126w ago - Today Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a Resistance 3 'full circle' PlayStation 3 development diary video for fans.
To quote: This one focuses on bringing back some of the classic Resistance: Fall of Man gameplay like the weapon wheel and the great heritage that Ratchet & Clank has provided the Resistance franchise.
There is a ton of exciting news about Resistance 3 these days. You hopefully saw all of the preview coverage that hit yesterday. There's much more to come, as next week, we will be staging a Resistance 3 panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 21st at 5 p.m. in Room 7AB.

126w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today that the Catherine demo is hitting PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: We're so excited to reveal that tomorrow (7/12), we'll be releasing a demo for our upcoming game that explores of the psychology and horror of relationships, commitment, and love–Catherine.
What exactly is the game's story? What kind of play style can you look forward to? All such questions and likely many more will be answered with the demo. And all you have to do is download it and play!
The demo will take you through the opening hour or so of the game, learning about Vincent (the protagonist) and his life. Catherine is all about its story and characters; the fact that you'll meet Vincent, his girlfriend, and his close circle of buddies in your short time with the demo should give you a great idea of what to expect in the full game.
And then there are the nightmares... You'll have to contend with a couple of those. The experience should give you an idea of just how much stress Vincent deals with throughout the game. And just how much fun you're in store for if you opt to pick a copy up.
We're also thrilled to start teasing glimpses of the finished goodies to be found inside the limited...
From the ReadMe, roughly translated: Matercrack / Des-flash-Emp_dev - Unpacking and packing of dev_flash
This is a script used to unpack and pack the PUP dev_flash the team using tools fail0verflow, kakaroto and geohot, although modified a bit for better performance.
0. Put these tools in a folder called flash-Des-Emp_dev
1. You need to have unpacked the PUP
2. Extract the files in the folder update_files.tar script
3. Run the script and ready
Note: This script creates 3 folders dev_flash, dev_flash_temp dev_flash3 and the first two are simply dev_flash fully unpacked and the third is the creation of folders dev_flash .* files, this could change what you wanted (I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO TOOL) and modify the script to skip to step packaging.
WARNING: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE THAT MAY CAUSE THIS TOOL BE CAREFUL.
126w ago - Today SCEE's Roland Fauster has unveiled a new video trailer for Kylotonn's The Cursed Crusade which is heading to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system soon.
To quote: Today we`re taking a look at Kylotonn and their upcoming PS3 title, The Cursed Crusade. Some of you may know these guys from the popular PC FPS Bet on Soldier: Blood Sports.
For their most recent project they stepped away from the shooter genre without suffering a loss in brutality. Their action-adventure, The Cursed Crusade, invites the player to step back to the period of the fourth crusade.
As this marks Kylotonn's debut on the PS3, we took the time to interview their co-founder, Yann Tambellini.
Mature RPG-games (or in your case Action-Adventures) from western developers are often set in medieval times and include mystic elements. What makes this mythology so appealing?
Every time we go medieval, we're looking back into our own past, into what we have been, what we have done. There might be some kind of dark fascination when we look at the barbarians we were; some kind of voyeurism. But what makes this era so appealing is the supposed absence of laws. In a medieval setting, we can use characters that are left to their own devices.
