Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is Now Live on PSN

50°
164w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has announced today that Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is now live on PSN.

To quote: Few game series have as long and storied a history as Wizardry, which is the same age as Mario and helped inspire entire gaming genres.

Much has changed in this series over the years, but the base formula has remained the same: create your avatar, hire some help at the local guild, accept a quest or two, then crawl through a seemingly endless maze of corridors, traps, treasure chests and secret passageways... all in glorious first-person 3D!

But do mind the monsters. Everything from adorable Vorpal Bunnies to giant dragons, to a demonic face made out of corpses is traipsing through these same cavernous depths, always just around the next corner. Once you're spotted, it's time to fight - and if you're not strong, clever or fast enough to take them down, you're going to wind up as a spot on the wall - like all the others.

In the end, it comes down to tweaking your stats, finding or buying new equipment, keeping track of your whereabouts, exploring thoroughly and strategizing like there's no tomorrow. Think Etrian Odyssey, or Dark Spire, or... well... Wizardry!

There are 10 main characters to choose from, consisting...
 

Video: Dark Souls PS3 Q&A: Variety is the Spice of Death

200°
181w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Q&A session and video featuring Dark Souls PS3 dubbed Variety is the Spice of Death today.

To quote: Fans of 2009's PS3-exclusive RPG [Register or Login to view links] are sure to have questions about Dark Souls, which is being produced under the watchful eye of Demon's Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki.

Though the game was formally revealed just days ago, I had a rare opportunity to speak directly with Miyazaki about his plans for Dark Souls. We discussed the game's soul-crushing difficulty (it's going to get harder, not easier), his favorite new feature (a new form of "emotional communication" via Beacon Fires), and the games he's most excited to play in 2011 (hint: UNCHARTED 3).





Sid Shuman: Would you describe Dark Souls as a sequel to Demon's Souls, or a spiritual successor? Does Dark Souls reside in the same universe as Demon's Souls?

Hidetaka Miyazaki, director, Dark Souls: Dark Souls is not a sequel to Demon's Souls by any means. However, it's created by the same producers and director and so the ideologies, concepts, and themes have carried over and are similar. It's a totally new game...
 

Video: Demon's Souls PS3 Dynamic Theme: The Nexus

300°
245w ago - A few months ago we saw some videos of the available PS3 Dynamic / Animated Themes in action, and today another has been added to Sony's library.

Below is a video of the new Demon's Souls PS3 Dynamic Theme: The Nexus which is currently available on Japanese PSN Store for 200 yen.

To quote: "Sony's Demon's Souls dynamic theme shows the Maiden in Black in an empty Nexus, perhaps waiting for you to join her.

Currently, the theme is only available on Japan's PlayStation Store and it costs 200 yen ($2.25).

Demon's Souls has been pretty successful in North America so I imagine Atlus or Sony will release this theme here too."




 

Atlus Warns of Demon's Souls Dangers & Rewards on Halloween

200°
247w ago - Today AtlusAram has unveiled that new dangers and rewards will be lurking in the shadows for those who play Demon's Souls for PS3 online this Halloween. Boo!

Press Release: IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - OCTOBER 29, 2009 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today passed along an ominous warning to online players of the sleeper hit Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.

"Early reports from the Kingdom of Boletaria indicate that the Old One's power grows," announced Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales for Atlus, shuffling awkwardly under the weight of his full set of fluted armor.

"We've discovered that the nefarious Demon will seek to descend the land in pure blackness on All Hallow's Eve. His minions will be more powerful, but the rewards for those who seek to challenge them will be greater as well. We don't know how long this dark tendency will last, but we do advise those prone to controller-into-LCD syndrome to proceed carefully."

Jabbari then cackled as he quickly put a Thief's ring on his finger and disappeared.

Demon's Souls is out now for PlayStation 3 system and retails with an MSRP of $59.99.
 

Demon's Souls is Now Available for PlayStation 3

100°
250w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that Demon's Souls is officially released for Sony's PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: The Kingdom of Boletaria is now open to you, brave adventurers: Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 is now available in retailers across North America.

For months leading up to its release, we've emphasized the game's difficulty level, striving in every instance not to misrepresent the game and to ensure that curious gamers are not caught off guard by the challenges that await them. That said, we don't want anyone to steer clear of the game because of what they've heard. If that is not the perfect segue into some starting tips for new heroes, then I don't know what is.

Mild Spoiler Alert:

Your first task in Demon's Souls, before even jumping into the game world, is to create your character. Demon's Souls offers 10 different player classes, each with different starting stats and equipment.

Unlike many RPGs, Demon's Souls does not punish players for choosing something out of line with their play style. Regardless of which class you pick, you'll be able to eventually do anything another class is more capable of at the start; all it takes is a little extra work.

Therefore,...
