19w ago - Sony Associate Product Marketing Manager Cristian Cardona of Software Marketing has shared a brand new Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time PS3 gameplay video below today.
To quote: Happy New Year from the Sly gang! 2012 was full of fantastic gaming goodness. Hopefully you've found some favorites (I know I have - Persona 4 Golden, anyone?) that you're still playing, but we're sure you're already looking ahead to what's landing in 2013.
By the looks of it, 2013 is looking just as good with the upcoming release of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time! Sly and the gang are back on February 5th for $39.99 on PlayStation 3 and $29.99 on PS Vita. If you buy the PS3 copy, you'll receive the digital PS Vita version from PSN at no additional cost.
Today we're here to give you a taste of some of the new gameplay you'll get to experience. In case you missed it, we had an IGN Live session right before the holidays, with Glen Egan and Mat Kraemer from Sanzaru Games showing off the first few hours of the game.
In that preview you got a glimpse of some of the gameplay mechanics, Sly's samurai costume, his Japanese ancestor Rioichi Cooper, and a look at one of the vibrant lush environments Sly will be visiting as he travels through time. In this new gameplay video below, you'll get to...
37w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has made available an HD video of The Last of Us PS3 PAX Theater Gameplay demo below today.
To quote: Pax Prime was a blast! We were amped to publicly show off our behind-closed-doors gameplay demo of The Last of Us that only a very select few media members saw at E3.
If you weren't able to make it out to Seattle we don't want to leave you out (or leave you watching someone's illicit shaky-cam YouTube video) so here it is:
This demo highlights narrative exploration through interactive prompts, environmental puzzles, the balance of power AI, and some of the dynamic stealth elements you'll be able to use to plan Joel and Ellie's survival.
How many resources are at your disposal? Do you go offensive or defensive? You'll have to keep calm, think, and rely on your partner, Ellie, as you survive and make your way westward.
We can't thank you enough for the reception we've received so far for The Last of Us. At PAX Prime, we had some awesome conversations, saw some amazing things, and met some truly dedicated fans.
You guys and gals make all our hard work that much more rewarding - thank you.
48w 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.
94w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Product Marketing Specialist Derek Osgood has posted up a new gameplay video today spotlighting Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One - Up Your Arsenal with These Tools of Destruction.
To quote: The first thing that comes to mind when most people think of Ratchet & Clank (aside from Qwark's dashing good-looks and unflappable courage) is the incredible arsenal of weaponry.
The Insomniac Games team has always prided themselves on delivering out-of-this-world weaponry that gives you all kinds of wacky ways to turn your enemies into space dust.
In honor of that long lineage of weaponry, we're kicking off our gameplay video series with four videos highlighting the weapons you'll find in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
Check out this first video in the series and get a look at the Combuster, Darkstar Fission Tether, Warmonger, and Thundersmack in action.
Don't forget to keep checking back here for the rest of our Gameplay Series as we highlight a different aspect of All 4 One with each video, including the rest of the game's unique weapons!
In it you'll find more footage on combat, augmentations, in-game menus, and upgrade trees than we've ever publicly shown. If you pay attention, you might even sneak a peek at our hacking mini-game and a weapon modification that toys with the term "hand cannon."
And to those of you who think you've seen everything after watching the leaked footage (yeah, we know it exists...), to quote legendary Canadian rock group Bachman Turner Overdrive, "you ain't seen nothin' yet."
In other news, I'm pleased to announce that I and other members of the studio are presently readying content to distribute specifically to this great blog.
After spending four challenging but passionate years developing a sequel to one of the most revered videogames of all-time, everyone involved can't wait to talk. We're very, very excited, and we hope you are too. See you all soon!
