On PSN and PS3 Blu-ray, Dead Island Riptide brings back the franchise's explosive mix of open-world gameplay, co-op first-person action and Action RPG elements to fans worldwide. Also included is an eclectic mix of hero characters, each with with their own backstory.
Also on PSN and PS3 Blu-ray, the award-winning Star Trek game casts players for the first time ever as Kirk and Spock in a totally original co-op experience worthy of gamers and fans. Set in the new canon of director and producer J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot, players will be immersed in the game's rich story and action-packed combat.
Dead Island Riptide (Also on PS3 Blu-ray) - The survivors of Banoi thought they had escaped the terrors of the tropical island and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise.
Then their fate took a turn for the worse. Shortly after the battle-hardened team had landed their helicopter on a military ship, a furious storm hits and havoc quickly spreads on board. Suddenly they find themselves struggling for their lives again with all hope drowning in the rising waves.
With invigorating new elements infused into a proven...
Using Saber's technology and development platform, we strive to create digital games that look like retail products. With our first release, God Mode, we wanted to create a lighthearted throwback experience, which focuses on arcade-style action over story. We came up with a classic premise - fighting to get out of Hell - then wrapped it in a third-person shooter with 3D graphics on par with full-price titles.
Finally, we added a slew weapons: plasma launchers, rail guns and what we affectionately call the "buzzsaw," in order to wipe out waves and waves of demonic hordes.
We decided that God Mode should be less about deep narrative and more about action. This approach gave us the ability to really go crazy and build a unique world full of plenty of characters to shoot, blow up, impale and maim.
After making this decision early on in the design process, the designers...
4w ago - Mass Creation Producer Artur Gosk has confirmed alongside a video trailer today that Draw Slasher is coming to PlayStation Vita on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: I'm Artur Gosk of Mass Creation from Warsaw, Poland. This is my first time here, so 'hello' to everyone.
I'm here to introduce you to our first PS Vita release - Draw Slasher. On April 23rd, players can test their fingers in what we believe is the most dynamic drawing game ever made for PS Vita, for $5.99.
Draw Slasher tells a story of Hanzo, not-so-high ninja, whose family was abducted by Pirate Monkey Zombies™. The basic game mechanics are one-of-a-kind - honestly, I don't think they could be any simpler.
The player will tap to run, draw lines to slash, and pinch the screen to pull up the abilities menu. The rest is done by Hanzo. Watch the trailer at the top of this post and see for yourself.
We have prepared three game modes: Story, endless Arcade and Challenges. Story is the main mode, where the player meets Hanzo and aids him in a quest to free his family. They will face various opponents, go up against tricky bosses and finally find out who sent the "rottents" to kidnap Hanzo's family.
4w ago - Today NIS America's Chris King shared a video confirming that Black Rock Shooter The Game comes to PSP on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: My name is Chris King; I recently joined the awesome team here at NISA.
I'm here today to talk about Black Rock Shooter The Game, which hits PSP via PSN next Tuesday for $19.99. Shall we get started? Splendid!
Let me give you a quick rundown of the history of Black Rock Shooter. It all began as a simple illustration by renowned artist Ryohei "Huke" Fuke.
The mysterious yet appealing design of the character inspired the creation of a Black Rock Shooter song (voiced by the ever popular Hatsune Miku), an original video animation, and even an eight-episode anime series. Starting off as a single character design, it has now evolved into an explosive Japanese RPG - not bad!
Alright, let's talk story. The year is 2032 AD, and Earth has been ruthlessly assaulted by alien forces. Nineteen years of nonstop battle now threatens the very existence of humanity. The last hope for human survival is Black Rock Shooter (BRS), a heroine created solely to save planet Earth - she is the ultimate battle android.
But when she is awakened to end the battle once and for all, there are only twelve human beings left...
Also thrown into the mix are three special little mini-games - Gravediggers, Duke Wars!! and Nostril Shot - alongside a wealth of other extras. See our Blog post from earlier today for more.
On PS Vita, prepare to sacrifice some time for the EU debut of the Soul Sacrifice demo. The beefy trial offers you the chance to experience the first chapter of the game, as well as take on additional quests either...
