74w ago - Today Creative Lead Angel Gonzalez has posted up a fresh video on The Walking Dead video game spotlighting both Stealth and Scent for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Picture this: you're moving through an abandoned convenience store in the middle of the day, and light is pouring in through the front windows.
The shelves have been ransacked and only a few items remain. You stop to investigate a roll of bandages on the shelf and, feeling these will come in handy later, you grab them and turn to leave.
A Walker grabs you and leans in for a taste of flesh! You struggle against his weight but can't quite fight him off. His rancid breath is thick in the air between you as his mouth opens for a bite.
Mustering all of your strength you push just hard enough to get a few inches of separation and then... You jam the blade of your knife through his temple and he slumps to the ground at your feet amid an explosion of blood and brain!
After taking a final look around, you see that no others Walkers realize you're there. You slip out of the store and continue toward your destination.
This is the world of The Walking Dead, a world where you can never feel safe because any moment may be your last. This is life, dealing with the constant threat of the...
74w ago - This weekend Atlus has confirmed that Persona 4 Arena will indeed be the first PS3 region-locked video game for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
Up until now, all games (not Blu-ray movies) have been region-free on the PS3, however, the Atlus representative stated to EGM that "Persona 4 Arena will be region-locked in all territories on both PS3 and 360."
Sony developers have been able to region-lock PlayStation 3 games since PS3 Firmware update 3.30, although publishers didn't utilize the option until the PS3 3.50+ SDK.
From Atlus Staffer lol, forums via Forum to quote: "Sorry for the delayed confirmation, but yes, the PS3 version game will be region-locked. I certainly can't offer details as to why, but there might be an official response at some point.
To reiterate, our version of the game works for the North and South America regions. Also keep in mind that both the NA and JP versions have both English and Japanese text/voice options, making them nearly identical. I'm unsure of what the case will be for the EU version."
To quote from the official Press Release: Friends of...
Below are the changes from his blog, as follows: Here is a small update for They Do Not Die 2 along with its first Windows release.
I've added blood and corpses. On Wii and PS3 they quickly shrink until they disappear but on Windows they fade instead of shrink (which I think looks a lot better) and there can be more of them in the game world at a time which means that they disappear more slowly.
I've also made a handful of minor and most likely unnoticeable changes (mostly related to city generation).
78w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble has made available a video today spotlighting Sleeping Dogs on PS3 while discussing the art of telling stories through games.
To quote: New from developer United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios is Sleeping Dogs, the stylish tale of undercover cop Wei Shen and his journey through the murky world of the Hong Kong Triads.
Executive producer Stephen van der Mescht of United Front Games took time out at E3 2012 to explain how Bruce Lee and PlayStation 2 classic Bully have helped shape this extremely promising title, and why we're seeing gaming leave its teenage obsessions behind.
What is it about Hong Kong that inspires?
Stephen: So many things. Its history in cinema, in martial arts, kung fu, everything as far back as Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, John Woo. What's interesting for us is seeing those older action movies and the new wave of Hong Kong cinema like Infernal Affairs and that shift towards more serious story telling.
There's such a richness there and, from a gameplay standpoint, you think...
