6w ago - Roll7 Director Tom Hegarty shared a video explaining the Career Mode in OlliOlli on PlayStation Vita below today.
To quote: Hello! It was back in June that we last posted here. At that point we were about to embark on our first E3 trip with a very early build of the game.
Needless to say a lot has changed since then! Player physics have been tweaked, we've redesigned a ton of grindable assets and we've also settled on the final modes of the game (there are four in total!).
In this post we want to concentrate on the most important game mode, Career, as it helps you unlock both Spots Mode and Rad Mode as well as preparing you for the do-or-die, risk it all, Daily Grind.
In Career you are confronted with the task of completing 50 Levels split across five stages: Urban, Junkyard, Port, Base and Neon, with 10 levels per Stage. The levels are split into 'Amateur' and 'Pro' to help the player skill-up as they progress. The Amateur levels follow a linear path - complete Urban 1 to unlock Urban 2, Complete Urban 5 to Unlock Junkyard 1.
However, merely completing a level is least of your worries! Each level has five challenges, two of which are always score challenges, one based on overall score...
7w ago - XSEED Games Localization Manager Ryan Graff announced today that Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is coming to both PS3 and PS Vita in 2014.
To quote: Since we first announced our action RPG Ragnarok Odyssey ACE back in May, we've gotten all kinds of questions, the most popular among them being, "What exactly is Ragnarok Odyssey ACE?" Fans want to know if it's a DLC expansion for the original Ragnarok Odyssey, if it's a whole new game, whether your character and/or story progress carries over, and so on.
Because I've got a minute, in between proofreading ACE's script and heading out to the voiceover studio, I wanted to answer some of those questions now.
Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is a full game - a revised and expanded version of the original Ragnarok Odyssey. We'll be releasing it early next year in North America for both Vita and PS3, and up to four players will be able to cross-play between the two platforms.
Both versions will retail for $39.99. As a "thank you" to returning players on the handheld, ACE's Vita version will ship with a bonus soundtrack CD, with 25 songs - including one very nice composition from Nobuo Uematsu, called "Roar of the Black Dragon."
Players with existing Ragnarok Odyssey saves can import their character's physical appearance, voice, job class,...
7w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco announced today that The Wolf Among Us is coming to PlayStation Vita this Fall complete with a video trailer below.
To quote: Hey everyone! We're super happy to announce that The Wolf Among Us, the latest episodic series from Telltale Games, is coming to PS Vita for download later this fall!
What's this "Wolf" stuff about? Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series, The Wolf Among Us is an often violent, mature and hard-boiled thriller where the characters and creatures of myth, lore and legend are real and exist in our world.
These aren't quite the characters you might remember from childhood stories though. Playing as Bigby Wolf - the big bad wolf in human form - you'll discover that the brutal, bloody murder of a Fable is just a taste of things to come.
If you've already played The Walking Dead on PlayStation 3 or PS Vita, you'll be familiar with the gameplay in The Wolf Among Us. It's all about choice and consequence, but we've definitely upped the ante (especially in the action sequences)!
In case you missed it the first time around, be sure to check out the recent PlayStation Blogcast with Episode 1 co-director Nick Herman for more details on the...
7w ago - Project Lead Sanabu Washizuka confirmed today that Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God hits PS Vita consoles on December 10th, 2013.
To quote: Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God, which tells the tale of a young, aspiring sorceress named Pupuru, will launch for PS Vita on December 10th. Pupuru is on a quest to save her friend's curry restaurant from the big bad curry chain that's moved in.
With the help (or not so much help) of a cast of wacky and strange characters - including the grumpy-but-lovable creature, Kuu - Pupuru's quest to find ingredients to make the legendary curry becomes a delectable adventure fun for just about anyone.
Despite Sorcery Saga's quirky and cute storyline, it offers players truly challenging gameplay. Sorcery Saga is more than just heading to your local curry house and eating tasty morsels of deliciousness; it's a turn-based RPG that allows players to move freely around a dungeon in a grid-like system.
Once players encounter an enemy, they'll be able to attack or use items or skills to fend off the onslaught of creatures. Let's delve deeper into Sorcery Saga's gameplay and see what this game is all about!
Sorcery Saga is a roguelike dungeon crawler. Fundamentally, roguelike gameplay gives players permanent consequences...
7w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with details on the new PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases for the upcoming week below today!
To quote: Don your cape and cowl - the Batman Arkham series is readying its return, along with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It's a tremendous week of superheroes and cybernetics in this week's Drop.
Lauded for its gritty visuals and stellar play, the Arkham games have garnered a huge following in the world of gaming. That tradition is sure to continue with Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to Rocksteady's revolutionary first two games in the series.
The latest Batman features the intense, single-player experience you'd expect from an Arkham game, but will also include a robust online suite for gamers to compete within.
But Batman isn't the only dark hero making a comeback this week. Adam Jensen, with all his powerful augmentations, slinks back to PS3 in Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut. An enhanced version of the already well-loved original, the Director's Cut includes The Missing Link DLC, as well as other improvements.
If those don't strike your fancy and you'd rather catch up on some fan favorites, check out the two different 2K compilations - Essentials and Power Pack - which both feature a strong lineup of well-loved...
