Crash Commando for PlayStation 3 Coming Soon to PSN!

50°
298w ago - EPOS Game Studios CEO Olof Gustafsson shared the following today via PS Blog:

Hi all! This is Olof Gustafsson and Magnus Isaksson from EPOS Game Studios writing our first entry on the Blog, and we are going to introduce you all to Crash Commando for PS3, available soon on PlayStation Network!

It is a side-scrolling shooter that we think can and will satisfy any urge of frag-fests during Xmas and the cold months thereafter – killing friends and strangers in comic violence on PSN.

As this is the first game from us as a company – we know most of you have never heard about EPOS at all before. EPOS Game Studios is a small studio located in Sweden with a 5-man production team – with main occupations being split up between 2 programmers, 2 artists and a sound guy.

The idea:

The initial idea for Crash Commando was inspired by a lot of different titles over the last two decades. One game that springs to mind is JETPAC on the old Commodore VIC-20. The challenge was to create a fun game that clearly flirts with the retro genre, giving the players the opportunity to play in teams or against each other in real-time, incorporating the depth of a modern game while maintaining the retro core values.

Review: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 for PlayStation 2

300°
298w ago - If you're an RPG fan, you can't help but admit that Atlus is on a serious roll when it comes to fantastic gaming experiences on the PlayStation 2.

Last year, Atlus released Persona 3, which was an excellent RPG revolving around high school students, monsters known as Shadows and a mysterious time of day known as the "Dark Hour." It was an incredibly deep title, thanks to the mix of social interactions and dungeon crawling, and was one of the better games released last year.

Then, further improving on Persona 3, Atlus released Persona 3: FES earlier this year, a director's cut which expanded and improved the gameplay of its predecessor. There was no way that Atlus could outdo itself, right? I'm glad to say that this assumption has been proven wrong in spectacular fashion.




Somehow, Atlus has managed to take just about every single lesson that it's learned from these two titles and implement them into its latest RPG, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, which is truly an RPG classic in the making.

Eschewing the busy city life from the previous Persona games, Persona 4 is set within the sleepy countryside town of Inaba, where the protagonist of the game is sent to live with his uncle (a detective in the local police force) and his young cousin for a year....
 

God of War 3 for PlayStation 3 Details Unveiled!

100°
298w ago - Was recently sent a pretty detailed run down of what to expect from God of War 3... This is an actual build of the game and not the trailer we're all set to see at the VGA's.

I am told that it will only be a very short glimpse of what the game is going to offer and will probably be further edited down to about 20 seconds if that. He thinks it could be so edited that if you blink you might miss it... 10 seconds, even.

Sadly, I'm not able to go into as much detail here. It sucks, I know. But, at the request of the man in question and in hopes of building a better relationship with him in the future I will honor that request.

What I can talk about is this:

Graphically it is going to set a new standard. Easily eclipsing the detail in Gears of War 2 and uncharted... God of War 3 is set to offer up the most cinematic experiences ever! He was over the moon about how good it looked... he said there is nothing that comes remotely close. "The detail is crafted with highest of care and the animations sell the experience like nothing you've ever seen".

He was told that the game will be 1080P and 60FPS... He then said it was obvious the footage he seen wasn't, though. So, if they're shooting for 1080P and 60fps and haven't hit it yet that's a good thing... since the game already...
 

Sony Confirms PlayStation Home Launch Soon, Maybe Next Week?

50°
298w ago - Jack Buser, the director of PlayStation Home has confirmed that the launch of PlayStation Home is imminent, although he would not get into the specific details of the exact date of release.

In related news, mainstream news site TimesOnline stated yesterday, "To try Home, which is slated for release in the next 10 days, players must download a piece of free software from Sony's PlayStation store onto their own PS3."

If accurate, this would put a PlayStation Home public release on track for the rumored December 17 date previously reported.

To quote: Amid rumors of a December launch for PlayStation Home, SCEA has confirmed to Joystiq that the social platform's public, open beta phase will arrive before the end of calendar year 2008, as we've been hearing for some time.

"We've been saying it will launch by the end of calendar year 2008," PlayStation Home director, Jack Buser, responded when asked about a December release. "And that's getting very, very close," he concluded, laughing.

"Launch is imminent," Buser confirmed - although neither he nor an SCEA rep were willing to divulge an exact day of...
