16w ago - Alien: Isolation Animator Simon Ridge announced that the title is officially out today on PS4 and PlayStation 3 platforms with details below.

To quote: Alien: Isolation is out today on PS4 and PS3, and it's designed to capture the style and horror of the 1979 sci-fi classic.

To celebrate, two members of the development team join PlayStation.Blog for a look into the rich, complex process of bringing the iconic killer to Alien: Isolation.

Animating the Alien

My name is Simon Ridge and I'm an animator on Alien: Isolation. My main focus while working on this game has been animating the Alien and helping to bring this character to life. At the beginning of every task in animation, I always start by researching, gathering influences, and surrounding myself with everything I can to do with that character.

On Alien: Isolation we had an abundance of reference material; this helped massively in developing a good idea of the psyche of the Alien and the world it inhabits, and acted as a good grounding point if we ever strayed too far. 20th Century Fox kindly gave us brilliant information from their archives.

When it came to creating a style of movement and physicality for the Alien, I had to look a bit further than just the films and artwork. During...

17w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin announced that Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is out today on PS3 with details below, to quote:

[Register or Login to view links] is the sequel to the fighting game spin-off of the Persona franchise, Persona 4 Arena, but it's so, so much more than just an update.

Characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 4 are thrust into a fighting tournament, which continues the story after the conclusion of the RPG Persona 4.

This story is canon for the Persona franchise, and takes place almost immediately after the conclusion of P4A, which itself is just a few weeks after the end of Persona 4.

P4AU picks up where the original Arena game left off, with six new players joining the P-1 Climax tournament. The new characters include Persona 3 and 4 favorites Junpei, Rise, Yukari, and Ken & Koromaru, along with series newcomers Sho Minazuki and Sho Minazuki (it's confusing, I know.. But the story explains it).

There are also three DLC characters: Adachi, Marie, and Margaret - Adachi even has his own story! Story mode is also retooled to be more streamlined for the two major arcs (P3 and P4 story). Plus, in addition to the Adachi story DLC, we're offering the original story as DLC too.

Below are the details, to quote: Get a full dose of anime culture today! Short Peace has finally arrived in the Americas with an anime movie and game sold as one, exclusively for PS3!

If you haven't heard of it yet, Short Peace is a film anthology that features works by the legendary anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo, who is best known for his popular dystopian cult film Akira.

The project includes four short films with various settings and themes throughout Japan's history from ancient to modern-day Japan, and was originally created to celebrate the unique qualities of Japanese culture.

We're proud to say that one of the short films, Possessions, was nominated for a 2014 Academy Award for best Animated Short Film. It tells the story of a lone traveler who is confronted by unusual spirits in an abandoned shrine.

Combustible is a spectacular tale of love, honor, and firefighting in ancient Japan. Gambo sets a mysterious white bear defending the royal family from a monstrous red demon. A Farewell to Arms tells the story of a tour-de-force saga of men battling robotic tanks in apocalyptic Tokyo.

These short films are book ended by a 2D side-scrolling...

17w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow shared a video today announcing that both Eliza and PSN Avatars from Skullgirls Encore are out today on PSN.

To quote: It's been a few months since we released our second Indiegogo-funded DLC character, Big Band. I'm happy to announce that Eliza, our third character, will be released today in Skullgirls Encore.

Eliza is a diva with a dark secret, and our most ambitious character to date. Eliza fights by manipulating her own blood to attack her enemies, constantly shape-shifting into a variety of Egyptian mythological symbols and cultural icons.

Our creative director, Alex Ahad, has meticulously researched Egypt's lore and packed nearly every one of Eliza's 1,548 frames with references.





Eliza can also summon her bodyguards, Albus and Horace, as well as dislodge her skeletal Parasite, Sekhmet, making her one of our most varied and dynamic characters to date.

Eliza's story mode is our most comprehensive yet. With more than 80 pieces of art, it dives deep into Skullgirls' lore and reveals a lot of the inner workings of the Skullgirls universe. Definitely not to be missed!

And finally, as we always do with our DLC characters, Eliza will be completely...
