Llamasoft: TxK Out Today: The History, Development and Gameplay

50°
28w ago - Llamasoft Founder Jeff Minter confirmed that TxK is out today on PS Vita, with details on the title's history, development and PlayStation Vita gameplay below.

To quote: TxK is the latest in a particular genre of arcade-style shooters which can be described as "neo-retro".

These games are characterised by gameplay inspired by arcade games of old, but take advantage of modern hardware to provide graphics and audio that far surpass anything that was possible back in ancient times.

Often they take as inspiration some aspect of an older display style and, through modern graphics hardware and techniques, seek to create an experience that is evocative of its ancestry but far nicer-looking.

You've all seen games like "[Register or Login to view links]", where the enemies and player characters are made of glowing lines.

These line-based displays go back to an old, obsolete yet beautiful display technology that was used in the arcades, called "vector graphics".

Back then it was not possible to generate pixel-based displays that had a high resolution, and as a result images in games tended to look blocky, as if made out of bricks. "Vector graphics" was a different way of driving a graphics display, causing...
 

Video: Atomic Ninjas on PS3 and PS Vita: First Gameplay Trailer

200°
58w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska posted up the first gameplay trailer below today for Atomic Ninjas on both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: This is Jakub from Grip Games. A few weeks ago, I introduced you to our newest creation - Atomic Ninjas, for PS3 and PS Vita. I'm back with the very first gameplay trailer, to show you exactly what Atomic Ninjas is all about!

This 2.5D competitive shooter/platformer is going to be one of the most insane experiences you'll ever have with your PS3 and PS Vita! You'll fight in arenas full of danger against crazed ninjas in intense and funny matches. In order to win, you'll have to outsmart and outflank your opponents.

As you can see in the trailer, you cannot directly kill other ninjas (thanks to massive amounts of radiation and their healthy lifestyle). But there are dozens of conveniently placed hazards, like lasers, lava pits and fire that will do the job! You just need to find a way to get your opponents there and not become a roasted turkey yourself!





To help you in this uneasy task, we have added lots of weapons and super abilities. You'll be able to become invisible, fly on a rocket, use telekinesis, become an unstoppable hulk for a few moments, and many...

200°
91w ago - Wired Productions Product Manager Sean Walsh has shared a video today showcasing the gameplay in Let's Fish Hooked On for the PS Vita handheld console!

Below are the details, to quote: As we edge closer to the release of Lets Fish! Hooked On we're very excited to share the first official trailer with the PlayStation community, exclusively, to show some of the features that we first revealed on this very blog back in September. It's good to be back.

With this video we hope to demonstrate just how well-suited this game's fun, arcade style is to the PS Vita, whilst giving you more of a look at the variety of gameplay experiences you can expect from the first ever full-scale (our one and only pun - honest) anime-styled fishing game.

This is the first time developer, SIMS, (the team behind SEGA Bass Fishing), have developed a fishing game featuring anime-style characters; and it was built with the PS Vita's sleek and powerful capabilities firmly in mind.

Check out the trailer here:





Let's Fish! Hooked On is a quirky, fun and innovative fishing game, and as a PS Vita exclusive, it was designed to take advantage of a platform that was built to make the most of digital content.
 

Videos: Zen Studios KickBeat Gameplay and Zen Pinball 2 Updates

50°
115w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy is here today with a KickBeat PS Vita gameplay video and some Zen Pinball 2 updates from this year's E3 convention.

To quote: Zen Studios is fresh off an exciting and successful E3. Although our presence was modest, we still made a big impact.

KickBeat for PS Vita won Destructoid's Best of Rhythm E3 award, and Zen Pinball 2 was nominated for Best of E3 2012 by IGN and Best Portable Game by Destructoid. We are extremely honored to be included alongside the industry's best!

KickBeat sure received a positive response at E3. We think it's because there is nothing else like it, and a lot of people caught on to that.

There were also some people who simply told us we were crazy when they watched us play, but once they got their hands on the game they had BIG smiles on their faces. We have some new video that was released right before and then during E3, we wanted to make sure you guys got a chance to view as well.

The first video is the intro story chapter to KickBeat, setting up our Kung Fu style cheesy story. All of these story scenes are hand animated, and yes, we hired professional voice actors. As a matter of fact, at least one of the actors we've used came by the Sony booth to say "hi," as they are all from Los Angeles.
