To quote: Hi everyone! I can't believe it's been a year, but here we are celebrating another PS Vita anniversary!

The platform has greatly transformed in the past year, and the passionate support and personal stories I've heard from our development community have been truly inspiring. Plus exciting things are on the horizon, including the launch of our new slimmer model PS Vita this spring.

In the meantime, we wish a big "thank you" to our fans for being a part of our community. Starting tomorrow, enjoy the week-long PS Vita Anniversary Sale which will discount some amazing titles.

Deception IV: Blood Ties Hits PS3 and PlayStation Vita on March 25th

100°
23w ago - Sony Producer Keisuke Kikuchi announced today that Deception IV: Blood Ties hits PS3 and PlayStation Vita on March 25th, 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: The Deception series was born from the fusion of two gameplay concepts: playing as an evil character and using traps as weapons. The combination of these features creates a truly unique gameplay experience - one in which you can plan and lay out traps, lure enemies into them, find the right timing to activate them, and enjoy the reactions of your victims.

The thrill and anticipation as you watch for that perfect moment to press the button and activate a trap is a feeling we really strove to capture for players in Deception IV: Blood Ties, coming to PS3 and PS Vita March 25th.

The real fun, however, lies in combining these traps into combos. When your enemy slips on a Banana Peel, you could follow it up by pushing him into position with the Nudge Wall, picking him up with the Claw, and then finally taking him out with a strategically-placed arrow, for example.

Players can take advantage of the themed traps that come with each stage, and combine them with their own equipped...
 

Gunslugs on PlayStation Vita: Developer Q and A is Detailed

50°
23w ago - Abstraction Games Creative Director Tj'ien Twijnstra shared a Gunslugs PlayStation Vita Developer Q and A with PS Vita fans below today!

To quote: Hey everyone! I'm extremely excited that Gunslugs is finally coming to its natural home, PS Vita, on February 18th. To celebrate the launch, we're offering a 20% discount for all PlayStation Plus members during the first week, so don't miss out!

For the occasion, I figured I'd give you guys a sneak peek at the porting process of Gunslugs; or as we like to call it, an "adaptation" process.

As I have no technical skills whatsoever, I interviewed Rutger Janssen, one of our elite programmers, and Ralph Egas, CEO and [Register or Login to view links] Mastermind. Both developers were involved with the Gunslugs adaptation.

Tj'ien Twijnstra: Rutger, could you tell us a bit about the adaptation process? How does something like that work?

Rutger Janssen: After we determined the base version, the first step is to strip the game code of all the platform specific functions; only the game code remains. Then we take it through our in-house developed tool chain so the basic language is converted from Objective C to C++. Unfortunately, tools are never perfect, so here and there I needed to manually...
 

Where Do Babies Come From: Conception II on PlayStation Vita

50°
24w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin introduces Where Do Babies Come From: Conception II on PlayStation Vita today with details below.

To quote: As the hero in Conception II, you'll quickly learn that the seven heroines you meet and begin to form relationships with are an important aspect for surviving the game's deadly labyrinths.

But in addition to being a strong combatant by your side, the heroines also help you create an army of Star Children warriors through a magic ritual. Those Star Children are what we're going to focus on in today's Conception II update.

Making Star Children is called "Classmating" in the game (yes, really), but in order to do so, you must have a good relationship with the heroine. The stronger your bond with the mother, the more powerful your offspring will be, and there's also hereditary traits the children get as well.

Star Children inherit elemental affinity, stat focus, stat distribution, and even hair color; so Narika's kids will always have high TEC (hit/crit chance), while you can count on Feene's children for big defense. Of course, there's always the chance for abnormalities, but we'll leave that for players to find out on their own.

A Star Child's stats determine which classes are available to it. There are thirty classes to choose...
 

Toukiden: The Age of Demons is Out Today on PlayStation Vita

50°
24w ago - KOEI Co Ltd Producer Kenichi Ogasawara announced that Toukiden: The Age of Demons is out today on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Today's the day to become a Slayer and save the world from the Oni's destruction!

The most exciting aspect of Toukiden: The Age of Demons is the "targeted destruction system" where players can feel the exhilaration of severing parts of the Oni's body and destroying them. Players can choose from six different weapons, each with their own original attack methods and attributes.

Using powerful attacks to slash, thrust and crush parts of the enormous enemy, I think it might excite the natural instincts of players.

It is difficult to defeat the Oni, however, just by attacking them. By destroying parts of the Oni, the life energy that exists within them will be drawn to the surface. Attacking this life energy will truly damage the Oni.

However, Oni not only possess an enormous life force, they are able to regenerate parts that are cut off - and these regenerated parts become even more powerful.

The severed Oni parts that have fallen to the ground can be permanently destroyed through the Ritual of Purification, and this prevents the body part from being regenerated. Thus, in order to defeat the Oni, the destruction of body...
