me not get ahead of myself.

The PlayStation community has been unbelievably supportive since we first released the original Guacamelee!, so it was a no brainer to bring Severed to the same fans. The Vita is really a great fit for Severed as the game feels very natural there, taking full advantage of both the D-pad and multi touch screen. We can't wait for Vita owners to try it out!





At this point you're probably wondering "What the heck is Severed?"

In Severed you take control of a one-armed heroine wielding a living sword. Crazy, eh? You'll be using touch based mechanics to employ offensive and defensive techniques against a variety of enemies.

In Severed you gain abilities by wearing Totems - armor pieces that are created from the remains of defeated Bosses. These abilities, such as Sunder, can be used both in combat to destroy enemy defenses and in exploration to...
