Video: Armored Core V Preps PS3 for Deep Multiplayer Action

200°
116w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has shared some video footage today of Armored Core V prepping the PS3 community for some deep multiplayer action below!

To quote: FromSoftware, developer of last fall's critically acclaimed Action-RPG Dark Souls, has been spreading bullets from mech-to-mech for nearly 15 years since the very first Armored Core premiered on the PSone back in 1997.

So needless to say, when it comes to intense metal-shredding action and hardcore strategy, the team at FromSoftware knows what they're doing... but will you?

Armored Core V hits consoles across North America on March 20th, and when it does, we at Namco Bandai Games want everyone up to be up to speed on all of the ins and outs on what it will take to survive while piloting the Armored Cores (or "ACs") in the dusty, shrapnel-laden world full of limitless online gameplay possibilities.

I've been learning more and more from the team about Armored Core V over the last few months between bouts in Soulcalibur V, and the sheer level of detail and customization here has put my jaw on the...

Video: Starhawk Space Battles at PAX 2011, MLG and More

139w ago - SCEA Senior Producer Harvard Bonin shared some video footage showcasing Starhawk Space Battles at PAX 2011, MLG and more today.

To quote: It has been a wild and crazy few months since we announced in May. E3, Comic-Con, Gamescom... and now PAX and MLG!

It has really been an incredibly exciting time for us and we truly appreciate all of your support. We announced the title back on May 5th at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX, and it's been a sweet ride ever since!

It's easy for us to tell everyone how cool the game is, but we think it's much more believable if it comes from the fans directly. So, I've included a video from some of our great fans at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks ago right after they got to play the game. Here's what they had to say!





Next up is PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend, August 26th - 28th. We'll be on hand to show off our new space station level, the same environment we showed Gamescom last week....but it damn well deserves an encore.

You'll be able to play with the jet packs and prox mines all in the friendly confines of space so come by the show floor and check us out! I'll be there running the observer cam and will also be giving...
 

Outland Hits PSN This Spring, Includes Two Co-Op Modes & More

50°
161w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed today that Outland is hitting PSN this Spring with two Co-Op Modes and more, as follows:

Last fall, I got a first look at Outland, a side-scrolling action game that casts you as an urban sophisticate-turned-spiritual warrior.

The dreamlike visuals, fluid platform mechanics, and sharp sword-based combat pointed to a fascinating PSN game.

Since then, developer Housemarque (creators of PSN classics Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD has been busy fleshing out the game with details that will make fans of the classic 2D side-scroller Castlevania: Symphony of the Night beam with delight.

A gorgeously illustrated introductory cinematic introduces you to the protagonist, a nameless, faceless modern-day urban dweller haunted by visions of a vast wheel, endlessly turning.

Maddened by the visions and unable to find relief, the protagonist seeks out a mystic shaman who guides him on a path of spiritual awakening and alerts him to a timeless, cyclical battle with a pair of god-like Sisters who created the world and now seek to destroy it. Guess what? The fate of the world is now in your hands. Lucky you!

"The Sisters are the final bosses in the game," explained Producer Adam Sarasohn....
