Video: Closure at Fantastic Fest 2011: New Visuals for PSN Launch

100°
134w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some new video footage today from Fantastic Fest 2011 showcasing Closure's new challenges and visuals for its PSN launch below.

To quote: "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" The world of Closure, an upcoming PSN exclusive, pushes this philosophical question to the limit. If you don't see that tree, not only doesn't it make a sound - it doesn't even exist.

As Austin's Fantastic Fest kicked off last night, PlayStation hosted an indie arcade filled with games coming exclusively to PSN. You might be familiar with most of the titles on display, as we've talked quite a bit on the Blog about Journey, Retro/Grade, and Okabu. As the developers were setting up their stations, I was immediately drawn to a title that we only just introduced you to: Closure.

Closure is being developed by just two full-timers: Lead Designer and Programmer Tyler Glaiel and Artist John Schubbe. Glaiel guided me through the early parts of the game, and answered a few questions for PlayStation.Blog readers.

134w ago - Capcom Product Manager Mike Lunn has announced today that next Wednesday (Tuesday in North America) Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD is hitting PSN and will be 50% off for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

To quote: More classic Resident Evil horror is heading to the PlayStation Network next week with Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD! Claire Redfield, after narrowly escaping Raccoon City, is searching for her brother Chris.

Captured while sneaking around an Umbrella facility and snooping for leads, Claire is hauled off to a maximum security prison installation on Rockfort Island. While making her escape, she realizes the island is being overrun by zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons.

Claire meets another prisoner, Steve Burnside, who is also looking to escape ... but will they be able to work together to make it out alive? The island is veiled in secrets and the family behind the Umbrella Corporation has a deadly agenda of their own.

Disgaea 4 PS3 Japanese Translation - Alpha Version Patcher Out!

1450°
134w ago - Here's big update on Disgaea 4 Translation progress.

Today, we (Tidusnake666, Tobster7, Alexmagno) have finally been able to fix dialogues bugs. That means, that apart from some menu entries, the game is all in English text (we decided to exclude sound patching option, because it's still asynched, so you'll have japanese voices - if you don't like them - turn them off )

Yeah, you've read it right, now everyone can enjoy story! Dialogues, items, skills, pretty much everything is translated!

Instructions:

0. Make a backup of your Disgaea 4 JAP game (BLJS-10095), and place it somewhere, preferably on the root of the drive (there's no spacebar nor special chars problems, but it's more convinient this way), i.e - "C:\BLJS10095"

1. Donwload patcher (Pre-beta version) http://www.multiupload.com/V2AR162QI2 , extract it somewhere and run D4Trans.exe.

2. Ensure "Translate EBOOT" is checeked and the default START.DAT patching method is checked ("1: Glyphicate all"). Later, if you'll have some troubles you can always repatch it.

3. CLick "START!" and choose location of your Disgaea 4 dump. Patcher has a lot of fool-proff functions, so it won't accidently patch the wrong version...
